Editors' Review

SlimComputer is designed to help you remove any unwanted programs from your computer to keep things running smoothly. Its specified purpose is to detect and remove all the extra programs a new computer comes with, but it can be used even on older computers to free up space and increase efficiency to get them running like new again.

Pros

Selective aggressiveness: When you first install this program, and then at any time afterwards, you can adjust the aggressiveness level of this program, which will determine what type of programs it will target for removal. It defaults to a moderate setting, but there are also options for Passive, which is recommended for novice users, and Aggressive, which is better for advanced users.

Nice interface: All features are readily available through this program's interface. Even less-experienced users can easily take advantage of all this app has to offer.

Uninstaller option: In addition to the scan and remove options, this program also contains more conventional Uninstaller features. Through this feature, you can look through a list of all programs on your computer, including those that won't show up in a scan as unnecessary, and remove them quickly and thoroughly.

Cons

User-dependent recommendations: In order to determine which programs to recommend for removal, this app relies on input from other users. This is a great idea in theory, but it requires a certain level of participation in order to be useful. Unfortunately, there is not enough information entered for the app to make a determination about a large number of programs at this point, but hopefully this will improve over time.

Bottom Line

SlimComputer is an innovative and convenient way to keep your computer running as efficiently as possible. While some programs can't be evaluated yet due to lack of user data, many common drags on your system will be detected and marked for removal through the app's scanning function. The app is completely free to install and use without limits.
