Editors' Review

+
This simple utility deletes unwanted files created in Windows, but a help file should have been included. Temp File Cleaner doesn't require installation, but you will need Java Runtime Environment 1.6 installed on your system. The program's interface is straightforward. Simple checkbox ticks in the program's settings allow you to select the areas to clean. In addition to Windows temp files, this software deletes temporary Internet files, cookies, the recycle bin, history, and others. The program quickly freed 500MB of disk space in just a few minutes during tests and it offers force deletion. Temp File Cleaner also displays a success or error notice after file deletion so you can easily trace files that weren't removed. While the program is relatively easy to follow, a help guide to outline deletion areas like prefetch, system restore data, and Windows update uninstallers needs to be included. Temp File Cleaner features an excessive search option to look in subfolders, but it isn't clear what methods it's using. With its speedy operation and cheap price, this application is suitable for intermediate to advanced users for efficient file cleaning.

"A very thorough cleaning job!"

December 14, 2013  |  By StuckwithIT

 |  Version: Temp File Cleaner 4.1.1

Pros

I obtained and ran TFC.exe, under the expert guidance of Tech Support Guy (TechGuy.org), as the first step in a sequence of virus diagnostics and fixes. TFC simply removes all the rubbish that clutters up an old, heavily used PC. The program worked beautifully and the immediate speed improvement was amazing.

The credentials and experience of the Tech Support Guy engineers is world-class and I want everyone to know this product has their endorsement!

Cons

None really.

Be warned, though, 'cleaning' will include cookies for sites you wanted to 'remember' your password. You will have to remember them yourself next time you visit, or use the 'forgotten password' links!

Summary

Temp File Cleaner (TFC.exe) "does exactly what it says on the tin", which is, it cleans out your temporary files!

It's disappointing to see a few 1-star reviews, which don't appear to be reviews of this actual product at all.

"Best TFC version yet"

August 11, 2012  |  By murrayju

 |  Version: Temp File Cleaner 4.1.1

Pros

They've added new cleaners and improved the user interface with some color indicators. They are now offering a paid Pro version, that adds even more functionality. This gives me the ability to scan my mapped network drives, and clean all of the computers in my house with a single click! This is well worth the $1 investment. Also, the pro version installer is delivered without any ads whatsoever.

Cons

Can't find any

Summary

You should really take a look at the Pro version. Just click the Buy Now link on the left to be redirected to their website.

"Beware of this download"

August 11, 2012  |  By abigcanadian

 |  Version: Temp File Cleaner 4.1.1

Pros

No Pros THAT I CAN SEE.

Cons

Beware of downloading this software. The software also loads malware that changes your search engine to Incredibar search engine that cannot be removed no matter what you do. This is hijacking your internet searches without your concent. Look up blogs on this malware and be careful. No matter what you do, the change to all your internet programs will happen weather you agree or not.

Summary

Worst Malware I have seen being offered by respected site like CNET

May 07, 2012  |  By jimmcq

"Be extremely wary: Remember, this is freeware."

April 19, 2012  |  By RondoRedux

 |  Version: Temp File Cleaner 4.0

Pros

Easy to download. That's all.

Cons

My Avast! Pro Anti-Virus/Spyware warned me not to open this on my computer but to open in "Sandbox" first. This would allow the program to run without affecting my computer.

Summary

I did not open but deleted the program immediately. Before executing the file notice the red X on the dialog box stating no valid digital signature? That's a hint that something is not right. It may work for you, you may like it, but I value my computer and it's contents to take a risk on a freeware program of dubious benefit.
