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.

"Help file included"

March 13, 2009  |  By murrayju

 |  Version: Temp File Cleaner 3.0.1

Pros

Cleans temp files thoroughly and efficiently. The interface is simple and easy to use. Command line options make this great for scripting.

Cons

It doesn't do my laundry.

Summary

Despite what the cnet review states, a help file is included in the zip file, and there is even a help option in the program itself that details the use of all of the features.

"Wow! This is a musthave!"

October 24, 2008  |  By howardferns

 |  Version: Temp File Cleaner 3.0.1

Pros

So fast! Finds and removes more temp files than you would think possible, and it does it in seconds. How does it do it?

Cons

Make sure you go into the Settings box each time before you click on Clean, so that you can untick Cookies, otherwise you'll lose all your logins and passwords, and it'll clear your System restore data files too if you don't untick that.

Summary

Highly recommended.

"Quality app with great improvements!"

June 30, 2008  |  By sftwJunkie

 |  Version: Temp File Cleaner 3.0.1

Pros

Very easy to use, and the new help file makes it clear exactly what is being cleaned. It cleaned up several gigs of garbage in about two minutes on my pc! I like the new command line options, I was able to add a registry entry to automatically clean my C drive every time I log into Windows. Best of all, it's now free! I'll be carrying this around with me on a pen drive at all times...
