Editors' Review

+

Even though we could have done without the nag screen, this free disk cleaning utility performed very well during our tests. Even beginners will appreciate how easy it is to use.

When you first install Wise Disk Cleaner 3 Free, you're taken to the publisher's Web site for more information about the program. Each time we accessed Wise Disk Cleaner 3 Free, we received a nag screen asking if we wanted to upgrade to the paid professional version. It was easily bypassed, but became something of a nuisance. A helpful wizard appeared at start-up, and walked us through the disk cleaning process. First, you choose from a long list of file extensions to include in the cleanup. The next step is to select the drives or folders you want to clean, and choose from a list of cleaning options, such as deleting cookies and temporary files. The last step is to choose to run the program in either auto-run or manual mode, and whether you want the files permanently deleted or sent to your recycle bin. Once we went through the wizard, we were sent to the main user interface to click the Scan button. Considering the task at hand, the program worked extremely fast to pull up all of the junk files according to our specifications. It took a little time for the program to delete and send the files to the Recycle Bin, but we were able to continue working during the process.

Our test computer's performance noticeably improved after running the program. Users of all levels will find Wise Disk Cleaner 3 Free easy to use and effective, and the nag screen was a small price to pay for this freeware utility.

Pros

It cleaned up a bunch of "stuff" that I had no idea was hanging around cluttering up my disk.
After disk cleaning, I wrapped up with a good defragmentation, and noticed a definite improvement in my system responsiveness.

Cons

Not at this time.

"The WORST!............ WINDOWS TERM?NATOR BEWARE!"

December 09, 2009  |  By agnusdei 2000

 |  Version: Wise Disk Cleaner 4.83

Pros

Good interface,
Automatic cleaning
Almost none,sometimes finds junk tem .. cache files.

Cons

Deletes virtual ,critical files
crashes PC.

Summary

I had been using that software until It caused my PC crash and ended up in formatting in September 2009. I downloaded last edition from download.com and used several times as I trusted former edition to some extent. But this was the horrrible whenever finished scan it began to crash step by step. while I was thinking of uninstalling this giant the last scan gave me irrecoverable pain which deleted all the windows files that any user must need.
Finally Igot a rid of that junk.

"Simply Awesome"

December 02, 2009  |  By dynodeanmccabe

 |  Version: Wise Disk Cleaner 4.83

Pros

This program is just every bit as good as their Registry program. Very thorough. Gives you tons of options. Cleans like nothing else. Can't believe how much space it freed up that other programs; paid or not didn't do.

Cons

WAs worried about losing some files or program associations. Not a chance. So no on the cons so far.

Summary

Like i said i was a bit sceptic and concerned, but it did the trick and mean really clean the crap out of this thing. Not losses in programs, executables, etc. Thanks Wise guys. LOL

"Warning: Virus"

December 01, 2009  |  By AriKnight

 |  Version: Wise Disk Cleaner 4.83

Pros

None at this time.

Cons

Eset's NOD32 has reported this as a virus on one of our two household computers. File name: WDC4Free.exe
Variant of: Win32/Induc.A

Summary

Product is questionable and should be looked into further by C-Net.

Updated on Dec 1, 2009

I was going to check downloadable file versions C-Net vs. www.wisecleaner.com to see if they matched, but I use HostsXpert and it blocked their website completely so it can't be good.
