Editors' Review

+

YAC (aka Yet Another Cleaner) scans your PC and purges it of annoying or dangerous malware, adware, cookies, and browser plug-ins. It also checks and optimizes the Registry for faster startups and smoother overall operation, and frees storage space by removing seldom-used applications.

Pros

Easy to use: After a quick installation, YAC assesses the health of your PC and then lets you fix detected issues with a single click. The straightforward menu enables you to do quick or deep cleans, evaluate the safety of your Web browser plug-ins, and optimize the Registry, as well as remove applications that take up unwanted space -- always with minimal user intervention.

Fast operation: Both scans and repairs are very rapid; no need to go make a cup of coffee, because you don't have to wait for the scan to finish.

Cons

Registry interference: Diagnostic software can interfere substantially with your system Registry, often with negative results. We suggest sticking to the quicker and superficial cleaning options and meddling as little as possible with your system.

Bottom Line

YAC quickly and effectively scans and fixes your PC, protecting it from a wide range of threats, while requiring few clicks. We recommend it especially to less-experienced users who do not want to get into the technical details of PC cleaning and optimization.

    "As a former employee of Elex, I will tell truth"

    October 11, 2014   |   By Former Employee

    Version: YAC 5.4.58

    Pros

    I have been working in Elex, the developer of YAC, for about two years. Now, I have left St. Paul and worked in a small computer company in Seattle. Three months passed, I still cherish the time I spent in Elex. People there are very friendly and are capable of working together as a team. The management level values the reputation very much. If fault occurs, a meeting is held and a solution is soon prepared.
    I worked as a coder first and then involved in promotion. I can guarantee that no virus is implanted in the product cause we raise the product as a new-born baby. Especially the boss, he required all bugs being cleared at the first time. Therefore, we had to go back to work whenever bugs occur.
    I left the company because of personal issues, but I did have a good memory in Brazil. Regarding to YAC, I think it is a good program, at least when I resigned. To some extent, I was also the maker of it :) I heard that the paid version is about to launch, and I with it could go further.

    Cons

    Some functions could be improved.

    Summary

    It is not easy for an independent software become so famous.

    October 10, 2014   |   By FantacyBull

    Version: YAC 5.4.58

    Pros

    Before I installed YAC in my computer: I press the switch, and have a cup of tea, then have lunch, and take a shower. After all the procedures, my computer can completely boot.
    After I installed YAC: It only takes two minutes after it totally boots.
    YAC saves my computer. Thank you!

    Cons

    I will support YAC forever. It is the best I ever used!

    Summary

    YAC boost my system, it is a good cure!

    I am an office clerk in New York and my everyday life was very monotonous. What's worse, junk files, various kinds of virus and disgusting malware are on my ass. Then, I installed YAC, and it is very effective. Now, I heard that the paid version is about to come. I am looking forward to it.

    Cons

    The app store seems to be useless. I suggest this part to be removed.

    Summary

    A good program makes me work more efficiently!

    Pros

    I still remember the day I first use my computer. It is about twenty years ago. The computer and related products are not as many as it was today.

    Those who slander YAC are very boring. What can you benefit from the slanderous words. You will get punished.
