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.

"They're great for easily making my desktop fast"

November 26, 2014  |  By billcomton

 |  Version: YAC 5.6.54

Pros

Almost a month ago my pc caught a bug. I had just installed multiple optimizer but none of them worked. And lots of other things were left after uninstalling them. I search for something to clear the problem and YAC was on that list. I installed it and Microsoft antivirus, have not had any troubles since.

Cons

I wish I could donate to you but I am on disability and my bills exceed my income. So I cannot donate...

Summary

I express my thx also on the facebook, thx u guys.

"Bottom line: This is rogue software"

November 26, 2014  |  By OceanLevi

 |  Version: YAC 5.6.54

Pros

A free and easy way to give yourself headaches

Cons

Cons? This entire program is fraudulent and is a con in itself

Summary

As one reviewer mentioned, all of the so-called 5 star reviews are written in poor English and all mention the same points. In fact, check any other web site where users can write reviews or comment and you'll notice the same spelling and grammar errors along with the same fraudulent reviews when it comes to "YAC", including the Wikipedia entry.

The fact that YAC pays for its listing here should make anybody wonder how impartial and genuine this review really is.

"Suspicious 5-star reviews"

November 20, 2014  |  By celigne0

 |  Version: YAC 5.6.54

Pros

Not identified as malware by many antivirus programs (though top-rated antivirus program ESET NOD32 flags it as malware.)

Cons

1. All the reviews on this site award either 5 or 1 stars, nothing in between. Not a good sign.

2. Almost all the 5-star reviews are written with similarly bad English, similar Pros (great tool) and Cons (no problems), similar name types (Spy Murderer, Jingle Dell, Big Dabby, Spamming Killer, etc.), and similar hostility to the 1-star reviews when expressed. Draw your own conclusions.

Summary

Many users of this product have reported at various sites that it wasted hours of their time getting rid of it and cleaning up afterwards. It will therefore be worth your while to invest at least a fraction of that time researching this product online before deciding whether to install it.

No other programs, just yak

"No hesitate, no struggle, just yet another program"

November 18, 2014  |  By Spy Murderer

 |  Version: YAC 5.6.54

Pros

I have tried and experienced lots of free programs: Some claimed they were free. However, they began to ask for money after a few days. Some were totally free but totally useless. Until the day I found YAC, all the situation changed. Although it has a paid version, the free one is enough for me. YAC is my honest friend. I love it so much

Cons

The program keeps updating. Maybe for better functions, I guess.

Summary

Very beautiful interface with strong functions provided.
