Editors' Review

+

YAC (Yet Another Cleaner) is more than another freeware system cleaner for Windows. It also blocks malware, adware, malicious plug-ins, and other threats. It optimizes system and online speeds, memory, and startup settings. It can even remind you to empty the trash. YAC 6 sports an attractive interface, a more powerful malware scan, and an improved AdBlock.

Pros

Fast and deep: YAC's system cleaner scanned quickly yet found more junk than some popular tools. One-click cleaning also did a thorough job with no ill effects.

Hijack prevention: YAC can lock your browser, home page, and search engine to prevent hijacking, block malicious plug-ins, and secure browser shortcuts and online shopping.

Speed test: Web-based Internet speed test and IP detector tools open directly from YAC's interface or a desktop widget. Other extras include an uninstaller that finds and removes leftover files and folders.

Cons

Alerts and early termination: YAC terminates launched apps if you don't allow them (or whitelist them directly) within a certain timeframe. Though effective, it's a nuisance if you're slow or distracted, and the alerts sliding in and out of the notification area can be annoying.

Bottom Line

YAC might better be called NAC for "Not Another Cleaner," since it's more of a system maintenance toolbox than a mere cleaner. The download offers a free trial of YAC Premium, but the free version has plenty to keep you busy.

Pros

Found nothing.

This is a spyware in the name of Anti spyware.

"non stop pop ups are confusing"

January 22, 2016  |  By DWaegele

2016-01-22 20:20:39  |  By DWaegele

 |  Version: YAC 6.7.69.29146

Pros

I dont know if this was helpful at all

Cons

constant pop up windows & warnings.
Fee to use

Summary

I installed this on a computer that was just purchased. every time I did anything a pop up warning would show up asking something or blocking another. I do see many features that may be useful but the pop ups made it difficult to use my computer. I decided it was best to remove this before something Wrong happened.

"AWESOME! fixed my notebook right up!"

December 31, 2015  |  By arugala

2015-12-31 18:52:47  |  By arugala

 |  Version: YAC 6.7.69.29146

Pros

No monthly fees (everyone thinks they can charge by the month now!-no thank you)
Attractive interface
High ratings from both users and testers on CNET
Does all it says it will and some
Easy to understand

Cons

The only thing i noticed was no green safe search check mark, but they have their own safe search engine, or you can stay with your own at which the check mark would be a nice add. but overall im very happy with this download

Summary

I highly recommend this product, the free version is great, but i had some serious issues recently and would have had to take my notebook to the computer doctor if this had'nt worked.

"It's Tools are effective, BUT watch out!"

November 23, 2015  |  By atunis58041

2015-11-23 08:43:23  |  By atunis58041

 |  Version: YAC 6.7.69.29146

Pros

It's cleaning and monitoring tools seem effective; however, it is VERY intrusive. It removed a number of my programs without my consent (it may have shown a pop-up before removal, but I didn't see 'em)...It offers to install a program to install a hotspot on your computer - a very usefull program.

Cons

VERY intrusive - changes your running programs before providing adequate approval. This software is borderline maleware in my opinion.

Summary

Avoid this program - there are better programs available.

"I am in love with this program."

November 19, 2015

2015-11-19 08:43:10

 |  Version: YAC 6.7.69.29146

Pros

I have had a lot of use out of this program. My computer wouldn't boot up without an error so I used Yac and cleaned it and would boot every time. My second computer was filled with adware that kept high jacking it to different sites. Couldn't find the programs to stop it. This program fixed it in one try. I have only had good results with this program. Easy to use. Easy to load. Speeds up computer boot time. Cleans out deleted programs. Does everything it says it will and more.

Cons

I didn't know how to use it. Wasn't explained very well.

Summary

I will use it on every machine I have. Its dangerous to be on the internet. You get malware and popup on every site you go now. Everyone should use this program to stop it before it gets so you can't even surf the net.

"Malware Beware!!"

November 03, 2015  |  By Athenais

2015-11-03 14:19:49  |  By Athenais

 |  Version: YAC 6.7.69.29146

Pros

None at all!!

Cons

I must say I'm surprised at you Download.com. I thought your downloads were reliable. This "antispyware" is actually malware. It slowed down my computer to snail speed and is very difficult to uninstall. Thanks a bunch!!

Summary

Don't download this ... it slowed my computer down to barely moving and showed a whole lot of rubbish "results". If you want to remove the "results" you have to pay for a subscription, so not freeware at all. Then I tried to uninstall it ... well, that's fun (not!!). Any reputable software I've ever used is very easy to uninstall ... this one just kicks and screams and showers you with pop ups. In one word: DON'T!!
