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.

"Three apps, this one is not that bad"

December 22, 2014  |  By Mashall III

 |  Version: YAC 5.6.54

Pros

Adwcleaner: like a huge nuclear missile bombed in my computer and destroyed all my installed programs. Then, my computer is just like Moscow going through the world war II. Nothing is left.
SpyHunter: I can see the download link of this app everywhere, so I decided to have a try. As soon as installation completes, the program kept tell me my computer is in great danger, and the only way is to buy their premium product.
yac cleaner: yak haven't brought any troubles to me till now. But I wonder whether it works. Well, the so-called antivirus is a psychological comfort in most conditions.

Cons

The translation into German sucks! The developers just put words in the Google translation tool and get the "translated words". I am a German and I don't like the way you use my home tongue.

Pros

It keeps REAL antimalware companies in business.

Not easy to uninstall. Blocks downloads of Malwarebytes Anti-malware (presumably since this MAM would flag YAC for removal.)

Summary

Keep this program off your computer

"DO NOT-Crashed my computer for hours"

December 09, 2014  |  By willowler

 |  Version: YAC 5.6.54

Pros

im not sure of the pros because it took me 2 hours to start and restart my computer while running the program, until I was finally able to uninstall it as i thought it was the culprit of the crashing. It completely slowed the pc down rather than speed it up and didnt let me run anything else while it "scanned". I am not sure if this works, but I wouldnt recommend it

Cons

dont understand why its got so many good reviews and downloads? hmmm
suspicious.

Summary



Updated on Dec 9, 2014

update is, the only reason i installed it was because there were so many downloads and CNET gave it good review. I always thought cnet didnt have malware in their programs. I also had to do a system restore on my computer.
