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.

"Try many, some just mess me up, but this works"

February 25, 2015  |  By LexusFanboy

 |  Version: YAC 6.0.51

Pros

Most of antivirus are promoted to "help you out of virus" or "speed up your computer". But all they want do is to add self-running processes, slow down the PC and ask for money for the superior protect. When I first used this app, I thought it must be yet another crap cleaner that 'persuade' me to buy the premium one. But the free one works very well.

Cons

This one also starts with windows, as one of the reviews mentioned. This ain't good.

"Error during install, won't run."

February 23, 2015  |  By PhotoBoothe

 |  Version: YAC 6.0.51

Pros

None so far, it won't even run!

Cons

1. Error messages during install. 2. Won't run on manual start. 3. (On CNet now, not YAC - Stupid one-line summary box at the top telling me I've erred when I click the 1 star, hadn't typed something yet - as in I KNOW that, let me bloody well FINISH and hit submit before you tell me I haven't included the minimum letter/word count...!)

Summary

Using a Windows PC, Vista Home Premium. (Thank God - 7 is slightly for the birds, Win 8 is something I wouldn't inflict on a bird or any other living thing....)

"Had problems"

February 16, 2015

 |  Version: YAC 6.0.51

Pros

cleaned junk and viruses off computer

Cons

deleted files that cause computer problems

Summary

This cleaner worked good at cleaning all of the junk off of my computer but somehow it deleted registry files or something. No internet connection, can't access system restore, can't access network and sharing center, can't access command prompt. List goes on. ...Now I have to wipe my hard drive and start from scratch.
