Your Cleaner

CNET Editors' review

Your Cleaner is a free maintenance program that promises to rid your systems of unwanted files. It's not the prettiest program to look at, but it quickly and successfully removed all selected files from our system.

The user interface is plain and the command buttons are haphazardly placed around the window, but it's still easy enough to operate. The interface selections change depending on which clean function you select. We first started by scanning our hard drives for unneeded (and unwanted) files. Using the fast scan option, the program very quickly pulled up empty folders and possible privacy infringements. We liked having the ability to manually deselect the items that we didn't want to remove. With a single click, we were able to send all of the found files to our Recycle Bin. Moving on to the Registry feature, the program just as quickly pulled up unnecessary Registry entries. It does offer the ability to back up your Registry before removing any files, but novice users should exercise caution any time a program affects the Registry. And, though it offers a link the publisher's Web site for assistance, the program doesn't offer a viable Help feature. So if you're not comfortable around your Registry, we recommend avoiding this particular feature; deleting Registry files should only be done by experienced users.

The program's Duplicates and Autorun features also let us manage our files and start-up programs. Your Cleaner does a great job of keeping your system running efficiently, even if they layout isn't overly impressive, and it's a handy (and free) tool to keep on hand. We recommend it for any user who is comfortable working with the Registry.

    "Major screws your Win7 system"

    October 4, 2009  |   By Cygnus_Omega

    Version: Your Cleaner 1.11

    Pros

    -umm...it's a small program
    -it's pretty quick at "fixing" your system

    Cons

    -Disabled my wireless card
    -Disabled the Windows Recovery Wizard
    -Disables the screen saver (no idea how it managed this)
    -Generally screws you over

    Summary

    This program really did a number on my system. I am running Win7 Pro 64 and it had a field day with disabling services and functionality. DO NOT USE THIS, WAIT FOR REAL OPTIMIZATION SOFTWARE TO COME OUT. Horrible.

    "Easy to install - limited utility"

    July 4, 2009  |   By FDClark

    Version: Your Cleaner 1.11

    Pros

    Easy to install. Simple user interface for simple tasks.

    Cons

    I had a conflict between Windows XP & an uninstalled version of Windows 2000. Wanted Cleaner to get rid of Windows 2000 and let XP run unimpared. Didn't happen and computer crashed. Still trying to get it up and running.

    Summary

    Problem is the complexity of the task not the product. For simple cleanup tasks, the product may be fine.

    "DO NOT USE THIS if you have Office 2003"

    June 24, 2009  |   By debbieengleson

    Version: Your Cleaner 1.11

    Pros

    nothing at all

    Cons

    After downloading and installing the program, I ran the cleanups with no problem. I wanted to work on an EXCEL project but was told I was unauthorized - run install. Can't run install - it doesn't work either. Tried to use restore (XP)-it failed.

    Summary

    I emailed the program writer who in a most cavalier fashion told me to download and run a .BAK file after I reinstalled Office. He said that the BAK file will automatically be included in the next version. Too bad it isn't now. I have no installs left on Office 2003 and will have to call Microsoft and beg for a new code. I fear that restore is never going to work again and hope that I never need to try. THIS DOWNLOAD SHOULD COME WITH A WARNING IF YOU HAVE OFFICE 2003 (and any other Office if it does this with all versions). I used to have implicit trust in the CNET reviews. No more.

    Updated on Jun 24, 2009

    I meant to say that NONE of my Office 2003 programs run.

    "eTrust AntiVirus says this is Win32/Multidropper.DP"

    June 24, 2009  |   By perry_mason

    Version: Your Cleaner 1.11

    Pros

    Description sounds good. Impressed by high CNET editors' rating.

    Cons

    As soon as I unzipped the YourCleaner.rar file, my eTrust AntiVirus deleted it with the message "The Win32/Multidropper.DP" Virus.

    Summary

    Install this at your own risk.
    I'm rather surprised at the high rating given by CNET editors.
