Editors' Review

+
Despite a few misses, Zappit System Cleaner improves your system performance by eradicating space-hogging obsolete files and files that may endanger your privacy. The Windows XP-inspired interface has a safe deletion mode for less experienced users and an advanced mode with features for customizing cleanups. Like most competing applications in its class, Zappit removes traces from Windows system areas including the Recycle Bin, the Clipboard, temp folders, and the Recent Documents list. We're impressed by how well it eradicates Web-surfing traces from IE, Mozilla, Opera, Netscape, and Firefox. However, cleaning traces from third-party applications is narrowly focused on only a few programs. The cleaning process is fast and accurate, and we like that Zappit automatically creates a restore point before cleaning. You can easily schedule cleaning tasks to operate when you're away. Oddly, it doesn't include a secured file shredder, a common feature in cleaning programs. Novice users will appreciate the few handy wizards for managing start-up programs and Internet favorites. This free program helps keep your computer healthy and is a good addition to your toolset.

    "A Great Addition to My Arsenal"

    March 19, 2011   |   By Smeaga31

    Version: Zappit System Cleaner 1.1

    Pros

    This program is really good as an addition to other disk cleaners. It picks some things up others don't. It Looks good and intuitive. Creates a restore point for safety. You can schedule it to clean when you want. Really a nice program in general.

    Cons

    The advanced mode isn't so safe. I am experienced and still had problems with it removing things it shouldn't. Nothing tragic, just an irritation. I just did a system restore.

    Summary

    Really good as an addition to other cleaners. It is really safe in safe mode. I Use it in my arsenal along with Ccleaner and Wise Disk Cleaner. I suggest everybody try this.

    "It'll never let you go"

    September 06, 2010   |   By oldsalt19

    Version: Zappit System Cleaner 1.1

    Pros

    pretty run of the mill

    Cons

    Absolutely would not allow me to uninstall. Every time I tried to uninstall it it would re-appear on the tak bar and say it couldn't uninstall because it was still open. Finally, I had to uninstall it manually.

    Summary

    Will not let you uninstall

    "Horrible and Dangerous!! It erased almost everything!"

    June 05, 2010   |   By AnthonyStarfield

    Version: Zappit System Cleaner 1.1

    Pros

    There's nothing positive about Zappit.

    Cons

    Avoid Zappit or you'll regret not heeding my words.

    Summary

    Zappit erased almost everything on my hard drive!!

    Any files that were not open when I ran Zappit were erased! It trashed Windows XP!

    I had to install a new hard drive, reload Windows and everything else! Zappit caused me hours and hours of needless work!

    I still have to transfer the stuff from my old hard drive. (ALL of the recover programs I tried will only find a file and transfer it to someplace else. None of them would just undelete everything that Zappit deleted. That would have been much easier and simpler.)

    Alternative:
    There's a program called Wise Disk Cleaner that I tried with my old Compaq Armada. That one worked quite well. It can find a long list of file types.
