Editors' Review

+

This freeware system optimizer is fast, fairly flexible, a bit gaudy, and most importantly, inaccurate.

NCleaner's interface sports a crowded layout and clunky icons. You'll find the standard functions in this utility. The Clean System function removes invalid registry entries and deletes select types of temporary and log files from certain software titles. The program makes it easy to select what types of files to clean. nCleaner found the majority of correct files in this function, but wasn't as flexible as we hoped. Scanning without automatically cleaning is available, but the function is buried in description text.

We were disappointed with the Find Junk function as it often incorrectly reported files that didn't fit the chosen criteria. However, the Tweak function was very useful. nCleaner offers 49 tweaks to improve system performance or help with privacy. Each tweak rates a quick explanation and can be easily toggled to set or not set. However, some tweaks can't be undone. The Startup Manager function lists programs set to start with your OS, but the list isn't easy to sort.

nCleaner is too complex for novice users and too inflexible for advanced users, and its results aren't unique or accurate enough for us to recommend this title.

"GREAT PROGRAM !!"

December 26, 2012  |  By samantha_2948

 |  Version: nCleaner 2.3.4

Pros

I had to end up deleting it because of some Microsoft error.

Cons

I am going to try one more time to use this, I hope it works better this time around. I don't see where it is difficult to use, in fact I think it is pretty simple to use..

Summary

If you don't use a backup system you will have some problems, but I still believe the software is worth using.

"Pretty decent but you need to know what you are doing"

December 24, 2010  |  By GoodTimeCharlie

 |  Version: nCleaner 2.3.4

Pros

Quite through and complete toolset. Works quite well, but you had better know what you are asking it to do as it can be dangerious (like all 'clean-up' toolsets).

Cons

Expects you to know what you are doing (which I like). "Newbees" need to be careful as it can suggest deletions, etc., that you may need for your systems hardware/software configuration.

Summary

I like it and use it regularly.

"Its reach exceeds its grasp - use at your own risk"

April 01, 2009  |  By levydav

 |  Version: nCleaner 2.3.4

Pros

Lots of potential

Cons

1) Wouldn't let me reactivate disabled startups! 2) Who know's if its advice to delete all these things in your system is safe 3) Odd user interface, doesn't work with Windows large fonts 4) Confusing what all the options do. 5) Must confirm quit?!!

Summary

Not ready for prime time. Try a more mature program like Ashampoos' Startup Tuner
