All in One Cleaner

Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

This efficient and simple system cleaning suite suffers from a minor glitch. All in One Cleaner's basic checkbox and button interface doesn't need more explanation than the one line descriptions on each menu item. However, the program's manual will explain the basics for any novice user.

All in One Cleaner doesn't remove every trace of junk and privacy files from your system, but it covers the major players. The main menu leads to the four major cleaners: junk, Registry, history, and startup. Each takes just a click to open. Startup Cleaner opens immediately with every item checked by default. You can easily add, delete, or edit any item in your startup list. The list is helpfully sorted by user and type of service.

The other three cleaners require quick scans before they're ready to operate. The History Cleaner has the fastest scan, and quickly cleans temporary folders, cookies, typed URLs, and select Windows system areas. The others scans aren't as fast, but average for tools in this genre. All scans are easily stopped with a button click, a simple touch that not every program provides. Each scan result list offers pulldown menus to select or deselect all and open Explorer or Registry Editor to investigate a result. A simple click is all it takes to see the properties of any item.

The History Cleaner failed to inform users after cleaning checked items. It neither updated the list, nor presented a completed message. Closing and refreshing the list worked, but that was the only minor glitch in an otherwise novice-friendly, and effective, system cleaner. The short five-day demo is balanced by the absence of limitations. That's a rarity in this genre.
