PC Doc Pro

Editors' Review

by   / May 20, 2009

PC Doc Pro promises to keep your system free and clear of junk files and folders. While it quickly scanned and found files to be removed, the program's trial restrictions made it hard to know what happened after that.

The user interface is very straightforward and easy to understand. Commands run along the left side of the window, and you can watch the program do its work on the right. We started by performing a registry scan. In about 10 minutes, the program had pulled a considerable number of files that needed to be removed. But once we clicked the Fix button, we were quickly reminded of the program's 100-file trial limit. The program seemed to fix the problem files, but we had no way of finding out which 100 of the 800 or so files were fixed. And we couldn't tell a difference in our computer's performance. PC Doc Pro includes features for backing up files, managing start-up files, and scheduling scans. Manually removing junk files, on the other hand, was unavailable in the unregistered version.

A built-in Help feature isn't included with the program, but it does provide a link that takes you to a guide on the publisher's Web site. While PC Doc Pro impressed us with its scanning capabilities, we couldn't see the results of the more important function of removing unneeded files. There are numerous such products on the market, and we suggest you try out others before paying for this program.
