SlimCleaner is a lightweight utility for removing all kinds of junk and broken files from your computer to help improve overall performance. Even inexperienced users will quickly get comfortable with this program's straightforward interface, and the combination of features included means you'll have all tools you want at your disposal at any time.
Lots of options: There are all kinds of tools included in this program. Of course, you can quickly scan and clean out broken files and other issues just like in most similar programs. You can also opt for the Autoclean feature, which combines scanning and cleaning, but that doesn't give you the ability to review the scan results before they are deleted. Beyond these functions, though, you'll also find Optimization tools, Disk tools, Windows tools, and features aimed at optimizing your system and browsing performance.
Startup Manager: One of the nicest features is the Startup Manager, which lets you see which programs on your computer are set to run on startup. From here, you can remove items you don't want to open automatically, and you can restore them as well at any time by referring to the Restore list located in the same tab.
Defragmenting shortfalls: The defragmenting feature included in this program is a nice idea, but it doesn't seem to do too much. It also takes quite a long time to complete even a relatively small amount of work; and while there is a Progress Bar to let you see how the work is going, there's no time associated with it, so it really doesn't mean too much.
SlimCleaner is a good, free catchall utility for keeping your computer optimized and running smoothly. It offers a nice set of features. Not all of them are as effective as they could be, but as a package it gets the job done.
SlimCleaner 4.0 is SlimWare Utilities' most ambitious update ever released for keeping PCs clean and running at peak performance. This new version combines solutions to the most common PC problems and puts them in a single, easy-to-use, automated software product. New features include Intelligent Defrag, a Duplicate File Finder (featuring IntelliMatch Scan), a Solid-State Drive Optimization Tool and a Software Updater to keep all the software on a PC current. Crowd-sourced and cloud-based, SlimCleaner 4.0 combines a powerful PC cleaning engine with a community of users who provide real-time feedback about the apps and items on a PC, to help others improve their own computer's performance.
This app is deceptive, and will not uninstall. It keeps popping up and demanding you upgrade, and it can't be shut off. It installs other companion apps you don't want, and if you DO try to uninstall, it demands you login to their site to do it, where I assume they harrass you to buy something else. Support ignores inquiries.

Version: SlimCleaner Free 4.0.30878
lite footprint, solid defragging
I'd like an automatic function that looked for duplicates of (A) .exe files with different version numbers, and (B) files of the same size when that size is >50MB. Nobody's going to die without these, but they'd work wonders on saving space without work.
This is a small-footprint, very capable program for routine maintenance and to tune things up. Best of breed ;-)
