Editors' Review

Temp File Cleaner 4.4 promises to rid your PC of the temporary files and other "junk" that can and should be thrown out regularly. It cleans Windows, your browsers, and apps like Java and Flash Player. Unfortunately, neither its user interface nor its licensing is particularly clear.

Pros

Cleans your PC: Temp File Cleaner can safely clean temporary files from all or some of your hard drives, caches, temporary file folders, and other locations.

Color schemes: You can toggle between many different layout themes, with names like Pectoral fin Peach, Gangrene Green, and Clockwork Orange. The schemes aren't as garish as the names suggest.

Cons

Confusing layout: Temp File Cleaner's user layout is overly designed and more than a little confusing. For example, the tab for cleaners to be executed is marked by a bomb icon, and separate buttons for selectable entries and auto-hiding controls don't help the experience.

Free or not: Our biggest issue with Temp File Cleaner is this: Is this software free or not? The developer claims all of its products are completely free for personal use (with donations suggested), yet you're required to buy a license to unlock limited features, such as the option to display all drives.

Bottom Line

Temp File Cleaner is no more effective than truly free Windows cleaners. We're not saying you shouldn't try Temp File Cleaner, but its licensing and layout issues lead us to suggest easier to learn freeware, such as CCleaner.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Temp File Cleaner 4.4.0.
