Editors' Review staff

This freeware has all the makings of very good suite of system tools, but it suffers from a beta software feel. ProCleaner's cluttered interface wastes space with buttons for functions that aren't enabled. Columnar data can be sorted, but in one instance it only sorted by month instead of the full date. Some columns aren't wide enough to display the full data and you can't scroll to see all of the information. Help is available only online and there is a complete lack of tooltips or onscreen instruction.

Interface issues aside, this program offers some helpful features. However, again they fall short of fully realized functions. The History Eraser covers 10 prime file types, but you can't choose which items to delete. It's all or nothing. Uninstall Software offers a helpful Delete Uninstall Entry function, but displays no file or folder data for items. The Startup Manager is the most complete function with extensive details on each startup item. It includes easy set options to disable or remove items on the list.

ProCleaner's Dependency Viewer proves helpful for advanced users looking for file dependency, but casual users won't need or use this function. Oddly, the program includes buttons for settings and a Registry Scan that haven't been enabled. With some unfinished functionality and hit and miss with the tools that are enabled, this freeware toolset needs some work before we can recommend it.
