I've tested quite a few system cleaners and, for the most part, they all do the same thing using different means and graphics.
4DiskClean Gold, however, is really impressive. I have an old computer with three small hard drives, so I take special care to keep them as free of "junk" as possible. I run my own system cleaner twice a day.
4DiskClean Gold found about 12 MB of junk files on my master drive that my own system cleaner had missed. Mind you, I'm still gun-shy when it comes to system cleaners, so I have 4DiskClean Gold set to delete the files it finds into my recycle bin (and I'll keep them there until I'm certain nothing I needed has been deleted). That's another aspect of 4DiskClean Gold that makes me breathe easier, the opportunity to make certain these files are really garbage BEFORE they are gone forever.
The shareware version of 4DiskClean Gold is good for 30 uses and is completely functional. When you open the program, it flashes a screen telling you how many times you've used 4DiskClean Gold and how many uses you have left. Upon exiting, it gives you a nag screen about purchasing the program so that you can receive free updates.
4DiskClean Gold is definitely worth a look. As a matter of fact, it's going to become my NEW system cleaner!Download it today!
