WashAndGo is an easy-to-use utility for cleaning your Internet cache, recent documents list, temp folder, errant uninstall entries, duplicate files, empty folders, 0-byte files, defective links, and your registry. It's preconfigured to recognize several file types as "garbage", but this list is easily editable. If there are certain files you want to omit from the scans, you can do that, too.

A scan will quickly produce a list of files that you can browse and edit or remove. Or, if you're "chicken", like me, you can have WashAndGo store all marked files in a backup directory, deleting them after 14 days. This gives you an opportunity to verify that these are "garbage" files and that your system functions without them.

I did notice one negative, however: WashAndGo failed to remove my Internet Explorer 5.1 browser cache. I did use the shareware version, however, and not a registered version; whether the registered version would perform differently, I don't know.

For the price, WashAndGo is a good buy. The shareware version is billed as fully functional for 30 days. Give it a try!
