With a title like The Cleaner, can you guess what this program
does? Surprisingly, it cleans up unwanted files from you hard drive. These files
include Internet Explorer's cache and cookies, histories (run, search and
documents), temporary files and the recycle bin.
Following an installer which attempted to copy old versions of Windows system
files onto my Windows XP system. Fair enough, the website doesn't list XP as a
compatible system, but ideally installers should check file versions before
trying to overwrite existing files.
The program itself is easy enough to use - simply select what you want to clean,
and click the clean button. From my tests, it does what it says it does.
My only gripe with the program is its limited options. For example, you can
delete temporary files, but you can't specify what temporary files are. For a
computing novice, this is a good thing. But anyone who wants a bit of control
will need to look somewhere else.
