CM DiskCleaner is sort of a misnomer. It should actually be
called something like "CM All Around File & System Wizard". The reason is that
not only CM DiskCleaner not only will clean up your files but it will optimize
your Ram too.
First of all like all it warns you that you should put the files it finds that
are cluttering up your computer in the recycle bin. Good idea.
There are a number of options that really set CM DiskCleaner apart from other
utilities of this type. First of all it has separated the scanning into three
different types. There is Disk Cleaner which does an in-depth scanning of your
drives. Then there is QuickClean which will scan your computer really quickly
and find excess files in internet cache, cookies, history, erase index dat
files, temp, recent directory. Plus there is MRU which scans the Most Recently
Used File List.
Plus CM DiskCleaner has a Application Cleaner that will clean up old application
entries that are not removed by uninstallers when uninstalling an application.
No I'm not done yet. There is also the Ram optimizer that will free physical
Add to all this a lot of ways of doing things and scheduling options and you
have a real winner of a program that only costs $19.95.
