System Cleaner 7.6.12.570

System Cleaner is the trial version of a PC cleanup, optimisation and maintenance suite.

The program comes with 12 modules, separated into categories like "Clean up & Repair", "Optimise & Improve" and "Privacy & Security" to help you locate the function you need. And these will help you to clean up your hard drive, fix Registry problems, locate duplicate files, shred confidential files so they can't be recovered, and control your Windows startup programs, amongst other things.

This looks much like any other suite of this type, then, and the individual tools don't really stand out, either. So the Disk Cleaner found very few junk files on our test PC, for instance, and the Startup Manager displayed less startup programs than you might find with some free tools.

Still, there are some plus points here.

A System Snapshot tool allows you to record your system state before or after some action, like installing a program, and will then report on any changes.

System Cleaner backs up any settings before it changes them to the "Rescue Manager", making it easy to reverse your last tweaking session, if it should be necessary.

The interface is clear and attractive - it's really very easy to use.

And the suite is amazingly compact, with the entire Program Files\Pointstone folder taking a mere 3.26 MB of hard drive space on our test PC.

Whether that justifies the $34.95 purchase price is another matter - but if you're curious, download the trial and find out for yourself.
