The Cleaner v9.0.0.1107

The Cleaner is an antivirus tool that will detect and remove all kinds of malware: rootkits, trojans, keyloggers, spyware, adware and more.

The program is easy to use. Install, launch, click the Scan button and it'll go to work, crawling all over your PC as it looks for threats. Anything it discovers is highlighted clearly in a report, and The Cleaner can then remove and repair the malware in a click.

Scanning speed isn't quite so impressive, though. The MooSoft site says The Cleaner can scan your computer in "as little as 2 minutes", but if you've installed more than one or two applications then we think that's most unlikely. 13 minutes passed by on our test PC and The Cleaner was still saying the scan was only 50% complete.

Still, if you think your PC might be infected by something and your regular antivirus tool hasn't raised an alert, then The Cleaner is a straightforward way to get a second opinion.

Please note, this trial version doesn't include real-time malware protection or the ability to set scheduled scans. Purchasing and entering your licence details will unlock both options.
