CCleaner is good, but garbage finder finds way more files it can safely delete. The version I installed - as a GOTD - also didn't muck around with the registry.

How does this compare to CCleaner with CCEnhancer addon and/or System Ninja... All of these free....

Reply   |   Comment by Alex  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-1)

Alex,
all we know that Kcleaner is not the only program to clean hard disks.
There are a lot of programs that are doing the same job.
Kcleaner is free to use, and it is also possible to buy a license of it.
The same is valid for PiriForm Ccleaner, WiseCare365 (but WiseDiskCleaner is free), SingularLabs System Ninja, GlarySoft Glary Utilities (but GlaryDiskCleaner is free)... And so forth.
Could we go on?

Anonymouse->Alex
GOOD question Alex (why did xilolee get upset by the question?).

Would be useful to know what sets this apart from the other (mostly free) cleaners.

I usually use 3 different (free) cleaners (think they've already been mentioned) and it is surprising to see they all log different "finds" which they clear up. So it would appear most are unique in some way- in terms of the files they look for - whether or not they clean hives in the registry (or destroy them), whether or not they can overwrite free space. Some are over zealous and can leave your system pretty upset.

I don't have time to try this one - would be interested - like Alex - to hear how this compares to Privazer, Ccleaner etc. (which appear reasonable and don't destroy your OS).

Regards to all.
Be happy - (please) stop flaming each other for reasonable questions - or any question!!!

Life's too short
:)

Who needs this when we have the ever-so-reliable CCleaner? Another cleaning program would be PrivaZer. These two have been tried and tested. Personally, I love CCleaner. It has always served me well plus they always release updates to either make the program better or to fix bugs, if they exist.

Bo, Sorry Bo; the comment is not at all relevant or useful. Everyone has their opinion, but I'm not interested in opinion; tell me the facts. Why is it crap; what does KCleaner do to screw up ones PC? I still don't know. It deletes licenses? Why would any software of this type target licenses?

I agree with Ivan's comments below, to a point. Yes, I too have deleted an OS because I didn't know how to use a certain forensic cleaner, but it was not the fault of the software, but my inexperience. I will try KCleaner for myself, but I suspect I will continue to use Pinform's CCleaner, but I will try KCleaner because opinions don't tell me anything relevant or useful.

JonE,

If I find the comment relevant or useful, then someone finds it relevant or useful, and so it is relevant or useful. You saying otherwise does not make it so.

Based on that comment, I decided not to try the software. That makes it relevant. I reached that conclusion by reading, i.e. using, that comment. That makes it useful.

You see, it isn't a matter of gathering enough relevant-or-useful votes vs not-relevant-or-useful votes. If someone found it relevant or useful, then it was relevant or useful. Whether you personally found it relevant or useful is no longer, uh, relevant. You are not the end-all, be-all of relevance and usefulness. It could be a million folk found the comment irrelevant or useless, but as long as one single person found some relevance or got some use from the comment, it has proved its relevance and usefulness. It is more a matter of definition than opinion. And it is certainly not a popularity contest.

Don't be so myopic.

FWIW, if it helps etc...

Think it would be Very useful if KC Softwares provided more info on their site regarding what files it Cleans. And if it is thorough, removing more than the usual junk from the temp folders, it would be a good thing if it provided some means of [perhaps off-disk] storage & backup, so stuff could be put back if necessary.

The problem is that not everything in Windows (2) standard temp folders can be deleted easily, may not be able to be deleted without consequence, and in my experience, usually those 2 folders don't hold the bulk of the space wasters on a Windows drive. But they're still the 2 safest folders on that Windows drive to empty. You can *probably* get rid of any files with the .dmp extension in the Windows folder, but I've experienced the occasional problem getting rid of stuff named .tmp or bak, & I think files with those extensions, along with anything in the temp folders make up the prime targets for file cleaning apps. [*Usually* files/folders with tmp or bak don't amount to much space, & when they don't, I tend to leave them alone.]

Say what you will about Microsoft & Windows 10, but the universal apps from their store are supposed to behave a bit like Android apps when it comes to install & uninstall -- remove an app & it's gone, period. Whether Microsoft gets most developers to adopt that or not is another matter... in the mean time, until something like that is adopted, software installs and updates are free to roam far & wide on your hard drives & in the registry, in what's too often a lose - lose proposition; leave things alone & they can gobble up space, but if you remove what you think is useless junk, uninstall &/or future updates may not work.

Monitoring thousands of installs [I monitor installs in a VM 1st], anything downloaded during an install or update is very often saved, somewhere. Those & various setup files are often stored in the ProgramData folder, but also may wind up in the Windows\ Installer\ folder, in the Program Files &/or Program Files (x86)\ Common Files\ folders, in the Users folders, in the software's program folder(s), &/or in new folders. It's safest to leave that stuff alone, though IMHO, & particularly on a 240GB SSD or smaller, it can get impractical to do so when you're talking accumulations that can too often be over 10GB.

Several of the User folders can be relocated to another drive, & that can help -- right click a folder like My Pictures, select properties, & look for a Location tab. Myself, I'll record what app a huge msi file for example belongs to, & its location, & then I'll move it off the Windows drive -- if later an uninstall won't work I'll look in the folder where I keep those files & put the one I need back. It's a hassle, but not worth the $100 it'd cost me today to buy a 500GB SSD, because I don't uninstall those larger apps very often. And those setup related files are most always the biggest space wasters I come across.

That said, I do empty the temp folders regularly, but I normally do it manually -- files & folders in Windows 2 main temp folders are often protected -- you can't delete them until you give at the least admin permission, but you might have to do stuff like take ownership, add yourself & then give yourself full control. DO be careful though because some apps do store stuff in the temp folders that is not temporary, but relied on for that app to work properly. Some software, e.g. Adobe's CC Cloud app(s) can change the ownership & permissions for the entire user temp folder, & may do so on a regular basis. Alas, I've found that using Windows Disk Cleanup may not remove all temporary files from the temp folders.

I do use Disk Cleanup for 3 things... After upgrading Windows 10 builds, it gets rid of the leftovers & the old version of Windows that's saved. The Windows\ SoftwareDistribution\ folder can accumulate several GB, much of that can be leftovers from Windows Update, & Disk Cleanup can sometimes get rid of a lot of it. Even after deleting the temp files, cache etc. using Internet Explorer's Internet Options, Disk Cleanup can often still find stuff to delete when it clears the browser cache.

Download and installation very quick and easy, but couldn't see anywhere to enter the reg. code given in the read me file. After installing you are met with a very simplistic and uncluttered GUI which personally I think looked a bit outdated. You are presented with a list of files to check, and when done the program does it's stuff very quickly. It actually misses quite a lot of junk files, I scanned my drives with Kerish Doctor 48 junk files) & CCleaner (50 junk files) both of which detected more than KCleaner did and that was in expert mode with three passes ... Why should you have to do more than one pass, one should be enough if the software is doing its job properly. Didn't like the GUI, no information on what has actually been detected/removed so no way of telling if it does a good enough job without doing any sort of comparison with other similar programs first. Uninstalled, I'll stick to what I have and trust. As already stated by some of the others here, you shouldn't mess about with registry files unless you really know what you are doing. Windows does a fairly decent job of cleaning out the clutter as well.

Reply   |   Comment by Lenny  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+5)

Lenny,
The reason the number of passes can be required this because of the way Windows limits the removal under certain circumstances.
The first pass gets rid of the obstacle to the removal of a second item.
The second pass recognises that the obstacle has been removed and the second item can be removed.

Because my install is six years old and therefore very different than most people's today's download found many more items and other cleaners.
As Ivan very sensibly pointed out in a separate comment that because of the nature of Windows the variation between machines can be huge. And so what works well on one machine can be disastrous on another.

Hi Kyle (and all)! :-)

First of all, thanks for your work and the programs you are giving away!

I wrote the same things in the idea.informer, but I'm not sure it works (I can't see the preview, like I can see it here)... Or when a moderator will post the comment there.
Hence I'll re-post them here.

Some suggestions:
0) Write the list of supported OS in your software webpages
1) Options: I don't like the language menu.
I suggest you to use a drop-down menu.
If you still want to show the flags, use a little icon instead of those BIG icons.
2) Options: I'd use the style, you used for the languages, for the file types.
You could add new items in the future, can't you?
3) Give your users the possibility to insert new folders to be deleted completely
4) Give your users the possibility to export the log of found items
5) Give your users the possibility to have a log file created automatically after they used the program (in the log folder of your program), or after the automatic mode did for them
6) Give your users the possibility to first move the files in the recycle bin

"......tracking every useless byte.....", that is what is claimed by this developer, however that is impossible and untrue, win operating systems do not address sectors by single byte, most start at clusters of 512 bytes per sectors and up until 10k clusters. And how do you track sectors when half is full or there is only one byte used out of it, another impossibility.
If you track every byte you will need as much space to write those address bytes and a parallel addressing system that will consume one have of your HD memory.

Downloaded and installed on Windows 10 with no issues. Running the program is simple. However, if you are NOT familiar with the operating systems I would definitely not suggest just downloading and running this program. I took note of many, MANY, system files that would be deleted when they should not be. Essentially crashing your operating system and forcing you to do a complete re-install. This program is not for the casual user.

I use CCleaner on a regular basis.

This program will be removed.
Thanks, but no thanks.

[ Harry ], I'm curious, in v1 and v2 of KCleaner, the software would select the entire drive for deletion ( I accidently said yes the first time, not reading the list ), after the first wipe out ( and reinstall of the Operating System ), I just exited KCleaner and rebooted whenever it goofed and offered to wipe every file on the drive.

NEVER RUN KCLEANER IN AUTO MODE OF ANY KIND!

You can see the list of files to be cleaned under [ Options ] -- did YOUR experience include ONLY files on the list, or did your experience included files NOT on the list?

I've mentioned the problem to Kyle, and it's hard to reproduce ( I have not experienced it in v3 yet ), I suspect another cleaner is wiping KCleaner's brains.

People tend to use a variety of cleaners in succession ( I do ), so the program HAS to learn to REcheck it's integrity before proceeding.

Let us know, [ Harry ] -- thanks.

Well I can see there are many opinions here about this software. And that is just what they are opinions some based in fact, some out of fear.

Being a computer technician, I learned the hard way as we all did no doubt. But I have found, that is your not familiar with any kind of software, especially cleaners and the like and your not absolutely sure what it exactly does or it gives you no warning or offers a backup, then it probably is a good one to stay away from.

All too many times I have used these so called cleaners that insist they are the best and do the most (yes they do the most alright) only to find out I had to reinstall my OS. Is it worth that chance? Sure if you wish to go all through the mess a software has created especially those that delete out of the registry system or the system files and give you no really clear understandable reason why.

I use these three cleaners and have had no problem with them so far that is, CCLeaner, Wise Cleaner and Jet Clean. I have had problems with Glary Utilities, Privazer made a mess of things and this one that deleted things it should not have with no way to undo it, not at that time that is. I certainly will not install this again to find that out either!

A cleaner is one things, a destroyer is another, never mess with the registry and I do not care how great they make it sound, especially if your not sure how it will affect your computer. This has been told a 1000 times already and will no doubt be told another 1000 times and people just do not listen. Not all computers are the same and we never know how any individual computer will react with some softwares, just be careful...

If your not totally sure of what any cleaner is doing, and they do not tell you exactly what they are doing and they do not offer a way to exempt a directory or file from cleaning, that is a good one to stay away from.

This is just my opinion, nothing more, the thing is, use wisdom rather than find out, you have to reinstall your OS again...

You make me decide to uninstall this program again and never ever use it again, thet are not worth to play that game with my computer and I are good at computers too and know how much damege it can do, and I hate that I not can choice what it shall remove or not, before it starts to clean as allmost everyone other program do... But a question can all seems to run propaly, and stop when I reboot coz I have cleaned one time and it seems not did any bad jet?

Ivan, I agree with your comment about Privazer. I've had the same bad experiences with it. The only thing I use it for now is to wipe the traces in the free space.
There is almost a universal agreement that CCleaner is the one that most people feel comfortable with. I also would like to use it, but don't, because it has too many options I know nothing about.
I use "Cleanup!" by Steven Gould (cleanup.stevengould.org) and "Tracks Eraser Pro" by Acesoft (acesoft.net).

I was also in the computer industry. Couldn't agree more. If you're not 100% sure about what you're installing and how it works, don't fool around at the lower levels of the computer operations (registry, cleaners, optimizers, drivers, etc). Thoroughly research it first and get opinions and comments from other users (not company hype).

At the same time i have tried various so called "cleaners". Each one says they do a thorough job. Why should this one be any better? Even after using CCleaner, Glary Utilities finds other remnants Cleaner left behind. False positives or not, its just another cash cow for unsuspecting PC users.

It's the windows cleanmgr, disk clean-up.
If you run that command (from an elevated command prompt), you'll be getting a list cleanmgr can check and delete, you'll choose the settings you prefer, click ok, and cleanmgr will start to check and delete those items.
Next time you'll only type cleanmgr /sagerun:65535 to run cleanmgr with that options.
The number 65535 could be substituted with any number under it, but you should remember that number for the next time you'll use cleanmgr.
Or set up a scheduled task.

The complete command to run from an elevated command prompt, only the first time:
cleanmgr /sageset:1 & cleanmgr /sagerun:1

For the future, you'll need only:
cleanmgr /sagerun:1

Windows 10 not supported it seems :(

Yeremyah, Windows 10 IS supported !

Kyle, where in the System Requirements above does it include Windows 10? When was FULL Windows 10 support added? From here it reads:

"Windows XP/ Vista/ 7/ 8 (x32/x64)"

And there apears to be no mention of Windows 10 support on your KCleaner page!

Do you mean that it provides pre-Windows 10 search algorithms under Windows 10, or you have added Windows 10 specific search algorithms like offering to remove obsoleted old version windows files or the GWX downloaded in-place windows 10 upgrade files etc?

I believe we were offered Kerish Doctor (awhile back) that MANY FOLKS highly recommended that one as "good". And, from my own experience--it's proved worthwhile. Does...cleaning and more nice functions. No problems there: while I haven't forsaken CCleaner, either. God bless!

I have used C-cleaner since '98; Glary Utilities Pro for over 5 years; and Wise Care 365 pro for about two years. The free version of Wise Care 365 does not remove any privacy risks; but if you run C-Cleaner after the check up with Wise Care; c-cleaner removes those risks. Each has its own capabilities and Wise Care removes the Windows installation files that c-cleaner doesn't. Using all 3, I have had no problems with my Win7 pro. Glary Utilities always finds temp. files that c-cleaner doesn't.

In essence, this is software for the more technically minded because of the potential risks of killing your OS.

For everyday/weekly use I would recommend ccleaner, slimcleaner and cleanmgr (albeit with some research into it's use first).

I had to format and re-install Windows after using this program. It will remove system files if your not careful! Ccleaner is much safer program.

Charlie, which version did you test at that time ? which settings ?
We recommend to use the expert mode and simulation first in order to see which files are to be removed

The warning regarding the power of the program is something that should be taken very seriously.
It has two modes, basic and expert and fortunately in expert mode a simulation is offered, this is the one I tried.

In a very short time it was finished its scan and informed me it could remove 1.98 GB (617 files) of junk, it did this very rapidly, too rapidly.

Decided to compare with two programs that I trust Kerish Doctor and BoostSpeed, the former found 42 MB considerably more slowly than today's download, BoostSpeed examined the system very, very slowly taking many minutes and found 40 MB.

It is possible expert mode select which junk will be removed and even though it groups them it is not possible to select a group to delete, for instance cookies or say log files. If it did the selection would be much simpler to sort and select files that are probably safe to remove.

Certainly would not use this program in basic mode without doing a backup of my system partition and to be on the safe side would do the same in expert mode.

Even if this program did not do any harm to your system I wonder if it would lose all your passwords as many programs of this type do.

Programs of this type were in the past more of a hindrance than a help, the two I trust have been much more of a help and never caused the slightest problems.

There is no way I can really test this program as I am unwilling to run it on my system, if you do try backup first.

This means, you trust storing your passwords within your browser(s)?

lidl1,
Some of the cleaners I have tested do lose passwords, but not the two I trust.
Sites that require passwords I protect using Rapport as recommended by banks and as I live alone this is sufficient.

From the days when I was interested in hacking I have been put off using password managers and recently one of the more popular ones was hacked.
And when a password manager is hacked so are all your passwords, so not for me.
So live and let live, but this is hardly the mantra of this site recently is it.

Just a note to remember after installing.
The installation process will put two icons on your desktop, one for DUMo updates and SUMo updates. I have neither one of these programs, so they got deleted, but more importantly, in OPTIONS ---> SETTINGS you must remember to uncheck UPDATE DETECTION and then click SAVE. If you don't click SAVE, then it will automatically default to check for updates each time you start the program.
I am a little nervous about this one, as "bettersafethansorry" has noted below, but will give it a go. Good luck.

Kyle, to give you some feedback, it seems to be a good program, BUT, IMHO I will be staying with CCleaner. Even after a "simulate" with KCleaner and cleaning them, CCleaner picked up a few more files to be cleaned.
Thank you nevertheless, GOTD and KC Softwares.

Ian, KCleaner finds file that CCleaner misses. Saved many Gb on my system

Reply   |   Comment by Kyle  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-8)

Ian, ....and CCleaner Enhancer is just the cherry on top. There's no reason to run both C & KCleaner. The first "duo" will do. For a monthly deeper cleaning, I use and recommend Koshy,John's DiscMax. All freeware solutions, and if a cleaner can't be updated through a whole year, there's no way, it's safe to delete anything. Well, that's just my experience, and it's a joke to give a trial as giveaway. A few month from now, it's just about useless - or worse. There's a very good reason, that the freeware solution CCleaner ? CCleaner Enhancer are updated on a regular basis.

Allan ,
A lot that can be deleted is not time-dependent and hence updates are not important.
Windows is exceptionally good at two functions, fragmenting your disk and leaving garbage behind.
They have never produced any decent tools to clean up their system and third parties have to try to do it.
There are good cleaners, CCleaner being one of them but it isn't my favourite since I found Kerish Doctor and BoostSpeed,
Bad cleaners will not only damage your system they will on occasion to destroy it so stick with tried and tested programs.

I wasn't exactly sure what this was for, the description was really bad.... I mean, does it search the HDD and delete data from deleted files or..... what? CCleaner??? like that? Still not sure, if it is, no then no thanks .... for no other reason that the description leads you to believe its much more useful than it really is.

What is wrong with "Removes all unwanted garbage files from your computer!" easy.

A quotation lifted from the developers own website:

"This powerful file cleaner deletes files and may make these files un-recoverable. Use KCleaner with care, at your own risks !"

You have been warned.

You are right! I read that as well months ago when someone suggested this cleaner to me. I decided not to download it and stick with CCleaner which I have been using for close to two years now. Thanks for quoting that.

Kyle, Perhaps CCleaner misses them because they may be important to another program. I don't know how many other cleaners I would use and go to open a program several weeks later to find that a file was deleted that the program needed. I would elect to stay on the side of safty when it comes to bulk cleaning of files. I have used CCleaner for well over a decade with no problems what so ever. It is tried, tested and true. You may wish to experiment, but as for me: No Way.
