Perfect program for making people mad. My system was destroyed. Had to use norton backup. Though if your system gets destroyed and you have to start all over you should tryout Windows 7 64 bit. The trial ends next year.

Thank you, Bubby. Magnificently comprehensive. Just finished trying out Advanced Registry Cleaner, which also has a ONE-CLICK button, so you just saved us headaches TIMES our seven computers.

You come across like a genius, and that's coming from someone with double the national IQ. Can't thank you enough for submitting such a comprehensive report.

As always, thanks anyway to GOTD, tomorrow's another day.

Thanks, Bubby. Whew!

Any user with a fair knowledge of Windows knows that you should NEVER use a 'one-click clean/repair' option. After more than a dozen years of tinkering with computers, I have yet to find a program that can be trusted to reliably perform this function. They either zap something you need, change your manual settings back to the defaults or make insignificant changes. It is beyond my comprehension why utility makers persist in including this toxic option in their applications.

@102: Simple. There's a lot of computer illiterate people looking for a "registry cleaner" in addition to an anti-virus scan. As anyone who's used a computer for a while knows, registry cleaners don't work. Period. You just can't trust a program to sort something out that never needs sorting in the first place.

Jeez. If this program comes with a command line interface it could be the most destructive worm in existence.

Honestly, I never even tried this program. As soon as I saw "registry cleaner" I just hit thumbs down. I'm sick of repairing computers that got killed from programs like these. To the people at GAOTD, please never put another "registry cleaner" up again, or any program bundled with one in any way shape or form. They bring nothing but misfortune.

Sure it appears that this could've been tested a lot more thoroughly, which is why I grabbed the software a few hours before hand - to have a closer look and write up my findings. Todays giveaway is exceptionally bad, but it would be a shame to throw out the baby with the bath water. The trick with the giveaways is to identify the gems among the dung.

I'll be coming back this afternoon - because after the penance we have paid with this, the next few giveaways have just GOT to be better. (I shudder to imagine something worse).

A realist will say every day cannot be a hit for everyone. Some days will suck, and there is no getting away from that.

All "cleaners" are dangerous, but this one sounds insane. While I would not expect the GAOTD staff to do extensive testing on each offering, it does seem truly irresponsible to post something like this. I am surprised. In the past, GAOTD has offered some genuinely useful items, and I have checked in with the site for many months now. But I doubt that I will download anything from this site again. Handing out blatantly dangerous software represents crossing a line.

For testing software (like this one and/or others) I use sandboxie to install the app for a test drive. If I like, I install the program outside the sandbox. If the program isn't good or misbehaves, then it gets deleted ASAP via sandbox without repercussions to the real system. Sandboxie is nice way to check out programs before actually letting it makes real system changes.

Another alternative is a Sun xVM VirtualBox install. A bit more complicated for the novice user to setup (requires original OS disc to install and build the VM).

Didn't have much interest in this program given the 80% thumbs down, but after reading Bubby's great review I ended up skimming through all the comments and realized along the way why I'm (almost) addicted to this site. Hey, it’s not for the software. I mean, how many apps can you put on your machine before something breaks … or more likely slows things down to a crawl. I'm at over 300 and about at the limit ... Mainly I come here because I learn a lot - so many interesting and useful comments even if they're off topic (like mine!) - and the suggestions and links for freeware alternatives are often really helpful. For example, I've been running CCleaner for years without a problem, but the link provided by one commenter made me aware that it had some features I didn't know about. So while I wouldn't encourage GAOTD to find apparently not-so-great software to offer us, in this case there was some side benefit. ... Thanks GAOTD. One last thing ... for those who criticize the poor English of some developers, having lived overseas for many years, I don't think it necessarily reflects on the quality of their program(s). Not everyone's good at acquiring foreign languages or able to have the benefit of the best learning opportunities. That doesn't necessarily mean they can't write good code and that their software’s 2nd rate. Still, if developers use GAOTD to test market their products, such comments probably do serve a purpose in making them aware of the importance of first impressions and that maybe they ought to get someone with good language skills to have a look at their copy before it's posted.

#18, you are completely WRONG.

XP & Vista do NOT completely maintain themselves! On some systems you can have hundreds and hundreds of megs of scrap files: log files, cache files, installation odds and ends, temp files, etc, etc.

The accumulation of junk files gets worse, the more you have installed and removed programs.

Using a dependable/reliable cleanup utility is most certainly worthwhile. Note: I said 'reliable'.

People REALLY need to get the facts and not innuendo here.

I usually stay away from any of these "system cleaners" unless I know they are good (such as CCleaner). A bad one (such as the one offered today) can cause damage to your system.
It's really a shame to see such software here as some unsuspecting users may have already damaged their system with this "tool".
The good thing is that there are people who warn others not to download this.
I hope to see a better software offer tomorrow.

Thanks to BuBBy, for your precise warning! Great work - and you're putting the biggest shame on the people behind GOTD.

There seems to be no one, checking out even the simplest functions of such offers. I've always been extremely cautious with FREE offers, but watching this site for the past 12 hours makes me sick. Why? Because no one of GOTD had the guts to remove this trojan horse from their site and apologize to the users!!! If they were caring at all, there probably would have been a statement about BuBBy's comment. But there is nothing - NADA. So I am forced to believe, these people are simply busy counting all the money they're making with this site ...

Perhaps someone can recommend a good lawyer to those of us, who got caught in todays software-trap?

GOTD had some very good offers in the past, but more of todays kind, will kill that project!

Fortunately, #74 (Jason) said there's a way to restore the system to an earlier date without starting windows. I gonna Google that up. Hopefully I can find a way without opening Windows.

The biggest problem with software of this ilk...

Users that are of the 'non-expert' category will invariably screw up their PC.
PC users of the 'expert' category have no need for this type of software...as it is infinitely safer to tweak the system/registry manually.

These 2 facts render these 'Repair' programs completely useless. Skip it...IMO

*Warning - This might offend the more sensitive readers*

I've said it before and I'll say it now: I don't care if it's English, Spanish, or Swahili - if you cannot be bothered to write up a description on your homepage with proper diction and grammar, it's likely you cannot be bothered to write a program worth half a rat turd.

The first page of this company's website reads like a bad Yakov Smirnoff editorial.

And you thought the software would be different? You had it coming.

I’d prefer the page were in another language (English can’t be TSSI’s first language) and I had to translate it myself.

Btw, I know everyone’s in love with ASC from Iobit, but I happen to know that it’ll plant little links to their website all over your computer and though many of these apps will attempt to auto-start, ASC seems particularly obstinate and IMHO does not do nearly as good a job as folks think it does (or as well as CCleaner, Defraggler, and others on FileHippo or Glary Utilities, TuneUp 2008-09)

I am reading a lot of Negatives on Today's Giveaway so I will pass on this one as I am already running Tune Up 2008, CCleaner, East-Tec Eraser 2008 and a host of other Utilities on my main System. In my own Opinion Tune Up 2008 & East-Tec Eraser 2008 do a very good job on my Dell Dimension XPS running Windows XP Service Pack III. Since running these Applications I have had no Reg. Errors for CCleaner to take care of. Full Version of Tune Up 2008 & East-Tec Eraser 2008 can be found at http://www.dottech.org Thanks anyway for Today's offer though it is a skip for me.

#52: "I would recommend that ANYONE ( GAOTD included ) who doesn’t have the luxury of having a “spare” PC – INSTALL AVIRTUAL MACHINE - it’s the same as a spare PC – 2 machines on ONE MACHINE !!!!"

Not disagreeing, but there are pro's & cons...

Pro: for only testing software, the main advantage is that you have a self-contained OS that you can backup & restore copy/pasting a few files.

Con: again for testing software, you have no idea whether the tested software will behave & possibly conflict with anything else you've got installed, or how it'll behave with your hardware & drivers. [I wouldn't expect conflicts to be a huge problem with Win Sys Cleaner]

While older versions of Microsoft's Virtual PC were listed, there's a newer version with more integration in some versions of Windows 7. Also you could argue that VMware is the industry leader, & they offer their server for free. 7's VPC may be the easiest ever to set up -- expect a bit of work & learning with most others.

"U can quite safely FORMAT a SECONDARY Drive or Partiton without any issues to the system what-so-ever – I do this regularly !!! It beats having LOCKED FILES in the way – preventing deletion of their parent folder !!!"

Check out Lockhunter? There are a few other, similar apps, but this comes 32 & 64 bit, & seems to work OK.

Normally I don't read past the first few comments when I see something like 79% thumbs down before I even scroll down the page, but after Bubby's review, I couldn't resist.

I continued reading looking for something unique, and when I saw a comment about it accessing the internet, my radar was triggered. In my opinion, we have a website and software that could be setup to steal debit/credit card or PayPal account numbers or remotely install virues that can turn a pc into a zombie.

Given Bubby's incredibly useful reveiw and Mike's (#52) comments, you have to have this converastion with yourself "Why in the world, with so many excellent and readily available free cleaners, would anyone try to write another one? Surely they must have run the others to find out what's good and what's bad and used those results to create an even better one, right?"

Mike's comment put this whole thing into perspective: most users don't have a clue about virtual machines and as a result, zombie-makers can get their software installed, distributed out the backdoor internet connection, and then trash the host pc before anyone knows what hit them - oh, and the best thing: the zombie-maker gets money for it, over and over and over... When their goals have been achieved, they don't care if the host is killed. This is how parasites survive and propagate: infect, multiply, kill - in that order. A short life span is little enough to pay to get them money from each host before dying. It's ingenious.

Notice, I didn't say this program is one of those, but bad guys are out there.

There are three things that we can do to stop them:

1- GAOTD can do as Mike suggests and install/test giveaways in that virtual environment before offering them (this would simply be the best because then publishers would know that their software will have to pass a minimal QA before being let out ==> that will force publishers to produce better software if they want it to be previewed by us);
2- we can install our own virtual environment;
3- we can wait for others who have more knowledge than us and who can test offerings in their virtual environments for us.

Here's the bad news: even if we did all that, bad-guy websites have a very conspicuous link - TELL YOUR FRIENDS ABOUT US! - and anyone who follows that will be facilitating the bad guys' illegal behavior. Oh well, we can't save everyone.


Consider installing a virtual machine and if that's beyond you, wait until several reviewers have posted. And be sure you're reading posts from reputable, *recognizable* posters. Imposters from bad guy websites can and do post phony reviews all the time.

Surf Safe,

Deb

@34 BuBBy

"WinSystemCleaner – was prepared to wipe 68 separate appliations (or at least their HKCU\Software registry branches)

Shockingly one of those branches WSC considers to be “obsolete software” is

HKCU\Software\Licenses"

I just did an obsolete software scan and found that it flagged and software key without subkeys as an error. Or in other words many valid software keys will be identified as an error.

"Same goes for scanning for type library issues

CCleaner – “No Issues Found”
WSC – 703 Registry Keys deemed worthy of deletion."

This may be due to the fact that CCleaner does not find many registry problems comprared to other registy cleaners. Or there could be many false posatives - so not worth taking the risk of using this to clean the registry!

#2: "you can download the “CCleaner v2.22.968 – Slim” Build which doesn’t come bundled with a toolbar"

There's also a portable version -- same program, but minus the installer & additions to your registry.

* * *

#11: "Everytime I run the program, it wants to connect to the internet. Why is this?"

From the FAQ @ winsystemcleaner.com:
"Q: Does my license expire?
A: Yes, a registration code includes 1-year license for you"

* * *

#68: "It crippled my laptop and now it say, Windows could not start because the following file is missing… In my case it was system32/hal.dll that’s missing."

Ideally restore a backup... maybe if you didn't perform a backup, your laptop did -- many come with automated backup software using a hidden partition on the drive.

Run an un-delete app from a Floppy/CD/USB. Probably the safest route would be also using an external hard drive so you have a place to store the found files -- you don't want to write *Anything* to your laptop's drive until you've found every recoverable file. When you have, copy them to the LT's drive [in the proper folders] & see if it worked. If not, repair/re-install Windows probably.

DO NOT INSTALL THIS PROGRAM, UNLESS YOU FEEL LIKE RE-INSTALLING YOUR ENTIRE SYSTEM!

At 52% to completion, I already had Windows pop-ups asking me to insert the System cd AND the Service Pack 3 cd, as it was busy deleting system files that are necessary TO RUN THE COMPUTER!

AND, THERE IS NO WAY TO STOP IT IN IT'S EVIL WORK ONCE THE WINDOWS POP-UPS START, EXCEPT BY CTRL-ALT-DEL & STOPPING IT IN WINDOWS TASK MANAGER...AND EVEN WORSE, THERE IS NO WAY THAT I CAN SEE TO UNDO THE DAMAGE IT HAS DONE, EXCEPT BY MAYBE ROLLING THE SYSTEM BACK TO A PREVIOUS DATE, which I am about to do, as in the Service Pack 3 re-install, Windows would not allow NTLDR to install from the CD.

IN OTHER WORDS, 10 MINUTES OF RUNNING THIS "NOT READY FOR PRIME TIME" PIECE OF CRAP HAS NOW TAKEN MANY HOURS AWAY FROM ME TO TRY AND FIX WHAT IT HAS DONE.

DO NOT, do NOT install this IRRESPONSIBLE GARBAGE OR YOU WILL SPEND MANY HOURS TRYING TO FIX WHAT THIS PROGRAM HAS REMOVED!

Judging from BuBBy's comments, Win System Cleaner is worse than most.

#3 pointed out: "If you wish to remove all the junk or clutter in windows then just use it’s own system cleaner. %SystemRoot%\system32\cleanmgr.exe"

Much easier = Start Menu -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Disk Cleanup. [http://support.microsoft.com/kb/253597]

#42, Fubar expanded on the CLI & automation options, also talking about the built-in search offered with Vista & 7. One of the more useful reasons for using search is it allows you to right-click the results & run as admin -- not much good with Disk Cleanup but essential if for example you meed the command line [search cmd] with full admin privileges.

Windows Disk Cleanup itself offers 2 advantages -- you can delete old Restore Points [invaluable before a backup], & it errors on the side of caution... Disk Cleanup will miss quite a bit, & doesn't touch the registry, but it's almost impossible to get yourself into trouble -- I don't recommend stronger cleaners unless you know what you're doing or are prepared to learn. Deep cleaning is useless if/when you do more harm than good.

Fact is, getting rid of your browser temp files [cache, cookies, & history] is cool, but your system's not likely to die if you don't. Same with cleaning out Windows' 2 main temp folders. Same with the Registry. Windows is designed with a large amount of fault tolerance, & though it's far from foolproof, millions of users get away without ever cleaning anything -- ever.

I must say, I would rather see a message like "Sorry, we have no free software for today" than seeing GAOTD giving away dangerous/badly-written/privacy-invading software like this.

I did a test scan, and it does in fact try to delete many windows files.

I'll pass, and to be honest, I lost faith in GAOTD for even hosting this program without a warning of the dangers.

I'll pass, and I am growing weary of the recent software quality.

Idea GAOTD, if you have no good software to give away one day, give links to good, undiscovered freeware. It's all free on our end.

First, I have to say that Bubby did a nice job on reviewing this. Of course, I still had to check it out. I had no problems at all with installation or using the Win System Cleaner. If you are the type to install it and hit one click automatically, I would say that it's a bad idea. If you know computers, well, then you may have use for this program. I'm keeping this program on an older laptop of mine that I use for helping friends fix their computers.
It found some problems that I have on my desktop that I know about(Just haven't gotten around to fixing) and CCleaner didn't find.
Bottom Line: This is not for beginners or the average user. I can already see people downloading this without reading any of these comments, running it, and they'll write how po'd they are because they had to reformat.
Oh Well, that's life in the computer world.

I wish I've read Bubby's comments or waited what others has got to say about this app. I blew it. It crippled my laptop and now it say, Windows could not start because the following file is missing... In my case it was system32/hal.dll that's missing. I really don't know what to do. I guess I've to wait until tomorrow morning and sent it to the repair shop.

This should be a BIG lesson for me. Never again I gonna rush and install without reading other comments!

To stress BuBBy’s comment (first post above), Win System Cleaner 2.19 works like hiring a housekeeper who besides cleaning the dirt in your house, will also throw out all your furniture, electronics, etc. found inside your home.

Beware! This cleaner can remove the paths to Tiger Woods downloaded courses if you choose the wrong setting. Warning to all those who have TW2008 installed on their PC.
