System Cleaner can optimize your system by scanning and eliminating problems that are slowing it down, occupying disk space and compromising your security. The program has a nice interface in which various tabs compartmentalize information and let you go straight to the desired feature. In many respects, the application doesn’t look very different from other similar tools, which makes it fortunately easier to use if you have previous experience.

From the Scan and Repair tab, you can choose which categories to scan, including system registry issues, junk files, security issues, fragmented disks, registry fragmentation, Internet speed issues and broken shortcuts. Then, after examining your system, the tool shows a list of problems using a color scale that indicates the condition of each of the categories. Moreover, it’s possible to explore the issues in detail and even unselect those you don’t want to be fixed.

In turn, the Recommendation tab provides a list of suggestions on how to make your PC work more efficiently and to get the most of your Internet connection. In addition, you can open the Automatic Maintenance tab to schedule regular execution of the selected tasks. Finally, there’s the Utilities tab, where you can find an impressive number of features, classified into such categories as Disk Maintenance, System Optimization, System Tools, Registry Maintenance, Privacy, Protect, General and Free up Space. There isn´t much to say about them as there’s nothing here you can´t find in other similar software.

It’s too bad the unpaid version of System Cleaner lets you fix only a limited number of problems in each scan, which makes it difficult to measure its real efficacy. However, some benchmarking tests accessible online place it among the top of its kind. Still, these same lists show that there are more effective similar tools available at a lower price.
