Overview

FileCleaner is a very easy to use program that can help Windows users to cleanup their systems from all sorts of junk, increase computer performance, and protect their privacy. Plus it has a dedicated tool to remove browser toolbars and other unneeded browser add-ons in one click.

Features

FileCleaner has quite a lot of useful tools and features for a program of its kind. Let’s have a look at each of them.

Cleaning Tools

As you have probably gathered from the program’s name, FileCleaner is all about computer cleanup. And that’s why it has lots of great cleaning tools. There is a tool that cleans up browser junk, such as temporary Internet files, browser cache, history traces, cookies and other debris. For those of you who are looking for ways to remove annoying browser toolbars, there is a dedicated tool for that (plus a tool to deal with add-ons and plug-ins).

Uninstalling toolbars with FileCleaner is very easy. What you need to do is select Toolbars in the menu and you’ll get a list of the toolbars you have installed. Select the ones you want to remove and then simply click the Remove button. FileCleaner will uninstall selected toolbars.

Remove browser toolbars

Remove browser toolbars

FileCleaner supports all popular browsers, so you won’t have a problem cleaning up your IE, Chrome or FireFox. It even has an option to perform browser cleanup in real time, as soon as you close your browser (I know there is an option to do that in your browser, but FileCleaner is easier to set up and works really quickly in the background).

In addition to browser cleanup tools, FileCleaner can find and remove junk created by Windows and third party software.

Registry Repair

In addition to its cleanup tools, FileCleaner has a registry repair feature that is very handy for those who need to improve computer performance and stability. While many people argue that registry cleanup is not necessary, there is evidence that Windows 8 requires registry cleanup. In any case, it’s good to have the option and FileCleaner’s registry cleaner performed well in our test.

File Shredder

This is a great feature that not all cleanup programs have. File Shredder included in FileCleaner will let you securely delete files that contain confidential information, so that they can’t be recovered. This is a very useful feature for whenever you need to delete private documents or even embarrassing photos.

Scheduler

One of the things I really liked about FileCleaner is that you can configure it to run on a schedule and perform automatic cleanup. This is a great way to keep your computer fast without having to remember to run maintenance tasks. I suggest you to set FileCleaner to run once a week and you’ll be all set.

Ease of Use

All FileCleaner features are very easy to use thanks to the program’s intuitive interface. No matter whether you want to run a quick cleanup or remove browser toolbars, you can do everything in a matter of seconds.

The Verdict: FileCleaner is a great tool to uninstall browser toolbars and give your Windows a complete speedup. The program has a free 30-day trial period, so you can test drive all its features for free.
