Welcome to PC Cleaner Homepage.

This page contains the latest version of PC Cleaner and its documentation.

What is Pc Cleaner?

PC Cleaner is a program that will let you keep your PC clean using three strategies:

1. Cleaning temporary files and folders.

2. Removing those DLLs in Windows System folder that appear to be left by an uninstall program.

3. Finding if there exists more than one copy of a certain DLL in the system and letting you use the newest version of them if this happens.

By performing these cleaning jobs (called finders) it is possible to get a more clean system. PC Cleaner does not delete completely anything; the temporary folders and files are sent to recycle bin and the DLLs that this program removes are backed up first, so that there's allways a way back for all operations. Before deleting these backups or flushing the recycle bin, you should make sure that your system is working smoothly.

WARNING

Some files that seem to be temporary, could be in the system for some other purposes. Remove only the files you are sure that will no longer be necessary, for example, you can tell Pc-Cleaner to include *.log files; some install programs such as Wise Install create a script file called INSTALL.LOG somewhere and it is needed at uninstall time.

Before using this program, close any other programs running. This will ensure that all the files found in temporary folders are not being used and can be deleted without any problem.

The Orphan DLL finder bases its results on the import table of executable files. It means that if an application or library loads a DLL on the fly, the DLL name is not tracked by PC Cleaner. To avoid problems, no DLL is deleted, instead, they are moved to a backup folder. You should not delete the contents of that folder until you are sure that your system is working smoothly. After performing the Orphan DLL cleaning, you should try all your applications in order to make sure that they are still working properly.
