Looking for the best PC cleaning tool? Well, this breed of utility tools is designed to supposedly make your computer faster by optimizing some settings. But, of course, no magic is going to happen in any case, and your PC can only get faster up to its designed capacity. Anyway, these PC cleanup tools could be of some help at least.
You might want to know exactly what data of yours is getting destroyed during the process. When we talked about the typical free pc cleanup utilities for Windows 10, they promise to remove various things including junk files, browser history, browser cookies, leftovers by uninstalling apps, etc.
Furthermore, some of these tools also have a paid version, giving you access to more features such as one-click maintenance and so on.
I won’t say you should totally depend on these computer cleaning software to keep your machine optimized as there are some good practices that every user should follow to keep their machine safe and sound. However, they can be helpful in some scenarios if you choose the right tool.
Various Windows cleaner tools are often questioned because there are a lot of bad fishes in the sea. Some cleanup tools only make your computer slower than before. They try to install unwanted software by tricking you, or some of them kill off important system processes. All in the name of making your PC faster.
Some PC optimization tools even try to hype up small even non-existent issues. Their intention is to make the user, who isn’t much tech-savvy, panic and end up paying for the software.
But my personal experience with a couple of free computer clean up tools hasn’t been that bad. I remember getting a significant improvement in my old PC’s boot time after I cleared the junk data using CCleaner.
Still, I won’t recommend using any random cleaning tool to fix your PC. In fact, as it’s said if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
Anyway, here some of the best computer cleaners that you can try if you seriously feel the need to use them on your machine.
If you’re using Windows 10, then I’d ask you not to go any farther than the Settings app on your PC. Windows 10 comes with a built-in PC cleanup tool called Free Up Space which is a part of Storage Sense.
Free Up Space also does most of the job as a regular Windows cleaner would do. It’s just that you don’t need to install any third-party app and it’s completely safe from malware.
On the same page, you can also configure how you want to delete temporary files related to apps or if you want to auto-delete files in your Downloads folder after a specified number of days.
Furthermore, you can enable the Storage Sense tool if you want Windows 10 to manually clean your hard drive from time to time.
For those who are running older versions such as Windows 7, Windows 8.1, the built-in Disk Cleanup is probably the best free computer cleaner that you can get without doing anything.
For some reason, if you don’t like Storage Sense, Disk Cleanup is also available on Windows 10.
Just pull up the start menu and type Disk Cleanup. It’s somewhat slower than the Free Up Space on Windows 10, but you can still get rid of a lot of junk that’s living on your PC.
CCleaner is probably the most famous Windows cleaner tool among all the ones out there. Not just Windows 10 (and older versions), this utility software is also available for macOS as well.
This PC clean up tool comes from the maker of the renowned antivirus-maker Avast Technologies. Avast Cleanup can be a good choice for the users who want a reliable and easy to use PC cleanup software.
However, this tool from Avast comes with a price tag. But you can take a trial run and see if it suits your needs.
Advanced SystemCare is yet another free PC cleaner and PC optimizer you can take advantage of on your Windows machine. It’s developed by IObit which makes other useful Windows utility software including Uninstaller, Start Menu for Windows 8, etc.
So, guys, these are some of the best PC cleaner apps for Windows 10, Windows 7, Windows 8.1, etc. We’ll continue to update this list so don’t forget to check it out in the coming future.
