For users that have noticed a slow down in their PC and want it running like it did when it came out of the box, MyCleanPC is just about the perfect tool.
MyCleanPC is suitable for both power users and those with limited technical know-how.
This utility features deep and quick clean solutions to clamp down on potentially unwanted applications (PUAs), junk, and corrupted registry files all laying under the box. Users are also able to run the scan on a fixed schedule and choose the days of the week when the program executes.
MyCleanPC’s main feature is its scanning tool which comes in 2 variants: quick clean, which is designed to scan the most commonly compromised parts of computers, including registry files, tracking records, and cached records, and deep clean which really gets under the hood of the system identifying corrupted and missing Registry items that could have knock-on effects on other parts of the filesystem.
Within the Registry files, users are able to see a list of keys which could be compromised or causing issues with other programs. The quick scan is also able to flag:
Additionally, MyCleanPC lets users identify tracking records which could be used by those operating spyware to track and log users’ digital activity. Although the software will present the tally of issues found even for those that have not upgraded to a paying account, in order to access the detailed lists and to remove the threats, users need to be subscribed at a premium level.
No matter how badly corrupted a Windows computer becomes, there is always hope that it can be restored to a better operational state. Although the functionality is now included as a native Windows utility, MyCleanPC makes it particularly easy to navigate between various restore points to bring the system back to its condition at a previous point in time.
In order to make the scanning process as streamlined as possible, MyCleanPC allows users to specify “exclusion lists”—parts of the system that the system will not scan for open vulnerabilities and threats. If users are confident that parts of the system are not compromised, then this can be a great way to speed up the scanning process and focus only upon those parts of the system that might contain problematic files or permissions.
The best way to run a cleanup utility is to have the program run at a fixed and regular interval—such as once per day. MyCleanPC allows users to configure the deep cleaning process to run at either a fixed interval or at a pre-defined time. As the scanning process can cause a minor slowdown to the system, this is a great option for users that leave their computers running and want to run the speedup and optimization utility at a certain time when they are not running other tasks.
MyCleanPC is an extremely easy to install utility. After downloading the installer from the website, users simply need to confirm their acceptance to the user agreement and then click the install button to get the program on their machines. The best way to run the quick and deep clean is to set it up on a schedule. Users are also able to configure the program to launch at startup so that they can immediately inspect the output of the scan results.
MyCleanPC has carved out a reputation for itself as one of the best known PC optimization and cleanup tools around. Because it is not a dedicated virus and malware remover, there are no independent testing benchmarks to rely upon. However, when we ran it on our test virtual machine the program quickly identified and then cleaned up more than 80 identified issues.
MyCleanPC is available for free download. However, the free utility only identifies detected issues—but doesn’t remove them. Therefore, in order to gain utility from the program, users need to sign up for the Premium plan. That license costs $19.99 and is not time-limited—so users can take advantage of optimization and removal services indefinitely.
MyCleanPC provides a lot of recurrent functionality for its one time premium payment price. The program has the ability to both prevent the leak of private information and speed up PCs. Users could also find that as a result of the space they save they no longer have to add an additional hard disk. So the small purchase price could end up paying for itself many times over.
