Hey All,

WinCleaner

Has anyone used this product.

 

Thanks

I figured since I have spare Windows 7 computers I would take a gamble and see what it does as nothing to lose.

 

Always been curious what these can do or destroy.

Well I went ahead and ran WinCleaner, activated it, updated it, and started it. It found all sorts of crap and then gave me the option to remove it so I did and all appears to be well.

I would not have paid $19.99 for this nor would I recommend it to anyone.

It does seem to clear out the basic crap that an end-user can do manually if an end-user would.

In my experience most end-users never do any basic maintenance to their computers as most end-users lack the knowledge to do basic maintenance on their computers.

WinCleaner for the $1.00 I paid for it appears to be OK.

This is only my opinion based on my own experience using this device.

No Complaints. :)

But they still made a $1 Dollar from you didnt they...... { And more will follow } 

 

Wouldnt Pay a Dollar for a App from 2009 , reviews point to the same suspect sites that List - www.TopTen.............  etc.

 

There are many free apps that actually work and have Legit Reviews and from known Vendors....eg Piriform.

Yes they did and for the enjoyment of seeing what it does a $1.00 well spent.

 

As for others who purchase WinCleaner it's their option or choice to make that decision.

 

I don't base my decisions on others especially from review rags as mentioned above.

 

Yes there are many free apps available to end-users and some of those many free apps I use every now and then.

 

I bought the WinCleaner because I wanted to see what my experience was by actually testing the product out and not by being an ARM CHAIR USER reading about it in some paid for biased magazine review by some half wit reviewer.
