program is fantastic for those of us who are not savvy enough to clean
the hard disk using regedit, which I certainly do not recommend unless
you are really confident. What the software does, extremely effectively,
is clean up your pc of all the junk that you accumulate through simply
using your pc and getting onto the internet. What happens when you
install and uninstall programs is leave all sorts of remnants of files
in your registry and various other places in the computer that you
forget about, but that takes up massive amounts of room on the hard disk
that you will not get back until you either find them and delete them or
reformat your hard disk getting rid of everything.
QuickClean is simple to install, intuitive and a delight to use. The
program layout is effective and no guesswork is involved. There are a
series of tabs to select involving cleaning up your internet files,
cookies and other identifiers. It's not a well known fact but the more
cookies and passwords you carry, the more trouble you can get into if
someone manages to get into your system. QuickClean also makes sure that
your deleted files stay gone with a digital shredder type process which
makes it a case of once gone, all gone. In the past, ghosts of files
would remain that could be pieced back together if they got into the
wrong hands of if you sold your old PC and someone got hold of the hard
disk. These files will stay there beyond a simple format as well.
QuickClean helps eliminate that problem once and for all.
the Application Remnant Cleaner being so easy to use, you should find
your pc running faster as well without the system scanning stuff in the
registry that simply is no longer there. It looks just like the
Add/Remove Programs panel in Control Panel but makes a great deal more

up and running with QuickClean is a snap as well, with just putting in
the CD and away you go. It's simple and is a great way for novices to
