KC Softwares KCleaner can protect your privacy, recover precious disk space and optimize your system by removing various types of residual and redundant files. The program has an easy-to-use interface and there are even two modes, one for beginners and the other for experts.

The tool can detect multiple types of leftovers. In this respect, it can find and erase the litter left behind by the operating system itself, such as temporary files and thumbs. Moreover, it can clean the caches of various popular programs, like Skype, Google Earth, and Adobe Reader. Compared with other similar programs, KC Softwares KCleaner has been found to detect a comparable amount of disposable data.

In Expert mode, the cleaner lets you define what areas to scan and which data to delete. There is also an option that allows simulating the cleaning operation. It does not actually erase the data but serves to anticipate possible problems. Fortunately, the program also uses strong wiping algorithms to delete any data beyond recovery. Moreover, the cleaning process can be completely automated by scheduling regular scans.

All in all, KC Softwares KCleaner is effective in finding and deleting traces of various types of computer activities. The product is available in two versions, one is completely free and the other (Pro) gives you the benefit of automatic updates. Unfortunately, the program may come bundled with other software. Likewise, it contains various buttons that will not work unless you download and install other tools by the same developer.
