SlimCleaner 4.0 final released

The Windows maintenance software SlimCleaner has just been updated to version 4.0 by the developing company SlimWare Utilities. The program can best be described as CCleaner on steroids. While it is not as sophisticated when it comes to the cleaning of temporary files on the system, it includes other optimization and maintenance features that set it apart.

Probably the coolest feature from a user perspective is the rating of all installed programs and running processes on the system using a community-based rating system. While that is not a security feature as some may have suspected, it still provides you with information about processes and programs on your system that you can use to make educated decisions about whether these should be on the system or not.

Another feature is the built-in software update checker which you can use to find out if software on your system is out of date and requires updating. It is not as comprehensive as the software updates monitor SUMO in this regard, but still effective enough to be useful.

The interface itself has not changed that much as you can see on the screenshot below.

The developer website has not yet been updated with information regarding the new release. A press email included the following paragraph that highlighted the major changes in SlimCleaner 4.0.

SlimCleaner 4.0 includes several major updates including an Intelligent DeFrag, Automatic Software Updater and improvements on preexisting favorites. These additions make achieving efficient PC performance an easy task for IT professionals, tech savvy consumers and computer novices alike.

Solid State Drives are optimized with the SSD Optimization tool built-into the application. According to SlimCleaner, it logically defragments the drive "so that to Windows, files are stored in logically sequential sectors". I suggest you check out the review of the beta version of the program for in depth information about what is new in the program.



You can download the latest version of SlimCleaner from the developer website. The program is fully compatible with all recent 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the Microsoft Windows operating system.

    Hey,

    Was planning on trying it out,
    Until i noticed it only had a cnet download option.
    That would force me to download a downloader to download the file.

    Something i really dislike doing.
    Hope this changes soon so i can try it out :).

      Rick,
      This is Chris from Slimware. We understand your concerns with download.com, however you should know that our applications are NOT wrapped with Download.com's installer and is 100% safe to download. Other download sites will be picking up the application at about noon EST today and we will also be hosting download links on our own site. Download.com was given an exclusive 24 hour download period that expires at noon today and you can download the application from slimwareutilities.com then if you like.

      Chris

    I still prefer DiskMax from http://www.koshyjohn.com.

    Yeah. Pretty interface. I'll stick with CCleaner I think. I don't need a 'community' predisposing my needs.

    CCleaner's abilities can be greatly enhanced by also installing CCEnhancer, from Singular Labs - http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/System-Miscellaneous/CCEnhancer.shtml . Softpedia also list it - http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/System-Miscellaneous/CCEnhancer.shtml .

    (Note: .NET Framework 3.5 is required.)

    A common misconception is that SlimCleaner only cleans the areas shown in on the cleaner dialog. Let me clarify:

    SlimCleaner only displays and cleans the areas of the computer it is running on. So it only shows the programs, browsers, etc. actually on or previously on that computer. SlimCleaner uses a cloud database to identify the relevant areas on the computer it is currently installed on for 2 reasons:

    1. The scan would take much longer because it would scan for areas that did not exist on your computer
    2. It would be impossible for you to navigate all of the supported area in which we clean (they don't exist on the computer ). - and why would you want to?

    In reality SlimCleaner eclipses the static options available and always will by design. Hopefully this clears that misconception up.

      Fixed the above comment. I could not find edit functionality on this site:

    A malware file removal app trashed parts of SlimCleaner and SlimDrivers so I cannot either uninstall or install or update. The Setup.msi is the issue. Ideas?
