System Ninja 3.1.6 is the latest version of the temporary file cleaning and maintenance tool for Microsoft Windows devices.
The tool flies a bit under the radar thanks to the dominating CCleaner. The author of System Ninja is the creator of CCEnhancer, a tool that adds support for more than 1000 programs to CCleaner and other programs supporting CCleaner's definition syntax.
System Ninja can check various locations on Windows for junk files, and remove those. It is not as sophisticated as CCleaner when it comes to that as it offers less customization options.
The program ships with a collection of tools, again similar to CCleaner, that let you run maintenance related tasks on the PC.
The new version of System Ninja supports a new duplicate file finder tool that you can access with a click on system tools in the program interface.
The tool offers three modes of operation:
The interface is not well suited to browse the results listing for one, and there are not any options to select all duplicates files for processing.
I guess it works okay for a small number of files, but dedicated tools for the job are certainly the better option in most cases.
System Ninja 3.1.6 ships with other new features. The program can clear the logs of Vuze, Steam, and Microsoft's NET Framework now for one, and does a better job at cleaning Internet Explorer on devices running Windows 10.
The author of the program has improved the program's responsiveness during the last 10% of the scan on top of that.
Information and recommendations were added for more startup items which the program's startup manager displays when you use the tool.
System Ninja 3.1.6 improves the junk file cleaner and system maintenance tool in several ways. While I'm not a fan of do-it-all tools that do anything but not as good as dedicated programs, I can see the appeal that this has to some users.
Now You: Which junk file cleaner do you use, if any?
