DCleaner is a utility that will clear as many temporary and redundant files from your computer as possible without (hopefully) removing anything of importance to you or to the functioning of your PC.

The minimal size of this software means that it install and runs efficiently, and although it can play a important role in keeping a hard drive clear of unnecessary files, we can't help but notice that in reality DCleaner is a stripped-down version of CCleaner. While DCleaner was released more recently, it doesn't seem to have learned from the example of the more experienced and comprehensive CCleaner. And if the developer didn't want comparisons of the two to be made, the program should have been given a different name.

Our biggest criticism of DCleaner is the interface design. Put simply, it is ghastly, and this fact alone immediately made us wary of trusting it to delete potentially vital files from our system. It's unforgivable that such a simple program requires slide bars and next buttons for the menu items when the program window itself takes up one quarter of the screen and doesn't allow you to resize. What's more, you would be forgiven for missing the 'Run Cleaner' button altogether because of its drab design and peculiar positioning in the top-left corner of the window.

We were also taken by surprise with the link to the DCleaner website, which comes in the form of the only graphical element on screen, and once clicked, produces an error message and closes the program. That's one feature that will have a lot of people scratching their heads!

All in all, DCleaner does perform an important role in any computer user's routine, and will help most make the best possible use out of their hard disk space. Nevertheless, there is a program that does the same thing, and more, with the added bonus of better packaging- and it starts with 'C'.

  • Updated Explorer MRU Cleaning

DCleaner combines Windows System tools and its own built-in system cleaner to improve computer performance. DCleaner is great for privacy purposes as it cleans all your most recently used programs, documents, etc. DCleaner is built for safety of use as it will not delete any thing of importance. Respects your personal information as it will not delete any important information or files.

DCleaner is a freeware system cleaner that cleans up unused temporary files and recent file lists from your computer. While doing this it improves overall performance and reliability for your PC, gaining you precious hard disk space. While DCleaner does one thing, you gain two.
