  • Uninstaller2 and Uninstall Simulator: Identify unnecessary and unwanted software clogging up your Windows PC that you can easily uninstall to enjoy more space for the applications you use. You can use the Uninstall simulator to see what the impact would be on your Windows PC if you uninstall a particular app.

  • Automatic Cleaning: Schedule regular Windows PC cleaning to automatically remove system junk and browser data. Set it up once according to your preferences, then relax knowing that we’ve got you covered, keeping your Windows PC tidy.

  • Browser Data: Your browser keeps records of where you go and what you do online. Sometimes, this can be useful, but it also takes up space on your hard drive and can put your online privacy at risk. By cleaning your browser data, you make it harder for others to track your online activity.
