Because life is all about having options, and Windows ecosystem offers so many freeware options that one has to check them out and see what suits you the best.

Glary Disk Cleaner comes to from the well-known Glarysoft house. It offers a handy way to clean up your hard disk.

Glary Disk Cleaner is a simple tool which takes no time to download and install 0n your PC. The program has a very user-friendly interface and even a novice computer user can use it without any hurdles. You can choose to run the program right after its quick installation. It simply scans the hard disk of your computer, locates the temporary files and removes them.

Glary Disk Cleaner starts scanning your PC immediately after you launch the program and gives you a quick list of files stored on your PC. You can either select the files and remove them manually or choose to delete them all in one go.

The Disk Cleaner checks the Windows, your web browsers as well as the applications installed on your PC and locates all the temporary and unused files including temporary files, cache, system log files, error report files, invalid and broken shortcuts, browsers cache and much more.

The list of files also display the path, size and format of files located giving you and option to check the file before you delete it. You can view the file in its folder, check its Properties and exclude from the removal list if required.

I don’t know if it was the size of my hard drive or the lesser number of temporary files stored on my PC, but the program actually took just a few seconds to scan my PC. Usually when a PC is under scanning, the CPU usage increases which tends to slow down the PC for the time being. But there is nothing to worry about when using this freeware.

The program is very simple and effective and I didn’t find any noteworthy issue in the program. It scanned the PC quickly and also deleted the files in no time. In short, it did is job!

    I’ve never been a big fan of cleaners such as this, I recommend to most people to stay away from them, most software like this do more harm than good.

    I have found the best pc cleaning routine is ……

    1.) CCleaner for basic routine cleaning WITHOUT the use of the registry cleaner followed by …

    2.) TFC (Temp Files Cleaner) By Old Timer

    After the above two are complete I run “cipher /w:C:” in an elevated command prompt to wipe free space on my disk(s). I can wipe a 1TB HDD in 5 hours or less, compared to 14+ hours using CCleaner’s wipe free space function. I do this about once a month and after doing it there is always a noticeable boost in performance.
    LEAVE THE REGISTRY ALONE, there is no performance boost whatsoever by “cleaning” or “compressing” it, besides, one wrong deletion in the registry and you can render your system unbootable
