SlimCleaner is a system tool for Windows which can delete cluttered files, gives crowd-sourced optimization, chops boot and finds/removes hijacking programs for free. This software provides real-time crowd suggestion to optimize your PC and clean traces. To many Windows users, CCleaner is the most favorable to delete junk files and I am also one of them. But CCleaner cannot be a perfect junk cleaner solution although it’s powerful enough and featured trustworthy, but if you want a complete junk removal solution, you have to go further from CCleaner. SlimCleaner can do it for you. Besides, you can search for hijacking programs and remove them as well as find target program/service to remove from boot (Chop Boot) with timer log. More to read.
