Launch UnCleaner and it will automatically analyze your system and uncover "unnecessary files" that do nothing but waste storage space. That’s what the Un in Uncleaner stands for – unnecessary files. Once the analysis is done, you can open a File Report to see all the unnecessary files the scan uncovered. If everything looks okay, hit the Clean button and all the unnecessary files will be removed. Alternatively, you can enable the Auto-clean feature and UnCleaner will clean your system at startup.

UnCleaner is compatible with Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003, 2008, or 2011, according to the developer. To install UnCleaner, you need to run its setup wizard, agree to the terms & conditions, and then hit Install. That’s it!

UnCleaner’s interface is divided into two sections: the one at the top shows how many unnecessary files were uncovered and how much storage space could be reclaimed by removing them; the one at the bottom features buttons to initiate the Clean process, enable the Auto-clean feature, open the File Report to see all the unnecessary files, and check for updates.

Using UnCleaner is so easy that even the greenest of novices could easily handle it. Just launch the application, let it analyze your system and find all the unnecessary files, and then simply click the Clean button. Simple, right?

My favorite cleaning utility is CCleaner and I’m definitely not going to give it up, especially not for something like UnCleaner. CCleaner lets me choose what sort of junk files the scan will uncover, UnCleaner does not. CCleaner very clearly displays all the junk files it found, UnCleaner hides this information in a cluttered File Report. CCleaner can do a few extra things on top of finding and removing junk files, UnCleaner can only find and remove unnecessary files. CCleaner gets regular updates, UnCleaner hasn’t been updated in years. And last but not least, the name CCleaner stands for Crap Cleaner while UnCleaner stands for Unncessary files Cleaner. While it kind of makes sense, that’s a lousy choice – a cleaning tool with "unclean” in its name.

UnCleaner is free, easy to use, and works as advertised: it finds and removes unnecessary files. But I already have CCleaner for that, and I’m going to stick with it. Sorry UnCleaner, but there are too many things that I don’t like about you.


Installing UnCleaner is an effortless task. UnCleaner will automatically analyze your system and uncover unnecessary files; easily remove these files by clicking the Clean button. There’s an Auto-clean option that cleans your system at startup. UnCleaner is free software.


You’ll have to go and visit UnCleaner’s official webpage to see what sort of unnecessary files it finds, because the application doesn’t present this information. You can’t instruct UnCleaner to find certain types of unnecessary files. UnCleaner hasn’t been updated in years. The name UnCleaner is a lousy choice for an application of this type.
