MacPaw has launched a new cleaning and maintenance utility for windows – CleanMyPC.

CleanMyPC is the long-awaited “brother” of a well-known Mac utility, CleanMyMac, and went live at noon, May 12th, 2011.


  • Scan – CleanMyPC analyzes the hard drive to find files which might be safely removed. They are split into four categories that can be found on the left – “Caches & Logs”, “Help Files”, “Extra Languages” and “Trash & Junk”. Note, after the scan CleanMyPC awaits for the “Clean” button to be pushed so to begin the clean.
  • Secure Erase – when removing files to and from Recycle Bin they can still be brought back by third party data recovery software. Yet sometimes it is needed to remove files for good – and this is where CleanMyPCʼs “Secure Erase” will come to help. Files and folders removed with “Secure Erase” cannot be recovered. This is achieved by rewriting files with zeroes (“zero-out”) multiple times before permanently removing them from the hard drive.
  • Registry Maintenance – windows registry is a database that stores configuration settings and options for the Windows itself and all installed applications. Since registry is read and written by all the installed applications at the same time, as well as malware and spyware programs registry sometimes becomes cluttered or partially corrupted. This cannot be fixed manually (unless you have deep technical knowledge and experience) and we advice to let CleanMyPCʼs registry maintenance utility to take care of your registry.
  • Autorun – while launching applications automatically with Windows is convenient some applications might do that without your knowledge and you might want to prevent them from automatically running. Removing applications from autorun manually is usually not convenient and sometimes beyond your control – Windows stores autorun data in a few places and location specific application might be tricky. CleanMyPC collects all applications which start with Windows into one simple interface – simply hover any application and click “Disable” button to prevent it from starting with Windows. You can reenable it again in the same manner.
  • Gadgets and Extension Manager – Windows (and some applications) install different Gadgets and Extensions into your system. While some applications provide you with the removal options sometimes you donʼt have an option to remove those you donʼt need (which is especially valid for default Windows gadgets and extensions).

CleanMyPC is compatible with Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7 and a good job no matter how old a computer system is and how many applications were previously installed. This cleaning and maintenance utility is designed to ensure sensitive data protection and its proven algorithm is designed to avoid personal or crucial system files removal ensuring documents and settings for the applications at use remain intact.
