Default About 'Jet Cleaner"

If any one here use JetClean (the one similar to Ccleaner), please share your experience with it. I am looking for an alternative to cCleaner.

Thank you

JetClean is good. However, some users might not like that is was last updated in February 2016.

Here are two lists of alternatives to CCleaner.

https://www.techradar.com/news/the-b...es-to-ccleaner

I use CCleaner 5.40.6411 in Windows 7 without issues.

Thank you for the useful links. Like most people, I used Ccleaner for a long time until Avast came in to the scene. From what I have seen here and elsewhere, no-one knows what Avast will pull on you next. Rather than go through life looking over my shoulder all the time, I prefer to use trustworthy software; those I can use without having to worry about "what are they going to do next!" Hence, my question here.

I did a little more work investigating JetClean and found this herdProtect results of the developer BlueSpring. JetClean is about midway down the list.

herdProtect is not exactly a reputable scanner.

Virustotal's results.

In what way does it help to use this older version.

Thank you. I am going to be brave and try out HD Cleaner As for the other alternatives, I'll wait till they are checked. In this link, I see that you are using the slim version of CCleaner. Is it because it takes less disk space?

Thank you. I certainly would like to use it if I can stop Avast meddling with my computer and collecting data.

Slim version is devoid of the bundled adware, shown during installation.

You can get CCleaner 5.40.6411 from here.
https://ccleaner.en.uptodown.com/windows/old

After installation, open CCleaner > Options > Settings and uncheck Inform me of updates to CCleaner.

Open Task Scheduler and disable CCleaner Update.
