Some features of the CleanMyPC software by MacPaw include file scanning, secure file removal, complete uninstallation of software, registry cleanup and autorun configuration. CleanMyPC is compatible with Windows 7 and Windows 8.
The Scan feature of CleanMyPC scans and analyzes the hard drive of a computer for files that users may remove safely. This software categorizes these files into four categories – Caches & Logs, Help Files, Extra Languages and Trash & Junk. Its Secure Erase feature allows users to remove files permanently from a computer's hard drive by rewriting the file information with zeros as it removes them from the hard drive. Once it zeroes out the data, no third-party data recovery software can recover the information.
When uninstalling a software from a computer, sometimes files such as preferences and caches remain on the computer. The Complete Uninstall feature of CleanMyPC lets users remove applications without leftover files that may clutter or slow down the computer. In addition, the Registry Cleanup utility of the software scans a computer's registry for any erroneous entries, malware and spyware, and allows users to repair these errors. The Autorun Configuration utility lets users select the programs that they want their computers to launch automatically at startup.
