SparkTrust PC Cleaner Plus deeply scans your PC in search not only of unnecessary junk files but also of malicious software that might compromise your security. Its thorough scan process will detect all system issues, privacy issues, junk files, malware programs, viruses, and software-related issues that may be harming your PC’s performance or taking up valuable space.
The high quality of the results retrieved by the program’s deep scan process is as much as you can evaluate when testing its trial version. Following most of its competitors, SparkTrust PC Cleaner Plus won’t fix any of the issues found unless you register your copy in a leap of faith. I find this policy hard to understand, especially when trying to lure potential users to buy a software program that cannot be described as being “low-cost”. Be it as it may, this clean-up and protection tool promises enough to attract certain users to purchase the corresponding license.
The system scan takes its time to detect the slightest piece of data that may be considered either superfluous or harmful for your computer or your safety. The status report covers all the most sensitive areas of your PC, it is comprehensive and allows you to select which issues you can live with and which you want the program to fix, eventually. Each main category is divided into more specific subcategories, which will surely help you to make the right choices.
The program comes with some extra tools that add value to its main functionality. A restore point manager, a maintenance scheduler, a startup manager, and a Browser Helper Object manager, to be precise. All other tools in the program’s “toolbox”, such as a defragmenter, a process manager, and a file manager require you to register your copy first.
I regret not to have been able to certify its efficiency when it comes to fixing the numerous issues found in my computer. I can assess its thoroughness when scanning it in search of junk files and potential threats, and the ease of use of its interface and some of its working tools. If only the trial version would let potential buyers really try the program’s competence – say, by getting rid of a small percentage of all the issues found – the overall impression would be completely different.
