"This is easy-to-use system maintenance tool."

Overview:

Garbage Finder is a top rated disk utility that finds unnecessary and broken files and allows you to delete them. This easy to use program works to find unwanted junk files and keeps your computer clean and tidy. Some people don't know it, but over a period of time, the installation of many programs on your PC leaves behind lots of unwanted junk. With Garbage Finder, you can totally revamp your PC and save tons of hard drive space too. 

If you download lots of files, then you're going to want to get rid of the setup portion after the installation. Also, any fragments of files, such as incomplete downloads, can also be removed with Garbage Finder. Scheduled cleanings, such as on a specific day or time, can be arranged through the in-program options. 

Installation:

Installation of Garbage Finder only takes a few moments. The installation file is very small, so it's a breeze to get up and running with it. This program is compatible with Windows NT, Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows 2000, Windows 2003, Windows Vista, and Windows 7. And, because the program file is so small, there's no special PC speed or RAM requirements to get it to run properly. 

Interface:

The interface of the program is totally streamlined, simple, and easy to navigate. From the main program menu, you can choose to clean the Garbage In The Recycle Bin, clean Temporary Folders Content, clean Temporary Internet Files, clean any specific folders you custom set, clean Windows Internal Junk Files, and do a Full PC Scan to remove any additional garbage like broken shortcuts, log files, and more. Even if you THINK you're doing a good job of keeping your PC neat and tidy, this program will uncover tons of junk files you never knew existed.

Conclusion:

Garbage Finder was able to find over 500 megabytes of unwanted junk files on our test PC. But here's the really interesting part. We took pristine care of our test PC with the standard Windows system tools, and even used another software that was supposed to keep our PC clean. Even so, this program found a ton more junk and deleted it straight away. We're proud to say that Garbage Finder is a really effective program that deserves your respect. The trial period lasts for a full 14 days, so you can decide if it's worth registering for the full version. And don't worry, it's very affordable.
