"Scrubbing brush for for your Windows-System"

Overview

Every user needs a program to keep his computer in a good condition and clean it from junk files that appear during computer usage. WashAndGo will efficiently clean up your system from useless files and data such as temporary files, browser cache, cookies and it will also fix system errors in order to make your computer faster and more stable. Its Automatic Cleanup feature will make sure your computer is kept clean even if you forget or don’t have the time to run a scan manually.

Installation

The installation will not trouble you at all unless you don’t have the required components installed (Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Package), in which case you will be prompted to download and install them. In any other case installation will finish smoothly and without problems (you will be asked to make some basic settings during the procedure though). Apart from the main application, no other software is installed. Our virus scans report that the program is clean.

Supported operating systems are Windows XP, Vista, 7 and (32 or 64-bit).

Interface

Before you can start using the program you must first register it. Don’t worry, it’s free and the whole procedure won’t take more than a couple of minutes. After unlocking it, a new window will open that will ask you to define the program’s cleaning range; basically it has 3 options that represent a different area of your computer and you can choose which ones you want to include when cleaning. When you save your settings and close the window you can finally see the main interface, which looks nothing less than a modern program’s interface. It has 5 categories in the pane located on the left side of the window (Overview, Cleaning, Automation, Backup Center, Tools & Helpers and Settings) and the contents of the main screen change depending on the currently selected category.

Pros

As any other junk-file cleaning software, WashAndGo has its own tool for cleaning garbage stuck in your computer like leftovers from software removals, temporary files, log files, prefetch files and of course, repairs registry errors. The results in our tests were exceptional, since it found more items than other cleaners.

The program features various automation tools for scheduling cleaning tasks on set time periods. For instance you can schedule a cleaning process each time your computer starts, or when the computer is not used. Moreover, the “Trash Guard” runs in the background and maintains your computer by deleting unwanted data periodically. A cool and unique feature that not many cleaning tools have.

If things don’t go as expected after a cleaning task, like a file you needed or an important registry key has been deleted, you can use the Backup Center to undo the actions performed by WashAnd Go.

Cons

Nothing to say here, as mentioned above it works fine and better than many well-known alternatives.

Alternatives

A great and free substitute is CCleaner (free), almost a must-have application since it offers countless settings for its tools. If you want a more sophisticated tool that does more than cleaning useless files and fixing errors, TuneUp Utilities (paid) is for you.

Conclusion

WashAndGo does a terrific job in eliminating the junk in your system, and its easy to use interface makes it attractive to a lot of begginers.
