Yasu 4.0.1 Build 601 Free

Using a simple toggling technique, it can be setup to quickly clean your system, local, and user caches, as well as reset all launch services and clear the swap files

Considering the fact that today’s software market is being flooded with applications designed to make it as easy as possible to clean your Mac of all sorts of useless files or to run various maintenance tasks in order to keep your system in perfect shape, another such app isn’t probably that special.

Provides you with a comprehensive toolkit of system maintenance tools and features, easily accessible via a user-friendly interface

This would be the case for Yasu too, if it wasn’t under development for an entire decade and it didn’t bundle all of the tools mentioned above, all tightly packed up within a simple and intuitive interface.

Being designed as a “swiss knife” of maintenance apps on the OS X platform (and as a replacement for Cocktail), Yasu is now a 100% free application which lives up to its users expectations by packing all the tools that you will ever need and more.

Cleans your Mac’s hard drive of huge amounts of cache and swap files, and resets the OS X launch services for better responsiveness

Yasu allows you to clean your Mac’s hard drive of all those pesky cache files that take up a lot of space and, most of the times, when growing out of proportions, only make your apps start slower and your system feel sluggish and unresponsive.

Thus, using a simple toggling system, you can setup Yasu to clear the system, local, and user caches, as well as reset all launch services and clear the swap files.

Furthermore, beside clearing all the system related cache files, Yasu can also take care of all Internet related cached data. Hence, you can effortlessly configure it to completely erase all browsers’ cache and cookies, together with any bookmark icons that you no longer need.

Also designed to make it as simple and as effortless as possible to run all Apple system maintenance scripts with a simple click of button

Additionally, if you want to make sure that all built-in OS X maintenance scripts have been run, you can run the daily, weekly and monthly repair scripts at once, one after the other. This section also allows you to reset the system and home permission, and to toggle on and off the “Update prebinding” option.

The last configuration section makes it easy to delete all the logs saved by system or user applications, and to remove crash, error and archived logs, all with a couple of mouse clicks.

Full-featured and intuitive system maintenance tool for both beginner and advanced Mac users

To sum it all up, using Yasu is not only advisable if you want to have a Mac in flawless shape, but also imperative if you need as much free space as possible on your hard drive.

SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

    • Administrator account for accessing all maintenance options
    • 64-bit processor

Portable RogueKiller 12.8.1.0 Demo

A portable malware scanner that targets rootkits, worms and other threats, relying on a powerful analysis engine to help you clean your computer

Data protection is one of the main concerns of most computer users. With threats increasing in variety and complexity more and more, it’s no wonder that many want to use additional security-related applications alongside their permanent antivirus solution to help keep their PCs free of malicious content. Portable RogueKiller is one example.

The benefits of a portable app

As the portable counterpart of RogueKiller, this application requires no installation and will not affect the system’s registry during usage. You simply have to launch it, go through the license agreement, and you’re good to go.

Scans key areas to find malware, PUPs and system modifications

Portable RogueKiller can start scanning your computer for malware, mainly targeting rootkits, worms, and rogues. Additionally, it can identify potentially dangerous or suspicious files (PUPs), along with unwanted modifications of the system’s settings, which are mostly carried out without the user’s consent (one example is the change of the default browser’s homepage).

Based on two powerful scanning engines (a heuristics one and a signature-based one), this application thoroughly analyzes key areas of the system, starting with the system memory (running processes and services) and continuing with the scheduled tasks, the registry, the hosts file, the MBR section, and the configuration settings of installed web browsers.

Quarantines malicious content and generates reports

Files that are detected as malware are removed and sent to quarantine, and a scan report is automatically generated by Portable RogueKiller. An external scanner can also be used by the application if you want to enhance its accuracy. Nevertheless, note that Portable RogueKiller is already equipped with a good anti-rootkit module to improve detection rates.

A practical anti-rootkit tool

Portable RogueKiller is worth a try if you suspect your computer might be infected. It’s easy to use and, alongside rootkits and worms, it can also identify PUPs or unauthorized system changes, which makes it a valuable asset for any computer user.

LIMITATIONS IN THE UNREGISTERED VERSION

  • No command line parameters.
  • No Settings and Scan Customization

FEATURES

  • Scan
  • Removal
  • Anti-Rootkit
  • Logs Manager
  • Quarantine Manager

Idem Files Finder 3.2 Free

A fast duplicate searching application that you can use to compare files on your computer and find copies, then delete them to free up storage space

Duplicate files occupy storage space that could otherwise be used to store new content, so getting rid of copies is important. Simple-to-use above anything else, Idem Files Finder makes it easy for you to identify duplicate files and get rid of them without too much effort.

Filter the search by file type

No installation is required, and the application is up and running in no time. To start looking for dupes, you must specify the target location first. Unfortunately, only a single folder can be selected, so in case you want to compare the contents of two directories, you will have to turn one into the other’s subfolder.

File filtering is possible, as Idem Files Finder enables you to enter the file extensions you want it to look for before starting the search, one by one, in a comma delimited list. No ticking boxes or drop-down lists are available, which would be more convenient for the user. To extend the list of drawbacks, the file type is the only filtering criteria (for instance, the file size would be a good option).

Compares MD5 hash of all files to find dupes

One of the strong points of Idem Files Finder is its search speed. The results are displayed rather quickly, in tree-view or in list view. In the first case, Idem Files Finder reveals the MD5 hash codes that are identical and allows you to see the location of the dupe files. The second mode is much more convenient, as you can see the file size and select the files you want to delete.

The list of duplicate files can be easily exported to CSV or XML format and saved to your computer.

Byte-to-byte comparison to find duplicates

Idem Files Finder uses byte-to-byte comparison to detect duplicate content, ignoring the file name. This type of search increases its accuracy, but the lack of filtering and file management options are disadvantages that need to be considered before choosing it.

PC Win Booster 9.5.5.653 Demo

A simple to use application that helps you maintain system stability by performing rigorous registry and system scans while also resolving any found issues

If you are a power user and you want to get the best performance out of your computer, you can start tweaking and adjusting various Windows functions. Alternatively, you can rely on dedicated third-party software solutions, such as PC Win Booster.

After installing the application, it is recommended to create a restore point as it can help you restore your PC to a working state if you break it down by experimenting with the functions of PC Win Booster.

You can start by scanning your computer and detect all the broken shortcuts, unused empty folders, invalid registry entries, programs with faulty integrity or temp files created by browsers, but also infected or suspicious data.

Since this process might take a long time, it is best to close down all the other apps and not work on the PC until the scanning is complete. Furthermore, you can select only a few categories of this verification, depending on the issues you want to fix on your computer.

Once the analysis is complete, you can explore each item or save them to the PC and examine them at a later time.

Another function of PC Win Booster is looking for duplicate files within the folders you specify, according to the file types you need (you can analyze solely the images, the videos, the audio tracks, the applications, archives or documents). When the results are displayed, you can choose which ones should be removed and which ones should be preserved.

Moreover, you can uninstall all the programs you no longer require using PC Win Booster, as it does not only remove the actual app, but also the registry entries and files it leaves behind.

All in all, PC Win Booster can come in handy if you want to quickly locate the issues of your PC, but if you want to repair them, you first need to purchase a license.
