Kaspersky Cleaner released, a free CCleaner alternative

Question: Kaspersky Cleaner released, a free CCleaner alternative

Source: Kaspersky Cleaner is a free CCleaner-like program for Windows - gHacks Tech News
Kaspersky Cleaner is a new program by Russian security firm Kaspersky that has been released as a free beta version on the company's website.

The program has been designed to assist users in removing junk files and temporary files from PC systems running the Microsoft Windows operating system, and to improve their privacy on top of that.

You can download a web installer from the Kaspersky website which you need to run on a local device to install Kaspersky Cleaner on the computer.

Kaspersky Cleaner
The interface of the program is bare-bones currently. It displays a "start scan" button in the center of the program window, and four additional icons below it that don't reveal right away what they are used for.

You need to move the mouse cursor over the icons to reveal their function. They do the following from left to right:
System Cleanup - Clear Recycle Bin contents and temporary files.
Restore System Settings - Restore settings that affect operability of your operating system.
Private Browsing - Block collection and use of your personal data.
Remove Activity Traces - Clear cookies, history, logs.
If you hit Start Scan, all of the four tools will be used to scan the system. The software displays the issues it has detected after the short scan, and it is up to you to fix them automatically, or review them first.

You can do that with a click on one of the tools which displays details of that particular scan on the next page that opens.

Issues are divided into important, medium-severe and minor problems, and color-coded on top of that. Red colored items highlight problems found during the scan that need your attention while green colored items indicate that everything's alright.

You need to go through the whole listing as issues are listed under their severity level and not collectively at the top.

You may uncheck any of the issues found during the scan so that it is not addressed when you hit the fix button in the main interface after you went through the list of discovered problems.

The third tool, private browsing, is not appropriately named which you will notice when you open the items that it scans for on the system.

It has nothing to do with private browsing modes that web browsers offer, and will mostly detect Windows logging preferences. It does so like other privacy tools for the operating system by suggesting to turn off "features" such as participation in the Windows Customer Experience Improvement Program or the use of ad IDs by applications.

Restore System Settings is another tool that may require explanation. It checks various system-related settings, autorun, invalid file type associations or whether programs like the Task Manager or Registry Editor are blocked, and proposes to undo any issue found during the scan.

Comparison to CCleaner

Kaspersky Cleaner offers a surprising number of items that it scans or recommends to change, but it does not come close to what everybody's darling CCleaner offers, especially if you consider that you can extend CCleaner's functionality manually or automatically using CCEnhancer.

Another issue with the current version of Kaspersky Cleaner is that you cannot customize the scan before you start it. If you don't want particular items scanned or fixed, you have to have them scanned anyway and uncheck them each time after the scan to make sure of that.

Closing Words

Kaspersky Cleaner is an easy to use program for the most part, and while it may be tempting to hit scan and then fix to be done with it, it is usually better to go through all the issues found by clicking on each of the tools to make sure that you are okay with the proposed operations.

The program would benefit from a streamlined interface that displays all issues on a single page instead of divided into a maximum of four that you all need to click on one after the other.

The application is labeled as beta currently which means that it may see improvements before the first stable version of it gets released by Kaspersky. (via Into Windows)

Preferred Solution: Kaspersky Cleaner released, a free CCleaner alternative

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Saw the news on Malwarebytes Forums (posted by sman), and decided that it was too good to not share.Kaspersky has been toying with a free version of its widely respected antivirus solution for a while now on the company's own Dev Builds server.Recently, the company released Kaspersky Free to the public. While not the first free product that Kaspersky has released, it is the first free full-blown antivirus solution the company has released.The main caveat at this time is that the product has only been released official in Russia and the Ukraine.While that is the case, downloads don't seem to be geo-restricted at this point in time. Please note though that the interface is mostly in Russian which is problematic if you don't speak the language considering that it is usually a good thing to understand what a security message means before reacting to it.Also, you may run into activation issues if you run the program in a region that is not Russia or Ukraine. If that is the case, features are limited until those issues are resolved (for instance by using a VPN).Source: http://www.ghacks.net/2016/01/14/kaspersky-free-antivirus-released/I expect big things from Kaspersky's free Antivirus to be honest. Can't wait for the English release. It's the second company now that releases a free version of their products (Sophos being the first).

Beginner Geek: What Does CCleaner Do and Should You Use It?

4 more replies
Relevance 60.68%

Hi Everyone:

I found the following statement on Kaspersky's official blog:

Another reason why the leftovers remain in the system is the usage of tweakers like CCleaner. Of course, sometimes you can make your system load a couple seconds faster by using them, but it often happens that tweakers delete links between our registry keys, so our removal algorithm cannot use them properly. As a result, application removal completes with errors and a new installation cannot be performed because of it.

No matter how tempting it is to ?optimize? Windows using third-party applications, please be aware you might end up reinstalling the system after a critical failure. This will be a consequence of making unauthorized changes to the system, so whenever you decide to test such a utility, enjoy it responsibly.

In light of this is it a wise decision to use CCleaner?

Hope you all have an amazing Christmas & Happy New Year 2015!

Tony.
 

Answer:CCleaner & Kaspersky?

Well, i tested various cleaners in combination with Kaspersky. Registry cleaners should not be used at all, especially with Kaspersky, as Kaspersky self-protection will defend it's registry keys and some important system registry keys. As for temp files cleaners...some of them are really aggresive, but with CCleaner you will not have any problem (just avoid it's registry cleaner). Of course advanced users can use registry cleaner module...but they really need to know what they are doing. I use it without any problem, but for novice users it's not recommended at all.

Answer:Using registry cleaner on ccleaner

Sadly running uninstall from Control Panel or using the software's own uninstaller does not always remove entries in the registry and these are left behind when the software is removed. CCleaner Registry Cleaner finds these left over entries and removes them, however it has to be said leaving them poses little threat to your PC. A better uninstaller such as Revo will clean up the registry as it goes.

Answer:CCleaner registry cleaner

Hi Tnelson

No as, its not going too deep into the hives as in reality it doesnt need tol, too many registry scanner do go into areas they should not and users end up deleting things they may need by accident, so CCleaner is the safer option, also CCleaners Registry cleaner does also give you the option to backup what registry keys its deleting so you can restore them if needed.

I've used CCleaner for many many years and dont do the backups as I trust the findings it lists for removal and I give them a quick scan to see whats their anyway, but wouldnt suggest others do that, unless you know what keys its deleting and would they be needed. Also registry cleaning is only worth it if you do alot of installing and removal of apps, as any thing cleaned is not significant in speeding up your PC, also helps in troubleshooting apps by removing their old keys etc so would only do it every blue moon on a system which doesnt have many apps added or removed.

C Cleaner 1.0.0.0 - new release

Download page:http://www.softpedia.com/get/Tweak/System-Tweak/C-Cleaner.shtml

About:
"C Cleaner is a small, yet useful application that enables you to permanently delete temporary files from your user account folders. The software can detect recently created temporary files and easily remove them. It can display the files in its interface, as they are deleted, as well as render the total number of erased files.

Simplicity in system cleanup

Accessing applications, installing programs or browsing the Internet can cause several temporary files to be created and stored on your computer. The term ?temporary? does not refer to their limited storage on your system, but rather to their usage and purpose. For instance, a temporary file can be created when transferring an item from one location to another.

While they are not necessary anymore, the temporary, or junk, files remain on your computer, in one or several locations, usually in the AppData directory. C Cleaner is designed to thoroughly scan this folder and identify if unnecessary files can be found in it. The file extensions that it searches for include .TMP, .DAT or .INK.

C Cleaner is a small and lightweight application, with a uncomplicated interface. All you need to do is open it and click the Clean button. The software quickly performs the search and automatically erases the temporary files it identifies. It can display the nam... Read more

I'm alittle hesitant to let it go ahead and clean all this stuff out. Anyone familiar with this part of ccleaner and is it safe to use??
 

Answer:Is the CCleaner registry cleaner safe to use?

Yes, it is pretty safe. Nearly all the regulars here use it. There have been a couple of complaints from folks but it probably wasn't CCleaner that caused their issues.
When using a reg cleaner, it is always best to make a backup of your registry first. And CCleaner's default settings do ask if you want to back up.
If this is your first time cleaning your reg or it has been awhile, there will be quite a bit there. Sometimes it will take 2-3 times of running CCleaner's reg tool to get them all.

Answer:Is it safe to use CCleaner as a registry cleaner?

That is the biggest load of :crap I have seen in a long while. CCleaner's registry cleaner is the safest of all registry cleaners. Simply because it's realy worthless. It will clean, maybe 10 - 20 % of the obsolete registry entries. I recently uninstalled Nero using Revo Uninstaller Pro. And then I used CCleaner which found nothing. I then manually searched the registry and found 20+ registry keys/values relating to Nero ShowTime. I deleted them.

Answer:Question about CCleaner Registry Cleaner.

Using any registry cleaner carries risks, if you don`t know what it is you`re fixing. Make sure you make a backup of your registy, before running the reg cleaner.

Click start/run and type regedit into the run box and press the enter key. When the window appears maximise it. Click file/export and save a copy of your registry to wherever you want.

In the event of problems, you can restore the saved registy by importing the saved file.

they both have phishing protection

your combo looks OK to me. I can recommend that
but I don't agree with Malwarebytes because it seems redundant to me. zemana as the second opinion scanner is sufficient enough. It's realtime protection is different from its on-demand scanner. You will get better result with on-demand scanning than the realtime protection

Hi,
I have been using Ccleaner for about a year now with no problems.
I have never checked any of the boxes down at the bottom of the page. Subjects like "Old Prefetch Data" "Menu Order Cache" "Tray Notifications Cache" "Window Size/Location Cache" "User Assist History" "IIS Log Files" "Hotfix Uninstallers" "Custom Files & Folders".
Would I be wise to include checking these as well. I have left them so far because I don't know what they are?
Also in the newer versions, it searches for registry issues. Is this safe to use. I am aware about the dangers of changing stuff in the registry.
Any advise would be welcome?
Many thanks.

Answer:reguarding the programme CCleaner (formerly known as crap cleaner)

Hello Biertonco,

The registry cleaner in CCleaner is usually pretty safe to use. Registry cleaners are designed to remove fragments, invalid entries, blank spaces or gaps, etc... from the registry to help keep it nice and orderly to improve it's read speed at startup.

However, some registry cleaning programs (not CCleaner) are a little to aggressive in what they find and can cause problems in Vista if the wrong item is allowed to be deleted from the registry.

It is best to always have the program create a backup of what it is removing from the registry to restore later if needed.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

I already know how to schedule CCleaner application cleaner to run automatically and have done so in my system. But can anybody really help with a way to schedule CCleaner's registry cleaner to run automatically? Any help would be thanked a lot.

Answer:Schedule CCleaner's registry cleaner to run automatically?

I wouldn't bother if I was you.Bleeping Computer DOES NOT recommend the use of registry cleaners/optimizers for several reasons: Registry cleaners are extremely powerful applications that can damage the registry by using aggressive cleaning routines and cause your computer to become unbootable.

The Windows registry is a central repository (database) for storing configuration data, user settings and machine-dependent settings, and options for the operating system. It contains information and settings for all hardware, software, users, and preferences. Whenever a user makes changes to settings, file associations, system policies, or installed software, the changes are reflected and stored in this repository. The registry is a crucial component because it is where Windows "remembers" all this information, how it works together, how Windows boots the system and what files it uses when it does. The registry is also a vulnerable subsystem, in that relatively small changes done incorrectly can render the system inoperable. For a more detailed explanation, read Understanding The Registry.
Not all registry cleaners are created equal. There are a number of them available but they do not all work entirely the same way. Each vendor uses different criteria as to what constitutes a "bad entry". One cleaner may find entries on your system that will not cause problems when removed, another may not find the same entries, and still another may want to remove entries r... Read more

You may, or may not, agree with the article's findings, but it makes good reading.

Do you regularly clean Prefetch manually?
Do you never clean Prefetch?
Did you even know Prefetch existed?
Do you allow CCleaner to do it?
Does cleaning Prefetch increase loading times by up to 100%? In your experience?

PS: Coincidentially, in today's list of programs, there is a new version of CCleaner just released. I haven't installed it yet. It will be interesting to see if the Prefetch default is gone. Bazza

Did anyone else ever notice this?
After doing a registry clean with ccleaner, whenever I go to the store and click on an app, it tells me that its broken and I have to refresh my computer.
I luckily made a backup before doing it, but I still want to do a registry clean on my computer again.

Answer:CCleaner Registry Cleaner Breaks Windows 8 Store

Registry cleaners generally cause more problems than they solve and should generally be avoided. There is little evidence that regular registry cleaning improves performance or reliability and much that it does not. CCleaner is better than most but the registry cleaner should not be used.

There really is nothing wrong with deleting unneeded registry entries or repairing damaged ones, if it could be done reliably. As it turns out that is a very difficult thing to do. Because of the very nature of the registry it is very difficult to determine with 100% reliability that a specific entry is unneeded or in error. As a result, a registry cleaner must often guess. Most guesses are correct, but some are not. Deleting just one registry entry in error could have serious consequences. Since the benefits are so questionable why take the risk?

The registry is a database so the analogy of cleaning is flawed and essentially meaningless.

Registry cleaners do have some value when used by an expert to solve a specific problem. But in inexpert hands (the usual case) they can be dangerous.

Kaspersky Pure Released
A recent security software trend seems to be to offer multiple editions of a program that differ in functionality in price. If you look at companies like Microsoft, Symantec or Kaspersky you notice that they all offer different editions of their programs.
Security software in particular is offering two, three or sometimes even more different versions of their products to their customers. There is usually a basic edition, an advanced edition and a complete edition.
Kaspersky Internet Security was until recently the flagship product of Kaspersky with Kaspersky Antivirus being the basic software program. Kaspersky now has released Kaspersky Pure which adds features on top of the Internet security product.

Hi all, after reading the following entry on Bleeping Computer ( http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/373006/registry-cleaners/?p=2091100) I noticed that reference was made to "some" when describing registry cleaners/ optimizers so I am looking for some clarification and advice on whether the following two products are sound and reliable, and also whether I am using them correctly.
 
CCleaner : (Windows & Applications Clean, Registry Clean)
My approach to using the 'cleaner" for Windows & Applications has been to simply select everything other than "wipe free space" and then delete any entries that have been produced by the scan.
The same can be said for the "registry" scan where I simply delete anything that the registry scan produces.
 
I understand that placing "blind faith" in a free software product that has the ability to remove registry entries is not without risk, however, I cannot remember an instance where using this tool on a daily basis over a number of years has caused issues, impacted on performance or damaged my pc (at least not that I have noticed).

Answer:[Registry/System Cleaners] CCleaner & Kaspersky Additional Tools

Regedit...is the only sound way of editing the Windows registry.  Using regedit results in manual scans with specific intent and knowledge, as opposed to the unknown apporach used by ANY "registry cleaner/optimizer".
 
It's really that simple .
 
Any user who wants to edit the Windows registry...and has no clue how to proceed within the Windows registry to accomplish such...probably should not think about making registry edits of any sort.
 
The registry of any system...is constantly changing, based on what is installed on the hard drive.  What would make you think that a program/script written by an unknown stranger...could accurately modify your registry to enhance it?
 
About the only thing that a "registry cleaner" can do...would be to restore the Windows registry to its default ("I just installed Windows") state...or remove entries which are viewed by the program/script as not being applicable (to what).  Neither is the correct action.  And Windows can reset default registry values, so there is nothing gained by installing a program to do this.
 
Ask any knowledgeable user who is capable of making registry edits via regedit...if he or she will suggest that you use a "registry cleaner/optimizer" program on your system...that will give you some idea of whether such programs are worth the time of installation.
 
The fact that none of these "programs" ever provides any specific results to be expected, etc...and that anti... Read more

Norman Malware Cleaner is a Norman program utility that may be used to detect and remove specific malicious software (malware).
Note that it should not be used as a substitute for running normal proactive antivirus protection, but rather as a reactive tool to handle systems that are already infected.

By downloading and running the program below it will clean an infected system completely:
* kill running processes that are infected
* remove infections from disk (including ActiveX components and browser helper objects)
* restore correct registry values
* remove references created by malware in hosts file
* remove windows firewall rules for malicious programs

Note:
- To give Norman Malware Cleaner the best working conditions possible, we recommend that you start the computer in Safe mode before running the program. To do this, tap the F8 key on your keyboard during startup, before Windows starts, and select Safe mode with Networking from the menu that appears.
- Pressing the F8 key at just the right time may be a little difficult (after the firmware POST process completes, but before Windows displays graphical output). If the F8 method does not work, repeat the procedure, but press the F8 key more quickly, or press it several times.
- On some (older) computers, the F8 key method may not work. In these Windows versions you may also configure your computer to start in Safe mode through the System Configuration Utility (msconfig).
- In some cases Norman Malware Cleaner may requir... Read more

Norman Malware Cleaner is a Norman program utility that may be used to detect and remove specific malicious software (malware).
Note that it should not be used as a substitute for running normal proactive antivirus protection, but rather as a reactive tool to handle systems that are already infected.

By downloading and running the program below it will clean an infected system completely:
* kill running processes that are infected
* remove infections from disk (including ActiveX components and browser helper objects)
* restore correct registry values
* remove references created by malware in hosts file
* remove windows firewall rules for malicious programs

Note:
- To give Norman Malware Cleaner the best working conditions possible, we recommend that you start the computer in Safe mode before running the program. To do this, tap the F8 key on your keyboard during startup, before Windows starts, and select Safe mode from the menu that appears.
- Pressing the F8 key at just the right time may be a little difficult (after the firmware POST process completes, but before Windows displays graphical output). If the F8 method does not work, repeat the procedure, but press the F8 key more quickly, or press it several times.
- On some (older) computers, the F8 key method may not work. In these Windows versions you may also configure your computer to start in Safe mode through the System Configuration Utility (msconfig).
- In some cases Norman Malware Cleaner may require that you resta... Read more

Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2015 15.0.1.415 - released

page download:http://products.kaspersky-labs.com/products/english/homeuser/kav2015/kav15.0.1.415en_6834.exe

About:
Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2015 FINAL (v15.0.1.415)
"Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2015 is the latest edition of Kaspersky's solid and reliable antivirus engine.

The package provides strong real-time protection against malicious files, email attachments, web scripts, instant messaging content, and more. Icons in your search engine results warn of dangerous sites, a vulnerability scanner highlights security holes, and there's capable anti-phishing protection thrown in.

This build adds a whole layer of extra protection from Cryptolocker-type malware. Kaspersky's System Watcher now looks out for suspect programs trying to modify user files, and immediately backs up the originals. If the suite finds the changes were malicious then not only will the malware be removed, but you'll get your original documents back, too.

There are limitations with this scheme. In particular, backups are deleted when Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2015 is closed, so if the threat isn't detected in the current session then you may lose some files. Still, it's a welcome step forward.

Elsewhere, there are the usual general improvements across the board: Kaspersky says Anti-Virus 2015 is faster, more lightweight and responsive than before.

All this is presented in a simplified, subdued interface. Plain buttons highlight four ma... Read more

Powerful removal utility that will help you easily get rid of various types of malware!

AVZ Antiviral Toolkit is a freeware application designed by Kaspersky to delete adware and spyware modules, network worms, trojan horses (Trojan, TrojanDownloader, TrojanSpy) and Dialers. The utility implements specialized algorithms for detecting keyloggers, finding and blocking rootkits etc.

AVZ Antiviral Toolkit is a comprehensive security solution that comes with tons of tools designed to help you keep the computer in perfect shape and protect it against malicious files.

Besides the fact that it?s able to scan your drives and detect viruses, adware, spyware, dialers and other risky tools, AVZ Antiviral Toolkit comes packed with so many great apps that it?s almost impossible not to stay away from virtual threats.

For example, AVZ Antiviral Toolkit has a process manager to give you control over the running processes, but also special searching utilities to have a look in the registry or into your cookies.

Of course, there?s a dedicated feature to manage the programs that boot together with the operating system, as well as tiny tools to organize IE extensions and control panel applets.

But AVZ Antiviral Toolkit has much more than that, although the whole application relies on the scanning process that could let you know if there?s something wrong with your computer.

Even if everything goes quite smooth, it?s recommended to close the other running processes be... Read more

So far, there are three ?official? anti-virus partners for the Windows 7 beta ? AVG, Symantec (with Norton 360 3.0 beta) and Kaspersky Lab, with the latter announcing the release of its Windows 7 solution as a ?technical prototype?.




Announcing a ?new antivirus engine? in ?technical prototype? form, Kaspersky Lab has made its Windows 7 antivirus solution available for free download to Windows 7 beta users.

Promising ?complex antivirus protection from all types of Internet threats?, as antivirus and security companies are wont to do, the release underscores Kaspersky?s desire to be seen as a fast security mover in an ever changing threat landscape.

Alexey Kalgin, Director Product Marketing, Corporate Business Division, Kaspersky Labs said:
?We knew the release of the new version of Windows would be a huge event for the IT community, which is why we were prepared for it.
