Ramblings of an old Doc

 

I was perusing ghacks when I found this article.

Since so many of us use the app, I thought you should read Martin Brinkmann's advice.

I've not had any issues with the location thing, but then I have all notices and updates turned off to prevent any kind of tracking, etc.  I have 5.44, but am looking into Wise Cleaner as a replacement to CCleaner as I no longer trust the program.

Give Wise Cleaner a shot. The freebie is called Wise Cleaner 365. It does a lot more than CCleaner. I have it and it reduced my boot up time to nearly half.

Well I've given Wise Care 360 a go and gave CCleaner the flick.  Yup, I'm so impressed with Wise Care 360 that I purchased the pro version to cover 3 machines for just 30 Aussie bucks.  Not bad, eh?  And yes, it does more than CCleaner... even the free version.

thank you very much.

Have installed wise 365 free version to try. Seems to do more than CCleaner which I have been using for years.

Will keep trying for a while and will probably update to the pro version as it appears there is a lot more it can do.

Yeah, the pro version is worth the money... 30 bucks for 3 machines, can't go past that... but get in quick to get it at that price.

Just tried Wise 365 free. Wow, I'm impressed - it knocks CCleaner Pro into touch!

Hi Starkers

Did you do the one year or lifetime upgrade

Hi Starkers

The deal was for 3 machines for 1 year, though I think it still runs after that, just no updates, etc.

OK I have upgraded to the pro version and it is great. Computer speed has picked up heaps.

Yeah, I noticed a difference after I upgraded to the Pro version.  The free version beat CCleaner hands down, but there is no comparison with the Pro version, which runs rings around CCleaner, both free and pro

The Pro ver might be worth a look then...

I've had the pro version for a couple of days now and it really is excellent. Cost me £12 and for that it does loads of stuff.

CCleaner is pants by comparison.

Yep, and there are various deals on right now to make it even better value for money.
