I have read a lot of bad reviews about this software and felt that I should tell my experiences with AppCleaner. I recently downloaded and installed the latest version and tried it. It was very fast compared to say Privazer, and cleaned much more than Ccleaner or Wise DC. Even after running the three mentioned cleaners beforehand, AppCleaner found another 2.43 gigs of junk!
I have suffered no ill effects from the cleaning and it greatly improved overall speed and responsiveness of my Win 7 64 bit laptop.
I'm not sure why people have had such bad luck with it. Maybe the earlier versions were dangerous but the latest version has been a blessing for me.
Ok, with risk of getting pummeled by someone who may have had luck with this software, onward...
Install went fine, fairly easy to understand and use application, looked promising. Until I used it.
It came up with errors galore, could not clean anything, not even IE cookies, saying they were in use. Which I know they weren't. Then again, it said most everything was unable to be cleaned and had the yellow shield next to it.
With risk of shutting everything off, which I did, it STILL said most everything was in use. A bit peeved at this point, I did a restart, after everything loaded, I got the same result.
Even a bit more perturbed at this point, I loaded it on my Vista laptop, maybe it was my 64 OS giving grief. Nope, same results, did nothing, cleaned nothing. False bravado. I know because I shortly after ran IE and checked, everything was still there. Oh wait! That's right, it did delete (ALL MY FIREFOX BOOKMARKS). So yeah, it did something. I never even had that option checked.
I did solve the issue however, I used Ccleaner instead.
That aside, I went to their little link for a 10 coupon for giving my feedback (albeit not sure they would like what I had to say) but it is merely to buy more of their products.
This did absolutely nothing, cleaned nothing, gave me nothing, except a headache.
I would be more than surprised to see if anyone else gets this to work.
