CleanMyPC is a system utility for removing junk files and unnecessary items in the computer. It performs routine check-ups on the computer to make sure that there is no clutter taking up system space. The program is capable of detecting invalid registry entries, junk files, shortcuts that lead to nowhere, and items left after uninstalling programs. During the system scan, the program scans the computer for junk files under four categories (Trash & Junk, Caches & Logs, Extra Languages, and Help Files). Aside from getting rid of junk files, the program also comes with additional utilities that help in optimizing the computer.

• Autorun – This utility allows users to control programs that automatically launch in the system during computer start-up. All the applications that run during start-up are displayed in a single window for easier management.
• Secure Erase – Secure Erase makes sure that items deleted from the computer cannot be retrieved using other programs. The program does this by rewriting over the deleted files several times to make sure that they are permanently gone.
• Registry Cleanup – This is a maintenance tool that ensures that the registry is free from unnecessary entries, including malware and other threats.
• Complete Uninstall – In some cases, items are left in the system even after uninstalling a program. The Complete Uninstall feature makes sure that no traces are left behind when programs are uninstalled from the system.
