Overall Rating: ★★★★½

The Good

  • Tiny
  • No installation required
  • Runs from a single exe
  • Has multiple options for safely cleaning up junk
  • It is made for novices; it won’t delete critical system files
  • It’s fast

The Bad

  • You may accidentally delete some browser settings like cookies and passwords if you aren’t paying attention
Features of the program (as stated by author):
“ATF-Cleaner.exe was once upon a time just my personal temp file cleaner. There became a need for a good temp file cleaner that could do the job safely and without removing files that are crucial to windows, so I decided I’d share it with the public.”
Overall Design & Ease of Use:
Extremely simple interface. Everything is clear, no confusing options, no large lists of files. Simply check boxes for what you want to remove, and tabs with the different options (Firefox, IE, Opera, System). This is the only thing major tech forums recommend as it is so basic and safe.
Overall Opinion of the Program:
Why get those big beefy cleaners like CCleaner, nCleaner, Glary Utilities, even Windows default cleaner, when you can have this tiny program that does it in seconds, safely, and tells you how much you space you saved.
