    I have IObit Advanced SystemCare 8.1 Pro, and one of its main features is to run a daily scan to fix registry and shortcut errors, clean up junk files and empty folders, maybe empty out the recycle bin, etc.

    The software is okay, but it has a bunch of other ****, like virus/malware detection and removal, that I have no interest in having. I have MBAM Premium and Avast Premier, and I feel that is enough.

    Are there any other programs that can do daily cleanup tasks but that don't have 20 other different features and add-ons?

    Thanks.

    I do not trust IOBit from stealing data from Malwarebytes. The quality of its products has been declining in recent years and received very bad reviews, even using the BitDefender engine.

    For cleaning, there are other more reliable solutions, to me, such as Wisecare360.

    Let me recommend to clean the computer once a week, not once a day

    Have a nice day!

    Yeah I forgot to include that. I was becoming wary of the software myself, that's another reason I was asking for an alternative.
    Thank you! I'll probably start using that instead :)

    Iobit products do more bad than good , especially their registry cleaner wich can really mess your pc up! infact it is best to never use a registry cleaner to clean up your pc , when uninstalling products it is better to search for left over folders and reg keys manually and with the help of void tools search everything. for other house keeping software let me suggest ; ccleaner , wisecare 365 and privazer. with these three you are good to go ;)
