    I saw a review on this on Bnet.com, I went to the site and it had a lot of impressive features.

    Seems like just another CCleaner wannabee.

    I have tested it couple of times. Something slowdowns and freezes. I just bought Ace Utilities so I don't need any other.

    This is a very aggressive cleaner. Plus it creates problems. I just had it set to delete basic junk but ended up having to use my Windows recovery disk to fix problems.

    well i tried it acouple of times, and it wanted to clean stuff like my msn chat log.. i mean, i save that for a reason don't i <_<

    and it didnt find so much "registry errors" as say ccleaner or ace utilities.

    all in all, it had a lot of features but it went over board in the default settings, very agressive

    Also, ncleaner will not uninstall cleanly, which is a bit ironic in itself. Before all was said and done, just by trying a simple cleaning, I ended up having to use recovery disks for Windows and Office. Finally got ncleaner off my system after using other programs to do so and having to manually delete remnants.

    This is just a horrible product.

    Although it's a minor issue, on my Vista the close button doesn't work. I have to use the task bar.
    All in all, it seems as if CCleaner does the same with no problems.

    I'm surprised you guys aren't all in the habit of imaging your systems before testing this kind of software. Jeez, I won't even install the latest Windows Updates without a fresh image. But I guess life is more exciting when you live dangerously. Maybe I'll try it. :D
