Would somebody tell me what they know about (SparkTrust PC Cleaner Plus)?

If you have never heard of it, suppose I should just remove it. They claim to be a Microsoft Partner.

✔ Best Answer
Sadly there are many such "check/find and fix it all" packages out there in www-land. Many do as this one appears to - "discovers" all manner of problems and then asks for money to fix them. Invariably they are best avoided.

Unfortunately many are quite convincing, especially to those not well versed in computer software etc. And some of these outfits are now trying to sue reviewers who post negative/critical reviews.

One that does do what it says - and is free (although they do appreciate a wee donation if you feels so inclined) - is

Many here have used this utility and been well served by it; and recommend it. You have to read the few guidelines and follow them carefully. On the same site there is other stuff - which you don't need.

Also many of these outfit who claim to a Microsoft partner - invariably "aren't"; in effect conning the possible user/customer.

I would remove the utility; then run a few cleaner utilties to be sure it hasn't left anything behind... There are several we recommend regularly here; and all "free".

I use these.

CCleaner is probably the most widely recommended free (& safe) cleaner that's currently out there. I suggest using either the Slim or Portable version. The standard version contains bundled software.

Remember that whenever you install "any" software downloaded off the web... use the manual/custom option to install; never use the proffered/default "automatic".

Watch for and uncheck any pre-checked boxes - apart from the one for the actual item you wish to install. Sadly these days just about everything comes with pre-checked for installation add-ins; which you neither need nor want. A lot of this "stuff" can be a real PIA to remove at times.
