Is this genuine as it always finds loads of files as junk and also privacy invasions,even after a few minutes online

Not one that i have used. Is Ccleaner not doing the job for you?

I use it occasionally, it works ok.

Make sure you untick yahoo toolbar when installing, unless you want it.
I always start it by clicking on care, then it gices a full scan, and repairs.

It does however usually inform you that yo still have 100s of other problems left, to encourage you to upgrade to a paid version.

However as it appearts to repair all on its scans, i just put up with the free version.

It's good, all it is doing is clearing out temp files and other junk.
I find it an excellent program.

It's a reasonable freebie, the only problem I have with it is the ridiculous performance claims Iobit make for it :-
"improves both system and Internet performance by up to 400%."
Not very likely. But as long as you take the claims with a very large pinch of salt it's OK.

Thats a big lump of salt !! lol

I have the Pro version on a six month freebie and ,having used the free version before that, can honestly say that I detect no difference whatsoever between it cleaning up the 30 odd errors which the free version found and the 130 odd errors which the pro version detects.

Belatucadrus is also quite right in saying that their internet performance improvement claims are waaay! over the top.

I will,however,revert to the free version when my freebie Pro expires.
