Runs pretty smooth and gets rid of spyware but it should confirm when you delete any spyware, etc.

I haven't used in full your product, I only did a quick scan. Today I'll give a full scan, and then
I will answer back my opinion about your product.
Thanks a lot for your interest to this matter,

Not detecting Spyware

Your software did not detect any of the spyware detected by XoftSpy.

It didnt do anything

Software didn't do anything useful and most notably did not recognize trojan I had.

Interface looked as if who ever designed it were aiming at third grader crowd and wanted to make sure it had largest buttons saturation per window area possible.

Fairly easy to use its just doesn't do shit.

I'm experimenting wih about sixteen different antispy&antivirus free software, trying to find a good compatable second layer of defence foe my shawsecure. OOPS spywaredoctor just poped up and said scan was successful it,s not suppose to be enabled to do auto scans!!I had to uninstallabout four so far not compatable. WinCleaner AntiSpyware is still in the running. I think there is a market for this that users wouldn't mind paying for,but not as much as for the primary software. So far i still have the shield unabled as am also running SpywareBlaster .I may try shutting down SpywareBlaster and activate the WinCleaner AntiSpyware shields instead to see how that works. I'm not afraid to do these things because i'm new to computers but like to push things.One thing i don't like the pop ups and having to confirm all the time otherwise it seems to be running great! Acts8.

The functionality seems ok, and i did have the chance to interact a little with the program. it did warn on registry keys being changed, during certain operation. but, since no major threat has come to my attention, in the recent period of time, i am not really in the position of stating that this application has, indeed, protected my computer. overall, it gives me that nice feeling that i plugged some of the security holes in my operating system. maybe a more dynamic behavior would increase that confidence, because, at this moment, one can say: "i don't see it doing anything!". that could be, probably, because my computer remained fairly clean, over the years, due to my efforts to have the best protection software installed. i am going to use this application from now on and, if something happens (in terms of errors or major discoveries) i will be happy to inform you about. best wishes.

WinCleaner AntiSpyware disappointment

Not sure if previous comment got 'sent' Installed WinCleaner a few days ago. Found it useless in regard to updating. It would NOT connect at anytime to the servers for either type of update. Kept coming up with error message saying 'connexion interreupted' or 'try again'. Fed-up. Since uninstalled and replced with SpyBot S & D which, like my Avast, updates properly and regularly.

Wincleaner Installation on Win98

Dear sirs,

I installed your program 'Wincleaner' on a computer using 'Win98SE'.
On the first use of your program after completion everything just locked up resulting me having to re format the drive and reinstall 'Win 98SE. I am not saying that the failure I experienced was the fault of your program but since reinstalling the operating system things are running ok again.

Kindest regards,

Terence A Mulliss

Wincleaner not for the blind

My name is Jason Bratcher.
The reason I'm writing this review is because I had a very difficult time with the ui of WinCleaner.
You see, the problem I have is that I was born blind.
I will never get my sight back.
So in the computer world, I rely entirely on a special program called a screen reader.
It takes the text written on the screen and translates it in to audible speech.
Screen readers use a special component called msaa (MicroSoft Active Accessibility) to retrieve pertinent info about on- and off-screen objects, dialogs, child elements, etc.
I was expecting to use the keyboard to get around the wincleaner ui, but I found it woefully inadequate.
The tab key would not move focus from element to element, i e, button to editbox to checkbox.
I physically had to use my screen reader's mouse cursor implement just to get around.
And even then I was not getting the kind of info I should have been getting.
For example, the "save" button in the settings dialog was not even indicated as a button.
In fact, the settings dialog, which a sighted user could easily figure out, did not appear at all to be a dialog to my screen reader.
I also didn't see any underlined letters to indicate access keys.
So from these three woes, I had a truly WinDirty time with WinCleaner.
What do I do now?

Program authors can do a few things to make their software half-heartily accessible to the totally blind who have absolutely no choice but to use a screen reader on a 24-7-365/366 basis, which essentially means every day:
•1. Try to stay away from your own custom (and oftentimes, really cute) window classes and use only the Microsoft foundation classes.
These standard classes are interpreted perfectly by my screen reader.
•2. Implement a tab order in your software and force the active focus to move when I press the tab key; reverse the direction if i use shift tab.
•3. Along the lines of window classes, make sure that each and every class has its own window.
That way, my screen reader will truly know where the focus is at all times.
And keep the parent-child family view in mind while writing your window layout.
•4. If you really have to use toolbars, include a tool tip for each (and every) graphical picture on the tool bar.
While my screen reader can read text, it can not say that a graphic is drawn like a dog, cat, horse, whatever, so the tool tip takes the place of it.
Put your tool tips in the status bar of the active window.
Average users like me prefer the Goldilox approach (you know, not too much info, not too little info, but just right).
If you can't decide what's just right, add a dialog box to your program to allow us to physically we write the tool tips to our liking.
•5. Use a standard menu bar.
Man, I have to take the kinda cute look away from your software, but a standards-looking and usable ui will go a very long way to make a piece of software more accessible then it is.
•6. Include access keys and follow standard pneumonic rules in Windows.
Oh, brother, am i really going to have to play "professor" for a day?
What if my words don't come out right?
Put an and (&) sign immediately to the left of the letter you want to designate as a access key.
E G, a file menu indicated with alt f would be written as "&File" without quotes, of course.
Add accelerator commands next to common tasks and honor them at all times.
Close, anyone?
Alt f4.
I am not sure how to do keyboard short cuts for accelerators.
•7. Blind people really do not care about the visual appearance of a window.
We would if we could see, but since i have an eye disease called RLF, that won't be happening any time soon, maybe never...
Honor and obey the window appearance that was set ahead of time for the user.
Do not assume anything.
If you have to give us feedback, give us the choice between a dialog box or a sound.
When you write the dialog box, write it in a form like this:
I will be writing this part as to how my screen reader actually says what it does when it is encountered.
Keep in mind that I will be writing audio descriptions that are to be excluded from the actual text at all costs.
This would be the title of a wincleaner dialog box:
"WinCleaner Scan Results dialog"
Take out the word "dialog" when you write a dialog box title.
"the scan is now finished.
running processes 66
Un-welcome 45 (76%)
total 60,000
Un-welcome 40,000 (75%)
total 80,000
Un-welcome 20,000 (25%)
Press "next" to decide what to remove."
"next button"
"Cancel button"
If we decide on a sound, use either the windows registry to save the location of the sound.
That guarantees that we can get to the sounds applet and change it that way.
or use a standard open dialog to let us browse for a sound.
Include a "play" or Listen" button so we can hear the fruits of our labor.
Again, Goldilox calls.
Don't make the sound loud and obtrusive, but also don't make it soft and saddle.
The sound of breaking glass or a passing ambulance should be a good enough indicator that this pc needs help.
From the sample description i wrote earlier, that pc really needs help!
And really include the percentages; i can then truly know how much damage that spyware has really done to the computer.
And if you really want to make things great, actually show the three progress bars while the scan happens.
In this example, you really don't want to see all of the progress bars go all the way to 100%?
I didn't think so.
Hope that explains my: WinCleaner Woes!
