PC Cleanup Utility V5


Introduction: PC Cleanup Utility V5

About: Hello, my name is xp4xbox, a really old name that really has nothing to do with xbox consoles. Anyway I enjoy making programs and have several instructables on some of them. So far, I know VBScript, Batch, P...

If you are like me, you are probably running out of disk space on your computer which means you have to go through your files and programs to see what can be removed. Or you are tired of those cleanup utility's always nagging at you to pay the piper. So to fix this problem, I created a batch file that can aggressively scrub your hard drive clean of many junk files, freeing up (typically) anywhere from tens to thousands of megabytes of otherwise-wasted disk space. This file is a free and simple but powerful cleanup and privacy protection tool. So here it is. With this file you can choose to delete several things such as temp files, recent document shortcuts, internet cookies, ect. If you know batch/cmd/DOS you could edit this code to add any more features you may want. But incorrect editing may result in damage or loss of data.


There will be an update coming soon to make this instructable easier to understand as well as a new bug fix/program update so please bear with me as I prepare v6 for you.


Also, because the setup is a .exe file you WILL get download warnings from your browser. If you are unsure about downloading it i'll send you proof that it is not malicious. To install it, double-click on the file and run the setup. Please watch the video for more information on how to install it/use it.

Warning: When you delete the info of the browsers, it pretty much resets the browser so you will lose all saved information. Best used when you have a problem with your browser or a webpage and need to reset it.

10/11/2016: It's the end!

After over a year of developing this project, I have decided to discontinue it, v5 will be the last ever stable release, due to the bugs in v6 I have never fully released it. v3-5 will be still available for download and work perfectly fine on windows 7, vista and xp. However it does not work on windows 8 and 10. The source code will also be available to download for v2-6 note: (v2 is practically a different program and was never released). Even though I will not be developing any more versions, I will still be here to answer any questions you may have. Thanks to all who supported this project and I hope you enjoyed my program.
