SlimCleaner Plus™ Software Launches with Instant Alerts to Warn PC Users of Unwanted Software

Company’s Crowdsourced Approach Aggregates Real-Time Feedback from Millions of Users to Drive Targeted Recommendations

New York, June 02, 2015 /PRNewswire/ – SlimCleaner Plus™, the all-in-one solution for PC maintenance, marked the official market debut today of a new feature that alerts its registered users the minute they download a piece of potentially unwanted software to their computer. Instant Alerts draw from crowdsourced, user-generated data across a community of millions of users to offer consumers real-time insight about whether a piece of software might be unnecessary, or even harmful.

“Other tools on the market may alert consumers to the fact they just downloaded a piece of software, but SlimCleaner Plus goes a step further to offer real guidance from a community of millions of people about whether that software is actually necessary for their PCs,” said Bob Bryant, chief technology officer at Slimware Utilities.

With Instant Alerts, SlimCleaner Plus will instantly pop up an alert with recommended next steps based on community contributions. Registered users can decide if they want to remove the item or leave it. The SlimCleaner Plus user-generated data gives consumers detailed information about how other users rate the usefulness of items on a PC, so that consumers can decide which software to keep or discard to ensure their PCs stay in optimal condition.

SlimCleaner Plus is a PC cleaning, optimizing and maintenance product from Slimware Utilities, acquired by Mindspark, an operating business of IAC, last year. The downloadable software scans and analyzes an entire PC system, identifies the potential factors negatively impacting PC performance and security, and with its premium features fixes issues with a single click.

In addition to the new Instant Alerts feature, SlimCleaner Plus offers tools to:

  • Speed PC startup and shutdown times
  • Remove bloatware, junk files, temp files, cookies, broken code and other items that can hamper a PC’s performance
  • Remove “supercookies” and other online tracking technology
  • Increase browsing speed and functionality
  • Analyze what files and folders on a machine are taking up the most space
  • Permanently erase sensitive data, quickly
  • Automatically find duplicate files
  • Defragment a computer
  • Access Windows tools
  • SlimCleaner Plus is available for a special price of $29.97 at
