Despite a few misses, Zappit System Cleaner improves your system performance by eradicating space-hogging obsolete files and files that may endanger your privacy. The Windows XP-inspired interface has a safe deletion mode for less experienced users and an advanced mode with features for customizing cleanups. Like most competing applications in its class, Zappit removes traces from Windows system areas including the Recycle Bin, the Clipboard, temp folders, and the Recent Documents list. We’re impressed by how well it eradicates Web-surfing traces from IE, Mozilla, Opera, Netscape, and Firefox. However, cleaning traces from third-party applications is narrowly focused on only a few programs. The cleaning process is fast and accurate, and we like that Zappit automatically creates a restore point before cleaning. You can easily schedule cleaning tasks to operate when you’re away. Oddly, it doesn’t include a secured file shredder, a common feature in cleaning programs. Novice users will appreciate the few handy wizards for managing start-up programs and Internet favorites. This free program helps keep your computer healthy and is a good addition to your toolset.
