The Cleaner

The Cleaner has been in development for 13 years and has been through many changes. It was the very first anti-malware product on the market way back in 1998.

We are always looking for ways to improve the product so any feedback is appreciated!

Ask me 'if I'm sure' when I click the exit or stop buttons; It will prevent a lot of frustration

Really, you can scan your computer for an hour, and if you accidently click one of these buttons - you have to rescan your computer.

Change the user interface. It looks too bleek and unmodern!

The first thing I noticed when I installed this piece of software was the user interface and how it was SO bad. No offence but surely for a yearly release (which I assume you do)you would upgrade the UI? Compared to payed alternatives this UI is...

Use MUCH less RAM and CPU during scan

I'm running a scan right now, and it's using 50% CPU (on a dual-core CPU) and about 550 MB of RAM. This is WAY too much.

Program has to start and to work faster! It would be nice to have additionally a timer, that says when the program will be finished with the scan.

Be able to have access to a reference URL or database of known malware which is detected by the program to see just what it is and how it may have gotten into my PC.

Add a quarantine section

The quarantine sectioned files can be reviewed to see if you need to have them removed. a quarantine section to either repair the file or restore the file, a section to delete the file & just after having the files deleted your program offers...

Have a gaming/offline mode so the active would stop running for games or full screen apps.

Would like to be able to set the cleaner active up so that if a full screen app such as a game is being played it would pause the active scan. Or offline mode for traveling and just watching movies.

Having a more detailed description of Malware found would be helpful.

The program is promising but several objects were detected and im not sure what to do with them. I know they could be quarantined and i could wait to see the effect but I dont like that option.

Use GPU acceleration

Tasks like this would be well suited for GPU acceleration, and I'm sure both ATI and Nvidia would be happy to give some help when it comes to using CUDA and Streams. this would give your product a serious speed advantage over the competition,...

UI is a little 'Linux-like', seems to be an issue, maybe Windows users don't like

The separate window for 'analysing' ought to be integrated with the main UI. It looks like something totally different to the main scan process.

Get the scanning faster

It seems as if the program is sitting still and think a lot whilst scanning.

have more detailed reports other than just 'what's found'

Just listing your name for malware found is not enough. Every malware manufacturer may use a different name for the same malware trace, so your identification will be different from another vendor's. Paid versions of other software provide the...

shrink the UI Programs keep taking up more screen space whether or not they need the space

there's a lot of dead space in the full screen visual. Too many programs are doing this. Remember when the Windows Media Player was a nice compact box that you could expand when your wanted? Real Player? Even Rhapsody (although it makes more...

see the update feature running in the background and do simultaneous malware checking. As an end user I would prefer running TheCleaner for checking the malware rather than updating the program.

Too much traffic on web-server, can net get file. Maybe you should extend this giveaway an extra day so people who want the file can actually get it to try it out and leave constructive feedback?
