Over time, so-called information garbage accumulates in any computer: cache, remnants of program files, duplicates, forgotten pictures, documents, archives, and so on. This fills the PC's memory and affects the speed: the system begins to slow down, give errors. Also, users do not always remember that they need to delete confidential data, and leave them in the computer - thus, they can take possession of strangers. To solve these problems, there is the PrivaZer program: it analyzes all the elements stored on the PC, and shows that you can remove how much space is available, which photos and documents are duplicated. You just have to ask for cleaning, and all the excess will disappear. Below is a detailed look at how to use the software.
Work with the program PrivaZer.
PrivaZer can be downloaded from the developer's official website, it is important that it is free, the full owners of the program do not ask for rights.
- First, select the version of the application that corresponds to your Windows and bit. There is a modification for full installation and portable.
- Unpack and run the distribution, choose what you want to do: install or immediately open the program.
- Specify the appropriate language.
- Agree to the terms of the license agreement.
- Choose a path to store software files.
The program itself will create a shortcut on the desktop.
When you start the program, a window will immediately appear with a suggestion to customize it so that it is convenient for you. If you label yourself as a regular user, the software will be more automated and delicate: it will select only those files that can be accurately deleted without thinking. For advanced users, there are additional tweaks: you can choose which cookies, Microsoft Office documents, photos, cache to save, and which ones to remove. You can delete whole packages: for example, “Recently imported into a computer”, “Rarely used”, etc. The program also offers to clear the history of the browser - you should not agree if you do not want to lose access to the viewed content. The same goes for the “Autocomplete Forms” item - clearing will result in you having to re-enter passwords from sites and social networks. This is good for security reasons, but not very convenient. If you hide the thumbnails of sites, then lose the bookmarks in the browser panel, which allow you to quickly navigate to the desired resource.
Next, the program will ask if you would like to delete the gameplay history in standard Windows entertainment applications: mahjong, solitaire, Minesweeper, chess, etc. Of course, with a positive response, the records of all games will be lost. If you still have the Windows.old folder that was formed when you installed the new system on the old one, then PrivaZer will also offer to delete it. Better agree - you will free up several gigabytes of memory without losing anything. This section is a useless rudiment, you still can not use its contents. Now the program will ask you if you want to get rid of unnecessary system update packages. You can also agree and save a lot of free space on your hard disk. The last setting concerns the sleep mode: turning it off significantly relieves memory, but then it is worth considering whether it will be convenient for you.
Optimizing computer performance with PrivaZer
Now that the program is set up, you can use it: just click the “Start Analysis” button and specify additional scanning conditions:
- whether to create backup copies of registry entries;
- what type of cleaning should be done: “Smart”, “Deep” or “Fast”;
- which storages to consider and which ones to keep (for example, you can ignore the “Trash” or browser history ”).
After analysis, PrivaZer will clean up. It can also be three-tier: fast, turbo, or normal. The last one is the longest, but methodical. The first two should be chosen if you are in a hurry, but urgently you need to free up some passive memory and unload the RAM. After the procedure, a summary will appear on the screen: how many files were deleted and how much space did you manage to free up. Deep cleaning can be done infrequently - once every 3-4 weeks, and the rest of the time it is quite fast enough.
Just in case it is better to create a checkpoint before making changes to roll back Windows to a previous state and backup copies of registry entries. If you have problems, you can return everything as it was.
