Optimise your PC in minutes with this powerful system maintenance suite

SlimCleaner is a powerful PC maintenance tool that will help to clean up, optimise and maintain your computer.

The program's Cleaner module, for instance, detects and removes temporary files left behind by Windows and your applications. It's effective, too, recovering roughly the same amount of drive space as CCleaner in our tests.

The Optimize module lists your Windows startup programs and services, and displays ratings provided by other SlimCleaner users to recommend any that you might be able to do without. In previous reviews we found many programs were marked as "unrated", limiting its usefulness, but coverage now is very good: out of 86 programs installed on our test PC, only 11 had no rating at all.

The same crowd-sourced information is used to rate your installed applications in the Uninstaller module, and your toolbars, browser helper objects and other components in the Hijack Log. We didn't agree with every rating, inevitably, but this is still an easy way to get another perspective on the various programs installed on your system.

And bonus extras include various disk tools (Shredder, Duplicate Finder, Disk Analyzer, Defrag and more), and a "Windows" panel for easy access to fifteen of the most important Windows maintenance tools.

Verdict:

An excellent system optimisation and cleanup tool

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
