Kingsoft PC Doctor offers a suite of tools to optimize, clean and secure your PC. Click the Optimizer button, for instance, and you’ll find modules to help you take control of your startup programs and Windows services. It doesn’t simply list what’s installed on your PC: it also offers recommendations on which programs and services can be safely deleted.
The hard drive cleaning options are similarly thorough. PC Doctor doesn’t just delete your temporary folders and web browser cache; it also highlights a great deal of Windows junk. The Trace Cleaner module wipes away your activity histories in Windows and many applications; the OS Thinner lists Windows files which can safely be removed (sample music, pictures, videos and more); and the Large Files tab lists the 100 largest files on your system drive, for a quick look at where your drive space has gone.

The Traffic Monitor displays a graphical view of your open internet connections, for instance, while a tiny activity monitor shows your current internet upload and download speeds, CPU and RAM-hogging applications, and more. The program aims to detect Trojans and dangerous plugins, for instance, but just displayed a long list of false positives on our test PC.
