Impressed - Although I’m sorely disappointed with AVG Antivirus for Mac (not on App Store, maybe for a good reason), I actually am quite impressed with AVG Cleaner. I didn’t expect much, but I pressed the “Scan Mac” button just to see what it would do. To my utter surprise, it scanned very fast (just a few seconds) and found about 16 gb of stuff to delete. I looked through the entire list first before I agreed to delete anything. I was really surprised with all the files it found to delete - places I never would’ve thought to look. Maybe 16 gb doesn’t seem like a lot, but on a 2011 Macbook Air every bit of space counts. Because I was so happy with the results, I ran the duplicate finder also and was equally impressed that every single duplicate picture it found was indeed a duplicate (I looked at every single one before I deleted anything). Now I feel I can trust this program, so next time I won’t check every single file and it will go a lot faster. I previously used Omnidisk Sweeper to list files in order from largest to smallest, so I could delete some larger files to free up space… but this app is much easier, faster, and prettier to look at. P.S. I skipped the account setup (mentioned by another reviewer). It’s optional; you can click “not now” or something like that. Didn’t bother me at all that that app tries to set up an account. Just say no.
Unreliable Interface and Operation - AVG unexpectedly deleted files in categories that I did not select. System files? I pray not! In any event, now I cannot put them back, because this program does not have a log file or the ability to back out of mistakes. Perhaps I misunderstood the interface? Or maybe this freeware has not been sufficiently thought-through. This is a warning to any potential users - FIRST create a backup of your system (CCcloneer, etc) and then be absolutely clear on the operation of this poorly documented software PRIOR to use.

Great Cleanup for re-claimed Space! - I’m on an iMac, late 2011, with 12GB of RAM, running El Capitan. I’ve used other “apps”, but none has returned more space the "AVG Cleaner". Have it for more than 1.5 years, I run this app every month & usually re-claims about 1.3GB including many hidden files. I like to keep my iMac “clean” also by using Dr. Cleaner which offers Disc Cleaning & Memory Optimization, (removes previously closed apps footprint automatically). Would highly recommend this app! And it’s Free.
Great Cleaner! - This is the best cleaner I’ve used. I’ve tried other programs, but I wasn’t too impressed with them, I always came back to this one. The only suggestion I’d make is when I clean my system and I have Safari open, it says I need to quit Safari before I continue. It would be nice if this app closed it for me. Great app!
Too Much Competition! - This cleaner tries to delete other antivirus, just like Avast. The antivirus ‘Avira’ is very useful, and this application calls it ‘junk files.’ JUNK FILES! Avira helped my Mac get rid of Flashback! How dare AVG do that to such a good antivirus! On the good side, I got 1.3G more on my Mac. Please, AVG, consider Avira your friend.
