What is SlimCleaner Plus?

SlimCleaner Plus is marketed as a PC performance optimizer that utilizes several techniques to attempt to increase the speed of the user's PC include registry tuning (which is a practice that is often criticized by experts as producing no results) as well as hard drive scrubbing. The overall value of such PC performance optimization is questionable yet might offer some benefit depending on the overall usability of the PC.

The most common release is 1.0.26102, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. It adds registry entry for the current user which will allow the program to automatically start each time it is rebooted. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The primary executable is named Icon.exe. The setup package generally installs about 8 files and is usually about 44.02 MB (46,157,824 bytes).
