G-Lock Temp Cleaner - most hard drive are full of junk files that have been left behind by other clean up software. These junk files waste space and can even cause problems with the normal operation of your computer. G-Lock Temp Cleaner (GTC) searches your drives potentially unwanted files so you can deal with them all with just one click. Unlike standard "cleaner" type programs, GTC also identifies garbage files on the HDD of the network computers.
When you uninstall a program, files can get left behind. You really don't need these files because they're associated with a program that you don't even have anymore. Kinda annoying, isn't it? That's why this proggie is so nice. It'll find "junk" files and then let you do with them what you wish. Believe me, ignoring those files results in loss of disk space and a system that won't run up to snuff. Heck, even still-installed programs leave temp files scattered about your hard drive. Jerks! "Unlike standard 'cleaner' type programs, GTC also identifies garbage files on the HDD of the network computers." Careful with that option, folks. - www.lockergnome.com
Most of your Windows applications create temp files on your hard disk when they are running. These files are supposed to be removed but not all programs do it automatically. The temp files may have been accumulated to megabytes since you have begun using your PC, and they can waste large amounts of your hard drive space without you knowing it! This will lead to the reducing of free space on your hard disk, superfluous fragmentation, reduction of the system performance. So it is recommended to clear your hard disk of the temp, junk and obsolete files in order to keep your hard drive in perfect condition. Otherwise as well as wasting space on your system, temp, obsolete and junk files can produce very hazardous results if they are not properly cleaned from your drive on a periodical basis.
The symptoms that these garbage files can produce include:
В· Lost network and Internet connections.
В· Sudden application lock ups.
В· Fatal errors in your applications.
