User Comments

  • [Official website of the piriform] Very good software developers, who are the great authors of CCleaner, Defraggler, Recuva and Speccy utility.
    When installing free versions of their programs that offer you a Google Chrome and Google toolbar in a non-application but not misleading, simply Uncheck boxes (so beware if you do not want Chrome or Google Toolbar), but I do not care, as both Chrome and Google Toolbar software are safe and not malicious.
  • All software developers cleaning computer that can think, piriformis is the only one I can trust. Of course, their products are priced [which usually means nothing good], but allow you to use more than 75% of its potential without paying a penny. There is also a full privacy policy fledged and your contact information and identity management team are fully open for access to the Company menu at the top. In addition, the site is not mounted with certificates [trustmark only Symantec solo], which usually means not forged and certificates. Rogue software cleaning equipment is typically mounted with forged certificates, which obliges to pay for it to work even if you have a credit card or not, and often lack things like contact information.
  • Good company with such products.No + n + crawlers useful virus No adware + No ads! + It does not support HTTPS = Rating 4/5
  • It is the official website of Piriform, from where you can download tools like CCleaner or Speccy.
  • ;useful software, but always pushing people to buy the paid version by making users jump through hoops to get the free version.
    Recuva really should consider adding a warning to the installer will not install on a hard disk that has been erased data, though; because they can damage the missing data.

*Should I care about this metric? Not necessarily, as score refers to the whole domain, and bigger domains like or might have low scores due to a few dirty URLs.
