System Cleaner


Recommended Posts

Hello,

ESET Internet Security user, on WIndows 10 Pro.

Just looking at "System Cleaner", and I cannot find detailed informations about the changes that I can reset on my PC with this tool.

Can you help me ?

Thanks.

Yeah it does not tell you the actual changes just that changes have been made

Thanks @peteyt

Is there a way to know these changes ?

If I click on "reset", what are the risks ?

I think "System Cleaner" is primarily to restore system files that may have been damaged by a virus or malware.

I don't think it's meant to be a "Cleaner" for any other purpose such as temp files, cookies, web history, etc.

If you are not having any issues I wouldn't reset anything.

It's designed to revert settings that may have been changed possibly by malware. I have suggested a few times that there is not enough information and no logging of this feature to see what has been changed.

You are right, it would probbaly be better to do nothing ! But this "System Cleaner" is not very useful:rolleyes:

Thanks foneil.

It would be nice to know what the settings are currently and what Eset would reset it to. More detail would be very helpful. Perhaps I'm missing something.

I think it could be very useful if you had an infection screw up your system files. Otherwise not so much. But that's it's purpose and I'm sure it would do it well.

Resets back to Computer default is all I understand it to mean. But I agree/understand that it would be good to have a list of what flagged it in the first place and what will be reset.

Or even at least add it to the logs so that when it makes a change each change is logged. If a user changes a setting with it and it changes something they need there is currently no way to either revert or to simply just see what change was made

Hopefully this feature will be improved on the future ESET releases;)

How about next time you ad a feature you first put a help file that helps no one with it? I mean who just random adds components/cleanders and says nothng about what it actually cleans/changes? why just why lol I mean sure it may not change anything important but is chance with all the settings and apps on new pcs

 

I just cant get my hea around the fact that a company as big as ESET would do this and not say what it changes or have it log what change as every time you make change to pc you should know at it change in case it affects other service. It cleans system restore? what does it clean as I never seen it take away or add restore points or change system restore in any way.

 

Seriously ESET do not do this again without adequte help files or at least post on the site or forum what it does so we know, is it too much to ask after paying for ESET to ask for txt to be added or just reply to this post saying what it does lol, even the moderator for ESET does not know. 

 

Seriously I will switch to another AV because of this as no explanation and people asking and the mods dont even know so whats the point of supporting ESET who add things and no support not even an expiation?

 

Its not just this its a few of the settings and things also that the help and documentation for is vague and just lacking in any kind of explanation and then people post on a forum thats by ESET and not one guy has a full explanation. Just add cleaner add reg fix next add this add that but dont add the help files and support to go with it. I know why dont we all post guessing and asking while ESET sit back and do nothing when its just txt that needs written or copy pasted from some old notes.

 

Not what I expect from ESET and not what I am paying for so either get this explained soon or I am moving AV.

Is this supposed to be a joke? some info? that link does not give much more info than we already know so why is it even being posted and linked like its an explanation? your a moderator can you not like find out? am i really asking too much here? a explanation in txt that should already be posted so we know whats what, we pay money to use this so get it sorted.

 

 

Its only been out a month with no explanation and this thread is almost a month old and not one guy from ESET is even posting to say. What is this guys?

System Cleaner should be basically used when instructed by customer care after cleaning specific threats. There's a brief description about what clicking the Reset button will reset (e.g. "Settings that can change the behavior of your computer, such as file associations").

Currently we've integrated the very first version of the feature into v11 and it's subject to further changes and improvements.

cool well its clear no one knows what it clans change fix but am sure its all good even thought no one can say what it does. so cool cool. Next time your adding things maybe ad coumentation forst? or if you dont know what it dos just tell us with next build of WSWT

 

makes a lot of sense  and only been asking days now and other people longer and the question has still not been answered.. At lest you are trying to anser it but if you dont know then tiy cant say and the vauge child like desptions and help files where obviously done by someone else who dose not know.. Dos the person /madepersons who developed this know?

It seems that this does not work correctly, I for example always deactivate the "restore system" function, and when I get into the system cleaner it informs me that it is deactivated, however when I give it the instruction to restore it, there is no change, "restore system "remains deactivated.
