Overtime, as you use Windows, many types of umwanted junk files clutter up your hard disk. These junk files serve no purpose and cost you hard disk space. There are many tools available over the internet to remove such junk files from your system. System Ninja is one of them. System Ninja is a fast, powerful and effective system optimization solution for Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8. It is designed to quickly remove unwanted files, increase system performance and help fix problems. System Ninja has a file scanning engine which removes junk files from your computer. It performs a heuristic analysis of every file, identifying what does not belong to your system.
System Ninja is free and available both as an installer and as a portable edition. You can download System Ninja from its website. The download is available both in form of an installable program and as a portable application. I prefer the portable edition as it does not require any installation and you can start running it right-away. When you start System Ninja, a window shows up with many tabs – Junk Scanner, System Tools, PC Analysis and Options.
Under the Junk Scanner tab, you can choose which types of junk files you want to scan for. Then click on the Scan for Junk button to start the scanning process. In a short time, System Ninja would scan your hard disk (or folder) and list all the unwanted files. You can right-click on an individual file and choose to delete it from the context menu. If you want to remove all the files, then click on the Delete Everything button.
Under the System Tools tab, you can find useful tools like Startup Manager, App Uninstaller and Process Manager. The Startup Manager can be used to control the automatically starting programs in Windows. The App Uninstaller is a tool to remove the unwanted software installed on your system. The Process Manager works like Windows Task Manager and can be used to terminate processes and programs. Under the PC Analysis section you can find categorized information about your system like operating system, hard drive, motherboard etc.
In the Options tab, you can select various settings that control the basic behavior of System Ninja. You can decide if you want it to display a drive selection dialog, scan only the system drive or scan all the drives when you scan for junk files. You can also choose other options like displaying a warning before deleting or checking for updates etc. There are options to set the scan inclusions and exclusions as well.
