Zappit is now available directly from us

A couple of weeks ago we became aware that CNet was bundling software with all their free downloads. We’re sorry that CNet has chosen to take this path. It’s bad enough when a trusted site takes advantage of that trust to make money, but the bundler CNet uses has the bundled software pre-selected in the installer and if you’re not careful you’ll install it with the program you wanted. And for every program you didn’t want but installed by mistake, CNet gets paid. This is not only cheating you – the user, but it’s cheating the company who is paying CNet to include their program in the bundle. If people aren’t installing it willingly then they’re likely to be angry and wonder where the software came from. So they’ll look at the software and blame the company who paid CNet to bundle it. Bad PR.

Anyway, we’ve been offering our software through CNet for several years. But since we’ve learned of CNet’s changes we’ve changed all our software links on our pages so the downloads of our programs come directly from us – not CNet.

One of the programs we often overlook, but one which we want to feature today because it’s a darn good program is Zappit – our own Windows cleaner. It works great with Windows 7 (32 and 64 bit) as well as with Windows XP and Windows Vista. And unlike other cleaner programs, Zappit is safe to use. There’s another cleaner program, one which many use, that has a registry cleaner built in – and this registry cleaner has caused many problems for many people. It’s not a good registry cleaner – in fact it can cause major problems. Zappit has no registry cleaner but it has lot of other useful and safe features. And it shows the actual amount of junk removed – it does not show an inflated figure.

Yes we’re tooting our own horn here, but Zappit is a great freeware program, that’s easy and safe to use. And now all our Zappit downloads come from us – not CNet. So when you download Zappit, that’s all you get. You get nothing else.

Zappit has a safe mode that will remove all the temporary and junk files the average user would want or need to clean. There is also an advanced mode that gives more advanced users access to more powerful cleaning features. So Zappit is perfect for beginners as well as advanced users.

Zappit has some other great tools and tweaks too:

Favorites/Start Menu Manager – With the click of a button, you can sort your Favorites alphabetically. or you can organize them manually. And, with a click you can sort the Windows Start Menu alphabetically. Windows Vista and Windows 7 do this automatically, so check your start menu to see if your start menu is sorted alphabetically. Windows XP users will find the alphabetical start menu sorter especially useful.

Schedule Wizard – Set up a schedule to perform system cleanup automatically at a pre-determined time, using predefined settings. Set it and forget it.

Windows Startup Manager – Makes it easy for you to take control of many of the programs that automatically start when you start or reboot your computer.

Program Options Dialog – by default, it is set to automatically create a system restore point each time Zappit is used. Other user controlled options here too!

So Zappit is more than just a junk and garbage files cleaner. It has a lot of useful tools too. And now you can download Zappit free directly from us – no more CNet downloads. If you’re interested in a great system cleaner with a lot of other great features, you’re welcome to read more about and/or download Zappit at . Zappit works on Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 (32bit and 64bit).

      Sorry, but i can’t install “Zappit”. It tells me that the setup files are corrupt and I should get a new copy of the program. What can I do?? thank you, regards Guenther

        Guenther, that is a common problem on the Internet. When you get that message, it simply means that during your download, the Internet ‘hiccupped’ and your file didn’t come through corrently. It’s too bad they give a message that the file is corrupt, because it is not. Just delete the one you downloaded, and try again. You will LOVE Zappit – it’s an excellent program!

        Corrupt files are files you didn’t download completely. It doesn’t mean there’s something wrong with the file.

      Zappit has been downloaded and installed at least 500,000 times without any problems. So if the app is crashing on your computer then something on your computer is making it crash – most likely a firewall or a security program. I can’t tell you why can’t install it, I can only guess. The information you provide here only shows it’s a windows app crash – it doesn’t show what’s making it crash. If you’re using a 3rd-party firewall or Norton or McAfee -that’s where I’d look.

    I agree that CNet has become a pain trying to download anything. I have been using to download these same software and don’t have any problems with them. Give it a try.

    Your Free-Bees are very helpful.Thank you for your help with “Zappit” I don’t know what I did, however today I could install “Zappit” without problem.

    I’ve used Zappit since you first released it. It’s fantastic. I’ve been wanting to download it to my new laptop but didn’t because of CNet’s bundling. Somehow I knew it was just a matter of time before you’d “rescue” and “protect” it from CNet’s nasty clutches. Thanks.

    I was looking for a safe system cleaner for average users like me and hoping to get a free one.I made some research about some well-knowned system cleaners and find them quite sensitive to use.Finally, i saw zappit and there was this safe mode thing i like about-its very ideal for me since i dont know much about complicated computer stuff,and i thinked to myself,what a wonderful feature they’ve put there for me ^^.So i downloaded it.To make the story short,i came to know thundercloud,Infoave,i even made this cloudeight my homepage and i became a fan.
    Thank you and more blessings.
