@peterfat111 Where did you hear about IOLO?

Before buying commercial products, have you looked at either Freeware or FOSS, to see if they actually meet your requirements and work as intended?

CCleaner Slim build - CCleaner - Download Builds
Wise Disk Cleaner Portable version - WiseCleaner Downloads - Download Free Disk Cleaner
BleachBit with Winapp2.ini - Clean Your System and Free Disk Space | BleachBit and BleachBit Documentation : Winapp2.ini

@pablozi That's a very good question, once I answered that question for myself, I stopped using all these junk and registry cleaner software.

Be carefull with it,it has borked systems!

Agreed, IMHO it's probably not worth purchasing. PC cleaning software is something I avoid like the plague. Many years ago, maybe 2005, I tried it and found it not worth purchasing, and not even worth it for free. Maybe it's better now, but you can clean your PC for free with built-in Windows cleaner as mentioned by @gery79

I don't think it's bad. However, my impression is that it is not something that you pay for and spend.

Cleaning software is similar to cleaning earwax. It may have some effect, but it doesn't make a dramatic difference.
I use it when I want to change my mood.

What I find most inconsistent is that the cleaning software itself creates things like backups and log files.

Guys, is wise care 356 free worth getting? It doesn't seems to have any "black history" like iobit and iolo.
IDK if its good? The internet says its not bad but I am not sure.
Whether this is a spice of junk or something.
(it also got some other features, like ram cleaner, and startup, and a tray, and a system boost..........

System Mechanic is safe to use and shouldn't cause any problems, but its publisher Iolo has used questionable marketing tactics in the past, as I detail in the following post. As a result, I don't recommend buying it.
If you just want to clean junk files, Wise Disk Cleaner is free and works very well. An excellent paid option is Kerish Doctor.
