GFC Genesys File Cleaner is a Windows based application designed to simply maintain your computer on a daily basis the idea is to help your computer run at a optimal performance by carrying out basic clean up tasks on start up of the computer or shutdown of the computer without the users interacting with the product unless they really need too. There is a lot of functionality inside the tool but that is for the user to explore, most people in this day and age just want to click a button and its all done!! And that is also the idea for the way I have developed the application to run so you get the best of both worlds.
Genesys functions and tasks below
The main interface for the express part of Genesys is shown left and this contains a timer which you can pause by pressing PAUSE TIMER, this will pause the timer if you have forgot something and you have issued a shutdown or reset and it gives you the change to do last minute changes.
By using this icon you have the choice of the online and the built in wizard help pages.
Minimize to Task bar icon
Clicking on this launches the options to Minimize the application to the desktop as a task bar icon which is controlled by menu.
BREAK DOWN OF SYSTEM ICONS FOR GENESYS
Advanced Users interface

Run once per day
You can choose to run the clean up only once per day this means that even if you reset the computer Genesys will only clean up Windows once unless you choose to force a clean.
