In a world full of registry cleaners and complete computer optimization solutions, few companies share a success story like ZookaWare. Since its foundation in 2004 in Alaska the company has gone through various iterations of its PC optimization solutions, which has led to the company winning some well-deserved prizes and it also turned ZookaWare into a partner of various companies, such as Microsoft, Intel and Amazon Web Services.
To be exact, the reason why ZookaWare started gaining some respect was its very first program, the anti-spyware tool SpyZooka. Since then, this program and its other former product SpeedZooka evolved into what is known today as ZookaWare PC Cleaner, a solution for Windows computers with a very complete set of features, attractive prices and U.S.-based customer support. While you won’t run into any problems having your question answered by the company’s FAQs and guides or its prompt customer service, we’ll answer some questions related to ZookaWare that we often get from readers.
What Is ZookaWare?
ZookaWare is an American company founded in 2004 that develops computer cleaning solutions. Its first program was an anti-spyware tool SpyZooka, which – after many years of development – evolved into ZookaWare PC Cleaner, the program we know today. The software, which is more a computer optimization solution than a plain registry cleaner, is one of our preferred choices for taking care of registry-related issues and other sorts of problems.
How Does ZookaWare Work?
ZookaWare PC Cleaner works just like any other registry cleaner: first it scans the computer for issues after which it provides a list of errors with the added option of fixing them. However, this program does give complete control to its users by letting them edit scanning patterns and choose specifically what to aim for: spyware and unwanted programs, registry errors, Windows files etc. Still, the best and most thorough choice is to allow the program to scan all components.
And just like in the case of scanning, users are free to choose what to fix, not to mention there is always the option to restore previous configurations in case something goes wrong.
Which Errors Does ZookaWare Remove?
ZookaWare PC Cleaner removes all errors related to a computer’s registry like DLLs, ActiveX entries, application paths etc. This includes invalid, duplicate and corrupt files, keys that are left empty after a program is uninstalled, hidden objects, and such. However, the program is not limited to registry components, as it can also free up some space in your storage by taking care of Windows and browsers temporary files. Moreover, the program is capable of eliminating tracking cookies and other spyware methods as well.
During our test it took exactly 2:08 minutes for ZookaWare PC Cleaner to scan and analyze almost 66,000 objects that occupied a total amount of 905MB of our storage. Once the scanning was finished, the most important details of each error, like location, description, total size and more were displayed. Out of the two available options, namely choosing individual errors or wiping everything at once by marking them all automatically, we went with the latter as it’s a method that is even faster than scanning.

Our own experience with the program was pretty smooth devoid of any bumps, it’s safe to say that ZookaWare’s software is worthy of its name. The company itself provided all the necessary feedback when we contacted them via their live support chat to ask them a couple of questions.

How Do I Cancel ZookaWare?
There are two ways to cancel the service: using a link to Avangate MyAccount or contacting the staff directly. The link, which can be found in the email that confirms the purchase of a subscription, should cancel the service automatically.
As for the other option, all contact methods ZookaWare has – email, live chat or the toll-free phone line – can be used to ask for the staff to cancel the subscription. Live chat should be the preferred choice even on Sundays: during our test we received helpful and enthusiastic replies from the company within two minutes after starting the session. However, if you opt for submitting a ticket, make sure to select the billing department in the corresponding area. Also, expect a reply time of up to 24 hours.
How Can I Use ZookaWare for Free?
ZookaWare doesn’t force you to pay for PC Cleaner in advance without letting you try it first. The program can be downloaded free of charge directly from the company’s site, which automatically entitles you to use the free version for as long as you wish, performing as many scans you want. Sadly, this is only how far you can go without paying, as all of the repairing features of the program are blocked in the free version.
However, if you’d like to try the full program but without the need to pay for it, there’s a 60-day refund policy that allows the risk-free use of the program for two months. This not only means that none of the features are blocked, but it also provides the option to ask for the money back a couple days before it ends if you’re not happy with it.
After cancelling the service you should visit the control panel on your computer and uninstall the program like you’d do with any other software. Don’t forget to check and delete the leftovers that can still be lurking around even after uninstalling.
