The Img Clone Finder is advertised as a useful PC utility that can help users discover and remove identical images from their computers. The application ensures that no duplicate images will be left by comparing the checksums of the files, and it will be removing the ones that occur more than once. While this may sound like a useful feature, the Img Clone Finder has been categorized as a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP), and its publisher appears to be a company that is not known for a great reputation. Saffire Softwares, the company behind the Img Clone Finder, also is responsible for the Advanced Doc Optimizer, a dubious PC optimization utility that anti-virus product vendors describe as a PUP.

The product appears to be free entirely so that users will not be asked to pay to take full advantage of its features. However, online reports and analysis show that the Img Clone Finder may create Registry keys whose purpose is to ensure that some of the program's modules will be started alongside Windows. This might be related to adware activity, and some of the Img Clone Finder's users report that they have seen an excessive number of ads since they installed the Img Clone Finder.

If you are looking to get rid of duplicate images, then we advise you to look for software that is more reliable than the Img Clone Finder. We advise avoiding this program since it has attracted the attention of anti-virus product vendors, and it also appears to be linked to some shady activities which, thankfully, are not corrupted. Removing the Img Clone Finder is a task that can be completed either with the use of specialized security software or through the Windows Control Panel.
