Editors' Review

Over time, downloading files and browsing the Web can take their toll on your PC's performance. That's why periodic cleanings are important to keep your computer running on all cylinders. For that, you need a tool that can scour your hard disks for junk files. CCleaner Portable is just such a program, and it performed without a hitch.

CCleaner's user interface is professional and intuitive. A link to an ample Online Help feature is included, but we were able to jump right in with this program. Four options run down the left side of the window: Cleaner, Registry, Tools, and Options. We started with the Cleaner, which let us check off the Windows and Applications features we wanted to clean. We opted to clean our IE cookies, history, and saved passwords as well as empty our Recycle Bin and Clipboard. On the Application front, we opted to clean our Firefox cookies, cache, and history information as well as various multimedia applications. Clicking the Analyze button revealed any issues. From there on, we were able to click the Run Cleaner button to remove the files. The Registry option acted in much the same way, letting us check off on what we wanted scanned for issues. But tread carefully here if you're not in familiar territory since tampering with the Registry can cause serious problems.

We especially liked the Tools section, which let us uninstall programs and customize our start-up programs as well as manage our System Restore points, making this program truly a one-stop shop. CCleaner Portable comes as a ZIP file. Since it's a portable application, it requires no installation but runs when it's clicked. And what's more, it's small enough to save on a USB to take with you wherever you go. We highly recommend this program for all users.

"Great tool"

August 01, 2011  |  By fred64ha

 |  Version: CCleaner Portable 3.09.1493

Pros

One of the really good junk cleaners and its free.

Cons

Beware,Ccleaner is aggressive, novice users could delete stuff they should not. Heck I've even done it. Sometimes, especially with registry entries, a problem may not surface for days or weeks. So, hang on to the backups.

Summary

cleans out the stuff that accumulates on your PC to slow it down.
