    "Great product but use portable version with caution"

    December 13, 2014  |   By howardferns

    Version: CCleaner Portable 4.19.4867

    Pros

    Not only cleans junk and tracking cookies but also has some other useful tools like uninstaller, startup list, etc.

    Cons

    Do not use this portable version on shared computers!!! I found out the hard way that the cookies of all users on the computer will be lumped to together in this program. They will all be mixed up and you'll have a hell of a job sorting out which to allow, which to exclude.
    I am also guessing that the portable version will retain all cookies from any computer it is used on, i.e. use it on your own machine, it will hold your cookies in the program on your usb stick, use it on someone else's machine and it will add theirs in addition to yours, and so on. I haven't tried this, so I could be wrong.

    Summary

    If you want to use CCleaner on a shared computer, install the standard version on the hard drive. I know from experience that this keeps each user's cookies separate from the others, so when user A runs the cleaner, only that user's cookies are deleted and not those of user B and user C, who have to run it for themselves.

    "It does a quick and thorough cleaning."

    March 8, 2013  |   By swanjame

    Version: CCleaner Portable 3.28.1913

    Pros

    It does a quick and thorough cleaning. It is easy and intuitive to update and run.

    Cons

    It may be the way that I have my files arranged, but the new updates do not pick up my settings for cookies and such. I have to go through and do it manually for every update.

    Summary

    Highly recommended.

    "Great Portable Cleaner!"

    February 4, 2012  |   By silvah

    Version: CCleaner Portable 3.15.1643

    Pros

    Quick, easy to use, and free. Downloads with no hitch and you can remove it easily, although I can't see why you'd want to.

    Cons

    Novice users had better pay attention to what they're doing or they could clear data they want. Other than that, no cons that I've noticed.

    Summary

    Why cash out to buy 'fancy-dancy' programs when this is just as good at cleaning your PC?

    "It does what it's supposed to!"

    October 25, 2011  |   By satyr

    Version: CCleaner Portable 3.11.1550

    Pros

    It's portable, and that's the only Pro I can think of (over the "installation requited" variant of CCleaner).

    Cons

    No cons that I can remember at the moment.

    Summary

    This program works as it's supposed to, though the need for such program in the first place is arguable. Obsolete files won't slow your computer (you'll only get some disk space back, but considering the size of modern hard drives it doesn't matter much), and same goes for the so-called "invalid" registry entries; no matter how many of them accumulate over time they won't slow PC's performance.
