Editors' Review

+

CCleaner is a free Registry and junk-clearing utility for keeping your system clean and optimized.

Pros

Basic UI: CCleaner's four main features -- Cleaner, Registry, Tools, and Options -- are clearly marked on a vertical tab menu. Initiating a scan and clean is straightforward.

Powerful: CCleaner includes most of the essentials for PC maintenance. It provides tools for clearing your temporary files, cleaning the Registry, and removing unused cookies from your browser. CCleaner also supports 64-bit systems, as well as updated support for popular applications.

Freeware: Upselling and bundling are minimal; CCleaner only offers the option to install Google Chrome, which users can easily opt out of. Compared to many other free programs, CCleaner is the least ad-heavy.

Cons

Registry cleaning: If used incorrectly, CCleaner is capable of doing more harm than good. Always exercise caution when cleaning your Registry -- create a backup before starting cleanup.

Bottom Line

CCleaner is effective at removing junk files and unnecessary temporary Internet files. While using it won't dramatically improve your system performance, it's nevertheless a fine addition to your utility collection.

"I like it, intuitive interface and simple to use"

May 29, 2015  |  By pro_downloader

 |  Version: CCleaner 5.06.5219

Pros

Very nice program. Helps remove files which are no longer needed.

Cons

Upon installing, it offers to install Chrome. I prefer Firefox, so I need to be careful not to install Chrome together with CCleaner.

"Everyone should have this"

April 20, 2015  |  By caribconsult

 |  Version: CCleaner 5.04.5151

Pros

Doesn't put crapware on your computer, or change your browser or modify in any way your existing settings except for the things it finds in various scans. It works as advertised, it will keep the clutter out of your unit, and permit greater control through its access to the startup sequences.. It is NOT anti-malware. Use a separate tool for that.

Cons

None to speak of

Summary

Probably the first tool I turn to when I suspect my computer is acting up.

"This is an excellent and well proven tool"

April 14, 2015  |  By denys7777

 |  Version: CCleaner 5.04.5151

Pros

CC Cleaner has been around for many years and established itself as an excellent tool to clean up your system. It offers a lot of free options and works very well. Very much user friendly.

Cons

The option to clean up empty space on your hard drive has an option of 35 passes which is the best one. However, it takes ages to do it. I also tried the one pass option ans still took a long time.

Summary

CC Cleaner is an excellent tool, has a free option, therefore I thoroughly recommend it, no question about it. The only only downsides are 1. How long it takes to clean up your empty space on your hard drive and, 2. It doesn't give you the possible consequences of deleting certain files.... these files may or may not be important to the good working of your system. I would like to know exactly what I accept for BEFORE CC Cleaner delete them.
