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.

"SOMETIMES SOFTWARE DEVELOPERS GO OVERBOARD"

January 07, 2015  |  By Lynzaad1

 |  Version: CCleaner 5.01.5075

Pros

Same background engine

Cons

In developing software to control the PC for the user, software developers sometime wants to make decisions for the user which is not always convenient in particular circumstances. This particularly relevant to security software. For example CCleaner 5 is very quick in cleaning up your history - very inconvenient when one requires the history during a project. The motto for security software developers should be "to assist the user by providing him/her the tools required and not controlling the user".

Summary

A nice program, but it's gone overboard. I'm now in search of a new product.

"Drive Wiper Does Not Work!"

December 26, 2014  |  By pipelips

 |  Version: CCleaner 5.01.5075

Pros

None that I can tell.

Cons

Drive wiper does not work. I wiped the free space on my pc hard drive then ran a file recovery program on the "free space." The recovery program found 64,000 files. I ran CCleaner a second time, then the file recovery program a second time and got the same results.

Summary

This program does not do what it's supposed to do.
