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.

"Upgrades not "up" but down!"

October 27, 2014  |  By suavelion

 |  Version: CCleaner 4.19.4867

Pros

trial version is good addition. lightweight and efficient.

Cons

newer versions add ccleaner to startup menu. removed and it returned over and over again. don't like or need auto-run feature. finally uninstalled and retro-installed version just prior to addition of auto-run feature.

Summary

once a terrific freeware program. now, going steadily downhill.
find viable substitute instead of this.

"It jams Windows 8.0/8.1 update."

October 26, 2014  |  By azuzarte

 |  Version: CCleaner 4.19.4867

Pros

It clears well, straightforward, does what it says but...

Cons

... but it also messes up with Windows 8.0/8.1 update after registry fixer. On two occasions after installing and running this program I as unable to do further updates on my computer. I had to soft reset it (which uninstalls CCleaner by the way) in order to be able to complete updates. A lot of time wasted... better leave Microsoft / Windows do their own "cleaning"

Summary

It cleans but it also leaves "scratch" marks. Avoid.
