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.

"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.

 |  Version: CCleaner 5.04.5151

Pros

Does what it says it will with a minimum of fuss.

Cons

Those unfamiliar with the program may need to rethink forgetting their passwords because they told their computer to remember them.

Summary

Without question, the best cleaner I have come across in 18 years online.

"Better than Windows Disk cleanup."

March 25, 2015  |  By micsds

Pros

Good tool.
Better than Windows Disk cleanup.

Cons

Some times you can just manually remove all unnecessary files and it's more easier.

"Very Neat, and Tidy, but not "Free""

March 15, 2015  |  By Cyberfool

 |  Version: CCleaner 5.03.5128

Pros

smooth interface, status bar...
impressive list of areas to check and delete stuff.

Cons

I might have cleaned too much...
after installing/using notified of 14 day trial not "Free" as advertised, I know there was a "Free to try" list, but I had deselected that search item.

Summary

I had a recurring error message on startup regarding a missing .DLL dynamic link library file at this point I think it's taken care of, if so I guess I'll delete this ccleaner in 14 days, if not it'll be gone sooner to be replaced by another cleaner, maybe the next one will nail it.

"One Program, Too Many Download Websites"

March 04, 2015  |  By Touchito

 |  Version: CCleaner 5.03.5128

Pros

An excellent program that you can get almost anywhere.

Cons

An excellent program risky to download from anywhere.

Summary

Virus producers surely like popular software to spread their malware, and CCleaner might be one of their favorites, so don't download it from anywhere but from trusted websites. I suggest piriform.com (CCleaner official website) or download.cnet.com

"Great product, Aint what it used to be back in the day"

February 27, 2015  |  By mrobinsonjr

 |  Version: CCleaner 5.03.5128

Pros

Works great, Cleans the computers temp folders better than Windows Disk cleanup.

Cons

1. this Ccleaner professional stuff is crap. Why Piriform why?
Do you have to shove BUY ME NOW into my face?

2. Just like MBAM the parent company Piriform got money hungry. by saying BUY ME NOW FOR 24.95! Why cant it be like it was 7 years ago where you made the program and put it on this website for users to download without any of this buying stuff?

Answer to that would be a DONATE button.

3. The Ccleaner monitoring feature is crap. Uses excessive memory when it shouldn't be in the first place. I think a prompt should be displayed asking the end user if they want the Ccleaner monitoring to be running.

Summary

Great product, but needs to kick the BUY ME NOW habit.
Add a donate button to the website and from within the program.

"Maybe best of class"

February 24, 2015  |  By Mukunda_Yuyutsu

 |  Version: CCleaner 5.03.5128

Pros

Many similar products over promise and under deliver. This is the only "Cleaner" product I would recommend using.,

Cons

In most cases you can just manually delete the files. You don't really need a cleaner product.

Summary

Quick, easy and effective.

"Ok but could be better"

February 16, 2015

 |  Version: CCleaner 5.02.5101

Pros

Seems to clean most things well.

Cons

Doesn't clean 'add file' items 100% of the time. If there's a shell right-click command I don't see it.

Summary

Ok, but not worth paying for.
