CCleaner

CNET Editors' review

Although it lacks a few of the bells and whistles found in other PC-cleaning applications, this free program offers more than enough features to make it a worthy download. CCleaner's interface is logically designed and makes it easy to wipe away your tracks from Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, and Google Chrome from various Windows system areas, and from some third-party applications.

CCleaner doesn't support the large number of extraneous programs that some competitors do, but it can erase traces from such popular programs as Spybot - Search & Destroy and WinZip. CCleaner now offers secure file erasing along with a Registry-cleaning utility that quickly scans for invalid entries before removing them. CCleaner can even back up your Registry before removal, in case it accidentally removes a crucial component, and the download includes a rudimentary feature for uninstalling any program on your machine.

Since this free application handles the majority of PC-cleaning chores and offers a nice extra, we strongly recommend CCleaner to all users, except those who need robust tools to remove supersensitive data.

    March 28, 2010  |   By gord8166

    Version: CCleaner 2.29.1111

    Pros

    For the most part, it is safe all the time. Good for all uses. Great tool to use when you are in hurry. A program you can count on to, not mess up your computer. I have kept it on my computer for years. And will continue to!!!

    Cons

    Below average cleaning. This is for people that know nothing about computers, as I call them : Computer Babies.
    If you are ready to move up in the computer world, then you need a real cleaner! Comodo System Cleaner is the best, and its 100% Free

    Summary

    This is a list of the cleaning and optimizing tools that I keep on my computer.Everything in my list Is 100% FREE !!!!
    Ccleaner - It is very safe, and good when you are in a hurry!
    Comodo System Cleaner(2010 version)- Does the major cleaning. In Cnet's review, they were so impressed, that they said that they are keeping it on their computers.
    Revo Uninstaller - Just The best free uninstaller on the market !!!
    Auslogics Disk Defrag - Just the best.
    Quicksys RegDefrag - It is just great!!

    With the above list, I think that you will have a great set of cleaning and optimizing tools. That will keep your computer running smoothly. I know they keep my computer running GREAT!! And they are all FREE!!!

    "Couldn't get along with out it."

    March 27, 2010  |   By Cat5012

    Version: CCleaner 2.29.1111

    Pros

    I like that you can do so many operations in one setup. Works great.

    Cons

    I like everything. No cons.

    Summary

    I like this product because my add/remove program was removed from my computer accidentally and I have now I have no list of my programs or way to remove them. CC does this as well as clean up the files. I also like that it takes care of registry issues.
    I couldn't live without it.

    "average software"

    March 26, 2010  |   By jiteshmodi65

    Version: CCleaner 2.29.1111

    Pros

    easy to work

    Cons

    does not cleans fully hard disk or clears registry or unistalls softwares

    Summary

    works 80% of my reqirements as it is easy to work but does not cleans fully hard disk or clear fully registry or uninstalls softwares. One more point to add as a feature - It should work as forcefully delete some undeletable files.

    "I use this program along with my other cleaners."

    March 26, 2010  |   By Chrisw484976

    Version: CCleaner 2.29.1111

    Pros

    Although I use this program to clean my computer, it is probably my least favorite. It has the good point of being simple to use.

    Cons

    I do not think it cleans very well. I have used it and immediately afterwards used another cleaning program which has found a lot of space that I would have thought CCleaner should have got rid of.

    Summary

    It is a part of my cleaning regime but I do not have as much confidence in it as I have in my other cleaning programs. Whether my opinion is technically justified or not, I wouldn't know.

    "Great for uninstalling and general cleanup!"

    March 26, 2010  |   By LearningAddict

    Version: CCleaner 2.29.1111

    Pros

    Everything. Also the windows auto startup is great for those who are not too sure what to turn off. You can disable without deleting and that is good when you are not sure of the process you are disabling. You can turn it back on whenever you like.

    Cons

    Layout could have larger print
