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 and Mozilla, various Windows system areas, and some third-party applications.

CCleaner doesn't support a large number of extraneous programs as some competitors do, but it can erase traces from such popular programs as Spybot - Search & Destroy and WinZip. Also missing is a secure file shredder, but it makes up for the omission by supplying a Registry-cleaning utility, which 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 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 have no problem recommending CCleaner to all users, except those who need to get rid of supersensitive data.

"LOOKS AFTER YOUR SYSTEM"

August 02, 2007  |  By Vanillaman

 |  Version: CCleaner 1.39.502

Pros

Call off the search. I used to have to do Destructive and Non-Destructive Recoveries of my system on a regular basis, but after getting used to CCleaner, it taught me a lot about how jamming your registry can be so sensitive and cause major problems. Get used to the `Fix Issues' option on this cute baby and you'll be safe overall.

Cons

None. Allow yourself to get familiar with this and you won't look back. It is a MUST have.

"Becareful!!"

August 01, 2007  |  By bijou007

 |  Version: CCleaner 1.39.502

Pros

It works great if you want your hard drive to get cleaned.

Cons

Now this is the big problem with Ccleaner, I just downloaded the latest version of Ccleaner and performed a quick clean. This software erased NTLDR files from Windows XP Home and my comp did not boot up, I had to reinstalled windows and reformatted the hard drive (That what Dell Tech told me to do). At first I wasn't sure this caused by Ccleaner so I reinstalled this software back and perform a quick clean few times and same craps happened. Error massage NTLDR is missing when I tried to boot up my computer.

So what's up with this piece of ****?? It can clean but why damaging or deleting the windows XP files at the same time.
