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.

 |  Version: CCleaner 1.41.544

Pros

For the past 3 years, I have been using a registry cleaner. Since Cnet gave good reviews for Ccleaner, I decided to try it. This cleaner cleaned 2 times more than my old registry cleaner! This program is a must for everyone using the internet!

"No need to buy new computer yet !"

October 07, 2007

 |  Version: CCleaner 1.41.544

Pros

My wife complained our computer is getting older and slower and slower ? it took more than 4 minutes to boot up before we can start typing anything. I had to fix it or else buy a new one ! That reminded me about a friend who commented I better buy a new car because my headlights were too dim ! Well, I cant afford a new computer just yet ? so after doing some research, I installed Ccleaner and another utility software. Ccleaner works wonderfully and saved my day ? it takes about a minute and a half now to boot up and there's no more complain about slow computer. It also fixes the registry and uninstall tools. I dont have to buy a new computer yet !
