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.

"A Gem"

January 19, 2008  |  By mattallen2

 |  Version: CCleaner 2.03.532

Pros

As a software vendor, I see a lot of products. This one is outstanding. I cannot believe it is available free of charge. If you are wondering how they do that, the answer might surprise you.

I believe their business model is a "value-added affiliate." The software is constantly being updated and when you go to their site to download the latest version (which they have made an extremely easy process), you are presented with various third-party offers. What a great idea! We get free software for viewing these offers.

I am very pleased and have never had a problem.

Best regards,

"Safe & Reliable System Cleaner"

January 15, 2008  |  By maxtro71

 |  Version: CCleaner 2.03.532

Pros

This software is fantastic. For those users who would like a system cleaner including a registry cleaner, but are reluctant to take the risk, CCleaner is the way to go. It downloads easy, is very efficient and above all SAFELY removes un-necessary system/registry files. In fact I'd say this is best system cleaners I have ever used. To top it off, it absolutely FREE. Go give it a try.
