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.

"Fast Easy Great Program!"

September 23, 2008  |  By teews06

 |  Version: CCleaner 2.04.543

Pros

This program does what I usually have to do manually, only Ccleaner does it faster easier and better! Thanks!

Cons

I've used this program for almost a year with absolutely no problems whatsoever!

Summary

It has 4 parts, cleans out all my browser traces, history,temp files even empties the recycle bin! It checks the registry and removes unneeded errors safely! I like this program it is a good product!

"Appears to do everything it says it'll do"

February 25, 2008  |  By Andido

 |  Version: CCleaner 2.04.543

Pros

It shows what it is getting rid of and how much space it will free up. It's amazing how much crap accumulates on your PC. The registry cleaner does a good job but I don't have a benchmark to compare it to other programs. The software is truly free, doesn't nag or pitch other products. I've run it on four PCs without problems.

"It simply works."

February 23, 2008  |  By nbmc

 |  Version: CCleaner 2.04.543

Pros

It requires you to pay attention to your settings and not delete anything you want to keep. So it's not idiot proof, but once get it set-up correctly it does the job very well. I'm very pleased with this software. I use it on my computer and Mom and Dads. I do not let them use the software, they are not computer savy. That's why I gave 4 and not 5 stars. It's not for those who are not computer savy. There is not any software of this type that is, that I know of...

"Amazing Software"

February 22, 2008  |  By gtchamp7

 |  Version: CCleaner 2.04.543

Pros

This is by far one of the greatest (if not the greatest) piece of software I have every downloaded! My computer would constanly, out of nowhere, give me the blue screen of death and i would be forced to restart. Sometimes this would occur 4 times a day! When I ran CCleaner it cleared out 1.5 GB of old data left over from programs that have been gone from my computer for over 2 years and it cleaned out over 7000 old regestry entries in a little over 1 minute. My computer now starts up and shuts down much faster and runs much more efficiently; all thanks to CCleaner. Also, its start-up program manager has cleared out about 15 programs that I do not use that would have been started at the boot-up of Windows.

Cons

I have found no flaws in this software so far
