    "One Program, Too Many Download Websites"

    March 4, 2015  |   By Touchito

    Version: CCleaner 5.03.5128

    Pros

    An excellent program that you can get almost anywhere.

    Cons

    An excellent program risky to download from anywhere.

    Summary

    Virus producers surely like popular software to spread their malware, and CCleaner might be one of their favorites, so don't download it from anywhere but from trusted websites. I suggest piriform.com (CCleaner official website) or download.cnet.com

    "Great product, Aint what it used to be back in the day"

    February 27, 2015  |   By mrobinsonjr

    Version: CCleaner 5.03.5128

    Pros

    Works great, Cleans the computers temp folders better than Windows Disk cleanup.

    Cons

    1. this Ccleaner professional stuff is crap. Why Piriform why?
    Do you have to shove BUY ME NOW into my face?

    2. Just like MBAM the parent company Piriform got money hungry. by saying BUY ME NOW FOR 24.95! Why cant it be like it was 7 years ago where you made the program and put it on this website for users to download without any of this buying stuff?

    Answer to that would be a DONATE button.

    3. The Ccleaner monitoring feature is crap. Uses excessive memory when it shouldn't be in the first place. I think a prompt should be displayed asking the end user if they want the Ccleaner monitoring to be running.

    Summary

    Great product, but needs to kick the BUY ME NOW habit.
    Add a donate button to the website and from within the program.

    "Maybe best of class"

    February 24, 2015  |   By Mukunda_Yuyutsu

    Version: CCleaner 5.03.5128

    Pros

    Many similar products over promise and under deliver. This is the only "Cleaner" product I would recommend using.,

    Cons

    In most cases you can just manually delete the files. You don't really need a cleaner product.

    Summary

    Quick, easy and effective.

    "Ok but could be better"

    February 16, 2015  |  

    Version: CCleaner 5.02.5101

    Pros

    Seems to clean most things well.

    Cons

    Doesn't clean 'add file' items 100% of the time. If there's a shell right-click command I don't see it.

    Summary

    Ok, but not worth paying for.

    "Keeps adding itself to startup"

    February 2, 2015  |   By dexteriot

    Version: CCleaner 5.02.5101

    Pros

    free and used to be good, still can be good if doesnt add itself to startup.

    Cons

    keeps adding itself to startup. you open ccleaner and you see it in startups and clear it. then open again and its there. impossible to remove. good thing is that made me look for alternatives.

    January 30, 2015  |   By freddie_dude

    Version: CCleaner 5.02.5101

    Pros

    Does what is says - cleans out the mess and junk on your PC

    A lot of features and options

    Cons

    None actually. This is a great software.

    Summary

    Go for it!! Ultimate cleaning app for your PC and not like the other utilities out there that promises many things but delivers none ultimately.

    "Not Usable for Netbooks"

    January 27, 2015  |   By Wijono

    Version: CCleaner 5.02.5101

    Pros

    Used to be one of the greatest cleaning applications.

    Cons

    Not usable for the screen resolution of 1024x600.

    Summary

    Ccleaner used to be one of the greatest 5 stars cleaning application.
    Not anymore though since version 5.00 for the netbook users with screen resolution of 1024x600, especially those older people that use large size (120 dpi) settings, this group of users are practically left out, as the lower part of the screen, where the "Analyze" and "Run Cleaner" are, is invisible (truncated), hence cannot use Ccleaner. It is really pity.

    "SOMETIMES SOFTWARE DEVELOPERS GO OVERBOARD"

    January 7, 2015  |   By Lynzaad1

    Version: CCleaner 5.01.5075

    Pros

    Same background engine

    Cons

    In developing software to control the PC for the user, software developers sometime wants to make decisions for the user which is not always convenient in particular circumstances. This particularly relevant to security software. For example CCleaner 5 is very quick in cleaning up your history - very inconvenient when one requires the history during a project. The motto for security software developers should be "to assist the user by providing him/her the tools required and not controlling the user".

    Summary

    A nice program, but it's gone overboard. I'm now in search of a new product.

    "Works as stated!"

    December 29, 2014  |   By oadon

    Version: CCleaner 5.01.5075

    Pros

    Seems to work as good as previous versions. I don't know if it works but it does clean out all the cookies, etc. on my computers. I use it on windows 7 and 8.1

    Cons

    None that I have experienced

    Summary

    I would recommend this program to a friend
