    "safest product for this kinda stuff"

    November 9, 2014  |   By ChoiceVoice

    Version: CCleaner 4.19.4867

    Pros

    -safe to use. gives a good cleaning.
    -registry scanner has never caused any problems with any of my machines over the last decade.
    -registry restore works perfectly.
    -has built in uninstaller (so works like revo, uninstall and then use it to do a registry scan for leftovers).
    -easy to use
    -good company
    -expandable to be more comprehensive (google it)
    -portable version available

    Cons

    -i'm hearing its adding a startup by other reviewers (i hate that). i use the portable version, and it doesn't. otherwise, just remove startup in settings and turn off scheduled scan. or use winpatrol to change it and monitor it.
    -reg scan could dig deeper (but then it wouldn't be as safe). use this for maintenance, and use wise registry cleaner for a deeper/occational peek.

    Summary

    excellent product. always has been and continues to be.

    "Great program except the mis-leading pop-up notice"

    November 9, 2014  |   By moodlebrook

    Version: CCleaner 4.19.4867

    Pros

    This program has been with me for years and has helped me to get rid of unwanted un-dead space.

    Cons

    Other, more comprehensive programs will do about the same for you

    Summary

    It does what it promises really well; however, depending on what other software you run, it might not be really necessary for you. If you want to make sure you're not wasting that disk space (more important now since I went SSD) CCleaner is well-worth the space it takes. The nag pop-ups in the latest free version are a serious turn-off, though and it might make me reconsider my position.

    Pros

    "Upgrades not "up" but down!"

    October 27, 2014  |   By suavelion

    Version: CCleaner 4.19.4867

    Pros

    trial version is good addition. lightweight and efficient.

    Cons

    newer versions add ccleaner to startup menu. removed and it returned over and over again. don't like or need auto-run feature. finally uninstalled and retro-installed version just prior to addition of auto-run feature.

    Summary

    once a terrific freeware program. now, going steadily downhill.
    find viable substitute instead of this.

    "It jams Windows 8.0/8.1 update."

    October 26, 2014  |   By azuzarte

    Version: CCleaner 4.19.4867

    Pros

    It clears well, straightforward, does what it says but...

    Cons

    ... but it also messes up with Windows 8.0/8.1 update after registry fixer. On two occasions after installing and running this program I as unable to do further updates on my computer. I had to soft reset it (which uninstalls CCleaner by the way) in order to be able to complete updates. A lot of time wasted... better leave Microsoft / Windows do their own "cleaning"

    Summary

    It cleans but it also leaves "scratch" marks. Avoid.
