    "Nice does what it says it does......"

    January 30, 2012  |   By Samuel_Moser

    Version: CCleaner 3.15.1643

    Pros

    cleans the registry, wipes the hard drive free space, unistalls programs and cleans up junk files.

    Cons

    When Windows 7 crashed and Windows Explorer crashed and then recovered during a wipe of the free space of the hard drive when it recovered the green status bar in the CCleaner icon on the taskbar disappeared and took a very long time before it came back.

    Summary

    Nice program.

    "Excellent product, although not for a novice user."

    January 29, 2012  |   By AlwaysGrateful

    Version: CCleaner 3.15.1643

    Pros

    This is a very effective program that runs quickly with a minimum of fuss. The settings are easy to select. Presuming one accepts the opportunity to create a registry backup, one is unlikely to get into serious trouble running the program. It is advisable to browse through all of the menu options before running the cleaner though, as the menu order implies that the cleaner can/should be run before some important decisions re options are made.

    Cons

    The user should have a good understanding of which cookies they need to retain, and the significance of all of the various changes the program will propose to make. Running the program and just relying on the proposed settings may yield some unintended results.

    Summary

    Excellent and effective program when run with some caution and considerable attention to detail. There are no landmines involved - just take your time and think everything through before running the cleaner.

    P.S. - I have not used the drive wiper extensively. When it indicated that a three pass overwrite of the (~50%) free space on a 1TB drive would take over 24 hours I decided not to give the drive that much non-stop use.

    "Definitely works; question is how well"

    January 29, 2012  |   By Joe2496

    Version: CCleaner 3.15.1643

    Pros

    I like this program A LOT. It is easy to use, has a nice interface, and clearly does the job. It also has an uninstalling feature, general cleaning tool, drive wiper (ONLY USE IF YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING!), control over which programs automatically begin at start-up, and a system restore.

    Cons

    After running a general clean and removing registry errors (which I backed up), I scanned my computer with other registry cleaning programs (Iolo System Checkup and Cyber Defender My Clean PC). The amount of registry errors and such definitely did go down, but not too significantly.

    Summary

    Great software, great FREE software, although I am a little concerned over the actual cleaning efficiency.

    Updated on Jul 6, 2012

    In response to my concerns over the lack of functionality:
    1) My Clean PC is a piece of junk and I would never recommend downloading it unless you want a crapload of bloatware and useless, potentially harmful software on your system (not to mention, it's a real pain trying to uninstall it, although I finally figured it out)

    2)I downloaded ccEnhancer (which adds over 270 new functions to CCleaner)

    "It is very clean to use."

    January 29, 2012  |   By skymap72

    Version: CCleaner 3.15.1643

    Pros

    Everything you need, and offers backup solutions to any registry deletions. I has cleared a look of junk off my machine, and up to now are free updates every time.

    Cons

    Dont think there are any... its free.

    Summary

    Over-all a very exceptional machine cleaner. obviously read before you "check" stuff and you can adjust the settings etc.

    "Solid. Quick. Reliable. Effective."

    January 27, 2012  |   By johhnybravo10

    Version: CCleaner 3.15.1643

    Pros

    Very customizable/complex selection of different system components/programs you want to be scanned, analyzed, or cleaned.

    Very quick whilst analyzing and cleaning

    Does NOT slow down my computer while using and multi-tasking

    It is FREE (the paid version DOES NOT HAVE ANY additional program features, however it will give you PRIORITY TECH SUPPORT - if you are using this program, chances are you DON'T NEED tech support.)

    I would recommend DONATING to the developers of this rather than purchasing the "priority support version aka the full version". Donate via paypal whatever amount desired: http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/faq/general/can-i-donate-to-piriform

    Ive been using this program on my piece of junk WIN XP laptop for about a year and it truly works wonders for me in keeping this old machine running smoother. I intend on donating a small chunk of change, perhaps 5-15 bucks.

    Cons

    The WIPE feature for the C:/ drive takes a fairly lengthy time, but then again, so does windows when done from My Computer >> C:/ (right click) >> Properties >> DISK CLEANUP...so I guess it runs like it should...maybe this shouldnt be a "CON" - its just the only thing i dont like about it...but if no way to speed the process up then ill live with it. not a deal breaker.

    Summary

    Get it. Use it regularly. Love it as I do.
