Editors' Review

+

CCleaner is a free Registry and junk-clearing utility for keeping your system clean and optimized.

Pros

Basic UI: CCleaner's four main features -- Cleaner, Registry, Tools, and Options -- are clearly marked on a vertical tab menu. Initiating a scan and clean is straightforward.

Powerful: CCleaner includes most of the essentials for PC maintenance. It provides tools for clearing your temporary files, cleaning the Registry, and removing unused cookies from your browser. CCleaner also supports 64-bit systems, as well as updated support for popular applications.

Freeware: Upselling and bundling are minimal; CCleaner only offers the option to install Google Chrome, which users can easily opt out of. Compared to many other free programs, CCleaner is the least ad-heavy.

Cons

Registry cleaning: If used incorrectly, CCleaner is capable of doing more harm than good. Always exercise caution when cleaning your Registry -- create a backup before starting cleanup.

Bottom Line

CCleaner is effective at removing junk files and unnecessary temporary Internet files. While using it won't dramatically improve your system performance, it's nevertheless a fine addition to your utility collection.

"Made my Windows a bit faster but .."

August 21, 2015  |  By DrAndyWang

 |  Version: CCleaner 5.08.5308

Pros

It enhanced the performance of WIndows somewhat, however I also wanted to scan, detect and clean unwanted P0RN files which it did not do and for that I used another software from http://www.pornterminator.com

Cons

None to mention

"seems to work pretty well, but ADWARE = BAD"

August 09, 2015  |  By ralph_desmond

 |  Version: CCleaner 5.08.5308

Pros

It seems to work pretty well. From what I can tell it sped up my windows OS a little bit

Cons

ADWARE = NO! I will be writing to ask for a refund because satisfaction is guarenteed and I'm not satisfied. Windows keep opening in the background, sometimes two at a time, and most of them contain VIDEOS! so sound just starts playing. This aspect is the opposite of cleaning my computer. I paid $30. There should be no advertising, ESPECIALLY not sneaky adware that pops up on my computer when I'm not even currently using their product. Boo. This is bad.

Summary

works ok, but bad, invasive Ad-Ware is a deal-breaker. I will be uninstalling and getting my money back.

"I like it, intuitive interface and simple to use"

May 29, 2015  |  By pro_downloader

 |  Version: CCleaner 5.06.5219

Pros

Very nice program. Helps remove files which are no longer needed.

Cons

Upon installing, it offers to install Chrome. I prefer Firefox, so I need to be careful not to install Chrome together with CCleaner.
