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.

"Need a cleaning"

July 22, 2016  |  By senosen

2016-07-22 21:38:10  |  By senosen

 |  Version: CCleaner 5.20.5668

Pros

Does not leave debris upon uninstall.

Cons

This version needs some cleaning in its own house. Does not detect - clean Edge or Firefox...(!) Downloaded from CNET and from the site, unistalled and installed 3 times - yes I know it must be my own fault

Summary

First time in many years that I see such a bad version.

Updated on Jul 22, 2016

I decided to spend some time with this and found that the upgrade did not install over the last version and so when unistalled the old version was left over... Had to go to the Piriform folder and ran the older version unistaller from there. Reinstalled and now detects Edge and Firefox but I lost my confidence in it so will skip it for some time and use native Windows utillities intead,

"Great free app!"

May 12, 2016  |  By ienefra

2016-05-12 11:34:29  |  By ienefra

 |  Version: CCleaner 5.17.5590

Pros

- Easy to use

- Good, simple/clean UI

- Has the potential to free up a lot of space on your machine and make things run much faster

- Free!

Cons

- Has the potential to delete files you actually need to keep (but this can be avoided if you review before deleting)

- Defaults to adding desktop and start menu shortcuts, which I personally find annoying, but is useful for some (and you can un-check these options before installing, if you prefer)

Summary

I love CCleaner and use it fairly often (and have done so for several years now). It's quick, easy, and the right price (free!). Overall, a great, simple, and reliable utility.
