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.

"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.

"Can't get rid of this damn software"

March 08, 2016  |  By snakepudding

2016-03-08 17:56:55  |  By snakepudding

 |  Version: CCleaner 5.15.5513

Pros

It appeared from nowhere without a charge and it was protected from deletion.

Cons

Didn't want it but was downloaded with another program. Manually deleted files but missed something and it kept coming back asking to reinstall. Followed directions from a number of sites but nothing worked (Windows 7) so I performed a search for ccleaner under Explore and 3 files were found that started with C but the remainder was cryptic. Deleted the 3 files but one was protected so had to delete as administrator. If this program was so good why did they hide files and restrict deletion. Read the reviews at other sites before you install this blood-sucking program.

Summary

Did I say I hate this intrusive software?

"Use it on all the computers I touch."

January 28, 2016  |  By DIY PC Tech

2016-01-28 09:40:06  |  By DIY PC Tech

 |  Version: CCleaner 5.14.5493

Pros

The software is really handy when you want to clean out the junk files from your computer. The disk cleaner itself offers a lot of options for what you want to delete or not (i.e. temp files, cookies, recent documents). The registry cleaner gets rid of unused file extensions and allows you to backup your registry, just in case something goes wrong during cleaning.

Cons

The only problem I have with the software is that it doesn't have a built-in updater. Every time a new version is released you have to go to the website and re-download it and install. Its hard to find problems with a useful program that is free.
