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.

"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.

Ccleaner is an optimum software to clean browser history, to eliminate temporary files, cookies and cache. CCleaner has a smart cleaning method also eliminates duplicate files, empty files and empty folders also take up space unnecessarily. Optimum free tool.
