remove junk files and Internet traces CCleaner is a tool to clean your system from temporary and unnecessary files that accumulate over time. This also includes rather thorough cleaning of Internet and PC usage tracks like browser cache, recently used files, web sites visited and more. You can select the items that you want cleaned and also specify cookies that should not be deleted. CCleaner also comes with a registry scanner that scans for invalid references (advanced users) and options to start cleaning automatically or from the command line. Copyright Snapfiles.com

Not what it used to be2 starsby Klatuu Aug 31, 2018 (Read all my 23 reviews)
The new 'tiles' interface on CCleaner is horrible. The older graphics were easier to read, and the results readouts have are not as user friendly as the original version. Now that Avast has bought the company, they force installs of the latest version of CCleaner, which was never necessary in the past. They also install a 'task' in Task Manager that forces this install without permission, AND greatly slwo your boot time as it does it! Avast claims that there weer security issues in the older 5x versions of CCleaner, and that's why you need to update. But there are no issues if you turn off all monitoring, something that is not needed anyway to clean up things. If you can get a hold of the older version 4.19 of CCleaner, do what I do. When Avast needs to update it's software (not virus definitions), uninstall CCleaner 4.19, let Avast update and reboot, Go to Task Manager in Admin Tools and DELETE the Avast Task, then reinstall the original CCleaner. Either that, or deal with the forced installs of CCleaner, or even Avast AntiVirus if you only want CCleaner. Avast need to learn they do not have the right to take over your PC. showReview details
Not happy with new version install package 1 starsby Belatucadrus Dec 16, 2017 (Read all my 14 reviews)
I've been using ccleaner for years it's long been on my list of must have software, cleans the system checks registry, all good stuff. But this latest update crossed the line BIGTIME, downloaded the latest version updated as per usual using customise then things get weird I get popups telling me Windows security has been deactivated then another telling me avast! is my security program. I start thinking "What the Hell" as I neither downloaded nor at any point authorised the installation of avast! Other users on a forum I use have had the same problem. Now I know avast! purchased Piriform and may if they want bundle the two together but as things stand there is no mention of this on the website. I have to admit that when I backtracked and went through the installation slowly it does mention avast! on the opening splash screen which I didn't notice and it comes with install avast! preselected but if you as I did click customise there's no additional mention of it in the install process. This is a sneaky underhanded crappy way of foisting stuff on people and if this is how they plan on doing business I'll be using another piece of software. Many people will be wondering what I'm on about having installed this update with no problem, these are the people with third party anti virus. For these users the splash screen is exactly as normal. If you're using Windows Defender the default setting of the installer is now to overrule your choice of settings and apply their choice. showReview details
Saves time required to keep computer tidy5 starsby DarrinSingleton Jul 16, 2015 (Read all my 5 reviews)
My program of choice for many years. When used together with Eraser, allows keeping computer free of excessive clutter. Default settings of Windows do not really prevent it from getting overburdened with temporary files and the like. For a free piece of software it's amazingly efficient and compact. From my viewpoint it's just too powerful, so pat attention when you confirm cleanup and/or program deletion - to avoid irreversible actions. Good tool. showReview details
