CCleaner 4.18.4844

Make your PC as good as new by having junk files removed, broken registries fixed and a lot more tools packed in this handy application
Note to Softpedia users: We typically update this version a few days after the portable edition, because we prefer to wait for the ad-free version to be released, instead of listing the ad-supported edition. If you wish to be notified as soon as a new build is available, we advise you to follow that listing instead of this one. Thank you for understanding!

Your computer is not only at risk from being infected by malicious software, residues left after uninstalling applications and so-called junk files can significantly reduce performance. However, performing periodic scans and cleaning can keep your PC in good shape. One of the applications that can aid in this situation is CCleaner, equipped with all tools needed to scrub every bit of your computer.

Cleverly organized interface

Launching the application brings up a cleverly simple interface, intuitive enough to let anyone instantly accommodate. Major functions are stored in tabs found in a side panel, an upper part constantly displays system info, while the rest of the space is dedicated to actual options you get to handle.

Easily get rid of junk files

The “Cleaner” feature helps you get rid of various files that are no longer of use or take up disk space for no further reason. Two tabs let you select either Windows features or specific applications, each with its own list of areas to be cleaned. Amongst others you are able to select recent documents, autocomplete history, saved passwords, cookies or even old Windows installations.

You can simply analyze an area to see what needs cleaning so that you don't accidentally remove any important files. The scan process, as well as the scrubbing is done incredibly fast, with post-process details displayed.

Have broken registries fixed

Furthermore, you are also able to fix registry issues with the help of a dedicated tool. Similarly to the cleaner, there are several selectable areas, such as missing shared DLLs, ActiveX and Class Issues, obsolete software, start menu ordering or Windows services.

Multiple tools to work with

The application's usability does not end here, because more tools are available under the homonimous tab. An integrated uninstaller lets you safely remove applications so that they leave no traces, startup items can also be deleted, as well as browser add-ons or extensions and even context menu processes.

What's more, system restore points can be viewed in a list, with the possibility to have them removed for a little extra space or comfort. Last but not least, you can choose to wipe an entire drive, be it internal or removable, with the possibility to select either free space or whole drive, as well as the security level.

Using little system resources

Keeping an eye on your system's resources might come as a surprise, because CCleaner only takes advantage of as little as it can. Thus it can run on multiple configurations, not to mention the speed and quality at which it gets the job done.

A few last words

To sum it up, CCleaner is definitely a must for any computer, whether or not it is connected to the Internet. It takes little of your time to get you acquainted with what it has to offer, with light impact on system resources. It can definitely bring back a little power to any computer or even make it as good as new.
