CCleaner is a must-have free program for keeping your computer clean and free from unnecessary files. It will also simplify other tasks such as deleting log files from the system registry, and managing which files are executed on system startup. The software, developed by Piriform, has just been updated to version 3.27, and comes with substantial improvements.
It’s important to keep your computer clean and organized to optimize its speed and performance. It will free up many megabytes worth of space that is being taken up by unnecessary files. The Windows registry feature and the tool for managing which programs are run on startup work perfectly, and make your computer run as light as possible. These features will also notify you if there is any malware that has infected your machine and bypassed your antivirus/firewall. There are three main features:
Cleaner, which performs a thorough analysis of your system to free up space on your hard drive by deleting temporary browser or system files, files in the Recycle Bin and clipboard, and any other unnecessary file created by other programs you may have installed. The menu options allow you to decide which parts of your computer you want to analyze.
Moreover, the Registry tool carries out a thorough analysis of all the log entries to find routes, extensions or invalid sources, traces of programs that were uninstalled incorrectly, and other unnecessary data. The log file on your computer is a hierarchical database that contains all the system’s configuration settings, as well as the data’s relationship to programs that are used to read the log, so it’s important to keep it in good shape to make sure your computer is working properly.
Lastly, the Tools feature is made up of a series of options that aren’t anything more than an organized view of many features that your computer already has. It allows you to uninstall programs, modify the programs that run on startup, restore the system to a previous state, or format disk drives.
CCleaner is available on Windows and Mac, and its latest version is compatible with more browsers than before. For example, it can now clean the Windows 8 Metro version of Internet Explorer, as well as the latest versions of Firefox and Chrome.
Although the free version comes with all the features, there is also a paid version that comes with some extra benefits and technical support.
