Alternatives to Ccleaner

Published on

The last few years have been particularly hectic for Ccleaner. First of all, Piriform, the software publisher, was bought by the giant Avast and the evolution of Ccleaner was uncertain at the time. Would the product continue to take care of the users’ computers? There were many criticisms and users expressed their concerns on the web. And to make matters worse, Ccleaner was later involved in a story about a poxed installer. The image of the publisher is no longer as good as it used to be, and you may think it’s time to go and see if there’s a more reliable alternative elsewhere. We have found for you a selection of software that are excellent alternatives to Ccleaner.


Bleachbit is a software that will allow you to delete unnecessary files that clutter your hard disk. You will be able to run an analysis that also includes web browsers to identify which elements you can delete. This mainly includes temporary or large files, trash can contents or caches of some software. Once you have selected the settings of your choice, all you have to do is let the software do its job. Bleachbit offers an interface quite close to Ccleaner and is completely free.
