CCleaner is a free system optimization software, a cleaning and privacy tool. It removes unused files from your system – allowing Windows to run faster and free up valuable disk space.
One of the best optimization software
CCleaner also cleans up traces of your online activities such as Internet history. In addition, it includes a cleaner for the registry. But the best part is that it is fast (usually in less than a second to run a scan, a minute at most to finish it) and contains no spyware or adware! Which would be the worst thing, since Piriform, CCleaner’s editor, has been bought by the antivirus editor Avast!
The main features of CCleaner are:
- Deleting unnecessary files that slow down your computer
- Detecting and cleaning your registry
- Optimization of your computer’s startup by disabling software that is not required
- Deleting your browser history and cookies
And some more. But let’s look at some other features:
The application uninstaller
The Windows application manager allows you to manage the default software, but also to indicate a shortcut to uninstall all software. Unfortunately, this uninstallation is not always possible, as some programs block all attempts and uninstallations cannot be accumulated. CCleaner offers a tool that advantageously replaces this default manager, and eliminates any recalcitrant software by killing persistent processes.
Can’t find the Windows 10 boot manager? It’s normal, he’s gone! Indeed, it is now necessary to go through the task manager. CCleaner displays in a menu all the software that starts at startup and offers you an option to disable them. This will save you time when you turn on the computer and Windows takes too long to launch.
Cleaning cookies and unnecessary files
Handle with care! Indeed, if getting rid of cookies, which are more and more numerous to invite themselves into our system folders (and despite the RGPD) is desirable, some files contain very practical connection information on a daily basis. The same applies to some temporary, duplicate or unnecessary files. If CCleaner suggests you delete everything, do not hesitate to use the function that allows you to sort, both in folders and in relation to applications. For example, clean only Chrome cookies, temporary Internet Explorer files….
Cleaning the registry
This is not very useful, but if you want to have a clean registry is tidy, use this feature of CCleaner. Be sure to back up before cleaning to be able to recover a functional system in case of problems.
A free version
CCleaner comes in several versions: A free version for unlimited use of the tool and its main features, and paid versions including other options, such as recovery of deleted files, a defragmenter and an update and system monitoring utility.
