Although CCleaner is not perfect, I find it to be a very useful tool when it comes to making more room on your hard drive within short time. It also has a Registry Integrity tool, Uninstall and Startup.

On the Cleaner tab, you can determine which files you want to delete and which ones you want to keep. You can also add custom files and folders to delete, making it a really easy task to keep your system in shape. You wouldn't believe how much space your Internet temporary files take! With its first run, CCleaner recovered over 400 Mbs on my computer. This is definitively a tool I will use very very often.

The Registry Integrity tool will scan your registry for problems and fix them. You can also choose what you want to include or exclude in the scan. It has happened to me that it marked for deletion entries that were actually right, so, personally, I don't trust the Registry tool very much.

You also have a couple of extra tools: the Uninstaller, that lets you uninstall programs from your computer (the program list loads faster than the 'Add/Remove Programs' tool from your PC's Control Panel). And finally, the Startup tool, where you can select and remove items that load when Windows starts, letting you have more control over your PC.

In the Settings tab, you will find some useful things like what cookies you want to delete, what custom files and folders you want to include or exclude, and also the type of deletion (normal or secure). You can save these settings to the .INI file to make sure CCleaner will delete what YOU want every time.

Have full version, very good product! Could have more features for system optimisation though, like offering a driver update package (like it gives recuva e.g separately), though it is excellent for what it does.

Bjorn I, no way on using CCleaner to update drivers. I did that two years ago (in 2021) on a laptop with Windows 10 and one of the driver updates through the program caused BSOD. Being I was not doing driver updates individually myself, I never could figure out which driver update in particular caused it but it took me all weekend to even get to the point where I could even reinstall the OS because Windows 10 required administrator and WiFi access. But the WiFi was knocked out so I could not sign in and verify my credentials. It's a miracle the laptop did not need professional repair. I steer clear of ever even clicking driver update on newer versions of CCleaner. In fact, after what happened I prefer using older versions now before it was a feature. I would just like to see it removed entirely after this experience. Otherwise, CCleaner is an excellent program.
