CCleaner is an advanced system cleanup utility. It is capable of cleaning up the leftovers of windows applications like Windows Explorer, Internet Explorer, etc. It is not just another cleanup utility; it differs from the rest by the feature rich interface. It is capable of deleting files like cookies & index.dat, which are notorious for storing the personal information. So, it is a must have for the ones who are too much bothered about privacy. Despite being relatively small in size, many other useful system utilities have been integrated into this package. One of the main features to be noted is the inclusion of a registry cleaner. It is a fact that the windows registry is prone to expanding into a lump size, if not maintained and compacted regularly. But messing with the registry is the last thing that any newbie would want to do. So, the registry cleaner must be reliable, that is where CCleaner scores points. It allows the user to backup the changes that he intends to make in registry, so that a rollback is made possible (it is not required most of the time). Moreover, it has a software uninstaller, which could be used to uninstall software. Another notable feature is the startup program manager, which is capable of handling the programs that startup with Windows, thereby acting as a good tune-up utility to increase the performance of PC.

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.
