Sometimes, Windows users may get annoyed because of the sluggishness of their operating system due to various reasons. One of them is certainly the amount of trash files piling up in your hard drive. You can overcome this problem by using Ccleaner, formerly known as Crap Cleaner, a tool written in C++.

CCleaner helps you to get rid of all those unwanted files from your system. The cleaning involves temporary files, the recycle bin, history files, cookies, auto complete data, and all the navigation history stored about your browsers. This results in low-speed browsing while you are online. CCleaner supports most popular browsers, like Internet Explorer, Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera, and Safari.

The program cleans all those useless or private lists, such as recent documents, search history, run history, and others. It is also capable of clearing up logs from specific applications, such as the Most Recently Used (MRU) lists from Adobe Acrobat, Microsoft Office, Java, Yahoo! toolbar, or QuickTime player’s cache. It even helps advanced users to clear their Prefetch data, IIS Log files, and Hotfix uninstallers.

Finally, we cannot forget the registry, the core of all Windows Operating systems - CCleaner takes care and fixes all unwanted registry entries and ActiveX components with a single click. Together with this, it comes with a handy uninstaller, similar to Windows’ Add/Remove Programs tool, which is even easier to use.

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.
