NOTE: Recent press about CCleaner indicates it may represent a privacy concern.CCleaner is a feature-rich system optimization and privacy tool. The program cleans unused, temporary and log files from your system, as well as traces of online activities such as Internet history and flash cookies. The program contains startup controls for Windows, major internet browsers and context menu entries. Includes a separate registry cleaner, duplicate search, system restore tool and can wipe both deleted files and drive free space for security.A 64-bit version is available (within the folder). Monitoring functions are only available in the pro version.Additional cleaner rules can be using an unofficial set of community-developed set. It should be noted that many of these rules are alpha and the developers will not provide support for these rules, a thread in the users forum is dedicated to supporting the add-on rules.Alternatively, ccPortable is also available.
Not sure if it's just me but the link to download CCleaner bounces me from page to page on the Piriform site. Pressing the \"download\" buttons takes me to a different page. Even when I got to the download page that gave me the option to download the portable version that button just redirected me to another page. At some point it takes me back to the original page it redirected from but when I click to download it offers the installable version and not the portable version. Any way to bypass all the redirects (assuming I'm not the only one having this problem.\"
hamasaki: If you have any adblockers or custom referral string stuff set in your browser, it could be interfering. I think there are certain protections on that page and server to prevent direct downloads from other sites.
At least one problem remains in the latest version - V3.20.1750. If you COPY either your SendTo menu or your Program Files menu (or any part of it) to a TEMP folder and then delete the copy from there to the Recycle.Bin, CCleaner will delete the folder contents (the *.lnk files) but not those folders themselves. Looking in Windows Explorer, it APPEARS that CCleaner deleted them, but viewing them through a superior file manager such as XYplorer, or better yet from the Command Line, you will see those folders still exist.
Sad update on the cleaning capabilities of CCleaner.Yesterday I was triumphant, because I had the impression that CCleaner had cleaned my computer from persistent cookies.That was based on a test on Youtube immediately after running CCleaner: the videos I watched last Fall had at last disappeared from the right pane. But today, the cookies have hadenough time to be resurrected, either from a steganographic code in a png file or from a marketing firm that is keeping track of what I am doing on my computer.CCleaner cleans some of the cookies, but to be efficient a cleaning tool should be able to clean the THIRTEEN locations where persistent cookies can be stored ( ), otherwise the cookies are re-spawned.
Good portable, but which of the lang files (which isn't English) can be deleted The language files are all labelled 'lang-1025.dll, lang-1026.dll' etc. Could save 900 KB by removing the unused ones. Cheers.
Sorry, I erred on my last comment. Prior to the latest releases, CCleaner failed to delete the index.dat file on Vista at bootup - not the Recycle Bin. As j_sk wrote, it has always worked on the Recycle Bin. Now the index.dat file is also erased beyond recovery at bootup.
The latest release of CCleaner - 2.03.532 - seems to have corrected the Recycle Bin wiping issue that was in previous versions running on Vista. If you have not tried this little gem, you are really missing something. Especially if you have enough computer knowledge to edit the winapp2.ini file and make it to what YOU want it to. THANKS for a fantastic tool ! ! !
execellant file cleaning, been using it since it first came out, you can make it even smaller in size by deleting all the lang-xxxx.dll files that is if you only need english (looses about 678 kb's.), otherwise might wanna look into language codes and keep the one you need if still you want to decrease the size.
CCleaner now wipes file names, but unfortunately it does not wipe files in the Recycle Bin. I deleted a file to the recycle bin, ran CCleaner and was able to recover the file and it was 'good as new.' CCleaner does seem to wipe files from folders, as it should. Other than this 'serious flaw', CCleaner is one fantastic utility.
CCleaner Professional with Serial Key removes the cookie, unused data, and many temporary files that slow down our operating system. This action also free space in the hard disk and allow you to save more useful data. Removing unwanted data does not mean that now you have more space only for saving data, but it also means that removing unwanted files keeps you anonymous, and you can search quickly and without fear of identity theft.
One can clear all of the systems from any trash, temp, or broken registry files with just one click. All these cleaning features increase the security and speed of your PC. Moreover, the CCleaner program offers a lot of services. Which are classified into four significant groups in the UI layout These are cleaner, settings, registry, and tools. We can choose any of them according to our preferred operation. Also, it allows us to select window components for cleaning.
Concerning the registry cleanup feature, CCleaner Pro, like other registry cleaners, is primarily concerned with removing entries in the Windows registry that refer to files, programs, or other resources that no longer exist.
The app can gather information on your machine, while offering the option speed it up and free additional storage space by cleaning temporary Internet files and cache, along with temporary system files and Windows registry.
One can use this tool only for performing an analysis of your PC to determine the amount of free space created through removing said unwanted files, or we can run the cleaner right away, as the app will still inform us of what has been removed. 59ce067264
