    I wonder if they ever will dare take it out of Beta? :-) I use it all the time in Linux ~

    Reviewing 0.9.3 Beta (Jun 22, 2012)

    Never had any issues either in Windoze or the Linux version that's also updated.

    Reviewing 0.9.2 Beta 2 (Mar 12, 2012)

    Used without any negative effects. For those who are able to set a restore point, set one before use. If a problem is encountered, go to the restore point and the problem should be solved. That is, if you are able to boot up. Try safe mode first though.

    I like the CC cleaner

  5. 5 out of 5 stars

    Reviewing 0.9.1 Beta (Nov 2, 2011)

    This just keeps getting better and better all the time. I need to run this application first on slow computers that are heavily laden with junk files and privacy trackers in order for CCleaner to work properly. If I don't CCleaner pretty much freezes during analysis.
