CCleaner is a freeware system optimization, privacy and cleaning tool. It removes unused files from your system - allowing Windows to run faster and freeing up valuable hard disk space. It also cleans traces of your online activities such as your Internet history. Additionally it contains a fully featured registry cleaner. But the best part is that it's fast (normally taking less than a second to run) and contains NO Spyware or Adware.

Did they get rid of the SLIM version under Bulds? He only has 2 options now - Regular and Portable, and I don't want to get the adware junk inclusion stuff.

Takes forever to clean out cookies data in Internet Explorer. Unchecking IE Cookies in options greatly decreases the overall clean time. Being that I personally don't even use IE anymore, don't see why it takes sooooo long each time with IE cookies checked. This started happening, it seems, when v4.x came out. Overall, still the best cleaner.
4 1/2 stars due to the IE Cookies glitch.

Been the best since it's beginning, best used with winapp2, I've tried a few paid for cleaners but none are as good as this.

Nice app. Not sure that I wanna donate yearly though seeing that it is a yearly subscription I'm signing up for.
"- New System and Browser Monitoring (Pro Version)." Not sure what this involves yet, but may be similar to what WinPatrol does. There aren't many reviews yet as the new version just got released today.
This app works very well with CCEnhancer as together they grant you more privacy from prying eyes.
CCleaner is a must have app whether it's free or pro..
Perform Registry Cleaner task with this Registry Cleaner software. For more information visit the url:
I stand correcfed. It IS cleaning the Flash cookies -- it's leaving a "settings" file, which also carries an ".SOL" extension, which I thought was a cookie
How about adding an option to remove FLASH COOKIES?
I haven't used this product in a while and when my PC gets full, I'll use it to clean clean it out.
CCleaner doesn't install ask.com but Yahoo! toolbar. It's recommended that you should install the Slim version.
Not only that, but it tries to install ask.com on your computer! :-O
I hear you! I had to reinstall my OS because I used the registry cleaner! With such small files being installed into the registry, just leave it alone. There is NO WAY that any registry cleaner could possibly know all of the file names that program writers make up and install. BAD IDEA!
Everyone here seems to have lots of love for this program, but today it killed my wife's laptops registry. I think it would of great help if the registry list of "problems" had a collumn with the origin of the file, so you can see if it is a valid entry, or something that really should be deleted. because lets face it, does anyone really know exactly what every dll file does- by name?
How do we make an informed choice on which to delete or not delete?
