Publisher's Description

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.

Attention: Version 5.45 of CCleaner has been removed from its mother site! This version has been the subject of heavy criticism due to its invasive behavior and bad privacy policies.

Piriform has pulled back to version 5.44 and promised to improve on the above issues in future versions. The link to get the version 5.44 back is https://www.ccleaner.com/go/get_ccfree.

Still like this cleaner. Just have to be real careful on update install to opt out of crapware. I also block its access to internet with firewall, and disallow monitoring and autocheck for update. It is kinda slow on Windows 10 bootup cleaning, but overall effective still.

This is nothing but crapware and spyware. If you use this then you will be buying another PC. Stay far away from this garbage as much as you can.

On the paid version they opt you in to share info/analytics with other parties, you have to find to opt out section.Way beyond disgusting, & will never pay for this product again.

Pros: This is still the most terrible program that is out today. It doesn't do what It says It should do It cleans your PC but It also damages your PC so It won't start up at all.

Cons: If you do It will destroy your PC use this program at your own risk.

Bottom Line: This is nothing but crapware and spyware. If you use this then you will be buying another PC. Stay far away from this garbage as much as you can.

Pros: Does a good cleanup job & always has.

Cons: I bought the Pro version & they have the sheer temerity to opt me in, (I had to uncheck boxes to opt out) to share info/analytics with other parties. It was pure chance I saw the new options. This is way beyond decent behaviour on a paid product, I will never pay for it again. Disgusting!

Bottom Line: On the paid version they opt you in to share info/analytics with other parties, you have to find to opt out section.Way beyond disgusting, & will never pay for this product again.

@fredreed - CCleaner was first intoduced around September 2003 & has been downloaded about 1.5 billion times (billion not million) If it (fails) works as you say do you really think it would stil be around?

The next PC this program buggers up will be the first & I have used it from the very beggining. However I would be interested as to which cleanup program(s) you feel are safer/better?

200 Badillion stars!

Anyone who downloads this program is asking for trouble. This is the worst program ever and I recommend that you all stay away from this garbage. There are far better programs out there the this. Downloaders beware.
