CCleaner Comments

Safe, fast and very useful

Every one needs this software to clean up Windows! I use it with the standard Windows cleaning tool.

But if you do not know how and what to change in the registry, never use the automatic registry cleaner!
The registry is really important and delicate, even a small mistake and you can compromise the whole operating system stability!

So use Ccleaner to clean junk and temporary files, to manage start up apps, to remove browser plugins but DO NOT clean the Registry!

This one is nice and functional. It's nice to have this to clean up. I kinda like it and been using this for 5 years now. Although I got late on updating sometimes.

Not so safe?

about CCleaner Feb 2017

I don't know about the newest version, but it destroyed my registry few times in the past, the way my system couldn't start. I replaced it with RegCleaner and later with PowerTools Lite 2013, which were free but are both outdated by now.

about CCleaner Jan 2016

Don't get me wrong, the software itself is kind of okay. But I find it highly ironical that the installer installs Big Brother Google Chrome (and sets it as default browser) by default... Plus it must leave tracks somewhere, because when you uninstall CCleaner and then try to reinstall it again, it doesn't ask again to install Chrome... Pretty dirty for a "cleaning" software...

it was best in cleaning registry
but other feature like uninstall or startup entries are totally lack of features
i recommend Advanced system care much better since it offers you features like bulk uninstall, add startup entries,and many other useful features!!!

users of windows 8 or newer, should never clear the registry!
If you try to clean registry, then your boot will slow down.

Bad tool; Does not support clean on shutdown; No Cookie Manager

Negative Comment by pstein
about CCleaner May 2013

This tool is far away from beeing a recommendation.

Just a few important things I miss:

1.) It is not possible to autoclean when I click on START-->Shutdown (only /Shutdown flag which is not sufficient)

2.) Poor Cookie Manager (it is not shown when a cookie was added and last modified; No sort on dates)

3.) Only a few index.dat files were found and wiped

4.) No slackspace is wipeable (only full free sectors)

5.) No log output into file (on demand)

6.) No auto-jump to CookieManager on start is possible

There is a long way to go.....
