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.

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 I replaced it with RegCleaner and later with PowerTools Lite 2013, which were free but are both outdated by now.

Installs shitware

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

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

hey I was curious, last year I downloaded Ccleaner for an old computer, but recently I just purchased a new laptop, and it is windows 8...What do you suggest as an alternative, if it happens to slow down?

thanks,
JJ

I suggest the new CCleaner with the Pro features, like monitoring browsers. It's really cool app and helps to keep privacy and security in higher standards. Suggestions for your laptop "iobit-uninstaller" to remove unwanted pre installed apps. "Haozip" for rar zip isos and more! The best thing for anything compressed. Jdownloader 2 BETA to download anything you want from the web (BE CAUTIOUS press DECLINE to the software he propose to install during the setup, READ EVERY SINGLE ACCEPT)

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

about CCleaner · ·

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.....
