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)

Since Avast purchased Piriform CCleaner in July 2017, updates and installs cannot be trusted anymore.
Reports of CCleaner updates installing Avast AV ... with default opt-in

CCleaner/Avast are phoning home with user data
At first only PRO could be opted out, but more recently free CC now has opt-out.
Avast have been ducking and weaving with CCleaner since they took over Piriform 10 months ago
Portable CC has also been discontinued :(

What will they get up to next ?
Very disappointing with this very long term favorite being treated as a cash cow by Avast

CC installer used to offer Google Toolbar *opt-in" but Avast have changed that to opt-out or you get their AV and consequences of 2 AVs on your machine.
I can no longer trust Avast/Piriform ...

The end of a dynasty :(

Just use slim installer or portable version from the build page and that's it... https://www.ccleaner.com/ccleaner/builds

I wouldn't touch this with a goddamn 10ft. pole! It's been hacked, and who knows how long the backdoor was there. Also, everyone should know that you DON'T MESS WITH THE REGISTRY!

I don't care if its a well-known program, the registry 'cleaner' deleted at least one of my application registrations before I quickly reverted to my old system using a Macrium Reflect disk image. The last time I used it was a decade before and I remember similiar or worse problems. If the dev can't get this right, what else are they screwing up? No thanks - too risky.

Installs bundled software, keeps showing up poppups, poor cleaning performance, nothing really good about this cleaner.

I've checked around and CCleaner has the best selective Cookie Cleaner (found under Options) of any freeware around.. especially if you use more than one browser. (if you know better, let me know) I've used CCleaner for years upon years. The pleasant layout has always seemed preferable to more utilitarian scattered processes found in Windows & browsers for an all-in-one for clean & uninstall. I didn't run into the same system breaks that other registry cleaners caused, so CCleaner gained my trust. Sometimes though, I do wish for something more lightweight, so I also use some standalone programs like Geek Uninstaller. If you want an even more precise and detailed clean, check out CCEnhancer which integrates with CCleaner and provides even more options.
