If your computer is starting to run slow and you are short or either time or expertise to do all the different checks needed to clean up all the different places where old or corrupted files could be lurking then this program will do it for you.
The software has been around since 2004, with just a few minor tweaks along the way. This means that it has a pleasingly tried and trusted feel to it. The interface is very simple to use and in less than five minutes you can have it downloaded onto your PC and have any problems cleaned up.
You can get the CCleaner to empty your recycle bin, get rid of temporary files, look for problems on your disk, back up your existing system, choose your computer start up options, let you do a system restore and delete programs you no longer want.
There is a new drive wiping option which gives you various different levels of thoroughness to choose from. You can also now select which cookies you want to keep in your browser and let the software delete the rest of them.
The combination of the CCleaner and a good antivirus program should be good enough to keep your computer clutter free and working as well as possible. Either getting the program to run on start up or building a regular maintenance run into your weekly or monthly schedule will keep things under control and ticking along nicely on your system.
There isn't a lot on here that you can't do on Windows without this program but having it all packed together on a simple little piece of software with a neat interface makes this a great time saver and may take a bit of the fear out of system cleaning for people who are not very experienced with PCs.
