CCleaner is one of the most powerful
computer cleaners around; and best of all, it is free, multilingual,
and completely customizable. This utility gives us the opportunity to
delete all the useless and obsolete data that we may be keeping in our
system. This program can optimize the system performance by analyzing
and deleting any or all of the following items: temporary files,
cookies, browsing history, addresses of recently visited websites,
index.dat files, and other items from our Internet Explorer, Mozilla
Firefox, and Opera browsers.
With CCleaner we can also check and
remove useless items from our applications, Internet add-ons,
multimedia programs, utilities, Windows Explorer, and system itself.
There are some advanced options (old prefetch data, user assist
history, etc.), which can also be applied to the analyzing/cleaning
process. It is also possible to scan and clean our Windows Registry,
uninstall programs, manage our Windows startup, restore system to a
previous point, change the user interface language, delete/keep
cookies, include/exclude specific files, folders, and registry entries,
and much more. The graphical user interface is quite smart and
In the version 2.2 we can take advantage of the
right-clicking on any item to view contextual information, or,
depending on the location of the selected item, open different shortcut
options. Now, it is also possible to set the program's language to
Estonian and Farsi.
