CCleaner Editor's Review

If you’ve used any computer for fairly long time, you might have noticed it gets slower and slower over the time. This process is slow and generally goes unnoticed until your computer gets too sluggish to go unnoticed. This is due to unused registry entries, fragmented disk space, temporary files and unnecessary data in your PC’s Hard Disk. Although Windows has a built-in tool popularly known as Disk Cleanup, more often than not, it fails to deliver desired results. Fortunately, there is a free tool which is basically made for the same purpose with added features. This free tool is CCleaner; let’s look at its usefulness, effectiveness and efficiency.

CCleaner is a free utility that helps in cleaning unnecessary files and garbage registry entries generated by unused applications and sometimes operating system which get accumulated in PC’s Hard Disk over the passage of time. CCleaner is available for almost all versions of Windows and for Macintosh.  It is quite easy to install this software. You just have to hit next three-four times and installation will get completed rather quickly.

CCleaner features an appealing and easy to use tab-based interface means there are separate tabs for different functions.  The first tab basically helps you to clean your Hard Disk by deleting junk files. It is divided into two small tabs, Windows and Applications. Windows tab clears junk files of operating system which the latter option works with the saved files of applications. You can select the stuff you want to remove or not. It is compatible with most of the applications so it clears junk effectively.

Its Registry Cleaner is pretty straightforward to use too. First, you have to scan for invalid registry entries and then it deletes those entries. Fortunately, its registry cleaner is equipped with backup option. Whenever you delete a valid registry option or something goes wrong, you have the privilege to restore it.

CCleaner comes with some extra tools which are really very helpful. These tools are Uninstaller, Startup Manager, System Restore and Drive Wiper. Most helpful tool is drive wiper, because it does not come bundled with Windows. Other three tools are bundled with Windows too and they too are effective.

Positive Points:
  -   Appealing and user friendly interface.
  -   Offers wide variety of tools to optimize computer.

Negative Points:
  -   Does not feature a single button which cleans computer automatically.
  -   No scheduler available for scheduling optimization tasks.

Nowadays, there are many system optimization tools available in the market. CCleaner is another system optimization application which is free but it not loaded with many features. However, it has enough it in to serve its purpose for everyday computing and small problems. It lacks tools like Disk Defragmenter and a few others but it doesn’t cost a penny. It is pretty good tool but if you can afford to spend some bucks, buy an all-in-one tool product which comes bundled with far more tools.
