"CCleaner is a straightforward Mac OS X application that enables you to clean your Mac?s hard disk by deleting unnecessary files.

Quickly clean and optimize your Mac from within an intuitive interface

CCleaner comes with a user-oriented interface that helps you view basic information about your Mac, such as the running OS X, computer model, processor and RAM info. The side panel offers you access to the built-in Cleaner, Tools and Options tab.

Thanks to the Cleaner tool, you can delete Safari?s Internet history and cache along with your download history and all stored cookies. In addition, you can empty the System Trash, Logs and other temporary files. On top of that, you can clear the Internet cache, history, cookies, download history, site preferences and more from other installed Internet browsers.

Analyze, examine and clean your Mac with just a couple of mouse clicks

The great thing about CCleaner?s is that you can first analyze your Mac?s hard disk and view how much disk space you can recover by running the cleaning utility. You can also preview the items that need to be removed before initiating the cleaning process.

By accessing the Tools tab, you can safely uninstall various applications from your Mac or from the Startup list. In addition, you can repair permissions and erase free space to prevent unoauthorized data recovery.

Keep the files you need and remove the items you will never use

What is more, CCleaner can be easily configured to fit your needs via the Options tab. Hence, you can enable the secure deletion option and decide what level of data overwrite you want CCleaner to perform by default.

CCleaner is a user-friendly and very simple to use OS X application that will automatically find all files you no longer need on your Mac.

After finding all garbage files on your system, CCleaner will also allow you to easily get rid of them with a simple click of a button.

Besides cleaning your Mac, CCleaner will also help you protect your online privacy, reclaim your disk space and will make your computer run faster and be more secure.

Here are some key features of "CCleaner":

1.Cleans your Mac's disk
2.Helps you uninstall apps
3.Repairs permissions
4.Erases free space
5.Erases web cookies
You can also create a whitelist for web cookies you want to keep and select the files and folders you which CCleaner to remove every time you initiate the cleaning process. At the same time, you can decide which files and folder you wish CCleaner to exclude from cleaning. You can also decide which languages you want to keep which languages you want to be removed from your Mac."

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have seen this program, and it looks like a way to eliminate some of the backlog of files that are using memory for the "restore file" program. It allows deleting various numbers of the files. My question about it is, does the program work as it seems to do, or are there problems in using it? Any help would be appreciated.

Answer:Has anyone used the Piriform CCleaner

Bleeping Computer DOES NOT recommend the use of registry cleaners/optimizers for several reasons:• Registry cleaners are extremely powerful applications that can damage the registry by using aggressive cleaning routines and cause your computer to become unbootable.The Windows registry is a central repository (database) for storing configuration data, user settings and machine-dependent settings, and options for the operating system. It contains information and settings for all hardware, software, users, and preferences. Whenever a user makes changes to settings, file associations, system policies, or installed software, the changes are reflected and stored in this repository. The registry is a crucial component because it is where Windows "remembers" all this information, how it works together, how Windows boots the system and what files it uses when it does. The registry is also a vulnerable subsystem, in that relatively small changes done incorrectly can render the system inoperable. For a more detailed explanation, read Understanding The Registry.• Not all registry cleaners are created equal. There are a number of them available but they do not all work entirely the same way. Each vendor uses different criteria as to what constitutes a "bad entry". One cleaner may find entries on your system that will not cause problems when removed, another may not find the same entries, and still another may want to remove entries required for a program to...

Question: Piriform ccleaner

Hi Guys

not do?

Answer:Piriform ccleaner

CCleaner is a freeware system optimization, privacy and cleaning tool that removes unused, temporary and junk files from your system to include temporary Internet Files, Cookies, History, etc. Use of the cleaning feature is recommended to delete such files in order to help speed up the scans performed by anti-malware scanning tools. While CCleaner is safe and useful for removing temporary and junk files, I do not recommend using the built-in registry cleaner unless you have a good understanding of the registry. In fact, Bleeping Computer DOES NOT recommend the use of registry cleaners/optimizers for several reasons: Registry cleaners are extremely powerful applications that can damage the registry by using aggressive cleaning routines and cause your computer to become unbootable.The Windows registry is a central repository (database) for storing configuration data, user settings and machine-dependent settings, and options for the operating system.

C Cleaner 1.0.0.0 - new release

Download page:http://www.softpedia.com/get/Tweak/System-Tweak/C-Cleaner.shtml

About:
"C Cleaner is a small, yet useful application that enables you to permanently delete temporary files from your user account folders. The software can detect recently created temporary files and easily remove them. It can display the files in its interface, as they are deleted, as well as render the total number of erased files.

Simplicity in system cleanup

Accessing applications, installing programs or browsing the Internet can cause several temporary files to be created and stored on your computer. The term ?temporary? does not refer to their limited storage on your system, but rather to their usage and purpose. For instance, a temporary file can be created when transferring an item from one location to another.

While they are not necessary anymore, the temporary, or junk, files remain on your computer, in one or several locations, usually in the AppData directory. C Cleaner is designed to thoroughly scan this folder and identify if unnecessary files can be found in it. The file extensions that it searches for include .TMP, .DAT or .INK.

Lightweight application with clear functionality

C Cleaner is a small and lightweight application, with a uncomplicated interface. All you need to do is open it and click the Clean button. The software quickly performs the search and automatically erases the temporary files it identifies. It can display the nam... Read more

With the release of version 4.18.4842, the install of Piriform CCleaner will automatically enable a limited version of active monitoring that's part of the paid version.

If you're like me and don't like having a bunch of running processes, it's simple to disable.

Load the main window, then click Options - Monitoring, then uncheck "Enable system monitoring".

Next, click Advanced, then uncheck "Enable Active Monitoring".

That's it!

Question: Using CCleaner

I know a lot of it is personal preference but there a some of those check boxes I'm a bit wary of (i.e. I dont know what they are), e.g.DNS cache, Wipe Free Space. Any opinions would be welcome.

Generally, if you do not need the space, you will not need to use these options. Some, if not most of these options will clear various caches, logs, uninstallation files, etc.

There isn't a lot of differences between the free and professional version, for me the reason why I bought Ccleaner Pro is the automatic updates without having to manually download the new version.

Question: Ccleaner

Hello,
I've been using CCleaner for several months and find it to be a very unique tool but recently when I click on the; 'Run Cleaner' it starts the process but after about two seconds just terminates itself. I have checked and I am running the latest version. Any Advice?

Thanks

Answer:Ccleaner

One thing that I would suggest is, click "Options" on the left side. Then "Advanced". Then untick "Close program after cleaning". Just to see what it does.

Question: Ccleaner

Has anyone on here used CCleaner? If so, does it work, and what are your thoughts about it. Thanks.Mod Edit: This will be moved to a more appropriate Forum.

Answer:Ccleaner

Hi Socom

CCleaner is fairly well recognised as a useful appn. Every time you push a key on your computer it is recorded somewhere, log files are everywhere you don't normally see. The foregoing may not be strictly accurate but the last time I used CCleaner, I got about 1.6GB extra space on my hard drive so it is worth doing occasionally.

Cheers

Question: CCleaner

Curious to hear other peoples experience with this. I have been using ccleaner and have been very happy with it.

However I have also seen a lot of problems on a wide variety of machines that started at the same time as I started using the registry cleaning portion - am starting to think they are related.

would be interested in other opinions.

Answer:CCleaner

Hello.I also use CCleaner's "Crap" "Cleaner" function. I do not use the registry cleaner and do not plan to either.Also, please be aware that Bleeping Computer staff do not recommend the usage of registry cleaners/tools due to the following facts:Registry tools can cause irreparable damage to your Operating System. This could include making your computer inoperatable.These programs generally only delete "orphaned" or "dead" entries. This merely removes entries that point to files that no longer exist on your computer. Registry entries do not take up a significant amount of hardrive space. The program itself (and its own registry entries) likely occupy relatively more space.The amount of improvement in performance you gain is minimal.This is done, assuming that the major audience here at this board may be inexperienced users and thus a suggested safeguard from our side. If you feel that your have sufficient knowledge to use such tools safely, then you are welcome to keep them.Miekiemoes one of our Malware Staff has blogged about registry cleaners and why they are dangerous over here. It's worth a read.With Regards,Extremeboy

Question: Ccleaner

Hi everyone , this is sort of a question about ccleaner which I have being using for a month or so. I use to use System Mechanic until a friend told me about ccleaner. It seems quite a good program but just latley Ive had a few problems such as missing dll files and the computer just going a bit slow and hanging. Did all the usual stuff but I had to upgrade anyway so I did a format 2 days ago. Everyting went ok, put on my programs and run ccleaner. Did a reboot not long after and could only boot into a black screen.(This happened direvty after runing ccleaner) So my question is im not game to put it back on my computer until someone covinces me its a safe program. (p.s. ive fixed the pc)

Answer:Ccleaner

CCleaner is a powerful tool that is very dangerous for those of us who know just enough to be dangerous!

The default cleaner is safe enough - but using the other tools requires an in-depth knowledge of what's going on inside your system.

Any changes to the registry should be preceded by a backup (which CCleaner will do for you). Any file deletions (other than the default cleaner) should be thoroughly researched before deleting them permanently.

Question: CCleaner o.o

I got CCleaner installed for as long as I can remember lol. Question is that, CCleaner gives options for all or most of the software I got installed, but some stuff I updated to other versions yet it still offers to clean previous version files.

For example:
I had Office 2003 but I got 2007 now, it still gives the option to remove 2003 files...but 2003 isn't installed. Another example is it asks to clean for Nero Burning ROM 9, which is not installed. I may have installed a LONG time ago but quickly moved from it.

Sounds like there might be residual components leftover from the older programs.

Answer:CCleaner

CCleaner deletes registry objects that it deems unnecessary/wasteful/etc.

Sometimes, those registry items may not be "unnecessary", and the deletion of those that are may do odd things to your PC. So, in case something seems not right or downright wrong with your computer after it does a cleaning, it can always restore a backup of your registry to bring any of the deleted items to rectify the problem.

If you're not familiar with the registry (or even if you are) you should probably have it make a backup (just in case).

Question: CCleaner

I've been using this program for some time now, and it has a feature which you can use to scan your registry for issues, and then fix them.

It also allows you to create a backup before going through with the changes. I haven't used this in some time, and that's what I'm getting at. I've been using this feature pretty haphazardly without creating a backup beforehand, and I was wondering how safe this is.

I know messing around with your registry can cause a lot damage, but I was under the impression that with Crap Cleaner, it was relatively safe.

Anyway, I've not encountered any problems as of yet, but nonetheless, I figured it'd be good to at least have some idea of the implications of what I'm doing before I just up and do it without thinking.

So should I be using the backup option more often? Or can I pretty much just delete most of this stuff and not have anything to worry about?
