"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".

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.

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".

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

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.

From the ccleaner web page:

CCleaner is a freeware system optimization and privacy tool. It removes unused files from your system - allowing Windows to run faster and freeing up valuable hard disk space. It also cleans traces of your online activities such as your Internet history. But the best part is that it's fast (normally taking less that a second to run) and contains NO Spyware or Adware!

If you need a program removed I would use add/remove programs.

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?

hi

I have installed quite lot of programs and deinstalled again, if I don't need on my notebook with WIN 7 prof. 64-bit.
Sometimes an uninstallation process not really 100%, some entries still remain in the registry.
Is it a good idea to clean WIN7 time to time with CCleaner?

Answer:CCleaner?

Upiter of course it is perfectly safe to use just remembering that any cookies you use for sites that you have a password for you keep. If you don't know how to do that post back but generally speaking CCleaner is very good at cleaning the unneeded stuff out.

If you use the reg check in it whatever is thrown up just make sure you save the results to Documents - it will give you that option before fixing them. if things go ape when you tidy the registry you can go back and replace the items from that back up.

Now for the stuff in the registry if you are not sure of doing stuff in there don't go there and in future when uninstalling programs use the Revo uninstaller it delves into the reg entries and will do a much more thorough job of uninstalling any programs by searching out the reg entires.

Question: CCleaner and SSD

I've been reading that it's not good on the SSD's life by using CCleaner's normal and secure delete feature (1 or 7 pass) to clean up temp files, cookies, browsers. Is this a myth? Also what is TRIM, in dummy terms please. Are secure delete and TRIM related?

Question: CCleaner

After a long session to get rid of a rootkit (finally did thanks to Gringo_pr) I was advised to keep CCleaner on my computer. I have obtained a new computer but I have no idea what places I should check mark. Also, do I check mark to have it clean the registry? I need advice on this program. I used to use System Mechanic Pro, but it looked like it was causing my old computer major problems. I remember Grinco_pr saying don't have any program on the computer that will change the registry. Could someone please help advise me on this?
I would be very grateful. Thank you. Nancy9108

Answer:CCleaner

Hi Nancy... The registry option for Ccleaner can be left alone or not advisable to be used no matter how high it is reported to be safe. You can uncheck the following options and leave the other boxes for better browsing experience.Leave this options checkmarked which means the other boxes are not :Internet Explorer and other browsers Temporary Internet FilesIndex.datLast Download ActionWindows ExplorerAll with Checkmarks or defaultSystemEmpty the recycle binTemporary FilesClipboardThe remaining boxes under Application will be checkmarked also or by default.

Question: Ccleaner

I don't know how this has happened, but now when the laptop (Windows 10) is scanned with CCleaner, the results show that it has skipped Microsoft Edge (Cache, History, Cookies, Download History).

How can I reverse this?

(I actually don't even use Edge, I prefer Firefox).
 

Answer:Ccleaner

Make sure everything under Edge is ticked/checked.
If it is and it doesn't work, uninstall CCleaner and re-install it.

Question: ccleaner

Okay so i have mentioned this programe before and i have watched youtube vids on it too but nobody, that i have found, tells you what not to delete. Not wanting my computer to crash or develope other nasties i like to play it safe and therefore what dangers are there in deleting things from this programe? I don't want to delete anything from my favourits section. what items should i leave unticked for complete safety and if i do go wrong how do i rectify the mistake other than do a system restore?

Answer:ccleaner

On my first run I took off all the ticks and ran analyse on one tick at a time. I let it show up what it was finding and if I did not fancy proceeding I unticked and went to next line.This allowed me to see what it was finding and gave me confidence to delete step by step.You can do a backup when dealing with registry with the built in save.Don't clean if you are uncertain but most will tell you CCleaner removes junk and not good stuff.You should always keep a backup. Even if you don't use CCleaner.

Question: Ccleaner

Hello
I was advised to use the section of Ccleaner labeled, Windows and Applications if you use; temp files, history, cookies, urls, autocomplete, recent docs, run, recycle bin and clipboard.
Is this sound advise or should I just perform a disc cleanup?

Answer:Ccleaner

Using CCleaner that way is just fine.

Myself, I don't have the Recycle bin checked. I empty it on my own. It's a personal preference.

If you use ccleaner, just use the cleaner. Do NOT use the registry cleaner. I would never trust anything that attempts to "fix" the registry. Also, Windows 7 defrags itself automatically, so there is no need for a 3rd party defragger.

Question: CCleaner

Does anyone have a professional opinion on CCleaner's registry utility's impact on your average system? I don't like that it removes 'unused' and 'obsolete' items (as the 'usage' can manifest itself pretty much anywhere and I'm afraid it'll break programs).

Answer:CCleaner

While ccleaner's registry applet is relatively benign, it does absolutely NO good. Nor does any other registry "cleaner". There is no such thing as a good registry cleaner, only those that don't do much (if any) harm. The best of them do no damage, while the worst of them will leave your system unusable. But NONE of them do anything useful. Stay away from all registry cleaners.

Answer:CCleaner

Bleeping Computer does not recommend the use of Registry cleaners.Unless you have a specific problem you're trying to correct, it's best to stay out of the Registry.Registry cleaners mark entries as bad, depending on what the software creator "thinks", is bad.That's why no 2 cleaners will find all of the same, "problems".Registry "problems" actually have very little effect, on the overall performance of the operating system.Please see this article:XP Fixes Myth #1: Registry CleanersIf you're not experienced with working in the registry, DO NOT ATTEMPT IT.Improper changes to the registry could render your computer inoperable.If you do insist on using Registry cleaners, ALWAYS backup the registry BEFORE making any changes.Instructions, on how to do that, can be found here:How to back up, edit, and restore the registry(I highly recommend, you make a copy of this article.)

Question: CCleaner help.

I was pointed in the direction in another thread on a different topic to ccleaner. I have since downloaded it and have played with it a bit. I do not know exactly how to use it. I did a scan on the registry and have a huge page full of listings. Is there a way to copy that and post it here? I am scared to have it "clean" the registy files before I know what they are.

Answer:CCleaner help.

Most here will probably tell you not to clean the registry, even with CCleaner, which is held in high regard generally. The chances of it having a measurable effect are minimal and you are taking some risk. But some people have a compulsion to clean stuff.

I've occasionally used the registry cleaner portion and have never had any trouble. But I've never noticed any performance improvement.

If you just can't help yourself and have to use it, do a backup when it offers you the chance.

A guru I know of says he has used it for a decade on the registry with no issues, but he leaves the "unused file extensions" checkbox unchecked.

Suit yourself. I don't think the comments on this forum about not using it persuades many people.

By all accounts, the other part of it--the regular cleaner---is nearly foolproof and many here use it enthusiastically. I am one of those people. I don't notice any performance improvement, but it does save space over time.

Answer:Help With CCleaner

Hello,I'm moving this to the Other Applications forum. That said, I see that you are receiving assistance here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/333339/hijackthis-help/ ; therefore, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a MRT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.From this point on the MRT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.Orange Blossom

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?
