CCleaner Review :

CCleaner is the most downloaded system cleaning software about 1 billion times. Lets see what are its features and how are the competitors are. The user interface is pretty good and friendly so that a newbie to computer can easily work with it. The performance of deletion of temporary files, cache, cookies and other unwanted junk files is very good. It is fast and doesn’t cause the PC to hang on that is where the developers of piriform has worked upon.


In application tab you can choose the type of files which you want for ex: saved passwords, form information etc.and which you don’t want like internet tracks, cookies etc. The default cleaning is excellent with free version and with pro version there will be always monitoring on the browsers and the cleaning is automatically carried on. The registry cleaner is awesome and deletes most of the unwanted features. Degramention could be there but piriform made that as separate product as ” Defraggler”.


In tools tab piriform has made a little bit easier for users like the uninstall wizard, start up program disable option, browser extension disabling, analyzing of disk for file formats, identifying and deletion of duplicate files and folders etc. But the drive wipe feature is not that much appealing for normal users. The options have some advanced features like settings, exclude folders from CCleaner, save cookies on certain sites, Monitoring , Users. The former two are available only for Pro users which is $24.95.


The task that it does in free version is amazing compared to other competitors like Tuneup Utilities and others. The performance, speed, reliable and trust made CCleaner on top of all PC tuning applications.The Pro versions has certain advanced options like active monitoring, automatic update, control of users etc. This is preferable for home users. Also the price is less compared to its competitors. We recommend you to buy Pro version for home users. For others there is separate business, technical, network and cloud versions. We rate CCleaner 4.5/5.


● User friendly interface.
● Very Fast and reliable.
● The free version is enough for most users.
● No need to clean manually in Pro version.
● The Pro version comes with 14 day trail.

Cons :

● Defragmention not available.
