Desaster. It broke my Windows system beyond repair. Several programs won't start anymore. Office and Windows lost their service packs. Updates fail, same with restore points. Error messages all over the place.

CCleaner is a feature-rich system optimization and privacy tool.

The program contains startup controls for Windows, major internet browsers, and context menu entries. Includes a separate registry cleaner, duplicate search, system restore tool, and can wipe both deleted files and drive free space for security.

A 64-bit version is available (within the folder). Monitoring functions are only available in the pro version.

An unofficial set of community developed cleaning rules can be found here however it should be noted that many of these rules are alpha and the developers will not provide support for these rules, a thread in the users forum is dedicated to supporting the add-on rules.

Hi,
One more time, it's impossible to download Portable version. We are pulsed from page to page and finally landed on the original one.

IanFromBarrie on 2016-07-20 15:57

Same experience as @Guido76 at 11:45AM EST. Looking back over the comments, it seems that Piriform has got web platform problems. Hope that sort of sloppiness doesn't carry over into the actual product.

PureRa v1.7

I am Baas on 24 Sep 2013

PureRa removes files from your computer that other mainstream cleaning programs tend to overlook. Some of the targets can simply be removed to create some valuable space while others are removed in an attempt to repair certain problems because they will simply recreate themselves. Targets that are currently removed by PureRa are: Config.msi, Thumbs.db, Iconcache.db, .sqm-files, Desktop.ini etc.

This is a great little tool, I do agree with Anonymous that some of the cleaning options are usually pointless as they will be recreated by the OS anyway, but it's always nice to have a tool that can do a deeper scrubbing than most other tools. I don't use PureRa often, but when I do, its because I want it done all the way.

@Anon Yes it Cleans files that are not used but Also It Cleans ALL of them off of your system. Some of the files olny are created WHEN the particular folder gets opened.

In this case there are very good chance that many of the files removed are for folders that are rarely accesed and therefor may not be made again. Also there is the matter of fragmentation and wasted inodes (yes Inodes is the wrong term but its the closest to what I'm thinking right now)

Over all this is a pretty good tool and very usefull.

Best use for this. Do a good disc clean then Defrag your system.

Who ever knew there was so much junk lying around!

Ditto,I lost my regedit favorites and my address book,be careful with this app and make a restore point first!

shodan816 on 2012-11-13 18:44

This utility really does a great job, and removes many useless files and registry entries in the process. It is missing one key element, however (in my opinion) and that is to allow the user to preview the scan results before committing and executing. Yes, you can set it to create a backup point, but that does not replace the ability for experienced users to see what is about to be cleaned prior to execution. One more small issue is there is no way to set 'Close' to mean exactly that. Close now pops the app to the taskbar, and that is not what I expect 'Close' to do. Give the user the option of having the app truly close.

So far No Problems. But Nothing running installed other than OS, & Office.
