A tool that finds and removes junk files to free disk space and improve performance
Windows XP / Windows 8.1 / Windows 7 / Windows Vista / Windows 8
CCleaner Professional, formally CrapCleaner, is a must-have utility program that detects and removes errors and junk files on PCs. With only a couple of clicks, CCleaner Professional will help you take back disk space as well as speed up your PC. And unlike with the free version, CCleaner Professional monitors functions in real-time.
As the name suggests, the main function of CCleaner Professional is to clean up your PC. A brief scan will detect any and all unnecessary Windows files as well as applications that you have installed and allows you to remove them effectively and simply. (This includes things like cookies and saved passwords, which you can choose to not delete.)
You can also use the 'Registry' section to check the integrity of your Windows registry. It scans for dozens of different errors and allows you to easily create a backup copy before fixing any of the errors it may find.
This Professional version has more options than the base CCleaner, like quick uninstaller, a view of your startup programs, and it allows you to manage your restore points.
You can also enjoy automatic updates with the Professional version.
This is a program that makes running basic maintenance on your computer simple, easy, and accessible. Unlike with other similar programs that might allow you to uninstall or delete files that are necessary, CCleaner Professional warns you when you may be deleting something important and also backs up your files before you implement the changes.
Whether you're familiar with maintaining your computer, or you're just starting to take these measures to ensure your computer runs smoothly, this is a fantastic program.
