CCleaner – essential Windows free app – hits v3

CCleaner - essential Windows free app - hits v3

CCleaner is such an essential utility for Windows PCs that it’s always amongst the very first programs we download on to new machines.

The free app – which, frankly, really should be built into Windows by now – is the best system optimisation, privacy and cleaning free tool out there.

Light and fast

The lightweight download (just 2.7MB) clears out unused files from your system and cleans traces of your online activities such as your Internet history.

Registry sorted

There’s also a fast, fully fledged registry cleaner onboard which can remove unused and old entries, including File Extensions, ActiveX Controls, ClassIDs, ProgIDs, Uninstallers, Shared DLLs, Fonts, Help Files, Application Paths, Icons, Invalid Shortcuts and more – and there’s a handy back up function too.

We really can’t recommend this product enough – and best of all, it’s free!
