CCleaner

Post by Atrum on Fri Jan 18, 2013 11:36 am

So I've been fixing pc's for quite some time now (as the main part of my job, or passively when going to a network closet and someone says 'my pc is running slow')
So I've seen a LOT of ccleaner results. Never anything like this though:

God I love C Cleaner. I'm surprised it took only 10 seconds to delete that much stuff.

How would one go about running a program like that on my computer at home? Is it a free program and if so where can I download it from?

While we are talking about awesome 3rd party programs I would recommend VLC player to anyone that likes to watch movies on his or her computer because unlike Windows Media player it supports almost all video types.

CCleaner is amazing. On all PCs I maintain I use Security Essentials supplemented by Malware Bytes Anti-Malware and routinely run CCleaner. Since I started using this combo I've never had a problem that took more than a minute to fix. It is suprising it was able to delete that much so quickly since it writes zeros over what it deletes, so that machine must have one hell of a fast hard disk, maybe a solid state drive? My guess as to why there why there was that much is that the user had been watching a lot of videos and loaded a lot of graphic heavy pages and hadn't had a cleaning in quite a while.

Microsoft SE - freeware and it is the best anti-virus for protecting a Windows based system - Microsoft knows how to protect against their own vulnerabilities.

MBAM - free trial but you can keep using it afterward but it won't update definitions. You could delete and redownload it also. I bought rights for like $20 so I'm set forever on that.

CCleaner - freeware, small, and simple. I usually start it by right clicking the recycle bin when I have something to delete.
