Piriform ccleaner review

In my experience, I have found ccleaner is one of the best utility tools to help you Optimize your computer’s performance. If you ever felt that your computer is slow, your computer may have been built up with lots of temporary files, these temporary files are downloaded to your computer when you surf the internet or install software for your computer, find out in this ccleaner review how you can use this software to finally speed up your PC.   

About CCleaner Installation

Piriform Ccleaner is one of my all time favorite app to Optimize your computer.  Every time a relative or friend complains to me, about slow computer performance, I always recommend ccleaner as a last resort, to reinstalling Windows Operating System. 

The Software is very simple to install, and I always had a high success rate in fixing small annoying computer problems such as toolbar add-on’s, slow PC Performance, and when the computer does not shut down properly.  It also has a registry checker, where it will identify issues with your registry, and it will fix the problem without causing any issues, unlike other type of registry and optimization software on the market.  It is owned by the company named Piriform. 

Piriform have many great apps for your Windows and Mac Computer, such as data recovery, Disk De-fragmentation, and a computer system information tool. 

The graphical user interface has a nice clean layout and the features are easy to follow and navigate.  There are four main sections of the software. I call these sections Tabs.  Each section can perform different operations.  I will explain each here.

 

THE CLEANER TAB

This is one of the main features of the software where you can do most of your computer optimization, it will clear most of your internet files, cookies, browser history and clear your cache settings.  Click the analyze button to start to analyze your computer for issues.  Once it has finished you will see a list of problems it has found.  Once analysis is complete click the run cleaner icon to start optimization process.  In my experience I have found that it may not always clean up everything.  Give it a second scan to be sure.

THE REGISTRY TAB

The Registry tab will allow you to use ccleaner to scan issues you may be having with Windows Registry, unlike with most software, I have found ccleaner to perform registry clean without any issues, the only thing I found is, that you may need to run it a couple of times, as it does not clean everything.

Ccleaner’s Tools

Piriform Ccleaner has many types of Tools available and they are pretty cool! Some of these features include:

  • Uninstall Utility – An alternative to Windows uninstall utility.  You can use ccleaner to uninstall any software applications on your Windows PC .

  • Startup Utility – If you have lots of programs that automatically start with windows, these can also cause your computer to slow down. With this utility you can enable or disable any programs that start up when Windows starts.

  • System Restore – CCleaners System Restore is much like the Windows System Restore feature, If you have trouble using Microsoft Windows, whether it’s a software or driver issue, you can use ccleaner Restore to start Microsoft Windows at a different time before you have installed software or device driver.

  • Drive Wipe – This is a pretty cool feature of ccleaner.  If you have an old hard drive you don’t want to use anymore, usually when you delete your files there are ways in which you can recover your files,  it is not always certain that your files are permanently erased.  but with this feature, when you run it, you will be able to be sure that any files you had on there are unrecoverable.  A great feature and very easy to use! Be sure to check it out.
