Info updated on:

CCleaner is a popular utility that was designed for Windows PCs, Macs, Android phones, etc. This program provides you with an efficient solution for optimizing the performance of your computer as it immediately removes junk data, browser history, unneeded language files, etc.

You can also use this tool to delete app logs, clear the contents from the Trash program, and manage start-up items. You don't require much computer experience in order to handle this application. Just select the type of files you wish to remove from your Mac and the program will do the rest.

Another advantage is that CCleaner comes with an integrated app uninstaller. This feature might prove to be of good use as it removes programs from your computer, including all preference files or other type of data relevant to the selected app.

In my opinion, CCleaner is one of the best system maintenance utilities designed for Mac. It's very simple to use, offers you immediate results, and has simple to configure settings.

So, you should definitely give this program a try if you're looking for a simple and efficient way to optimize the performance of your computer.

Not the excellence it was.In fact quite useless.It does not install so cannot run.It was originally called Crap Cleaner.Its now crap.It looks like an attempt to sell the Premium version, which could be the same but it possibly runs because you paid for it?A lost customer after many many years of swearing by PIRIFORM.This is now sold to AVAST I believe who were a trusted name but they may not be much longer. if this is what we can expect.

This program is by far not the best system maintenance utility one can get on the Web, but still one of the most popular ones. As I used it on my computer, it resolved several dozens registry issues and helped me clean up in my start-up programs, which sped up my system performance significantly.
However, CCleaner just wouldn't work properly, when I tried to process large massives of data, like the one gigabyte large browser cache. Instead it would hang up and use up all my CPU resources. No need to say, I didn't like it; even more so because I could close the program only through the terribly lagging System Monitor.
