Geek Software of the Week: CCleaner

OK, some history first. I used and loved a tool called “RegCleaner” that was released some years ago by a gentlemen named Jouni Vuorio. He went on to create other tools that incorporated a lot of RegCleaner’s functionality into a tool that he then charged for… OK, good for him. But, it wasn’t as simple as the old tool… and it wasn’t free either!

Now, enter CCleaner! (Which, pardon my “French,” stands for “Crap-Cleaner”) It not only cleans the registry, it also cleans up after your browser, providing better privacy, and it does the following cleaning as well:

Internet Explorer
Temporary files, URL history, cookies, Autocomplete form history, index.dat.

Firefox
Temporary files, URL history, cookies, download history.

Windows
Recycle Bin, Recent Documents, Temporary files and Log files.

Registry cleaner
Advanced features to 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… also comes with a comprehensive backup feature.

Third-party applications
Removes temp files and recent file lists (MRUs) from many apps including Opera, Media Player, eMule, Kazaa, Google Toolbar, Netscape, MS Office, Nero, Adobe Acrobat, WinRAR, WinAce, WinZip and many more…

100% Spyware FREE
This software does NOT contain any Spyware, Adware or Viruses.
