CCleaner 2.0 is Out!

I love CCleaner! It is a very useful utility that does JUST what I want it to do, and no more… gotta love that! Anyway, it has a new interface, has been re-written from the ground up, and is still just as cool!

CCleaner 2.0 Features!

“Features of CCleaner 2.0:

* Complete rebuild in C++
With the requirements for a portable version, 64-bit compatibility and Windows Vista increasing against the limitations of the old architecture. We decided to rebuild the entire CCleaner application in highly optimized C++.
* Faster analyzing and cleaning
Each scanning process was rewritten from scratch and fully optimized. The result being a noticeable speed increase in all areas.
* Portable
CCleaner can now run from a USB thumbdrive and be installed/run on a computer without a complicated setup process.
* Compact
The rewrite removed all external file dependencies, so the main EXE is now half the size of the original program and support files.
* Redesigned User Interface
The original CCleaner user interface was looking a little dated, so the GUI was redesigned with a modern look, but without sacrificing speed or usability. New icons were created for the interface and the main program icon was updated with a more modern style.
* Exclusions
It is now possible to specify files, folders and registry keys to ignore from the cleaning process.
* Loads of little tweaks
Too numerous to mention them all separately, we’ve tried to improve CCleaner in all areas.”


  • I love CC Cleaner. I run it every day on my office and my home commuter – there is almost always 50Mb worth of crap it removes – cookies, histories, etc., the stuff that piles up and gunks up the works. I know cookies have a purpose but I keep wondering what their doing, and what is the line between a legitimate cookie and spy ware. I use Zone Alarm, a free firewall. I also run Diskeeper everyday, the cheaper “home” version, and have switched to the free AVG anti virus which uses much less in terms of resources than Norton did. I still have Spyware Doctor, which is not free, which I run every night and which always seems to catch something. Anyway, Kudo’s to the folks who make CC Cleaner.

  • Same here. Crap Cleaner is an excellent program and one of those indespensible tools for keeping bosses from snooping. Definately one to keep on the keyring flash drive.
