CCleaner is a free program for optimizing your computer. It combines a system cleaner that removes all unnecessary and temporary files, and a full-featured registry cleaner. CCleaner allows Windows to work faster and more efficiently, and frees up valuable hard disk space. At the same time, it is small in size, speed and absolute free of charge.
- Removing items from autoload. A large number of automatically starting programs is the most common cause of slow computer operation. You can disable all unnecessary and speed up the loading and operation of the operating system in the section “Service” → “Startup” → “Windows”.
- Setting the context menu. Many programs consider it their duty to place their own items in the context menu of files and folders. As a result, it becomes too bulky and inconvenient. You can bring these Windows elements to their original appearance at the address “Service” → “Startup” → “Context Menu”.
- Search for duplicate files. When the operating system and some programs are running, completely identical files can be created that only take up disk space. Users also often breed duplicate files and folders. The CCleaner program will help to cope with this problem by comparing duplicates not only by name, but also by size, creation date, and even content. You can start the search for duplicates at the address “Service” → “Search for duplicates”.
- Cleaning free disk space. If you want to get rid of deleted files, then you need to erase free disk space. The necessary tool is in CCleaner in the section “Service” → “Erasing Disks”.
- Analysis of disk fullness. Free disk space always ends unexpectedly. It is completely incomprehensible where it disappears. A special utility in the composition of CCleaner will help lift the veil of secrecy over this supernatural process. It is located in the section “Service” → “Disk Analysis”.
