Regular Microsoft Windows-based computer users, can often see a performance decrease from your PC. It may arise from different sources; the main is the large number of junk files generated by Windows during its normal operation; these garbage files are not deleted by the system, taking up significant amount of storage. In these situations, when is required to improve the computer performance, it is necessary to remove these junk-files using a system cleaner. In such cases CCleaner, can help performing this task in a simple way.
The program is not only able to remove junk-files from hidden areas; it also optimizes the Windows-Registry. The registry contains references to installed programs. When a given program is uninstalled, the existing references are not removed, causing invalid values. It may cause a common Windows issue or slow running. These Windows problems will be easily resolved through the registry optimization module included in CCleaner.
CCleaner is a software designed for both regular and advanced users. It has been achieved through a clear and easy-to-use interface.

In addition, this software has different wizards, which facilitate their operation even more. The program's installation is a very simple procedure that can be performed by regular users, without the need to know system's technical aspects. Another important advantage is that CCleaner can be installed on standard computers; in fact, it doesn't have special requirements.

This eliminates garbage files generated by Windows and common applications such as browsers, MS-Office and even the produced by the software installation. In such situations, CCleaner offers the user the ability of selective removal, giving flexibility and security. This whole process is performed in two stages; the first takes a system-scan detecting all areas that require attention, and the second shows the list of recommendations.
The 'Registry Optimization Module', can remove invalid entries, compacting the whole registry database. It improves the system performance and stability. It is common to see that after program's uninstall, Windows stops running properly; this system issue may be caused by non-removed pointers to components that have been removed from the system. In most situations, CCleaner can be very useful, detecting and removing such records.
Other features find in this practical utility, helps to uninstall applications in an effective way; in addition, it offers the ability of remove non-required startup programs, improving the system performance; and the ability to manage system-restoring points. The program offers privacy features, such as a solid wipe-module, which allows to delete files or entire drives, preventing them to be recovered even by forensic-tools.
