CCleaner (which is short for "Crap Cleaner") is a very useful, free and otherwise small and unassuming program developed by Piriform whose main purpose is, as evidenced by the name, to wipe your hard disk of useless files, folders, or otherwise empty files. Although it has evolved through the years as one of the most reliable and well-known brands in the utility freeware segment – and constantly rated as five stars out of five in most third party publications – CCleaner also offers the capability to fix invalid, empty, and outdated entries in the registry, plus other tools like safe uninstallers and file shredders (secure file deletion, in which it will overwrite a deleted file with zeros multiple times – a process known as “passing”). Now it’s not only just a cleaner, but a system optimizer as well.
One of the great things about CCleaner is that it automatically erases your Internet browsing history – caches, cookies, you name it. This gives your privacy another layer of protection. Types of “crap” files can be automatically set to delete in an easy-to-use checkbox list on the left, while the advanced registry fixer can be set to just analyze for errors, or automatically scan for and fix errors (and ask you for a backup, just in case).
File.org aims to be the go-to resource for file type- and related software information. We spend countless hours researching various file formats and software that can open, convert, create or otherwise work with those files.
If you have additional information about which types of files CCleaner can process, please do get in touch - we would love hearing from you.
