CCleaner 4.19
Give your system a complete cleanse with this impressive, free, optimisation tool

Go out and buy a new computer, turn it on for the first time and you’ll be amazed how quickly it boots and launches the installed applications. Your first thoughts will be that you were right to sell your old PC as this one is so much more speedy that you have become more productive.

Result? You settle in to your old habits of installing and testing software, removing them from your system and quickly misunderstanding that it’s the software that drives your computer, not the hardware. There’s little difference between a 1-year-old PC and a brand number computer. They all rely on the same element and that’s the operating system and installed applications.

After installing and removing software, then browsing the Internet for a few months, all sorts of temporary information is left strewn across your hard drive. Worse, the Registry, which is a database of information about your computer, is left with erroneous entries that point to long-deleted directories, link filetypes to applications that don’t exist and even attempt to launch startup applications that were removed from your machine.

The answer is a system cleanser and there are few better tools than the free CCleaner. This tool will remove unwanted information, temporary files, your browsing history, huge log files and even the settings left behind by previously installed software. It also includes a Registry cleaner and optimiser, which will find and remove entries and streamline the database.

CCleaner doesn’t stop there. It includes some security tools such as a data eraser so you can make sure files and information is completely removed from your PC.

This is CCleaner 4.19, which is a minor release. Changes include:

- Added Windows 10 Preview compatibility.
- Improved Opera 25 Cache cleaning.
- Improved exception handling and reporting architecture.
- Improved Auto-Update checking process. 
- Updated various translations. 
- Minor GUI Improvements. 
- Minor bug fixes.

Verdict:

You can't get much better than this free optimisation tool, that will give your system a boost

CCleaner is a great utility software

Like Olav I too have been using CCleaner for over 10 years. As for a freeware they do updates not like other freeware out there which last up to a year or less and dies. I give thumbs up to CCleaner AKA Crap Cleaner.

The Ultimate Cleanup Utility!

Posted by: Olav Tryggvason, 21 January 2012 05:54

I've been using CCLeaner for nearly 10 years, from back when it was called, funnily enuf, Crap Cleaner (hence the 'CC' at the beginning of it's name), and I still refer to it as that.

The long version of the name details perfectly what the program does: cleans your PC of various crap it picks up on it's daily journey, regardless of whether you use the internet or not. All kinds of things end up cluttering your PC, from Temporary Internet Files to the Recycle Bin to cookies, the list goes on. CCleaner, with 2 clicks of the mouse, will clear all that stuff out.

A further helpfull thing they've included, at some stage in the last 4 or 5 years I think, is a very good Uninstall facility. It generates a list of all programs installed on your PC, and will launch the uninstaller for any program you choose - and it's much faster than using the Add/Remove Programs tab in Control Panel.

A quick tip - I don't know how good the Registry cleanup utility in CCleaner is, but it will back up any changes it makes beforehand anyway. Once again, how good it is compared to other products on the market is open to conjecture, but it's never given me any dramas in the last 10 years.

From me, 5 stars.

Remerber to download, Slim or portable !

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
