CCleaner 5.47
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 5.47, which is a minor release (see full changelog for more):

General 
- Fixed cleaning from the Recycle Bin context menu 
- Fixed cleaning via commandline 

Browser Cleaning 
- Added a new Edge cleaning rule for cleaning Credit Card data

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 !

Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 1809)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows October 2018 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1809 which is the October 2018 Update.
