The new build promises compatibility with the RTM build (10240) of Windows 10, and adds support for Microsoft Edge Browser Monitoring to the Professional version of the software. By adding Edge to the Browser Monitoring feature in CCleaner Pro, users can now automatically clean the browser whenever it’s closed (or be prompted to do so).
In addition to the new Pro-only feature, CCleaner 5.0.8 also handles the new Edge browser better too in both free and paid-for editions, implementing improvements to the cleaning of saved passwords and the browser cache.
In addition to strengthening Edge support, users of Opera 30 should also enjoy improved session cleaning in the new build.
Other changes to app cleaning see support extended to Foxit Reader 7 and RealTimes, while Avira Antivirus, BlueStacks and Media Player Classic cleaning have all been improved too. The new build also promises better support for Include and Exclude wildcards.
One final change for Pro users sees a new “Open CCleaner” option added to the System and Browser Monitoring functions.
The update is rounded off with the usual translation updates, minor GUI tweaks and unspecified bug fixes.
CCleaner 5.0.8 FINAL and CCleaner 5.0.8 Portable are available now as freeware downloads for PCs running Windows XP or later. A Professional version offering additional features including real-time monitoring and complete system cleaning is also available, and the best place to get it is the Downloadcrew Software Store, where it costs just $17.46, an exclusive discount of 30 per cent off the MSRP.
