  1. CCleaner - also known as Crap Cleaner - is a disk cleanup utility that goes beyond the scope of the built in Windows Disk Cleanup tool. Featuring the ability to clean up temporary files, browser history and cache, the Recycle Bin, along with Windows applications that you install. There is also a registry cleaner, uninstall helper, startup manager, System Restore manager and disk wiper. You can choose to have your data cleaned with a single pass or range up to the Gutmann 35 pass data cleaning sequence. There's even a cookie manager and free space wiper. One of the great things about CCleaner is that it automates all of these cleanings so you don't have to hunt down these files and generally can take mere seconds to run.

  3. I feel as though CCleaner is getting worse and worse. I've seen others around the web say the same thing, listing off what they dislike about it. CCleaner has been recommended as the disk cleanup utility to go to. Mainly because there was nothing else that was safe and reliable. Over time I've looked at CCleaner and wondered why it has not improved. Why are there not basic explanations for what it will clean, saying what it will do and things of that nature. While that may take a lot due to what all it cleans, this would also protect users from cleaning something they don't wish to remove. That includes things like settings for how they have their windows positioned, system tray settings and other things. CCleaner also puts a SkipUAC task into your Task Scheduler Library. A bit shady if you ask me.     When I've been trying out BleachBit however, it offers explanations of what it will clean which is very nice and it doesn't do shady things like SkipUAC like what CCleaner does. Piriform is sadly not a good quality company. I've seen people get banned from their forums for no good reason at all. Even I was banned when I posted a fix and months later asked why it had not been added.   So check out BleachBit and let me know what you all think.   I'm interested to hear what people think.

  5. Microsoft has released a Windows 7 update that adds a new option in the Disk Cleanup tool called Windows Update Cleanup. With it, you can free up several gigabytes of hard drive space from the bloated Windows Updates folder. Windows Updates can be terrible space hogs. Windows saves every security update and hotfix—even if they're superseded by new updates—in the WinSxS directory. You can't just manually delete everything in that folder, because some files are needed just in case a system file gets corrupted or you need to roll back a Windows Update. So that's where this new Windows Update comes in. Released yesterday for Windows 7 SP1 machines, KB 2852386 adds the ability to cleanup all the obsolete updates in the WinSxS folder. It's a "recommended" update but not "critical," so you might not have installed it yet. You can either do a Windows Update to download it or head to the Knowledge Base article to grab it from there. (Note: Windows Update Cleanup is included in Windows 8.1.) View the full article
