I have found a really simple, efficient and pleasant-on-the-eye piece of software called CCleaner from the Major Geeks website. It can clean you hard drive, finding files the Windows disk cleaner doesn’t, including:

  • Internet Explorer
    – Temporary File Cache.
    – URL History.
    – Cookies.
    – Hidden Index.dat files.
    – Last download file location..
  • Firefox
    – Temporary File Cache.
    – URL History.
    – Cookies.
    – Download manager.
  • Windows
    Recycle Bin, Clipboard, Windows Temporary files, Windows Log files, Recent Documents (on the Start Menu), Run history (on the Start Menu), Windows XP Search Assistant history, Windows XP old Prefetch data, Windows memory dumps after crashes, Chkdsk file fragments, Menu Order cache, Tray Notifications Cache, Window Size and Location Cache, User Assist history, IIS Log Files, Custom Folders.
  • And more…

According to Windows disk cleaner my HDD was clean as a whistle, but this managed to find an extra 40MB! Space for another albums worth of music. *UPDATE* My friend used CCleaner and recovered 1.5GB of space!*

BUT also it is bundled with a Windows Registry cleaner, that can help speed up your computer. What is great about this registry cleaner is the backup component, meaning you can feel confident about using this feature. It checks:

  • File Extensions, ActiveX Controls, ClassIDs, ProgIDs, Uninstallers, Shared DLLs, Fonts, Help File references, Application Paths, Icons, Invalid Shortcuts and more…

So, i would recommended that any avid PC user who wants to keep their computer in tip-top shape gets this free download.
