CCleaner v5.54.7088 available

[German]A brief information for CCleaner users (I know that some of my blog readers are interested in that stuff). Piriform released an update to CCleaner v5.54.7088 for Windows on March 4, 2019.


CCleaner is a free tool to clean up Windows – Wikipedia writes here about ‘optimization’. Some hints on what is ‘cleaned and optimized’ can be found at Askvg. I would quote CCleaner as a kind of snake oil (not really necessary).

What’s new in  v5.54.7088?

Piriform writes in the release notes that this version improves the behavior of notifications and enabled a preview feature for some paying users. Here is the list of new features.

  • Feature Preview: Some users of CCleaner Professional (and its trial) will find an early version of a new feature in the Tools menu. We will fully roll out this feature to CCleaner Professional in the coming weeks.
  • General: Fixed an issue that, in isolated cases, could cause some notifications to be shown too often

Users of the free version of CCleaner must update it manually. The new version of CCleaner Free can be downloaded from this website. CCleaner Professional is updated automatically. CCleaner 5.5x runs under Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8.1 and Windows 10. It is also available as an app for Android.

I generally advise against using the tool. Actually these ‘cleanups’ are superfluous – Windows can do a lot too. In addition, there is always the danger that something will break. Piriform and CCleaner have also attracted attention in the past through a series of unpleasant stories. You can read the details in the following linked articles. So nobody can claim that I didn’t warn.
