I didn’t noticed that, but blog reader DP has left a comment about this software update recently (thanks).

A few words about CCleaner

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).

Whats new in CCleaner v5.60.7307?

Piriform writes in the Release Notes that there are improvements in cleaning various browsers from flash. Here is the list of new features. 

Browser Cleaning

  • Extended the Flash cleaning rules in Chrome
  • Added Flash cleaning rules to Opera and CCleaner Browser

CCleaner Browser

  • Added Smart Cleaning and Easy Clean support for the new CCleaner Browser

Software Updater

  • Fixed a bug which caused the ‘Latest and greatest! Your applications are up-to-date’ message to disappear
  • Fixed a bug which navigated users to the uninstaller screen once they had chosen to trial the feature

The users of the free version of CCleaner update it manually. The new version of CCleaner Free can be downloaded from this website. CCleaner Professional is updated automatically. CCleaner 5.6x is available for Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8.1, and Windows 10.

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.
