Piriform CCleaner Professional
Set-and-forget PC maintenance. $29.95 PER YEAR | WWW.CCLEANER.COM
Piriform CCleaner Professional is the premium version of the enormously popular free PC optimisation suite. As with that free counterpart, the basic scan in CCleaner Professional checks for cookies, cached files, downloaded files and history in all the major browsers, including Edge, Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer and Opera. CCleaner also includes a comprehensive registry cleaner — a handy tool if you’re experiencing registry-specific problems such as a new version of a program refusing to install, despite the older one being uninstalled. The Professional edition of CCleaner also includes a software uninstaller, a startup app manager, a duplicate file scanner, a drive wiper, a scan scheduler and automatic updates for all these components. The software uninstaller doesn’t let you remove multiple programs at once, but it does display many more applications than Windows’ built-in program manager — including pre-installed Windows 10 apps, which can otherwise be difficult to purge. All in all, CCleaner Professional is one of the best premium PC maintenance tools available today.
