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.
