CCleaner – Freeware Program to Clean Your Computer


This is a program that I have been using for years called CCleaner. What it does is it cleans up your hard drive by removing temp files, bat files, internet files, and the like. Also, it has a built in registry cleaner. Ok, I don’t know how well this registry cleaner compares to Registry Mechanic, but I never had a problem with it.

Here is what the program can do for you.
