Software Update: CCleaner 6.02

Spread the love

Piriform has released version 6.02 of CCleaner. This program can be used to clean various parts of Windows. This includes temporary Windows and Internet files, but also unnecessary junk from a large number of other programs, including Windows Media Player, Google Toolbar, Microsoft Office, Photoshop, WinRAR and so on. In addition, the number of programs that CCleaner can clean up the mess can easily be expanded with the CCEnhancer program.

In addition to cleaning, CCleaner can also fix registry and shortcut errors, customize the list of programs that start with Windows, and manage cookies. From this version, the overall condition of the computer can also be tested. In addition to a free version, there is also a pro version, which offers, among other things, an automatic update function. The following changes and improvements have been made in this release:

    • TikTok, Telegram, Discord & Amazon Prime
