Piriform has released a first beta release of version 2.00 of CCleaner. This program is one of the better tools for cleaning a Windows PC. The program not only removes the temporary Windows and Internet files, but also the unnecessary junk of a large number of programs, including Windows Media Player, Google Toolbar, Firefox, Office, Nero, Photoshop, Ad-aware and WinRAR. In addition, the number of programs it recognizes is simply further expand. Finally, it can also fix errors in the registry and shortcuts. Version 2.00 has been completely rebuilt from the ground up and has therefore become faster and more compact, among other things. Furthermore, the user interface has been cleaned up and it is now possible to exclude specific files, folders and registry keys. The full changelog for version 2.00 looks like this:

Changes in CCleaner version 2.00:

  • Complete rebuild in C++

With the requirements for a portable version, 64-bit compatibility and Windows Vista increasing against the limitations of the old architecture. We decided to rebuild the entire CCleaner application in highly optimized C++.

  • Faster analyzing and cleaning
    Each scanning process was rewritten from scratch and fully optimized. The result being a noticeable speed increase in all areas.
  • Portable
    CCleaner can now run from a USB thumbdrive and be installed/run on a computer without a complicated setup process.
  • Compact
    The rewrite removed all external file dependencies, so the main EXE is now half the size of the original program and support files.
  • Redesigned User Interface
    The original CCleaner user interface was looking a little dated, so the GUI was redesigned with a modern look, but without sacrificing speed or usability. New icons were created for the interface and the main program icon was updated with a more modern style.
  • Exclusions
    It is now possible to specify files, folders and registry keys to ignore from the cleaning process.
  • Loads of little tweaks
    Too numerous to mention them all separately, we’ve tried to improve CCleaner in all areas.[break] Click on the image for a larger version.
