CONS of CCleaner Pro Crack
- License limitations.
- Performance improvement not as large as the competition’s in some areas.
- Some features are separate downloads.
As noted earlier Windows 10 includes a handful of built-in tune-up utilities that you may want to check out if you don’t want to spend money on third-party software. The upside? The tools are free and effective! The downside?
The tools are a bit scattered across different operating system areas and lack some of the extra features found in third-party tools. Additionally, CCleaner Pro v6.02.9938 Crack manages to best Windows 10’s tools in a few ways that I’ll highlight in this review’s Performance Improvements section.
A New Look
The newest CCleaner has a feature set that isn’t radically different from the previous version’s, but it does have a major interface change. The new Easy Clean section boasts a simplified view that makes it incredibly easy and to remove junk files, website trackers, and browser history information in quick fashion.
You simply click the large Analyze button to begin the cleaning process, instead of checking/unchecking Windows’ various folders and applications (which is a potentially intimidating task for the uninitiated).
Easy Clean walks you through the cleaning process in everyday language, so that non-technical users better understand what files are being cleaned and why. For example, Temporary Internet Files are now described as “Files left behind when you visit websites.” If you don’t need this type of handholding, CCleaner Pro v6.02.9938 Crack original cleaning screen—now renamed Custom Clean—is still available.
Regardless of the section you need to clean or repair, you begin by initiating a system scan to identify problem areas. After that, you click Run Cleaner or Fix Selected Issues to finish the job. Doing so causes CCleaner to display how much hard drive space it has freed up.
A related feature, real-time system monitoring, alerts you when you can save disk space by running CCleaner, which is useful. If your PC is anything like my gunked-up testbed, a cleaning can result in several gigabytes of reclaimed storage.
CCleaner Pro v6.02.9938 Crack lacks a general backup, though there is a registry-specific backup feature for when you run the registry-repair tool. Instead, CCleaner is bundled with Recuva, a standalone program that lets you resurrect deleted files.
I wish it were actually integrated into CCleaner Professional Plus, because the separate app gives the tune-up experience a splintered feel. Likewise, Defraggler Professional Edition (a hard drive defragmenter) and Speccy Professional Edition (an app that gives you at-a-glance information about your PC’s CPU, Motherboard, RAM, and components) are Professional Plus tools that aren’t baked directly into CCleaner, either. I dislike downloading these additional apps, but it may not be a big deal to you.
On the upside, you can schedule cleaning times so that CCleaner handles the cleaning and repair tasks at specified times. This isn’t an unusual feature—Anvisoft Cloud Booster and other quality tune-up utilities have this feature, too—but it’s a welcome addition. Other useful features include the Startup and Drive Wiper tools.
The former lets you limit the software that launches as your PC boots, thus reducing the computer’s boot time. The latter securely overwrites deleted files so that they’re very difficult to recover. It’s a feature that proves useful when it comes time to get rid of sensitive data.
Performance Improvements and Comparisons
I tested CCleaner Professional Plus’ ability to whip a PC back into shape by performing two tests—running the Geekbench system performance tool and measuring boot times—before and after running the tune-up utility to compare the computer’s speed. I ran each test three times, and then averaged the numbers.
Before CCleaner scrubbed the system, my testbed that features an Intel Core i5 CPU, Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics card, 8GB of RAM, 2TB hard drive, and Windows 10 operating system booted in a lengthy 3 minutes and 32 seconds. The rig scored 1,301, 5,960, and 182,137 on Geekbench’s Single-Core, Multi-Core, and Compute Score tests, respectively.
After I used CCleaner, I saw much improved system performance. The boot time dropped to 1 minute and 8 seconds, a time that matched Iolo System Mechanic’s category-leading score in my tests. The Single-Core, Multi-Core, and Compute Score numbers rose to 1384, 5963, and 183401, respectively. Those numbers placed a bit behind Windows 10’s 1516, 5972, and 188967 marks, respectively.
Raw Geekbench numbers, however, aren’t the be-all and end-all of PC performance. Certainly, the data shows that you can improve your PC’s performance with Windows 10’s built-in tools, but there is another reason you may want to invest in a third-party tune-up utility: convenience.
CCleaner Pro v6.02.9938 Crack has most of its valuable tools in one convenient location. Windows 10 has its Disk Defragmenter, Storage Sense, and Startup applications all located in different places within the operating system. Plus, you get Drive Wiper, an app that CCleaner claims permanently deletes unwanted, sensitive files. Windows 10 also has a feature that overwrites deleted data, Cipher, but it requires firing up Windows Powershell and tinkering with the command line. I think it’s safe to say that most people do not want that complexity.
CCleaner Pro v6.02.9938 Crack offers three different payment plans based on your requirements and budget: Free, Professional, and Professional Plus. The free plan(opens in new tab) features basic cleaning capabilities with options to clean the registry, clear your disk space, remove unwanted tools and software, and delete browsing data.
