CCleaner v3.0

The best hard drive cleaner available.

CCleaner Releases Version 3.0, Adds Secure Drive Wiping and Other Improvements

Lifehacker: Any application called CCleaner where the first ‘C’ stands for Crap has to be good, right? Okay, maybe not, but this one is, thoroughly cleaning out your web browser, Recycle Bin and temporary files, registry, unnecessary third-party application trash, and oh so much more. Running CCleaner on your system promises to free up space, keep your computer running smoothly, and protect your privacy. It’s also very fast and very easy to use. (Read more).  Among the changes in version 3.0 are the new 64-bit native EXE designed for those of you running 64-bit versions of Windows, as well as a new Drive Wiper tool that safely and securely erases your hard drive. They’ve also improved IE9 and Google Chrome support, as well as added improvements to HTML5 database cleaning for all those modern webapps. It also sports a pretty neat feature that intelligently decides which cookies you probably want to keep (singling out sites like Google, Yahoo, and others) so you don’t erase useful information on your machine that eases web browsing.

In addition to the new features, it’s also added support for a few popular applications, like AVG Antivirus, Audacity, LogMeIn Hamachi, BitTorrent, and others. For the full list of changes, check out the version history page, and be sure to avoid the hassle of running it by setting a CCleaner schedule.

CCleaner 3.0 is a free download for Windows machines only.
