CCleaner Portable is a free advanced system cleaning utility. It's a software program developed by Piriform who also makes the ever so popular Speccy and Defraggler system tools. Its primary function is to clean and optimize the Windows operating system, as well as remove temporary files and unnecessary data from various applications. CCleaner stands for "Crap Cleaner," indicating its focus on cleaning out unnecessary and temporary files that accumulate on a computer over time.

Some of its features include:

  • Junk File Removal: Helps to clean up temporary files, cache files, cookies, and other unnecessary data that can accumulate on your computer and take up disk space.
  • Registry Cleaner: It includes a registry cleaner that scans for and removes unnecessary entries in the Windows registry. The registry is a database that stores configuration settings for the operating system and installed applications.
  • Browser Cleaning: Can clear browsing history, cookies, and temporary internet files from web browsers like Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Edge, and others.
  • Software Uninstall: Allows you to uninstall programs and applications from your computer, including removing leftover files and registry entries.

Best of all, this system cleaning tool is portable software, so you can bring it with you on a USB flash drive or other external device and use it at any Windows computer.
