Now available -- CCleaner 3.19 and Defraggler 2.10
Piriform Ltd has updated two of its flagship free products for Windows users with the release of CCleaner 3.19 and Defraggler 2.10. CCleaner 3.19, an all-purpose cleaning tool, adds an option for skipping the User Account Control warning in Vista and Windows 7, plus includes new and improved application cleaning options.
Defraggler 2.10 promises to improve defrag speeds by up to 30 per cent, and includes a revamped scheduler and various other optimizations.
CCleaner 3.19’s headline new feature is a new setting, accessible from the Advanced Options section of the program, to skip the User Account Control warning each time the program is launched in Vista or Windows 7. This obviously speeds up loading, but will also please advanced users who configure the application via scripts or to run at boot time.
Application support is extended to Firefox 13 Beta and BitDefender, while Thunderbird is now given its own separate cleaning section.
Improved cleaning and detection options cover Aurora, Google Chrome Saved Passwords, Scheduled Tasks, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, VLC Media Player and Avast! Antivirus 6. The update is rounded off by a slew of unnamed minor bug fixes. A portable build of CCleaner is also available.
Defraggler 2.10, also available as a standaloneportable build, claims to improve defrag times by up to 30 per cent. The new build also optimizes its free space algorithms, improves the calculation of a drive’s fragmentation during the defrag process and introduces a re-architected scheduling manager, which includes a fix for keyboard support. The update is rounded off by unspecified minor UI tweaks.
CCleaner 3.19 and Defraggler 2.10, along with CCleaner 3.19 Portable and Defraggler 2.10 Portable, are all available as a free downloads for PCs running Windows XP or later. Paid-for versions with automatic updates and support are also available through the Piriform website.
