CCleaner adds Windows 8.1 support, ability to remove previous Windows installations
Piriform has released its regular monthly update to CCleaner with the release of CCleaner 4.07. Also available in portable form, version 4.07 adds official support for the recently released Windows 8.1 update, plus supports the Release Preview of IE11 for Windows 7.
The new build also adds a new option that enables users to free up drive space by clearing out old folders left behind by previous versions of Windows.
CCleaner 4.07 also adds support for cleaning the Baidu Spark web browser, along with updated support for ABBYY FineReader 11.0, Corel PaintShop Pro X6 and Nero Burning ROM 2014. It also promises improved support for a range of tools include WinZip, Java and Macromedia Shockwave 10 and 11.
There’s also improved cleaning of the Internet Explorer history and enhanced debug mode notification to go with the usual collection of minor user interface tweaks and bug fixes.
The update follows on from last month’s release of version 4.06, which included an optimized Startup tool for browser detection, an updated procedure when recursively analyzing and cleaning folders, and a new free text entry box for including and excluding items. Among new tools supported in version 4.06 were CDBurnerXP, UltraEdit and HandBrake.
A Pro version with added features, including system monitoring and multiple profile cleaning, is also available.
