CCleaner tweaks browser cleaning, promises better OS detection
It’s that time of the month when Piriform issues another update to its popular Windows cleaning utility. This time, CCleaner 4.14 focuses on browsers -- and Mozilla browsers in particular -- with its latest release.
Version 4.14, also available in portable form, also improves Unicode support for its Startup tool amid a rash of other improvements.
CCleaner 4.14’s improved Unicode support for start-up items is accompanied by the prospect of more reliable detection of the Windows version currently running.
Other improvements have been implemented to CCleaner’s 64-bit Registry detection and cleaning architecture, while CCleaner Professional users gain a more reliable skip UAC warning for monitoring.
New third-party utility support comes in the form of cleaning options for PowerArchiver 2013, Nitro Pro 9 and Stardock WindowBlinds, while existing cleaning tools for Office 2010, Foxit Reader 6 and AVG Antivirus (versions 8 through 2013) have also been enhanced.
The update is completed by the usual unspecified round of bug fixes and minor GUI tweaks.
CCleaner 4.14 and CCleaner Portable 4.14 are available now as freeware downloads for PCs running Windows XP or later. A Professional version offering additional features including real-time monitoring and complete system cleaning is available for $24.95.
