CCleaner 3.05, which is also available in a portable version, is designed to clean out a wide range of files and Registry settings from a user’s computer for optimisation and privacy reasons.
Version 3.05 now supports both Firefox 4 and Internet Explorer 9 within a week of both browsers’ official release. Also improved is the Registry cleaning component, which now handles obsolete Windows Firewall rules, plus the program has added cleaning options for 21 new programs, including Adobe Air, Skype and Steam.
CCleaner 3.05 has added a number of new browser cleaning options to go with its added support for IE9 and Firefox 4. These include Internet Explorer Cached Feeds, IE Add-ons Statistics, iTunes cookie management and saved/opened directories paths in Opera. Alongside these additions are two improvements to CCleaner’s “Intelligent” cookie-keeping feature and the saved passwords feature in Mozilla-based browsers, including Firefox.
There’s a new Registry cleaner covering Windows services to go with the new functionality covering the Windows Firewall, along with the ability to detect invalid Browser Helper Objects (BHOs). Finally, version 3.04 introduced support for environment variables when defining custom folder locations, and version 3.05 extends this to cover a wide number of common user folders, such as %Documents% and %MyPictures%.
CCleaner 3.05 is available now for free download and requires a PC running Windows 2000 or later.
