As most of us know, there are many cleaning products out there for our computers, one of the many being that is suggested being CCleaner. I’m personally a big fan of it, for its ease of use and the fact it’s never deleted anything that should have been kept. It also strikes a lot of places that I’ve noticed other cleaners miss due to improper rules or just not looking for the proper location, such as working with some Firefox derivatives, like Pale Moon. But at the same time, one of the biggest complaints I hear about CCleaner is that it misses some applications altogether or that it doesn’t do as good of a job as other applications. Which is where CCEnhancer comes into play and provides a bunch of powerful new features to CCleaner.
CCEnhancer weighs in at about 250 kb, is extremely small, and is only used once to download new cleaning rules to your pre-installed copy of CCleaner. You only have to hit the Download Latest, then you can delete the application, seeing as it only downloads the rules you need into CCleaner itself. As you can see below, this is what application cleaning it will add to your copy of CCleaner, those entries with an asterisk are added by CCEnhancer.
Seriously, it couldn’t be simpler or easier. I’m actually surprised no one came up with this idea before to add functionality to CCleaner, and this now lets me clean up my trial copy of Photoshop history, the Flash cookies without having to install Better Privacy into my copy of Firefox, even after SRWare Iron, which is my personal choice for a Chrome-like browser. (No offense to the Chrome users, but I prefer my privacy, hence why I use the secured version.) So if you use CCleaner and you are looking for ways to add onto it’s default functionality, take a good look at CCEnhancer. It’s not officially supported by Piriform and works for Windows only.
