No it’s not a typo. There’s a program called CCleaner. It’s free to download and it will spring clean your computer in a jiffy to free up disc space and make it run faster. Yippee. It’s also one of the applications in my recommended downloads section, so I vouch for it.
What is CCleaner?
Firstly, let’s get over the double ‘c’ in the name. It effectively means c: – cleaner. So in other words it’s designed to clean the hard drive of your computer. But fear not, it’s pretty smart. It won’t go scrounging around your folders and chuck out your precious documents or images willy nilly. Instead, it’s designed to seek and destroy temporary system file footprints that pretty much just take up space and slow down your computer.
In short, CCleaner gives you the option to delete:
- temporary files
- broken shortcuts
- browsing history
- temporary internet downloads
How often you run it is up to you. I’m a fan of running it weekly, but there’s no hard and fast rule.

Where Do I Download Me Some CCleaner?
CCleaner is made by a company called Piriform. It’s also only a couple of megabytes in size, so doesn’t weight down your system with its presence. It’s primarily built for PCs, however there is a preliminary Mac version.
