An Avast-owned company, Piriform developed and launched CCleaneron Windows back in 2004. Then, the macOS version of the software followed in 2012, and the Android version two years later.

CCleaner is very lightweight. With a setup file size of roughly 10MB, it doesn't consume a significant amount of your computer's storage or even power.

Also, the developers provide regular updates to keep the software up-to-date as well as fix possible bugs. It scans your computer and provides a constant reminder to clean junks when they get too heavy.

Different versions of CCleanerare available, depending on your needs. There are the free and professional versions, the latter requires subscription payments after a free trial period.

However, if you wish to use the software on up to three PCs, then we suggest that you consider the CCleaner Professional bundle.
