What is this program used for?

Over time, the operating system fills up with trash files. It leads to system and application failures and a significant decrease in Mac performance and free disk space. It is a difficult task, even for experienced users, to bring the operating system back to a stable operation state with the help of standard tools.

CCleaner is considered the best program for optimizing operating systems. Its minimalistic interface and extensive toolset have made it extremely popular among many users. The utility is in demand as an effective system recovery tool. It is also suitable for preventing possible problems.

Program features

CCleaner can deeply scan the system, finding and removing old, unnecessary, unused, and residual files in browsers and applications, and system updates. It supports working with all popular browsers, such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera, and Safari, where Cleaner cleans temporary files, history of visits and downloads, cookies, autocompletion of registration forms, etc.

System cleaning

Cleaning the system from the temporary files can be recognized as the essential function of CCleaner for Mac. Due to the various settings available for this option, users can set the necessary scanning parameters for each supported application and system file search.

Working with the registry

The registry monitoring tool is located in a separate section. CCleaner checks each registry entry for its correspondence to applications and services and offers to delete broken or empty entries in case of missing links. CCleaner will find missing DLLs, invalid file extensions, and ActiveX errors in the registry, organize the Start menu, work through OS services, verify application paths, and much more.

At the same time, the program offers to make a registry backup before deletion in case something goes wrong or you don't like the result. Cleaning the registry and various trash on your PC allows you to get extra space on your hard drives, and the system starts up faster and becomes more efficient.

Updating drivers

Driver updates ensure the smooth operation of all Mac components with the highest possible performance. That's why the developers have added the ability to update the drivers to the program automatically. The Driver Updater service database has various drivers, including updates for rare and old devices that have passed authenticity and security checks. This feature is handy because many users have recently downloaded special driver update programs to avoid wasting time searching for the right software on various web resources.

Moreover, CCleaner developers have added another vital option to disable or suspend unnecessary resource-intensive system services and applications running in the background. This feature increases the overall performance of your computer and saves battery life on your laptop.
