Helpful Hints to Optimise CCleaner’s Abilities

Don’t Run CCleaner Every Day

You may be tempted to run the program every day. If you have a full disk, clearing out the garbage will definitely boost your computer’s performance. However, running CCleaner on a daily basis does more harm than good. Some files are created to make your computer run faster. Your browser’s cache will save images and various other files so that they load faster. For example, Windows Explorer’s thumbnail cache will allow you to load folders filled with videos and pictures without having to reload them all of the time. Cookies will keep you logged into the sites that you visit frequently.

The Solution:

If you decide that you would like to keep cookies and certain caches, then all you have to do before you run the cleaner is uncheck the boxes in the sidebar. There is even an option to whitelist certain cookies. While there is nothing wrong with cleaning your files on a regular basis, unchecking certain things will keep your computer running faster.
