CCleaner 5.89.9385 Released (January 24, 2022)
Better cleaning
  • We are cleaning Chromium browser cookies again, after a change to where Chromium stores them. This affects all Chromium browsers, e.g. CCleaner Browser, Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Brave, Vivaldi, Opera and Yandex.
  • We've added support for cleaning Firefox where it’s installed via the Microsoft Store. Every app installed via the Microsoft Store saves to a new location, so we will be working our way through other popular apps on the Store to ensure that CCleaner is able to clean them.
Improved technology
  • We have upgraded CCleaner to use C++ 20. This allows us to work more efficiently and deliver app improvements more quickly.

CCleaner v5.90.9443 (16 Feb 2022)
Expanding our cleaning
  • Added new temp file cleaning for Chrome User Data
  • Added new temp file cleaning for various Windows system components
  • Added new temp file cleaning for Microsoft Photos app
  • Fixed a bug in cleaning for Windows Game Explorer
Even more reliable driver updating
  • Since its release in July 2021, we have put a lot of focus on minimizing the possibility of errors when using Driver Updater
  • This release includes two new safety features in our proprietary technology, which reduce the likelihood of problems occurring
  • Driver Updater is a feature of our premium CCleaner Professional product
  • You can check for available updates for free, but you get updates you need to either upgrade or start a free trial
NEW! Automatic language detection on install
  • Some of you told us that you uninstalled CCleaner because it doesn’t have translations when, in fact, we support over 60 languages!
  • To remedy this, when you first install CCleaner, it will intelligently start up in a suitable language based on your system settings
  • This only affects completely fresh installations (over-the-top installs do not modify language settings)
  • You can change your language setting inside the app ‘Options’ > ‘Settings’ (more).

CCleaner v5.92.9652 released

v5.92.9652 (11 Apr 2022)​

In this release, we’ve expanded cleaning for Edge, Firefox and Chrome and renamed some files for better clarity around what CCleaner is cleaning.

We’ve also released a preview of our new Performance Optimizer feature to a limited number of CCleaner users for their feedback. This new feature puts apps into ‘Sleep’ mode if they’re not needed to boost system performance.

Expanding our cleaning
  • We added cleaning of bookmark backups in Edge and Firefox
  • We expanded our Google Chrome ‘Metrics Temp Files’ rule to include Setup Metrics
  • We’ve renamed the ‘Windows SubSystems Temp Files’ rule to “Network Data Usage” to make it clearer that this rule removes historical, statistical data about your network usage.
Helping you to keep your PC running smoothly
  • We have released a preview of our new Performance Optimizer feature to a small number of users for their feedback
  • This new feature is not yet suitable for users of assistive technologies, but will be when fully released
  • We expect to make it available to everyone very soon! :)

The main feature addition of CCleaner 6.0 is a new tool called Performance Optimizer. It is designed to improve the performance of the PC in several ways. When enabled, Performance Optimizer checks the system for programs that do not need to run in the background. When found, these programs are put into sleep mode so that they use little system resources while they are in the state.

ccleaner performance optimizer explanation


When the programs are needed again, e.g., when the user brings them to the front, sleep state is automatically ended by Performance Optimizer.

A quick scan returns a list of programs sorted by the impact to the PC's performance according to CCleaner's algorithm. Three performance levels distinguish the impact a program has on the PC's performance.

I always install the slim version from the builds page and delete everything in C:\Program Files\CCleaner except CCleaner64.exe and uninst.exe to have an up-to-date CCleaner version without any bloatware.
