    So CCleaner is starting to run out of ideas, how to improve it, so they are starting to add limited new features, it does not even add up to TreeSize.
    If they focus on too many areas, they will suck in all of them. They better to do something like CC suite, add their defraggler and other optimizations.

    They already have CCleaner Professional Plus. Which is all of their products into one.

    Yes, but it if far from being perfect, still pretty basic, just bundled applications, they should focus on improving it, not add pointless features.

    I think it's nice for a free product.

    The GUI doesn't look good on my 125% scaling, looks washed out with pixelated icons

    Based on the screen captures show at this Neowin post - the UI is still flat, Metro looking.

    As has been noted, if the developers want this look and feel, this is what users get.

    If they want metro look, they should look at clean master, that is what I call a nice and polished GUI.
    Just looking for some CCleaner alterative and this one looks worthy, probably the same like in 360 TS.

    That is a very nice interface, yes. I do however like having the ability in CCleaner to check on or off individual sections to clean. I've been using Privazer a lot more than CCleaner lately though. It just seems like I get better results from it.

    CM is from China, so it won't be installed by many of us. Also CM installs a background service that never stops running.. :isay:

    Without reservation I'll second "xxJackxx's" post #7. It's updated frequently, efficient, it won't brick your system, its reputation is beyond reproach, and NO NAG screens. As freebies go, it's pretty much a no-brainer.

    I like Glary better personally, and Glary has a free lifetime license out there through Easeus.

    CCleaner Algorithms are very very slow... You know this if you work on a lot of nasty machines - which I do.. One machine had 930,000 temp files.. CCleaner effectively 'breaks' once you hit about 20-30GB of Temp files, and over 500,000 of them. It can take a half hour or more to clear them. Glary does the same thing in roughly 10-15 minutes. So I tend to prefer Glary, and make it an essential product on every machine I own. Kerish Doctor, and Glary are my staples..

    The best for speedy cleans is Bleachbit.. I've cleaned almost a million temp files with Bleachbit in less than 3 minutes. It has the fastest, most efficient coding for massive temp/junk, and speedy work.

    Some folks elsewhere are asking at what version was the METRO UI introduced.
    Me thinks it came into play at version 5.0 ?

    Service can be easily disabled, it will not start itself even when CM is run as admin and besides I prefer China/Russia products rather than US. CM is actually the only cleaning software in the world, that supports cleaning my browser by deafult, but no auto-cleaning like CCleaner, so I will have to pass for now, maybe next version.
    Yes, Glary is the only one, that does not forget about Windows task scheduled tasks at startup, other consider them essential, like user monitoring.
    But other than that, it does not offer anything special and its GUI looks old and confusing, if they would improve it, they would only benefit from it.

    I had no idea there was a Windows version of Clean Master. I just installed it, and it was very quick to find and delete 870MB of junk in my Windows 10 computer on which I had recently run Windows disk cleanup.

    It is possible I've seen the Chinese language version before or at least something similar, as Driver Genius (the Chinese program, not related to the English language one) comes bundled with a similar program.

    The interface is along the lines of recent releases of Baidu's PC Faster, and of course as you said 360 Total Security. I will keep Clean Master installed.

    I will keep it in mind for future reference. I recently did a malware cleanup on a computer, on which the malware had created an absolutely excessive amount of temporary files and folders, and deleting them all took many hours.

    I've seen malware do this - often.. Usually it creates fake chrome processes in temp folders, and drops off thousands of temp files over time.

    I forgot about this one, yes it looks even better, but it wants to remove too much, even files, that belongs to Baidu, also WinSxS files and other critical. :doubt:
