    Thanks for the heads up. Will it work also on an Android device?

    I don't know. But, SD Maid does a much better job at cleaning junk files than CCleaner.

    CCleaner is only available for Windows so that is another limitation currently.

    You mean cloud? I do recall at least an Android and OS X version as well.

    Neat!

    I can see 3-PC limit on free version (kinda) but I find the 10-PC limit on Professional a bit low. I suppose one louder would be an Enterprise...?!

    I purchased the unlimited home subscription immediately. I'm tired of manually cleaning up 10 machines around here each week.

    So far so good, the first policy push automatic cleanups happened just a few minutes ago without a hitch. The product has a ton of features and seems to work like a remote management product for MSPs where you an install/uninstall stuff, check on system status, etc. VERY handy!

    each week!? I only do it monthly: patch Tuesday.

    You could also run it with the /AUTO switch in Task Scheduler...for free!
    cf. https://www.piriform.com/docs/ccleaner/advanced-usage/command-line-parameters

    I must have seen an outdated price sheet; I see the unlimited events per household subscription on the home page (which wouldn't be friends and family in one household--well, not for very long they wouldn't be...heh).

    I know I can do it automatically with Ccleaner and/or a variety of other tools. But I like the granular control, the notifications and the overall 'awareness' it provides. I can remove/install things, monitor the hardware, and look for 'events' that may be questionable. It allows me to pare down startups and see what was installed recently, etc.

    It's worth $49 a year for me to be able to monitor a dozen or so machines without actually touching them. Have you tried it? It's extremely granular and powerful. I like the control it offers so I can push policies out to all of the machines for family.

    How it is different from using Teamviewer to maintain a computer? Just asking not teasing. Would like some feedback before trying it out. ;)

    Well that's a lot more than just CCleaner. It's like, Command & Control Crap Cleaner--CCCCleaner! :D

    I'm confused. https://www.ccleaner.com/Pricing says "up to 10 computers" and "household". I don't like confusing, contradictory things. Ahhhh! o_O

    How is impeding someones use by logging into team viewer to take control and run various things and check various things out even remotely similar to this? As I typed this I noticed it fired off the cleanup for the 8 machines I have linked already. Checking the console I noticed a couple of startups on a couple machines I didn't want so I disabled them from the console with a single click - without touching the systems. You really need to realize this is like CCleaner with a slimmed down Labtech integrated.

    As for how many machines it clearly states 'unlimited' per household. The cap is 10 without notifying support to get more unlocked so they can verify they are your household computers. But all of the advertisements say 'unlimited' specifically for the pro version. I assume they felt 10 would be enough without anyone complaining or abusing it.
