    I was wondering, what's difference between CCleaner Free and Home ?

    Technical support I think. It's definitely not the most popular option, which is obviously a marketing gimmick.

    Official Tech Support I guess :)

    Edit: J_L beats me :( :D
    Most popular option? In their dreams ;)

    I'm considering downloading CCleaner for the first time. I was wondering if it was difficult to use if you're an average user & if it has disadvantages. Like could I accidentally wipe my hard drive with it or tear a gap in the space-time continuum or something drastic?

    I would recommend just using the cleaner option. the cleaner option just safely cleans out temporary files.
    the tools menu does have some potentially dangerous options such as erasing a partition or drive. I wouldnt reccomend the registry cleaner because I dont reccomend anyone to use any registry cleaners. they always seem to do more harm than good.

    I would say No. Not you anyway ;)

    The GUI is very simple to use, you check and uncheck the boxes :)

    It doesn't even have that feature, only free space is wiped if you opt-in.

    I dunno, I've done some pretty stupid things in the past. I once downloaded & used RealPlayer, Norton AV & Spybot Search & Destroy!

    OK, simple is good. ;)

    Hi Daveski17,

    Use the Slim version (see my previous post) to avoid toolbar that you maybe don't want.

    It annoys me no end end when supposedly trustworthy companies try to mislead their customers, and this for me is a very good reason to stick with the free version and not pay for support.

    I take that last bit back, it should be a good reason to avoid using CCleaner or any of Piriform's products either free or paid.

    Do you honestly have to be so strict on free software? They need money, and marketing is simply a common way of getting it.
    Be glad something so effective and clean is even available in the first place.
