Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
I want to explain to you how you use Ccleaner to keep your Computer in good condition.
What is CCleaner ?? Ccleaner is a program that remove the junk files (unnecessary files) from your computer and clean up the registry in a very safe mode.
You can choose what junk files you want to remove, it is categorized so it is easy to find out ex. if you need the cookies of your Internet Browser you can simply uncheck this feature.
Junk files are coming when you are using the computer, so many programs write temporary files to the computer and after they do not need them any more, but they need it only just at the moment they are being used. Time after time when you use the computer, programs writing new temporary files and the computer starting getting full of this temporary files, that means the computer are getting slower and slower and some times the programs comes up with strange errors not even the support Team can help you with. It is safe to remove the junk files when you are use a recommended program as Ccleaner (I will say it is the best on cleaner).
If you never have removed the junk files on your computer and you use Ccleaner, you will note the difference right after, the computer will run better/faster/more stable.
In Ccleaner there 2 things that are wery inportant to do and are completely safe to do:
1: Junk files cleaner
2: Registry cleaner
About Registry cleaner :
Registry cleaner are categorized too, you can see on the picture above how it search in different sections on the registry (Missing Shared DLLs, Unused File Extensions, ActiveX and Class Issues.... etc. You can choose to only take one category at the time or you can select as many you like.Once you have selected the category's(errors/junk) you want to search for, you press on the button down on the screen Called Scan for Issues. After you have done that, Ccleaner start searching in your registry for the checked issues. When it have done that, you can choose to repair the problems, just selecting the Fix the selected Issues. You have the possibility to choose what files you want to delete first. After this you can make a backup of the files before you delete them, in case of any errors you can always restore the files.
This is the first registry cleaner I did start with, I still use it once a week and others registry cleaner (more deep search) I do use once a month.
I can fully recommend Ccleaner as registry cleaner, and I did never had problem with it. It is a light registry cleaner and you can safely use it.
Registry's errors are coming when you are upgrading/updating/uninstall and more in the category of software. Many programs are not so good to clean after them self when they uninstall their product, therefore there are a lot of missing registry items and this are making the computer unstable and slow and more. Using reliable registry cleaners can make your computer running as new again :O)
You can find CCleaner here:
If you want a portable version you can use on your USB storage you can download one of these versions :
CCLEANER IS FREE.
One last note : I have been reading in the internet that CCleaner junk cleaner has cleaned Microsoft Office 2003 to good, so they was needed to reinstall the Microsoft Office 2003 again, But my experience is my friend did use it on a destroyed Microsoft Office 2003 and it is running again now without problems, so I let it up to you, if you want to use the feature to clean Office 2003(junk files), you can simply check/uncheck the possibilty. This is only on the junk files and not on the registry files there maybe is a problem, hmm
Have a nice computing.
