    Good disk cleanup app for windows 10


    I use Advanced Disk Cleaner, free version on my Vista PC, but apparently they don't offer a Win10 v. I've heard that CC Clean (I think that's what it's called ) is a good one. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Fred,
    A word of warning.
    CCleaner is what I use since day one. It is an effective program.
    BUT, I would suggest that you stay away from using the Registry option listed on the left side.

    There's no truly safe way to clean your Registry, only safer ways

    +1 on both responses. Ccleaner. Been using it for years sans problems. Frequent updates to keep up with changing browsers etc...

    Leave the registry alone. (IMO)

    Additionally Intelligent Cookie Scan in Ccleaner is nice if you want to keep your log in information for common Sites. it won't get them all but it does pretty well. (it's on the "Options" tab on the left panel)
