Piriform updates CCleaner and offers 66% off Professional Plus Edition

We have yet another special going for a product I’m quite impressed with. CCleaner is a great app for sweeping away all the junk Internet traces and cookies that websites are so fond of spewing across our hard drives and for most people the free version gets the job done. And let’s not forget there is also the free version of Defraggler and Recuva. If you recall I’ve had to call up the services of Recuva once or twice in my fits of cleaning up my hard drive. And again,there are free versions of all these apps. Free versions that don’t have any real limitations or ads. So why pay for a full version when the free version is perfectly fine?

Well, hard to argue with that, except, nothing in life is free. Someone has to spend the hours writing the code that makes CCleaner tick. And while you can certainly keep using it for free without fear of it suddenly breaking or nagging the hell out of you, the paid version does offer the nicety of silent background updates, scheduled maintenance and monitoring. I also believe that if you keep using something more than a few times, the honorable thing to do is give a tip of the hat to the author and hand over a few coins as a thank you for a job well done. It also helps to ensure that there will indeed be future versions that we all can benefit from.

I have the Professional Plus edition installed and it runs on a regular basis. The crap is cleaned off my drives, those same drives are defragged and the couple of times I’ve made a mistake, I’ve been able to pull files back from the breach. That to me is worth a few bucks.

And not to be outdone, Piriform is offering the complete suite of tools at a 66% discount. You can get all 4 apps for $32. That is less than $10 a piece and I think it’s safe to say the apps are worth at least, no?

So if you’ve benefitted from CCleaner you can upgrade to the full version which includes some nice monitoring features and you get that happy feeling of knowing you did a good thing.
