CCleaner Introduces ‘Health Check’ To Help Users Effortlessly Keep Their PCs in Shape
Health Check brings together CCleaner’s cleaning and tuning tools in one place, making it easier to keep PCs fast, clean and secure

London, United Kingdom, 4 March, 2020 – Piriform Software Ltd, a global leader in system optimization software, today announced the launch of its new ‘Health Check’ feature in its flagship CCleaner product. Health Check unifies CCleaner’s most popular optimization and cleaning tools within one simple-to-use interface, making it easier and quicker than ever before to keep PCs running at optimal level.

Health Check focuses on improving speed, space, privacy and security to help extend the life of PCs, and optimize their performance. The feature performs the following tasks in just a few clicks:

  • Privacy: Deletes browsing history and cookies that accumulate over time, to keep online activities private and prevent users from being followed by ads or displayed higher prices.
  • Space: Deletes junk files, for example, temporary files, that are continuously created as PC users browse the internet or run applications. This creates valuable space and makes room for photos, videos, and more.
  • Speed: Speeds up the computer’s boot time by identifying and safely disabling unnecessary startup items.
  • Security: Checks for the latest updates, and safely updates applications in one go, to give users the latest stability, feature, and security updates, which are essential to protect a computer.

Paul Yung, VP Products at CCleaner, commented, “CCleaner’s interface was originally developed with more advanced PC users in mind. As the product has grown in popularity, with over 2.5 billion downloads to date, we want to make it as easy as possible for all of our users to take advantage of the software’s full functionality. Health Check does just this, giving users of any technical ability, the choice, confidence and control of how they can keep their machine clean, safe and fast with just a few clicks.”

Health Check sits alongside CCleaner’s original cleaning screen ‘Custom Clean’, and will be the default view for CCleaner when it is first opened, replacing the previous Easy Clean feature following feedback from users on how it could be enhanced. Users can choose to set either Health Check or Custom Clean as their home screen. No changes have been made to the familiar Custom Clean interface so advanced users can still tweak the interface and adapt their cleans as they require.

Health Check is available on all versions of CCleaner (Free, Professional, Pro Trial). The full features and benefits of Health Check are available on a free trial basis for 14 days. CCleaner can be downloaded here:
