CCleaner arrives in the Microsoft Store; now also updates, speeds up and cleans Windows 11
The new release of CCleaner comes packed with improved cleaning, updates for 9 million drivers and full support for Windows 11

London, United Kingdom, Dec 16th 2021: Free cleaning and optimization tool, CCleaner is now available on the new Microsoft Store, the built-in app store for Windows 10 and 11. The app holds a 4.5 star rating, comes in 80 languages and in this latest version, includes new cleaning definitions, support and security checks of now 9 million driver updates to ensure people’s safety when updating their drivers, and allow users to remove leftover junk files from the operating system, hundreds of third party programs and all major browsers.

Windows 11 fully supported and new cleaning definitions added

“Reviving older PCs and keeping brand-new Windows 11 devices healthy remains a top priority worldwide, especially during work-from-home times with people relying even more on their home PCs being fast and reliable,” says David Peterson, General Manager of CCleaner. “Making CCleaner available for Windows 11 ensures people can keep their brand-new devices running at an optimal performance.”

CCleaner’s new cleaning definitions now remove more junk and redundant files from widely popular apps: These include Edge Chromium and Firefox browsers, Windows log files, Slack and Windows Store versions of popular apps such as Spotify.

CCleaner Driver Updater safely updates Windows 11 PCs

Getting the latest drivers for their devices, such as printers or graphic cards, means people will get better performance, latest bug fixes, security patches, and access to new features. However, finding and installing drivers is often time-consuming and a complex task for beginners. 

The CCleaner team constantly updates its database with the most recent drivers, which has now grown to over 9 million drivers. CCleaner’s premium Driver Updater feature installs the most recent drivers which are often unavailable through built-in update mechanisms. To prevent security issues that could be caused by a driver update, every driver passes through security and stability tests before being rolled out to users. Driver Updater is only available for paid users of CCleaner Professional and is fully compatible with Windows 11.
