    CCleaner v5.79.8704

    This version includes new, optional cleaning of cached files in Slack and some minor security improvements.

    Wipe Free Space option re-enabled in this version

    We’re committed to providing the safest PC cleaner on the market. We recently disabled Wipe Free Space while we investigated reports of this feature wiping more than free space. After testing this feature thoroughly, we weren’t able to reproduce the behavior described or find any faults in this feature, so we are re-enabling it with some diagnostics reporting to catch any situations like those described.

    Protecting our customers

    We want everyone to enjoy using the latest and safest version of CCleaner, including people who may not have updated in some time. We are continuing to bring customers on very old versions up to date so they can clean their machines safely. (Find out more)

    Cleaning

    Added new cleaning of Slack cache (this optional setting does not wipe message history)
    We have re-enabled the ‘Wipe Free Space’ feature with new diagnostics information to catch a bug that was reported but not reproduced in our thorough testing
    We have added optional debug logging to try to catch a rare ‘rule duplication’ bug

    Security

    We fixed some instances where the app was using HTTP instead of HTTPS

    HiBit Uninstaller v2.6.10

    this program is way better than Revo Uninstaller, it has 0 false positives compared to Revo which could literally destroy a perfectly working computer

    I was beginning to wonder if something happened since this software had not seen an update in many months.
