CCleaner Can Now Repair Applications, Not Just Uninstall Them
Article by George Norman

Uninstalling applications is part of the wonderful functionality that Piriform’s CCleaner has to offer. But what if you don’t want to uninstall an application? What if you want to repair it? Until version 4.16, you couldn’t do that. You could uninstall applications, but you could not repair them. The recently released CCleaner 4.16 fixes this nuisance. With CCleaner 4.16, Piriform added a repair option to the Uninstall tool.

Check out the change log posted below to see what else CCleaner 4.16 for Windows has to offer.

Apple recently opened the gates to the OS X Beta Program, allowing 1 million people to download the Beta version of OS X 10.10 Yosemite. I bring this up because CCleaner is also available for Mac and because Piriform recently updated CCleaner for Mac as well. The updated version, CCleaner 1.08 comes with OS X Yosemite Developer preview compatibility.

Here’s the change log so you can see what else CCleaner 1.08 for Mac has to offer.
