A month after Microsoft rolled out Windows 8.1 Preview to the public, Piriform updated its CCleaner application so it provides support for the operating system. CCleaner also supports IE11 and Opera 15.

So if you’re using Windows 8.1 Preview and you want to clean it, go get CCleaner 4.04.
The latest CCleaner edition for Windows is available for download right here on FindMySoft.


On Thursday, the 25th of July, Piriform announced that it released a CCleaner update: version 4.04. The interesting thing about CCleaner 4.04 is that it adds support for Windows 8.1 Preview, Internet Explorer 11, Opera 15, Comodo IceDragon (a secure Firefox-based web browser), Sony Vegas Pro 12.0, Bing Search, Bing Finance, Bing Maps, Bing News, Bing Sports and Bing Travel.

On top of that, the update improves some existing functions (Chrome cleaning, detection of Chromium-based browsers, detection and cleaning of portable browsers, monitoring notifications) ads support for Hindi, makes minor improvements to the interface, and fixes various bugs.

You can check out the CCleaner 4.04 changes list on the official Piriform blog here.

The release of CCleaner 4.04 comes about a month after the release of Windows 8.1 Preview, a version that introduces new apps, new services, and new ways to personalize your PC. Here’ s a look at its main new features:
  • The ability to sync customizations, apps and files across all your Windows 8.1 devices.
  • The Start button that many Windows 8 adopters complained about is back.
  • Shutdown and Restart options have been added to the Start menu.
  • Dynamic Start screen backgrounds and new tile resizing and sorting options.
  • The All apps screen is easier to access.
  • The Snap feature is no longer limited to 2 apps; you can Snap as many apps as your display can accommodate.
  • Windows Store apps can be Snapped across multiple monitors.
  • A preview version of Internet Explorer 11 is included.
  • A completely redesigned Windows Store.
  • Visual Studio 2013 Preview and .NET 4.5.1 Preview.
  • Bing is positioned as a development platform.
  • SkyDrive is integrated into the OS.
  • Several built-in Metro-style apps have been updated.
  • There are also a few new apps and new utility apps.
  • Business-oriented features: NFC tap-to-pair printing, Wi-Fi Direct printing, Miracast wireless display, broadband tethering, improved VPN capabilities.

“With Windows 8 we built a new Windows, reimagined from the chipset to the experience. It was an ambitious vision, and with Windows 8.1 we refine it,” said Larson-Green, corporate vice president of Windows. “Windows 8.1 will support the widest range of tablets and PCs and demonstrates how responsive we can be for customers. The preview we are releasing today is an important step for partners around the world that are building the next generation of Windows devices and apps.”
