Speccy, and I’m saying this to make sure that everyone is on board and knows what the application does, is a free application that tells you what’s under the hood of your computer so to speak. It is a free system information tool offered by Piriform, tool that provides users with a lot of information on every piece of hardware their computer has.

Piriform, the privately owned UK software developer dedicated to creating top quality applications for Windows, has a more popular application to offer – CCleaner, the free app that easily and efficiently removes data that is needlessly taking up space on your computer. Back in February, Piriform updated CCleaner to version 3.04 and included support for Windows 7 SP1 (Service Pack 1), among other things. A detailed list of what’s new in CCleaner 3.04 is available here.
