If you want your computer to run smoothly, then you need to take out the trash. You need to get rid of the files that are needlessly taking up space on your computer, you need to remove applications you don’t need, you need to remove invalid registry entries, and so on. The Piriform-developed application CCleaner is the perfect tool for the job. CCleaner is easy to use, does its job fast, provides support for a myriad of languages, and as of recently, it bumped its version number to 3.0

“Since its initial release in 2004, CCleaner has been the market-leading cleaning tool for Windows PCs. We are proud to announce the release of CCleaner v3.0! This release includes a multitude of features and changes, but don't worry we haven't changed the interface too much, so you'll still know how to use it,” announced the Piriform team in a blog post.

If you’re aching to get CCleaner 3.0, you can download the application straight from Piriform here. It will not take long for the download to complete, since it weighs in at a mere 2.7MB. It will not take long to install the application either. You can install CCleaner 3.0 on Windows 2000, XP, Vista or Windows 7 (32-bit and 64-bit editions) without a problem. And after you install CCleaner 3.0, you can use it free of charge for as long as you want – I thought it a good idea to remind you of that.

Before you go get CCleaner 3.0 and put it to the test, perhaps you would like to know what’s changed in this new version. Here are the main new things you can expect to get from CCleaner 3.0:

- A refreshed user interface and icon
- A new Drive Wiper tool that securely erases the contents or free space on a specified drive
- A new 64-bit native EXE designed specifically for 64-bit systems
- Better support for IE9
- Better support for Google Chrome
- Improved cleaning support for HTML5 database storage
- Additional cleaning support for Microsoft Silverlight Isolated Storage
- Three new environment variables
- New Intelligent cookie keeping feature
