How to use CCleaner

On the screen you are first brought to select ANALYZE. This will check for files or items you do not need. Once it has finished you can hit the other button RUN CLEANER. Let it work it’s magic and once it has finished you will see everything that has been removed.

This just scans Windows. If you look to the top left of your screen you can also run the cleaner for your applications.

Here is a video to show you in more detail how to install, run, and configure CCleaner if you are having issues with it:

How often you run the cleaner is up to you and how much you use your computer. Since I am on the internet a lot I typically run CCleaner before I use my computer everyday, or at least three or four times a week.
