BleachBit Portable 2.0 (disk, cache, history cleaner) Recently Released

Cleaning utilities, such as BleachBit, are great in freeing disk space, removing junk files, erasing your cache, deleting cookies and clearing your internet history. This all goes toward protecting your privacy.

BleachBit wipes clean 90 applications including Firefox, Internet Explorer, Adobe Flash, Google Chrome, Opera, Safari, and more. Beyond simply deleting files, BleachBit includes advanced features such as shredding files to prevent recovery, wiping free disk space to hide traces of files deleted by other applications, and vacuuming Firefox to make it faster. Better than free, BleachBit is open source.

It’s packaged in Format so it can easily integrate with the Platform. And it’s open source and completely free.

Popular Clean Master For Android Now Available For Windows

The cleaning utility that I use on my Android devices (smartphones and tablets) is Clean Master. I have come to rely on it to clean, optimize and protect my devices and have found it to be very reliable and fast.

Clean Master is by a company called cheetahMobile that has Android offerings such as Clean Master, CM Security, CM Browser and Battery Doctor. I endorse each of these apps and have them all installed on my Android devices.

This past week I stumbled onto Clean Master for PC and installed it to give it a try.

Clean Master

The PC version of Clean Master will scan for junk in your web cache, system cache, known software locations, registry, video and multimedia locations, social media locations and online gaming locations. The first scan that I performed Clean Master identified over 3 GB of junk; with subsequent scans identifying less that 500 MB of junk.

Under the settings you will find options to give you reminders to perform a scan based on a time period or when the junk on your PC accumulates to a specific point. You can also set Clean Master up to perform a scan each time you boot your PC.

Just like their Android offering of Clean Master, I am quite impressed; however, there is one thing I am seeing that is missing that I think is important. I think there should be a backup option available, especially when performing registry scans. Other than that, Clean Master for PC is going to be a winner; and, just like the Android version you will see the PC version only get better.

Clean Master for PC is compatible with Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 …

Extend the Cleaning Abilities of CCleaner with CCEnhancer

If you use CCleaner, the highly recommended system optimization, privacy and cleaning tool then you need to also install (and run) CCEnhancer.


CCEnhancer is a small tool that will add support for over 450 new programs into CCleaner.

Here’s how it works:

  1. You must have CCleaner installed on your PC to make this work.
  2. If CCleaner is installed on your PC, download and run CCEnhancer.
  3. When you run CCEnhancer, it will download the latest definition files and automatically add it to the “Applications” section of CCleaner.


That is all there is to it; however, I do recommend running CCEnhancer on a regular basis to keep the definition files up to date or set CCEnhancer to run when your computer starts.  What I do is run CCEnhancer anytime I want to clean my PC since it will automatically prompt me to start CCleaner after downloading the new definition files.

Note: You must use the “Run As Administrator” function if running Windows 7/Windows Vista with User Account Control enabled.
