Improved CCleaner v4.0

Piriform has updated its CCleaner application to version 4.0. Besides improved graphics, better Windows 8  compatibility and some new features, the latest version 4.0 includes two new tools including a Duplicate File Finder.

 Ccleaner in my opinion is the best registry cleaners for Windows. It is one of the most preferred junk temp file cleaner and free registry cleaning software  for clearing disk space  and removing invalid registry entries from your Windows PC.


1.       New improved graphics and icon.
2.       Improved internal architecture for better performance.
3.       New Duplicate File Finder tool.
4.       New System and Browser Monitoring (Pro Version).
5.       Optimized and improved Registry Cleaning.
6.       Added cleaning for Avast Anti-Virus 8, Adobe Photoshop CS6, Samsung Kies & Real Player.
7.       Improved Drive Wiper performance.
8.       Optimized Startup item detection algorithm.
9.       Optimized 64-bit builds on Windows 7 and 8.
10.    Many performance improvements and bug fixes.

Drag a Folder or File Name to the DOS Prompt in Windows 7

 If you are  working in DOS prompt in Windows 7 and need to add the name of a file or folder to the command line with its complete path, you can save some typing by opening an Explorer window and navigating to the desired file or folder. Left-click it and hold, then drag the file to your prompt and it will instantaneously appear.
As a bonus, if the folder or file contains a space, the inserted value will be placed inside quotes.
