Run CCleaner With One Mouse Click

Click&Clean is a software program for users who like to optimize their workflow to the maximum. The software adds a link in the Windows Quick Launch bar that executes CCleaner with one click. CCleaner will automatically clean the system according to the settings that the user defined in the main application.

CCleaner is also the requirement obviously for anyone who wants to use Click&Clean since it won't do anything if CCleaner is not installed on the computer system. Besides placing a link in the Quick Launch Bar Click&Clean adds buttons to the web browsers Internet Explorer and Firefox which can also be used to quickly clean the system using CCleaner.

The advantage of using Click&Clean is minimal and probably only useful for optimizers and users who run CCleaner several times during a session and do not want to click more than once. Everyone else is better off using CCleaner independently.

    Thanks Martin!
    @ Gemini:

    Shortcut Properties
    Size: 773 bytes
    Size on Disk: 4,00 KB (4.096 bytes)

    …ok I have to admit…

    Alex: Are you forgetting that the default cluster size on NTFS drives is 4kB? So a shortcut is 4kB in size, not 1kB, and thus is the tool not 397 times as big :p

    Alex I do prefer shortcuts to using third party software and this is a classical case so thanks for pointing that out.

    Hi Martin, ok, the reason I posted this was that the size of the Tool [397kb] is 397 times larger than a shortcut for the same benefit…and putting the shortcut in the startup-folder would do the automatation-job, but for inexpirienced users – ok!

    Alex I suspected that there was probably a switch do to that in CCleaner. So the only benefit of using Click&Clean would be the browser buttons and probably a way of running CCleaner automatically for inexperienced users.

    well, even without that you could do this with CCleaner simply by creating a shortcut in your Dock or on your Desktop and inerserting die Argument “/AUTO” [without the quotes] behind the path as written on the About-Tab of the CCleaner-settings!
