The popular temporary file cleaner CCleaner has just been updated by the developing company Piriform. The latest iteration of CCleaner brings support for the first Windows 7 Service Pack, Internet Explorer user data cleaning, management and more.

The program is still provided as a portable version and installer, which both offer the same features and cleaning options. The interface has not changed at all, and some users may find it hard to spot any differences to previous versions of the software.

If they look at the individual cleaning options they find additional options for programs that were not supported in previous versions of the application, provided that they are installed. Included in CCleaner 3.04 are among others support for FeedDemon, Free Download Manager, Internet Download Manager and Comodo Dragon.

In addition, support has been added for Thunderbird's and SongBird's embedded browser and Opera's Icon Cache folder.

The detection of temporary files for programs like AVG Antivirus, Windows Media Player and Google Chrome has been improved as well.

Here is the full list of changes of the current release:

Added support for Windows 7 SP1.
Added Internet Explorer UserData cleaning and management.
Added Safari cookie management.
Improved Google Chrome detection.
Added Google Chrome JumplistIcons folder cleaning.
Added Opera Icon Cache folder cleaning.
Added support for Comodo Dragon.
Added support for SongBird embedded browser.
Added support for Thunderbird embedded browser.
Added Registry cleaner for Sound Events.
Improved Registry cleaning for Unused File Extensions.
Improved Registry cleaning for Application Paths.
Added environment variable support in Custom Locations.
Command line exporting of embedded INIs (/export [folder path]).
Added cleaning for Excel Viewer, FeedDemon, WinDiff and Last.FM, Free Download Manager, Internet Download Accelerator and Internet Download Manager.
Improved cleaning for AntiVir Desktop, AVG AntiVirus 10.0 and Windows Media Player.
Improved system file detection security.
Minor bug fixes.

Both a 32-bit and 64-bit edition are supplied with CCleaner, regardless if the user downloads the installer or portable version. CCleaner 3.04 can be downloaded from the developer website over at Piriform.

    This version also added quite agressive Opera cookies cleaning, logged me out of everything. :)

    I advise to uncheck that in settings if you use Opera.
