CCleaner is an indispensable tool for many Windows users to clean up temporary files and other leftovers on the system. The core benefit here is that running the program regularly frees up storage space. Piriform, the developers of CCleaner, are offering a commercial CCleaner Network Edition for some time now for easier deployment and administration of the software in computer networks.
Two additional versions of CCleaner, CCleaner Home and CCleaner Business, are also available next to the free and network edition. And with the release of CCleaner Network Professional, users now have the choice between five different versions. Lets take a closer look at their differences:
The newly released Network Professional version of the software looks on first glance much like the Network Edition. The only difference to the network edition is inclusion of the company's disk defragmentation software Defraggler.
Interested users can download a trial version of the Network Professional version after filling out a form. The download link and product registration code will be send to the email address entered in the form. You won't find the software download anywhere else on the Internet, as you are asked to enter the product key during installation.
The program offers to scan the entire network for client PCs after installation. The trial version is limited to 500 clients which should be sufficient for the majority of trials.
You can then install clients on connected systems right from the admin client. Once done, you get access to both CCleaner and Defraggler in tabs This is true when selecting a Workgroup or a single client PC.
The program itself works like the CCleaner Network Edition with an additional program included in the package and manageable from the same admin interface.
Interested users find more information about the Network Professional version of CCleaner at the Piriform website.
