This tutorial will show you how to remove temporary files as well as delete temporary internet files using CCleaner. The second part shows you how to get a clean registry using the built-in free tools of CCleaner.
What is CCleaner
CCLeaner is a small and effective cleaning tool for windows and Mac operating systems that is generally considered safe to use. It scans for files and folders no longer needed by the system as well as temporary internet files, cookies and browser history and then removes it. In turn this also helps protect your privacy.

The first screen you see (below) should have the cleaner tab selected and you simply want to press the run cleaner button. The analyse button runs an analysis to see how much space you will save by cleaning up.
After pressing the run cleaner button you will be presented with a warning screen (below). It is worth noting before pressing OK that this program cleans up all temporary files including browser history and cookies.
Registry Cleaning (Advanced users only)
Modifying the registry can cause your system to become unstable or even unusable. Ensure you have a backup of important data.
