Piriform to say goodbye to CCleaner’s Easy Clean mode and to replace it with an “even friendlier face” and to offer “more tools to boost your PC speed and security” in the coming weeks. Meet new “Health Check”, the feature is currently available to some users with CCleaner version 5.62 for testing.
Three months back Piriform added new Easy Clean feature in CCleaner for non-technical users for a more intuitive and easily understandable interface. The interface is currently set as a default screen in CCleaner window, the users can able to make Custom Clean as a default option in General Settings of CCleaner.
The Health Check which lies above Custom Clean, when launched on the first run, shows a series of screens about how the tool can help protect your privacy and improve security and performance when the user utilizes its tools to
- disable unwanted apps at startup
- update apps
- remove trackers of sites and advertisers
- clean junk
After scanning for PC health, the tool if detects any issues, presents a screen with the message “your PC feels under the weather” and lets your remove tracking cookies and junk. For the detected apps that need to disable, and for the apps, that need to be updated, you need to update to the CCleaner Pro version.
Like in the current version, the Preview version allows us to switch to Custom Clean from Health Check and expect the option to available when Piriform rolls out the feature to the public.
This Health Check interface and the name may not be final, as in the past Piriform offered Easy Clean for Preview with name Quick Clean. But Easy Clean is going away, reasons are unknown, the company says they’re making the interface change based on the user feedback.
Which tool do you use to clean junk on your PC?
