CCleaner 2.0 beta can be run from a USB thumb drive

My son and I have been using CCleaner to clear off temporary files, cookies, and unused registry settings for a few years now. The program is updated often and the updates are usually incremental.

Now it looks like the folks behind CCleaner have pushed out a beta of version 2.0, with some exciting new features:

* CCleaner can be run from a USB thumb drive
* Take it with you when visiting your parents for the holidays.
* Faster analyzing and cleaning
* Select files, folders, and registry keys to ignore
* Rebuilt in C++ to support 64-bit compatibility and Windows Vista compatibility
* Redesigned GUI

The fact that you can now carry CCleaner with you on a USB drive is a nig step forward. The file takes up almost no space at all, making CCleaner a great addition to your portable toolkit.

This is beta software, so not everything works as well as it could but CCleaner should have that fixed soon. Best of all CCleaner is free and the software does NOT contain any Spyware, Adware or Viruses....

You can download the Beta here.
