CCleaner Cleans Your Slow Computer For Free

by Sherry Riter in Blog tips  ,Website Tools

If it takes you a year to decide to listen to me about CCleaner, that’s okay because it took my mother a year. Of course, she will say that it doesn’t matter how long it took her to start using CCleaner because she’s using it now. (That’s just rationalizing her stubborness.)


This is NOT a paid post. I actually use CCleaner and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! Not only is it easy to use, but it really does a great job at keeping my computer clean.
