Piriform Celebrates 1 Billion Downloads Of CCleaner, The #1 Optimization Tool For Windows And Mac

NEW YORK, Dec. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Piriform, the leading provider of computer optimization software, is proud to announce its award-winning CCleaner has surpassed an extraordinary one-billion downloads. CCleaner is the world's favorite PC optimization tool, and in the eight years since it was first released it has been installed on approximately one quarter of the world's PCs, across 200 countries and more than 45 languages.

Piriform has seen the number of CCleaner users increase rapidly over the last year, and the product is being installed on more than 10 million new PCs each month.

"We're very excited to have reached the one-billion downloads milestone. This is a huge achievement for everyone at Piriform, and thanks go out to our millions of users," said Piriform CEO Guy Saner. "We're looking forward to improving our existing products, and providing our users with some exciting new products in the New Year as we extend into mobile and cloud-based solutions."

CCleaner helps the user's computer run like new by removing unnecessary files, including unused and temporary files.  It clears Internet and download history, eliminating digital "traces" that can compromise privacy, resulting in a faster, cleaner and more secure computer, with maximized hard disk space. 

Piriform also offers more advanced CCleaner software packages for small business and enterprise environments, including CCleaner Professional; CCleaner Business Edition; CCleaner Network Professional; and CCleaner Tech Edition. These editions include additional features, such as remote deployment, management, scheduling, network reporting, the ability to clean across profiles and much more. These and other professional iterations of CCleaner are available to end-users through technology resellers (VARs) or MSPs.
