Since the launch of Windows 11, Microsoft is making significant changes to the Microsoft Store. Some relate its policy with a more open approach triggering some “enthusiasm” from developers.

The giant’s new position is at the origin of renewed interest in this distribution channel. Over the past few months, several top app developers have released their creations on this store. One of the latest software to make an appearance is the popular, CCleaner. This is a Windows maintenance and cleaning utility. It acts at different levels including the registry to remove superfluous and polluting data.

And if you upgrade your license, you can automate it running in the background with smart rules. It is the ultimate all-in-one system utility.

CCleaner has become THE must-have APPLICATION for Windows PC users. Unfortunately, he faced various more or less important problems. Some have proven problematic enough to convince some users to stop using it. He suffered from a loss of confidence.

Last year it was the target of PUA warnings on Windows devices while Windows Defender Antivirus completely blocked it. Added to this were unsatisfactory statements from Microsoft downplaying its interest in typical Windows maintenance.
