Default Ccleaner free download?

Hello! I've been a subscriber to Gizmo's newsletter for several years but haven't been here more than once or twice; I usually go back through all the past copies of the newsletter... So I've gotten a lot older and a little bit wiser and have read a few of the great debates (or soap boxes, lol!) here for cache cleaners; other sources have recommended Ccleaner as well but I wanted to see what Gizmo says! In my reading however, I haven't found a link for a free download... does one exist or am I misinterpreting what I've read?

I'm sorry to begin another thread when I'm guessing the information is here... I'm simply not looking in the right place, as usual.

I have a 4.5 year old Gateway laptop which is my first computer, with Windows XP and I'm self taught so please be gentle!!

Your help will be greatly appreciated.

Debbie

Go to either of these links:
http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner
http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download/standard


They're both under the "priority support" box.

doxideb, those links are good but let me add this one where you can
get the slim version(no toolbar).

Thank you, J.L. & Bo!

I'll try the version with no toolbar first and hopefully be successful! My MSN has components of IE7 which it requires to run, however I prefer to use my MSN Explorer via my Verizon Broadband when using Google or other searches; bing is a joke IMO. But for the majority of my usage, I use Firefox because my forums of choice are graphic intense (Paint Shop Pro) and FF is much more efficient. I mention that because as a part of my AOL, there's a One Click Fix where I can clear my cache but it specifies IE only. Since I'm bouncing back & forth, I need to make sure I'm clearing everything.

I'll be back here more often now that I know (as in reminding myself!) that I have this as a great resource with helpful people. Looks like I have a lot of reading to do!

Again, many thanks

Debbie
