The biggest difference between the Ccleaner program and the Ccleaner slim version is that the slim version does not install the toolbar that the full Ccleaner has. The slim version has many of the larger program's features, which also includes the ability to clean your registry, which may be littered with files from apps and programs that you have long uninstalled. The software stands alone on your system and doesn't require internet access or for you to log in. Plus, most of its cleaning tools and functions are self-explanatory. The cleaning program is also far faster than its closest competitors.
Virus and malware manufacturers will often add files to your computer one piece at a time. If you frequently clean your computer with something such as the Ccleaner slim program, then it is harder for viruses and malware programs to slowly infest your computer. In addition, the removal of older files and temp files may help your computer run a little quicker, and may even help reduce loading times and app freezes.
Hello, are there any older versions availiable from CCleaner (slim)? I've got an old Embedded PC (without SSE functionality which maybe forces the error) that runs with v.5.25 (slim). Updating to 5.29 (slim) would not work. CCleaner fails to start. System is Windows XP 32bit.
I've found some of the versions at another "filehistory"-website, also the slim-ones. For your notice the version the old machine is able to run is 5.26.5937. After this there must be a codechange that prevents the old AMD-embedded-CPU from running ccleaner.
The graphics card to my first gen Mac Pro died. While the new retail options for Mac graphics card are pretty slim, they are all PCI Express 2.0. Wikipedia's entry on PCI Express says they are supposed to be backwards compatible with v1.1 and v1.0 motherboards (restricted bandwidth, of course). Has anyone tried this? --184.108.40.206 (talk) 15:14, 15 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply] 2b1af7f3a8
