Piriform CCleaner 5.09 gets optimized for Windows 10 64-bit, improved support for cleaning Edge

Piriform has updated its popular system cleaning app, CCleaner, to version 5.09, to add better support for Windows 10.


A month ago CCleaner v5.08.5308, was released, which added improved cleaning support for the new default browser, in Microsoft’s latest operating system, Microsoft Edge.

Piriform CCleaner 5.09 adds more improvements to this, as well as for the cleaning of Internet Explorer 11 DOMStore (the component which stores site-specific settings via cookies).

Usually, I never notice the changes to the GUI in the new version of the app, but this time I did observe a minor change. The latest version of the app, moves its name “Piriform Cleaner” from the center of the title bar, in v5.08, to the left corner of the title bar, right next to its icon. CCleaner 5.09’s release notes does specify that there are some improvements to the UI’s styling as well as speed, and that it adds the Windows app border. You can see the border by comparing the image featured above, and the one below.


The app has always been speedy to load, and switch to its different sections, so I am stumped about the new tweaks to its speed.

The highlight of the Piriform CCleaner 5.09 update however, is not merely in its cosmetic looks, but rather than what it has been designed for, tweaking and cleaning.  The app’s latest version is touted to have been optimized to work on Windows 10 64-bit systems. Well, it did work on 64 bit PCs running Windows 10 earlier too, but now it works better than before. Speaking of Windows 10, CCleaner 5.09 cab now clean the operating system’s registry more efficiently with enhanced scanning and cleaning improvements.

CCleaner 5.09, also has better cleaning support for the popular security software, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, as well as the painting and editing app, Paint.NET.

Additionally, Piriform reports that the latest version of its app patches in minor bug fixes, but does not detail on what they are. CCleaner now has improved localization and languages as well.

With the latest version, CCleaner now runs on all versions of Windows beginning with XP and above (XP/Vista/7/8/8.1/10) regardless of whether they are 32-bit or 64-bit. Download Piriform CCleaner 5.09  from the official website. The latest version is CCleaner v5.09.5343.

I tested the latest version and did find it to be slightly faster than 5.08, especially when it came to scanning for junk files, and cleaning them, though this may be because I did run the app a few days ago.
