Smart Cleaning for your operating system (CCleaner Free)

To set up automatic cleaning for your computer:

  1. In CCleaner Professional, click Options, and then click Smart Cleaning.
  2. Select Enable Smart Cleaning.
  3. To specify what CCleaner will do when it detects that cleaning is required, select one of the following:
  • Prompt me to clean – CCleaner will display a balloon notification in the system tray asking if you want to clean your PC.
  • Automatically clean with notification – CCleaner will clean your PC, and then display a balloon notification in the system tray to show that it has done so.
  • Automatically clean on closing without notification – CCleaner will clean your PC silently.

Note: When automatic Smart Cleaning is selected, CCleaner will use the settings in the Cleaner section to clean your PC.
