CCleaner is a free system optimization and privacy tool. It removes unused files from your system – allowing Windows to run faster and freeing up valuable hard disk space. It also cleans traces of your online activities such as your Internet history. But the best part is that it´s fast (normally taking less that a second to run) and FREE! :), as described by the publisher. Below is a screenshot/image of CCleaner.
