CCleaner Enhancer turbo charges CCleaner's crap removal powers

Among the must-have utilities on my USB flash drive is CCleaner -- it's been cleaning my system of useless, space-wasting cruft for years. Every now and then, however, I find myself wishing there was an easy way to make it tidy up after a few additional apps without having to manually set up a handful of custom rules.

Thanks to a post on Raymond.CC, I've now got a nice, simple way to do just that. It's a companion app called CCleaner Enhancer and it adds seventeen custom options to the applications tab including uTorrent, Flash Player 10, Virtual CloneDriver, Quicktime, and more.

You'll need to have CCleaner pre-installed to get any benefit from Enhancer, of course. I recommend downloading the toolbar-free slim edition from Piriform's builds page. Once you've done that, head on over and download CCleaner Enhancer to add even more file cleanup muscle!

On my Windows 7 x64 system I had to right click and run Enhancer as Administrator -- otherwise the program window simply freezes while trying to apply the custom rules.
