PolicyPak for Piriform CCleaner

It’s so easy for your users to clean junk and temporary files from their computer with just a few simple mouse clicks using CCleaner.

The problem is that they can zap out the wrong things as well in an instant, which will generate a call to the helpdesk, and maybe even a visit.

Suddenly this beneficial program is causing a lot of havoc.

That’s where PolicyPak comes in. We enforce and lock down the optimum settings values that you, the administrator, want them to have. PolicyPak sets and enforces expectations for your users’ applications, so that they get the same experience, every time they launch it.

Ensure your CCleaner settings are dictated and ensured using PolicyPak. Get those settings out there using Group Policy, SCCM or your own management tool.

Check out this video to see how it’s done using Group Policy:

Our PolicyPak software snaps-in to the Group Policy Editor and gives you a GUI interface which mimics the interface of CCleaner itself. You always want CCleaner to empty your Recycle Bin and delete your Temporary Files so make sure these selections are always checked using PolicyPak.

You don’t want your users managing the application updates for CCleaner or just about any application for that matter. PolicyPak allows you, the administrator, to manage updates for this and so many other applications. Simply uncheck “Automatically check updates to CCleaner” and lock this setting all the way down to the registry itself by using PolicyPak’s signature feature, ACL Lockdown. Simply right click on this or just about any setting and select “Perform ACL Lockdown” and even the savviest registry user cannot alter your delivered settings.

Make sure your users are prompted about registry items by always delivering a checked value for “Show prompt to backup registry issues.” Then use ACL Lockdown for this setting as well.

With PolicyPak, you’re the one in control.

Besides, once you’re using PolicyPak to manage CCleaner, you’ll also get to manage all your other enterprise desktop applications the same way: Flash, WinZip, Firefox, and any custom applications you have. They’re 100% included – absolutely free.

It’s all included when you’re a PolicyPak Professional customer.

PolicyPak was designed by Group Policy MVP Jeremy Moskowitz – who “wrote the book” on Group Policy, runs GPanswers.com, and lives and breathes Group Policy and enterprise software deployments and desktop lockdown.

When you’re ready to get serious about managing CCleaner, PolicyPak is ready for you.
