"Configuring Piriform Software To Be Fully Automatic"

Recommended Posts

Getting Started

 

This guide will be focused on easily setting up CCleaner and Defraggler to be fully automatic on your Windows based PC.

 

If you don't have CCleaner or Defraggler' date=' You can download them from the official download pages below.

 

[u']System Requirements:[/u] Runs on Microsoft Windows 8, 7, Vista and XP. Including both 32-bit and 64-bit versions.

 

Download CCleaner | Download Defraggler

 

CCleaner Guide

 

(Images in this guide are hidden in Spoiler tags, Be sure to click Show Spoiler to see them.)

 

1. Let's open up the CCleaner interface.

 

2. Click on the 'Options' tab.

 

3. Tick the box that says "Run CCleaner when the computer starts"

What does this do? - The next time you power on your PC (After a restart or shutdown) and login to Windows. CCleaner will automatically perform a clean that won't require any interaction from you.

 

Advanced Guide To Auto Customization

 

The above step is simple and straight forward, However we can further customize what we would like CCleaner to do automatically, To do this, We are going to use Windows Task Scheduler to access advanced options.

 

I have uploaded my own Task Scheduler file for you to use. This can be easily modified to your likings, This is done to save time and a bunch of steps.

 

Download | CCleaner Auto.xml (6.0KB)

 

1. Open Task Scheduler. This can be done easily by pressing the Windows Key + R key on your keyboard. This will open the Run Window, Enter the code below inside the Run Window and click OK.

 

control schedtasks

2. Inside the Task Scheduler Library Window. Right click and click Import Task. Select CCleaner Auto.xml that you downloaded.

After opening CCleaner Auto.xml, A Window like this should show.

To make things easier for the both of us, I've already created some Trigger presets that can be accessed by clicking on the Triggers tab.

3. These Triggers are all disabled, You can choose to enable any selected one by clicking on either Trigger and then clicking the Edit button.

 

For this guide I'm going to choose "Daily - At 8:00PM every day" and Enable it by ticking the Enabled box inside the Edit Trigger Window.

Further Configurations We Can Apply

Information About Command Lines / Arguments (Optional)

 

You'll notice in the Actions tab I have added 3 command lines to the end of CCleaner.exe

What do they mean?

 

/AUTO - Runs the cleaner upon loading and then closes the application.

/S - Runs the program in Silent mode, Meaning the interface of CCleaner won't show or disturb you.

$(Arg0) - UAC (User Account Control) bypass. So you won't have to see the UAC window or click Allow if you have UAC enabled, A must have for AUTO Triggers.

That covers the CCleaner part of this guide.

Just curious: why are you not using direct links to the download pages, instead of dubious redirects?

 

I for one will never click on a link that I don't know where it takes me.
