CCleaner v5.00.5050 looks like ****

Recommended Posts

As you can see the checkmarks don't even look like checkmarks, the icons and pretty much everything looks pixelated, there is no window animations (like highlighted window and how windows animate when minimizing ) so I don't even know if I'm interacted with the program, is it out of focus? Who knows. Thanks Piriform for forcing this new Shileek new interface upon us.

As I pointed out in another similar thread:

 

I created this account just now for one reason and one reason only - to echo this sentiment that this UI has got to be one of the most disgusting UIs I've ever seen.

 

  • No Windows Aero
  • White title bar is just butt ugly and completely out of place with the greyness of the rest of the UI
  • Bottom grey bar is different grey than the left vertical bar's grey, in addition to being wasted space
  • No options to customize the UI in the settings
  • Solid colour buttons and solid colour background in general just look simplistic and lazy and 1990s
  • Title is centered rather than on the left, next to the program icon
  • Close button not flushly in corner
  • "Online help" button removed
  • Registry button used to use the Windows registry icon (a 4-sided 3x3 Rubik's cube, sort of) but now uses a generic four square icon which was completely made up and corresponds to nothing whatsoever, and the icon next to the "Registry Cleaner" header uses NINE cubes rather than the four in the left-hand icon!
  • UI does not meet user expectations based on 1-2 decades of standard convention in so many ways:
    • Items in the main Options window (e.g. dropdown boxes, checkboxes, etc.) inconsistently sometimes respond to mouseover and sometimes don't
    • "Windows/Applications" tabs make the selected tab smaller than the unselected tab
    • Lack of scroll bar center notches (or similar long established conventions) makes it ambiguous which portion of the bar represents the current scroll position
    • Fuzzy light grey text for checkbox items makes it seem like they're greyed out (unselectable)
    • Grey buttons on the right side in certain options menus, along with dull grey obscure text, makes them seem unusable/unselectable
    • Convention-defying checkbox categories (System, Windows Explorer, etc.) obscure the ability to click the category icon to select all items within that category (ditto for results window)
    • Resize dots on the bottom right have been removed, obscuring the ability to resize the window

It's important to emphasize that most of these problems are not matters of aesthetic preference, these are convention-defying changes that completely throw out the window everything that's been established from nearly two decades of UI and UX convention and make for a confusing, distracting, difficult, annoying, and anomalous user experience.

 

CCleaner 5.0 will make a fine addition to the PowerPoint slides of experts who illustrate to programmers what sort of UX/UI disasters to avoid. Perhaps the CCleaner developer(s) responsible for this train wreck would like to attend such lessons.

the site keeps "not responding" 

 

It does that every now and then. It's been an unresolved issue I've had since around 2007 so it's nothing new. Although it could be the IPB forum software.

more on topic, I hate the new GUI and request a revert.

 

If I had actually paid money for ccleaner I would be demanding a refund at this point.

At the risk of adding fuel to the fire; if you're not a Piriform customer, what grounds do you have to demand a UI revert? Piriform are giving you CCleaner for free. How it looks or behaves is entirely up to them.

Looks like some primitive Windows 98 software.  Very disappointing.

 

The previous versions look looked substantial.  This looks like a software created for a very low RAM computer. 

 

In case you are wondering.  I think the new look is terrible.

I truly hope they'll fix the border buttons to normal Windows size. This is ugly, otherwise, the new UI is fine. Win 8.1 and now the perfect Win 10, so the UI fits except the border buttons/size.

Agreed. The new UI looks horrible and makes the program very uncomfortable to use. Please let us have the option to switch to the old skin.

Make the settings to choose the skin or during installation, depending on the operating system puts a particular shell.

I agree with all the points that Aelius73 raises — the new UI is really ugly, particularly when you are using Windows 7 with its aero. 

 

Please give us the option of switching to the old UI.  Software should be pleasant to use, and it should blend with the windows of other software currently on the desktop.  The option would allows Windows 8 and Windows 7 users to choose the two different styles.
