Using the Tools menu in CCleaner Network

Controlling which programs start with Windows:

  1. In the Network Tree, select the group or endpoint.
  2. In the right pane, select the CCleaner tab, then select the Tools tab and the Startup tab.
    • In the Startup section, you'll see a list of all items that have been set to start automatically with Windows. Those that have been disabled will be grayed out and will state "No" in the Enabled column. For groups, the number in brackets after "Yes" indicates how many Endpoints have the item set to auto-start on boot.
  3. Do one of the following:
    • To prevent a program from starting with Windows, select the program entry and click Disable.
    • To prevent a program from starting with Windows and to remove it from the auto-start list, select the program entry and click Delete.
    • To re-enable a program previously disabled, click Enable.
    • To save a list of startup items, click Save to text file.
  4. You can select multiple startup items by using CTRL+Click.
  5. Repeat for all desired startup items.

Note: Changing startup settings for a group will affect all endpoints in the group who have the auto-starting software installed.

Uninstalling software from your endpoints:

  1. In the Network Tree, select the group or endpoint.
  2. In the right pane, select the CCleaner tab, then select the Tools tab and the Uninstall tab.
    • In the Uninstall section, you'll see a list of all of the installed programs on the endpoint. If selecting a group, there will be a Count column showing how endpoints that program is installed on.
    • Software that does not have a .MSI-based uninstaller may not be uninstalled using this tool and so will be grayed out.
    • Below the list will be a summary of the details that can be detected about the program, such as publisher, install date, etc.
  3. Do one of the following:
    • To uninstall a program, click the program, then click Uninstall. This can only be done for programs with a .MSI-based uninstaller available.
    • To rename the entry for a program (for instance, to something more clear or distinct if there's multiple versions of a program installed), click the program, then click Rename Entry.
    • To delete the entry for a program without uninstalling the program itself (for instance, to remove the ability for a program to be easily uninstalled by employees), click the program, then click Delete Entry.
    • To save a list of installed programs, click Save to text file.
  4. You can select multiple startup items by using CTRL+Click.
  5. Repeat for all desired programs.
