    "I've used Ccleaner for a few years now, and have found it useful for clearing cookies, cache, and duplicate files. Duplicate Cleaner is a similar product that is especially geared toward removing duplicate image and media files. The fact that it's PC-only means I can't use the tool on my home computer, though I will try it out on the PC at work. "
