#1. TFC by OldTimer
TFC means ‘Temp File Cleaner’. It is a freeware and portable utility. You can clean your temp file in one or two clicks. I have personally used this tool and have case studies that this tool is very useful if you want to just clean your temporary files from your computer. So it could be a perfect free alternative for the ccleaner free version.
#2. Wise disk cleaner
It is another free alternative to cleaners with some more features. It also includes a free Disk De-fragmentation. This freeware utility also includes the option to schedule the cleaning. It cleans more junk then just the temporary files like applications traces etc.
In our study, we were only able to find the above 2 as the Free alternatives, if you know more then please share in the comments box. Next we are listing some Paid software to replace the Ccleaner.
#3 Glary Utilities

It has two editions – free versions as well as a Pro version like the Ccleaner. This could also be considered as the best alternative to Ccleaner.

#4. Avast Cleanup
This is the best and reliable paid alternative of Ccleaner. It is a product of Avast security which is well known for its popular Free Antivirus Software.
