Cleaner for LabTech

We Empower the Global Management of CCleaner


CCleaner for LabTech is a CCleaner manager that deploys, licenses, analyzes, cleans, stores data inside LabTech, displays computer level and global level statistics of each PC and uninstalls (de-enable) CCleaner all from a simple set of consoles. Let me show you some of what we are doing.


This is the Computer level interface

With very simple controls, you can Analyze a PC which will do several things.

  • Checks for and processes old log just in case they had been missed by previous jobs
  • Verifies the licensed install of CCleaner and installs if needed
  • Sets system to Enabled in Global Manager
  • Analyzes system
  • Retrieves all log details needed and stored data into LabTech
  • Refreshes the results tab

Cleaning will do.

  • Verify CCleaner install
  • Clean system
  • Retrieves all log details needed and stored data into LabTech
  • Refreshes the results tab




The results tab displays the results from the last scans and cleans and displays that data in both graphical and dataset  views.


Registry Cleaner will do

  • Scan Registry based on user setting
  • Create a full backup of the root registry keys
  • Clean selected results from registry




You can manage individual CCleaner  cleaning directives using Bulk Config, each system managed can have separate sets of added rules to customize the cleaning experience for each PC under management.

Bulk Configurations will do

  • Add, edit and delete CCleaner configuration directives per PC




Global Manager

The Global Manager is the heart of the system. This is where you configure the global settings for each computer, control the master on/off switch, manage your licenses, enable your computer systems for auto installs and auto cleans, deal with failed CCleaner installs and view the data from all clients combined.






The CCleaner engine manages the temp and junk files for hundreds of applications. In fact there is so many application that CCleaner works on that it was found to be impractical to try to stuff all that in a plugin. We still want to deliver that flexibility but in a simple and easy manner for you to manage. To do this we created a Bulk Configuration manager that allows you to add and remove any setting that CCleaner supports.  These get applied to all clients enabled for CCleaner automation.




We have provided a Failed CCleaner Install Manager that will allow you to identify problem systems and from here you can reinstall and see the direct output of the efforts from behind the scenes.





We provide a 30 day look back window to see overall where and how the storage is being consumed and reclaimed.







We provide long term history views into several key aspects of the data being collected picking out the high end consumers by client, computer and application type for both the Analyzers and the Cleaners.





Now let’s talk a little about behind the scenes, What you do not see is the back-end processes that are working to automate the entire process. When you turn Cleaner for LabTech on it starts a set of processes that manage the deployment, licensing scanning and cleaning based on your configurations. As Cleaner for LabTech starts its tasks it is ticketing its time spent and recording those results in the tickets. This adds the value and tractability to the work performed by Cleaner.

    This looks like it will be a great plug-in. Will it require a CCleaner license or does it leverage the free version?

  2. Andrew Birch says:

    Aye, looking forward to it. I have a MSP edition of CCLeaner and can do some testing for you. Let me know.

  3. We have now release build .472 which has resolved some minor display issues and added a new plugin updater feature so manual upgrades of the plugin can now be automated.

    We also now offer a free 30 day demo of the product by signing up and selecting the Free Demo from the dropdown list on the signup page.
    If you were on the fence then give it a try on us.
