We’ve long been fans of system cleaning application CCleaner, even if you do have to uncheck the Yahoo toolbar during the installation process. And now, there’s a way to add 270 more applications to the supported list.

CCleaner Enhancer works with either the installed version or the portable version, and all it really does is modify an INI file to allow extra rules. Once you’ve specified the right folder and finished running the installer, you’ll be prompted to open CCleaner and there will be new rules on the Applications tab.

Update: Here’s a link to a mirror copy of the application, since the download site has died.

Update 2: The mirror copy won’t work either, since the site is down. What you’ll need to do is download this INI file from my test machine and put it into your CCleaner installation folder. Once you’ve restarted CCleaner, you’ll see the new items in the Applications tab.
