Windows 10 Pro (x64)

There is an add-on for CCleaner called CCEnhancer.

It adds even more cleaning options.

There is a post in the above thread on how to do an "extended disk cleanup" which may/may not be beneficial.

If you are concerned about optimum performance and files, consider a clean reinstall ever so often. Though that may be considered an extreme.
