CCleaner v3 Icons


Recommended Posts

I feel the same! :blink:

CCleaner icon became too contrast and has quite strong edges. Old icon was soft for look.

Icons inside CCleaner (tabs) became too similar.


Please return old large icons, small ones are ok.

You just said it. I agree so much with this.


The old icons of version 2 were so much better, they were easier and neater to the eye. The new ones just remind me of old icons with sharp edges on Windows 98 or some older system. I was actually surprised when I upgraded cause the icons downgraded in style.


The main icon of CCleaner that you see on the desktop, I think they should bring it back to what it looked like on version 2 because it has so much contrast and sharpness to it so it ain't that pretty.


With newer systems right now, they should have pursued their use of softer and neater icons to match with the newer feel of newer UIs.


I actually suggested they should have given it a more aero or MS Office 2010 feel which is very neat.

I love computer maintenance tasks.

Some of my favorite programs:

Wordpad -basic word processing

Notepad - temporary clipboard and basic scripting module

Windows Media Player 12- video, music and online radio player

Windows Media Center - live TV, local FM radio

CCleaner- handy computer maintenance tool


If something fails to work after using the registry cleaner, use SYSTEM RESTORE.

I liked to previous icons better too, but I've rarely known a software developer to change the appearance once they've made their mind up, especially on a freebie. I hope they do switch back, but I'm not holding my breath. :lol:

I like most of the improvements made in CCleaner v3, but I think the icons got a downgrade. Anyone else feel the same? I liked the old icons much better. Hopefully, they will revert back or create some better ones.

I like the new icons, but not as good as the old ones.

They seem to have lost something.


When I look at old + new side by side, the new obviously has greater detail when magnified by the thumbnail view, but it seems that the greater detail somehow causes the icon to appear darker & less CCleanery than normal when just viewed as an icon.


I wouldn't say the icon is bad, per say, but the darkness seems to take away some from the gloss/glass look that makes it look so appealing.


The dark look makes it seem... different somehow...

The rest of this post and the discussion relating to two desktop icons is moved http://forum.piriform.com/index.php?showtopic=30554
