Script Summary: Get Piriform product (CCleaner, Defraggler, Recuva, Speccy) updates without jumping hoops.
Piriform's free tools like CCleaner and Defraggler are updated often. That's good, but since there's no auto-update, you're taken to the Piriform website to download the update almost every time you run them. There you're introduced to the different licensing and support options and download mirrors which is all fine and dandy, but you've seen this a thousand times before and you're just there for the update. Well, let me tell you about a nice little option on the bottom of each product's download page: builds. The builds pages are alternative download pages which also host special versions of the tools, packaged for portable use and without toolbars.
This userscript lets you set your preferred download option and have the update requests automatically redirected accordingly.
- Returning from holiday I noticed the aforementioned slim builds are back, this time for all supported products.
- The Slim builds for CCleaner and Defraggler up and vanished, so the script has been updated removing those options.
- Near-complete re-write inspired by drewmerc's idea. Script configuration is no longer required, instead you select the desired download from a drop-down menu.
