    Sometimes, great software can fall out of grace with its users, often due to bad decisions (or perceived bad decisions) by its authors.

    A classic example is Piriform’s CCleaner. First launched in 2004, it was a wildly popular system cleaner, trusted by millions of PC users as safe, effective, and free. For years it was on most must-have-utilities lists.

    But then things when wrong. It might have been a sad end to a once excellent product, but PortableApps.com saved the day.
