I was going to suggest CCleaner, right up till I read your last sentence. :)
but considering I rate it as still one of the better ones, I'll give you the link and let you decide; https://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/builds
other quick fixes for low space are to delete old Restore Points, turn of hibernation, empty Recycle Bin, reduce max size of Recycle Bin and pagefile and empty system and user Temp folders.
programs like CCleaner will do most of the heavy lifting for you. but there are others, like, PrivaZer and Clean Space. although CCleaner has a reputation for doing a softly, softly approach.

The best tool which has never been hacked is http://uncleaner.software.informer.com/1.7/
