    I finally found an actual use for CCleaner just a few weeks ago! When I was returning a drive to Seagate for warranty replacement, I used Drive Wiper to clean the old drive before I packed it for shipment.

    I have an extended Cleanmgr.exe run by Task Scheduler every night, and on occasion I will run CCleaner in its default settings to analyze my drive. It always finds ~350MB - 500MB of files, but they are predominately files that I have no need to delete. Temporary Internet Files are about half, but their numbers are always about the same; Internet Explorer settings limit the TIF cache, so the older files get shuffled out of the way by newer files. If I delete them, they will quickly grow back to the same aggregate size—not much advantage there.

    So, on a 1TB drive I have about 0.1% capacity being used by a mostly self-refreshing cache. Not a big concern for me. As for the rest of CCleaner's options (aside from Drive Wiper), I either have no use for them or have similar (or better) capabilities with other utilities that I have available, or within Windows itself. And I neither use nor recommend the use of "registry cleaning".
    Create a fresh drive image before making system changes, in case you need to start over!

    Thought I'd share this, found it funny... this latest version was released 2 days ago. I installed it immediately. And put notice of it in some IT forums where I write. Just a moment ago I received an E-mail from Piriform informing me of the Update.

    Well, I got a chuckle out of it, anyway.

    Cheers,
    Drew

    PS: I strongly support the "stay out of the Registry" school of thought. I have always & forever discouraged my clients & customers & Forum readers from playing in that sandbox, w/ anything, period.
