    Oooh - "It removes unused files from your system".

    Do you trust it?!

    CCleaner's operation is fully customizable.

    Further question then -- do you trust what the customising says it will do?

    PS The reason I ask this is that Microsoft had a lot of trouble with RegClean 4.1a, and had to pull it after it started removing registry entries relating to a new version of Office. If Microsoft can have problems with its own files and registries, how far can we trust an external developer in this sensitive and not-necessarily-completely-understood area?

    Have we not had some recent amusements about "Memory Optimisation" and "Deleting the Pre-Fetch Folder"?

    I use CCleaner, but in a limited way. BTW it offers to backup the registry etc. before cleaning.
