    For further confirmation, it's probably worth reading Ed Bott's article with the title One more time: do not clean out your Prefetch folder!.

    Re: Another CCleaner update

    Tony,

    I don't think the prefetch data issue is really relevant in CCleaner as it only cleans files that are older than 2 days (or was it more?). The prefetch data are almost always newer. So that is probably why it is called "old prefetch data".

    Regards,
    Teunis
