    Oh, and here is the link to download the 'slim' version, without the offer to install the Yahoo toolbar: CCleaner.com

    <img src=/S/thankyou.gif border=0 alt=thankyou width=40 height=15> I really don't like all the additional "stuff" that gets tucked into applications whether they are free or purchased! If the user doesn't choose custom install (it that choice is even offered), these extras show up uninvited. <img src=/S/yep.gif border=0 alt=yep width=15 height=15>

    Re: New CCleaner version

    I tend to agree for the most part, but do empathize with an author trying to make a buck. At least this one is quite up front, even offering an "extras-free" version. I dislike those that sneak this stuff in, burying its existence somewhere deep within the fine print. But I've come to see those that make no mention of it as somewhat of a challenge! I figure that if it's not part of the EULA then I'm free to remove it. Sometimes this is easy - other times you have to trick the software into believing it's still there. The trick is then a matter of how to trick the trickster. Fun & games. <img src=/S/mice.gif border=0 alt=mice width=50 height=25>

    Re: New CCleaner version

    Hi Alan,

    Yes, I do agree that the programmers of software applications like to make money and I don't blame them for that so long as they let me know up front what I may be getting. As for reading EULAs, I'll be the first to admit that I very seldom do because I'm not planning on selling or using more than one copy of a purchased program. And maybe I am wrong with this assumption, but I figure freeware means that I can put it on my PC or a friend's PC without worrying about licenses. As for knowing how to "trick" software, I am below "beginning level" because I know absolutely nothing about how to do it. If an option is available to remove during a custom install, that is about my level of expertise. I certainly do appreciate that the author of CCleaner did offer a "extras-free" version! <img src=/S/thumbup.gif border=0 alt=thumbup width=15 height=15>

    Actually, right from the CCleaner homepage: "v1.34.407 - [19th October 2006]". So, the latest update has been out for nearly a month now. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Re: New CCleaner version

    I run CCleaner every week, and I have it set to notify me of updates on startup. I didn't get a notification last Saturday, but I did get one yesterday, that's why I assumed it had been released this week...

    Re: New CCleaner version

    Hi Hans,
    I downloaded and installed CCleaner to give it a try. Looked in Options and there are a lot of checkboxes. Do you use the default settings? Becaus if I do and hit analyze there's an awful lot of registry entries in the list. Among others many, many 'extensions'. Not sure about those...
