    Thanks Joe and Jeff.
    CCleaner is becoming one of the file cleaner Super Stars.
    Very reliable.

    Re: Ccleaner update

    My reply is to your post, Joe, but since there are four of you here who seem to be "regular" users, I have a couple of questions for all or any of you. I've not used the product but just decided to give it a download to check it out. Searching The Lounge there are plenty of threads to read and from this fairly recent one ( <post:=614,256>post 614,256</post:> ) I do see some of the reservations that have been expressed, i.e. cookies, etc. Are there any other aspects of the program that should be avoided and once you "un-tick" the things you DON'T want done, does it remember those settings the next time? I took their little tour on the site and it looks like a better way to cleanup than the manual methods I use, along with XP's cleanmgr.exe.

    Re: Ccleaner update

    I had a problem some time ago with CCleaner removing all my customizations in Access. I have cleared the check box for Office in the Cleaner > Applications section. The problem may well be solved in recent versions, but I haven't tried it again.
    I have also unticked the check boxes for some other features, such as cookies (I manage those myself) and the list of recently used documents.
    CCleaner stores all these settings. Apart from the glitch mentioned above, I haven't experienced any problems with it.

    Re: Ccleaner update

    Al,

    I've really quit using it. I just posted it 'cause I knew there were several users here. I just didn't run it often enough and I've come to the conclusion that I'll manage what, when, and how I want. I'm very particular about where I surf, what I download, what I save, etc. So, I refuse to be paranoid about what is on my PC. I don't care about cookies, MRU, TIFF, log files, etc. I just periodically check the temp folder under local settings and that is about it. If I had been a little smarter about using throwaway e-mail addresses and web based mail, I'd quit using all A/V and anti-spyware apps also.

    Re: Ccleaner update

    Al,
    Except for cookies, I use it as is, out of the box and have not seen any problems.
    As you might have surmised from some of my other posts, I am not a junk collector or a leave everything as is type.
    I like to think I run a clean, mean machine, so CCleaner is one of the tools I use to keep it that way.

    Re: CCleaner update

    BigAl,

    I'm one of those who runs CCleaner nightly to get rid of the junk on my system. I have NEVER had a problem with running either the "Cleaner" or "Issues" utilities. To answer your question, because I am running IE7 I uncheck "Delete index.dat files" because it deletes cookies even if you have "Cookies" unchecked. I rely upon Spybot S&D's "Ignore Cookies" feature to keep the cookies I want and to remove the rest. I also have unchecked "Autocomplete Forum History" and "Last Download Location" and I have nothing checked in the last "Advanced" section either. Since the "Cleaner" utility only removes "junk", there is little or no risk of having something critical removed. However, in the "Issues" section, since it is a mini-Registry Cleaner (Lite), you are prompted to save a backup of the items it finds and you choose to remove (I always remove everything it finds), there is little risk for that either. The backup file is a ".reg" file which you can easily double-click to restore the items back to the Registry if need be. Again, I personally have never had a problem using CCleaner on my own PC's nor any of my many client's PC's, on which I always install a copy of CCleaner and encourage them all to use it regularly. YMMV. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Re: CCleaner update

    Thanks for all the comments and ideas folks. I installed it yesterday and took a look through all the nav bar selections. I just need to assess a conservative way to start a tryout and then I'll give 'er a test run. Thanks again.

    Thanks Joe. I found this post in looking for cleaners.
    I've been using EasyCleaner for four years, but it has no command line interface (that I can see).
    I found a reference to CleanMgr.exe and tried that, and then I found CCleaner (220). http://www.piriform.com/

    Here are the results of my crude experiment:
    1. Ran EasyCleaner. It found 865 files for deletion. I left it/them sitting there.
    2. Ran CleanMgr.exe /dc:
    3. Re-Ran EasyCleaner. It found 242 files for deletion. I left it/them sitting there.
    4. Ran CCleaner.exe
    5. Re-Ran EasyCleaner. It found 9 files for deletion. I tried deleting them and had 6 unresolvable files; that is, easy Cleaner managed to delete 3 more files than CCleaner.

    I now have a small batch file to run on demand
    "C:\Program Files\CCleaner\CCleaner.exe" /AUTO

    Mouse-be-gone!

    Trying to play the pedant here: your Google search is for CCleaner; Chris mentioned that EasyCleaner didn't have a command line interface...

    True!
    I was relying on Chris's final paragraph
    I now have a small batch file to run on demand
    "C:\Program Files\CCleaner\CCleaner.exe" /AUTO

    and the documentation points out that the command-line version won't do any registry cleanup, presumably for very good reasons...

    The EasyCleaner webpage says:
    Other info
    Don't use command line parameters. Not implemented yet! And help files are only partly done in English.
    <snip>
    To-do
    * Command line parameters
