I have one question regarding this version.

How safe is it to run CCleaner on 'Hotfix Uninstallers'?

I have used this program many times before after reading recommendations from this forum, however, the 'Hotfix Uninstaller' amounts to nearly 298 MB.

Any help would be appreciated.

"How safe is it to run CCleaner on 'Hotfix Uninstallers'?"

It's a Beta release. This means it might have bugs in it and is still being tested. Whilst i don't think it'll destroy your PC be aware of what a Beta release is. It's a release that's still being tested so the question of "How safe...." probably can't be accurately answered.

Thanks for your post.

To be honest you have just confirmed what I thought at the back of my mind. I think I will wait until the program is the full release.

However, I did wonder whether any of the 'techies' on this forum had run this Beta version.

Thanks again

Angry Kid,
I`ve got it on board and I ran it yesterday evening, and it took 83 seconds to complete a clearance of over 23 Mb. Funny thing I`ve not noticed any detrimental change in my PC`s operation. Hope that helps.

I have run the program a few times, there does not seem to be any problems.

Thanks for your postings.

I have decided to hold fire for the moment and try once again when it is released from Beta.

I presume you checked all the boxes as regulary discussed on the forum?
