If I am understanding the content from various threads regarding ccleaner.- You are able to delete almost everything it finds with impunity. This seems too good to be true, or am I up a gum tree? I have an old computer that I re-formatted recently and I use it just to try software out before installing onto my main PC and there is very little on it,- but ccleaner found 85Mb of stuff to remove. I took the plunge and removed all. It still seems to function at this time, but I am loath to use it on my main PC. Any advice welcome.
I have used Ccleaner on over 50 computers including my own two. I delete everything it finds and do not even check to see what it is deleting. It is one of the safest programmes around. You can always use system restore if necessary. I also use Regseeker on every computer that I see, I delete ALL it finds with impunity....click here Useh these two programme weekly and you will never have a slow computer.
I agree with the other postings here. Been using CCleaner since I saw GANDALF <|:-)> singing its praises. I also delete everything it finds and have never had any problems. I also use a registry cleaner [I use a paid-for: RegVac] and Ccleaner about every 2 weeks.
Out of interest, I 'accquired' a commercial cleaner & it missed stuff that CCleaner didn't. I believe that to be a recommendation in it's own right ....
when using CCleaner - specifically when using the 'issues' tab. If you delete everything it finds in that section you'll run the risk of breaking some applications - as a client of mine recently found out. She scanned for issues, deleted everything, and subsequently one of her mission-critical programs started throwing up error messages - she had deleted crucial files.
Apart from that one warning I share the enthusiasm of the other contributors - CCleaner is superb, and you may safely delete everything it finds in the 'Windows' tab.
