No you don't need both. If both are free I would go for C Cleaner.

You don't even need one so called cleaner. They can and do cause more problems than they solve.

I agree with Chronus, I used CC and it created havoc with my Win XP

Agreed never had a problem with CCleaner, don't even bother backing up the registry now before cleaning.

I tend to 'trial' most of the free or limited offer 'cleaners', usually at the same time, so as to see what occurs on the computers that I use for this purpose.

Most will have there own qwerks and problems, if not used with consideration, especially those that suggest a paid upgrade is essential. Fortunately, I am able to get some of these upgrades for free, which still convinces me most times, that even the Pro versions are suspect in doing a full job intended.

CCleaner as always been a firm favourite of mine, right from its introduction. Never had any problems with that product, and that includes any registry fixes. Suggest that you keep it on your computer, and regular check for latest updates.

Used CCleaner on literally dozens of computers. It has NEVER produced a problem, but has ALWAYS speeded up slow machines.
