If you use ccleaner, just use the cleaner. Do NOT use the registry cleaner. I would never trust anything that attempts to "fix" the registry. Also, Windows 7 defrags itself automatically, so there is no need for a 3rd party defragger.

Could you please explain this and how it does it? Little skeptical on this as I run 4 ssd drives and do not want ANY defraging!

Go to start and type in disk defragmenter and hit enter. Then, clikc on configure schedule at the top and be sure to uncheck the box in the window that comes up that says "defragment on a schedule."

I'd use CCleaner Disk and Registry cleaners approximately monthly. If it regularly finds 1gb+ of crap to clean up then use it more often, otherwise you can use it less often.

There is nothing risky whatsoever about using CCleaner's Registry cleaner in spite of misinformation which is sometimes posted about it, apparently confusing it with the registry cleaner scamware which is sold on the internet that will in fact mess up Win7.

As is often the case when discussing CCleaners registry cleaner, I find myself agreeing with Greg that CCleaner is the only registry cleaner I can recommend universally. I have yet to see an instance where it has caused any problems. A Guy

I have been an over-the-top user of ccleaner for years, usually several times a day, to be sure to clear temp files, browser remnants, cookies etc, + use it regularly to clean registry, delete restore points, uninstall programs, edit start-up programs and more. Regarding the registry, option is there to backup any changes (which I do), never ever had to revert. Many different pc's, never missed a beat. imho, Ccleaner must be the most reliable and most useful utility of all times.

I would not run CCleaner that often, in fact I would not run it more than monthly and not even that often if it doesn't find a lot to clean up.

Those of us enamored of CCleaner or any tool should be realistic about whether and how often it's really needed in Win7. I don't see any difference if I don't run it for months sometimes. Where I see a difference is when I clean up a PC that has 3-10gb of schmutz and 100+ orphan reg keys to clean up.

Ccleaner
Hello I was advised to use the section of Ccleaner labeled, Windows and Applications if you use; temp files, history, cookies, urls, autocomplete, recent docs, run, recycle bin and clipboard. Is this sound advise or should I just perform a disc cleanup?

CCleaner and WMP
I think with the latest version CCleaner added detection of WMP files. Or at least I never saw them before. When I run CCleaner with WMP selected under Applications it finds over 1 million KB of Art Cache .jpg files (sample attached). Can these be safely deleted? I use iTunes as my media...

How do I get rid of that stupid security warning when opening CCleaner and Defraggler? I don't want to disable it for all programs, just those two. I can't figure out how to screen cap the window (Prnt Screen doesn't work), but it's the one that's titled "User Account Control".
