Windows 7: CCleaner vs. SlimCleaner

CCleaner vs. SlimCleaner

I've used CCleaner for years on my previous and current desktop. I use it mostly to clean cookies and temp internet files. Occasionally I clean some Windows files using it as well. I rarely use the other functions.

I have a new laptop and it's time to add a cleaning program. I downloaded (not installed yet) CCleaner and then while doing some reading learned about SlimCleaner.

Anyone have thoughts on one versus the other? SlimCleaner has a nice interface and it seems as if it will accomplish the same thing for me. In my research some seemed a bit concerned about the cloud aspect as I believe info about ones system is sent to them.

I'm kind of a creature of habit and I doubt I will change from CCleaner on the desktop so for continuity maybe I should stick with it on the laptop but it is always fun to try something new.

I would just stay with CCleaner, most people on the forum usually use CCleaner if they are recommending a third-party disk cleanup program to a OP.

Heres my thought. Cc is the suggested software of this forum. Thousands of members have tried it and were satisfied without any problem. Why change?

I would install Ccleaner and use it to remove Slime Cleaner. Just joking. Ccleaner just plain works and I'm not going to try and fix something thats not broke.

I agree with...if ain't broke don't fix it argument. But with out change there is no progress...in point of fact, Windows 8. So what is one to do...we try, if we like we keep using it. If we don't we get rid of it and try something else or go back to what works and wait for something better to come along.

I tend to agree but SlimCleaner does get good reviews (some from just few days ago) and is recommended by some reputable publications. I can't seem to find recent reviews of CCleaner, probably because it's been around so long.

Nothing wrong with giving something else a try.
