TFC - Temp File Cleaner by OldTimer


TFC (Temp File Cleaner) will clear out all temp folders for all user accounts (temp, IE temp, java, FF, Opera, Chrome, Safari), including Administrator, All Users, LocalService, NetworkService, and any other accounts in the user folder. It also cleans out the %systemroot%\temp folder and checks for .tmp files in the %systemdrive% root folder, %systemroot%, and the system32 folder (both 32bit and 64bit on 64bit OSs). It shows the amount removed for each location found (in bytes) and the total removed (in MB). Before running it will stop Explorer and all other running apps. When finished, if a reboot is required the user must reboot to finish clearing any in-use temp files.


TFC only cleans temp folders. TFC will not clean URL history, prefetch, or cookies. Depending on how often someone cleans their temp folders, their system hardware, and how many accounts are present, it can take anywhere from a few seconds to a minute or more. TFC will completely clear all temp files where other temp file cleaners may fail. TFC requires a reboot immediately after running. Be sure to save any unsaved work before running TFC.


Download
looks ok i may give it a try i use Auslogics Disk Defrag (3.1.10.165) Download Auslogics Disk Defrag for free and it has a optional function to clear temp files before it defrags.
AS an added note,, Auslogics will not do as good a job as this TFC.
The reason is, the Killing of explorer should cause a lot of the locked files to become unlocked and then deleted. Then on reboot, anything that could not be deleted should be upon using (most likely) the run once key prior to windows loading to delete remaining files before they get locked as in use.

Auslogics and many other temp cleaners do not do that.

While i use CCleaner as it not only clean all the temp files also Internet Cache & also old registry key as well. Using a single apps for only 1 purpose means that 1 has to install "n"number of other apps to get it done.

hi all
in my newsletter from addictivetips they reviewed this program SlimCleaner its like ccleaner but the user interface is rather swish and colourful im testing it out right now (so far so good)

Quote:
Many users prefer using CCleaner for getting rid of unnecessary files from temporary file directories. However, many apps like CCleaner are not very effective and leave behind clutter from many directories (e.g. the log files and Temp from the Windows directory, Prefect files and even the Temp in user profiles). A better alternative to CCleaner can be the previously reviewed Xleaner. However, if you would like to have a software that contains the attributes of the robust Xleaner and provides the ability to identify and removed toolbars, applications and the like that hijack your system components, then you should try SlimCleaner. It cleans and optimizes Windows systems using a crowd-sourced approach, as well as provides configuration options for programs, startups and service settings. Moreover, it provides information and removal options for applications and services that take over system tasks and unnecessarily consume system memory and strain the CPU.


The Cleaner tab provides detailed options regarding the selection of Windows directories, applications and browsers that you wish to clean clutter from. Select the desired options and click on Run Cleaner to start the cleaning process.

Please note that this software is still in its beta stage and therefore, you may face some bugs or functionality problems. Although we did not experience any of them during testing.
