I've found out that if you run CCleaner first then SuperAntiSpyware doesn't find anything.

If you run SuperAntiSpyware first then it will find some tracking cookies.

So I just use CCleaner.

I use both Cclaener and SAS. About once a week I run SAS in safe mode and some times it will find some left overs.

CCleaner dows not remove tracking cookies. Use SAS for that.
