...also Prefetch and Recent directories can be safely cleaned out from time to time. One can Ccleaner or anything similar to clean browser cache, browser cache only, nothing else concerning the browser pots. Wise Disk Cleaner, if used carefully and surgically, can be used to clean up lots of byte-space stuff.

All the utilities we mentioned have temp-file cleaners, and this one cleans ONLY temp files in both temp folders, but it requires a restart after.

Don't touch anything in AppData except Temp and Recent. Other folders there are settings and profiles for many of your programs. And Recent will keep refilling if you empty it. It's the record of recent accessed files that appears in your Start Menu>Documents.
It's easiest just to use a utility that does several kinds of cleaning at once.

Disk Cleanup - Extended

I recommend that you run my my batch script from here => Useful Batch Files - Extended_Disk_Cleanup.bat.

Check the appropriate boxes for the items that you want cleaned and press [OK].

I hope this helps!

That frustrates me, when we offer to help, suggest a tool to run and OP doesn't.

Apologies. Just a delay. I had a question out about the 'dust bunnies' program and didn't hear any
expansion on it. And your tool someone said took a long time to run. I'm just reviewing the thread today.

There may be some othet posts I have to catch up on. Plus I usually report any success I've had whenever that happens.

My Disk Cleanup - Extended is mainly for users that don't wish to download and install third-party software. It also allows you to choose what you want to delete!

I hope this helps!

Yes I'm catching up on what I missed and the diversions. Let me ask it this way: As with a virus cleaner suite, is there a preferred sequence of using these tools in a series of steps? I am not a power user just an old one.

It may be useful to others for a how- to. If such a thing is written already, say the word. Good to see others are using some softwares familiar to me like Revo Uninstaller.

I think I mentioned reg-cleaners can remove entries pointing to non-existent folders or files or program files...and other things.
