Windows 7: Help with Ccleaner settings

Help with Ccleaner settings

Does anyone know if there is a way to use and save multiple different cleanup settings in Ccleaner free version?

Basically I think I need a way to run specified custom winapp.ini or winapp2.ini files and let Ccleaner know which .ini file to use when cleaning with the ability to select from a choice of .ini files.

One way i think you could do this:

use the portable version
create different folders for each setup/version you want
then run Ccleaner in the folder that has the setup you want

Thanks. That sounds like a plan. What I'm really after is a way to run an external application like Ccleaner when closing browsers (any commonly used browser) to clean only browser specific files rather than a full clean.

I know that feature is available in the Pro version of Ccleaner for some browsers but I reckon your solution is just as good. I'll just point this at the portable version of Ccleaner.

hi I have installed quite lot of programs and deinstalled again, if I don't need on my notebook with WIN 7 prof. 64-bit. Sometimes an uninstallation process not really 100%, some entries still remain in the registry. Is it a good idea to clean WIN7 time to time with CCleaner?

Recommendations for CCleaner settings
Hello, I have been using CCleaner for a long time and have basically checked everything but browser passwords for removal. I have lately been attempting to use some more W7 features that may require error logs and such. I was wondering what informed and experienced users, use for the settings....
CCleaner Tip
Hi Folks, I used the CCleaner feature as in my image a few days ago, followed by a 'Defrag & Optimize' with Auslogics Defrag. It gave my system a real boost. As yet, nothing funny has happened, but I made a system image backup with Acronis T I H 2010 for obvious reasons.

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".
