I couldn't agree more!
Unfortunately, this is the way things are now.
It is the high tech society that we live in and the fast pace and expections of life itself.
This along with individuals setting themselves expectations that could possibly be beyond them will cause added pressures and downfalls.
Bring back the good old days.

Well not too old Paul but I know what you mean but the thing is I think it is not so much a point that technology is creeping forward and creeping is quite an apt term for what I see as being ownership by stealth but in the main it is driven I think by greed.

Given that we are now in the age of an "open book" approach as in Windows 10 for example I feel less than happy using some of the newer stuff especially if as I said it has been taken over by some conglomerate that has steamrollered over some great but small companies to the detriment of that companies great product, and I feel that CCleaner is just one example.

It sort of leaves you wondering who will own everything eventually and that is a distinct possibilty I reckon.

Sorry to be such a pessimist but being very cynical now I have to think that way. Frankly I am surprised that some versions of Linux applications have not been "turned" by the pressures of financing the technology

Check out System Ninja. I use that and Ccleaner. System Ninja WILL find temp files Ccleaner won't. I can guarantee it. In System Ninja, don't check off to clear folder config files. It's unchecked by default for a reason. Only use it if you need or know what you are doing.

Apparently, if you check that off and use a non-English language, it'll reset it to English and mess with the context menu.

It may do other things I'm not aware of, but since they are config files it may be how you have settings for folder views, etc. So I wouldn't touch it.

Thx - I notice there a s/w called CCEnhancer that is supposed to 'beef-up' CCleaner. How does that incorporate. Does it merge with CCleaner during the download? Or does it merge via install after it's downloaded? Or is it done via the CCleaner app?


-thx

I have no idea. LOL I never heard of it before and just use an older version of Ccleaner in addition to System Ninja.
