Have "Run Cleaner" and Registry tab monthly for 10 years without a hitch. Put it on hundreds of installs with only rave reviews. I agree it may be the best and brainiest freeware app out there, perfected to a t.

Someone should interview the author and find out how he did it. He may even be around here.

Hello I was advised to use the section of Ccleaner labeled, Windows and Applications if you use; temp files, history, cookies, urls, autocomplete, recent docs, run, recycle bin and clipboard. Is this sound advise or should I just perform a disc cleanup?

CCleaner and WMP
I think with the latest version CCleaner added detection of WMP files. Or at least I never saw them before. When I run CCleaner with WMP selected under Applications it finds over 1 million KB of Art Cache .jpg files (sample attached). Can these be safely deleted? I use iTunes as my media...
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".
