I think someone needs an attitude check. This is a help forum, not a challange.

Never used BC Wipe, I do have East Tec Eraser, but seldom use it. I have very little I'd want to securely erase. But CCleaner is perhaps the best freeware program out there, and that's a tough field with Firefox , Opera, etc. just to name a few. CCleaner can be set to do a 35 Pass Gutmann delete if you want. It's going to be slower, but unless you have a very slow PC, you can just carry on while it does it's thing. 35 passes means even hardware can't recover deleted files. Way overkill I'd say, but if that's what you are asking about. CCleaner keeps getting better and better, so with no personal experience with BC Wipe, I'm going to cast a vote for CCleaner. A Guy

Ccleaner
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".
