But the best part is that it's fast (normally taking less than a second to run) and contains NO Spyware or Adware.

    IMO CCleaner is very safe - I've personally installed it on heaps & heaps of PC's & use it many times a day on all my PC's without ever having an issue - Take care if you use the registry cleaner part of it but frankly that's never done any damage either as it's pretty benign.

    I've used CCleaner fro the very beginning is and is by far the best there is, how it can 'destroy your computer' I do not know - I've never had anyone I know complain about it either - It's far, far safer than any of the so called 'clean & speed-up programs you can buy - Used it from XP - Windows 10.

    Best crap remover pay or free in the known universe.

    Always 5 stars.

    CCleaner is still the worst cleaner out there. It will destroy your system don't use this program for any reason at all. If you use It you will do It at your own risk. Your computer will be broken.

    I stand correcfed. It IS cleaning the Flash cookies -- it's leaving a "settings" file, which also carries an ".SOL" extension, which I thought was a cookie

    How about adding an option to remove FLASH COOKIES?

    I haven't used this product in a while and when my PC gets full, I'll use it to clean clean it out.

    CCleaner doesn't install but Yahoo! toolbar. It's recommended that you should install the Slim version.

    Not only that, but it tries to install on your computer! :-O

    I hear you! I had to reinstall my OS because I used the registry cleaner! With such small files being installed into the registry, just leave it alone. There is NO WAY that any registry cleaner could possibly know all of the file names that program writers make up and install. BAD IDEA!

    Everyone here seems to have lots of love for this program, but today it killed my wife's laptops registry. I think it would of great help if the registry list of "problems" had a collumn with the origin of the file, so you can see if it is a valid entry, or something that really should be deleted. because lets face it, does anyone really know exactly what every dll file does- by name?
    How do we make an informed choice on which to delete or not delete?
