    While i fully Understand where our friend @nilst2006 Is coming from, A N D,
    I am in full agreement. There are too many Users who have not Studied their
    Systems & would be at a loss to do Manual cleaning. Therefore, the Guys
    @ff.beta offer their opinions about such App's to help All peeps & Members.

    Since my Testing of this App & my findings with regard to The cleaning
    Capabilities & the somewhat questionable cleaning of index.dat Files. Which
    I found to "Wipe" the Files but keep them On Board... (On my System).

    I am now using CCleaner on various Streaming Systems............. 5*

    I am not reviewing this release ATM.. v4.18.4842

    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?
