    Good program being using it for a long time. Hate the new look, can we have the option to switch back to the old look and retain the updates to the program.

    Would have given it a 5 star rating, but due to new look had to drop it down to 3 stars.

    not very thrilled with the "New Look". Other than that, a rock solid product. 4 stars be cause it looks like a 1990's reject .

    Shame they went ahead with the Modern UI look which I find putrid on Windows 7. Looks like I'll be sticking with the last version 4. Most CCleaner updates are just the addition of new programs it looks to clean and adding CCEnhancer does that very thing.

    Love CCleaner, been using it for years. I am now playing with Windows 10. Yes, the new UI look matches up with Windows-10. However I do not like the UI look of Windows 8 or 10, so I am not happy with the new UI look of CCleaner.

    Hopefully there will be a future option to keep the old UI look of CCleaner. For now I have reverted back to CCleaner 4.19 and do not plan to upgrade to the new version 5 unless there is some major future improvements that force me to upgrade and deal with the new UI interface.

    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 ask.com but Yahoo! toolbar. It's recommended that you should install the Slim version.

    Not only that, but it tries to install ask.com 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?
