    Ive had no problems with Crap Cleaner, ive been using it since it was called that... Registry as well, besides doesnt it make a reg undo file before deleting anything in the registry?

    The only thing about CCleaner is its best if you dont always delete the cache, it makes some things slow at first till the new cache is regenerated.. Just run the cache cleaner monthly or so...

    I use CCleaner but only selectively and not very often.

    When I first started using it, I used to let it delete everything it wanted to.

    Then I started tracing later problems I found that some of them were a direct result of deleted registry keys.

    So these days, I do each CCleaner registry section one at a time and review what registry entries CCleaner is proposing to delete.
    If am not sure about a particular item I untick so it is not deleted.

    To be honest, if improving the performance of Windows is your priority, programs like Revo Uninstaller or Advanced Uninstaller Pro are much more useful. If your OS is on a spinning hard disk, regular defragging is also useful. I disable autorun of Windows builtin defragger. I prefer to run Auslogics Disk Defrag when it suits me.

    My advise is to stay COMPLETLY away form anything form LionSea, including the infamous Wisefixer.
    IHAV e just upgraded to Windows because Wisefixer corrupted my Windows seven to the point where I couldn't ot do a backup. Plus it deletes your mailfiles on Live mail.

    A Bad product. I have asked Microsoft to warn new users off it.
