Solved Question about CCleaner v3

July 7, 2014 at 21:41:54
Specs: Win 7
On the "Applications" tab in CCleaner are several Windows apps
including Media Center, Media Player, Paint, Wordpad, RegEdit,
and Management Console. Their checkboxes are checked by
default, indicating that they get "cleaned". What kinds of files
do these programs create that CCleaner deletes if it finds them?

CCleaner always finds some Adobe Flash Player files to remove,
but I haven't noticed that it finds files from the other apps, all of
which I use at least sometimes.

✔ Best Answer
When CCleaner has run it displays a report showing the size of files removed & if you click on the individual program names it will display the actual filenames. With many programs, including media player, it's usually stuff in their own 'cache' systems. As to whether CCleaner actually does everything it says, the jury is out on that one - I, for one, am happy that it tends to be not too invasive in its file removal so if it wants to leave some programs alone then that's fine with me.

Yes, in a nutshell they are just records of what you've been doing and don't affect the programs in any other way. I find the regedit one handy because it resets it to default rather than the last place I looked, which I rarely want again and can put in regedit Favorites anyhow.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
