    I started using CCleaner several years ago because it met my needs at the time, but lately I'm getting frustrated with it and I think it's time to be moving on. Ideally what I want is something that's fairly simple without a lot of predefined options, but lets the user define what to include and exclude. I've been watching CCleaner lately and it seems to be deleting things I don't want deleted, and the feature for adding files to include/exclude is sadly lacking, at least in my experience. It's also pretty bad about not estimating exactly what will be deleted. I'd prefer something I can define with more pinpoint accuracy than I'm getting with CCleaner. Anyone know of anything?

    I don't want to start a debate on the merits of CCleaner, or lack thereof. I'm looking for an alternative. :)

    Thanks z. I should have mentioned I'm looking for free. Those two are free trials from what I could tell. Correct me if I'm wrong.
