    I use ATF Cleaner every day. It is immediate and no-nonsense. One click and whatever you select goes within a millisecond.

    The only problem is that it does not show what it is going to delete, it just does it, so if you get it wrong you lose it fast. I have other well known cleaners and need no comments on these, but what do you think about lil `ole ATF ?

    ATF is old and outdated...

    Use CCleaner: http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner

    I have installed BleachBit and it looks really good. I think the selection list is great and the preview both necessary and welcome. I am very impressed with it as against ATF.

    Thank you very much for posting it.

    Presumably you use it - does it work OK without problems ?

    You are perfectly correct, there is nothing wrong with ATF even if it is considered "old".
    It is a very useful cleaner, quick and uncomplicated. Well worth having, I use it all the time.
    But I do like BleachBit as a more "scientific" option for use when a more detailed look at what is being classed as rubbish is needed. It gives us more control over what we are about to do.
    ATF for a quick delete, BleachBit for a more considerate job.
