    Lord I get tired of updating this program, lol. Weird bit of info in there though, "Shareaza, iMesh, BearShare, DC++ and Ares.". Shareaza I believe to be dead, DC++ and Ares as well.

    I'm sticking with 3.03 until they fix:
    -Unused file extensions bug where CCleaner detects some extensions as unused even though they're associated with a program that is installed on the system
    -Cleaning Opera Internet history causes Opera to "forget" the default download folder. DL folder is set to My docs.\Downloads, yet after cleaning it's set to My docs.\ even though the \Downloads folder is correctly specified in Opera settings.
    (XP OS)

    I think they've always had the extensions issue. They've gotten worse, imho, about cleaning in general. I'm always finding things they supposedly cleaned.

    That may be true, but at least on my system 3.03 doesn't exhibit such (erratic) behavior, whereas 3.04 and 3.05 would detect extensions as unused over and over simply because I started and closed the application associated with said extensions.

    And it took me a good deal of time to figure out what was messing up Opera's download location... :ouch:

    Yeah, I get that a lot as well, the repeat of extensions. It actually took me some time to figure out that that was what was wrong. I all but ignore the registry cleaning part now.

    Interesting that the Slim version is released around the same time.

    This has been like that for ages for me. Solution obviously is to ignore irrelevant junk in the registry cleaner (do not scan for it) or ignore the function altogether. My opinion is that all the registry cleaners and optimizers suck, some less, some more, but in general all of them suck and are pointless except for very special cases.

    Agreed :thumb:

    Just use the excellent file cleaner, along with maybe CCEnhancer.

    Does anyone know if they will incorporate auto-updating any time soon?

    I wished they would do this soon. Their update function only opens your browser and you have to manually download and install each new version.

    I only CCleaner about once a week or less often when my system needs to be cleaned up and every time I start CCleaner up, it says it has an update that I have to manually download and install. This is so annoying.

    Why can't they include an updater that just updates the components? instead of a complete install each time.

    Thanks.:D

    Me too. Even just a built-in manual updater would be nice.

    Oh, woe is me! You're so annoyed at having to manually download updates for that free software. You could always use another tool that maybe doesn't bother you so much. ;)

    Lol, hey, with as many updates as CCleaner has, it is annoying to have to manually download the entire program every time! :D What's with manual updates nowadays anyway? Hasn't years of software development shown that end users are forgetful/lazy? This can be solved by using Secunia PSI, but, if you want it to keep you informed of updates, it's yet another process that has to run in the background at all times. Also, the best part of it, the auto-updating that happens without user interaction, leads to program updates you may not want due to preference or incompatibilities.

    So, CCleaner really could use a built-in updater, and preferably one that doesn't require the entire program to be downloaded and reinstalled.

    I just can't get annoyed with a free program as good as CC, no matter what the upgrade process involves.
    But to each his own. :)

    people can appreciate free software, that doesnt mean people cannot give suggestion as to how it can improve.

    :thumb: While I personally see CCleaner being less effective these last few versions (inevitably I have to manually delete files and entries it supposedly cleaned), my suggestions weren't to be seen as a knock on CCleaner. I just see a need for programs to automatically do what users historically forget or don't want to do, which is update their software. I really don't see why updates to CCleaner require so much anyway. What are they doing to it, and doing it so often, that updating requires entire program downloads?

    My point exactly, I appreciate free software but when there is an issue that needs to be worked on, then I will state it. There is no telling how many other free software that have either a manual or auto update function that will update only the needed components. An excellent software like CCleaner should have this as well.

    Thanks.:D

    I haven't come across too many though Firefox is a good example of one.
