    Another update. Kool.

    I have what i think is a reasonably good suggestion and official request.

    For us multitaskers it would be extremely useful if Ccleaner would also integrate a Recycle Bin scheduler so as to have it automatically wipe the trash bin at specific times like hourly, 30 minutes, etc.

    Whatta ya think?

    Well, it is certainly a reasonable request. However, since I'm not sure anyone from Piriform reads the posts on this board, you might want to use the link below to make the request (select "Product Feature Suggestion" from the dropdown).

    Me too! ;)

    Anyways, the gurus at MozillaZine always say not to tick the Firefox boxes for cleaning as CCleaner is too aggressive.

    You're welcome ! I don't recommend using CCleaner against any Browser settings or files. Use the tools the Browser affords you. As it can Brick the software if not used with utmost care.

    I daily run across uncountless many files and folders that hit the bin and i know a lot of other multitaskers have to get tired of making hundreds of reaches all day emptying the bin.

    An auto-wipe recycle bin scheduler would eliminate that manual task. In the meantime i found a freeware ZDcron scheduler and going to try to command line it to do the job.

    Nice piece of software, regularly maintained; I'm CCleaner 'Free' since the last format 4-5 months ago and I didn't notice any difference, no slowdowns and no one invaded my privacy.

    ''CCleaner It protects your privacy online and makes your computer faster and more secure'' Not true!

    The same goes for Wise Disk Cleaner & Co.

    You are most welcome - note some are moving away from using this app as it can cause bricking trouble.

    I would not suspect you would find posts at http://forum.piriform.com/

    Since I do a lot of support work for those that like freeware such as this app - many use it in a way that breaks things without asking questions and reading FAQ's before first use.

    All due to the nice folks at Piriform.

    It's hard to tell if you are being sarcastic with your last sentence here.

    Either show proof or stop making accusations that using default settings of such a widely used app bricks a computer.

    I think the only real danger using CCleaner is when using it as a registry cleaner, but I also think that it isn't as useful as it was say 8 years ago with XP on relatively slow machines. Since Vista, Windows OSs are quite self-reliant hardly needing any third party utility. I still use CCleaner though, probably more as a habit.

    Thanks for the heads-up about the new version!
    I still have to upgrade.

    Some side-notes if I'm allowed:
    1.
    I run CCleaner very frequently (on my XP machine); both manually and on reboot.
    2.
    I don't use it's reg cleaner option (my own choice).
    3.
    I don't use the fairly new duplicate file finder (my own choice).
    We had a little discussion about it here:
    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=344283
    4.
    About using it on SSD (which I don't have):
    At DSLR it was advised not to use the Drive Wiper option. I cannot comment about that. Maybe that is a topic for the hardware forum-section where the hardware guru's post.
    5.
    Not so long ago I upgraded NOD32 from version 4 to version 6 (on XP).
    I noticed that it is taking CCleaner a lot longer to analyse on version 6 than on version 4. It could be me or my very old laptop. So be it.

    I keep it in case of problems on my machines. Only used it once a long while ago with a SAS screwup.

    I use CCleaner regularly in Windows 7 x64. I have never had a problem. It usually deletes some 100-300 MB, which is significant to reduce the size of backup images.

    I also use the Registry Cleaner, although less frequently. Again. no problems. It´s a "lite" cleaner.

    The hat tip to the folks at Piriform were well meant as they always are.

    I did say can brick *not* does - there is a difference. These threads are for discussion.
    I am and was stating my observations with the app myself and when used by others -

    I done my part and made the recycle bin automated schedule wipe suggestion.

    In the meantime i got Eraser 5.86 running by commandline in a really good freeware app named zCron. It's set to automatically erase the contents of the windows recycle bin every how many minutes or hours apart regularly.

    I dunno if Ccleaner has any command lines for this kind of usesge or not.
