    I thought for sure i saw this application on these boards.. I'm thinking this tool is for advanced users, I've used it a couple of times using custom cleanup for recycle bin cookies and prefetch files, first swipe took out 315 MB. Have any of you guys tried or even seen this before? Just added Cleanup all users to the mix, total MB 614.2 .. :argh:

    Free disk space & protect your privacy
    All in one easy solution. And all for free!

    Introducing Windows CleanUp!, the quickest and easiest way to delete temporary files from your system.

    CleanUp! is a powerful and easy-to-use application that removes temporary files created while surfing the web, empties the Recycle Bin, deletes files from your temporary folders and more.

    CleanUp! frees disk space and reduces the "clutter" on your computer helping it to run more efficiently. It also can be used as a way to protect your privacy on the Internet. You can even instruct CleanUp! to securely delete files making it impossible to retrieve their contents using lower-level disk tools - just another way of protecting your privacy.

    No gimmicks here, CleanUp! is so easy to set up and use that you'll have a lean, clean, mean machine in minutes.

    Features and benefits PDF Print E-mail

    Covers your tracks on the Internet. CleanUp! deletes traces of you Internet activity that get stored on your hard disk. These things include:

    Browser cache
    Browser History
    Cookies
    Bookmarks and Favorites. Deletion of these is optional and disabled by default.

    Supports all popular browsers. CleanUp! provides full support for the three most popular browsers used under Windows: Internet Explorer (versions 1.x-6.x), Netscape Navigator/Communicator (versions 1.x-7.x), Mozilla (1.x), Firefox (1.x) and Opera (versions 2.x-7.x).

    Supports all popular newsreaders. Newsreaders including Microsoft Internet Mail and News, Outlook and Outlook Express, Netscape Communicator and Operas newsreader are all supported. CleanUp! optionally empties the newsgroup caches for each of these and can, also optionally, remove all subscriptions to newsgroups.

    Removes Windows files tracking your use of the computer. This includes things such as:

    Removing "MRU lists" (storing a list of your Most Recently Used files) for various applications
    Emptying the Recent Documents folder
    Deleting entries from the Run and Find Computer dialogs
    Emptying Recycle Bins
    Emptying various temporary folders
    Removing unneeded registry entries
    Optionally resetting the high scores for Windows games;
    And more.

    Supports other applications too. Almost all Windows applications store information on your hard disk about your use of the program - even if this is as minor as an MRU list. CleanUp! includes support for a variety of commonly used Windows applications.

    Runs on 32-bit Windows. The same version of CleanUp! runs on Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows NT 4.0 Workstation, Windows NT 4.0 Server, Windows 2000 Professional, Windows 2000 Server, Windows 2000 Advanced Server, Windows XP Home, and Windows XP Professional.

    Future proofed. What does this mean? By supporting user-defined (i.e. custom) directories and file specifications, CleanUp! 3.0 (and later) will be able to handle cleaning up of temporary files created by newer browsers and Windows applications.

    Secure file deletion. You can optionally choose to "Wipe Clean" files as they are deleted. This takes a little longer but instructs CleanUp! to overwrite the files several times before deleting them. This makes it almost impossible to recover those files from the hard disk using even the most advanced data recovery techniques, ensuring you the greatest degree of privacy.

    Free. That's right, you can keep on using this program and it won't expire. You are offered the chance to register your support for CleanUp! and pay a price you think it is worth. Think of this payment as a tip - so please contribute something. This payment will help with the continued development of CleanUp! and allow me to make a living. This payment can be as low as $5 or as high as you wish. If you find CleanUp! useful and continue to use it, please register. See below for details.

    Fast. Remove hundreds, even thousands of files and free up many megabytes, and sometimes gigabytes of disk space all in a matter of minutes.

    Simplicity. A clean, simple interface - designed for novices, with an Options dialog allowing some flexibility for more experienced users.

    Privacy information. There is no spy-ware contained in this program. We do not monitor your actions or e-mail. When you register this program, we will not give your e-mail address or personal details to anyone.

    This program is so simple to use, you'll be cleaning up your hard drive and protecting your privacy all in a matter of minutes!

    what the difference is.

    It's not working too well on Windows 7. When doing the test scan it was reporting it could free around 3 times the amount CCleaner, Quick Heal PCTuner, WinCleaner One Click and several programs said they could remove. However when actually doing a cleanup with it, it only deleted about the same amount as other software could do.

    Also one thing which does not impress me about it is that it deletes MRU and recent file data - which in itself is not a bad thing, but there is no option to disable this. Personally this is something I absolutely never want to delete.
