    You might be aware of DW, in case you're not ;)

    He also has a number of others, of which these 2 sound like they "could" be useful to you

    I came across some nice tools today... I still haven't tried them, but they look interesting.

    -http://tcpmonitor.altervista.org/

    I also came across a CCleaner similar application, which I couldn't find any mentions at Wilders Security Forums.

    -http://client.updatestar.com/en/appcleaner/overview/

    It's a small application. You can also change the configuration file to add more apps you'd like. -http://client.updatestar.com/en/appcleaner/helpus/

    This is new to me too and I test a lot of software so don't usually miss too many new programs.

    This does look like a nice alternative to CCleaner. However like for CCleaner and many other junk cleaners, I don't like the fact that by default it not only cleans temporary files (which is fine), but also history/MRU data - which is something I never ever want to clean. Cleaning of history/MRU data seems pointless to me for the most part, e.g. AppCleaner by default cleans history data from Remote Desktop. Now if I was to let this be removed, next time I use Remote Desktop - it would not come up with the IP address of the server I access remotely a lot. Therefore I would have to type it in - and since I don't remember the address I would have to dig through some emails to find it.

    Anyway, that's my rant for today over with.

    On the plus side the registry cleaner is AppCleaner appears not give positives - which is good and also surprising as 99% of registry cleaner do give false positives. However, but default it wants to remove Obsolete Software entries which is something that should be done with care rather than removing every one.

    Also, I don't like the fact the registry and junk cleaners are run together, rather than being separate like in CCleaner.
