    How reliable is it? Did anyone test it?
    Usually I don't like to much these Jack of All Trades...is it really a good alternative to CCleaner?

    Right now I am using BleachBit , very simple and does the job.

    It's okay if you add winapp2.ini.

    Looks good.
    That means I will leave it on my hard drive for a while.
    I have already done a backup in case something goes haywire.

    I will test it also. If it's good, I will replace CCleaner with it.

    Very clunky in the VM. Does it work better on a real system?
