    It might just turn out to be one day, who knows.

    But it sure doesn't hurt to keep these (good) cleaners onboard.

    I been using as a routine for a long time (out of habit i suppose) ClearProg/DiskCleaner/CCleaner, as well as Nirsoft's really cool and efficient "CleanAfterMe".

    Nice to see a new entry enter this field. LOL

    I look at it as a fast type of cleaner you have handy next to the Recycle Bin.

    CC is a different type altogether for me.

    tbh if windows cleaned out temporary files when they arent needed then we wouldnt need these programs.
    plus if no registry no registry cleaners. better file system no defraggmentors etc.

    thanks kyle!
    btw a little glitch
    once it finishes cleaning the bar keeps moving part way and cant press the analyse or clean button. only way to stop the glitch is eiether pressing the automatic button or closing and reopening.
    can anyone confirm?

    Thanks for the new release. It's definitely coming along! However the following issues still remain:

    -Firefox cookies, cache, address bar info, download data are still NOT being deleted (it marks it for deletion, but it doesn't actually do it)

    -C:\WINDOWS\WindowsUpdate.log 5.27KB (not deleted)

    -"Temporary Internet Files" are still NOT being deleted (see pic below). These include:

    -C:\Documents and Settings\<user name>\Local Settings\History\History.IE5\MSHist012008082720080828\index.dat 32.00KB
    -C:\Documents and Settings\<user name>\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\index.dat
    -C:\Documents and Settings\<user name>\Cookies\index.dat
    -C:\Documents and Settings\<user name>\Local Settings\History\History.IE5\index.dat

    These files are locked by system. There's no other solution than marking them for deletion on next reboot (as far as I know).

    Even after reboot, those files are not deleted by KCleaner (although deleted by CCleaner).

    Here's what I find: IF I run CCleaner FIRST then run an "analyse" scan on KCleaner, NOTHING is found or marked to be deleted. However IF I run KCleaner FIRST then an "analyse" scan on CCleaner.....items that I listed in post # 107 are leftover and were not deleted by KCleaner. FYI.

    Hi,

    Yes, my Windows run now so quickly, that I cannot catch it any more !!!:argh: :argh: :argh:

    Before clean : 247 Mb / 1614 items ( of which : 95 UninstallCommand's $NtuninstallKB... - spuninst.exe )

    After clean : 1.97 Mb / 11 items ( index.dat .......)

    I look to : wbemess.log : Nt Event Log Consumer : could not retrieve sid 0x80041002
    wmiprov.log : WDM call returned error : 4200

    I see : " Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware : The database was successfully updated from version 0 to version 1089. OK. " :-* :argh: I photographed it .

    I look to OpenedFilesView :
    C / Windows / System32 / h323log.txt ( created time 2004 ) : 0 byte's
    C / Windows / Debug / PASSWD.LOG ( 2004...) : 0 byte's

    I look to Advanced WindowsCare Personal v2.8.6 : Online Report : " The errors fixed : 102 ...Your Computer Health and Performance - before : red ; after : green !... green .

    RegSeeker : Registry clean : 200 item's !!! ( 200 ).

    I think it's great you being proactive and trying to get a program "out there".

    But from a business perspective and marketing viewpoint, you need to ask yourself this question, "Why would people use Kcleaner when they can use ccleaner?"

    A couple of hundred millions people use ccleaner and are regular downloaders. People will not bother changing over to Kcleaner if it does pretty much the same thing. They are loyal and comfortable with ccleaner and will continue to recommend ccleaner to others.

    So unless Kcleaner does something amazingly different that is a critical clean that ccleaner doesn't do, then I cannot see Kcleaner becoming well known or well used as ccleaner is.

    Don't mean to be negative, but looking at it from a realistic perspective.

    However, if you are doing this project just for fun and for a challenge and trying to make a difference, and enjoy getting your program to the public, then as Phil Nike said, "Just do it" and go for it :) Wish you all the best.

    Well,i think Kyle can't get a better exposure to the world then here on the well known and respected Wilders forums.Sure his creations will be beaten to death,and thats a good thing,if anything will survive the critical and knowledgable Wilder members it should then one of the best in his class so everyone can benefit from it. :thumb:

    Hi Di,remember at the start there was just one CCleaner user.If it is good then it evolve from one into many dictated by the laws of appreciation and satisfaction,hmmmm......old news,destinied maybe Kyle to follow that course.

    Still not completely cleaning out temp files(other than internet).
    I'm not referring to the few seemingly locked files.
    Leftovers have ranged as high as 14.6mbs.

    ... and the peak's of the beginning on the graph - of the " CPU Usage History " ( look at Windows Task Manager ) - are now SMALL and IDENTICAL for both Core !

    You are from Department of Health, Kyle ?...:-*

    That's the reason for me to :
    - Detect more files in terms of disk space than any other disk cleaner (missing a few 2 Kb files is not really important)
    - Have more secured deletions methods than other disk cleaner. With all settings enabled, files deleted by KCleaner are not even SEEN by Recuvia, the Piriform file undeleter.

    I'm doing my best.... i simply hope that a few user will appreciate my efforts. I've made the software i've been looking for for ages without success.
