    For those who do not know me, i'm the developper of SUMo, a popular software on Wilder's forums, detailed here : https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=314623

    Let me introduce another free software of mine to you : KCleaner

    It is a tiny application (small memory footprint) than helps you keeping your system clean of unwanted / temporary files.
    It has a manual mode and an automatic mode which periodically scans and clean you computer.

    KCleaner is designed to be the most efficient Hard Disk cleaner, tracking every useless byte in order to give you all the ressources you may need for your documents, music, pictures, movies,...
    It is the first product of this kind featuring a full automatic mode, which works in background so that you don't have to care about when to launch it.
    As a proof of its efficiency, it often finds up to many Gb not even seen by its competitors so... give KCleaner a try ! And if data security is something you are interested in, you'll love the secured file deletion methods proposed by KCleaner, making deleted files unrecoverable by any known mean.

    Hi Kyle.
    Ver portable (OS Windows XP SP 3):

    Immagine3.JPG

    Example.
    I selected only "MSN".
    Why does not clean up the files to zero bytes ?
    With the setting "Default files types" there little KB to delete inside my system:

    ________________________________________________________________________

    But with the setting "Check all" so "Hotfixes/service packs unistallers" my setting usual with CCleaner,there are many MB to delete:

    It's safe used this setting ?
    TH.

    p.s. admin privileges are required.

    L'EXE portable is not signed ?
    Please verify.
    Is not good inside the account SUA.

    Its the same kind of tool but finds more files to clean.
    To be used in addition to CCleaner, IMHO

    With all due respect,but finding more does not always mean it is cleaning safely.

    A bit like registry cleaners.
    The more they find the more it can do harm.

    Sure ! That's why i recommand to run "analyse", then to control the list before cleaning.

    But i use KCleaner on my PCs daily and this freeware is downloaded 100-300 times a day and noboby ever reported and unsafe condition when using default settings.
    Concerning Hotfixes uninstaller : i personally delete then in order to recover disk space as it is more than unlikely that i would have to remove a hotfix.

    Kyle,
    does it remove .DAT Files?

    Kind of reminds me of Privacy Mantra

    I select "Check All".
    No problem.

    I manually delete the folders MSN.
    Windows Installer Duplicate is non erasable:

    I like it. Simple, fast and powerful. And nicer interface than Bleachbit, i'd use it instead if it was fully portable ;)

    KCleaner looks promising, but I'd use it with caution. Even in non-expert mode there are things checked that could create problems. Cookies for example, and there doesn't seem to be a way to distinguish between cookies to keep and cookies to delete. Also the Firefox cache. I couldn't find a detailed user's guide, either in the program or on the website, maybe it's there and I didn't see it. The Forum doesn't look like it's had time enough to develop into something useful at this point. While I can appreciate the work that's gone into it already, I think it still needs a little more development before it's competition for CCleaner.

    I'll improve and make it clearer.
    Concerning cookies, would you like an "exception" mechanism ?

    A cookie exception option would be good. If you want to stay logged in to a website and you delete its cookie then you have to log in again. And sometimes if a website has a popup and you close it, you have to save the cookie or the next time you visit that site you get the popup again.
