    I've been asking myself that very same question for 11 years now, Rainwalker. :confused:

    The software's been on my machines for a little less than one week. I like it a lot, but truth be told, I may be more relieved to have finally gotten rid of CCleaner than I am happy about Privacy Eraser. I have no complaints so far, and have had nothing but success with it to date.

    Funny! I understand. CCleaner was great while it lasted. Oh well, we've seen all that before.
    Congrats Page on your post 6000.

    I for one see PE as the best CC replacement out there. After I wiped CC out of my machines I tried a couple of other cleaners since then and finally ended up with PE best suiting my needs and being most similar to CC. Using it several months already and no a single issue happened. The added value is that PE is being regularly maintained and developed.

    While the interface is a bit childish Privacy Eraser has the potential to become an excellent CCleaner alternative. Right now I prefer Wise Disk Cleaner because I can see the exact files that are going to be removed.

    This is sorta my own routine. Wise Disk Cleaner is definitely proved more transparent IMO and more user friendly with less chance of error.

    I have been using PE ever since CC became unreliable.

    I really liked it from the start and it's so easy to use and the ability to keep needed cookies is great too. It does everything I want and it gets updated every month. Wonderful software and for me it's a perfect alternative for CC which will never go back on my machine.

    I just started testing PE on my spare laptop. So far I like it, but I noticed all entries under Windows/Advanced Options are unchecked by default. Which entries can I safely enable?

    I've got all ticked except for Windows Size and Location Cache, depends on what information/settings you'd like to keep though all can safely be ticked.

    Thanks. I'll probably leave prefetch option unchecked as well.

    After the slow-down problem with CCleaner when keeping it from calling home, I tried PE which pretty much covers what CC does, but what I don't like is you can't look at the details about which files are going to be deleted. This has saved me a few times. Also, you can't exclude it from cleaning the registry which I also don't like. I guess I'll pass on this one.

    Have you tried BleachBit 4.0? It’s open source.

    Slow slow to open, firewall reports rundill wants to connect i have it blocked.
    Opens faster in safe-mode. Make me wonder?:doubt: Cliton might have bought it out?
    Nothing wrong with the ui, just lack of features such as Waterfox.

    I did, but I couldn't get it to work like CCleaner. It also has a problem when things are not in the defaulr path. Supposedly, you can update the xml files, but I couldn't get it to work. Thunderbird doesn't show because it's considered irrelevant.You have to enable irrelevant profiles to see them. Too much work for what I need.
