    I've been using ccleaner but just realized (duh!) that it only cleans the current user account. This is fine for my pc but quite a pain on my kids' pcs which use multiple accounts. anyone know a decent, preferably free or at least reasonable, cleaner that will catch all accounts on a single pass?

    thanks!

    ATF cleaner is widely used around here. It cleans "All users temp"

    Doesn't seem to clean internet cache, cookies, etc for all users. Surely something out there does?

    Can you just set the browser on each of those accounts to empty those files when shut down?

    Yea, that seems the only answer at this point. Thanks for the tip, I didn't realize IE could be set to do that but now I see it can.

    Not sure if this will help or not- but you can schedule Ccleaner to run automatically. I am not sure if it will run automatically on a LUA if the Admin account is being used at the time though. Also, I doubt this works on Vista.

    You may also want to check if either of these programs will clean all accounts at once-

    I believe that in CCleaner you can go to Options, then Include and select the folders you want to include. I include the history, temp and temporary internet files for all the user accounts on my PC. Then when I run CCleaner all user accounts are cleaned up. I don't have CCleaner here at work so I am working from memory. Hope that is correct.

    Thanks for all the tips guys. I finally ended up going with Mil Shield. Seems to do a nice job. Wasn't free but a single license covers all your PCs:
