    Ccleaner has gone the way of others that have gotten to big for their britches.
    They are now cramming the Google Browser down
    our throats. 1st I don't like any company telling me what to do on my puter. Everything should be elective. I use K-meleon and am quite happy with it.
    So now I will have to start looking for another
    program or do it by hand like I used to do.
    Pity....

    Thanks for the address. I couldn't find it on the regular Piriform site.
    I just hope it works like the old one did....

    Not really "cramming the Google Browser down our throats", more offering it as an installation option. I don't mind things like this when it comes to freeware, especially great freeware as CCleaner is.

    Naturally, I bypass this altogether and use the slim installer (as mentioned above).

    Alternatives for Ccleaner:

    ATF Cleaner
    Temp File Cleaner

    Both have been recommended at malware cleaning forums.
