May I add some caution using CCleaner on Windows 7. Two months ago I downloaded CC and after running the application the windows explorer.exe (not IE explorer) failed to start displaying instead a msgBox which the following text "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Please install a program or, if one is already installed, create an association in the Default Programs control panel." After downloading a fix and having re-established the explorer.exe programs assossiation I run CCleaner again, for I suspected it to be the cause of this problem, and without fail CCleaner did disable the explorer.exe programs assossiation on each occasion, assumedly cleaning out a valid registry entry.
A registry fix for this problem is available @:

Good Article. I am using CCleaner since last 1 year and is very satisfy. I have just use CCenhancer and it worked well. But two questions:
1. It say more than 500 applications, but I can see only a few, o I suppose only those applications which are installed on my PC, show up in that list. Am I right ?
2. Whats * at end of apps name?

@Justmast.
Suggestion. You will probably get some answers if you ask your questions in a new thread.
Good luck.....

@ Drizzle: Thats not a new question, I think. Thats just a part of the discussion ongoing.
Thank You.

Might be, but Kate is right. And this is meant as a tutorial so an ongoing discussion would clutter things. Therefore I will now close this thread and any more questions can be asked in a new topic ;)
