I guess I'm a Glutton for punishment, and I know this topic can/will make some 'natives' respond, but here goes.
Saw THIS REVIEW today. Very INTERESTING... and I will check it out.
Note, I've done some 'damage' to myself before cleaning out things I didn't think mattered, they did, so 'deep cleaning' might cause more problems.
I did run it and unchecked many of the pre-selected boxes. The results under PREVIEW are :
Disk space to be recovered: 2.67GB
Files to be deleted: 20297
Special operations: 58
Have not tried to figure out what 'Special operations' are yet? Web page doesn't seem to define it?
So I ran CCleaner to see what it thinks it has to do?
Made sure I had the lastest, 3.28 and used it as I normally would and it found 6.9GB's to remove???? However this is in less that 15,000 files? Obviously there are a few differences where and what each is searching for?
I notice some 'similarities' and a lot of .BAK files in each. Only problem I have is some of those might actually be worthwhile keeping if I need to 'roll' something back.
At this point with such a wide conflict, I'm not sure I'd like to even try EITHER one?
OK, fire away.
P.S., In the above review is this:
In the introduction to this review I brought up CCleaner. I used to be really enthusiastic towards CCleaner, but as it has grown popular and has gotten pretty underwhelming and the installer has become riddled with crapware. I just cant handle that kind of thing.
Crapware in CCleaner? Did I not see anything? Haven't see anything about that in the Install or did I mess it? Their web page for CCleaner says "100% Spyware FREE This software does NOT contain any Spyware, Adware or Viruses.", huh?
