  1. Tirum: "... c:\temp ... is not the default folder in Windows and usually no folder with this path, only you have it created and set manually" Correct. "to you mean c:\windows\temp?" No. mta: " I change my USER and SYSTEM %temp% and %tmp% variables and CC cleans them fine." Mine don't. " untick those 24 hour boxes to allow CC to clean more recent files. " I only want the older files deleted. There are .tmp files in both places from 2016 -- they remain. "for the two %temp% and %tmp% folders, CC will remove all contents regardless, for other folders it only removes files that meet its criteria; like tmp, log, wer files etc. so your %temp% files probably have stuff left because your 24 hours box is ticked. and your original %temp% folder (c:\users\xxx\appdata\local\temp) still has contents because, despite the name, it is now just a 'normal' folder and will only get cleansed for those file type that trigger CC's rules." See above. At may now be a normal folder, but it is a common Windows "temp" folder, which, actually (based on the dates), some programs still use! I think these are things that might make CCleaner better. Thank you all for your interest.
  2. "Only delete files in Windows temp folders older than 24 hours" is checked. Maybe CC should look at %TEMP% since that is what most programs use. %TEMP% ("C:\Temp") had many TMP and LOG files, and many older than a week.
  3. Sorry for the delay in responding. Life got in the way. I tried this on 2 machines: #1: "C:\Temp" and #2: "C:\Users\xxxx\AppData\Local\Temp" I just noticed that on the machine where %TEMP% points to "C:\Temp", "C:\Users\xxxx\AppData\Local\Temp" has files from 2016. Have not Safe Moded. Just tried v5.41. It may have cleaned "C:\Temp", but not "C:\Users\xxxx\AppData\Local\Temp". I see that there is a new version. Just installed 5.46 -- same thing -- neither "C:\Users\xxxx\AppData\Local\Temp" nor %TEMP ("C:\Temp") get cleaned. If I "Include" (under "Options") %TEMP%, the folder ("C:\Temp") does get cleaned. Thanks.
  4. No. They haven't been in use for months.
  5. Some files & folders were from last year.
  6. Lately, I have found that CCleaner seems to NOT clean the subfolders in the %TEMP% folder, even if it is "Included". It used to.
  7. Greetings! Portable 2.02.527 doesn't seem to run when invoked from the command line with "CCleaner /auto". "CCleaner" does bring up the GUI. 2.01 works. Thanks.
  8. Greetings! I received an email that had a link and invited me to download v1.39.502. However, the link download v1.38, and I cannot find where to download v1.39. Am I missing something? Thanks. - Mark
