  1. Just some further information. The section that doesn't seem to match between analysis and cleaning is "System - Temporary Files". It seems to be no cleaning up files in C:\Documents and Settings\user\Local Settings\Temp although it lists them in the initial analysis. E.
  2. Hi, I find when I run the cleaner Analyze, it will say it has something like 50MB to remove, but when I Run Cleaner it only says it removed 7MB (example values only). If I run Analyze again after that is says there is nothing to be removed. Seems a strange discrepancy. Any ideas? Evan
  3. While a little off topic, a couple of things I've learned to try when Window's Internet Time thingy wont work, which you may find handy to do. Make sure the time zone for the computer is set correctly. Set the date and time to within a minute or two of the correct time. Then try updating the time via the Internet Time tab. It usually works at this point for me. You may also what to take a look at the NTP Pool Project and sync off available time servers in your local area.
  4. While writing my previous suggestion, I thought of another useful area the CCleaner could clean up crap from, that that would be the oft' overlooked environment variables. For the uninitiated, you can view these by selecting System from the control panel (or right-click on My Computer and select Properties), go to the Advanced tab, and click the Environment Variables button near the bottom. At the very least, removing non-existent folders from the "Path" variable would be handy. You could also possibly do similar for other well known path variables such as CLASSPATH. Possibly also verify other common variables point to valid files or folders, such as JAVA_HOME, TEMP, TMP, HOME, ComSpec and windir to name a few. What do you think?
  5. Saw this article on a little program that cleans what it calls "Past Icons" from the registry. The first thing I thought when reading this was, "I wonder if CCleaner does this?"
