  1. When you check off the "Automatically check for updates" in the latest version of CCleaner it doesn't actually check this option off within Options -> Settings. I only seem to see this on computers that don't have CCleaner installed on them previously
  2. Thanks for the welcome Most peoples computers who I end up cleaning question what an installer actually is to begin with, hence the suggestion. The tool definitely shouldn't delete them on its own, that's why I said it should list them and you could be able to decide. But even with this the creators of ccleaner would have to find some way to search for installer files, which are never always named "installer" "install" etc, so I am not quite sure how probable it is anyways
  3. On a countless number of times where I have been called to cleanup a clients PC the first thing I see on their desktop and most sub folders are the endless amounts of random installers that are left over and never deleted. These include Itunes, CCleaner installers <- which you would expect CCleaner to at least delete its own installer, AOL installers, etc. The installer files take up a bulk amount of space when they're left around. Obviously some people would want the option to keep certain versions of installers, and possibly larger installers that they don't want to have to re download. This is why you could possibly make a separate tab for this option under tools. Maybe a "Old Installer Cleanup" tab of sorts. It could scan and list all installer files and that way you could check/uncheck whichever installer files you wanted to keep/delete. Now whether something like this is even possible or not is beyond me, that's why I am posting here! I've been looking around for something like this for a while, and figured the best cleaner tool around should have the best utilities in it as well.
  4. Probably bumping an old thread but here's something for the tech people interested who haven't heard of it yet http://it.toolbox.com/blogs/locutus/instan...-for-free-14663 The link describes a defrag over a domain, however I use the same tools for ccleaner, and eset nod32 since both have command line options. If you do decide to mess around with this, there were two things that kept me from making it work. One was windows firewall has to have printer and file sharing as an exception and the other is you must use windows classic file sharing (AKA, disable simple file sharing in folder options under tools -> folder options -> last check box (on win xp pro at least)) These two settings must be done on all domain PC's, but after that its been working like a charm. And you don't even need to logon each computer to do it
