Queston about clearing Windows .tmp files in CCleaner Posted March 6, 2006 Hi, I just installed CCleaner 1.27.260 slim on my 98se computer and it all went well (except after cleaning the Windows/Applications area) when I tried to right-click on my desktop I got the hourglass and c/a/d showed Explorer wasn't responding. I was able to reboot and everything was okay. I then scanned the registry, backed up, and fixed. I am very impressed with CCleaner! I would like to install CCleaner on our XPHomesp2 computer and have a few questions: I have read that if CC Cleaner cleans the C\Windows\PCHealth\helpCTR\offline cache index.dat, the result is that when you try to access msinfo.exe you get the Windows Help instead and can't access msinfo. Has this problem been fixed? (When I ran CC on 98, if I right-clicked on an item in analyze I got the option to "copy to txt". I didn't see any way to de-select an item in this area.) Also, on the Dell 8400 computer, in my C\Windows\Temp area, besides .tmp files, are History, Cookies, Internet Temp. File folders and many, many .mst files - and a very large Drivers folder. I manually deleted the .mst files and driver folder once and they were all recreated. These .mst files were created when the computer was built. And, about 2 months ago I deleted some files from the C/Windows/Temp and Temp.Internet Files and when I deleted them from the recycle bin my icons changed on the desktop, I couldn't reboot or shut down the computer and I ended up doing a system restore. Based on the above, is there a way for me to use CCleaner safely on the XP computer? Also, I noticed in the options a setting to not delete tmp files under 48 hours old (so if that's not checked, will it delete a file 2 hours old?) Thank you.
