  1. I guess this topic should be permanently closed. The problem has been fixed in the new version...CCleaner v2.12.660 Thanks to the developer for listening to us, your followers, and for continuously improving this great utility.
  2. If this is a safety feature, why would i be allowed to delete *.tmp in the "c:\windows" folder and not in the "c:\" folder? This is defenitely overlooked by the developers.... Disk4mat also did his own testing and found out this behaviour to be weird. The basic question is, in the CCleaner.ini Include line, why allow "c:\windows |*.tmp" but not allow "c:\|*.tmp"? Can you explain? Anyone can explain please?
  3. CCleaner V2.11.636 Still cannot delete tmp file in the root folder. Maybe the developer can just HARD CODE the delete command if they don't know how to fix this bug.
  4. Hi folks, Can anyone help me how to configure CCleaner to delete tmp files in the root of a drive? (i.e. C:\) I posted this question in another thread but there is no progress after 3 days. Refer to this: http://forum.piriform.com/index.php?showtopic=17166
  5. I also tried to change the Windows Environment User Variable to "TMP = C:\" just to test whether CC actually retrieve this info and use it as parameter during the cleaning. CC didn't clean the root folder as well! If CCleaner is designed to behave like this, it must be a FEATURE! Not a BUG! a very special feature because other cleaners don't behave like this.
  6. I beg to disagree with u Disk4mat. I still think it's a BUG. To refute your argument, this is how i tested. 1. Create a file inside C:\WINDOWS folder. (in my case, i created CCleaner.k99) 2. include "*.k99" in the CCleaner.ini (Include2=PATH|C:\windows\|*.k99) 3. Check the includes screen to confirm the configuration 4. Run CCleaner. The result of my test is attached. The CCleaner.k99 file inside C:\WINDOWS folder is deleted! WILDCARD is accepted by CCleaner. What happens if i include "*.dll" in the CCleaner.ini? It's equally dangerous as adding "*.dll" in the ROOT of a drive, rig
  7. Davey, the files i want to delete is randomly created so there is no way i will know the filename of the next tmp file to be created. Try to read Disk4mat's post and understand how he experimented. He included "*.tmp" in the include line inside the CCleaner.ini... the same way as i did. Try to UNDERSTAND the issue please before you reply. Perform a proper TESTING.... and for GOD's sake, it's a .tmp file i want to delete. Can u particularly pinpoint which program uses .tmp as a propietory file extention? There could be countless of programs which uses the .tmp file extention as a temporary file
  8. Finally, someone actually walk the talk! Thanks Disk4mat for actually experimenting to see the real issue. A lot of us in this forum simply suggest things without really understanding the problem and trying the solutions we suggest. Anyways, how do we report the BUG to the CC developer?
  9. Andavari, I took note on you being the moderator of this forum. Apparently, my CCleaner issue is a BUG! You can check Disk4mat's post: http://forum.piriform.com/index.php?showto...mp;#entry112027 By the way, I didn't notice any dedicated guidelines on how to report a bug. Is there a formal way to report a BUG?
  10. Augeas, I understand that the tmp files may have been created by some applications. I'm just confused on what you said that "CC cleans known system and popular application temp files from known locations. If it tries to clean files where it doesn't know what created them (as in the case of .tmp files on the c drive) it would be asking for trouble." As suggested by Disk4mat, I have included this line; "Include1=PATH|C:\|*.tmp " in my CCleaner.ini. By including this line, I thought i am letting CC know the location and the files to delete. Is this line particularly asking for trouble that
  11. Hazelnut, The first time I encountered the issue, I have tried all the advance settings of CCleaner.... the key-word is "ROOT FOLDER" not "WINDOWS\Temp" folder!. I think nobody really understand what I'm trying to say... Did u try my suggestion to manually create a tmp file?
  12. Whether the tmp file is created by malware, spyware, adware or any other program, the issue remains that CCleaner should delete those files. The title of my post is "CCleaner cannot delete tmp file in C:\ root folder" so I would love to hear/read a reply on how to configure CCleaner to delete the tmp files. I have configured my CCleaner as suggested by earlier posts and run CCleaner but the files are still not deleted. If i delete the files manually in the explorer view, there is no problem... no message from the OS that the files are being used by a program. The best way to prove my point is
  13. I don't think it's caused by a malware. I have encountered this issue in all windows XP pc. The root folder will always have a zero byte tmp files after using the system for a while. i've seen these zero byte files in my home pc, my work pc, my laptop, few client pc's... all in running windows xp pro. I think it's a CCleaner BUG!
  14. Sorry, I misquote your name. Anyways, Thanks Disk4mat.
