Does CCleaner's performance weaken over time?

Recommended Posts

Dear forum members,

 

After several months of excellent performance (versions 1.38; 1.39; and now 1.40..), my copy of CCleaner seems to have lost its interest in my computer crap :(

According to the results I get daily from the routine scan by the

PC Scan and Sweep tool, the number of my junk + clutter files has been constantly increasing over the past few days. Needless to say that accordingly, the performance of my computer has been slowing down to. I tried to add to the cleaning process folders and files from other disk sections - not only the default harddrive C:, but also D: and E:,

but the program (CCleaner) warns me by saying that all added/custom files or folders will be removed and/or emptied, not just cleaned for clutter etc. So what am I supposed to do? How do I get the CCleaner to resume its excellent performance from some months ago? :unsure:

Any suggestion wil be greatly appreciated!

Best to all, Atnes

CCleaner only cleans the drive it is installed on. If you add D: & E: as custom folders it will delete every file on those drives, as far as I'm aware.

CCleaner only deletes specific junk on your main (C:) drive.

 

IE: It does not search the whole drive for junk it only removes from places its been told junk exists!

Try defragging your harddrive if you notice a slowdown in performance. Also, make sure you do virus and spyware scans regularly to make sure nothing is running in the background.
