Sorry to hear that you are having problems with CCleaner.


Unfortunately, we haven't been able to reproduce this problem.


We have changed TMP and TEMP and after logging off we were able to clean the right folder.


Can you please provide more details of the steps you are taking so we can reproduce the problem?

hi MrT


before we go too far let me ask you this; i have the system TEMP variables pointing to the root of a partition (d:\) rather than a directory (d:\temp) and i'm wondering if this is the problem? i'm asking because i see in options > custom files... you cannot add the root of a drive/partition




this is, in fact, the problem. CC doesn't like it when you point the TEMP directory to the root of a drive (as from computer > properties > advances > system vars).


i changed the directory (both user and system) from D:\ to D:\TEMP and all is well


sorry for the trouble :)
