What's it all about


Recommended Posts

I am an average computer user who likes to keep the machine running as well as I can. I am not any sort of geek (I don't mean that maliciously) and I use the computer for everyday things, e-mail, Internet, letters, couple of very small databases etc, etc.

 

I have been using CCleaner for some time now having picked it up first on a computer magazine freebie disc. So far nothing untoward has happened and CCleaner tells me it has analaysed and cleaned a lot of rubbish off the machine. Wonderful, more space and the machine works well.

 

But what is it all. What do all the headings under the Windows tab mean individually and what does each of them do, what effect will they have that I can't see if I turn each off or on, which are specifically recommended, those that are a good idea and those which are take it or leave it.

 

I know it will be a big reply but it could be a permanent feature on the Help site for us everyday users.

Hi and welcome to the forum. A quick note. This is ccleaner suggestions. Next time post a question like this in CCleaner Discussion :)

 

There is already answers to your question. There are pages and pages of documentation already. For some body to sit here and write in detail what ever thing does would be a waste of time. And just a repeat of what's already been said.

 

if you have a specific question, then i'm sure you will get a detailed answer. But it is just unrealistic for some body to write up what you are asking.

 

Here is ccleaners documentation.

There's also some useful descriptive stuff on the old "CCleaner Beginners Guide", which is still available here:

Between this and the new documentation, you'll be an expert in no time. :)

 

If after reading this stuff you still have areas you're totally unsure of, just post back. Far better to ask advice before you do anything as opposed to asking "how do I fix this" afterwards?

:)
