Prompted by this thread:
https://community.ccleaner.com/topic/60419-how-do-i-exclude-a-software-from-updates/?tab=comments#comment-328834

Allow exclusions to be set in Software Updater for softwares that the user doesn't want updating.

Possibly a more radical policy change - Allow limited customisation of Health Check so that 'Security' can be disabled if a user doesn't want software update checks everytime they run it.
ie. Let it revert back to QuickClean/Easy Clean if that's what the user wants.
I can see a couple of way that that could be easilly achieved. (One is very simple and already known by some of the more advanced users, but as it involves a registry change I won't post it here, it's already mentioned in a link that I gave above).

+[however many votes it takes to make this reality]
I NEVER want to update Audacity again. Let me bar CCleaner from trying.

thanks,

Is there a log for scheduled cleaning of CCleaner?  If not, why not?  How does one know the cleaning got done as scheduled and what happened when CCleaner cleaned it.  Should this not be built in?  Am I missing something?

Logging doesn't exist, it would have to be implemented somehow by them either internally using an generic .log perhaps or something more nifty by placing it into Windows Event Viewer.

I would like to have a user selectable setting in CCleaner that permits the user to run only one copy of CCleaner is RAM at any one time.  This would prevent an accidental double click on app start icon from starting two copies of CCleaner at the same time

I think it's most likely that we'll only allow one instance of CCleaner to run by default (potentially with a special command-line arg to allow deliberate multiple instances if there's a strong reason to support this).

Include the ability to create Custom Locations for non-standard web browsers via the CCleaner GUI. It could be something as simple as a Browse button to find the browser Profile folder, that way there wouldn't be any need to edit ccleaner.ini or the Windows registry.

This is less likely. Cleaning browsers is actually pretty difficult; it's not just a case of deleting some files from specific folders. Browsers change incredibly rapidly and a lot of data is stored in parts of databases. Deleting the whole database will often catch other data you don't want deleted. Plus you can't delete most databases while being accessed by the browser itself.

More likely is supporting some custom cleaning rules and having a means to rate/endorse/promote/self-regulate these. We don't want to make it easy for people to break  their machines, we are open to the idea of more advanced and expert users extending the default cleaning in CCleaner.

It's likely that we'll allow better customization of analyse-resolve flows in the app, so you don't have to commit to everything at once.

As the (original) idea of CCleaner is to remove junkfiles, including logfiles, from your machine then having it create more logs itself would seem to be defeating the object.
(I'm sure I've seen posts by the staff themselves making that point in the past).

Having said that: recently we have seen a proliferation of CCleaner being able to create more logs itself, especially since the Driver Updater was introduced.

Worried about 'Tracking Files'? Worried about why some files come back after cleaning? See this link:

Fonts/Text Accessibility:
* Bigger fonts/text inside CCleaner, or the ability for users to change the size and even the color.
* Properly space and wrap text in the Results window so that it doesn't run off.

GUI Themes:
Ability to change colors or apply themes, both official and user/community created.

Now, this is very early days and I want to stress that this is merely a tech demo, but here is an early screenshot from CCleaner 6:

Before anyone asks, work on this is being done in parallel to CCleaner 5 work. We will continue to make improvements here as we build up CCleaner 6.

Keep the suggestions coming and maybe they'll appear in the next CC6 update! :P

I've been using Eno from Capitol One when shopping online using Chrome. It allows me to create a temporary card number so that I don't have to leave my actual number with the merchant. I would prefer to use CCleaner browser, but there seems to be no way to add this extension. Please make it available.
