Welcome to the CCleaner forums Stoffrld. :)

 

You should remove your email address from plain sight because spammers can exploit it and send you hordes of spam.

 

If you don't want URL's ("browsing history"), cookies, etc., deleted from your browser just uncheck the whole browser in CCleaner, it will be in bold blue text. That "should" have CCleaner leave it alone and not clean it at all.

 

Of course this means you'll have to use the browsers own built-in cleaning utilities to deal with temporary internet files ("cache"), and cookies.

 

If you want to save specific cookies in Internet Explorer do the following:

In CCleaner: Click Options->Cookies then use the "->" button to move cookies into the Cookies to keep list.

If you are going to post your e-mail address on a public forum, you might want to use address munging techniques to avoid spam.
