Alternates to Ccleaner

Post by dbt1949 »

I've been using Ccleaner for years now to clean up my computer. All of a sudden it won't even come on. I've uninstalled it and reinstalled the latest version. It worked one time and now doesn't come on.
I already have a good anti virus/spyware program that cleans up any of those things automatically as well as a protector.
No, I just want something to clean up my cookies and browser and history type thing.

Thanks.

Wise Disk Cleaner is an effective alternative to CCleaner, and ought to be a good choice if your primary concern is junk file clean-up.
"Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters." -- Daniel Webster

I have Malwarebytes Premium and I couldn't see where it works like Ccleaner.

Wise Disk Cleaner did not work either. Something must be not allowing these programs to work.

Okay now I see. I have to run as administrator.
Evidently Windows update has fucked this up too.

Still using CCleaner up to now...still works for me but if you want a sure way but manually...you can do disk cleanup utility by right clicking the drive you want to clean and hit properties.

I use UVK Portable for the junk/temp file stuff, then run ccleaner as an extra cleaner and if I'm troubleshooting or trying to speed things up I will use Ccleaners reg cleaner. UVK Has one, but I've never tried it. (UVK has a LOT of things in it for cleaning and troubleshooting.
