My computer club highly recommends using CCleaner. I've been using it for a couple of years and have found no problems.

Yes it's safe. Just don't use the registry cleaner function and you'll be fine.

I have never found any use for CCleaner. Most of what it deletes can be deleted manually, if really needed. Most importantly, stay away from the registry cleaning option.

I have little use for registry cleaners, but run CCleaner's once in a while. It must be pretty benign as it usually finds no issues at all.

5.tune up utilities
6.pc pro
7.system doctor
8.pc cleaner
9.pc booster
10.advanced system care

but it didn't helped me.their main purpose is to develop pc but instead it destroys it.it caused many problems to my system even though i got it from a very trusted source. So please dont use anything except system tools by your default windows os
I have been using my default windows cleaner but it doesn't clean much (it might be the virus) the only reason I am uing ccleaner is because my diskspace keeps dropping due to my virus.What is the best settings for ccleaner?what should and would shouldn't I check or uncheck? I won't use the registry part, I remember using the registry part when I had windows 98, big mistake.
