    Crap Cleaner, a great little program that can clean the following:
    Internet Explorer Cache, History, Cookies, Index.dat.
    Recycle Bin, Temporary files and Log files.
    Recently opened URLs and files.
    Third-party application temp files and recent file lists (MRUs).
    Including: Firefox, Opera, Media Player, eMule, Kazaa, Google Toolbar, Netscape, Office XP, Nero, Adobe Acrobat, WinRAR, WinAce, WinZip and more...
    Advanced Registry scanner to remove unused and old entries (includes backup).
    Including File Extensions, ActiveX Controls, ClassIDs, ProgIDs, Uninstallers, Shared DLLs, Fonts, Help Files, Application Paths, Icons, Invalid Shortcuts and more...

    It comes with a link that is quite the same as Add/remove programs.

    Anyway, you can get it here:

    Thanks,
    Alan

    Agreed, its an excellent utility, simple to understand & use.

    Many others, much more knowledgeable than me, also recommend it :)

    I used it on a used computer I bought.
    Really great for getting rid off that unwanted clutter someone else left behind (y)

    CCleaner is the best I have used. Never takes out things I need. Have had some messes with other cleaners to the point of having to do a reformat of Windows. CCleaner is the safest and the best for me. I highly recommend it.

    Good.

    I think I like this program but would like it better if a kind soul would please list the things to "clean".
    I downloaded it and cleaned everything (before reading Alan's second post :eek: ) and that kinda sorta messed me up for a bit, so I got everything back again by restoring the backup or whatever it's called :eek: .
    Now I am afraid to let it clean without knowing what is safe to clean :eek:

    No rush, though. I am slowly learning to read lots first and click second (y) :D
