    Ccleaner

    An excellent application uninstaller and file system cleaner. It just came top in PC Pro's latest app test for uninstallers.

    www.ccleaner.com

    It's very nice.

    Re: Ccleaner

    It's frickin annoying!

    You know that it deletes the Windows prefectch folder contents. That's OK if you want XP to get slow again (prefetch is quite an important technology in XP and in Vista too with its Super Prefetch). I think they have moved this little feature to the "Advanced" section and disabled it by default, but it doesn't warn you when you do turn it on. I even know some people who delete the prefecth folder by choice--hahahah! It also has problems with messing up file extensions on some systems- do a Google search. File processing is slower than some alternatives.

    I refuse to use little applications like this and just go route one- re-image. I might occasaionally use it on my one windows machine at home- but I don't use that much at all now. It's a decent application if you don't mind something abstract wrking away at your file system the way it does.

    :-)

    Also worth looking at Defraggler from the same company, I use both when working on PCs.

    And what happens if you untick the box to clear out old prefetch data?

    I have used this for years and its awesome. Didn't actually realise that there was a network version. Worth a look.
