CCleaner

Note by me:
You can also use the update link on the program itself. There is no need to uninstall the old one, the installer will just update your version so you won't lose your settings and shortcuts.

By this you mean that you install on top of the old version but you still need the full software download, right?

oops, I didn't see this thread until just now, sorry LOL.Just to explain a little more.  It's the same download either way but a lot of people will uninstall the old one which means that you have to do the shortcuts and whatever settings you have over again. If you DON'T uninstall it the installer will see that and just overwrite your old one, including the shortcuts and the settings. I use it to manage cookies too so I prefer to do it that way so I don't have to do all the cookies over again. For anyone that does not have an old version, you still use the same download. I hope that explains it better or maybe will confuse you more. I guess Gordon's answer was better. LOL  :D

Thanks, Roddy. Your answer is perfect -- as was your post -- I just wanted to confirm 'cause my brain wasn't absorbing properly.  (kinda like "operator error"  -- this was a case of brain malfunction.)

Awe, thanks, Sweetie. 

For the record though, some people have had problems with CCleaner, others have had problems with Cleanup!  With CCleaner, I recommend starting with "Analyze".  Then look at the list to be certain of what is being removed.  I also do not recommend using the "Issues" section unless you know what you are removing and have checked the option to always do a registry backup first.

i agree 110% on that one Corrine!!!!

the" issues" is a registry cleaner and they do make mistakes!

hopefully in a while i won't worry as I'll be a linux guy and will be able to cut way down on the amount of anti-crap programs i have  ;-D
