clean-up utility

by TJRatfink / May 18, 2005 2:30 PM PDT

I'm looking to download a ''cleanup/tuneup'' utility that can get rid of old files (internet and otherwise), jpegs/mpegs, etc. McAfee had a nice online thing a few years back that req'd an annual subscription but it's since been discontinued. Who has a recommendation for a good download that fits these parameters?

Better to use CCleaner

Hi all ,

It's better to use CCleaner ( Crap Cleaner ) , it's a freeware program which DOES NOT have any spyware/adware in it.

I use it since a while and it works well.

It scans your computer for files that you don't need , like Temporary Internet Files , Temporary Files and logs and stuff.

You can download CCleaner at http://www.ccleaner.com .

It's a very good program.
It even scans your Windows Register for errors and stuff.

A worth to download , trust me.

Greetings ,
