    Need help on deleting files from ccleaner

    Hi,

    I use ccleaner to delete and would like to know if it is alright to delete those files that I am enclosing.


    Those checks are marked to be deleted, but is it alright to delete those? Also, the other without checks marked, are they also alright to delete or just leave them alone?



    Again, the same questions as above.




    Thanks!

    -captureclenaer-jpgWelcome
    I, too use Ccleaner and truly like it. Most people should just leave it on defaualt settings. I, however, do not tick system temporary files, since I noticed that with that checked and even with cookies unticked my IDs and automatic logins are deleted. That being said
    Memory dumps can be deelted, if you are not having problems with your computer. They are a record of what caused a BSOD.
    The same for error reporting, they can be deleted if error free performance.
    Everything else looks good.
    Be sure to go to the cookie listing and right click to do the intellient scan. This will save the cookies that you always use, such as those for logins. This however, does not work, if you have system temporary files ticked.
    You may review my settings, too.

    Everything is safe to delete, but it may not be to your liking, since it is personal taste. I think that your settings are fine.

    Ok, thanks for your help.


    As for Registry, I just leave those alone.

    CC is known to be safe on registry, but I dont tick any of those entries. It is not needed and may cause problems. Just use cleaner to get rid of the junk.
