Ccleaner question

I've been using CCleaner on my win10 laptop, but just added it to my Vista desktop, which is shared by my wife and myself. Do I need to run this app on both mine and hers, or does running it on mine (administrator) clean the entire computer?

I did an analysis on my Vista VM from my admin account and with the exception of my firefox instance (which is shared by both accounts) it only showed system files or files for that user so it looks like you will have to run from both accounts. I do not recommend that you run the registry cleaner.

I don't know for sure but it should have access to everything if run from an admin account.

Welcome
CCleaner DOES clean only one account at a time. Malwarebytes will clean all accounts in paid version only. Townsbg is correct when suggesting that you do not use a registry cleaner. It is not needed and may cause more problems than it solves.
