Iv not seen CCleaner remove passwords before unless the boxes for saved passwords was actually ticked and by default it is not so i dont know what you've done there but something isnt right.

Like I said I didn't tick anything.  I don't know about the default settings.  I just ran the scan so would that be the default?

I didn't touch anything.  I did a search for CCleaner but can't remember the website I downloaded it from.

Well, by default in the Windows tab, passwords aren't checked on the list for removals. The same appears to be correct in the Applications tab, passwords are unchecked. So I have no idea where your passwords went.

Neither do I.  Didn't remember my password for this forum either.

I rather suspect that you deleted cookies, as they may also contain the information so you don't have to log on every time. That is distinctly different from the 'Saved Passwords' option in ccleaner, e.g. those which you have your browser remember/save.

You're probably right.  I don't know all that much about these different cleaners so I would be afraid to use any of them.

May I suggest you do some digging around the GUI to learn more. There are also help files.
I have CCleaner to clean some cookies and leave some alone.  :)
