Has CCleaner done anything bad to anyones computer? and if so why?
Yes it cleared my prefetch folder, slowing my whole computer down. Why? Because the author of CCleaner does not understand how prefetching works.

Since you're so smart why don't you make your own program like CCleaner?

News Flash

Bill Gates plans on removing the prefetch feature in Longhorn -Vista ;D CCleaner to now use "X's" cross

instead of ticks for option choice as well as a mail-to link for user opinions. Poll which

do you prefer the X or the tick ???

The dead horse was flogged so much that it came to life very slowly to prefetch the feed  ;D  and on the

way someone was forced to reboot sorry boot the horse into action. the horse after all was a very

good friend of Bill Gate$$ and the guys from CCleaner

I can take the prefetch cleaning option out of CCleaner and repackage it but that would violate the owners copyright. Besides why make a new program when all you need is for one useless setting to be removed.

Cleanup! is even worse it just deletes the whole prefetch folder. I can't figure out why so many people who write these programs are fooled so easily.

You should be telling everything about this prefetch issue on the CCleaner forums don't you agree? ;) You obviously know what you're talking about maybe they will listen to you there and remove the option from the program....who knows... But i know this for sure WE can't do anything about that , this is avast! forum after all...

And the GUI is sooooo ugly.....

I've tried myself and got banned too. I recommend CCleaner all the time but now have to tell people to uncheck that option and spend far too much time explaining why. I don't expect anything to be done here other then inform others so they can do the same. Maybe then something might change. Well if makes everyone feel better I recommend Avast all the time too but I'm tired of hearing people recommending AVG. ::)

They have been actively deleting topics on it, locking them and banning people. No discussion is allowed it seems.

And that's so sad and they should be ashamed. HAve they heard about the freedom of the speach ? Especially when someone is talking sense ? Erasing prefetching folder does nothing good, period.

And why you people are so conservative ? Why don't you let the guy say and explain everything ? As you all see his knowledge is far ahead, are we affraid of new and bright people all of a sudden ? I've noticed many came into these forums lately with some announcements for their freeware (useful btw) programs, and all that happened, our bunch came to scare him right away... is that the way how these forums works now ?

I don't think so... and that's the core of the problem why many good forum members left these forums without thinking. All this became so boring, and people are tired of this.

Let the guy talk if he wants. I personaly can't find even one single thing he said that could be characterized as insult or something. He is just trying to explain how prefetching works. Is it too hard to try to understand it, or we don't wanna learn something new ? Remember, many thinks that they are most clever people in the world, and those won't let other speak.

Mastertech, I don't care what others will say, I'm with you on this one, and I see exactly what are you pointing here.

Too many friends of mine already left these forums... too sad...

However, in my case, my browser starts up with less time than letting me use a stopwatch while I disabled the Prefetch function...  :(
