Any computer experts that use this program could give me a quick rundown and tell me which options I should avoid having enabled? Gracias.

I just want to make sure I don't delete something important. I have Regedit unchecked in Applications tab.

"Saved Passwords" on any mail readers (such as thunderbird).

Turn off active monitoring. There is no reason to inform Piriform of everything you're doing.

Re: CCleaner v5.33.6162 and CCleaner Cloud v1.07.3191 Hacked

I have everything checked except:

Windows:

Autocomplete Form History
Saved Passwords
Network Passwords
Start Menu Shortcuts
Desktop Shortcuts
Menu Order Cache
Tray Notifications Cache
Window Size/Location Cache
Custom Files and Folders
Wipe Free Space


Applications:

Firefox:

Site Preferences
Saved Form Information
Saved Passwords

Same with Thunderbird (or whatever email client)

Everything else is checked.

Under Options/Settings, I always set up Secure File Deletion/3 passes, and check the 2 boxes (Wipe Alternate Data Streams & Wipe Cluster Tips).

Haven't had any issues on all the computers I've set this up on.


As always, YMMV.
