    People get very attached to their browsers , someone said they thought "Edge" would be used by 90% of all Win 10 users , i don't see that happening .

    I read on here somewhere that in OCT sometime, sp1, will have new features for Edge, including ability to install apps. If that is true then I will try it out again......

    That's right, SR1 is planned for October, we insiders already have parts of it in 10525 and 10532 updates but not much improvement in edge.
    That brings us back to topic, every update and upgrade leaves some data on disk for backup and eventual uninstall of those updates, so using Disk Cleaner from windows to get rid of it may save some more space.

    I did an experiment with CCleaner and here is what I found.
    Yesterday I cleaned installed W10 on my Laptop and when I installed CCleaner it offered Google and Google Toolbar and I opted-out and they were not installed. I uninstalled CCleaner today and when I installed it again I was NOT offered Google and Google Toolbar and again they were not installed. I went to my desktop and uninstalled CCleaner and again upon installing it it did not offer Google and Google Toolbar and again they were not installed. I am assuming that once you opt-out of Google and Google Toolbar it is not offered again. So when fredc said the opt-out is not there he is right on a system that had CCleaner previously.

    As it isn't required to register Ccleaner online, it probably was not uninstalled completely and some, either files, registry entries or parts of shared DLLs were left over. After a true uninstall, nothing of that would be left and installer would behave same as installed first time. Ccleaner is not only one that behaves like that.

    No chance, I've always used an alternative Browser since Netscape Navigator and this offering from MS won't change my mind. Firefox with plenty of buttons does me

    With reference to Eset and Ccleaner it's interesting to note that nothing is detected in Eset Nod32s default state, I would have thought a toolbar was more of an "unwanted application" rather than an "unsafe application"

    I've got Ccleaner installed and I'm still looking for these bloody toolbars it's supposed to have installed !

    OK, I'll take your word on that - it is a pretty big sidebar going here in a thread about cleaning up the hard drive. My intent was more to supplement interpretation of the ESET post you showed us and not to necessarily dispute whether the version of ccleaner you talked about was presenting an opt out that you were missing.

    +1 - Sandboxie is da bomb. I learned about that over at Wilders Security back in 2008 and, talk about pre-cleaning, it's like having Las Vegas on demand any time you feel like "going there"!
