    you're crying about something EVERYONE that owns software already knows. with that said countmike IS wrong, ccleaner even with the recent events Is a great program. as for it going "overboard" on cleaning, NOT! every aspect of ccleaner can be set, so if it's going "overboard" it's cause someone set it up wrong. as for can cause more damage thank a "chainsaw" sure if you're stupid enough to use the registry cleaner part of it. registry cleaners should never be used.
    As you know its quite normal for people to have different opinions about most subjects, that's why when ya buy a car they have many different colours, or if you want a wife they also come in many sizes & shapes..... ain't life great? Well at least it is 4me. :)

    It is not about stupidity but about experience as I said. Only partly quoting my sentence is disengenuous and takes my comment out of context.

    Really? Please show me where in Edge I can selectively delete all cookies except the login cookies for TenForums and my bank account.

    I personally get round that by the simple act of not using Edge

    You should of course if using the registry cleaner in Ccleaner always save the backup, personally I wouldn't bother with cleaning the registry, having checked out a few cleaners without actually deleting anything, they all seem to have different ideas on what to delete, Ccleaner appears to only scratch the surface compared to some of them however it could still cause problems. IMO If you don't know what you are doing which requires some knowledge of what these registry entries that are being deleted do, then avoid registry cleaners.

    Last time I used Cc it found 7 obsolete entries in Registry and all of them were about something temporary on internet. Because of some improperly uninstalled drivers, I'm sure that there were many bad entries. I just chased them down and deleted them manually. Cc didn't do squat about them.

    To the best of my memory, most paid for programs there is a expiration date.
    This is not new. It's been that way for a long time.

    It's kind of like leasing a car. You can't keep it after the lease time expires unless you renew the lease at a price.

    A long time ago I bought Malwarebytes Life Time. That can no longer be done.
    Today when one buys Malwarebytes it comes with a expiration date.
    How do I know this? Easy, I read the users agreement.
