I think it does a good job for what I need it for and its relatively light on my system and has NEVER screwed my machines up.

    So, to answer your original question, Yes I think Ccleaner is worth it as far as the free version is concerned. You really don't need the Pro unless like me you just want to donate to the developers.

    Adwcleaner kept finding issues with Wise on 3 PCs so I uninstalled Wise.

    It removes only even trace log files, which get recreated afterwards.
    I'm using it for long time now, ever since W8. After a lot of file deletion and moves there's a lot of garbage left over and occasionally it removes 100s of MB. Same after new builds and Disk Cleanup.

    I saw your reply and stated my experience with it. Been using it for at least 10 years now and it has NEVER screwed my machine(s) up. Frankly I thought your reply was a little over the top. Just what does Ccleaner do that makes you think its a "Texas chainsaw massacre" in a noobs hands? I've found it was and is one of the , if not THE, safest cleaners out there.

    Uncleaner is not a good option. No possibility for me to select files to delete.Cleans everything or nothing (automatically delete Recycle bin and other files i want to keep).

    No, it doesn't empty recycle bin but even if it did, Recycle bin is not for storage but only as a safety against accidentally deleted files. It doesn't delete any non system or user files files just some leftovers other programs including Disk cleanup miss.

    I spent some time testing various programs and to be honst CCleaner only cleans the surface, its only really effective if you have CCenhancer installed, which I think is a bit silly. CCleaner also conflicts with VAC on steam so I can't play my games with CCleaner instaleld on my computer.

    I went with WiseCare instead, which basically does the same thing (registry cleaning/defragging and cleaning junk), but it seems to do a better job by getting rid of more junk files and it doesn't conflict with VAC so I went with WiseCare instead.
