    • BleachBit is open source and does a thorough job of deleting various files that could reveal what you've been up to, from cookies to temporary files and other junk. It can't replace CCleaner on Mac, but on Windows and Linux it is arguably better and more trustworthy.

about CCleaner Jan 2016

Don't get me wrong, the software itself is kind of okay. But I find it highly ironical that the installer installs Big Brother Google Chrome (and sets it as default browser) by default... Plus it must leave tracks somewhere, because when you uninstall CCleaner and then try to reinstall it again, it doesn't ask again to install Chrome... Pretty dirty for a "cleaning" software...

Bad tool; Does not support clean on shutdown; No Cookie Manager

Negative Comment by pstein
about CCleaner May 2013

This tool is far away from beeing a recommendation.

Just a few important things I miss:

1.) It is not possible to autoclean when I click on START-->Shutdown (only /Shutdown flag which is not sufficient)

2.) Poor Cookie Manager (it is not shown when a cookie was added and last modified; No sort on dates)

3.) Only a few index.dat files were found and wiped

4.) No slackspace is wipeable (only full free sectors)

5.) No log output into file (on demand)

6.) No auto-jump to CookieManager on start is possible

There is a long way to go.....
