hey all,

just a quick question whilst I await a HJT diagnoses I read in the CC Cleaner tutorial and was not aware that if you have more than 1 user profile on a single machine you have to run CC CLeaner on each user account????? does this also apply to any/all Anti virus, malware, and spyware removers as well?? thanks

Most, if not all, malware/anti-virus scanners will scan all user profiles. CCleaner is annoying because, yes, it has to be run on every account.

Anytime :thumbsup: And personally, I think CCleaner needs to add an option to clean all profiles, but that would present a problem if some users want to keep some temp files such as cookies or something.

This is also the same if you use the Disc Cleanup feature in Windows. You must delete the Temp Internet files, History etc individually for each user.
