I used CCleaner years ago and found that it removed my personal password info, so I stopped using it (I'm clearly a novice.)

I know that registry cleaners are taboo so would like to understand the best way to use CC w/o deleting the cookies I need.

The only thing I use CCleaner for is to automatically clean cookies, junk files and recycle bin each time I boot up. You can check out the tutorial on their website to learn how to do this.

hi,,, the one to uncheck to save your passwords is "auto complete form history" then click on applications tab and uncheck "saved form information" ,, hope this helps,,, by the way , if you use firefox you can use a program called Mozbackup which will backup the browsers settings and also its saved passwords (a god send)
good luck.

I installed the newest version of cc, and "unchecked the auto complete form history" but all of my auto-complete info was missing after running the cleaner :thumbsup:
