I think you're talking about TFC. You can download it at this link.

TFC only cleans temp folders. TFC will not clean URL history, prefetch, or cookies.

Is this what you are looking for? ATF Cleaner.

I use both programs on a regular basis.

Queen-Evie, will ATF work with all Windows OS? I use CCleaner (not the registry part) for my WinXP Pro and it does everything the OP mentioned. Should I change?

WinXP Pro sp3 \ Firefox, Panda, MBAM, SAS, SpywareBlaster

In my opinion you should not use any 3rd party app to delete ANY files. Just go into the temp folder and delete what you want.

I use it in on XP and Win7 systems. It's your call what program to use.

You are entitled to your opinion. Care to elaborate on WHY that is your opinion?

I have used ATF Cleaner and TFC for a long time and neither has caused any problems.

I use CCleaner to automatically do this stuff. AFAIK, it's the only product that can be set up to do it automatically. Obviously it's the only thing I use CCleaner for.
