But the same mentality that says "I don't have time to empty my files" also says "Why am I getting this annoying message about dump files? I think I'll get rid of those."
Perhaps those people should also read the instructions or get advice. CCleaner's Help is quite specific regarding Memory Dumps and their usefulness to technical people. I don't delete dumps myself. If you have a BSOD, I would have thought it most unlikely that CCleaner had been run since or around the time the BSOD occurred. Another point is that you mostly get complaints in forums. They form a miniscule portion of the operating experience of most people who don't have issues and therefore a lopsided view. Tough luck for the few.
I've no idea where messages about dump files would come from. The "Analyze" list? I run CCleaner in Auto and all I see is the chomping icon in the system tray which does its thing in the background and disappears.
My comments may seem irrelevant to the original post, but I see the intent as being flawed. CCleaner v Batch Cleaning. CCleaner is a compendium of batch files. Whichever ones you select, it will run those, and those only. Pajajn is smart enough to come up with a batch file for his purposes. I'm sure he could figure out in CCleaner that to duplicate his batch file you only check Temporary Files, Old Prefetch Data, Recent Documents, Temporary Internet Files, and nothing else. In Settings/Advanced select time span for Windows Temp files delete.
