I use both of these utilities religiously after every internet session on my laptop (Windows 7.32-bit). Running CleanUp, I typically flush 50Mb to 100Mb. Following up with Ccleaner, anywhere from 7-13 additional Mb. Where do I start to find the reason for these high numbers?

There is nothing unusual as far as the amount of temporary files, logs, etc. that is being removed. If you want to see a more detail account

CCleaner will tell you exactly what was found and removed after the scan is complete. Just click or double click on each item such as a browser

to see a more detailed list.

 

I know nothing about how Cleanup lists the items it removes. Just use CCleaner as it likely removes the same thing as Cleanup.

Every internet session ? once a week would be sufficient , or are you paranoid about something.

High Numbers ? can be associated to how you browse the web , what you view , whats held in cache , etc etc.

I usually have anywhere between 500mb to a gig each week and use CCleaner.

Your browser saves temporary files of HTML, images, JavaScript, style sheets, video files, cookies, etc as you surf the Internet. This data is stored for every web site you visit so that the next time you visit the same site, the browser takes the data from the temporary Internet files....this is called caching. Doing this allows the web page to quickly display in the browser instead of having to wait for a response from the Web site's server. It does not take long for all these files to add up even during a short browsing session.
