Hi Guys 

 

I am running 2 laptops with Windows10. I use CCleaner on one but not on the other. I am happy with CCleaner but on another forum it suggested that it was unnecessary as Windows 10 does its own housekeeping. In fact the suggestion was that CCleaner would interfere with Windows10 operation ??

 

Any thoughts

I believe that CCleaner is unnecessary in the Windows 10 world, but it does have some handy tools that I occasionally use. On the other hand, it does no real harm as long as do not use the registry cleaner, that can harm your Windows system.

I still find CCleaner (and I never use or have used the Registry Cleaner) very useful in the Windows 10 world for primarily the same thing I did in earlier versions of Windows:  cleaning up browser cache, cookies, etc., in one fell swoop.  It's a lot faster than using the built-in "clear history" features of the browsers themselves and gives you much finer control over what you actually wish to delete.
