I have been reading and hearing a lot about ccleaner, which is a cookie cleaner. I was going to download it and try it out, but wanted to hear other opinions about it before I use it. Does it work well? Does it harm your computer? I have been using the standard explorer cookie remover to remove cookies, so I have no idea how this works. Any opinions on this? Thanks!

I've been using this for more than a year now. It was still called "Crap Cleaner" then. I highly recommend that you get this. It also cleans up your Firefox browser and temporary files. What I love about it is that you never realize just how much space all these unnecessary files take up. Whenever I run this program, it always notifies me of the space that can still be "freed up". I always find out that temporary files, cookies etc take up no less than 50 MB! CCleaner is really a great program. Use it regularly.

When I ran it last night, just by cleaning the explorer selections, it remomoved 189MB of junk! I don't notice any difference on my pc yet though. Maybe when I run it again next time with everything checked off.

I had never heard of this program before this but I went and downloaded it to try and it's really cool. Very fast and cleans out a lot of clutter....I'd definitely recommend it.

I should have posted the link in my orginal post so that others could try it too. I didn't even think about that until after I posted it. I have downloaded it now and am going to try it. All of the reviews I seen on various sights said it did a really good job and was real quick. Thanks for trying it out and responding!

I completely recommend CCleaner. I hope you decide to use it. It doesn't harm your system at all, and it's one of the best-working programs i've ever used. It doesn't harm anything on your computer. CCleaner removes cookies so much more thoroughly. Just download and install the program. It's really quite easy to figure out once you have it installed.

Thank you! I am going to try it out. I clean my cookies out a lot because of completing offers, so this may come in handy. Thanks!

I have been using it since its first incarnation years ago as crap cleaner. I have a review and several other very good free security and file tools listed at http://bradstinyworld.com/?p=104

Thanks for the advice! I had never heard about this before until the other day. Seems it's more popular than I thought!
