This program is wonderful! Use it and then see what Ccleaner finds afterwords...

This is my TFC 'clean-up' ( captured pic below)


TFC by Old Timer http://www.geekstogo...er-file187.html and save it to your desktop.

Save any unsaved work. TFC will close ALL open programs including your browser!
Double-click on TFC.exe to run it. If you are using Vista/Windows 7 right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator.
Click the Start button to begin the cleaning process and let it run uninterrupted to completion.
Important! If TFC prompts you to reboot, please do so immediately. If not prompted, manually reboot the machine anyway to ensure a complete clean.


TFC (Temp File Cleaner) will clear out all temp folders for all user accounts (temp, IE temp, java, FF, Opera, Chrome, Safari), including Administrator, All Users, LocalService, NetworkService, and any other accounts in the user folder. It also cleans out the %systemroot%\temp folder and checks for .tmp files in the %systemdrive% root folder, %systemroot%, and the system32 folder (both 32bit and 64bit on 64bit OSs). It shows the amount removed for each location found (in bytes) and the total removed (in MB). Before running, it will stop Explorer and all other running apps. When finished, if a reboot is required the user must reboot to finish clearing any in-use temp files.

TFC only cleans temp folders. TFC will not clean URL history, prefetch, or cookies. Depending on how often someone cleans their temp folders, their system hardware, and how many accounts are present, it can take anywhere from a few seconds to a minute or more. TFC will completely clear all temp files where other temp file cleaners may fail. TFC requires a reboot immediately after running. Be sure to save any unsaved work before running TFC.

I was only asking because I ran it on my main rig and it cleaned over 11xxMb of stuff and wanted a reboot. Without thinking I clicked on the O.K. and never looked at what was cleaned... :rolleyes: :geezer:

I thought PCMatic did this (cleaned temp files) during its scan. What is the point of adding this temp file cleaner to my system?

Sounds like a handy program, I'll have to check that out, thank you. I have been using "Empty Temp Folders 2.8.3:" a free shareware program from www.danish-sharewarre.dk/soft/emptemp/ It is highly configurable, will optionally clean history, cookies, and even allow you to isolate an exclusive list of cookies you want to keep. It can run at startup and terminate or stay resident, (your choice), and run easily on Win 7/64 with a simple click. I like that it allows you to use the default folder selection or you can define any folders you want it to look at.

Essentially none. TFC may be more thorough tho'...
