Before It Becomes a Problem: "CleanUp!"

My old computer ran Windows 98, and I had all the software you guys list on your "Start Here" download page that was relevant to my system, including "CleanUp!" Now that I've recently purchased an HP Pavilion, I went to the download page to get all my old tools and noticed that "CleanUp!" now comes with this warning: "NOTE: Do NOT run this program if you have XP Professional 64 bit edition. If you're unsure please do not run it!"

Is there anyway to know if my version of XP is safe to run on it? I loved CleanUp!, as I HATE having unused junk on my system and "CleanUp!" reached places that "Disk CleanUp" never could. But I sense there is risk of important file deletion that I would sincerely like to avoid. Thanks.

Hi Digital Jedi...

Right click on "My Computer". Under the "General" tab, your Operating System will be listed...along with other system information.

If the Operating System is not listed as a 64 bit system then you are running on 32 bit and it would be safe to use the CleanUp application.

Another indicator would be the processor...it would most likely be a dual core processor if you are running 64 bit.

Alright, thanks for the replies. They were indeed helpful. It appears I am on a 64 Dual Core processor. Yikes! I'll give ccleaner a try. Thank again. Much appreciated.
