I ran it in demo mode and 'apparently' it could clean up 1.8gb of space but then when I actually ran the scan for real, it only was able to delete 500mb of space. Whats going on with it? Is it trying to impress me by lying about how much space its making!?

Yep, that's how they make money. Tell you what they can do, but don't do it all until you pay. But, there are plenty of free cleaners (that works just as good or even better) that you could use instead of that program. Here's one of them, as well as how to set it up:

Download CCleaner from http://www.snapfiles...t/ccleaner.html
  • Install it. Then start the program.
  • In the area designated as "Cleaner Settings", Make sure the Windows tab is the selected tab.
  • Under the category of "Internet Explorer", UNcheck all boxes except for the first two boxes (Temporary Internet Files and Cookies).
  • UNcheck the box next to the category called "Windows Explorer."
  • Under the category of "System", UNcheck Empty Recycle Bin.
  • At the top, click on the tab that says Applications.
  • UNcheck EVERYTHING! If there is a category called "Firefox", then leave the Cookies option checked.
  • Now click on Analyze. When it is done analyzing (it could take several minutes since this is your first time using ccleaner), you will be able to see what is deleted. When you are satisfied, click on Run Cleaner You can simply click on Run Cleaner without clicking on Analyze first, if you just want to go straight to the cleaning, without previewing what it will delete.
Let me know if you need anything else. :whistling:
