Hi,

 

What is the best cleaner to use after an Internet session?

 

I went to download TFC but it states:

 

Please note TFC is not suitable for use on Windows 8.1 or 10

Hello Rickles,

 

CCleaner (free) just be sure to stay well away from anything to do with the registry cleaning tool.

You are welcome Rickles  :)

FWIW: Totally separate from the temp file cleaner etc and would require an end user to intentionally use it.

Awesome to read, I personally use crap cleaner (i don't use the registry cleaner though) and I have not heard of BleachBit, so I am going to have a look into it.
