Thanks for the link kendall . Well, its not bad to disagree, and we can disagree, and still be best of friends .

The articles are another thing, but I speak from personal experience. As I told, I have 350 MB free at the moment, and there were times when it went to just 200 MB being free... but still it did not make my computer slow. That's why I wrote, what I wrote.

Watch out for CCleaner. I ran it on my laptop and all my windows XP icons have been deleted and all my files are distorted. I can't see any option to reverse this action. I am having major problems with my pc since using CCleaner. I also tried system restore, but still cannot fix the windows program.

Yes, yes. CCleaner is one of those tools that you have to be careful with. It can work wonders in the hands of an experienced user, but can create nightmares if used indiscriminately.

IMO this sounds considerably more severe damage than would likely be caused by CCleaner on default settings.

When you say all your files are distorted, more specifically what problems are you experiencing?
