Let's begin!

Note: This thread is for nottootechy (although the CCleaner instructions & ATF instructions can be used by anyone). If you need assistance, please begin your OWN thread, and someone will be happy to help you when someone is available.

No reason why we can't begin now with some stuff :) I've been itching to help someone with all this stuff! hehe :)

Just because of the length of my posts and the fact that things can get very confusing with long quotes would you mind please using the ADD REPLY button at the bottom of the page? :) (picture of where it is located in case you have missed it will be attached to the bottom of this post).

I see that you'd like to use ATF Cleaner & CCleaner.

To begin;

Download CCleaner from here to clean temp files from your computer.

  • Double click on the ccsetup file to start the installation of the program.
  • Select your language and click OK, then click Next.
  • Read the license agreement and click I Agree.
  • Click Next to use the default install location. Click Install then click Finish to complete installation.
  • Double click the CCleaner shortcut on the desktop to start the program.
  • On the "Windows" tab, under "Internet Explorer," uncheck "Cookies" if you do not want them deleted. (If deleted, you will likely need to reenter your passwords at all sites where a cookie is used to recognize you when you visit).
  • If you use either the Firefox or Mozilla browsers, the box to uncheck for "Cookies" is on the Applications tab, under Firefox/Mozilla.
  • Click on the "Options" icon at the left side of the window, then click on "Advanced."
    deselect "Only delete files in Windows Temp folders older than 24 hours."
  • Click on the "Cleaner" icon on the left side of the window, then click Run Cleaner to run the program.
  • Caution: It is not recommended that you use the "Registry" feature unless you are very familiar with the registry as it has been known to find legitimate items for removal, which can cause issues with other programs.
  • After CCleaner has completed its process, click Exit.

Additionally, BEFORE running CCleaner for the first time, check the Windows portion (first tab) to uncheck anything you do not wish to have cleared. For example, you may not wish to have your Recycle Bin cleared.

Then, click on the "Applications" tab and uncheck anything you may not want cleared there as well (for example, your AV. I accidentally cleared my AVG logs the first time I ran it, whups! Not all AV's will show up here, however, it does not hurt to check. I don't think that Avira does but make sure first if you don't' want scan etc... records cleared.

Basically anything else in that tab is probably okay to clear, but again, please check it to make sure there is no other program you don't want logs wiped from (in case you want to reference anything in the future, in that case you wouldn't want them wiped).


Please download ATF Cleaner by Atribune (just click the red link).

Please see this link here on how to use it:


Again, if you don't wish to have your Recycle Bin emptied, make sure to uncheck that before you clear everything :)

Typically I run CCleaner first and then run just the Windows portion of ATF afterwards. But whatever you wish to do is fine of course :)

Let me know when you've finished that and then we can move onto a few more things I have in mind.

Below is the ADD REPLY picture :)
