CCleaner by Piriform can be used to clean out cookies and temporary files. 

It is a good utility to use regularly.

 

Download and scan each user profile with CCleaner :

http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/builds

** Select to download the SLIM version.

 

** Because CCleaner removes everything in temp folders, if you have anything saved in a temp folder, back it up or move it to a permanent folder prior to running CCleaner.

 

** CCleaner will be cleaning cookies as well. Make a note of any passwords, etc. that you want to save. If you do not want to delete cookies, simply uncheck that option.

 

1. Before first use, select Options > Advanced and UNCHECK "Only delete files in Windows Temp folder older than 48 hours"

 

2. Select the items you wish to clean up.

In the Windows Tab:

    • Clean all entries in the "Internet Explorer" section.
    • Clean all the entries in the "Windows Explorer" section
    • Clean all entries in the "System" section.
    • Clean all entries in the "Advanced" section.
    • Clean any others that you choose.

In the Applications Tab

  • Clean all in the Firefox/Mozilla section if you use it.
  • Clean all in the Opera and Chrome sections if you use them.
  • Clean Java in the Internet Section.
  • Clean any others that you choose.
  • * Do not use the Registry Cleaner component of CCleaner.

3. Click the "Analyze" button. When the list of files comes up for you to review, if you choose to remove them, click the "Run Cleaner" button.

 

4. A pop up box will appear advising this process will permanently delete files from your system.

 

5. Click "OK" and it will scan and clean your system.

 

6. Click "Exit" when done. REBOOT.
