  1. @Stick486 asked that I take some screen shots and post them here. I don't know if this is the right forum (please move if not) but here goes. I have run CCleaner since it first came out in 2004. I now run CCleaner Pro on my desktop, for all the rest of the computers I use the freeware version. I have taken a couple of screen shots of CCleaner Pro at work just to show the naysayers how effective CCleaner can be and to prove how invasive Microsoft is behind the scenes. You can see my computer specs at the top of the screen shots for those interested. When I built this computer I refused to reload W-10 as an operating system and instead installed 8.1; better but not perfect. I'll set the scene. Last night, as always before bedtime, I ran CCleaner. I closed all programs, ran the software, and I cleaned ALL of the un-necessary files from the hard drive. I then did a seven pass wipe of the unused portion of my 1 TB hard drive to clean out any stray information bytes. This morning I opened and read my email (MS Outlook Mail Client), read a news website, looked at Router Forum, and made some posts in TPW. I left my mail client and Firefox open and minimized. Understand, Firefox does NO tracking, I can't say the same for Outlook. Several hours later I ran CCleaner. Notice that all of the garbage file taking up space and affecting the computers performance are MS files. I DO NOT run or use IE, yet there the IE files are, nor do I use any search engines except DuckDuckGo. I NEVER use an IE, Yahoo or Google search. The system files are a given, and FF, again, does not track or store usage data. However, the bulk of the data is keylogging, and usage data, which is sent back to MS for whatever purposes they won't admit or even acknowledge. Look at the two screen shots: before and after cleaning. This is the screen shot AFTER the cleaner was run. I think that the screen shot speaks for itself! 266 Tracking Files (all of them going directly back to MS). Hope this information opens some eyes and helps.
