Besides the portability of, well, portable apps, there is also privacy which I think everybody likes. There are utilities for antivirus etc., but I have yet to find one that cleans up after you work on a computer. Smiling

The ram footprint it has is extremely small and it's installation folder size is only up to 2MB. If it was ported to flash drives, I think it would make a great app.

CCleaner is definitely an excellent program.

Here is how I run it..

I have the following bat file in the ccleaner dir

@Echo Off
TITLE CCleaner startup
Echo Registering ActiveX components
cd\Apps\ccleaner
start /WAIT regsvr32.exe /s cchelper.ocx
start /WAIT regsvr32.exe /s CCListView.ocx
start /WAIT regsvr32.exe /s CCSubTimer.dll
start /WAIT regsvr32.exe /s CCTab.ocx
start /WAIT regsvr32.exe /s CCTreeView.ocx
Echo Starting application
start /WAIT ccleaner.exe

Echo Unregistering ActiveX components
start /WAIT regsvr32.exe /u /s cchelper.ocx
start /WAIT regsvr32.exe /u /s CCListView.ocx
start /WAIT regsvr32.exe /u /s CCSubTimer.dll
start /WAIT regsvr32.exe /u /s CCTab.ocx
start /WAIT regsvr32.exe /u /s CCTreeView.ocx

Exit

Thanks a lot

Thanks a lot for the batch file! It seems to work...

Odd.

It gives me a "Run time error '0' ".. Why is that? (I'm pretty clueless when it comes to tweaking software.)

I can make a CCleaner mini-app for ya if you E-Mail me

The Runtime error means that

The Runtime error means that not all your DLL's are registered. You may be missing a DLL somewhere. Also, FYI, the batch process above only works on 2k/xp, not in ME.

Hi, I am not very clear with what I might be doing wrong, cause I am getting this response:

Could you give me a suggestion?

OK I've been trying to answer my own question, and this is what I've got so far. With the latest release of CCleaner (v1.30.310)this code works but not with limited user privledges:

@Echo Off
Echo Registering Components

start /WAIT regsvr32.exe /s lang-1033.dll
start /WAIT regsvr32.exe /s cchelper.ocx

Exit

With user privledges the program does not start, perhaps because the dll's fail to get registered. Also when I include the path line in the bat file that the original poster included, I get a Run-time error '0'. I'd really like to get this working no matter how I am logged in. Any suggestions?

this has already been brought up before,
and there is a better one at portablefreeware.com
also, I'm working on an alternative called cleanup portable

But there’s no sense crying over every mistake,
You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.
