How To Use: CCleaner /AUTO /SHUTDOWN
CCleaner v2.10.618, or newer.
Create a new shortcut with this in it (or the path where you have CCleaner installed):
"C:\Program Files\CCleaner\CCleaner.exe" /AUTO /SHUTDOWN
The x64/64-bit version could look like this:
"C:\Program Files\CCleaner\CCleaner64.exe" /AUTO /SHUTDOWN
What It Does:
1. Allows CCleaner to automatically clean your already user pre-selected items in the Cleaner section.
2. Automatically shutdown your PC.
There's no countdown timer, and it will shut down your PC immediately after CCleaner finishes.
Q: Does this also run the registry cleaner?
A: No it doesn't. There's no parameter to allow for automatic registry cleaning.
