It's registry based, unfortunately. All of the OCX are Visual Basic files, thus making CCleaner dependant on them. CCleaner could be a lot better as a Delphi application and strictly using *.ini settings; this could maximize portability. With the addition of the toolbar, CCleaner is going downhill.

 

Here's the key to export for the settings.

 

 

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\VB and VBA Program Settings\CCleaner

Yes, as its coded in Visual Basic, its dependent on vbruntimes and OCX files. It would be much better off coded in C/C++.

 

And I think a .ini file would be very great to store things such as cookies to keep.

 

And yeh with Yahoo! toolbar it is going downhills. =/

I agree.

Rewriting CCleaner to be a single executable file and a config file would be awesome, and make it smaller and more portable.

 

But now that CCleaner is becoming bigger and more bulky, I guess the dream of a more portable cleaning app isn't doing so hot...
