Sorry, I meant "what's the betting that PC Pitstop just delete my reply instead of moderating it?". I should hav phrased that one a bit more clearly.Why would we do that? The title change has been made.
Reading that article, it has an interesting quote from PC Pitstop:
So PC Pitstop are fighting, not only against malware, but also against computer safety?PC Pitstop said:PC Matic is developed and supported by PC Pitstop – a reputable company that has been around for more than 12 years and been on the forefront of the fight against malware and computer safety.
In defense of CCleaner, it analyses what it thinks are problems that need cleaning (and this usually includes all your cookie files) and it is then up to you whether to delete them or not, it doesn't delete anything until you click the Clean button. Full details of how to include/exclude files and folders are given on the Piriform website so if you don't want your cookies deleted then exclude the folder containing them (of course any malware might well be hiding in your cookie folder) or individual cookies.
