    I remember there being at least 6 options:

    Add "start cleaner" to recycle bin
    Add "Run Cleaner" to recycle bin
    Auto check for updates
    Add a start menu icon
    Add a desktop shortcut
    Add free toolbar

    Now, all i see is this:

    Actually MrDarn, it depends on which version of Ccleaner you download. Awhile back I saw where Evilfantasy had began to use Ccleaner Slim (no toolbar) and he had posted the link in his Community Discussion Forum thread titled Flash Cookie cleaners under the category of Flash cookie cleaners/viewers. I refuse to give out any other link for Ccleaner to prevent the OP from becoming a victim to yet another unnecessary toolbar.

    And, if I may say, (not to change the subject) some of the links out there to programs, tools and the like are so full of advertisements that people end up getting confused by the Ads presented and end up clicking on downloads for Reg cleaners, PC Optimizers, Free scans, etc. I try my best to stay away from providing such links. I still get confused myself.
    If you think you might be infected with malware or have recently cleansed your computer of malware without the help of an expert, please read and follow the instructions in How to Start Removing Viruses and Spyware from your Computer. This can alleviate time consumed in trouble shooting your current computer problems.

    I hear what your saying Donna, it does get confusing when your new to this, which is why i keep advising you to look back on yourself a year ago, and write your advice in a way you would understand then.

    Unfortunately these programs need money to keep developing, and that is the only way to keep this program and others free.

    The pertinent question here is this: Is it the website? or the helpers directions?

    EG: as opposed to something like this:

    Hi there (users name).

    I would recommend a program such as CCleaner in this case.

    If you do not currently have this program, you can download it for free by following the instructions below. These instructions are based on the Firefox Browser and Windows XP, please let me know if you have any problems with it.

    Firstly, go to Piriform - Download CCleaner, Defraggler, Recuva, Speccy - Millions of users worldwide!

    You will be presented with a page like this one:

    Click where the red arrow points.
    You will be presented with a page with this in the middle:

    Click where the arrow suggests
    On the following page, in the top right, you will find this link.

    Please click the arrowed link.
    In firefox, you will then be asked to save the file:

    In Internet Explorer, you may need to click the yellow bar along the top of your browser, and select 'download file'
    Choose a download location, the default is fine.

    Once downloaded, find the file and double click it. Accept any warnings you may receive.
    At the prompt, click 'OK'

    Then click 'Next'

    Read the licence agreement, then click 'I Agree'

    Leave the default installation location unless you prefer to install elsewhere, then click Next

    The next screen is totally dependant on your preferences.

    Here's what each option will do:

    1. Will add a desktop shortcut on your desktop.
    2. Will add an entry to your Start menu, under 'All Programs'
    3. Will add a "Run CCleaner" entry to the right-click options of the recycle bin
    4. Will add an "Open CCleaner" entry to the right-click options of the recycle bin (Recommended)
    5. Will check for updates every time CCleaner is used.(Recommended)



    If you only select the two recommended options, you will have the least amount of "extras" that are un-needed. to access the program in the future, right-click the "Recycle Bin" on your desktop, and you will get an option to open the cleaner.
    Always remember you're unique.
