Hi, new here but a long time user of CCleaner and I apologise if this has been mentioned before I did a search but couldn’t see anything but what about CCleaner having the option to clear Windows event logs?
Hi Darren. I’m speaking just for myself here, but I would hate to see this implemented as a ccleaner default action. There is just so much info these logs can give you for troubleshooting and once they are gone.. But that’s just me. I think that DarrenShan has a great idea, but i can also see the point that hazelnut made. I sometimes do it manually. What if Ccleaner gave you the choice of cleaning out the event logs? It actually has been suggested before. The problem with blindly deleting those logs can be a big issue.
INI explanation. Event viewer log files are not cleaned by ccleaner on my machine. I don’t believe ccleaners windows logs files -system does clean them. The event logs files are capped to maximum of KB by default which isn’t really much if you think about it. As for CCleaner I doubt this idea could ever be implemented event logs files are protected from outside deletion or modification.
While on a similar subject does CCleaner remove debug logs of Piriform products and Windows crash dumps i. Where are they? I’ll try it. It isn’t really a cloud. Its a bunch of big, giant servers. Would never stoop so low Anyhow, CCleaner’s “windows logs files -system Unlocker shows them locked by After that, the event viewer still shows the same info as before they were deleted.
Cannot tell what would happen after a reboot. One probably shouldn’t do this I’ve no idea what would normally happen on restart, but all these reckless deletions will be gone after restart here.
Login every so often I clear my event viewer logs out after checking them out. I have done this for years now with no issues. The thing that worries me about something else doing it instead of me is that any issues in the logs I may have wanted to look at are gone, and can never be got back. However, since you never had a problem for years, I don’t really think you will have any problem in the next several years as well.
Even if you do, there are always ways to check things. For instance:. Windows boots erratically, or sometimes not at all. The symptoms are usually unmistakable, so I don’t foresee you having anything to worry about. Life is short! Why worry? You will always have what you need to handle the day, just relax! If you have problems, ask one of us, I would most certainly be glad to help you if you need it I use the event viewer to troubleshoot software errors as I am a beta tester for a couple of software companies.
I need the event viewer to see which event id errors occurred at a specific time and how it relates to the said software. Also things like the beta software affecting auto retrieval of certificates and Windows Time. This info is then relayed back to the software devs. Just in case it might help you! I believe you already use Sandboxie, but I was just wondering if you ever thought of using it for that particular folder?
You don’t seem to understand the concept of alpha and beta testing and the helpfulness of Windows Event Viewer. Even for folk not testing software for devs, they are so useful.
I now forget what I did or what was done to me, but I wondered what Windows thought about the incident so I looked in the event log. I hated pre-XP Windows that each morning would announce how many thousands of lost clusters it had found,. If the event logs had not been available I would not have known that my ship had sprung a leak and I was in danger of capsizing.
As I understand it the goal of CCleaner is to remove crap and thus freeing up disk space but it should be worth pointing out event logs are typically no bigger than KB, not MB or even GB. This way, advanced users could clean it if they wanted, while users who still use it could just leave it unchecked. Unfortunately some users are NOT advanced but and they see every unchecked box as a bit more free space they can get for free.

Andavari 2 Posted June 30, Nergal 0 Posted July 1, Posted July 1, Super Fast 0 Posted July 8, Posted July 8, I am personally glad it does clean those. Good thing it cleans them! Thanks, Nergal, for pointing that out. I was going to point that part out, but you beat me to it! I will have to check on my machine later then to see If a computer is going bad, it can generate them on the fly.
Richard S. I know for a fact Richard it deletes minidumps and DrWtsn logs. Evt – Application SecEvent. Evt – Security SysEvent. Evt – System and no cheating using an offline boot disc Richard S. I understand. And you were right, of course, CCleaner didn’t clean them, and should not. Posted July 9, What the heck are you talking about? This info is then relayed back to the software devs Got nothing to do with hardware. Super Fast 0 Posted July 10, Posted July 10, Help me do what??
What particular folder?? Bottom line is I don’t believe Event Viewer logs should be deleted by ccleaner. I hated pre-XP Windows that each morning would announce how many thousands of lost clusters it had found, but it gives me no confidence that so much disaster now just gets buried out of sight. Back on topic If the event logs had not been available I would not have known that my ship had sprung a leak and I was in danger of capsizing. Because the event logs were there and I saw the problem I was able to avert disaster.
