    CCleaner doesn't remove Winamp files 5th Jan 18 at 9:47 AM
    Does anyone else have this problem? Yes I have the Winamp box ticked.

    I use the latest version of CCleaner and Winamp 5.666. Perhaps I need to update to latest version of latter, but I prefer the older version.

    If it isn't possible, is there a bespoke way of cleaning files on CCleaner?

    What exactly are you trying to achieve ?
    What winamp files are you trying to remove ?


    Ccleaner can't do anything that you cant do yourself

    Same behaviour with v5.35.6210?

    Un-install latest and install the one above, taking care to not install any unnecessary software.

    I've updated CCleaner multiple times they all fail the clear the winamp playlist. I recall in the early days it used to.
