Setup CCleaner To Automatically Clean Your Windows 7 At Shutdown

CCleaner is a powerful and comprehensive piece of software that does some good sweeping for your computer. It wipes out all junk files, cookies, browsing history, and all garbage dumped by Windows and third party applications. It also fixes registry issues by removing unused file extensions, fonts, application path, obsolete entries, missing shared DLLs, etc.

It is a good practice to sweep all garbage from your computer at shutdown. Here is how you can setup CCleaner to sweep your Windows 7 at shutdown automatically (assuming that you have installed CCleaner).

Right-click anywhere on your desktop and choose New – Shortcut. In the location field, type the following command and click next.
"%programfiles%\CCleaner\CCleaner.exe" /auto /shutdown
Rename the shortcut something like Run CCleaner or anything you like and click Finish.

This would create a shortcut for CCleaner on your desktop, double-clicking on it would run CCleaner in the automatic mode and then shutdown the Windows.
