CCleaner is more of a browser cleaner, WDC cleans a bit more, including Windows Update files (Slimming), though you can easily add that to CCleaner:
Code:
del "%WINDIR%\Installer\$PatchCache$" /s /f /q
del "%WINDIR%\SoftwareDistribution\Download" /s /f /q
del "%WINDIR%\WinSxS\Backup" /s /f /q
CCleaner's advantage is in setting cookie exceptions, which WDC lacks (they do not really work properly).
You can test them yourself, install both, run scans and compare. Do not forget, that WDC has also Advanced Cleaner.

This is a good tip for CCleaner, thanks. This is no different from running Windows Disk Cleanup as Admin, right?

What does the advanced cleaner do exactly?

Windows Disk Cleanup does not remove backups and it has a grace period (10-30 days), before it removes some files.
What does the advanced cleaner do exactly?
Honestly, no idea. I run WDC after running a cleanup, so it finds only a few MBs at most, so I did not bother checking.

Had something similar with wisecare. Not changed any settings, but after cleanup, my Opera startpage(fvd speed dial) just got changed to default and all was deleted. dunno, like 1-2 years ago. Didnt use any cleaner now. windows is good in it itself and with a good uninstaller(like revo) u can do the rest better manualy.

Hands-down Wise Disk Cleaner is able to discover more junk files than vanilla CCleaner. Period. You will be using the Common Cleaner tab the most. Whereas Advanced Cleaner and Slimming System much less, or never.

Cons:
Translation in English language has a few errors.


Screenshots:
  • It's better to use this UI mode for clearer control. Scheduler can be disabled.

yes this too to me and was anoying. atm only using ccleaner no need extra super features for clean system, most of things wich need cleaned are temp files and windows can do that easy also.
