    I've been using "all in one toolbox" but I don't like the new ui and it glitches when I close it. I've tried all the other cleaners but none seem to clean as well as All in one. Does anyone have any suggestions. I don't want or need a task killer just a cleaner.

    Agreed. I use it on my tablets and phones and I especially like that it lets me choose what to delete ans what to keep.

    Never but never use Clean Master, they are stealing data and are having two usefull functions and the rest is crap.

    So don't use the crap part. I know I don't. It did start out fairly simple and they have added and added "stuff" to it and try to entice you to go that extra step. I don't and won't.

    Yup. It is getting a bit annoying. The latest one, today, was trying to get me to download something to make my YouTube surfing more secure.

    I noticed that. They have figured out how to monitize it, big time.

    I'm giving CCleaner a try. It looks pretty good and it always did a good job on my computer.

    Thanks for the tip. It's a little slower than CM during the analyzing but I really appreciate the ability to decide way to clean and the lack of bloat attempts .
    I've been using it on my desktop for years also.

    That's what I like about it. The ability to customize it and tell it what to scan. And it's much smaller than both CM and All in one and no bloat on top of that.

    I use Clean Master just for the pop up feature that let's me know when an uninstalled app leaves remnants behind. It's surprising how many do, even when I clear their cache and data before uninstalling.

    Just a heads up if you try cc cleaner. When you delete downloads it also deletes any downloaded photos you might have in your gallery. Not cool

    I have it set to clean my downloaded files and my thumb cache and it hasn't touched my photos. Even the one in my "downloaded" gallery.

    Might be an LG thing then because they're gone on my phone now.

    It's cleaning exactly what I want and nothing more. I'm happy with it.

    That could be. Motorola probably assigns downloaded pics to a different location than LG. My downloaded pics are in a sub-gallery called "downloads". I have other downloaded files, in a different location, for a Bible app (commentaries, dictionaries, and such) and they're fine too. CC didn't touch them either.

    Thanks. It was no biggie because I've got them backed up but I didn't like the "surprise". Mine were in a sub gallery with the same name also. On my Samsung stuff I usually have 2 copies,1 in the sub gallery and 1 in a separate download folder that had downloads of everything I downloaded. I empty that one and wherever I saved my stuff to, that is still there.

    I also completely agree that Clean master is best cleaner
