Hey xSixSigmaMBB,,,

I've also found that CCleaner doesn't clean out ALL temp files on the system

Yes, that's true, the Sub-folders and Files in

C:\Users\YOUR_USER_NAME\AppData\Local\Temp

are created and placed there by various Apps, and they can contain almost anything, Historical Log-Files, Statistics, etc., well you name it.

However, if you want those Directories and/or Files to be include in the Cleaner's Cleanup runs, you can go to Cleaners's-->Options-->Include and Browse to the Directories and/or Files, and add the Path to the CCleaner's Table that you also want to be cleaned.

Conversely, you can also Exclude Directories and/or Files that you don't want to be cleaned, like some Sub-Directories under the Temp Dirs. that some Apps use for saving various Statistical info. etc. And I know, that the Apps shouldn't use temp Folder for that purpose, but many Apps do.
