I'm pretty sure the post yu quoted actually states the answer to your question. Security Essentials, CCleaner, Malwarebytes. Run the last two once a week. Uncheck the box in CCleaner for History, Cookies, and Windows Log Files.
Well you said "CC Cleaner or it's equivalents" so I was looking for a clarification on what "its equivalents" you recommend or if CC Cleaner is the best option. But, I'll go with CCleaner and Malwarebytes. Thanks.
