Run CCleaner in background across network?

By jfuller05 ·
Is it possible to run CCleaner daily in the background on user's workstations from the server? Without installing it on each workstation?
Would I use group policy? I would like for CCleaner to run in the background when the user logs in, so the user doesn't notice.


Windows server 2008
Windows XP-workstations

edit: I found on Google ways for CCleaner to start at each logon, but it didn't run in the background. That's a nice feature. I think it would be better if the user could logon as usual without the interference of CCleaner.

I've been able to run it minimized at logon, but not in the background.

However, I know the users would get aggravated at having to press OK when CCLeaner is done.

I would think the program could run "invisibly" like whenever you right-click the recycle bin and choose "run cleaner". The only thing they would see is the C logo down in the notification area for a little while.

You can also use the ccleaner.ini to tweak what is cleaned and what isn't. Take a look here. Some folks don't want thier stored password or form data wiped and you can change if those are cleaned using this file.
