The CCleaner settings get saved under the registry key [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Piriform\CCleaner]

With regedit.exe you could export that to a *.reg files. Then when you reload you could import the reg file and you should be back in business.

Save this file: C:\Program Files\CCleaner\ccleaner.ini The registry doesn't have the settings information in XP anyway.
