  1. Note to JDPower . . . This may or may not be of interest to you, but for what it's worth, here's another backup program. ZIP Backup is not free, but it's reasonable -- about $30.00. http://www.zipbackup.com/partners/wow/?source=wow Actually, this is a great little backup app. I used some time ago, migrated to a new computer -- and frankly, just forgot about it. However, I think I'll go back to it. It's extremely easy to use, fast, totally customizable -- and as best I can tell, very reliable.
  2. Thanks for the link. I need to regularly backup the same selected files and folders -- but quite a few or them? How do you use 7-Zip for this purpose -- or is there a simpler and more practical solution?
  3. JDPower . . . I'm in the same boat as you were and desperately looking for an app similar to what you described. Just wondering if you're still using Abakt and how it's working for you?

    Free Cyberhawk Pro

    Am I to conclude from all the discussion that this app is of little -- or questionable value?

    AdAware 2007

    Most interesting comments today on the new Ad-Aware 2007 Free. In light of all this dialogue, how does this new release compare with AVG's Anti-Spyware Free? Is one clearly superior over the other?

    New JkDefrag

    I have not used this program before, but have heard of it. Will the GUI version be a separate version, or is the GUI just an add-on to 3.9?
  7. This is probably a strange question, but are there any options in CCleaner, that by selecting them, would change the appearance of files in Windows XP folders from either an "icon" or "details" format to a "tile" format? I seem to have experienced this after running CCleaner, but it may have had nothing to do with this CCleaner at all.
  8. Where do you find the old Java runtimes and how do you delete them?

    Clear java cache?

    Still somewhat of a "newbie," but I've also noticed quite a buildup in my Sun Java cache (18-20MB). Is this a safe clean, or will it cause residual problems?.
  10. I was just wondering if CCleaner had a provision to "save" a given analysis configuration for future use. I regularly "Analyze" many of the items -- but not all of them. It appears that CCleaner remembers the items that were used (checked) the last time it was run. However, from time to time, I need to make changes in my selection. I thought if there were a way to save these different configurations, it would just save some time in "checking" or "unchecking" the various boxes -- and remembering which boxes I needed to include or exclude.

  11. I just installed winapp2. My app section now displays a couple of apps I didn't even know I had -- maybe they're just the "remnants" of some old stuff. If I don't want these to show up, do I just edit/delete them from the winapp2.ini file -- or is there some other way to do this? Also, what happens when new apps are added to the winapp2 file and made available? Do you just download the updated file and start the process all over again -- or do you somehow just merge the newly added apps -- or . . . ????
  12. Thanks so much for all the help.
  13. This is truly a great idea. However, as mentioned earlier, I am a newbie and as yet have not downloaded or installed winapp2.ini -- nor am I totally sure just how winapp2 works. So, here are a couple of questions . . . when you first download the winapp2 file, how do you differentiate which apps are in the original CCleaner winapp.ini file and which are in the winapp2 file? Do they get merged together -- or do they remain in two different files? Also, when you insert the asterisk, do you asterisk all of the apps in the winapp2 file -- or just the ones that relate to the apps you have/use? Tom
  14. So, is it reasonably safe to install the supplemental winapp2.ini downloads -- or is this rather risky?
  15. I have basically the same question. I, too, am a fairly new user and noticed that in the "Cleaner" secion of CCleaner under the "Application" tab there is another section titled "Applications." Only two apps show up here -- Adobe Reader and Nero Burning. Should there be more??? Tom
  16. Thanks for the link. Tom
  17. When CCleaner provides the option to "Back Up The Registry," does it back up the entire Registry, or just those areas about to be cleaned or fixed? Tom
  18. What do you suggest as a good defragmenter??
  19. That for the info and for the reassuring comments. By the way, I haven't been able to find anything in CCleaner to defrag my drive. Does it include one??
  20. I am a brand new CCleaner user. This app looks so interesting that I'd like to do some MAJOR cleaning. However, I know that this could probably get me into some big touble real fast. CCleaner seems to have found lots of stuff on my computer that could be removed, However, I'm not a "techie." So, when I look at all the stuff it finds, how do I know what's safe to clean (delete) -- and what's not?
