  1. If you want to see it run and then terminate, have a process viewer open when you hit the hot-key.. (the best free one has been at sysinternals.com for the last 7-years now - and it's constantly updated to perfection - like CCleaner ) ---- Side note: Process Explorer (viewer above) can be set to substitute for the crappy windows task-manager too. It can launch files (eg services.msc, cmd, etc..). I've found that in severe cases, both explorer and iexplorer must be halted to catch and delete malware, bho's, and other recursive virus activity). It's the only process manager that M$ teaches you to use on their own site.. (Authors Solomon and Russinovich write a lot of Windows Internals books) Basically, it substitutes as your system shell, when explorer is out-to-lunch - Cheers!
  2. AdvancedSearchbar.com has a good toolbar with RSS news feeds no spyware. I would like to know if lots of folks are using this IE bar. (And of course, if CrapCleaner can clean-out the typed search list) I dont know if this has been requested as an item to clean, but I've used several "safe" toolbars and this one is good. However, I also use the Googlebar and Advanced Search Bar seems to vacuum-up even the entries I send out to Google... Why is that? Thanks
  3. Maybe I should trade the USB-Swiss-Army knife for a can opener...
  4. Hi there again, In sending up that Jpeg, I had another glance at the screeny! Sometime back, I elected to install XP to a new partition and it was assigned H: When the Volume problem started, I pasted the fix into Regedit just as I found it on a web forum (it assumed C: was the sysdrive) and the Volume control has not disappeared since. Ok, now I know why CCleaner is flagging this... Sorry everyone! But maybe someone else now has the solution to the Volume control issue...
  5. Sorry, I fail to see why one would call it "not required" - I would venture a guess that most users consider a volume control important. Here's a screeny file with this add-on question: If systray.exe is in fact in the system32 folder, why is CCleaner flagging this as a missing file? As can be seen in the screeny, it is there... If an executive decision was made to delete it, why? Further, if it is a constant target for malware, etc.., why not check its integrity during the install, and if it changes later, give it the axe.
  6. Hi, I have a motherboard with integrated C-Media sound (I'm not sure how many other sound cards or chip-sets are in this same boat...) and the problem I've had seems common: "the disappearing Volume Control" Before I found the fix, I had to go into Control Panel (Sounds and Audio) and uncheck "Place volume in Task bar" > apply and then re-check and apply, to make it appear again. So I Googled, and the result (and cure) was : [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run] "SysTray"="\"c:\\windows\\system32\\systray.exe\"" Is it possible for your software to just leave this one alone? (or does that invite problems?.. ) see: Google Results and Cure P.S. Your software is one of most recommended and trusted vigilante's of the Internet. By stopping hidden problems before they even happen, most will never know how or when to thank you...
  7. Hi posted in bugs a few minutes back on "not emptying trash and temps". After reading about CC shutdowns I now wish I'd posted here first (I hate writing). I did notice recently CC would close it's window without a visible error, even though close after clean was not selected... so I just went in and unchecked the Index.dat and Autcomplete and hit run. Presto! It didn't close on me and my trash was emptied. I hope this helps..
