  1. The process that gets higher CPU priority will indirectly get higher disk priority too -- the lower-priority applications will be running slower, so they won't be making as frequent I/O requests.
  2. Is there any place on the site where I can see updates on the newest version available, and some release notes on new features?
  3. Awesome, that is great news. Thanks!
  4. I'm very interested in this new CCleaner network version, but I have a question. I see the only cleaning functions it includes so far are cache/temp file and registry cleaning. Is there any chance the functions under the CCleaner Tools menu will be added soon, like startup item enable/disable, and system restore point cleaning? I'd also be interested to know if there will be support for winapp2.ini, to add applications to the cleaing list?
  5. My understanding is that would depend on the total available bandwidth of the controller, which is usually much more than the bandwidth that one drive on one SATA port can utilize (at least when we're talking about regular mechanical drives, perhaps not all SSD drives). Even a single 3G/6G SATA connection isn't fully utilized with platter drives, except in burst operations involving the drives' internal cache. For proof, think of RAID striping, and how it produces speed benefits on any old home PC by dividing the workload of a file operation between two or more drives. RAID-0 writes to tw
  6. Not sure if this was suggested yet, but it would be super-cool if we could defrag multiple drives at once. As long as they're separate physical drives, especially in a multi-core computer, it seems feasible, no?
  7. Just want to voice my support for the suggestion to include network adapter info. Other I/O info would also be good, such as what types of adapters are installed, ports available, etc. This is kind of a gaping hole in a program that's otherwise looking pretty sweet. Just FYI, the competitor to beat, in my mind, is PC Wizard. I don't doubt it'll happen soon, but just saying
  8. I agree there should be a "messengers" group/tab etc. For now I made my own addition to Winapp2.ini for AIM 6, if anyone is interested. ;AIM 6 starts[iM Logs]Section=AIM 6DetectFile=%ProgramFiles%\AIM6\aim6.exeDefault=TrueFileKey1=%userprofile%\My Documents\AIMLogger|*.*|RECURSE[screen Name Data]Section=AIM 6DetectFile=%ProgramFiles%\AIM6\aim6.exeDefault=TrueFileKey1=%LocalAppData%\AOL OCP\AIM|*.*|RECURSERegKey1=HKCU\Software\America Online\AIM6\UsersRegKey2=HKCU\Software\America Online\AIM6|UserListRegKey3=HKCU\Software\America Online\AIM6|CurrentUserRegKey4=HKCU\Software\America O
  9. Good point, thanks. I updated the code in my original post.
  10. Sounds great. I simplified my original posting of the code, to show just the code as revised by you and Metalj (and crediting you both), since it's so much better than my original code anyway, and this way people won't need to read through the whole thread.
  11. I did submit it a couple days ago, but it was my original code without your/metalj's changes. I guess I'll submit it again now.
  12. Awesome metalj, I didn't know you could enter a custom section name. They should put that in the docs, unless its there and I missed it. Now Iron comes up basically like other browsers would.
  13. Good idea. I've added that to the post above.
  14. Code updated - I've added a line to the code in my post above: "FileKey8=%LocalAppData%\Chromium\User Data\Default|Web Data" This will clear Iron's saved suggestions for form input. Enjoy
  15. This post contains everything you need to add Iron support to CCleaner. There's no need to read through the entire thread (unless you feel like it). The code in this post has been edited to include all discussed changes and additions found later in the thread. To add Iron support to CCleaner, copy the code below and paste it onto the end of Winapp2.ini. Save the file and start (or restart) CCleaner. Then look for "SRWare Iron" in the "Applications" tab, at the end of the application list. (Winapp2.ini is a file you can download from this forum that supports the cleaning of
  16. It's easy to tell which files were in the recycle bin, since those files have altered names -- uniform names beginning with "DC". Also, since I used Recuva in my test, which lists the paths of the deleted files, I could easily see which resided in c:\Recycler. Recuva also shows how much each file has been overwritten, and as I said, most of the supposedly "wiped" files showed as completely undamaged and fully recoverable. It wasn't just the file names that were available.
  17. It would be nice if someone did notice this thread and addressed the problem without having to repost to the bug section, but that may not happen. A good eraser program is Eraser by Tolvanen, available at http://www.heidi.ie/node/6. You can erase individual files, folders, or wipe all unused space on a drive (shredding all files deleted previously from other programs). I've seen other threads complaining of recoverable files following CCleaner's secure deletion. I hope the secure deletion feature isn't just some sort of placebo. If there's no answer here for a while I'll post to the bu
  18. I think the original poster was referring to cleaning with the secure deletion option enabled (hence his use of the word "wiper"). This is contrary to performing a simple "delete", as in removing pointers and leaving the data until it's overwritten later, as you describe. The secure deletion option is supposed to actually overwrite the files for you when it performs the cleaning, so that recovery is made impossible (or nearly so). I actually came here to report the same problem: I performed a cleaning with the secure deletion option enabled, on "Simple Overwrite" and Recycle Bin incl
  19. I second the motion to add Google Chrome to the main app list. Though I'm sure this is already planned.
  20. 1. Can we be allowed to resize columns and use the scroll wheel in the file list during a defrag? I can't think of any good reason not to. 2. It would be nice to be able to see which file is currently being defragmented when in the file list tab, not just the drive tab. 3. I also agree as others have suggested, that multi-threading would be great. *Edit: On second thought, defragging probably wouldn't benefit from multi-threading. Even if your computer has more than one CPU core, defragging is much more hard drive intensive than CPU intensive, so performance would suffer from multip
  21. I dunno, with the secure deletion option, it seems to me you could do just as much damage with custom files and folders. Of course, users don't generally end up causing such damage, since I don't think the average user even looks at the custom option. I will look at that add-on you mentioned, but I really think custom registry locations are a good idea and wouldn't cause anyone any damage. Advanced users are the only ones who would even think to use it.
  22. Let me first say that CCleaner has probably been the most consistently reliable and useful program on my computer ever since I first installed it, which was a very long time ago. I'm a go-to computer guy in my family/area, and whenever someone new asks me the standard "Why does my computer run so slow?" I give the standard answer: "Because you didn't download CCleaner yet." I have a suggestion for a feature that I'd find very useful. I know I can already use the registry section of CCleaner to clean up the remnants of uninstalled programs etc. However, it would also be nice if the main cle
