  1. I have settled the court case! I plan on doing a review of Defraggler using my dedicated test PC. I can't say when, but it will be in 2009. The BS meter comes from dvorak.org/blog
  2. I may have mentioned this some time back and several versions ago. > Are you having icon problems in the Tool > Uninstall listing ? No > Have these problems always been there ? Yes, on previous versions as well. > Thanks for mentioning Vista Home Edition.I forgot to ask. > There have been some strange Vista 64bit problems relating to Administrative privileges seeming to work in reverse (Administrator not getting privileges and User getting them). My version is Home Basic 32bit, and it's possible I'm getting the reverse priviledges, but I can't tell becau
  3. Dear Davey Thanks for your kind comments. Unfortunately Microsoft has imposed the UAC on users in order to get them to pressure their software suppliers to reprogram their apps to work correctly with Vista. Talk about arrogance! I raised the problem here in the hopes that the excellent programmers who write CCleaner could have another look at this disaster called Vista. We bought my wife's HP laptop with Vista Home edition in February 2007, and immediately encountered some teething problems. SP1 has solved some of them (I can now print from my WinXP laptop to Penny's shared printer) bu
  4. My wife's Vista laptop has one user, which is also the machine administrator. Every time I click on "Run CCleaner" from the Recycle bin, I get the dreaded Vista UAC (User Annoyance Control) which takes 10 seconds to load, and 10 seconds to do anything else after clicking "yes". Needless to say, running CCleaner automatically on startup does the same. What settings cause this to happen? I can't see anything in the beginner's guide (yes, I did RTFM) and there are no icons next to any of the delete options (unless I'm blind) so what's going on here? I have disabled UAC for now. Maybe I sh
  5. "I understand it is beta software" ... hence my detailed feedback. Does anyone on the development team read this stuff, or are we just wasting our time doing testing?
  6. I am a great fan of CCleaner (except version 2.0) and so I was keen to try our Defraggler. I love the name. It reminds me a lot of the Defrag-A-File utility that I reviewed in "The Great Defrag Shootout". I understand it is beta software, and initial tests with small files looked promising, so I copied a 5GB data file into a compressed folder in WindowsXP to see what would happen. It's the "stress test" I use for all the defraggers I have tested. DF took around 8 minutes to analyse my drive, which is almost as bad as Diskeeper, but not nearly as bad as some others tested. By comparison
  7. I'd be happy with simple file masks, like c:\Program Files\LogMeIn\LMI*.log That would get rid of a lot of accumulated junk. Thanks for a brilliant product!
