  1. "I'm not going to get into a war of words with you. It's not my style." Words that are CLEARLY inconsistent with your initial and subsequent postings, where I quote... "... before you start crying wolf..." "Just because you have a problem, doesn't mean the whole world has one..." "If you can't take the heat, stay out the kitchen." You consistently and indirectly berate my posts with superfluous banter that has no constructive value whatsoever. Clearly, your supercilious demeanor is better suited away from this forum, swagger. Regarding your statement, "...I just won't try to help you," clearly you are also diluted since you never offered any assistance - only a ne'er-do-well's divisive derision. MS
  2. Good to hear, Keithuk. I chose a slightly different path and created a simple batch file (with desktop icon) that does it all for me in a single click... where, from my PCs root directory, ccl.bat = copy "C:\Program Files\CCleaner_INI_file\ccleaner.ini" "C:\Program Files\CCleaner" Perhaps a similar batch file would save you the inconvenience.

  3. Glad to hear you have had no problems and have successfully accessed the site from the UK, robocod. Like you, prior to my initial post of Feb 28 2009 at 05:51 PM, I only used FF or Opera and never had problems. Never used a DLM since the, SLIM version, files have always been under 1MB. Interestingly, I have no problems at Major Geeks - therefore, the only conclusion is a problem with the server(s) associated with http://www.ccleaner.com/download/builds/downloading-slim as accessed from 56 PCs in the Saint Paul and Minneapolis metropolitan area of Minnesota. Martin UPDATE > Have successfully downloaded SLIM with Opera 9.64 - one transfer down, fifty-five to go (all accomplished via remote connection). > Sucess on 2 thru 10 of 56 PCs - as stated in my initial post, dated 28 FEB 09, I just wait a week or so and the problem is resolved - this time I waited (or so) - it must be the CCleaner server(s). LATEST UPDATE > All good things must wait... problem returns to CCleaner server(s) - whether Firefox 3.07, Opera 9.64, or IE. > No problem with Major Geeks - their servers have no problems.
  4. Understood - hazelnut . . . if you review my initial post, you will find that this was something that I was aware of (more days, than hours, based on my experience, however) "I just wait a week or so and the problem is resolved." At this time, the problem remains - after another round of 56 PCs. Interestingly, I have no problems at Major Geeks - therefore, the only conclusion is a problem with the server(s) associated with http://www.ccleaner.com/download/builds/downloading-slim as accessed from 56 PCs in the Saint Paul and Minneapolis metropolitan area of Minnesota.

  5. Interesting perspective. Glad to hear that you have not had any problems. Thanks for the sarcasm and for not offering constructive criticism. I have had the exact same problem on 56 independent PCs, swagger. All differing networks, many stand-alone. MS
  6. I am reposting my initial problem again because I thought that it was resolved by using Internet Explorer. IE may have worked ONCE before, but this morning it has the EXACT SAME PROBLEM that I discribed with FF3 and Opera. What is wrong with the CCleaner website and the Slim version, Piriform? Is it that Piriform does not truthfully want us using the slim version? Is the truth simply that Piriform wants everyone to use the fat-overhead, Yahoo-toolbar, crap marketing, full version? What is it? Please be honest and truthful because this is really starting to piss me off. As a consultant, I have recommended Piriform products to over a thousand clients. Given this OBVIOUS and REPEATING problem, I am less than 24 hours away from instructing my clients to REMOVE all Piriform products because they are no longer reliable - at least not in the consistent manner that has been the norm the last couple of years, less the last months with the Slim download problem - which has been a real pain in the ass. Maybe its time we all droppped CCleaner and use other products like Free Internet Window Washer 2.5 Disappointed again, Martin Smithson
  7. Looks like Major Geeks website lags behind FileHippo and the CCleaner website regarding the availability of new releases. Therefore, I have not been able to share the same experience, grewowl2. However, thanks for the tip - I shall try MG again. Martin
  8. Good point, Keithuk. Fortunately, for the past 2 years I have saved my .ini file in a separate directory. Once the new version of CCleaner is installed, I copy my backup .ini to the newly created CCleaner directory. Martin
  9. Thanks for your incredibly fast reply, there, DennisD. At first I thought it may be the .aspx suffix in my saved URL, so I tried your link. Unfortunately, the download quit at 35%. I suppose this may be a problem for only us lame 56K dial-up folks. I say that because I am guessing that your ISP is not a dial-up service. Thanks again for your response, DennisD. Like you, I wished it had worked. Martin EDITED . . . 5:15 PM CDT as follows . . . Got it to work. The problem appears to be my preferred browser choices - Firefox 3.0.6 and Opera 9.63 I hate IE6 with a passion and refuse to upgrade to IE7 or try the IE8 Beta. IE (in any form, in my experience) is excessively slow loading, poor security, miserably fails the ACID TESTS, etc. However, I tried my link as well as your link, DennisD, and both worked with IE6 version 6.0.2900.2180.xpsp_sp2_qfe.080814-1242. Immediately after, I tried both Firefox 3.0.6 and Opera 9.63 and both failed AGAIN. Trying IE6 came to mind when I remembered another time when I discovered or was informed that a website had been optimized for Internet Explorer, because the web pages failed to load with Firefox or Opera. Perhaps that is what has happened at http://www.ccleaner.com/download/builds.aspx or http://www.ccleaner.com/download/builds. Regardless, it looks like I will have to add http://www.ccleaner.com/download/builds to my IE6 Links - along with MSWindowsUpdates. Thanks again for your support, DennisD. Best regards, Martin P.S. To support my IE6 opinion, my current ACID TEST results include: ACID TEST 2 http://www.webstandards.org/files/acid2/test.html Opera 9.63 - PASSED Firefox 3.0.6 - PASSED IE6 fails miserably - not even close ACID TEST 3 http://acid3.acidtests.org/ Opera 9.63 fails, but reaches 84/100 Firefox 3.0.6 fails, but reaches 71/100 IE6 fails miserably at 12/100 - pathetic
  10. Hi all, Once a new build of CCleaner is released and posted, I typically like to remove my existing CCleaner and install the new build. I prefer the slim version, currently CCleaner v2.17.853 - Slim In the last 36 hours (or so), I have tried to download this build 5 or 6 times and, while it starts, it never completes. When this has happened in the passed, with other CCleaner - Slim builds, after 2 or 3 failed attempts, I just wait a week or so and the problem is resolved. This time, I am not as patient and I am 100% confident that my ISP connection is okay, as well as my O/S, browser(s) and download manager. I now believe that this is a re-occurring theme - within the first day or two after new build is released where my CCleaner v2.XX.XXX - Slim download begins, but then fails to complete. www.ccleaner.com/download/builds.aspx What is the issue with downloading CCleaner - Slim soon after it is added to the website noted above? Thanks, Martin
  11. As do I, Andavari. Thanks for your post. Regards, Martin
  12. I am in complete agreement with your perspective on Diskeeper regarding its ability to consolidate free space, anonymous_user. Diskeeper fails miserably with respect to free space, leaving far too much space between defragmented files. As a result, future files stored are often initially fragmented. I find this issue a HUGE problem when recording over-the-air HDTV broadcasts, where files often exceed 5 GB. Thanks for your post. Regards, Martin
  13. Thanks for your reply, davey. With due respect... I did express my interest that everyone refrain from making "moot" comments, and while your comments are interesting, I find that they have no intrinsic value (unless your goal is to market Defraggler) regarding my post. Thanks again, Martin
  14. Anyone have any perspective (or reason) why Diskeeper is (apparently) LIGHTENING FAST compared to every other defragmeter, including Defraggler? In addition to Defraggler, I use a FREE version of Diskeeper, specfically Diskeeper Lite 9 version 9.0.528.0 from 2005. Therfore, I would appreciate those who refrain from making moot or sarcastic comments regarding the issue of "FREE" software versus all other defragmenting software. I should also mention that when I defrag, the following batch file commands are executed to disable antivirus, firewall and other related software... sc stop AntiVirService sc config AntiVirService start= disabled sc stop AntiVirScheduler sc config AntiVirScheduler start= disabled sc stop BITS sc config BITS start= disabled sc stop wuauserv sc config wuauserv start= disabled sc stop SharedAccess sc config SharedAccess start= disabled sc stop wscsvc sc config wscsvc start= disabled ...as a result, slower defragmenters, like Defraggler, are NOT handicapped by issues of antivirus, firewall or related software. Other than its ability to defrag a single file (versus the whole drive), performance-wise, thus far, I find only one issue why I prefer Defraggler over Diskeeper Lite 9. Thanks, Martin
