  1. Very extensive update...impressive! Good show for those running latest OS & Browsers!! Can we expect that the "SLIM" version of this will be released soon?? Thanks! Sandy
  2. Thanks for such speedy reply & for the great link. Sounds like this shouldn't be a problem.
  3. Due to Mozilla being retired with 4 unpatched security holes & with my system specs precluding using Firefox & Sun Java 1.5.0 (aka 5.0), I find myself forced to adopt a SeaMonkey (successor to Mozilla Suite). Question: Since SeaMonkey will reside in the Mozilla folder (not deleted after Moz. un-install) and all plugins & profiles from Moz. will be retained, will CCleaner(1.33 Slim) still be able to delete ALL 5(?) caches & histories as it does now? If yes, should I un-install CC & then re-install after install of SeaMonkey (so it will find it OR leave and just accep
  4. Thanks so much for your reply. Yes! Quirk sounds perfect! Haven't done a floppy on this machine since (maybe never) as I have USB flash storage drives at hand for pretty much everything. Thanks again!
  5. indicator light activates as if being ennumerated. I don't want to call it a bug as operation seems normal otherwise. Latest 1.31 Slim version on XP dsktp. I can't recall seeing this in previous versions but they were run in non-secure deletion so maybe that's the difference. Perhaps it always has, but the sounds of the HD during overwrite calls my eye to the machine so I see it now. Does Crap Cleaner in some way utilize the small memory in one of the drives )floppy,DVDROM,CDRW as space to store overwriting material? Mostly curious. Thanks for your thoughts!
  6. oh, Boy!! Belarc Advisor did give what I sought: Safe & Sound Version 1.00 updated to Version2.00!! I'm fairly sure this is PART of the problem. I further noticed in the PC Health folder which seems to have some connections to Health Center & even possibly System Restore, a folder labeled TEMP (empty of course after CC) in it, so it does seem possible some part of this system is residing in Temp. I know I can exempt certain cookies from cleaning, is there a way I could exempt 1 temp file?? Unfortunately it has no specific label only "temp" so I fear not. Hmmmm..XP looking bet
  7. Thanks for the eminently sound advice to re-format. You, of course, are absolutely correct! ME has been MS's MOST unstable product since day one. One half is fat32 the other half is ntfs type stuff so it's no wonder it has schizoid problems in the functionality department! Unfortunately ,I don't have a full retail version to re-install with, only Compaq's "customized" restore disk which would probably re-install a bunch of problems (spyware, tracking, re-directs etc). I hesitate to do this since it's OEM, out of warranty & MS is killing support so I may not be able to re-obtain updates/
  8. In further researching problem, via Google, I came across several references to McAfee Safe & Sound (a back-up utility) and Restore Points NOT BEING CREATED while this program functional (versions b-4 4.00.1034.0) on Win ME & I have in fact seen this program listed in this computer, despite un-installing McAfee AV program from program list. Thought this might have a bearing on situation. "Not Found" message for Sys Restore would certainly prevent restore points being created. The counter intuitive part is that I have been able to create several restore points, which are still t
  9. Hi, I'm using CC Slim on my XP Pro & XP Home machines with NO problems using basically MILD settings (nothing under advanced) and love & promote the product on several forums. I was recently given a Win ME Compaq machine (model 5008CA w/ 128 RAM, 40GB HD,AMD Duron)which I've been asked to clean up so it can be given to someone's adult daughter w/kids. I'm un-familiar with this OS (but had 98SE) but all seemed to be going well as I used AdawareSE & Spybot & AVG to get rid of the baddies (8 data miners/10 down load Trojans, 8 redirected home & 10 search pages).
  10. Thanks for that info !! Clears up many questions. Only use IE for MS update page and updating Adobe Reader. Been very pleased with Moz's resistance to most problems and am happy to be out of the "line of fire" ! I would recommend to all (at least ' til enough of us use it to make it worthwhile for blackhats to write for it)l
  11. Thanks to all who Replied! Unfortunately......I have done no UPdates nor service packs since this new laptop has NEVER been connected to the Net (virgin) !! Guess I'll have to start guessing elsewhere. I did not note such a change notice on my desktop machine but it wasn't an HP product !!! Thanks again!
  12. [ As far as I know, it is freeware, so even though the term is pretty lousy, I guess it means you are allowed to distribute it (atleast aslong as you dont make any profit). OR....re-engineer it ...to add spyware for example....a problem that sometimes shows up in Open Source. At very least you could probably add a link to CCs site to your groups home page to make it easy for your members to download.
  13. Hi, There ! Although I've been aware of CCleaner for sometime, decided to wait 'til more familiar with new(to me) XP Pro (was 98SE) before installing V.109. Although a little intimidated by the vast selection of sources to clean, am now using and extremely pleased with results !!! However, on my first post install Scan with AVG Free, the results were all ok EXCEPT: 1 entry: System32...Shell Dll: Changed. Since I haven't added any other programs etc since last Avg Scan, I wonder.....is the change found possibly due to install of CCleaner? If so, this would put my (paranoid)mind to
