  1. I just noticed today that I lost a mega-ton of music, photos, documents, etc. because I somehow accidently deleted a bunch of stuff. I thought I saw that I had 2 DOCUMENTS folders (in which I put some emails that contained music, photo's etc.) so I ignorantly deleted one and later emptied my Recycle Bin. I Googled. Installed Recuva, read the online help but don't really and truly understand too much. I am in deep doo-doo and need lots of good sound advice. Give me all you've got please. In addition to whatever you kind people advise and recommend, etc., how much time do I have to get all this lost valuable data? Gratefully, Dumb Newbie PS: I've had CCleaner forever and I LOVE IT!!! PIRIFORM ROCKS!!!
  2. Since this is a BETA software program and touching the REGISTY is almost blasphemy, LOL, is it really wise for us to be using a BETA program on our delicate and sancorsant registries? I just wonder about the logic and wisdom of such an act. No offense or disrespect intended as I love PIRIFORM immensely, truly.

  4. Ntregopt and Erunt I just went to the publisher's site to download and install these per recommendations here. The man's site did say Vista compatible, which is what I have. After installation and much to my dismay, after I scanned them with my ESET security to make sure they were clean, I ran them and they were only XP compatible, NOT Vista as advertised. BUMMER!!!! I hate that. So, I had to use my REVO uninstaller to remove them both completely.
  5. I have to agree with JDPower on this one as regards REVO uninstaller and disagree with you (only my personal opinion, experiences and the zillions of reviews all over the `Net). It does completely and totally remove everything if you use it correctly and fully. There is also the MS Clean Uninstaller as well. I much prefer REVO though and cannot say enough good things about it. RegSeeker has been around forever and I tried it years ago on my XP. Did not impress me personally at all but I am glad that you found something that pleases and works for you. The 2 programs you mentioned, I looked up. One is a registry compacter. Never heard of those and still do not understand them or their function and purpose but will surf around some more. The other one is a Emergency Recovery Utility. Again, not famiar with these programs. Why and when does one need them if you don't mind telling me. As this puter is brand new with nothing on it yet, is it a good idea for me to download and install them? I want to keep this baby pristine and running smoothly having just lost my wonderful XP. I am still in mourning, LOL. So, if I understand everyone correctly here, it is unaninous and totally safe for me to begin using CCleaner's registry cleaner on my Vista Premium Home Edition. Do I have that right? Also, if you are so inclined, I wouldn't mind knowing what those 2 recommended programs are and when to use them. Does anyone else here use them? Thanks.
  6. Instead of RegSeeker, which does sound good, I use a wonderful freeware uninstaller called REVO. It does what your two programs does - one program instead of your two. I love it. I am still not sure about my Registry Cleaner question. Are you all say that the one in CCleaner is OK to use or that all Reg. Cleaners are OK to use? I have Vista Premium Home, so I need a free compatible one that won't take out or "fix" things it shouldn't.
  7. Hello I am new to this forum but not to CCCleaner. I've used it for years and know very little about it I am ashamed to admit. I have 2 questions that concern me a lot. Hopefully, you members can help me and maybe even put my mind to rest. By the way, in case it's necessary to know, I recently acquired a new home PC. It is an HP Pavilion home desktop with Vista Premium Home Edition - also supremely bloated with megatons of junk that I'll never use and have no idea what to dump and what to keep. I'm way past trying to use Decrapifier though. Like XP, it has a kabillion running processes I'd love to slim down and am totally ignorant on that issue as well. 1) Does cccleaner detect and remove tracking cookies and/or data miners? If not, what free program compatible with Vista Premium 32 bit does? 2) I've always read this for years and years not to ever use a registry cleaner. When I had my XP, it was always written that XP never needed a registry cleaner anyway. I don't know what they say about Vista on that subject. Haven't had it long enough yet. In any case, all the newsletters I get, sites and blogs that I surf to all are adamant about and against using registry cleaners. I don't know what to do and need advise. I know that CCCleaner is highly regarded all over the Internet and I use it every day to dump my temporary internet files. That's my story and my 2 questions. Any and all advise, comments and referrals about all I've written is welcome and greatly appreciated. If important, I use ESET Security Suite (Nod32) for my security protection. Thank you.
