  1. Thanks for the Input But ive tried this before and it doesnt work when working with GPO's Been a while since i posted this and all the computers on the network are still working well regards
  2. schedule a logoff task on CCleaner using task scheduler to run it at logoff and it will run everytime you shut your computer down but make sure to add the /AUTO command
  3. You computers instability might be due to other reasons have you recently or ever defragmented your computer how old is your HDD because they do wear down and is noticable after 2 years have you used the registry cleaner in CCleaner analyse then fix
  4. Have you ever heard of firefox? get it from getfirefox.com to set it up to delete when the browser closes select tools, options, privacy, then check always clear my firefox cache when the browser closes, select settings next to it and make sure everything is ticked then go back to privacy and untick the alert me before clearing files checkbox bellow the clear one
  5. just keeping the topic on the front page until its stickied or something lol Boink!
  6. i think it will only display 10.1 if your hardware is 10.1 compatible ie ATI HD3000 series
  7. From what i have experienced the uninstall does a complete clean sweep of CCleaner as though it never exhisted on the computer in the first place "reg entries and files and folders"
  8. Hi john go into the "Add A Program To Winapp2.ini" topic and download the winapp2.ini file place it into your CCleaner folder and it should have an entry to clean those pesky files (click on the application tab to see all available apps that can be cleaned after addind this) and it should also clean up a few other apps on your computer too
  9. I have tried many of the techniques notices and not had any luck with many i even tried to setup Task scheduler to start CCleaner in /AUTO mode at user login to no avail since Active Directory and the type of user logon seems to disable it by default. Then it dawned on me that Active Directory must have a featue in the General Group Policies to enable a program to be run at login and after an hour of trawling through the local GPO i found a feature that does just what i wanted and many people have been asking for. Note that i am not trained in the use of windows server and have been doing work at a local school with a relative, being the only on site technitian. they had been having problems with User profiles causing machine slow downs, hangs and crashes, so helping with other general work i mentiond crap cleaner to him. i started to Trawl throught the servers GPO looking for a helpfull feature, also note i have over 6 years of computer building and maintenance experience so it is not like i was going to destory an entire schools Domain and DHCP Host server lol. so heres the proof in the pudding and try it at your own discrimination, but it works and it works well but will take time to clean the machines completely if your users are machine hoppers since it will only clean the profile of the user that logs on. CCleaner must be installed on all client computers for this method to be of any effect running it as a scheduled task on the server couldnt kill either - no damage so far first we find the Run Logon feature in the User Configuration/Administrative Templates/system subset depending on verion of server run it may have another hierarchal order (server 03 in example Server 08 in Group policy 1 Image) Then select logon and select the feature "run these programs at user logon" Select Enable then select SHOW in the square box to bring up the Programs dialogue box select add and input the path "Installation directory\CCleaner\CCleaner.exe /AUTO" (example shown in Group policy 2 image) This is a tried and tested method and i am currently rolling it out over the schools computer network in aid of my relative Also if you have multiple user policys make sure to add it to every policy or it will only work on the policys you have enabled it on IE in the school we have a Pupils and a Teachers policy giving different privilages to each group Sticky this thread as many people have asked about this and without CCleaners ability to clean multiple profiles this seems the only viable option for Domain controlled computers also when CCleaner gains the ability of multiple profile cleaning it would only Aid this method in cleaning profiles instantly as a user logs on as it is far easier then setting up task scheduler on every single computer when all you need is to type in one string on a policy sorry about any bad grammer had a long day and rather tired at this point as ive just setup an entire rooms worth of computers earlier today aswell as having college lol Your local friendly techie
