  1. That XPI installer is for Firefox only, it won't install anything into IE. Good that you found an older IE only version, although I previously only used SiteAdvisor once with IE for a very short while since it caused some issues in IE. Don't forget there's also the freeware TrendProtect for IE.

     

     

    Thanks for the info. Since I am not sure how the old version would work with IE8 and TrendProtect says nothing about IE8 I guess I iwll just wait.

     

    Have a good day,

  2. The reason I ask is when I installed it, it used only 1 installer for both IE & firefox. In firefox there is no option to uninstall it. You have to do it through control panel and of course that will uninstall it for both.

     

    Thanks & have a good day,

  3. The included help file IE80BlockerHelp.htm has all the information in it that allows for verifying the patch works.

     

    Let's say you extract the contents of the toolkit into C:\Temp these would be the instructions:

     

    Here's how to use the IE8 Blocker Toolkit on standard desktop PCs:1. Run the package IE8BlockerToolkit.EXE and extract it into a folder such as:  C:\Temp2. Start a command prompt and copy+paste or type this command into it, then hit enter:  "C:\Temp\IE80Blocker.cmd" /B3. Check this registry location:  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Setup\8.0  You should see a key with this value:  DoNotAllowIE804. Done!

     

     

    ...or if you don't want to mess around with the .CMD file you could use .REG files

     

    Do Not Allow IE8: Save as "DoNotAllowIE8.reg"

     

    REGEDIT4; Disables the installation offer of Internet Explorer 8 from; Automatic Updates, and the sites Windows Update and Microsoft Update.[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Setup\8.0]"DoNotAllowIE80"=dword:00000001

     

     

    To undo the disallowing and enable installation prompting:

     

    Allow IE8: Save as "AllowIE8.reg"

     

    REGEDIT4; Allows the installation of Internet Explorer 8 from Automatic Updates,; and the sites Windows Update and Microsoft Update.[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Setup\8.0]"DoNotAllowIE80"=dword:00000000

     

     

     

    Andavari,

     

    Thanks, the first method did not work for me at all, tried it several times and nothing. The second with the reg entries worked great.

     

    Thanks again & have a grerat day,

  4. The help file says to run this to enable it, but it didn't work on my system:

    IE80Blocker.cmd mycomputer /B

     

    This did however work:

    IE80Blocker.cmd /B

     

    Subsequently just double-clicking IE80Blocker.cmd works too.

     

    I'm using Vista and tried this command from the command prompt from the start menu and it did not work. Could you give detailed instructions on how to do this, so the dummy that I am can do it? :lol:

     

    Thanks & have a good day,

  5. Try Tweak UAC:

     

    http://www.tweak-uac.com/

     

    This enables you to set UAC to a low level so that you will not receive Administrator promts.

     

    Anderow,

     

    Thanks for that, I downloaded it and ran it, and all seem to work fine, the only thing I see is that even if I pick "quiet" Windows shows the little security warning saying that the UAC is "deactivated". I looked around on the site of the author of the little program but did not find any information as to this warning.

     

    Thanks again,

    Normandie

     

    P.S. I just noticed that you joined today, thanks for taking an interest and welcome to the forum! :D

  6. Thanks to all and even though I consider myself a power user, I agree with Caldor about leaving UAC on. I feel it is another safe guard from something sneaking in. I guess I will just have to get use to the fact that it is going to ask each time for permission, small price to pay for a little more security.

     

    Thanks again & have a good day to all,

    Normandie

  7. Sure:

     

    Turn off Vista UAC

     

    1. Launch MSCONFIG by from the Run menu.

    2. Click on the Tools tab. Scroll down till you find "Disable UAP" (this should probably change to UAC in next Vista beta builds and in the RTM version). Click on that line.

     

    3. Press the Launch button.

    4. A CMD window will open. When the command is done, you can close the window.

    5. Close MSCONFIG. You need to reboot the computer for changes to apply.

     

    JunkBuster,

     

    Thanks for the advice to disable UAC, but I really want to leave that active. What I do not understand is why all the other programs I have do not trip UAC and CCleaner is the only one that does. I had hoped there was a way to adjust or change CCleaner so that this would not happen.

     

    Have a good day,

    Hope someone can help. I just had to change computers and of course now have Vista, please no arguments about whether vista is good or bad I can't change the OS, well in the change I installed the latest CCleaner and I right clicked on the file and chose "run as administrator" but each time I click on the icon to run CCleaner UAC kicks in and asks if I am sure, is there any way around this without disabling UAC?

     

    Please forgive me if my spelling is bad, English is not my first language.

     

    Thank you & have a good day,

  9. I experienced an error while running the "Cleaner," I have Gutmann (35 passes) enabled.

     

    This error launched in the background, and didn't affect my session with the program at all. I noticed this when I closed CCleaner.

    Sorry I can't provide more details.. the error reporting is some-what lacking them :(

     

    Note: When I clicked "Close" after writing this post, another (a duplicate?) window with the same information popped up, maybe two errors were encountered? I don't know :(

     

    Same error here, I borrowed your image (hope you don't mind) and posted in the announcements part of the forum.

     

    Thanks,

    Normandie

  10. When closing the lastest version of CCleaner I got the following error:

     

    2w3vs7p.png

     

    I borrowed this image from another post, as I did not think fast enough to save mine. Thanks to JasonDS who posted it here:

     

    http://forum.piriform.com/index.php?&showtopic=13119

     

    Please let us know what to do.

     

    Thanks,

    Normandie

     

    Edit -- I decided until this was fixed to go back the the version 2.01.507 and of course the error is gone, the other thing I noticed is that 2.01.507 is somewhat faster than 2.02.525.

  11. Although I'm not sure why the cleaning of Statistics.ini is a necessity.

     

    Andavari,

     

    I don't know either, but those are the lines that were in the orignal winapp.ini shipped with CCleaner so I included them. Should that line be deleted?

     

    Thanks & have a nice day,

    Normandie

  12. I just updated to SypBot S&D 1.51 and CCleaner no longer lists SpyBot SD in the Aplicattions for cleaning. Is their a way to correct it?

     

    I found that the entry in the winapp.ini for spybot 1.4 was the following:

     

    [spyBot Search and Destroy]

    LangSecRef=3024

    Detect=HKCU\Software\PepiMK Software\SpybotSnD

    Default=True

    FileKey1=%allusersprofile%\Application Data\Spybot - Search & Destroy\Logs|*.*

    FileKey2=%ProgramFiles%\Spybot - Search & Destroy|advdebug.txt

    FileKey3=%allusersprofile%\Application Data\Spybot - Search & Destroy|Statistics.ini

    FileKey4=%windir%\All Users\Application Data\Spybot - Search & Destroy\Logs|*.*

    FileKey5=%windir%\All Users\Application Data\Spybot - Search & Destroy|Statistics.ini

     

     

    The new verions of spybot S&D is listed in the registry as:

     

    [spyBot Search and Destroy]

    LangSecRef=3024

    Detect=HKCU\Software\Safer Networking limited\SpybotSnD

    Default=True

    FileKey1=%allusersprofile%\Application Data\Spybot - Search & Destroy\Logs|*.*

    FileKey2=%ProgramFiles%\Spybot - Search & Destroy|advdebug.txt

    FileKey3=%allusersprofile%\Application Data\Spybot - Search & Destroy|Statistics.ini

    FileKey4=%windir%\All Users\Application Data\Spybot - Search & Destroy\Logs|*.*

    FileKey5=%windir%\All Users\Application Data\Spybot - Search & Destroy|Statistics.ini

     

    The lines in red show the old dectect entry and the new one I entered.

     

     

    I copied the entry from the winapp.ini and made winapp2.ini with the same entries and then changed the detection listed above and it show up again in CCleaner, but I am not sure of the other entries and don't want to use it until someone can confirm that I have entered it right.

     

    Thanks for any help,

    Normandie

  13. eew, single button on its own row, no way. Already have Site Hound filling that space tho like site adviser Site Hound is in accurate as well with less info.

     

    I agree as well, they should let us move the button, plus I don't like the fact that we have to have javascript working on the site for it to show the results when you pass over the icon.

     

    I do like the fact that you can select the types of content that you want to show as red, that is a really nice feature. Maybe in the future if they change the 2 things I mentioned above, I may switch.

     

    Have a good day,

  14. Well that concerns me and I'm sure that the experts on this forum will get to the bottom of this.

     

    When I first installed CCleaner I checked off each application one at a time and ran analyze to see what it found. I than followed the paths to see what was there. After I learned about winapp.ini and actually added Ewido 4 to CCleaner that way. So when I installed AVG a few days ago I looked a the winapp.ini entries and they don't look right. Some of the entries are not logs and there are logs in the AVG folders that are not targeted by CCleaner. So until this is cleared up I will not check off AVG.

    One thing to keep in mind though is AVG Free is very popular and there are many users. I have not red of one instance of CCleaner damaging AVG. I am new to AVG and have not spent much time on thier forum but I will do some searches and maybe post some questions there.

     

    Just for your info you have to register during the installation of AVG to be able to post on thier forums. It seems you cannot unless you have installed AVG at some point.

     

     

    Anthony A,

     

    I started off with AVG free and then went to AVG+Firewall, because on the Zonealarm free page, it says that their free firewall did not work on wireless, so I looked for something else & decided if I was going to pay for a firewall, AVG with firewall & virus seemed logical and I do like it. I have had no problems with it.

     

    One of the things if I remember right that CCleaner is going to clean if some of the old virus definitions that have "built up", then I don't remember the rest, but my feelings are if there is any doubt, I have enough disk space to leave them there, so I will.

     

    Have a good day,

    Normandie

  15. Did a few definition updates and ran a few scans with AVG to create some logs. I than ran CCleaner and cleaned everything but AVG. I than checked marked AVG and ran analyze with CCleaner so only the AVG data would show up. Take a look. Those paths don't look like the ones in the winapp.ini.

    Anthony A,

     

    I have seen all of this and I was a little concerned, so I wrote Grisoft and they said "under no circumstances clean these areas". Now they may or may not know what they are talking about, but I have never wanted to take the chance of cleaning them. With the size of hard dirves today, space is really not that much of a quetion and I did not want to take the chance.

     

    I know that I could get flamed for this response, but thought I would pass along what they said.

     

    Have a good day,

    Normandie

  16. The more I think about the fact that I can leave my "custom folders" in the list and if I decide sometime I don't was to clean them all I have to do is uncheck the box, then when I want to clean them recheck the box. That is really nice. Makes it really simple. A very good idea!!!!

  17. Boy, do I feel dumb :blink::blink: . That was the problem. After all this time using CCleaner never saw that check mark. I have NEVER used anything in the advance checkmarks so didn't look there. Sorry about that.

     

    Thanks for the help,

    Normandie

     

     

    Well, thanks for making me feel a little better about not seeing that. You are a prince!! :D

     

    Thanks again,

    Normandie

  18. under advanced, make sure custom files and folders is ticked off.

  19. are you sure thats the right folder?

    try going to start then run.

    type that in using your name in place of "myname".

    press enter and it should open up that folder.

    let me know if it does.

     

     

     

    neighberaaron,

     

    Tried what you said, worked fine to open the directory. I know it is the right directory, since I set it up that way so I could make AVG scan from inside ZIP files.

     

    Thanks,

    Normandie

  20. I am using the latest version of CCleaner and Windows XP SP2 all updates. I have entered a custom folder to be cleaned, but when I run cleaner if there are files in the folder they do not get deleted. Here is the location of the folder:

     

    C:\Documents and Settings\myname\Local Settings\PowerArchiver Temp Files

     

    Can you see any reason, for example the spaces in the name, why cleaner won't clean this out when added to the custom folders?

     

    Thanks in advance,

    Normandie

  21. I hope someone can help with this as its really peeing me off. My Windows (XP Home) has started prompting me for a Username and password instead of the normal Welcome screen and automatic logon I've always used. I went to Control Panel>User Accounts>Change way users log on or off, and the 'Use the Welcome Screen' box IS ticked but it still gives the log on prompt at startup. I even tried unticking the Welcome Screen tickbox, restarting then reticking the box to see if that would encourage it to work but it didn't. I used to be able to start Windows without any prompt of any sort, just turned the computer on and Windows would startup so this is a nuisance.

     

    Tried system restore but this issue still persists. Also tried restoring an ERUNT reg backup but that also didn't work.

     

    Any ideas anyone? (please)

     

     

    JDPower,

     

    Did you happen to install the Microsoft.NET Framework version 2 when you updated Windows? If so it created another account and that will obligate you to use the login screen as Tarun said, since now there is more than one account. I had this problem on a laptop and deleted Microsoft.NET Framework version 2, then the account it created and all worked fine.

     

    Hope you get this worked out,

    Normandie

  22. 1. Open this file:

    C:\Program Files\CCleaner\winapp.ini

    2. Search for:

    Grisoft

     

    It lists everything CC removes from AVG which is already applied updates, logs, and history.

     

     

     

    Andavari,

     

    Thanks I will give it a look and see if I can figure it all out. I noticed in some of those direcotires that the files go back as far as March of this year. That is a lot of things that are probably useless at this point.

     

    Thanks again

    Normandie
