  1. Part 2, The "Bad News": CC smacked HP's "Total Care" program and the Admn user's "Windows Sidebar" (.dll probs on logon). "Merge" didn't work, Sys Restore didn't work. Oh @#$!. HPTC is useless fluff, so I uninstalled it. I couldn't fix the sidebar; had to open another Admn User acct and move the files over, luckily not too many. I don't know why that happened, but I have uninstalled CC2.19 for now. The other 2 that have Norton are Toshibas, (so no HPTC) but I'll have to watch CC reg CAREFULLY, or just not run it. I don't see that the new CC has anything for the Norton issues; hopefully i
  2. Hi Folks- Finally got this done. Tshooting done on a Compaq desktop, VistaPSP2, Admn/Std/Std. Stock CCv2.19 (no exclusions.) Cookie cleaning, no problem. Registry scanning showed 4 Symantec/Norton issues: 2 "Unused File Extensions" and 2 "ActiveX/COM" Issues. Unused File Extensions: Symantec.NCO.BHO, HKCR\Symantec.NCO.BHO; and Symantec.NCO.Toolbar, HKCR\Symantec.NCO.Toolbar. Activex/COM Issues: InProcServer32\C:\Program Files\Norton Internet Security\Engine\\SymClgX.dll HKCR\CLSID\{whole bunch of numbers...}; and InProcServer32\C:\Program Files\Norton Support\tgctbr.dll HKCR\CL
  3. Hi Folks- Sorry I haven't had time to finish this CC/Norton thing up yet. The "Computer Gods" claimed the life of my old-old XP laptop. Doorstop or full OS reload,etc. I haven't decided yet. Blew a mobo on my old-old trusty Compaq W98SE/XPPro desktop, fixed that. Hopefully, that'll be it for awhile.... Anyway...so many Norton/Symantec files.... Vista users (like me): note that "Program Data" is prob a hidden file. Unhide first so CC can list it. Check the cookies: you'll prob see one like www-secure.symantec.com, keep it. Registry entries will include both "Norton" and "Symantec". I'll
  4. Even with the Norton quirk, I still think this is a great product and recommend it highly to all!
  5. Hi Folks- Toshiba laptop, VistaSP2. Yep, it did it. Had to run the Norton tool, reinstall and update. About every version from v2.13 up has hit Norton, but usually it's just a matter of updating from scratch. Not too bad, so I never applied the exclusions posed by Andavari back in 9/08. Then the new v2.19 wiped Norton out. I didn't see anything unusual in either the cookies or the registry. Yes, Nergal, I did read 'em all and do the backup, but I was unable to merge the backup. No luck with system restore either. Does CC hate Norton? No probs w/AVG and Avast. I see there's a new v2.2
  6. Hi Aage- Ashmaisv and Ashwebsv are for Avast, being the mail scanner and web shield functions. You also may see Ashserv, this is the Standard Shield function. I did a search on the Avast.com forum and did not see any threads pertaining to any conflicts between Avast and Ccleaner.
  7. Hi Keithuk- Pardon my laziness by doing a "2fer" reply last time. Yep, good PC100's are hard to come by, that's why I strip'em out prior to taking friend's/family's old 'puters to the recycler. PC133's are even rarer, but still can be bought for $$ (Kingston) limited size/stock. Thanks for the info on Defraggler.
  8. Hi Aage and Keithuk- I'm fixing a Compaq desktop similar to yours. Compaq 5BW130/Celeron with a Compaq 06C0H mobo. Orig had W98SE, upgraded to WXPProSP2 ? FAT32 with W98SE in another partition (D), 15GBHD (full!). Had PC133 256MB RAM with slot 2 empty. Specs say 512MB RAM max, but only 256MB max PER SLOT (1x512 won't work-tried it). And... to get slot 2 to read I had to update the BIOS to the "newest" of 4/18/01 (HP BIOS update addresses memory upgrades and using additional Intel products). I only have another 128MB card, so I'm at 384, until I scrounge up another 256MB. (I even might try a P
  9. Hi Folks- Just tried this tool a few days ago on a nearly full and messy 15GB HD (250MB free after cleaning). The normal Windows tool just couldn't handle the job. It took quite a while with 2 or 3 runs, but it did the job. I cleaned up the hd more (now @5gb free) and ran it 2 more times: another good result. Everything works. Thanks for the cool tool!
  10. Hi Nightbird- You just HAD to make this difficult! (Harr-har). So you were unable to put a Cc icon on your Standard User account because it's actually NOT a Standard User account? So you also weren't able to access your computer's C:Program Files/CCleaner folder from your (Non)-Standard User account and either run it from there or do RedDawn's method? You are correct about the corporate domain- you'll need to talk to your Network Admn. He/She may not want users doing these things, and may not allow it. Read the sticky "Running CCleaner over a domain to clean profiles" and talk to your Network
  11. AVG Free 7.5 support has been extended through Feb '09! Good news for you hold-outs!

    Hi ILG49- Need more Info. AOL Dial-up? AOL Broadband? AOL Version? If Dial-up, are you using the "Best-Connect" feature? I have AOL Dial-up on my HP Desktop, but do NOT use the "Best-Connect" feature. I also have AOLDU as a backup connection on my laptop (normally use wireless). Ccv2.13.720 did bang up the HP's AOL this past Tues, but it was the user order, and fixed by visiting the AOL Account screen name page to reset the user list. First time this has ever happened. AOL is also upgrading (again), judging by the number of connection drop-offs lately, that may have contributed to the
  13. Hi NightBird- Yep, you're only cleaning the Admn Acct. This is so easy that even I could do it. For Vista- you want to put a shortcut icon in C:\Users\Public\Desktop. Desktop is a hidden folder, so you'll have to type it in (or change folders properties). Do this from the Admn account. Right click, drag. You may choose whether you "copy" or "move". I "copy" as I delete it after cleaning- don't want the youts messing with it. Then log on each User and do your cleaning. It does work in a limited way for the Standard Users, but good enough. BUT: be very cautious with the Registery function
  14. Hi Davey- You're still on v7.5 and getting updates? I thought AVG quit supporting it at the end of August. Do you have the paid-for version? I really liked v7.5 Free. V8 Free is just sorta ok.
  15. Thanks Hazelnut! Luckily, my nephew's XP laptop had yet another CTF error and he's been unable to update for a coupla days. Fixed and done (for now). ps: We need you guys over on the Adobe Flash Player Forum!
  16. Hi Freezerock- Do you have your CCleaner set to clean AVGF8? It normally won't, unless you set it up. This AVG Invalid CTF file issue has been fairly common lately- scroll around at freeforum.avg.com and you'll see lots of threads. They finally put up a Sticky and FAQ that you used. Hopefully you saved it, as you'll need it again. I had to use it 3 times on my Vista laptop and twice on my nephew's older HPXP laptop toward the end of last week. I did not do any "Ccleaning" and do not have Cc set up to clean AVGF8 (forgot how). Hopefully, whatever is causing this increase in the Invalid CTF fi
  17. Hi again DennisD- OK Fine- you were right! Nothing relevant in the Guest User Account. Deleted the reg item in Safe Mode, no problems- Norton's OK and happy. Thanks again!g.
  18. Hi DennisD- Thanks for your reply. Nope, no Firefox. The HP desktop didn't show this reg issue, but it had Norton IS 2008 prior to my loading the '09, whereas the laptops had Norton 360. I was thinking this was a 360 remnant, perhaps of 360's Automatic Backup feature? The Registry Editor shows it as Name: "ab" in an icon that looks like torn paper, with "(default)" beside it; Type: "REG_SZ"; Data: "IOutlookPlug". I wonder if it's "stuck" in the registry of the never-used Guest User Account. I might messabout before doing your suggestion- no offense intended! ...and yes, I'm having fun w
  19. Hi Folks- I just installed/ran CCleaner 2.12.660 on my niece's Toshiba Satellite L305D Laptop, (VistaSP1, MSOH&S), after uninstalling the OE Norton 360 and installing Norton IS 2009. This Reg issue won't delete via Cc or RegEdit- "Unable to delete all specified values". Missing TypeLib Reference IOutlookPlug {4A3451BE-99E0-476C-AE7F-C2A5671AC22E} HKCR\Interface\{AC9CC9305-0A30-4015-92A0-0711EE24E720} I did search and read a few other threads about this entry possibly belonging to Norton, but no one ever said "Yes it is". Was this ever decided? I won't worry about it if it's Norton's
  20. Hi blacks3ven- This may not apply to you, but..... AOL could be causing the problems with their forced "upgrade" to AOL9.1. This bloated "upgrade" will take you directly to the internet with WebAOL as the home page and install a lot of add-ons, gadgets, etc. including AIM. They should have, but may not have offered a choice for this "upgrade". If you choose to "upgrade", do a custom install to slim up this bloated thing. I went through this with my VistaSP1 laptop and am fending it off on the older XPSP3 laptop (AOL9.0SE). Yep, we're still on dial-up.
  21. Hi Folks- thanks for your replies. C:\Users\Public\what th'!! Oh...the old "Hidden Folder" trick! Typed in \Desktop. No problem. Dragged the icon there, and all went OK. Dragged it back out when I finished-no problem! Much easier than doing C:\Program Files\CCleaner\CCleaner in each User- unless I get paid per mouseclick! Things went pretty well. The Rt click "Run as Admn" didn't work, just ran the Admn User's area again. So the Std Users were run as is with the limited capability. I didn't see much difference, it worked OK. I found a coupla wierd things: From the Admn user the UAC comes
  22. Hi Folks- I guess you folks are busy. I'll wing-it and report back.
  23. Hi Folks- Good product! Works good on my Vista laptop and my nephew's XP laptop, both single users w/guest turned off. But- my sister's Vista desktop has multiple users (Admn + 3 Std). I read in an earlier thread regarding an XP PC to put an icon in each users desktop (Documents and Settings\All Users\Desktop), but that Std users would have limited function. Does this setup also apply to Vista? Can it be "Run as Admn" (Rt click) for each user to get full function? I'd like to clean up this computer and then delete all but the icon in the Admn to prevent "oopses". I can put them back fo
