  1. Yeah a lot more updates to come. I found it was better to do a few things per update, that way if any unforeseen problems happen I will know exactly what caused it. And with the huge list of things I want to add to the Windows Repair it will take some time to get them all done. When I do a ton of things in one update it is too easy for me to make a simple coding mistake, and I would prefer to not do that lol So I have sort of set my self on a release on monday or tuesday schedule. If I am able to get the time to get the update done during the week I release on one of the following mon or tues. Each update is improvements or new repairs. Since it is a repair tool I am always adding new things for more repairs. So with this program, updates are a good thing :-) Shane
  2. So MS sees XP as such a threat to 8 that they put 2 nags screen in lol. Even though it has been a while, I dont remember any other nag screens like this for any other old version of Windows, am I wrong on that?
  3. Odd they would add a nag screen to it when they already added a nag screen in xp itself from another update.
  4. 3 Fresh installs of Windows 7 today (3 different computers), all updates and the new version hasnt done anything bad to the systems. I haven't tested it on XP yet as I haven't had a xp reinstall in a while. They went from 4.4 to 4.5 I wonder if there was any improvements, to bad MS doesn't put out change logs for it.
  5. Windows defender on 8, which is just this, is still at the 4.4.304 version. But I just did a fresh install of Windows 7 on a customers machine, installed 4.4.304 from my installs folder and the new version does come up in the Windows updates. Yet MS still hasnt updated their main download page with it yet, odd.
  6. I checked Windows updates and no offer to update it and I am still on 4.4.304, I also checked their site and that is still the version they offer to download. http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=5201 Maybe the update is still rolling out across their servers and will be available later today or tomorrow?
  7. reimagerepair.exe isnt my Windows Repair program :-) You clicked on the ad at the top of the stie instead of the download link just a little further down the page. The actual file name for Tweaking.com - Windows Repair installer is tweaking.com_windows_repair_aio_setup.exe or the portable zip file tweaking.com_windows_repair_aio.zip When you run my tool make sure to have it do a registry backup first just in case. System restore really isnt needed as no files are replaced or moved with the repairs, 95% of the repairs have to do with permissions and the Windows registry, which is where about 99% of Windows problems come from lol Let me know if the program was able to help you at all. And a side note for anyone else, my Windows Repair doesnt not require internet access what so ever. The only time it accesses the net is when you first open it so it can check if there is a updated versions, which you can even turn off. Other than that it never touches in internet and has no need to. Shane
  8. Happy to help. I use MS on all my systems and all my customers (I run a computer repair business) I had noticed high spikes in CPU when doing anything and it happened more on XP than others but it happens to them all. So I started digging and found that trick, tested it and wow it worked lol. So now I do that as my default every time I install it. Of course me being somewhat OCD and a performance nut I couldnt ignore it lol Shane
  9. Sorry about the site going down, freaking apache has been crashing for some reason. Site is back up now :-) And now I need to deal with apache lol Shane
  10. I added the mof and mlf files to the WMI repair, so any 3rd party software that added itself to WMI should get added back now :-) Which was on that link Willy2 posted for /f %%s in ('dir /s /b *.mof *.mfl') do mofcomp %%s Good find bud :-D
  11. Panda will write itself back to the WMI when it does an update. I followed the instructions on MS website on how to repair WMI and deleting the folder was one of the steps. Also on http://blogs.technet.com/b/askperf/archive/2009/04/13/wmi-rebuilding-the-wmi-repository.aspx you will see the xp and 2003 they have the steps removing the old repository. But I will look over that link again and see if I missed anything :-)
  12. In case your wondering about the bug Willy2 is talking about he posted it here to let me know http://www.tweaking.com/forums/index.php/topic,643.msg5358.html#msg5358 I will be looking to it today or tomorrow. Keep in mind the program is still safe and fine to use. The odd bug he reported is after you open the repair window, close it then go back in. If your wondering Willy2 is one of the best testers I have ever had. No one picks apart my programs like him, he is kinda anal about it lol But he does help make my work better :-) I can fix any bug that I can replicate. So I ill be looking into this as soon as I am done with my jobs today. Shane
  13. Yeap pcwintech and tweaking are my two sites :-) Shane
  14. Of course mine does :-) You think I would leave that out? LOL http://www.tweaking.com/articles/pages/tweaking_com_registry_backup_online_help,3.html Shane
  15. Yes the advanced monitor runs in the mini monitor and is separate from the task scheduler :-) I also activated your email on my forum. :-) Shane
  16. Let me know what your email is and I can check :-) The advanced monitor int he mini monitor is the best way and easiest way to do it. To do it manually you will want to put cleanmem in a 2nd folder. There you put the settings in the cleanmem_settings file. And have the task scheduler run the cleanmem.exe from that folder. Dont use the cleanmem settings exe, it will simply overwrite your current settings on the system. Shane
  17. CleanMem v2.4.2 Released! http://www.pcwintech.com/cleanmem v2.4.2 Cleaning of the File Cache is now disabled by default. There are times where cleaning it helps improve performance and sometimes it doesn't depending what the system is doing at the time. So best to let the user decide to have it enabled. Added a new menu option to the mini monitor to manually clean the file cache. This new option is part of the free and pro versions :-) CleanMem and all of its exe's are now terminal services aware.
  18. Adding the menu option to manually clean the file cahce would give me a good reason to make a new version. PLus since cleaning the file cache is part of the free cleanmem and the auto feature is part of the pro I will make the new menu feature part of the free as well :-) SO I will make v2.4.2 today, have file cahce off by defult and have a right click option on the mini monitor :-) Shane
  19. Yeah me and my wife, and we are very happy. Have a healthy family with 4 kids and I get to provide for them and pay my bills by doing what I love and helping others its a win/win :-D Shane
  20. That is what is odd. Cleanmem runs from the task scheduler than closes, it isnt running in the background. So disabling the file cache shouldnt have made any different for a little while since it is only ran when cleanmem runs. None the less I am still going to disable it by default :-) Listening to users is how you make a program better. Shane
  21. Odd, I have the clean file cache option set on mine and never get the slow down. Also clean mem only cleans the file cache when cleanmem runs, so disabling ti and immmeditaly seeing a differance shouldnt of happened. In the mini monitor it has a timer and cleans the file cache as well when it is enabled. This is seperate from cleanmem. The main reason why I added the clear file cache was from my own system. When ever I did a backup my system slowed to a crawl. I checked the file cache and it was huge. When I cleared it everything increased in speed again. So I added that option to cleanmem. It is just flushing the file data from memory to the hard drive. (This is a good thing in case a power outage as well) At the same time if you have a lot of file data that has to be reloaded I can see that causing a slow down as it has to read the data off the disk again. Perhaps having it off by default is the best idea, and let the user decide to turn it back on. This slow down I had was when I was on XP. Since Windows 7 things have really improved, perhaps there is no need to have it on by default. Some side notes, my system is setup a little different. I am on Win 7 64bit, 8gb of ram. Page file disabled and memory tweaks in the registry to tell windows to load more core files into memory instead of the page file. My system runs very snappy compared to the when the page file is on and the meory tweaks are disabled. (The page file is dependent on the speed of the drive) I think I will go ahead and updated the cleanmem setup with the clear file cache disabled. Shane
  22. Should I have the file cache cleaning disabled by default? Shane
  23. I like how my name is in double quotes lol Shane
  24. I use the task scheduler to launch cleanmem and the mini monitor because of the UAC. It is the only way to have them start without the UAC prompt asking for permission. Shane
