  1. Try the following (this assumes you have System Restore (SR) turned on): 1) Run Antibody's Wiztree and see how large the size of the folder "System Volume Information" is. 2) Run Defraggler on the other partition with the same options, as you have done in your previous post. 3) If the total amount of free space shrinks then abort the defragmentation and run Wiztree again. Did the folder "System Volume Information" grow by (about) the same amount that the free space shrank ? 4) Make a new SR Point. What is the new size of "System Volume Information" ? 4) Report back what you saw happening. This will also help others.
  2. - For your information: Norway uses 2 (!!!) variations of one (norwegian) language. One is called "Bokmal" and the other is called "Ny Norsk" (= "New Norwegian" ???). - Perhaps CCleaner wants to issue a language version for both (norwegian) languages ??
  3. - Glad you found the error. - "Fields & Fjords" are 2 different things. Fjord: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fjord - Given the odd characters the language also could have been finnish but the people in Finland use the Euro as their currency, not "Kronar".
  4. - - Would it help when I send the 2 emails (in *.EML format) in a PM to one of the CCleaner staff members ?
  5. - The second email was supposed to be directed to someone in either Denmark, Sweden or Norway because these 3 countries use the "Kronar" (see the text "250kr") or "Crowns" (english) as their currency. The currency exchange rate between NOK, DKK and SEK on the one hand and the EUR on the other hand also could confirm that the email was meant for a scandinavian country. There are some odd characters used in the email and those are used in those 3 scandinavian countries but NOT in the language (dutch) I use in daily life. "GOOGLE translate" thinks that the language is norwegian. ("tilbake" seems to be norwegian for "back"). - No, I only bought one license for 3 programs in one "package". That was in december 13, 2016 according to the dutch email. And I assume that the language was either dutch or english but I don't clearly remember. But it wasn't in 2 languages and certainly NOT norwegian. - The license key is the same in both emails. The expiration date in the dutch email was "13-12-2017" but in the norwegian version of the email the expiration date was "@CBMPOSTED@" (??????). This odd expiration date could give a (good) clue what could have gone wrong with the email program CCleaner is using. - "Alias" ??? Do you mean the name/alias of the email account I use or the name used in the body of the email ("Hi, ........... ") ?? The name used in the body of the email is the same but the dutch email contains one space more. Don't know if that would make meaningful difference.
  6. - I had (past tense) a license for the PRO versions of the Piriform programs. The good folks at CCleaner try to entice me to buy a new license (with or without a discount). So, they send me every now and then an email with an advertisement for a license renewal. Like the one I received today (in dutch). No problem up to this point. - But today I received 2 such advertisement emails, one in dutch (the red Arrow in the picture attached points to the dutch header text of the dutch email) and one in Danish (?) / Swedish (?) / Norwegian (?). The blue arrows in the picture attached point to the danish (?? or swedish ?? or norwegian ??) text header of the email. - And that got me worried. Is the email adress shown a legitimate email adress from Piriform ? Or is this spam ? Is this an attempt of phising from someone who used an email adress that's (remarkebly) similar to a legitimate adress used by CCleaner ?
  7. - For those who use Outlook Express Classic: [OE Classic *] LangSecRef=3022 Detect=HKCU\Software\OEClassic Default=False FileKey1=%LocalAppData%\OEClassic\Prg\Res|*.*|RECURSE FileKey2=%LocalAppData%\OEClassic\Prg\T|*.*|RECURSE ExcludeKey1=PATH|%LocalAppData%\OEClassic\Prg\Res\|dict-*.aff ExcludeKey2=PATH|%LocalAppData%\OEClassic\Prg\Res\|dict-*.dic ExcludeKey3=PATH|%LocalAppData%\OEClassic\Prg\Res\|dict-*.license (The last 3 "ExcludeKey" entries make sure that the spelling checker doesn't get "wiped out") - Questions: 1) Does it matter that "ExcludeKey1=" comes after "FileKey=" ?? Would it matter if I would reverse the sequence and put "ExcludeKey=" before "FileKey=" ?? 2) Was this already included in a previous "Winapp2.ini" ?? I got these entries through the program CCEnhancer (not supported by the folks of CCleaner and use it therefore at your own risk).
  8. - Although I never used the program myself, it seems that there were still A LOT OF people using Incredimail. But starting in March of 2020 IncrediMail has shut down its servers. https://support.incredimail.com/hc/en-us/articles/230698407-Application-Crash-on-Launch - The latest version of OEC (PRO version) released today, is now able to import messages from IncrediMail.
  9. - Yes, I received such an emails as well (now and in the past). The scammers overlooked - at least - one thing. I have put a piece of paper over the build-in video camera. So, I know that anyone who tries to blackmail me with a video is lying.
  10. - "Stephen CCleaner" wrote on the "Wilders Security" forum: "Farewell to Windows XP & Vista ( ; _ ; ) - Version 5.64.7577 is the final planned build for Windows XP and Vista - This version will only receive critical security updates - Read our help article for further information and assistance" (Source: https://www.wilderssecurity.com/threads/ccleaner-v5.370654/page-53#post-2899082 ) - Does this mean that future CCleaner versions will see: 1) the support for Windows XP & Vista removed ? 2) or that future versions don't get any updates for XP & Vista anymore and that the user has to make do with the existing Win XP & Vista support in CCleaner ?
  11. - I know the developers are still working on improving IMAP. It works but IMAP still needs more refinements.
  12. - YouTube alway was streaming perfectly in IE 11. Never had any problems. But I don't have an "entry level" laptop. Memory usage was also never a problem because I have still CLEANMEM running.
  13. - People who (regularly) visit the website YouTube with the Internet Explorer (e.g. version 11) browser (like me) will see a banner that says that Youtube is going to end support for Internet Explorer in the ((very) near ??) future. (They didn't mention a date when this support will be ended.) Those people are encourged to upgrade to Edge, Opera, Chrome or Firefox. (Not to other browsers ??).
  14. - I still have to make the jump from from Windows 7 to Windows 10. One reason is that I haven't yet found GOOD alternatives for a number of programs / plugins I use in combination with Internet Explorer 11 and that don't seem to be available for (GOOGLE) Chrome. So, I have to switch back and forth between IE 11 and Chrome which is a REAL "pain in the a**". - Does Windows 10 still contain Internet Explorer (e.g. version 11) ? And does IE 11 there still receive (security) updates ? The info on this topic out on the internet is (very) confusing. - Can someone recommend a good download manager for Chrome ? I would like to have program that can download mutiple files in one run. Sometimes a webpage contains mutiple e.g. *.mp3 files. I would like to see that the download manager "grabs & download" all those .mp3 files on that page in one run. - Is there a program / plugin (for Chrome) that allows me to "grab & download" videos from e.g. YouTube. I usually download videos with a plugin from RealPlayer and watch the video at a later date. There are also videos available I want to keep for a longer time. But YouTube now displays a message that it won't support Internet Explorer 11 anymore in the (near ??) future.
  15. - You also could try if a "Registry Cleaner" (e.g. In CCleaner) would be able to remove those obsolete registry entries. - Or try a registry cleaner that is (a bit) more aggressive than CCleaner. I can recommend Eusing's . I have used it for years and found that using it had no adverse effects. http://www.eusing.com/free_registry_cleaner/registry_cleaner.htm
  16. - Still using Win 7 but had no problems. - Or is this related to the latest "Preview Rollup update" that was released yesterday (february 7, 2020) ? This update carried the date "2020-01" (= january 2020) in the title. I thought support for Win 7 had ended last month (january 2020).
  17. - It's usually a sign that the un-install program didn't remove all files and/or all registry entries that were listed in the Winapp2.ini file. - You have to clean those entries yourself from the appropriate folder on disk. - And / Or (if you're confident enough to use a registry editor like REGEDIT) remove manually those entries from the registry. The file winapp2.ini will show you what to look for and for what program.
  18. - That's an advertisement and can't be removed in the Free version of OEC. If you buy the PRO version that advertisement isn't there any more. But the PRO version has some more extra features. See the website of OEC for all the details.
  19. - Another odd thing Defraggler. Somehow the program thinks that one file ("Verezonden Items.mbx") has ZERO fragments. Any other file has 1 fragment or more but this one has "0" fragments. See also the picture in the attachment.

    - I still think that a SPECCY weblink should contain a date (e.g. month & year) as well. That would allow all weblinks / Speccy specifications older than say 5 years (or any other amount of years) to be automatically removed. This is based on the assumption that users buy a new computer system or modify / upgrade their system every now and then. That would make that older Speccy data useless.
  21. - When using the "Defrag Freespace" the program moves files from selected files to the beginning of the drive. But it seems the program doesn't do its job that well. The program then also moves files to the beginning of the locigal drive from folders that were excluded. - I see that e.g. happening with video files that I Always keep at the end of the (logical) drive as much as possible. I then have to (manually) move those files towards the end of the drive (again). - My guess is that somehow the internal variables are not well enough "protected".
  22. - I still have a laptop that runs on XP. And this browser could make me decide to start using that laptop again.
  23. - The combination of System Restore and Defraggler is Always a cumbersome one. This is known to slow down the defragmentation process. - Reduce the amount of disk space that can be used by System Restore. If that's at say 60% of total disk space then reduce that to e.g. 30% or whatever size/percentage you like best. - Run Antibody's WIZTREE. It will tell you what the size is of that folder called "System Volume Information". Give us that number. - Turn off "System Restore", restart your system and turn "System Restore" back on (if you want to). That should help to free up that used space.
  24. - I agree, the pace of introducing new features like making the OEC the default email client program, is not very high. E.g. it took the developers a long time to add support for IMAP. But I know that OEC has only a small amount of developers at hand. - When it comes to introducing new features (like IMAP) it's the users who use the "paid for" version who determine on what is added to the program. The more people ask for one feature the more likely it will be that that one feature will be added in a new version.
  25. - Was this information leaked or hacked ? - Sometimes when I am asked to provide a phone number I give them a mobile phone number that has been disconnected. When they REALLY use it for (secure) identification ONLY then there should be no problem with this strategy. - (and with a Christmas avatar).
