  1. I've been having this "...currently in the middle of a long operation..." problem for quite some time, across a few versions of CCleaner on my XP/Pro, SP2 and SP3 system (32bit). I've disabled Indexing, by double-click on My Computers, right-click on C: drive and selecting Properties, and unchecking "Allow Indexing Service to index this disk for fast file searching". Furthermore, my "Indexing Service" in Start->Administrative Tools->Services is set to Manual and is not in the Started state. I only have a C: hard-drive, floppy, DVD-RW drive. This long operation problem occurs frequently enough, but is nonetheless sufficiently sporadic to not necessarily be able to make it happen in a reliable manner. When this happens, I invariably have two "rundll32.exe" processes in my Task Manager. Running "Process Explorer" v11.21 (from sysinternals.com/microsoft.com), right-clicking on the process and selecting Properties, and then going to the Image tab shows the "Command Line" as ""C:\WINDOWS\system32\RunDll32.exe" InetCpl.cpl, ClearMyTracksByProcess 1" for one rundll32.exe and the same but with a 32 at the end for the other rundll32.exe. The Path is "C:\WINDOWS\system32\RunDll32.exe" and my Current Directory is "C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Desktop\" The "Threads" tab shows three rows with a TID 792 and Start Address RunDll32.exe+0x1bdc; TID 1596 and ADVAPI32.dll!WmiFreeBuffer+0xa7; 1159 and SHLWAPI.dll!0rdina505+0x37a (and this last entry has a CSwitch Delta of 80). I've no idea what these mean. I'm running CCleaner v2.11.636 on XP/SP3 by right-clicking on my Recycle Bin, and selecting Run CCleaner. If I "Open CCleaner..." In the Options button Settings, I have English selected, Add Run CCleaner, Add Open CCleaner, and Automatically check, are checked and Normal file deletion is selected. Cookies, Include and Exclude are empty and Advanced only has "Only delete files in Windows Temp folder older than 48 hours" checked. In the Registry button, everything is checked except Installer. In the Cleaner button, I have everything checked under Internet Explorer and Windows Explorer. Everything except Start Menu Shortcuts and Desktop Shortcuts is checked under System. And Advanced has everything checked except Windows Size, Hotfix Uninstallers, and Custom Files & Folders. Under Cleaner->Applications tab, Firefox/Mozilla has everythnig checked except Saved Form Information. Most things under Application, Internet Multimedia and Utilities is checked. Under Windows, I have MS Management Console checked. I never actually use IE, I always use Firefox (3.0.1). So I've no idea what the InetCPL.cpl is working so hard on. As far as I know, the "1" option is Delete History, and "32" is Delete Password. I'd be fine with it doing a Delete All (255, I'm told from random google lookups.) I realize the above is a lot of info, much of it probably not directly relevant but I wanted to cover my bases. My current method of successfully shutting down anyway is to simply End Process via Task Manager, after which I can Shutdown just fine. While this problem is hardly debilitating, and I admit I've gotten used to it by now, I wanted to at least drop this info into this thread on the off chance others are still having this problem, despite disabling Indexing Service and other things referenced in this (and other) threads. I don't have Nero 7. I don't have Windows Desktop Search thing installed (still an optional choice that shows up on my Microsoft Update, but I don't want it, so I don't install that.) I've not yet used the User Hive/Profile Cleanup thing. I realize that rundll32/inetcpl problems aren't really a CCleaner problem/fault. But if anyone knows reliable ways past this issue and still retain all of CCleaner's advantages, I'd love to hear them. Thank you for writing CCleaner and reading through all this. PH
