  1. Allows you to use CCleaner functions from the Start Menu if it's pinned like this below (1st) or that (2nd) without the option selected but still pinned.
  2. Hi, Hope it's okay to still post here and I hope this helps CC... I've found, to me, the easiest way to stop Hotspot Shield from starting, short of uninstalling it, is to use WinPatrol to disable the four Hotspot Shield services seen in the image below. It stops it dead, 100%, on startup, and I'm a regular user of WinPatrol anyway.

  4. Thanks for the patients with me, it's much appreciated. And the explanation, it does make sense, none of those characters should be used in any naming convention, at least not in Windows OS. It's a bit troubling to see FF allowed/missed it.
  5. I tend to to disagree. WMN is an add-on that's been granted full review by Mozilla and is available in the gallery with a warning-free install button. That should speak for itself.
  6. Thanks Hazelnut! Not to defer from what ever the appropriate action is in moving forward by either party, I want to share that I did receive v2.9.3 via an attachment in an E-Mail from the Dev of WMN and it works perfectly, the vertical line has been replaced with #. What a sport!
  7. Please don't hate me now but I did receive what I think is a very valid point. Since WMN is an approved Add-on per Mozilla, shouldn't CC support the way it is written?
  8. Hi Alan, My apologies, I should have done this prior to posting initially. I just ran a clean instance of FF and noted that WMN is creating their own cookies named as such, not FF. I'll take your reply and my findings to WMN with hopes to get this fixed. Thanks a bunch and again, sorry for the trouble.
  9. In search of support from wmn, it seems wmn is now using firefox cookie manager and in firefox I see that the cookies are named as mentioned. I hate to point fingers but it would appear to me that the problem is that CC is not recognizing that vertical line character. With security being more important, I'll have to give up the convenience of wmn till this is nailed. Any feedback, please. CC 3.15.1643 (64-bit) WMN 2.9.2 FF 10.0.1 Win 7HP64B
  10. Hi, Been a long time user of both CC and love it, thanks again for keeping it free! This may not be a bug of CC at all but please excuse me for feeling I need to share my recent experiences, only you would know whether it is or not. I've always noticed that CC would not allow me to keep any cookies from WebMail Notifier (WMN) but it never bothered me because, for some reason, I never had a problem with WMN retaining what it needed. But since turning-on Gmail's 2-step verification, it's become a problem. It's back to all good only if and when I deselect Cleaner+Applications+Firefox+Cookies before running CC. More details: Each Gmail account in WMN has three associated cookies. When I choose to keep any of them, it looks good on the right but, if I immediately click on another tab then click back on the Cookies tab again, I see CC dropped the ending part of the cookies name (the vertical line onward): As seen on the left: accounts.google.com[wmn|gmail|user1] google.com[wmn|gmail|user1] mail.google.com[wmn|gmail|user1] and on the right: accounts.google.com[wmn google.com[wmn mail.google.com[wmn Thanks a bunch
  11. If you mean working on encryption, here's my instructional e-mail: Hi, Have you ever thought twice about E-mailing sensitive information because you knew personal E-mail was unsecured? Send it as an encrypted attachment for free in three simple steps but only after completing the below three steps once to install and prepare. You need an OpenPGP key pair (see Wikipedia about), one is shared (public key) and, the other is kept private (secret key). What I encrypt with your public key can only be decrypted by you with your secret key or, in other words, what you encrypt with my openly shared public key can only be decrypted by me with my secret private key which is never shared. Don't worry, it really is very easy once you get past the install and key pair creation (see below on how to encrypt or decrypt, it's only 3 steps). STEP 1. Download & install Gpg4win (see Wikipedia about) with these minimum components: GnuPG (pre-selected), Kleopatra, and GpgEX, complete the install without changes. STEP 2. Create your OpenPGP key pair: 01. click "Start, All Programs, Gpg4win, Kleopatra". 02. click "File, New Certificate". 03. click "Create a personal OpenPGP key pair". 04. enter with no space "yourFIRSTLASTname and YOUREMAIL@ADDRESS.COM", click Next. 05. confirm your name and e-mail address is correct then click "Create Key". 06. in the Certificate Creation Wizard window, type randomly while also doing step 07. 07. enter at least a 100% quality passphrase (password) as many times as needed and click "Finish". STEP 03. Export Certificate (it's your public key): 08. ensure your secret key is selected/highlighted in the Kleopatra window. 09. click "File, Export Certificates" (not “export secret keys” below it). 10. save it to the desktop keeping the default file name as is, i.e. 8597777311961A49918E9D8F2HH40P70Q94K31RP.asc Note that it is not possible to recover a lost passphrase, anything encrypted with it will be lost forever. You will simply have to create a new key pair. After doing the above once, here's how to Encrypt and/or Decrypt with three simple steps: 01. click “Start, All Programs, Gpg4win, Kleopatra”. 02. drag and drop the attachment into the Kleopatra window. 03. select to Encrypt or Decrypt and follow the instructions. All the best and don't hesitate to ask for help, -- Selvan 1 of 850 in our family tree Lastborns
  12. If just encrypting e-mail is all you're after, I use GPG4Win to encrypt any attahment. Even when home, I don't send anything sensitive via e-mail without first making it an attachment encrypted with GPG4Win. And if websites send me my username/passwords in plain view via e-mail, I immediately change it. E-Mail is generally not secure, as you mentioned yourself, your ISP, the detinations ISP, and all hands involved between the two, can easily see it. I'm the proud owner of our online Family Tree, it's now nearing 900 individuals, and I make it loud and clear to all who collaborate with me to never send anything unless they also use GPG4Win. Sadly, if it's too confusing for them, I insist on snail mail instead. My Public Key can be found here: http://lastborns.tripod.com/ This whole topic of Unsecured Hotspots came about because I happened to take my laptop with me on a recent vacation. I never knew they were most all unsecured. I had to scramble for a solution just so I could check my non-https web based e-mail. And, it appears that OpenVPN is the best solution. Fortunately, it's offered as a free service but, like most all stuff I've used for free, it won't be long before the good ones will start charging. But, hopefully not. Comodo jumped in and offered it's TrustConnect but it's a paid-for service that comes bundled with CIS Complete, I only use their free version.
  13. If anyone knows of a better free solution to being safe while away from home on an unsecured WiFi Hotspot, please share. As far as I am concerned, a Chinese Wall is better than No Wall. Cookies, you either like 'em or you don't.
  14. No issuess here with v3.14.1616 (64b), or any other previous versions, on Win 7 HP 64B SP1. If in your shoes, I would: make a complete backup of the disk uninstall CC reboot delete all found in C: or any other drive delete all found in the registry (keys, values, & data after very careful review) reboot re-install CC and hope all is good (but only after you are certain all traces of CC is gone) If not, restore the disk backup you created and wait for the develepores.
