  1. I am having the same problem as those above. GC is not being cleaned as in the previous version. I do not use IE. I will revert to the previous verstion of CCleaner so that GC will be cleaned. I have a dinosaur of a computer, Win XP 2000, but have been satisfied with how things are running so far. That seems to be the only problem that I am having, otherwise, I am satisfied with how everything works.
  2. I installed the WinZip 8.1 version yesterday. So I have not had a chance to use it. Will let you know how it works. I know that there has to be a zip already installed as some of my files are zipped but they open up without me having to do anything. Sometimes it is not so good being a novice at all this but I am learning.
  3. Ok, without sounding to dumb, what folder should I download these drivers to. I checked to make sure I have a winzip and I do. I registered on DriversGuide and located the drivers you told me about, it is just that I want to make sure I put them in the correct files. Otherwise, I think I am ready to try this.
  4. I also want to let you know that you are the first one that has been such good help in explaining things for me to understand. Thank you
  5. I will just leave that VB and VBA program alone then. I just didn't want to delete it from CCleaner and mess something up. Some of these things are still greek to me and I am still learning. If I was looking in the right place for the make and model of my graphics card, it is an ATI Rage 128VR AGP [English] for the Gateway VX900T monitor that I have. It showed that it is working properly, but I wonder why my colors are good sometimes and garbled other times. The computer is a Gateway Pentium II w/intel inside E-3200 and from what I was told at the school we got it from that it was the Professional or Business version. Sorry to hear that yours crashed from downloading the updates from AVG. I hope mine does ok since I installed the AVAST last night. I do some a flashdrive. Mine is the SanDisk micro cruzer 2GB and they work just fine. It took me a little bit to get it installed but it works fine now. I bought it at Wal-Mart here in Texas and it was only $11.99 plus tax. I will go get me a couple more just in case I need to use the Win98SE CD.
  6. Hello again, Ok, I did as you told me and ran Regedit. I went to VB and VBA Program Settings, it showed Default [no value set]. I did like you said and highlighted the VB and VBA Program Settings, then clicked on Registry\Export Registry File and saved it. This is the only thing that came up. REGEDIT4 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\VB and VBA Program Settings] I do have the Win98SE CD that the school gave us. If I use this will it wipe out all of my data. I do ancestry research but I keep it all backed up. I would just have to reinstall my Family Research PAF5 program and my Obituary Daily. When you told me that AVG Free Home Edition would not work anymore, I uninstalled it and was able this time to download the Avast! Home Edition 4.8.1296. It seems to be working fine and already found a Trojan that I put in the chest. I am getting 256 colors now but they are not always steady, I probably didn't word that right. I will look at those drivers that you talked about and see what I can find. My monitor is an Gateway EV700 but it shows a Gateway VX900T. I noticed when I was looking this up in the Control Panel under Display that Avast has added several color adjustments.
  7. Hi again Keithuk, I will try that Avast again, it might have been that gmail was having a problem the same day. Now before I sound to dumb, as I am not that computer literate. When I went to Start and clicked on Find, I typed in VB and VBA Program Settings. It came up with a very long list of every thing that it was used on. When I tried to copy that list to give you, it only gave the first one on the list. How would I find a list to send you? Also, I checked to see if I had Visual Basics. When I went to Accessories, then Discover Windows, it said "Win 98 Tour 'Discover.exe' was not found. Win 98 was installed from C:\CABS\, Please insert 98cd or verify network connection is still active. Apparently the Visual Basics may be gone, I am not sure what that means. The school did give us a 98cd and also a restore disk. I had to use the restore disk 2 weeks ago as my color was really off. I was only getting 16 colors instead of the 256. I am getting the 256 now, but when it was still installing from the cd, it froze in the middle of graphics and would not do anything for 5 minutes, I had to shut the computer off ( I hate doing that ), but when I restarted it, all my colors came back like they were orignally supposed to look. What should I do now? I have really appreciated you helping me with this problem.
  8. I am sorry about typing in uppercase, I did not know that it was a sign of aggression or shouting. I will go to my start menu again and go to find and get the whole list of apps that are being used by VB and VBA. This computer belonged to a school and was we bought it when they upgraded all of theirs so I am sure that there is quite a bit on here. And I will check out the AntiVir Personal 7.00.03.02. The Avast did not work on mine when I tried it last April and it totally messed up my gmail and I ended up losing all of my ancestry research mail.
  9. I HAD TO UNINSTALL THE NEW VERSION 2.15 AS IT WAS NOT DOING ANYTHING FOR CLEANING ON MY GATEWAY PENTIUM II WIN98SE 128 MB. THE OLD VERSION DID THE JOB. I REINSTALLED THE OLDER VERSION THIS MORNING AND IT CLEANED EVERYTHING UP EXCEPT I SEEM TO HAVE A PROBLEM IN THE REGISTRY. IT SHOWED - Settings, Obsolete Software Key, VB and VBA Program Settings, HKCU\Software\VB and VBA Program Settings. I DID NOT DELETE THIS AS I WAS AFRAID IT WOULD MESS EVERYTHING UP. I WENT TO FIND ON MY START MENU AND LOOKED UP THE VB AND VBA PROGRAM SETTINGS AND THERE SEEMS TO BE A VERY LONG LIST OF WHAT THIS IS CONNECTED TO. I NEVER HAD THIS COME UP UNTIL I REINSTALLED THE OLD VERSION. I USE THE AVG FREE HOME EDITION AND IT HAS DONE A WONDERFUL JOB TAKING CARE OF MY VIRUSES AND TROJANS BUT THIS DOES NOT SHOW UP THERE EITHER. SHOULD THIS BE LEFT ALONE AS I DO NOT WANT TO LOSE ANYTHING? I DID NOT RESTART AFTER INSTALLING THIS TIME. SHOULD I?
  10. Not all of us can afford to go out and buy a new system when your on a fixed income. So guess my old dinosaur of Win98SE will just have to do with CCleaner. Mine quit working when I upgraded to the 2.15.815 anyway. Sorry Guys!
  11. Hello again I have done what y'all told me and put a download folder on my hard drive for the future. Now should I delete all the downloads except the last one to clean up my desktop?? I didn't realize that I was downloading it all to my desktop, until I checked my options on Firefox, duh. Y'all have been such great help. Thanks, tickerric
  12. Hello there, I use Firefox and the Download from Firefox. When downloading the updates, I uncheck the shortcuts, start menu and Yahoo toolbar. I thought that might keep them from showing up on the desktop, but that doesn't seem to work. It said when updating, that you don't have to delete the older version. If I do, will that mess up the current update? I started using CCleaner a few months back, and it has really helped a lot, but just need to get this desktop cleaned up. Thank you, tickerric
  13. Not sure if I am asking this right (newbie). Every time CCleaner puts out a new update it puts in on my desktop and it is starting to get a little crowded. Can I back all of these up to a flashdrive or floppy and use it from that? I have about 7 of these updates on the desktop. Thanks for any help with this problem.
