  1. That may sound like a good ideal but there's a problem with it, as in doing that with all programs: The Windows installation has some compatibility registry entries for software like Norton, etc., that it puts in the registry to reduce conflicts. Now lets say you delete everything that has to do with Norton including the compatibility entries originally installed by Windows and you later install a Norton product, you may have a problem. Also using RegSeeker to delete every entry it finds to a reference can cause problems, since some registry data is intertwined with other settings, meanin

    Yeah, and I won't complain one bit because when they were giving it away free a few weeks ago it allowed me to go from my licensed 7.x version to a newer version that's much better. Now that they've made it free without ad's they'll surely get more users, especially those like me who can't use Firefox due to it crashing on my system.
  3. That ideal may sound good to many however there's a problem with it. That being CCleaner.exe which itself once unpacked/installed is itself larger than the whole size of the setup program. I don't know if MrG changes CCleaner.exe everytime there's a program update or not, however if he does it would negate having such an incremental update approach. Imagine updating every component instead of having just the one setup file, the download size would probably increase as per example for the current v1.23.160: Single setup file: 498 KB (510,718 bytes) Updating each file singly: 1.25 M

    Mangix the more RAM you have installed the less likely your Display Card is to start scarfing at your System RAM if your Display Card itself has an insufficient amount of RAM. When I upgraded my RAM from 128 MB to 384 MB in my old Win98 system some years ago all my gaming related problems were minimized.
  5. I've been wanting to try that out for awhile. Might just have to take the plunge and download it.
  6. The ability for the user to select which *.pf files to remove is a very good suggestion! I for one know that the prefetch folder does need cleaning for the fact it can end up with loads of Microsoft KB updates that're prefetched and serve no purpose once installed, the same goes for installations from a CD source.
  7. Why would you want to erase the WinXP Restore Files partition? That's how you'd restore your system.
  8. Then you'd use the Restore CD that came with your PC to do that. That's if your system came with one. Some newer systems are using a restore partition for formatting and then reinstalling WinXP.
  9. The seal isn't the part that's easy to break. When opening up a PS2 console the power and eject button assembly which is one part has to be carefully removed because if it isn't the ribbon it's attached to will be damaged which will make it impossible to use the PS2 without repairing it. The ribbon is easy to damage for multiple reasons; 1. It's unexpected and someone will just try to take the upper and bottom halves of the PS2 apart damaging it. 2. It's adhered/weakly glued to the bottom half. 3. If the two halves tip over you're in trouble. This is what it looks like:
  10. Win9x you use a bootdisk with the necessary startup files and other necessary files which include FDISK and FORMAT. WinXP you use the bootable CD that came with your system which can Quick Format or Full Format the disk. No matter what your OS is I'd do a Full Format.
  11. Well it'll be D for me Denying to use it, until they F for Fixing it. Doesn't matter I'm using MS Antispyware.
  12. If all of it works for you then congratulations, however I had a different experience with it detailed in this post.
  13. The rails (drive slide mechanism) is what malfunctions when it gets dirty and needs to be lubricated with sewing machine oil. I'm so practiced at doing it, it now only takes me 10-15 minutes to take it apart clean it and reassemble. Looks like this: That's a known problem. The only solution I found with those discs which are CD's not DVD's is to constantly reboot the system, or go into the memory card manager area and then insert the disc and then load it from there. My problem is solved though because I sold all the CD PS2 games I had because I was tired of the loading issues.
  14. Umm no! Spybot SD's TeaTimer has a messed up malformed display. Arovax was uninstalled days before my system died on Friday. I was using and had resident eTrust EZ Antivirus, ZoneAlarm (Free), Microsoft Antispyware.
  15. That's a bit of a cheap shot. Dell is known for using propriety hardware, etc., in their systems however the system I'm on now is my second Dell. And guess what the next system I get will also be a Dell.
  16. I don't know if this is the same thing or not, however on my system I enable the Status Bar in an Explorer window by clicking "View->Status Bar" then the immediate folder size is shown (not sub-directories) at the bottom of the open window. It also works in detailed view.
  17. I'll probably end up with a PS3 for one reason it'll be more powerful than the XBOX 360 and will most likely continue having the type of games available I like to play. I only hope the PS3 build quality is better because I surely don't feel like taking it apart every 6-12 months to clean and lubricate the rails when the system starts to malfunction, like the current situation with the PS2. I'm not even considering the Nintendo system.
  18. I'll never browse the web using an Administrator account again because out of nowhere on Friday whilst browsing something (probably a virus or worm) wiped out allot of my hardware configuration such as "HKEY_CURRENT_CONFIG\CurrentControlSet" "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ControlControlSet" and so forth. My installed antivirus, antispyware, and firewall didn't protect me one bit! Restoring a registry backup, and a system restore point didn't work, needless to say I reinstalled everything.
  19. Yeah, more precisely at the top of each page everywhere in the forums. I mean if it's at the bottom why not at the top as well.
  20. For starters: - Restart Windows if you haven't done so in a while. - Check your hard disk(s) for errors. - Defragment your hard disk(s).

  22. I was wondering if it would be possible to have built into the forums a drop down quick navigation menu? The reason I ask is because when in one area of the forums it would be much faster if there was drop down navigation to quickly jump to another area of the forums. I was playing in paint and made a screenshot as an example:
  23. Start->Search->Search for Index.dat Leave the one in C:\I386 alone.
  24. According to the Help and Support section Win95 is supported as detailed here: http://www.CCleaner.com/help/faq_install.asp#q2.1
  25. For commercial AV I wouldn't choose either Kaspersky or McAfee I would instead use eTrust EZ Antivirus, there's a 1 year trial by visiting http://www.my-etrust.com/microsoft/. eTrust EZ Antivirus is the smallest commercial AV scanner I know of, the setup file is only 4.21 MB and when installed it uses consumes about 11 MB. I would actually choose Avast Antivirus Home Edition or AVG Antivirus Free Edition over many commercial AV scanners that are bloated and install too much. For any OS before Win2k and WinXP I would install AVG, I've seen far too many times with Avast where the resident s
