    CCleaner v1.21

    I'd think skins would bloat the application download size, it's an amazing program for it's mere size. I'm not trying to shoot down your recommendation, however if you want a Disney looking GUI I'd say make it and optional component/plugin.
  2. Even though I'm across the pond the attack hit home since there's many Brit's on this forum, and many others in other forums I've become familiar with. I was first wondering if everyone in the CCleaner family from the U.K. was alright since I had just logged off and turned on CNN. Then interviews they did with some survivors whom were visibly wounded made it all the more personal when they went into details about what they experienced. Wish you all well, and your sister nation the U.S.A. is with you!
  3. nLite is a dead link on my end it doesn't load anything.
  4. LCD should last many years longer than CRT. Whenever I use my old Win98 computer the CRT screen really gives me some eye trouble, it looks ultra fuzzy when compared to the sharp and crisp display my LCD produces. I think my need for stronger glasses each year was caused by using a CRT monitor for a little over five years.
  5. This information is for you DjLizard I had a constant file extraction issue with Office 2003 everytime I would launch one of Speek's Frontends for command line audio related programs. ---------- The only solutions that I found was to: 1. Input into cleaning programs to exclude the file: opa11.bak Note: If opa11.bak is deleted it will trigger a missing file dialog when launching certain programs that rely upon Office installed system files such as mscomctl.ocx ("Windows Common Controls ActiveX Control DLL"), and perhaps other files which I was never able to determine which are installed by Office, not necessarily just Office 2003. 2. Copy all the .msi and .cab files from the Office 2003 install CD to a folder on the hard disk "C:\DRIVERS\OFFICE" and when I was asked again for the install CD I simply pointed to "C:\DRIVERS\OFFICE" and was never again bothered with a prompt to insert the install CD.
  6. What .dll file did you delete that is needed? I'm thinking there may be a easier solution to helping you since you don't seem familiar with MS-DOS.
  7. Thanks! That clears that up. Edit: Yup you're right, it comes from Microsoft Outlook with Business Contact Manager from the Office 2003 installation. Funny thing is I've never even opened it once.
  8. That can happen if too many programs are running. It can also happen much easier if say for instance you are scanning with Ewido and your antivirus resident shield is still active. The scanning process is taking up so many resources because while Ewido is scanning it's also causing your resident shield to scan every file Ewido scans. Edit: I also experience "page peeling" with Spybot SD during the update process when trying to move the update dialog. Perhaps it's using a higher than normal thread priority.

    How to clean D:?

    alguien sabe como hacerlo = somebody knows like doing it
  10. I tried it out and it was interesting. The only thing peculiar is when it gave recommendations of fixing SQL Server settings which aren't even accessable on my system due to the fact I don't have a way to edit the settings as suggested in MBSA. I don't know if SQL Server has to be installed individually or not. The only SQL related item I have is listed in services.msc as SQLAgent$MICROSOFTBCM.
  11. Looks like I'm better off sticking with MS then. I wouldn't doubt if the "more secure" rating came from the release of SP2 for WinXP.
  12. If drive E:\ is a cd/dvd drive you need to use the option on the bootdisk to load cd drivers, which will allow you to access your cd/dvd drive within MS-DOS mode. Note: When in MS-DOS mode be careful, drive letters may get bumped back one or more letters.
  13. Because I'm seriously thinking WinXP is the last Microsoft operating system I ever intend to use I'd like to know if Linux is as easy to use as Windows, or at the least somewhat similar to Windows? Edit: The reason's I want to eventually switch is because Windows is laden with non-stop security issues and bugs. And since there's a plethora of open source Linux applications available.
  14. I think so, it's never messed up either of my two systems (Win98, WinXP). The only thing to avoid in it is the duplicate files finder.

    CCleaner v1.21

    Another idea would be to perhaps implement mouse-over help/descriptions for the icons located on the left for people new to CCleaner. Example (Issues): "Issues will locate obsolete entries in the registry giving you the option to remove them."
  16. A "hard" configuration I've never had a problem with since I had some pretty strong blocking rules when I used Tiny, Kerio, and Sygate, and I understood very early on which protocols and ports to block so the difficulty of configuration is a moot invalid point for me. I was only pointing out the difference of Outpost Personal Firewall, which at first glance seemed alien in configuration when compared to Tiny, Kerio, Sygate. What I was getting at is manually configuring a firewall is a royal pain in the bullocks, hence there's a much higher probability of making input errors (user error) that will leave a system vulnerable. Having had and used some custom rule sets as long as my arm I know how much goes into making sure everything is correctly inputted especially when blocking some pesky ultra annoying IP addresses, and IP ranges I deemed unsafe.
  17. Scrubbing the registry won't work if you don't know where it stored the trial over entry, neither will any registry cleaner. There's usually always a free, or open source alternative that works on par or better than a trial/commercial version.
  18. Yes, however what I'm purposing probably won't respect the 48 hour safety margin. 1. Start CCleaner make sure Custom Folders is check marked under Advanced. 2. Click Options->Custom Folders->Add Folder. Browse to your temp folder. Notice the pop-up warning.
  19. Since I only allow System Restore to maintain approximately 5 backups at any given time I've never ran into it removing old restore points to comply with the space setting it's configured for. Since using CCleaner I've never seen a restore point added from it's installation, I've noticed this behaviour from different types of installers, for instance Inno Setup doesn't trigger the automatic creation of a restore point at least it doesn't with the installation packages I create. A question: Does System Restore automatically remove old restore points once the maximum allowed disk space is used without notifying the user, or does it notify the user?
  20. Thanks, learnt something new! I was wondering why the file when copied would automatically get a filesize, now I know why. Updated script (added xcopy without prompting, and archive attribute since the original file created by ZoneAlarm has the archive attribute set): cd "%windir%\Internet Logs" xcopy /y "tvDebug.1" "tvDebug.log" attrib +a "tvDebug.log" exit
  21. Those cleaning discs are known to kill CD and DVD disc drives, it doesn't matter if it's on a PC, or a beloved gaming console.
  22. Depending upon how much a floppy drive is used they may only last two years. They are at least cheap to replace! Lol.
