  1. Open "C:\Program Files\CCleaner\winapp.ini" and you'll see what is removed. If you want to see other things that are removed look at the other .ini files as well.
  2. Currently with CCleaner alone the answer is no. The only solution is to use an installation watching program such as InCtrl5, Total Uninstall, or the installation watcher in System Mechanic however all three programs are commercial software and must be purchased. InCtrl5 is the less expensive of the bunch, and it's what I've been using for years. The way I try to remove as much of an uninstalled program is the following: 1. Uninstall the program, and reboot. 2. Backup the registry using ERUNT, and create a System Restore point. 3. Manually delete any folders and files leftover from the installation, being careful not to delete valid Windows system files. 4. Run and rerun the registry cleaning portion until no invalid entries are found using CCleaner, EasyCleaner (avoid the duplicate files finder), and RegSeeker (make damn sure you look at what it removed before rebooting). 5. Manually remove any leftover registry entries that the registry cleaners don't remove using RegEdit. You have to perform searches to find relevant items, and then browse through the registry to manually find other remnants. Note: Bloated programs for example like Microsoft Office, Norton Antivirus, etc., are difficult and time consuming to remove and may not be possible to completely remove from the registry.
  3. Neither have I. Since so many programs seek out "temporary" file extensions which are deemed "junk" I switched from using *.bak to *.backup in my programs, and to my surprise and unawareness Microsoft also does this.
  4. Good description rridgely, I was starting to wonder how this thing was supposed to work.
  5. I just tested it using metapad, and it didn't. However just right click the systray icon, then choose 'Open spelling window' to input words you may think are incorrect and it will give suggestions. Hmm, whilst typing this info in the systray icon changed colours, needs more investigating to find out if it does offer real-time suggestions.
  6. Cool, no more opening MS Word to check spelling. This deserves to be listed in the pinned freeware section.
  7. A ZoneAlarm temporary file, it can't be deleted when ZoneAlarm is running. You can add the Realplayer history directory to the custom folders cleaning option.
  8. If you want it at your preferred size: 1. Open Microsoft Paint, click Image->Attributes->Input the size you want. 2. Click Edit->Paste From->Browse to the image 3. Manually center it, and then save as a new file.
  9. I searched high and low for it yesterday using Google and some online stores and couldn't find jack. Perhaps you should contact the people who wrote the article for information about it.

    Jv 16 powertools

    I previously used it when Jouni provided it as freeware however he decided to go commercial. I used the freeware version up until it timed-out. It's a powerful tool "maybe too powerful" and definately isn't even nearly as safe as CCleaner. It has many options that can mess up a system without even trying. JV is Jouni's initials for Jouni Vuorio, hence the program name JV 16 PowerTools. Not bad for a very young and very smart programmer.
  11. I remember the games. Those pics would suggest that guy might have too much time on his hands, or he has too much time and way too many spare parts, nonetheless it's sort of interesting.
  12. The obvious way to avoid the dirt in the first place would be to use a plastic keyboard cover -- which allows the usage of the keyboard without ever removing the cover.
  13. I thought the way your post was picked apart and corrected was rude, but what do I know, just my observation. I was gonna make a comment about it earlier but decided to leave well enough alone. Just shake hands and make up!
  14. Are you talking about the Quick Launch toolbar, or the Systray next to the clock?
  15. Thank you! Good Stuff MrG! Amazing, once installed it's only 5,966 bytes larger.
  16. [silly Code On] Just don't be like the guy who washed his keyboard in the bathtub and then wondered why it stopped working. [/silly Code Off]

    Burrrn http://www.burrrn.net Audio CD authoring software that's very easy to use. Yet another impressive freeware program from Gambit. A small download that doesn't install any adware, malware, spyware, or viruses. If you don't know which package to download get the installer version. Taken from the Readme.txt file: Burrrn is a little tool for burrrning audio CDs with CD-Text from various audio files. Supported formats are: wav, mp3, mpc, ogg, aac, mp4, ape, flac, ofr, wv, tta, m3u, pls and fpl playlists and cue sheets. You can also burrrn EAC's noncompliant image + cue sheets! Burrrn can read all types of tags from all these formats (including ape tags in mp3). Burrrn uses cdrdao.exe for burrrning. --- Other features I found: * Burn-Proof: Buffer underrun protection for drives that have that feature. * Intelligent Write Speed Selection: If the Window has the write speed set at 16x and you insert a 4x CD-RW disc it will intelligently and properly adjust the write speed accordingly. * Quick Erase, and Full Erase support for CD-RW discs. You can use Burrrn to fully erase CD-RW discs which is something some commercial CD authoring software doesn't include. What this means is you can be sure with a full erase that the disc is put back in a "like new state." This greatly reduces the chance of corrupted files when you wish to create data CD's containing critical backups with a data CD authoring program. * Doesn't write 2 second gaps in-between tracks. Meaning if you burrrn a live performance it will playback gapless without pauses in-between the various tracks.
  18. Makes perfect sense, since many apps will try to steal file associations without warning, or the occassional click-it without really paying attention to what the dialog reads can be an annoying occassional application induced user error.
  19. ZoneAlarm temporary files. Can't be deleted when ZoneAlarm is running, EasyCleaner will pause for a long time and display they can't be deleted when ZoneAlarm is running, however CCleaner quickly ignores them without some lengthy delay: C:\WINDOWS\Temp\ "ZLT00a68.TMP, ZLT01594.TMP, ZLT02105.TMP" Add to CCleaner's custom folders cleaning option to clean this folder since it isn't being taken care of: C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Application Data\Microsoft\Office\Recent\ Perhaps a resident program such as SpywareGuard, since it creates similiarly named temp files which are always 16.0 KB (16,384 bytes), SpywareGuard always creates two of them. I've also seen other programs create similiarly named files however I don't remember what they are at the moment: C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Local Settings\Temp\~DF1790.tmp

  21. I don't know if these assumptions are correct or not, however about the only other things I can even think of are: * Insufficient provileges on your user profile that restrict the editing of the system registry. * QuickTime is running when you are attempting to clean the Recent Movies entries.
  22. Is there any freeware or commercial software that can turn DVD-Video recordings made with my home DVD recorder into a single file on my hard disk without the meriad of .vob files, etc.? Also can such software edit out the commercials? Exactly what I want to do is take my favourite T.V. shows and put them on my hard disk for later viewing, I'm not interested in making another DVD, doing anything illegal, or anything like that.
  23. I was wondering how useful the Microsoft Windows XP Windows File Checker is, and would appreciate expert opinions from the likes of DjLizard and Tarun. I've ran it twice on my system since December 2003, and today it did restore some original Microsoft protected system files. WinXP Windows File Checker info and description can be seen by starting a command prompt and typing in: sfc /?
