  1. Thanks hazelnut - that was very helpful . Even so - may this be something which could be in a future version of CCleaner ?
  2. Thanks hazelnut . I have Win 7 . Right click on Start gives me a choice of Properties or "Open Window Explorer" . At any rate , is there a setting to clear this in CCleaner ?
  3. Here is the way to do it in Win Explorer
  4. Can I suggest an option for Win Explorer to delete the Recent Places list . Clicking on "Recent Documents" in Windows Explorer entry does not do it . Maybe this appears somewhere else in CCleaner ? Thanks .
  5. Thanks mta - that was really a help . I had nothing for Other Explorer MRUs - what sort of stuff is it ?
  6. Thanks mta - if you say so - you would know . Can you just explain briefly what other things , the Recent Documents and Other Explorer MRUs options , cover ?
  7. A good thing would be to clear the "Recent Places" entry that shows up in File Explorer . Or does this already exist somewhere ?
  8. The following would be really helpful for me , and I imagine others too , if possible : 1. For the graphics board , to show what connectors are available . HDMI , DVI , etc. 2. For the USB , how many ports and what type . 3.0 , 2.0 , etc. If this is already possible , please tell me how to get it . Thanks .
  9. Sauerkraut22 - thanks for the info on how to uninstall Media Player - sehr gut ! With this , it may be worth a try , to "reinstall" it back , as some of these things sometimes don't exactly work as they should . When Ccleaner is not running - try to delete or rename your Windows.log file - it let's you or not ? Have you switched AV's ( anti virus ) packages at all ? Ever ?
  10. Sauerkraut22 - OK . Windows.log = 0 KB should be no problem . It may be , that another program is already accessing this file , and CCleaner is waiting for it . Easiest way to check that , would be to boot in Safe Mode , and try CCleaner from there . If it works , then will need to see which program it is . I see from Hardware.pdf , that you have divided your HD into many logical disks . Are you separating multiple users here ? Did you , by any chance , assign some system stuff to one of the logicals ? Have you switched AV's ( anti virus ) packages at all ? How did you uninstall Windows Media Player ? As far as I know , you can't .
  11. Sauerkraut22 , if other programs are doing similar things - you could have some disk problems . Right click on your system disk icon , then Properties , then error-checking , click on both checking options . Some info on your hardware setup may be useful .
  12. Sauerkraut22 - you may have somehow got some access problems - try running Ccleaner in Administrator Mode ( right click on icon and choose that ) .
  13. MattinLA - what AV are you using ? If you boot into Safe Mode - do you get the same problem ?
  14. crashhat69 - if you can be 100% sure , that excluding yourself , then anyone with access to your PC , doesn't really have a clue about them , then no need to do secure deletion of the cache . However if any of those with possible access , is anywhere near really knowing their stuff , secure deletion of the cache , is virtually essential .
  15. crashhat69 , if you're serious about your system security , then the secure deletion is almost essential .
  16. Thanks Andavari - that's a cool feature . For some reason , it took a lot longer , as you can see from the captures . Could the Avast AV be affecting this ?
  17. Thanks people - I did change to normal file deletion , and it went real fast . The comments in Settings do say that Secure will be slower . But I never imagined , it would have that much of an effect . I would like to think that the routine doing the Secure deletion could be improved upon to make it much faster - no ? Failed to admit - court is in session ?
  18. Thanks guys - see the attached screen captures - the file names in the cache take a couple of seconds each - is that normal , or should it be running thru that list ? Andavari -didn't see anything special in Task Manager Super Fast - is latest Chrome , as you can see in capture . Fork based on Chrome - I'm not familiar with this .
  19. Thanks Andavari - it was already unticked . The CCleaner displays files from the cache , as it cleans , and this display moves pretty slow .
  20. When using CCleaner , the Chrome Cache Clean takes a long time - is there some Parameter in Chrome or elsewhere which can improve on this ? The IE Temporary Internet Files go real quick . Thanks .
  21. Thanks redhawk and mr don . I tried to be clear , but doesn't look as though I was too succesfull on that . I meant - to do a regular defrag - except , instead of each file ending up as one segment , they could end up as multiple segments , depending on what you wanted . e.g. a 30 GB movie could have been 100 segments before defrag , but 5 segments after ( not one ) . Does that come out any clearer ?
  22. I would like an option ( possibly in Options-Quick Defrag-Custom Rules ) to be able to actually leave some defragmentation for files . e.g. files between 5 and 10 GB will be defragmented down to 5 fragments etc . My reasoning being , that I think most users are probably only accessing , say 20% , of a data disk . If it's totally defragmented , so the disk heads will also only be accessing that same 20% most of the time . However , if it's still minimally defragmented , so even if only accessing 20% , chances are that the disk heads will probably be moving back and forth over most of the disk area . In my opinion , this is much more healthy for the disk life etc . Thanks .
  23. OK - thanks Hazelnut - it was already checked .
  24. Andavari and Hazelnut , I have been in touch with HyperHealth and sent them a copy of the entries I deselected from the Registry Scan results . They came back to me that only one of these 4 is connected to them , and it is a Securewrap entry . I did check and only deslect this one and the HyperHealth still works . I would imagine that any other program that used Securewrap would have a similar problem as I did . Might it be an idea to have an option somewhere to exclude Securewrap entries ? It takes the form in my case , of swep xx HKCR\swep xx , where xx are 2 numbers . Thanks for your help .
  25. Hazelnut , all I have in the Advanced tab is as you see in this snip. Andavari - excuse my ignorance - but how do I find this Registry location ?
