  1. If you mean the AutoComplete dropdown list that appears in the address bar: Tools > Internet Options > Content > AutoComplete Settings > Delete AutoComplete history > [select items to delete] > Delete You can set "Use AutoComplete for" to not record these entries in the first place.
  2. Windows Explorer (explorer.exe) is an essential part of the Windows operating system, not Internet Explorer (iexplore.exe) which is the browser.
  3. To confirm that's the problem, try running CCleaner once with Windows Log Files deselected and then with only Windows Log Files selected, or try deleting C:\Windows\setupapi.log once manually and see if CCleaner will run afterwards.
  4. On the off chance that you accidentally created a new password, you might try http://pcsupport.about.com/.../passrecovery.htm
  5. What kind of files and what do you mean by "several files were removed and first copied them to the log file" and "seen in a log file"? What log?
  6. Deleting HKCU\Software\Google\ and HKCU\Software\Yahoo\ should do it but I recommend you back up your registry first.
  7. For Outlook 2003, it's in the registry HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Outlook\Contact|StripSearchMRU There's a winapp2.ini "*Outlook 2003" that takes care of all the dropdown lists.
  8. Is there any reason not to post the embedded .ini on the ccleaner download site (perhaps on the builds page) when each new version of the app is posted? Note that there is no problem downloading the portable version (a .zip file) from that page.
  9. You could check the "Created" date for the C:\Program Files\CCleaner folder and the CCleaner shortcut in the Start Menu and/or Desktop. Unless you deleted these manually when you did the updates, they would not be replaced and should reflect the original creation dates. I just checked mine ... updated last night but showing matching "Created" date from original installation. Doesn't prove you used it but helps support your story if the installation date is several years ago.
  10. You can insert, resize and otherwise reformat images in Word 2003 easily. You can use the dropdown menus or simply use View > Toolbars > Picture to open the handy toolbar.
  11. AFAIK the closest equivalent Windows app would be OneNote
  12. I think this is another "disable & hide" method. Notice that the last instruction is to create a registry entry "... Dword value. Give it the name Hide Messenger ... set the value to 2." EDIT: I did a little research and the method suggested in the article seems to be intended for XP without SP1. It seems to do what XP with SP1 does through the Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs > Add/Remove Windows Components ... which I was under the impression only disabled and hid stuff like Windows Messenger, Outlook Express, etc.
  13. AFAIK, you can't completely remove Windows Messenger ... it's integral to the OS. You can only hide or disable it and that's all that the so called "uninstallers" do.
  14. For Adobe Flash Player, CCleaner looks for the registry key: HKCR\CLSID\{D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000} Check to see if you have that key. AFAIK, for Shockwave & Avast AV, you need winapp2.ini entries. If you have them, check the detect keys. If you don't have them, you can get them here
  15. False positive ... known problem with F-Secure according to several posts such as this article
  16. I've never had a problem. Which version of CC? Which download site? Which anti-virus progaram?
  17. I just downloaded from filehippo and ran the install. See screenshot
  18. Do you have this problem with all Office Recently used files? When you said "If i open a office doc", I (perhaps mistakenly) assumed you meant Word. Do you have the same problem with Excel, PowerPoint, etc.?
  19. ??? What version are you using? The Slim version doesn't have the toolbar so there's no need for an option to not install.
  20. If the computer isn't yours and you don't have permission to go changing it, you shouldn't.
  21. Check to see if HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Word\Data|Settings is being cleared when you run CCleaner. The data in the key is a little awkward to read but you should be able to discern the filenames from the Recently used files list. Personally, I don't use the standard CCleaner routine to clean that key because it also holds the custom Word settings. I just disable "Recently used files list" in Word > Tools > Options > General.
  22. For some reason, CCleaner has routines for Office 97, XP, 2003 and 2007 but not 2000. You're getting the tick box for Office 97 because CCleaner detects the registry key HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\8.0\Common ... the "8.0" indicates Office 97. EDIT: I don't know if earlier versions of Word stored their "Recently used files list" information differently but CCleaner's routine for Office 97 does not have an entry for cleaning the Word\Data|Settings registry key.
  23. davey, I would agree with you if sparkyspark was upgrading 2.x versions but there was a significant design change from 1.x to 2.x. I would uninstall 1.x first. I found that installing 2.x over 1.x left behind unnecessary (but harmless) files. EDIT: I just read the announcement for 2.06 ... it'll be interesting to see if installing it over 2.05 will delete the now unnecessary winapp.ini.
