  1. @Moderator Andavari: Sorry, Moderator Andavari. It was an unintended mistake. I just saw your avatar instead of your name. (It is Sephiroth in your avatar, isn't it?) No insult was meant. It's probably just habit: I participate in other forums in which we have Moderator Sephiroth BCR and Administrator Sephiroth X. They have Sephiroth in their avatars too. @Moderator DennisD: Edited by Moderator: Don't assume to call me dude, or add further insults to the ones you have already made. That will be my last post in this thread.
  2. Not really. Google saves user settings regarding their home page in a cookie (i.e. one of the only two feasible means.) By deleting cookies, you take your My Google settings out. No settings = Classic Google homepage. Now, the point is: If you want to keep any cookie, then don't delete index.dat.
  3. But it does. Without cookies, a plain Google Classic homepage is opened instead of My Google.
  4. Actually, index.dat is not a cookie. To tell CCleaner not to delete index.dat, uncheck "Index.dat files" under "Internet Explorer" node in the main screen of CCleaner.
  5. Great idea, Hazelnut. That's what I want. I only have one condtion: Assume good faith in members. Next time, if you or any of your fellow moderators felt someone is crossing the fine line, just let him know. I for one, will stop immediately and will never do it again. Oh, and by the way, I was calm the whole time.

    Log in

    Your login information is saved as cookies. So to protect them, you must do the following: Do not delete index.dat Tell CCleaner not clean it. To do so, uncheck "Index.dat files" under "Internet Explorer" node. Do one of the following: Tell CCleaner not delete cookies at all. To do so, uncheck "Cookies" under "Internet Explorer" node. Tell CCleaner to delete cookies but also tell it to exclude the cookies related to BTYahoo from deletion process. That's what my friend, ident, explain above: Go to Options tab of the CCleaner, Cookies section and add cookies related to BTYahoo to exclusion list. I don't know what is the name of those cookies. If you don't know too, then either find out or carry out the alternative step above. [*]Make sure your Windows user account is password-protected.
  7. Yes. It can do it. Only very advanced forensic tools like EnCase can recover a bit of the trace of what you've wiped out with CCleaner. Normally, CCleaner only deletes and frees disk space. (That's enough for everyone.) But if you want to activate full wipeout (which is naturally slower) you must do it manually from CCleaner's Options section.
  8. If you are new to computers, then you might like to know this: CCleaner manual states that not everything that CCleaner's registry cleaner finds is junk. So, perhaps it is a better idea to not to touch CCleaner's registry cleaner until you've read a book about registry.
  9. You must ensure that Firefox is completely closed. To do so, close Firefox and wait for 30 seconds. (You must have also stopped all downloads from within Firefox and close Add-on dialog box if it is still open.) Now, open CCleaner and try to clean the cache. If you still receive the same message (which normally you shouldn't) then the Firefox is not really closed. Press CTRL+ALT+DELETE and open Processes tab. Make sure no "firefox.exe" is listed in there. If there are any, select it end click "End Process Tree". Now you should be able to clean your browser cache effectively.
  10. And also tell CCleaner not to delete index.dat.
  11. ^ That is correct... but only theoretically. Practially, a such bug report only gets bashed. This thread itself is a live examle. You see, I just wrote a casual comment. While DennisD could have simply asked me no to do it again, he chose the hard way: Isolated my simple comment into a whole new thread (i.e. this same thread) which serves no purpose but to bash the evil Fleet Command and his molevolent comment! (Don't tell me that you were under the impression that I started this whole thread.) This not the only instance of cyberbullying in this forum. Now, whenever you needed a real bug report, call me. I can send Registry backups and screen recordings. Otherwise, I've said all I have to say in this thread.
  12. No, I don't. Hazelnut meant the email service provider upon which the mail is hosted, such as Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo! Mail, etc. I mean the application with which the email is acquired such as Windows Live Mail, Outlook Express, Microsoft Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird, etc. Let's try to assume good faith in one another, OK?
  13. ^ I'm afraid there is no doubt the CCleaner is doing it. I first noticed when I was on a voyage and my sister who was trying to open her JPEG2000 photos had surprisingly discovered that they are associated with nothing. Only after returning home and spending two hours I discovered that the associations were removed by CCleaner. I successfully reproduced the issue. It was not only that. Aegisub and another program had also lost associations. Now, perhaps moderator sephiroth is right to think that exclusion lists can help but my ultimate objective is to use my computer to attend to my business not to attend to my computer itself and those problems which didn't exist in the first place.
  14. Actually, you need to keep both "login.live.com" and "live.com".
  15. ^ And what is your e-mail client application?

    History

    Hi, Cwmerchon I have Internet Explorer 8 and I tested your case. Here is the result: Depending on what exactly you mean by history, make sure the following items are unchecked: Index.dat: Always leave it unchecked unless you have checked everything else. History: Leave it unchecked if you wish to have the contents of your History pane intact. (History pane is the one that appears to the left of your browser window.) Internet Explorer 8 also searches History from Address Bar (which is cool; I wish Firefox could do this as good as IE.) Also leave it unchecked if you want the item below intact. Recently Typed URLs: Leave it unchecked if you want to addresses typed in your Address Bar to be remembered. (I believe this is even more important that for your wife.) This list is accessed by pressing the drop-down button beside the address bar.
  17. Hi, Yumenomado A similar issue is already discussed in another thread named "Deleting a specific file name from a folder and all its subfolders". Unfortunately, as of version 2.23.999, CCleaner is unable to do this. But I have already submitted a request to implement this functionality in "Feature Request: Deleting certain files in all subfolders". You can visit the thread and vote in favor of it, hoping that it will be implemented later.
  18. Hi, sschultz Having carefully observed and analyzed CCleaner's installation, I believe it is impossible for CCleaner to trigger such an issue. I believe it is just a timing coincedence. Anyway, why don't you try System Restore? Restore your system to some times before installing CCleaner. If the issue is resolved by doing that, then the problem's source is a software application, service or driver that you've installed or run within that time period. Otherwise, the issue source is hardware. (Don't worry about restoring: It can always be undone.)
  19. Greeting, everyone Thanks for letting me know your personal opinion. So, let's sum it up: judging by the discussion above, all participants seem to be more or less of the opinion... ...that there is nothing wrong with CCleaner's Registry Cleaning module. ...that even if there is anything wrong with it, that's OK because it can be assumed that (1) the issue is not critical, (2) there is a backup available to reverse the damage and (3) you couldn't possibly get any better results anyway since all Registry-cleaning tools are imprefect and, to some extens, faulty. ...that I, Fleet Command, have posted my original comment with malicious intent and was not acting in good faith. Personally, I believe that everyone's opinion is respectable for his own. Therefore, I respect your opinion and right to voice it; although, I do not necessarily agree with it. Thanks
  20. I feel it is not clear yet but the highlighted phrases are synoymous.
  21. EDIT: This post has originally been sent to starting out - what is safe to fix in registry as simple comment. Moderator DennisD has moved it here. Thanks for the information given Moderator DennisD. However, I'd like to add a few comments. First: Regardless of the fact that CCleaner itself can create registry backup, it is also possible to backup Registry via (1) System Restore and (2) Windows Backup utility. Second: Although I use CCleaner and love it as a good cleanup utility, I consider its Registry Cleanup module unsafe and dangerous. I have spotted multiple cases in which CCleaner deletes valid Registry entries. For example, CCleaner deletes some valid per-user file associations (such as those created by ACDSee) under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts. However, there is no point reporting these issues in this forum: Any such report in Bugs subforum is shot down immediately. Developers of CCleaner seem to be of the opinion that Registry Cleanup module is only for advanced users and not everything that it finds is junk. Personally, I use another product to safely cleanup registry and compact it. (Is it acceptable if I name it here?)
  22. The latest version of CCleaner can cleanup LSOs. To do so, navigate to application tab and check Adobe Flash Player node under Multimedia category. Now, can you please point us to the location of DOM STORAGE?
  23. Hi. I believe CCleaner should capable of searching inside a certain given folder and all its subfolders for files with certain name patterns (such as _cache.tmp, thumbs.db, checklist.ms, catalog??.thumb etc.) and delete them. (Note that these files might have Hidden, System and Read-only attributes.) Initially, I was of the opinion that this feature is fully-implemented in CCleaner. However, after a discussion in the forum (http://forum.piriform.com/index.php?act=findpost&pid=147199) it was revealed that the implementation is not complete and cannot perform its duty as it is supposed to. Thanks.
  24. Oppose. This suggestion is out of context of CCleaner. CCleaner is just cleanup utility not a full-fledged maintenance application and I prefer it to be this way. If you require automated maintenance, please consider using a suite of tools such as TuneUp Utilties. Alternatively, you can schedule Chkdsk to run monthly using Windows Scheduler found in Control Panel.
  25. ^ So, if we sum it up, Alan, it is agreement but disbelief in possibility? But I take everything step by step. First, a crude implementation is good. (The rationale: A notice is better than no notice.) Then step by step, refine the implementation each version. This should be the case with this suggestion too.
