  1. I don't have Automatic updates checked on my Windows 7. I choose which updates to install when I feel like it. Always best to have a system restore point before any update. That policy is being a little ungrateful of M$. They should promote CCleaner because its like free healthcare to extend the life expectancy of Windows machines.
  2. Why not try a software called Rufus? I have used it to create bootable flashdrives and it makes that easy. https://rufus.akeo.ie/
  3. Been using 7-Zip for a while now. I prefer it much better than WinRar though because its more lightweight. Thanks for the news Hazelnut.
  4. Any Windows computer out there that doesn't have CCleaner is missing something very important. I feel sorry for them. I even developed the habit of running CCleaner on the machines that I get my hands on. The amount of junk that I clean from those often reach a few GBs.
  5. Hello, I've been quite inactive in participating on this forum for some time and its only recently that I realized there is now a CCleaner version 5. I'm using v 5.02 in fact. However, I noticed that you could no longer resize the CCleaner window as small and as compact as it once used to be. I know this is no big issue but its a matter of personal preference, especially if you want the windows of other programs to take more real estate on the screen. Could there be any chance to make the CCleaner window compact again? Anyways, I do like the new polished look of CCleaner. I suspect that this new polished interface also limits how small the window can be resized but if there is a way that we could shrink it more yet retain that polished look, that should should be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  6. I'm with the others. I would also suggest not having two or more antivirus software installed at a time who both have real time protection because having 2 antivirus software installed at the same time could be a system killer!!! I have seen machines performing really slow at startup because two antivirus software were conflicting each other and the results on system performance were devastating on lower-end machines. In fact, some antivirus software would warn you to uninstall other existing AV programs currently installed on the system when you run their installation setup. I would strongly suggest removing one of either Avast or MSE. No problems with Malwarebytes because its not meant to be a standalone AV program and can be installed on the same machine safely with another AV software. I have tried MSE with Malwarebytes as a supplement on a low-end machine and they worked harmoniously without conflicts that would cause system slowdowns.

    CCleaner v4.0

    I didnt even notice that CCleaner now has version 4.0. Good thing, I suddenly had the mood to hit the check for updates button and that's how I found out. I'm now about to try it and from the initial look, it now has adapted the new Metro-ish look and feel from Windows 8. Thanks for the update, Piriform!!
  8. My suggestion is that I would tick the boxes you have left unticked as shown from the screenshot. EXCEPT Start Menu Shortcuts, DEsktop Shortcuts and WIPE FREE SPACE. This would allow CCleaner to clean more than what it cleans now. There are files that have to stay in there longer, maybe longer than 24-48 hours before they can be safely cleaned. I would also suggest, if you like to use Winapp2.ini that can be found here: http://forum.piriform.com/index.php?showtopic=32310 After you download the files you just copy and and paste it to C:\Program Files\CCleaner directory. The next time you open CCleaner, it will take more time to load but when you go to the Applications tab in the cleaner section of CCleaner, you will see many more checkboxes added that you can chose to clean.

    Ubuntu for Android

    "Ubuntu’s smartphone platform will grant full desktop access once docked" That's what made me think its interesting.. Very interesting article, Hazel.
  10. Microsoft can't let anything hinder the release of Windows 8. I'm using WRP now, a bit buggy and I think it won't be a big hit. I want the Windows 7 SP2 but news like this upset me. Hopefully, light would come to them that they are stirring some of the essential things wrongly. They just want every single one of their engineers working for Windows 8.I'm using IE10 now and its buggy.
  11. I would also like an added feature in CCleaner's Registry cleaner to remove entries of .exe files that were run from removable media like USB drives and optical disks. Running program installer setup disks often result to orphaned Registry entries of icon files and .exe files that are located on those disks.
  12. I also like the use of skins or at least color themes. I've seen some other utility apps have themes. Also, maybe a scheduler menu should be avialble on CCleaner's interface. Not everyone knows how to use the Task Scheduler.
  13. I have also started a thread about developing CCleaner for Linux since I used Linux. I wasnt that happy with BleachBit. I didnt liked the interface and I have loyalty to CCleaner so I wish this would happen. I have suggested the use of CCleaner to a lot users.
  14. The neatness of the UI's design can help people like it even though they may not spend a lot of time looking at it. I prefer the light colors of AVG 2012 over the dark background on AVG 2013.
  15. I wasn't even aware that there is now an AVG 2013 until you mentioned it here. I'm happily using AVG 2012 Free on my Windows 7 right now. One of me mates and I were just discussing AVG earlier today because he was having doubts about his choice of antivirus software. And when I Googled for images of it, I said to my mind, what the hell? Have they gone crazy and thought this design is gonna work? I'm annoyed by the Metro interface on Windows 8 on the Desktop and this adaptation made by AVG just blows the UI and would baffle some users. Seems that the makers of AVG are Windows 8 fanboys. Hazel's got a point. What's important is that it works but AVG 2012's design looked neat, modern and eye-friendly. That would at least contribute to how people would like it. They should have just stick with that but with the new underlying improvements behind the hood.
