  1. Also, if I have my usb device plugged in, I don't get a complete defrag since it is in use on the system. Did you defrag ok before? Even with the device icon?
  2. Ok, but the icon is there because it is detecting it as a removable device, not one perminantly installed.
  3. You brought up a good point and I would like to touch on it. If a USB modem's drivers are not properly or not installed at all, this will constantly come up as found new device. Just thought i'd let you know since I have had to fix this for many people. Take care, Paul
  4. This hardware wizard allows you to SAFELY remove hardware. I have a USB stick and you can acutally damage it by not clicking on that little guy and safely removing it. You can try and choose to always hide it in your toolbar options. Other than that, if you have some removable device, it will remain there. Right click your toolbar\properties\customize....now look in your list below or (may be on top if in use) find the safely remove hardware and clikc on hide when inactive, use the drop down menu and change it to always hide. See if that helps.
  5. I have Zone Alarm and HAD MS anti spyware, never had this problem. Is it possible you have something running or planted on your pc you don't know about? Virus, Spyware? This will sometimes cause registry issues when trying to use any cleaner. What OS you have? What other programs that you installed that may be causing a conflict? Let me know. Paul
  6. I use Vcom Fix it Utilities . Don't even talk to me about Norton because from a tech point of view, you won't like what I have to say. VC has the best anti-virus utility I have ever used. It will detect a virus even when hitting on a website that may have one, not just on your system. The full system scan takes only 10 to 15 minutes depending on your HD size and how many files you have. I have used every type of antivirus and I speak from experience and a technical point of veiw, VC is simply the fastest and best. It also has disk defrag\clean, reg cleaner\defrag\edit\backup\, system sn
  7. Defragmented files are for example, ----------------------------------- ------------------------------------ the lines represent your files...now, you uninstall some programs -------- ------ ---- ------ ----- ----- -- -------- ------- ------- now you have fragmented files, it's a tad more complicated but you get the picture. now, defragment them ------------------------
  8. You may be having other issues with your defragmentation. If you have programs running, spyware etc...or hard drive problems, you will not be able to do a complete defragment. Try running some spyware cleaner and run your checkdisk utility to find errors, then try and defragment. As far as the hardware issue, you should have that little icon on your toolbar down by your clock, you right click it and it gives you the option to safely remove hardware. Hope this helps... Paul
  9. Right click internet explorer\properties\content\autocomplete\uncheck web addresses box. This will no longer save to the address bar. And any entries will be cleaned by Ccleaner. Paul
