  1. Missing Kaspersky Network Agent dumps (part of Security Center suite) stored in : C:\Program Files (x86)\Kaspersky Lab\NetworkAgent\~dumps
  2. Hi, I've seen these files are not cleared with current version : %CurrentUser%\AppData\Local\WiDiSetupLog*.wdl
  3. Yes I agree. But Piriform release often new builds for CCleaner, Defraggler, Recuva, Speecy. Read once : ok Read : at each build..... too boring. We're looking for OpenSource project : http://bleachbit.sourceforge.net/ Maybe less options but open source.
  4. Thanks, I'll have a look @Alan_B : when does this has been applied ? When installing the product, Licence Agreement is link online which isn't legal in France it seems because editor (Piriform) can change the licence apply to all previously installed products. And We don't read LA at every build.
  5. Hi, We've installed CCEnhancer 3.7 + CCleaner 3.28 yesterday on a Dell XP machine. The user reports today taht he have lost his M$ Outlook 2003 contacts (stored in the .PST ?) Does full cleaning option can lead to this problem ? Thanks, Vincent
  6. New Temporary folder (Tested on Win2K3 server Std R2 Fr): %WINDIR%\system32\config\systemprofile\Local Settings\Temp
  7. C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download : Depends on your computer. On a fresh Windows Vista installation, it may be huge. For Google, Maybe they have changed it. Can't we add both of them ?
  8. Thanks, I've posted on the good topic. Thanks for hf_mig information. (Everybody can read this article which describe much more : http://blog.ryantadams.com/2008/02/21/what-is-hf_mig-and-can-i-delete-it/) Vincent
  9. Hi, I'll post here various folders I've noticed that wasn't cleaned by CCleaner accros multiple versions. Maybe some of those are already managed. C:\Program Files\Lenovo\System Update\session See : http://forums.lenovo...-p/90544/page/2 "You must keep system, temp, QuestResponse.xml and updates.ser, or else System Update won't start. You can safely delete all other directories." Size : 2.2 GB for me. C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download Contain Windows update temp folder. Size : 800 MB C:\Program Files\Google\Update\Download Google update folder Size : 22 MB %CURRENT_USER%\Application Data\Easeware\DriverEasy\drivers\*.* The driver updater DriverEasy (www.drivereasy.com) download updates. Size : 130 MB %CURRENT_USER%\Application Data\Easeware\DriverEasy\updates\*.* New software version are stored here Size : 5 MB Vincent

  11. Hi, I've downloaded the latest version with all options activated and some folders were not cleaned : %WINDIR%\SoftwareDistribution\Download : Contain Windows Update download directory %WINDIR%\PreFetch : Windows File Prefetcher %WINDIR%\$hf_mig$ : Windows Update folder %WINDIR%\$NtServicePackUninstall$ : Windows Update folder Vincent
  12. Yes I know it isn't... It simply add rules to CCleaner to be more complete in cleaning operation. So, you can read again my post ;p Vincent
  13. Hi, I'm using CCleaner 3.15 with CCEnhancer and it seems these folder are not cleaned : C:\Program Files\Lenovo\System Update\session See : http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkVantage-Technologies/System-Update-Delete-Files-left-in-C-Program-Files-Lenovo-System/td-p/90544/page/2 "You must keep system, temp, QuestResponse.xml and updates.ser, or else System Update won't start.

  14. Hi, I've a question on the command line parameter /L (Source : http://www.piriform.com/docs/defraggler/advanced-usage/command-line-parameters) "Lists all drives that Defraggler can defragment on this computer." Does SSD drives excluded from defrag ? Thanks, Vincent
  15. Hi, I've got a partial answer from a M$ forum : http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa384232%28v=VS.85%29.aspx I'm using a 64 bits Windows version under Windows 7 were a reflection mechanism is done for 32/64 bits compatibility.
  16. Hi, I need to retrieve default value at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Piriform\CCleaner which contain CCleaner install path only.
  17. Hi, I've find a strange thing on my computer (Win 7 x64 Pro Fr) with CCleaner 3.07 and Defraggler 2.05. (I've uninstalled both and installer only CCleaner 3.10 with the same problem This C#.NET code works : Ce code fonctionne : RegistryKey CurrentKey = Registry.LocalMachine.OpenSubKey(@"SOFTWARE\Microsoft"); This C#.NET code works too (HKCU) : RegistryKey CurrentKey = Registry.CurrentUser.OpenSubKey(@"SOFTWARE\Piriform"); This C#.NET code returns null : RegistryKey CurrentKey = Registry.LocalMachine.OpenSubKey(@"SOFTWARE\Piriform"); Here's the Registry export : Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Piriform\CCleaner] "UpdateCheck"="1" @="C:\\Program Files\\CCleaner" I've checked Registry autorisations. I've added a manifest file : <requestedExecutionLevel level="requireAdministrator" uiAccess="false" />. I've tried overloaded functions : RegistryKeyPermissionCheck.ReadSubTree, System.Security.AccessControl.RegistryRights.ReadKey Any idea ? Thanks, Vincent
  18. Hi, I've seen something which can be normal but not very clear in documentation : http://www.piriform.com/docs/defraggler/advanced-usage/command-line-parameters df.exe C: or df.exe C:\ Don't to the same thing. The first one defragment the entiere drive. The seconde one, only the root drive without subfolders. I think, a little precision could be useful ++ Vincent
  19. so it's useless if update are done and all right ;p
  20. Hi, I've seen that Windows Update cache it not deleted in repository folder : C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download Is this a reason to this ? If all Microsoft Updates has been done, this folder is useless. ++ Vincent
  21. The problem is we're using cleaning tools in different ways. Home: today. childrens are being go with computers when their parents are lost. So we must manage this from a higher level to avoid 'errors' Small Office: end users only. They aren't aware of PC maintenance. Of course they don't because there is an IT tech' so we must do something ;p. Letting them admin on their computer is dangerous but we can't take remote control machine per machine. Medium-big office: Here, users are more the previous cases end users with no control on software/hardware. Some companies want to externalize their IT management and wer want to help them to do this ^^
  22. @Nergal: MSP = managed services provider (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Managed_services) In other words, we're planning tasks which will run at a scheduled time or startup/logout for remote users in multiple companies which don't have internal IT/Network Admin. (Just a little comment on slim/full version. You're defition is 50% true. Yes the slim one don't have the toolbar + don't have shortcuts on desktop & start menu. So if we don't go into Program Files, or registry, we can't know CC or defragler are installed. For me, this usage is typically for admin whp wants to do some background jobs.) "If you really want your computer's users to have no control over cleaning do the following Install CCleaner with the option to save the options in the ini file. place the CCleaner.ini file in the c:\program files\CCleaner\ folder and place a shortcut to CCleaner.exe -auto in the all users start up folder." They don't need to have control, they're users not admins ;p I don't want to change all ini files on each PC using TeamViewer & Cie. I can do a BATCH file to move it & change it but it looks like a very bad patch. Another comment on third party files. Cleaning all users temporary files don't need really to run as a service. Program MUST run as SYSTEM that's all. So if a third party program (like Kaspersky Network Agent from AdminKit8) already run as service with SYSTEM credentials, when the agent launch another process (CC for example), the new process will run under SYSTEM. The only thing to keep in mind is to disable all interactive desktop communication (i.e. no message box or anything display to screen) because of Windows Vista/7 security. On this approach, I don't think there's much work to do. If you can get current user folders to clean, it's quick to loop for other accounts isn't it ? @Alan_B : "otherwise I ALWAYS launch CC in /AUTO /SHUTDOWN mode so that much more than %TEMP% is purged," because you're doing it on your PC. You need to understand that we've hundreds of PC running at different days a time. If we've planned to clean every month all temp' files on all computers with different accounts & password, your method don't work. (Remember that the cleaning task remote computers will run will start under SYSTEM so %TEMP% will be %WINDIR%\TEMP. Yes we can create a scheduled task on all computers to do this. (and we can install this task using our network agent. It was the first idea). But the main problem with this method is that we have no return on it in our console (success, failed, pending...).
  23. So, why the slim version is very very silent (no shortcut) ? Isn't for MSP to do background jobs ?
  24. @Alan_B : Maybe you're a bit frustrated in your environment ;p We're not here to show our CV and how many certification we have... Cleaning all %TEMP% at logoff is not a stupid idea. We all have our policies and security parameters. Configuration file are here just for these reasons. So If you don't think this feature should be useful for you, don't use it and let those who need it just use it. ++ Vincent
