  1. I thought CCleaner was supposed to sort out the Startup in Tools


    It's the first time I see that tab LOL! Ccleaner would not do this automatically but it looks like that would do the same as using msconfig directly.

    Up to you which items to disable. Some will be crucial for correct functioning of your hard/software. Here's a website that can help you: http://www.pacs-portal.co.uk/startup_search.php


    In the end, you can do all this but not gain a lot from it. Consider re-installing Windows if you keep having troubles. Might save you time and energy.

  2. All sensible replies. If it were me I'd start with some general stuff:


    -restore backup registry through ccleaner if possible

    -temporarily disable or even uninstall all protection (one by one re-install but like said, Avast alone should be 'sufficient')

    -check msconfig / services.msc for unneeded startup-items / processes


    Also check your task-manager (ctrl-alt-del) for processes eating up too much resources.

  3. Thanks for your replies


    Latest CCleaner download - Win XP Prof 32 bit

    Both cleaner and registry. Every thing that was checked as default

    Did not check prefetch or anything in advanced or anything that was not checked in default

    Rebooted and defragmented


    Not sure if it's better now as you defragmented. Is this about your boottime by the way? If so, are we talking seconds, minutes?

  4. You know what? Although I already settled for it you have a good point. It is not ideal. I use PE/TM for exact the same reason as you do: to have a visual indication of cpu usage in tray. While TM has always been sufficient, PE was needed for some troubleshooting some time ago and I then stuck with it. The batch file actually does a fine job and it even seems to do a faster job at shutting down. Nevertheless.. reconsidering! ^_^




    Btw, is it me or did you notice a difference in cpu indication between the two as well?

  5. Hi,


    I am on XP Pro SP3, latest version of Ccleaner. Problem is that /auto /shutdown does not always power-off the pc. I just read this thread but I am not sure if the info applies to me. Could someone clarify why it does not work or help fix it without having to use another app.



  6. Haven't tried DuckDuckGo for more than five minutes myself so did not really give it a chance. Instead I am still using Google but with the GoogleSharing add-on for Firefox which mixes your searches with other GoogleSharing users so that Google cannot track what you have been searching for.


    Just so you know ;)

  7. After using Ccleaner, the control panel settings of the latest flash player are deleted. So, they are not remembered. This guy already found it out a while ago but I don't get his workaround. Could someone help me or suggest an alternative?



  8. I ran into this problem as well a few days ago. Please make this 2 separate applications.


    I 'd like:

    1) to have my Firefox passwords cleaned

    2) to keep my Thunderbird passwords

    3) without having to change a setting in either of the programs for this. It 's exactly the purpose of CCleaner to be able to set all cleaning options in 1 program.


    + it 's just not clear in the user interface in any way. It has the Firefox icon + "Firefox / Mozilla". Changing that to the Mozilla icon + "Mozilla profiles" would already make things much clearer, imho. But best of all is to just separate the 2.




    I have to concur, spearate the Firefox and Thunderbird applications in CCleaner please. It's unnecessarily confusiing the way it's set up now and they are distinct application with different needs and utiltiies.


    ..and this.


    I am quite sure this will be fixed pretty soon as it's simply unclear that Thunderbirds passwords will be deleted.



  9. Actually I am thinking why a 'full' registry cleaner isn't in effect. So it would take a bit longer to clean out the registry. Who cares? I would only want to do it once in some many days/weeks anyway. Some intelligent scanning (like excluding the Netscape entries for example) should not be a prob for this team. If you say CCleaner you'd expect it to be thorough and complete.


    Your thoughts?

  10. Same 'problem' here. On a 10GB partition with 1.9GB free there's a message that less than 5% is available. This is in both the latest 1.x version as in the BETA.


    Please have a look at this. It seems a bug because it does defrag.
