  1. Hi, just wondering if any of you clever folk have come up with a cleaning path/paths for the Spartan browser?
  2. On *any* AusLogics product download page, there is the following: "Click on the download button above to download the program from Download.com, otherwise download directly from this web site." (my bold, italics, etc) It's right there if only one uses one's eyes... and the same goes for NOT installer addon toolbars! Trouble is, most folk are too hasty when downloading & installing stuff...
  3. Forget the horribly over-bloated Firefox (which used to be good circa 1.0 PR) and try out the stripped-down Pale Moon browser!
  4. I am now 39 years old plus one day...
  5. It was nothing to do with whatever anyone mentioned here... Microsoft went and changed the "user sign-in experience" or somesuch thing, but now they've switched back to the "old" way to sign in - no one here knew about this?
  6. Hear hear Nergal! One of my facebook friends suggested it was an error with MSN in Sydney which would be fixed soon... but it ain't! Haven't tried the portable way yet...
  7. I get this from Chrome: Server error An invalid response was received while attempting to load http://sn127w.snt127.mail.live.com/default.aspx. The server may be down for maintenance or configured incorrectly. Here are some suggestions: Reload this web page later. HTTP Error 502 (Bad Gateway): The gateway or proxy server received an invalid response from an upstream server. Firefox and Safari give me a blank page, hitting refresh or highlighting the address returns the same blank page. Opera gives me this: HTTP gateway failed Check that the address is spelled correctly, or try searching for the site. No ad-blockers or anything remotely related whatsoever.
  8. ... has anyone else been experiencing this of late? I am able to access Hotmail only through IE9, the other browsers come up with a blank page or error message and it's really annoying, as I don't use IE that much usually!

    Ubuntu 11

    Downloaded, burnt to ISO, installed... first as an application on the C:drive, which they say reduces disk speed or sumsuch... uninstalled, set up a separtate partition using EASEUS... reboot, install on new partition but not without a lot o' fuss 'n' bother over needed to use a partition for "swap space", WHAT THE?! eventually sorted that out, or so i thought... reboot computer, my Windows installation is no longer there! it doesn't even show up in Ubuntu's disk viewer! Stuff that, says I, and try to reover my system... no can do! can't even install windows over the ubuntu partition - won't let me format it! Soooo I go's all the way back to my original Windows recovery disk, etc... The last time I installed Ubuntu with Windows it was a triple-booter: Win Vista, Win 7 & Ubuntu-whatever version it was at the time - no probs then! I rather like the look of Ubuntu 11, especially the Launcher on Unity desktop, but I think I need to put it on a separate hard disk or USB altogether... But at the end of the day I 110% prefer Windows.
  10. Gave 'er a try, put 'er in "advanced user mode" and found myself lost at every single turn, a lot of clicking around just to immunize the system plus numerous dialogue boxes, and don't even get me STARTED on the uninstall routine!! And I'd been waiting yearssss for an updated Spybot too
  11. Filehippo host the standard CCleaner download, MajorGeeks offer standard, Slim & Portable editions. As both IE & Chrome are *not* my default browsers, I never get these extra toolbar options.
  12. I've been WAITING ALL WEEK for this one, thanks!!!
  13. As someone who tends to do a complete format and reinstallation of Windows every 30-60 days, I find it hard to believe that you've (apparently) had the same installation in place since CCleaner 1.0 ..... even if you don't do a lot of installing/uninstalling of software like I do, it would still be beneficial to create a fresh Windows installation at least once a year, I'm thinking.
  14. I've tried out this one after it was added to CCleaner and I really can't see the attraction of it, just another Chrome-wannabe I'm thinking...
  15. http://au.news.yahoo.com/a/-/mp/8205080/time-traveller-caught-at-1928-chaplin-film-premiere/ Someone's taking the proverbial, yes?
  16. I turned 38 on September 22nd Doesn't feel any different to 37...
  17. IE9 is still cleaned, beta or not - just like any browswer using the IE engine.
  18. It also depends upon whether you have ticked the "compact databases" option under Firefox and Chrome, that takes a few extra seconds to do.
  19. The Pale Moon cleaning path is C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\Moonchild Productions\Pale Moon\Profiles\etc* - on my system under Windows 7 at least. *extra stuff that i really couldn't be bothered adding in
  20. All those extra program cleaners tucked into one little .exe file - good work guys!! I'd never heard of Pale Moon before now, and now I'm using it over FF Plus I've given SRWare Iron a go but really can't see the appeal of it over Chrome, considering it IS like Chrome...
  21. ishan, I was hanging around waiting for Softpedia to announce the arrival of IE9... or in this instance, I have a Softpedia writer on Twitter, who was at the Beauty of the Web launch, and he tweeted the download link boubou, the full version of IE9 is released whenever it is released
  22. Looks and works great so far... my only complaint is the multiple thumbnail images view even with only one window open - Opera was able to get rid of that, so why can't Microsoft? http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/internet-explorer/download/ie-9/worldwide
  23. I haven't read many of your posts ident, but props to you for this one
  24. In the early days of CCleaner I wasn't much of a fan, but I came around and now CCleaner is one of *many* cleaners/optimisers I use quite frequently
