  1. I appreciate your advice very much. I have downloaded the latest slim version to both computers. I haven't installed it yet, but I'm glad to know I can install it over the top and preserve my settings. Thank you. Sincerely, Libra
  2. I think I read that a new version of CCleaner was developed to work with Windows 7 SP1 (64 bit). Since I don't use the registry cleaner in CCleaner, would it be alright to continue using version 3.02.1343 or would I have problems because of SP1? Thank you. Sincerely, Libra
  3. Hi Ricky, I don't have Ccleaner installed in our XP computer, but when I want programs to be available to all users this has worked for me: Log on in admin account that installed the program. Right click the start button, select OPEN. The Start Menu folder opens. Double click Programs. Locate CCleaner, right click it and select CUT. Close the window. At desktop right click Start and select Open all Users. Double click Programs. Click EDIT, click Paste. CCleaner should appear. Close the window. Maybe this will make CCleaner available to all users. If not, you can always reverse what you did. I hope this helps. Sincerely, Libra
  4. In the above example, are you actually deleting the index.dat folders to the Recycle Bin? Or are you able to get to the contents somehow? ~~~~~~`` I haven't used CCleaner in our XP computer yet, but I've read that in order to clean the registry you have to change the limited account to an Admin. When you used "run as" it only cleaned the files of the admin account you used. I think this has more to do with how Windows works and a limited user not having the rights to remove those items. Sincerely, Libra
  5. Thank you everyone for your replies. I'm glad to hear it doesn't delete the index dat for pchealth. I haven't downloaded it yet, but I will. I guess I won't have it clean the C/Windows/Temp area. Sincerely, Libra
  6. Hi, I just installed CCleaner 1.27.260 slim on my 98se computer and it all went well (except after cleaning the Windows/Applications area) when I tried to right-click on my desktop I got the hourglass and c/a/d showed Explorer wasn't responding. I was able to reboot and everything was okay. I then scanned the registry, backed up, and fixed. I am very impressed with CCleaner! I would like to install CCleaner on our XPHomesp2 computer and have a few questions: I have read that if CC Cleaner cleans the C\Windows\PCHealth\helpCTR\offline cache index.dat, the result is that when you try to access msinfo.exe you get the Windows Help instead and can't access msinfo. Has this problem been fixed? (When I ran CC on 98, if I right-clicked on an item in analyze I got the option to "copy to txt". I didn't see any way to de-select an item in this area.) Also, on the Dell 8400 computer, in my C\Windows\Temp area, besides .tmp files, are History, Cookies, Internet Temp. File folders and many, many .mst files - and a very large Drivers folder. I manually deleted the .mst files and driver folder once and they were all recreated. These .mst files were created when the computer was built. And, about 2 months ago I deleted some files from the C/Windows/Temp and Temp.Internet Files and when I deleted them from the recycle bin my icons changed on the desktop, I couldn't reboot or shut down the computer and I ended up doing a system restore. Based on the above, is there a way for me to use CCleaner safely on the XP computer? Also, I noticed in the options a setting to not delete tmp files under 48 hours old (so if that's not checked, will it delete a file 2 hours old?) Thank you. Sincerely, Libra
