  1. It is still the same as the current taskbar, MS just got rid of the text. 'Pinning' a program to the taskbar just adds it to a slightly modified Quick Launch. Also, the notification area is (finally) controllable. No, I'm not a MS fanboy. I'm just tired of people bashing Vista/MS; Vista isn't that bad, and Win7 will be what Vista was meant to be. In fact, as I type this I am exploring Win7 Pre-Beta on a 4 year old Dell Inspiron 1000 (Intel Celeron 2.2GHz, 512mb RAM).
  2. Yes, both CCleaner and Defraggler are Vista 64 bit compatible. CCleaner OS Compatibility Defraggler OS Compatibility (scroll down to System Requirements)
  3. Yes, English is embedded into CCleaner.exe
  4. CC always closes automatically with the /AUTO switch.
  5. It should be an easy feature to add. XP + Vista (maybe earlier aswell): rundll32.exe powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState Hibernate Vista Only: shutdown /h
  6. @Casey44 Ignore my vLite recommendation, it's simply to much work. @Disk4mat This isn't hotfix uninstallers, this is Windows Side-by-Side, and it should not be messed with. @Davey Thanks for the fix. Yeah, I should know better than to assume someone could handle vLite without knowledge of their skills. Plus, it really becomes a large time commitment that could be better used working to buy a dedicated backup drive finding the "PC Fairy". I was lucky enough for the "PC Fairy" to leave me an abandoned SATA storage array in the "this junk needs recycled"-bin in the campus IT depa
  7. *cough*I'm a guy*cough* I doubt MS will do much about this, it is a feature that was first introduced in XP. XP's version never really did much so with the new security restrictions of Vista it allows MS to enforce WinSxS. This all may sound stupid, but for people like me that help manage several dozens of computers (a few 98s, a few dozen 2Ks, XPs, 2K3s, Vistas) or those that have been a computer tinkerer for a while, this feature ends the aptly-named DLLHell problems. I did some research on removing/disabling WinSxS and it turns out there is a way. However, I warn that it is VERY uns
  8. It's good to see a person that takes their time researching programs! To answer your questions: How is it paid for? -Small adds on the website/forums (I think, our company firewall blocks most ads.) -Yahoo Toolbar as an optional install with the Full installer (Download the Slim or Portable from here to not have it) -Paypal donations Notable Supporters? I can't think on any but check these: List on CCleaner homepage. Google search "CCleaner Review" Registry Cleaner? CCleaner's Registry cleaner is not as risky as most others. CCleaner generally only shows entries that are saf
  9. Those are your Unsorted Bookmarks, they are created when you bookmark a site and select the folder option "Unsorted Bookmarks". CCleaner will never clean or touch your bookmarks intentionally. See here for more info.
  10. That is the FireFox 3 'AwesomeBar'. It lists your history as well as your bookmarks, so CCleaner cleans the history but leaves the bookmarks. (You don't want it erasing your bookmarks!) So, CCleaner is working correctly.
  11. I'm sure this can be narrowed down to one folder. C:\Windows\winsxs\ That is the folder that keeps growing and growing. Currently mine is pushing 8GB. However, it is essential to Vista's operation so DO NOT mess with it. At this time there is no way, that I know of, to reduce the size of this folder. Sorry.
  12. That sounds correct, but make sure you don't place the files in %temp% because then CCleaner may try to clean itself!
  13. I believe I understand your question. The best way that I see to achieve this would be to override the embedded cleaning list (WinApp.ini and WinSys.ini) with slightly modified external files (WinApp1.ini and WinSys1.ini). To do this there are a few simple steps: 1. Obtain copies of the embedded files. Sometimes they will be posted here, but since they haven't I will attach them to this post. 2. Unzip the files to the CCleaner directory. 3. Delete WinReg.ini (needed only for Registry Integrity scan), and rename WinApp.ini and WinSys.ini to WinApp1.ini and WinSys1.ini respectively. 4.
  14. There is no difference between the functionality of the Full version and the Portable version. The Full download includes Yahoo Toolbar, the Portable download does not. The Portable download includes a small file that forces CCleaner to store it's settings in an ini, the Full download does not. People who want CCleaner installed tend to download the Slim version which is smaller because it doesn't contain Yahoo Toolbar, instead of the Full version.
  15. No, it was never able to clean while FF was open.
  16. The only difference between the two is that Slim doesn't include Yahoo Toolbar. Contrary to popular belief, it DOES include more than just English. To download Slim, go to the Downloads page and click the link 'Other Builds". This opens the page with Slim. OR Click Here
  17. Firefox 3 support was added 2 releases ago.
  18. Davey remove his email from your quote. Mikel, I suggest you run an Antivirus/Antispyware scan ASAP. (Safe mode may be required.) CCleaner most likely did not do this, but it may have triggered some dormant malware somehow.
  19. Nobody really wants the YTB, but that is one of the ways Piriform gets money to provide free software. If they are getting money for distributing YTB with Recuva, but not actually distributing it with Recuva, then Yahoo would have grounds to cut funding. That is why the Full installer is bigger. Did you download the Full installer from the Recuva builds page? The page says it is only 819kb, but if you click the link and download it you will see that it is 2.18mb (due to YTB being included). I don't mean to be a pain in the neck. I'm just trying to get the correct information out there.
  20. Then why does the FileHippo version not have the Yahoo Toolbar? I also noticed the Recuva download page and Builds page have the wrong size listed for the Full version.
  21. Found the reason: FileHippo version = Slim Version (w/o Yahoo). Alternative Download = Full Version (w/ Yahoo). So, FileHippo has the Slim Version of Recuva, but the Full Version of CCleaner. Also, on the Recuva download page and the Builds page, the size of the Full Version is listed incorrectly.
  22. Restore bookmark backup: Start > Run Type in (Without quotes): "%appdata%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\" Click OK Click on the folder, something similar to "q6avd9bw.default" Rename 'bookmarks.bak" to "bookmarks.html" If there is no "bookmarks.bak": Open the "bookmarkbackups" folder Copy the most recent backup to the previous folder and rename to "bookmarks.html" That should get back most, if not all, of your bookmarks. I've heard of this happening to others before, but not very often.
  23. True, but no matter what it does specifically to Windows, there would still be junk to clean.
  24. Yes, there is no reason why it would not.

    CCleaner 3.x?

    FireFox 4.0?? Last I checked, v3 isn't even final yet! I doubt they will jump to CC 3.x because of browsers alone. Lately updates have been fixes and improving secure deletion, so we will probably see more of the same, but we can only speculate without a team member.
