  1. Did you get the prompt to delete C:\recycler, and did you answer 'y' (yes) to that prompt?
  2. Hi and welcome. Please do the following (I suggest you print this out first) Open a Command Prompt window (Start > Run > Cmd) and leave it open. Close all open programs. Click Start, Run, enter taskmgr and press OK in order to bring up Task Manager. Next, go to the Processes tab and End Process on Explorer.exe. That will leave you with a blank desktop, but don't worry... Leave Task Manager open. Go back to the Command Prompt window , and type: rd /s c:\recycler in order to delete your Recycle Bin. Answer Yes when prompted to confirm deletion. NOTE: that command reads "rd (space)/s (space) c:\recycler" Go back to Task Manager, click "Shutdown" in the Menu Bar and choose "Restart". Your computer will reboot, and a new Recycle Bin will automatically be created. That ought to fix things. Good luck!
  3. Yes I agree; the number of startup locations monitored could be expanded a little Nothing wrong with you English. And thanks again for your suggestion; let's hope it will be taken into account.
  4. You're very welcome, Dennis. Glad to hear that did the trick.
  5. ... indeed, unless of course you once ticked this check box
  6. Have a look here for a possible solution.
  7. Eggzactly! : http://www.CCleaner.com/download/builds There's a clear option to opt out during setup. Also, WHY on earth do folks always expect OTHER people to work for free? You should be ecstatic that a first rate application like CCleaner is being offered as freeware in the first place. The toolbar is emphatically NOT pushed down your throat during install
  8. That's a good suggestion. CCleaner does check for example the usual Registry Run keys for orphaned startup entries, but it doesn't look at the one you referred to. Incidentally, another string value in that particular subkey is also used by Windows NT and upwards to load an application at boot: "load"="FileName.EXE" If you're still getting the error message at boot, please say so, and we'll help you get rid of it.
  9. No, I'm afraid that isn't possible. Besides, you can't simply add keys the way you edit the wininit.ini and expect that to successfully replace or modify the complex algorithms used by a registry cleaner. That's best left to the programming team... These aren't registry keys that strike me as absolutely vital to include. Take for example Shell Folders, which stores the path to the default location of special Windows folders. Now this of course commonly read by third party applications, but it is rarely written to... IMHO CCleaner's registry cleaner forte lies in the fact that, although it's relatively 'benign', it still does an outstanding job removing orphaned registry keys while producing an absolute minimum of "false positives".
  10. Hi and welcome. As it's a false positive, I suggest you submit a report to BitDefender explaining the nature of the file, and attaching it, preferably in a passworded archive so that they can correct this FP. You could also post at the BitDefender forum: http://forum.bitdefender.com/ Good luck!
  11. I've changed a couple of things. Out: BoClean Nod32 Ghost Security Suite HIPS (AppDefend/RegDefend) Look 'n' Stop firewall Replaced by: Antivir Premium Online Armor Security Suite On demand: Ad-Aware Superantispyware Malwarebytes Anti-Malware TrojanHunter And SpywareBlaster Firefox w. AdBlock Plus and NoScript I also hold licenses to Sunbelt's Counterspy and some other stuff, but you can't have everything installed...
  12. Hi Phil, There's no difference between "/Auto" and manually pressing "Run Cleaner" in CCleaner, at least in that respect. Both will clean those locations you've set previously.
  13. Alright then: Audi A4 2006 Sedan, top speed prolly somewhere around 210 km/h
  14. That's good to hear, glad we were able to help.
  15. In that case you do need to repair the file assocation for regfiles. Download the regfile association fix on the web page Hazelnut linked to in her reply. It's a zip file; unzip so you'll end up with the xp_regfile.reg file inside. Fire up the Registry editor: Start > Run > Regedit. Go to the File Menu > Import, then browse to the xp_regfile.reg you just extracted, and press 'open'. Do you get a prompt that the information has been successfully entered in the registry? If so, try double-clicking the CCleaner regfile once again. You should now get a prompt. Incidentally, the 'merge' option *might* still be missing, but double-clicking ought to work now. If necessary, we can add the 'merge' option afterwards If you do this as explained, there's nothing to fear; all you're doing is restoring the default Windows value data .
  16. Hi Larry, as I said before, try double-clicking the file; do you get a prompt? The absence of a 'merge' context menu entry doesn't necessarily mean your reg file association is toast.
  17. Indeed! I switched to Online Armor (Security Suite) myself a short while ago, having it replace both my Look'n'Stop firewall and Ghost Security Suite HIPS. Well thought out program, very happy with it.
  18. You're very welcome, Maureen. Glad we were able to help. Now don't be a stranger Happy surfing!
  19. Even faster (I should have thought of this before...): Go to Start > Run, and type: regsvr32 sendmail.dll ... then press Enter. Registering this dll will automatically restore your shortcut.
  20. You could try this: Go to Start > Run > type sendto and press Enter Your SendTo folder will open. In the SendTo folder's Menu bar go to File > New > Text document Call the new textfile Mail Recipient.mapimail (WITHOUT the '.txt' extention!) When renaming it you'll get a warning that renaming the file may render it unusable; ignore that warning. If performed correctly you should now again have the 'Email Recipient' context menu option available
  21. Did you try the instructions under What if this does not work to manually delete the Norton Protected Bin? That will remove it including all contents; after a reboot an empty bin will automatically be created.
  22. Hi and welcome The "Norton Protected Recycle Bin" is hidden from Windows API, the purpose being precisely that the contents BE protected from accidental deletion, so CCleaner will in all likelihood not be able to empty it. If you don't care for it, you can disable this feature, or alternatively, occasionally empty it manually from within NProtect's options. Here's some reading: Emptying the Norton Protected Recycle Bin Disabling the Norton Protected Recycle Bin
  23. Also, try double-clicking the regfile; does that work for you?
