  1. I am on windows xpsp3, and had used "Hotfix uninstallers" cleaning feature before. Recently I did some system update, then used the new CCleaner, but the "Hotfix uninstallers" option is gone. I reverted to version 5.46 and found the option again.

    And after done the cleaning with ccleaner 5.46, I found that there are still those directories under \windows:

    $968930Uinstall_KB968930$ (strange name, with only two files in it: PSCustomSetupUtil.exe, PSSetupNativeUtils.exe)

    I wonder whether they belong to "Hotfix uninstallers" or not.


  2. My objective is not quite the same. I use Sandboxie or any virtualization software when I try something suspicious, or something concerning security. I use CCleaner to get free space by system cleaning. I use Defragger to promote hard disk performance. My original suggestion is for fragmented files found by Defragger, which need cleaning instead of defraging, and cannot covered by CCleaner. Virtualization is indeed another story.

  3. Thanks for your suggestion. Yes, files that being created regularly could be added to CCleaner, but those random, temporary files that cannot be anticipated, just be awared of when seen, as in Defraggler, is what I am talking about. Uninstaller cannot cover all these files either. "Open containing folder" is a good command, yet most of times I just want a quick delete.

  4. whoa, defrag programs should only move files.

    I don't think they should start cleaning your PC, even if that is under user control.

    DF allows you to right click that file in the file list and Open Containing Folder, then you can delete it.

    No need to bind your hands so tightly; and if so, why should it ask whether to dump recycle bin at start?


    can't this be done now in CC from the Windows tab, Windows Explorer section, by ticking Recent Documents, Other Explorer MRU's ?


    I thought so too, but No, which is odd

  6. Question, does this error break the ability of Windows System Restore to actually restore the system to a previous Restore Point.


    If it cannot restore then you have nothing to lose by purging ALL Restore Points via Superfast's suggestion.


    Yes, it can restore. I have restored to a previous restore point. But I want to reserve another older restore point.

  7. I don't know if my understanding of restore points is correct: the restore points are linked like a chain according to the sequence of snapshot, not the time of snapshot. But CCleaner seems sort them by date, and don't let me delete a previous restore point which created at wrong (future) system clock, now always recognized as the most recent. Could it be solved?
