  1. Good to see nearly 2 months on that Piriform doesn't see fit to respond or even acknowledge the problem, nor any real discussion about the issue from the general user base. It's a sad state of affairs when posts and threads need to be censored by overzealous moderators, so as to ensure other, more capable programs, are not directly mentioned. God forbid users are made aware of more functional alternatives. I think the simple take away here is that Piriform aren't interested in improving their software with respect to competing against other offerings on the market.
  2. "64-bit machine" is completely valid, as there were CPU's back in the day that were not 64-bit compliant (i.e. old Pentium's). Yes, you're right, it is a nit pick, a completely incorrect one.
  3. Are you talking about the after defrag performance analysis? I would completely ignore it because it's totally off. It reports my Western Digital Black as getting a couple KB per second total performance, and my Samsung 951 NVME as getting less than 120MB/s, when it benches over 1.5GB/s in any other software. The performance analysis is completely and utterly wrong in every way. I'm glad your time is so valuable. Thanks for letting us know.
  4. I don't think removing the names of competing software is fair. You don't see Lenovo deleting posts that mention Dell or HP, nor do you Sony removing threads about LG or Samsung TV's on their forums. I'm using them as examples so that Piriform might look further into the issue. Defraggler is a free piece of software, and compared to "COMPETING SOFTWARE", it's much cheaper, therefore it's not really a threat to mention them. Regardless i doubt my post will make any difference, but either way it's poor form. 1. The software should be smart enough to do this. 2. I don't want to
  5. If the HDD is not being detected by either Windows nor your BIOS then it's not a good sign. Could be an issue with the PCB failing to even power up and identify itself. Defragging a large amount of data is very taxing on the HDD and can bring about failure if a drive is already nearing death. Always keep that in mind when it comes to defragging HDD's that won't see a benefit from increased seek/read performance (i.e. backup drives that aren't often accessed). In your case that's not really applicable since you were defragging your games HDD, but keep it in mind for future HDD's. Usual
  6. Hi all, Long time supporter of Piriform. Even bought their software a little while back, and donated back in the day when the software used to be 100% free. I've tried for a long while to like Defraggler but i'm running into issues, namely two main issues: Defrag logic and low utilisation. First and foremost the defragging engine seems to be very slow despite using next to no resources. Right now it's defragging my games HDD (7200RPM mechanical HDD), and it has taken hours, and there are several more hours to go, but it's currently using next to no CPU, and only 1-5% HDD (screen
  7. Same issue, defragging is taking excessively long, with 1-5% HDD usage and virtually no CPU or RAM utilisation.
  8. Same problem. One thing to mention though, it managed to detect some APK's i had in a user created folder and was able to delete those during the clean, but the general "cache" is not cleaned. Results: Cleaned: Analysing again a few seconds later:
  9. Well it's a worthy donation anyway. It's good to support free, clean software. I've donated a few times myself. Although hopefully Piriform will offer you something in this situation (if you're looking for a refund or whatever)

    Memory issue

    Congratulations Piriform! Bug solved in the 1.18.185 update!
  11. Yeah, ccleaner would be a lot easier if it had some sort of bootstrapper. Something that would allow it to update itself without having to manually download installers.

    Speccy crash

    v1.00.108 ran fine, however v1.00.125 crashes during the analyzing phase. The crash occurs while analyzing CPU, RAM, motherboard, and hard drives. Operating system, graphics, optical drives and audio all display fine. Speccy creates a dump file upon crashing, however that file is 120MB. 30MB if compressed with WinRAR. I'm willing to upload it if it'll be useful. - Windows 7 x64 - ASUS P5E motherboard - Core2Quad Q9550 @ 3.6GHz - EVGA GTX285 - Corsair 8GB DDR2-800MHz RAM - 3x1TB WD HDD, 2x400GB RAID0
  13. Yup, same in Windows 7. BTW you CAN delete IE, depending on the version of Windows you're using. It'll simply remove all traces of the iexplore.exe program so that you never have to physically deal with it again (aside from programs using the rendering engine).

    Index.dat files are a part of internet explorer and are generated automatically. They are small active databases that contain mostly trash data, but it can also store search history such as autocomplete.
  15. Internet Explorer is a core part of Windows. Developers usually use the IE rendering engine to display websites from within their native applications. For instance, Steam uses the IE rendering engine to display websites from within the Steam browser. Other programs like XFIRE, Yahoo Messenger, AOL messenger, and so on, use the IE engine to display advertisements from within their messenger windows. A lot of programs rely on the IE rendering engine in some way or another, and as a result, you'll always end up with IE cookies, temp files, and so on. You can't really prevent i
