  1. Confirmed on Windows XP! I have no idea what CCleaner is trying to do here... But, I am pretty sure it is failing terribly.
  2. @Winapp2.ini I was wrong, Firefox Site Preferences doesn't delete the webappsstore.sqlite file, instead it deletes content-prefs.sqlite. That file doesn't contain the "super cookies" stuff, but it does contain the site specific zoom options and other site specific options user may have set. Websites can't use this file to track the user unlike with the webappsstore.sqlite file.
  3. It's a generic term used for stuff like Flash cookies, Silverlight cookies, Site Preferences..., that can be used to track the user on the web in the same way as normal browser cookies.
  4. I think selecting Firefox's site preferences deletes the webappsstore.sqlite file. That file mainly contains site specific zoom options and "super cookies" set by websites.
  5. Wikipedia has a pretty good explanation of why this could happen. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Temporary_Internet_Files So it's "fail-safe measure" build in IE. Now I'm not quite sure why CCleaner causes the fail-safe folders to be created, but I think it happens because CCleaner blocks the access to index.dat files when it's wiping them, thus triggering the fail-safe when the system try to gain access to the index.dat files. IE doesn't need to be running for this to happen because the index.dat files are always on use by other components of the system.
  6. You should also disable 'Cookies' and 'History'. CCleaner deletes most of the Index.dat files when these options are selected.
  7. Yes I have noticed this too, but I can't reproduce it always. For me, after logout or reboot the folders change back to their normal locations. Version 3.00.1310 is the latest version without this behavior. I think this problem happens because of the way CCleaner handles Index.dat files when cleaning cookies in newer versions.

  9. Right. Just checking the files not cleaning them. Yeah it's portable executable. No install and it shouldn't leave anything behind.
  10. I got it wrong. It's 'History' that wipes the Index.dat files not 'Cookies'. I could have sworn that it was 'Cookies' though. I used IdatScan (Index.dat Scanner) to check the files before and after. The origin website of IdatScan is long gone so it may be hard to find working download links for it.
  11. Indeed... It would seem that CCleaner wipes the Index.dat files when you have Cookies selected for cleaning and selectin 'Index.dat files' does nothing.
  12. I noticed that after you run CCleaner once it no longer detects Microsoft Management Console (Not until you run some MSC files). This happens because MS Management Console detect value is the same as the RegKey1 value: [MS Management Console] ID=2064 LangSecRef=3025 Detect=HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Microsoft Management Console\Recent File List Default=True RegKey1=HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Microsoft Management Console\Recent File List Correct detect value should be: [MS Management Console] ID=2064 LangSecRef=3025 Detect=HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Microsoft Management Console Default=True RegKey1=HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Microsoft Management Console\Recent File List This is a pretty minor bug, but it's a bug none the less.
  13. Is anyone else seeing a notable decreased in performance with Flash 10.1? I thought this new version was suppose so improve performance and add hardware acceleration for HD videos, but I'm actually getting worse performance on youtube than before.
  14. The system.dll and everything else in the $PLUGINSDIR is part of the Nullsoft Scriptable Install System that Piriform uses for it's installers. The system.dll is only used when you run the installer. It's extracted in the windows temp directory and deleted when the installer quits.
  15. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/ There. I would really like to see you report that one.
  16. You need admin rights to run the installer. The fact that you get that specific error can actually mean that the installer runs with really limited user rights and the installer doesn't even have the right to write in the temp folder.
  17. Just run the ccleaner.exe. CCleaner 2.0 is now natively portable so you don't need portable.exe anymore.
  18. I have most of the versions from v1.16.080 to v1.34.405 plus really old v1.09.056 and v1.12.063 both installers and extracted versions. If you still need them I can upload them somewhere.
  19. I guess you answered your own question. And I don't see any reason why CCleaner should support programs in alpha/beta stage.
  20. Try booting to Recovery Console. Most likely Recovery Console isn't installed on your disk so you need to boot it from the Windows XP CD, but if it is installed you can boot it from the same menu as safe mode. In Recovery Console you need to "login" to your windows installation with your administrator password. Once you get in to Recovery Console run "CHKDSK /p". If CHKDSK finds problems and fixes them, you're in luck. More on Recovery Console: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314058
  21. http://www.f-secure.com/weblog/archives/00001336.html The blog entry has a screen shot of the hacked forum. First Avast now F-Secure... Whose next?
  22. Man the malware situation is starting to look really really bad.
  23. Those lists are identical... lol @cutie_pyie Piriform didn't just made up those codes. Those codes are Locale Identifiers (LCID).
  24. And for others this is the list of lang codes TwistedMetal made for 1.x lang files: 1033 English 1031 Deutsch 1036 Fran?ais 1034 Espa?ol 1040 Italiano 2070 Portugu?s 1046 Portugu?s (do Brasil) 1043 Nederlands 1110 Galego 1027 Catal? 1053 Svenska 1044 Norwegian 1035 Suomi 1030 Dansk 1029 Cesky 1032 Greek 1055 T?rk?e 1049 Russian 1048 Romana 1045 Polski 1038 Magyar 1063 Lietuviu 1052 Albanian 1025 Arabic 1037 Hebrew 1041 Japanese 1028 Chinese (Traditional) 2052 Chinese (Simplified) 1042 Korean 3098 Serbian Cyrillic 2074 Serbian Latin 1051 Slovensky 1071 Macedonian 5146 Bosanski 1026 Bulgarian
  25. To registry by default, which isn't very convenient for portable applications. You should set the option "Save all settings to INI file" on, from CCleaner options. That way the setting are saved on your USB flash drive and not on the host machine.
