  1. Solved: Closed my browser and tried again, it now works. Gremlins
  2. https://www.ccleaner.com/defraggler/builds Portable Defraggler will not download, the "downloading now" web page flashes for 1 second and opens https://www.ccleaner.com/ instead Is the portable version no longer available ?
  3. Trialing Recuva using portable version Using portable Recuva v1.53.1087 External portable USB HDD | drive letter "F" | NTFS | Data only capacity: 50 GB | used: 10.1 GB | Free: 39.8 GB created a TXT file in F:\#1\folder_2\folder_3\folder_4\folder_5 File name: zz_test recuva_2017-02-08.txt moved focus to another folder to ensure Windows registered the new file returned to the test folder and deleted the test file Recuva portable Drive F: Filter: zz*.txt Scan Files... ------------ Recuva did not find the file but did find an obscure, 8 year old file "ZZSMW2P6.txt" path of the "ZZSMW2P6.txt" has never existed Exported report from Recuva There is no "Users\Owner" folder on F:\ nor has there ever been F: drive is data only and has never been anything else ( I know Users\Owner etc is in C:\ drive What am I doing wrong, the C:\ ... F:\ drives mix up is very confusing. ? - the actual first folder on F: is F:\#1 ... I wonder if my first folder with hash in the name is part of the problem I would appreciate any help , thank you
  4. For the past >20 years I have used a free defrag tool that is now no longer supported. Recently I acquired a new custom build (3 drives) tower AND a Lenovo laptop, both 64bit Win7 PRO So it is time to move into the 21st century. For the last 5 hours I have read all Defraggler web-pages I can find, and am impressed with the online "Documentation", I simply did not know Defraggler is so versatile and sophisticated A few questions: how many seats can I use PRO Defraggler on ? are any features in PRO, disabled in free version Defraggler's INI file Documentation page http://www.piriform.com/docs/defraggler/advanced-usage/working-with-defragglers-ini-file ... Working with Defragglers INI file - will the INI file be fully functional with portable Defraggler DisableShellExtension - ContextMenu items - will this work with portable Defraggler ? - or is the shell extension only available in the local installation version ReplaceWindowsDefrag - if Windows Disk Defragmenter is disabled will Defraggler honor my Windows setting, to not defrag? Thank you I would appreciate any guidance, thank you
  5. I have been using Palemoon for about 3 years, no lock ups ... but I agree with you about Firefox ... it has got slower and so many features are not finished.
  6. Vivaldi -- isn't it Chrome based ? Google
  7. Now that Opera has split mail and browser .. Opera-mail specs look promising but the installation process has not been a good one.
  8. Kaspersky shot themselves in the foot earlier this year (Jan-2015) I changed our AV to KIS-2015 (small office of 8 seats), but when it came to internet banking KIS would not recognise my default browser PaleMoon. Nor would it recognise any mozilla browsers (incl FireFox) for internet banking. - KIS "Safe Money" would only "play" with Internet Explorer, but then only with reduced security levels To make matters worse KIS locked up browser and email client, so we had to resort to Linux machine for browsing and mail. KIS-2015 was released in August 2014 and the bug was acknowledged in mid 2015, Moscow promised a patch in 24 hours, then days ... then I gave up. Dumped Kaspersky and went back to Bitdefender. I blew my money on Kaspersky "because I had installed it" ... another black mark. Mozilla browsers now work (under Bitdefender) but mail client is still broken ... we are still using Linux for mail
  9. Hi Hazelnut I was not aware there is v5.09, released 4 days ago - for memory updating has been a "while I am here" experience With your prompt in my "ear" downloaded CCleaner v5.09 What a pleasant surprise, a vast improvement - there will be critics because it "aint't pretty" BUT it is a step in the (IMHO) right-direction of improved visability and separation of the CCleaner window from other bland Metro themed windows. In my experience the web has a lot of critics about appearance and themes. - but appearance is so very subjective and personal taste ... or lack of it. If we can just jolly MS into fixing what is broken and ease up on the perpetual pursuit of a new appearance ... maybe I am showing my age. I want a rock solid experience, to know that CCleaner is not darting here and there leaving users absolutely frustrated and confronted with a whole new learning curve. I for one am very grateful that Piriform have taken steps to improve visibility of the CCleaner window, now I know where CCleaner starts and ends ... - I still find the flat look very boring ... but we can blame MS for that. Titlebar ... borders ... some contrasts ... I am in love Thank you Piriform for the visual improvements to CCleaner. v5.9.xxx Considering free CCleaner is FREE I believe Piriform owe us nothing, so I am pleased they have given consideration to listening to users. IMO ranting achieves nothing. Detailed suggestions are more constructive. Thank you Hazelnut for the tip-off
  10. And I thought I had nothing more to say .... The Metro look in Win10 (and w8 and w8.1) is not winning hearts for valid visual reasons. MS have been beating the "Metro" drum since W8/8.1/10 ... and developers are not exactly embracing Metro either. Metro might be suitable for phones but not for desktops and >15" laptops. - MS -- only with 4% of the hand device market -- they can hardly be the market leaders - so why is CCleaner designing their UI for 4% of the perceived market ? When I read Windows: it's always the next version by my reckoning about 10%, if that, embrace Metro and the flat look - the Windows: it's always the next version article & comments is very interesting CCleaner is still the best program of its type ... all I can do is grovel to the CCleaner powers-that-be to at least put some substantial borders on dialogs and windows ... white on white and spider-web borders (if at all) are very hard on the eyes and reduce my productivity The horse is not dead yet ... keep flogging !!
  11. I have just read Ccleaner not cleaning Palemoon cookies.sqlite ... didn't want to hijack "cartel's" thread, (Installed) Pale Moon -- my preferred browser - IE gets used about every few months, although I know IE is used in the background by MS and other 3rd party programs - IE is used by VBA to load clipboard with text too. Running portable CCleaner v5.05.5176. - no sign of "PaleMoon in Cleaner -> Applications With only one browser open, Palemoon ... CCleaner showed this alert while cleaning Applications - IE is-not/was-not open PaleMoon is no longer a fork of Firefox (for several months). Palemoon has its own GUID and is no longer associated with Firefox. - although PaleMoon is mozilla based. Q1: Are my problems the "portable" version ? Q2: PaleMoon not listed in Cleaner -> Applications ? Q1: How can I close Firefox when it is not open ? ----------- EDIT: Correction Palemoon portable has the old FireFox fork GUID Installed Palemoon has its own separate GUID Source: from various posts at Palemoon forum ----------- EDIT2: I am no a programmer nor pretend to be a PaleMoon expert ... just a FireFox Australis refugee
  12. Hi mta, Thanks for the info ... fortunately I am not paranoid ... I just don't trust anyone
  13. My last visit was 28-May-2015 ... today is 6-June-2015 - I don't remember if I have voted for a post in this thread ? ... where does "today" come from ... I have not voted for months, possibly last year 2014
