  1. I have tried many cleaning programs (I had Windows Washer before I found CCleaner). I found CCleaner to have the easiest and neatest GUI, plus other options (easy access to them). Plus, it's very easy to add more cleaning items yourself.


    I have been with CCleaner for over a year, I joined the team knowing CCleaner would be something big. I wasn't wrong, it's getting bigger and bigger with every new release.


    You will find in many cases freeware or open source can be better than shareware. But when it comes to productivity programs, you have to buy. Like Adobe Photoshop CS2/CS3, Flash MX, Maya 3D, and so on....


    Kaspersky is a very good anti-virus, but personal Anti-Vir is the best AV I have ever had. I have Anti-Vir PE Premium and ClamWin.

  2. Exactly! If people would just at the very minimum study the winapp2.ini file or even the winapp.ini file included with CC they'd be able to figure out how to craft their own cleaning routines.


    As for adding torrent clients like uTorrent, etc., I don't really think it would be that practical because if you have something like CC remove .torrent files you may end up with some rather serious headaches like lost downloads, etc.


    Figuring out how to make entries really isn't that hard. If I can do it, anyone can. I only know a very bit of programming (just enough for NSIS), making entries is really easy. It's just copying and pasting the directory or registry string location. You can do it all just by right clicking, the only thing that people might not get is the parameters, but I have them all listed in the Beginner's Guide in plain English.


    Some programs you just can't add (like Photoshop CS3), programs nowadays can getting more compact with their files and only using the registry when they have too. You will notice all the big software companies will store all their history, settings, options, and so on in one file. But, all the smaller independent software companies/people will store them in the registry (sometimes in an ini file). It's just easier to program that way.


    As far as torrent clients I agree with Andavari on this, I did have a torrent client in winapp2.ini, but removed it. It would clean the .torrent file, but it would clear all your part downloads or current downloads. So, I doubt I will be adding anymore torrent clients to winapp2.ini.

  4. There are things about this world, we don't know nor will ever understand. Even the greatest minds that have ever lived, believed in them (or something along them lines).


    I have seen stuff, humans aren't suppose to see. We were just teenagers and didn't know what we were doing. (VERY BAD STUFF!)


    People like to laugh, say your dumb, and crap like that. They are simple minded and don't have an open mind.


    Here is a very famous quote and it's very very true.


    "People fear what they don't understand."

  5. Actually I knew they would. This is rridgely's first attempt at web sites (I guess)...


    It's the way he/his program did it. I'm not going to go into a lot detail about it (html stuff). He designed it to look right on his screen, but not for everyone's. I was the same way when I did it at first...


    I will see if I can fix it, I will probably just have to recode the 2 pages.

  6. For all the major cities it came out today at 8pm.


    My review:


    The movie is TOTALLY UNREAL! I have never seen a movie that good in my life. Everything was flawless, CG was perfect, and you couldn't even tell it was CG. The movie is 2 hours, 23 mins, and you won't take your eyes off the screen for the entire movie. I can go and go, but I will say this. I am a big Transformer fan and a big movie critic, but...


    This is going down as the greatest movie I have ever seen.


    I was excepting a lot from this movie, but damn. It was beyond anything I could imagine.

  7. CCleaner has 2 command-line parameters:


    /AUTO - Runs the cleaner upon loading and then closes the application.


    The CCleaner /AUTO parameter can be used in and with:


    Batch files (.bat).

    Shortcuts/links such as; making one on the desktop named CCleaner (Auto).

    Via the Windows Task Scheduler.

    From within CCleaner itself which will allow it to run at every system startup and/or logon.

    This is the parameter to use in shortcuts, batch files, or in Task Scheduler (including the quotes) (three examples included):


    "C:\Program Files\CCleaner\CCleaner.exe" /AUTO

    "%ProgramFiles%\CCleaner\CCleaner.exe" /AUTO

    "C:\Progra~1\CCleaner\CCleaner.exe" /AUTO

    To make it run at every system startup do the following:


    Run CCleaner.

    Click Options->Settings, then tick:

    Run CCleaner when the computer starts

    Done, you can now close CCleaner.

    Note: This will only clean the User Profile it was enabled on.

    To automatically clean All User Profiles on Windows XP (when each individual user logs onto their user profile):


    Navigate to:

    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

    Right click and create a New Shortcut and input one of the three example parameters listed above.

    /DEBUG - Runs the program in debug mode, only recommended for advanced users.


    The command-line parameters can be useful if you don't want to hit the Close/Exit every time, or if you are having a problem, and need to find out what is crashing CCleaner.


    To do this, Right Click on the CCleaner shortcut, and then click on Properties. In Target, you should see something like this: "C:\Program Files\CCleaner\CCleaner.exe". Just add the command-line parameter at the end, it should look something like this:

    "C:\Program Files\CCleaner\CCleaner.exe" /AUTO
