    CCleaner 2.0

    Language please. Thank you!
  2. Actually, I donated $20. But, that's not the reason. Me and MrG talk.
  3. It will be out sooner than you think!

    CCleaner 2.0

    A very long time from now. We are only at 1.32.
  5. As long as you don't sell the product or CD, you can do with it as you please!
  6. Currently, you will have to talk to MrG. A form is being created so you can submit different languages.
  7. It's from AOL. What good has ever come from AOL?
  8. That entry cleans all. You will have to remove a line if you don't want to clean something. Selecting what to clean with check boxes is CCleaner programming. Nothing us users can do about that.

  10. relatively mature? I know you aren't talking about yourself again!
  11. I installed EasyCleaner and I will say this... I don't like it and I don't recommend it. #1. It doesn't clean much at all. Mainly just default Windows stuff. IE, Recently used, and so on. #2. Another scan hard drive for useless files. Removes backups and so on. I DO NOT RECOMMEND DOING THAT! #3. I let it scan the registry, I do not like the list it came up with. A few listings seems like it could possibly cause errors and some will just remake themselves (no point in cleaning). #4. It's update with blacklists constantly. (That only doesn't sound good) #5. It doesn't support skins (Only Windows Default)
  12. I have used many and I found eTrust to be the best I have used so far. Also, ClamWin is a must for a secondary scanner, as it does not have real time protection.
  13. Softpedia released Firefox real early this morning. There is no releases notes on it yet, but I have tested it on 2 pcs and it is a real release version. http://www.softpedia.com/get/Internet/Brow...fox-Final.shtml
  14. Since you asked, I downloaded it, and installed it on my test PC. #1. It says FREE, but in the help file it says it costs. The program has a time limit on it. #2. I didn't like the GUI, sorta complex, and childish background images. #3. It doesn't support as many programs as CCleaner does. #4. It has a search for junk files. (Scans your hard drive for temp files, backups, and so on...) I don't like it when programs do that, it's just asking for trouble. #5. Doesn't have that winapp2.ini support like CCleaner does. Has to be hard coded in the program (less likely on updates). #6. ADVANCED MODE: You can choose the items you wish to cleanup. An automatic backup of your registry is created each time you run Zappit. Using this mode you have access to a full range of cleanup options. Advanced Mode allows you to remove a wider range of files, folders and settings than Safe Mode. Use Caution! Zappit is a powerful cleanup tool. Files, Folders and Registry items removed with Zappit cannot be recovered. To put it shortly... It doesn't even hold a candle to CCleaner.
  15. Yep, I totally agree 100% with that statement. Give it a few days and it will be fixed. It's still more secure then IE.
  16. Post your August Desktop. If you need to someone to host the image, I recommend ImageShack.
  17. Hit Alt+Ctrl+Del, make sure firefox.exe task is not running, and if it is. Just end the task and you should be good to go.
  18. I've been using TUGZip for about a year now and I wouldn't trade it for anything.
  19. That is the official version. http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/releases/ Release Date: July 27, 2006 Oops, it got released a day early on FileHippo!
  20. This is a simple fix if Windows is not messed up. See Tarun's post.
  21. What? I don't get any thanks! I wrote the Beginner's Guide.... Oh well, I'm just glad everything worked out. hehe
  22. What Is Prefetch? Taken From Microsoft Website: Windows XP monitors the files that are used when the computer starts and when you start applications. By monitoring these files, Windows XP can prefetch them. Prefetching data is the process whereby data that is expected to be requested is read ahead into the cache. Prefetching boot files and applications decreases the time needed to start Windows XP and start applications. This information is logged and stored on your hard drive taking up space and requiring a process to be kept running monitoring which applications are being run. This has a performance impact on your PC. Disabling the Prefetch function or at least only enabling it for the Boot Files will allow you to free up some system resources and preserve some disk space. Windows XP automatically optimizes itself every three days. If you want to control your Prefetch, I recommend downloading this: http://www.majorgeeks.com/download.php?det=2495
  23. Well, this could easily turn into a flamer's thread, but here goes.... People have argured over this since the release of Windows XP, could deleting prefetch files slow down your PC? Yes and no.... Deleting system prefetch files "can" slow down your startup time, by a matter of 2-5 seconds (dear god I can't wait 5 whole seconds)... Deleting application prefetch files "can" slow down the application startup, by milliseconds (again, I have no time to wait milliseconds). I would clean Prefetch, but only ever 2 or 3 months, as it can take up disk space, and there could be old prefetch files from programs you have uninstalled. The prefetch will build back up, but it could take several reboots to do it. There has also been rumors (a few on this thread) removing the prefetch files crashed their programs. I highly doubt it, prefetch is an setting in Windows XP, and it can be disabled. So, I doubt prefetch makes that much of a difference in the operating of Windows XP. F.Y.I - Me and MrG have been talking, and he is probably going to do something different with Prefetch in CCleaner, in the next release.
  24. True story.... A couple of days ago, my laptop started to lock up every now, and then during startup. I have tried almost everything... Well I decided to say NO to WGA and guess what. It doesn't lockup anymore, I figured it was the WGA, because it would hang with starting it. Yes, I have a legal copy of XP. This laptop is only 2 weeks old.
