  1. Same here, sometimes automatic update is slower than the actually Windows Update site on releasing updates.
  2. Ok, I will reply. No bumping please... I don't really see a need in it, I only 3 icons in quick launch. I doubt many people have so many they don't know what they have and don't have on it.
  3. All that matters is my vote anyways. From what I understand (he said this before). It's mainly written in VB, but parts are written in C++.
  4. IE has a built-in FTP client, but I recommend FlashFXP. You will to connect to the ftp, example ftp://ftp.CCleaner.com with a user name and password.

    I have tried Opera 8 beta. I still like Firefox better.
  6. Hey steve1368 and everyone who reads this, You may not like what I have to say, but it's my opinion from experience. Other people's may be different. But here goes... First off, I recommend not using TuneUp 2004, I use to use it. But, I stopped for a few reasons. #1. I don't know what exactly it is fixing and so on... #2. You can find other programs that will do a better job and you actually know what they do. #3. Before I knew any better, I installed tweak programs and maintaince programs like TuneUp 2004, and it actually slowed down my system. I stop using all tweak programs (reformatted) and my system has been stable for a long time and not single error. #4. Most programs do pointless tweaks that doesn't even effect Windows or performance. As for Registry Cleaners... No registry program is the same, some clean pointless entries and some actually clean really good. I have only found 1 registry program I like, Registry Mechanic is by far the best one I have ever used (I have tried tons of them). RegscrubXP is a joke, yes a joke. It's pointless, it finds tons of entries with "null" values. Sure you can clean them, but Windows will just rebuild them after every reboot or when you start the program. Alot of registry cleaners will do that to make it look like it's actually cleaning, but it's pointless, a waste of time, and it can frag your registry. I recommend this... (This is what I do when I want to create a System Restore/Backup). Run CCleaner and fix all issues, then run Registry Mechanic, then run NTREGOPT, and then Yes to reboot. Then run a defrag program (Windows or whatever, I use O&O Defrag), then run Page Defragmenter, and then reboot. Now, run System Restore, and create a new restore point. Then run ERUNT if you want to backup your registry. I then use Disk Cleanup and clear all but my recent restore point (to save space). You are now done. I hope this will help some.
  7. https://addons.mozilla.org/extensions/morei...ication=firefox Another one of them must have Extensions for Firefox. If, you use the scroll wheel. Scrolls the document smoothly when scrolling the mouse wheel Basically an enhanced and configurable version of the built in smooth-scroll. Uses some unique algorithms for smoothness and adaptive behaviour (scrolls fast or slow according to the "intention" of the user). Allows to read long web pages easily. You can actually read WHILE scrolling. Kind of like the credits at the end of a movie, but controlled by scrolling the mouse wheel. Works with text-boxes and drop-down boxes too. This version Exposes more configuration options.
  8. This may not be 100% accurate... Tools AutoCorrect Options... Customize... Options... Recent File List
  9. It's rare, but it does happen that you blank entries. I have had 3 of them before, just delete them.
  10. Just custom settings and recent file list. Open winapp.ini... If you have Office XP. Delete: RegKey8=HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\10.0\Word\Data|Settings RegKey9=HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\10.0\Access\Settings If you have Office 2003 Delete: RegKey10=HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Word\Data|Settings
  11. This will happen if you use custom settings or custom options, and so on. CCleaner cleans everything in Options. Recent File list, custom settings, and so on. You can't cleaer the Recent File List without clearing all of the settings.
  12. I don't know what CCleaner cleans exactly, but it does do a good job cleaning Firefox.

  14. Star Wars III is totally awesome, everything in it is awesome. I watched the 3:15am showing, it's 6:47am right now, and I have to be at work 8am. Not to mention I am going on 5 hours of sleep. I don't want to work today. WATCH THE MOVIE!
  15. Well, there is a way to run it on a portable device using XP. A forum user found a way, I know it too. But, not sure on what MrG thanks of this...
  16. Check here http://forum.CCleaner.com/index.php?showtopic=1110
  17. NoScript 1.0.2 Extra protection for your Firefox: NoScript allows JavaScript execution only for trusted domains of your choice (e.g. your home-banking web site). This whitelist based pre-emptive script blocking approach prevents exploitation of security vulnerabilities (known and even unknown!) with no loss of functionality... Experts will agree: Firefox is really safer with NoScript ;-) https://addons.mozilla.org/extensions/morei...ication=firefox I actually found this extension to be really good and real easy to use. It also blocks java script ads that other popup blockers can't (Main reason I got it).
  18. Well, Happy Birthday. I got until the 27th before I am 25.
  19. Actually, no. The problem with open recent list in Office can not be resolved unless it removes custom settings too. Which in that case, it's not worth cleaning. I checked out other cleaning programs too and they did the samething CCleaner did. Delete custom settings in order to clear the open recent list.
  20. I use WinRAR myself and I love it.
  21. Not as of yet. It's used on your main drive.
  22. The way Issues is designed you can't export it to a text file. Because it has columns in it. CCleaner should run just fine on a laptop.
  23. New in this version: -Improved updating (and fixes for updating issues some users experienced with previous versions) -Improved support for users with large fonts / DPI settings -Various cosmetic fixes/improvements -Further optimizations to certain parts of the program -And lots of other bug fixes and requested tweaks This 3.4 release provides bug fixes and enhanced performance. Various issues people have been having with previous releases should be fixed. NEW UPDATING OPTIONS IN SPYWAREBLASTER 3.x SpywareBlaster still offers the built-in Check for Updates feature. This feature is completely free and allows you to keep up-to-date by clicking on a button in the SpywareBlaster interface. SpywareBlaster 3.4 now offers SpywareBlaster AutoUpdate - a brand-new updating solution. Just set it up, and AutoUpdate will check at every system boot for the latest updates and enable the newest protection (other options are available). As much as we would like to provide auto-updating functionality for free, bandwidth costs are simply too great to make it feasible. AutoUpdate functionality is $9.95 (US) per year, which helps to cover the bandwidth costs. The Check for Updates function remains completely free, as does SpywareBlaster. You only need to pay if you wish to have the extra convenience of AutoUpdate. ------------ Upgrading Instructions from Older Versions: It is recommended that you uninstall your current version of SpywareBlaster before installing the new version. To do this: 1.) Open SpywareBlaster and press the "Disable All Protection" link under "Quick Tasks". 2.) Close SpywareBlaster. 3.) Go to Add/Remove Programs and uninstall the entry named "SpywareBlaster v3.3" 4.) Download the latest SpywareBlaster installer from the link above and run it. 5.) Enjoy the new version of SpywareBlaster!
