  1. Nice guide, I learned a few new things. That's always good, after reading the guide I noticed I didn't have Downloaded Installations in the forums. I added it months ago, but I must have missed it when I redid some stuff. I added it in the Add a program to winapp2.ini.

    Netscape 8

    I don't see how, I got tons of browsers installed on my test system, and all of them are working fine.
  3. To add Netscape 8, it would require programming on MrG's part. It's doing like exactly like Firefox is now... C:\Documents and Settings\NAME\Application Data\Netscape\NSB\Profiles\ppxzd30m.default

    What the ?

    Has something to do with the Ads. You will also see Archive.org too.

  6. Same here, sometimes automatic update is slower than the actually Windows Update site on releasing updates.
  7. 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.
  8. 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++.
  9. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. This may not be 100% accurate... Tools AutoCorrect Options... Customize... Options... Recent File List
  14. It's rare, but it does happen that you blank entries. I have had 3 of them before, just delete them.
  15. 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
  16. 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.
  17. I don't know what CCleaner cleans exactly, but it does do a good job cleaning Firefox.

  19. 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!
  20. 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...
  21. Check here http://forum.CCleaner.com/index.php?showtopic=1110
  22. 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).
  23. Well, Happy Birthday. I got until the 27th before I am 25.
