  1. Windows 7


    Tried to uninstall CC today (not because of new UI).

    I noticed that this new version did not show up in Revo Uninstaller. Thinking that was odd so I checked Control Panel and it was there. I decided to uninstall/reinstall; but going through Control Panel it only removes the Control Panel entry. 

    CC remains fully installed and functioning. Nothing else has happened.


    IF this is something as a result of the new version of CC, then that really pisses me off. BTW, I have been a CC user almost since it was first introduced, and have been happy and encouraged others to use it. But I fully expect any program I use to allow me to remove it without problem.


    Please advise.



  2. 1. Is it possible to schedule just freespace defrag?


    2. I now have DF setup to move the large files with cetain extensions (movies) to the end of the drive: assuming that means to the innermost edge of the platter(s). That seems to work great when I actually run the GUI (defraggler.exe); but I think when I run with the scheduler (df.exe) it is placing those files back to where they are contiguous with the other files. I will test this further this weekend to make sure I am not imagining it.


    Another part of my question about the movement of large files, is it possible to set DF so that "large" files can mean more than one size? What I mean by that is there a possible way to move say movie files that are 100MB or larger, and set it to move large .mdb datebase files that are say 50MB or larger. Hope I'm making sense here.


    3. Final question is really not about DF at all, but I question I have about the MFT. I have noticed on my secondary drive that it has two $MFT listed. This drive has fairly large files, but the total number of files is not that many. I've searched to see if there should be more than one MFT but have come up empty.


    Thanks for advise.

  3. I don't know about IE8, but I feel like it'd have something to do with index.dat. Try manually deselecting all of the IE options in CCleaner, and checking them one at a time and running CCleaner until the behavior is recreated.


    Thanks, it is the Temp Internet Files being checked in CCleaner that is removing the favicons. So next question is does anyone know of a way to still clean the temp files w/o losing the favicons? Have not tried any of this with Firefox yet.



  4. Have used CCleaner for several years now, very happy with it. Don't really know if this is CCleaner related or not.

    Have IE8 and CCleaner 3.14.1616 and it "seems" since updating CC that I am now losing most, but not all of my favicons. Did a search on the forum but most posts related to favicon are very dated.

    Any idea if this is related to CC, and if so is there a trick to allow me to keep the favicons? I know reloading the page brings them back.



    Thanks, and Happy New Year

  5. "Touches" can mean two things in this question


    CCleaner Portable, it is true, writes none of it's own entries to a machine on which it is run


    Yes, Ccleaner Portable DOES still remove certain registry entries if a particular check box removes a reg entry

    for example

    [Adobe Reader 9.0]
    Detect=HKCU\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\9.0
    RegKey1=HKCU\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\9.0\AVGeneral\cRecentFiles

    will still remove HKCU\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\9.0\AVGeneral\cRecentFiles if run from a portable build.


    So in your example what CCleaner portable is doing is removing Recently Opened Files from Adobe or Foxit or Office, whatever is checked, and leaving an empty registry entry; am I correct? Just doing its job for the items I have checked.

    Hope I'm reading the example correct, so far with the CCleaner I have installed on my computers it has never corrupted anything.

  6. Some of their Apps never touch the registry,

    Some make extensive use of the registry and clean up after use - unless the App crashes.


    Portable CC never touches the registry.


    Before I upgrade CC I always unzip the latest to another folder,

    and I run and Analyse both of them side by side and compare results.

    They do not interact during analysis.


    Were I to launch the CLEAN action simultaneously then they might conflict,

    but I hope to stave of senility for a few more years.



    I'm probably at the senior senility stage; BUT I think I can avoid launching them both at once. My main interest with the portable install is to help out friends who ask for assistance on their computers, could show them what it does and insist they do a local install of it and use it.


    Thanks for the replies.

  7. CCleaner Portable is all self-contained in the folder where you run it from since it has a portable.dat file which tells it it's the portable version, and it only uses settings from ccleaner.ini.


    So if I run the portable version on a machine with a local install of CC I don't have to worry with it changing the ccleaner.ini on that machine?



  8. Hi all, two things I want to find out before playing around with the portable CCleaner.


    1. If I use a portable install of CCleaner on a computer that has CCleaner installed on its hard drive, will running the portable version mess with the .ini or any other settings of the install on the host machine?

    I recall reading something about that on the PortableApps forums.


    2. Reading this forum post: Does portable CCleaner need to access the registry on the host machine at all?

  9. Anyone out there have new enough hardware to be using USB 3.0?

    I would like to hear real users experience with external hard drives and systems/motherboards that make use of the new standard. I read that speed is much faster, but often those are tests w/o the overhead/load that is in use with real users.



  10. For yahoo toolbar remove HKCurrentUser\Software\Yahoo\Companion that's the key that CCLeaner uses to dectect if Yahoo is installed


    For AVG, depended on what version you had Look for







    Thanks so much, got rid of Yahoo toolbar and will do AVG tommorrow.

    Again I think community forums are the best source of reliable information.

  11. Remove the registry entries for those, Revo mustn't have done it properly.



    [opinion]Microsoft Security Essentials is amazing[fact], it recently won the VB100 award.



    Well I have gone into regedit and removed every entry I could find for YahooToolbar and did a reboot, but it still shows up in CCleaner (haven't done anything for AVG yet). Also did a scan with Glary Registry tool and removed what was listed as invalid entries.


    Do I need to uninstall/reinstall CCleaner?


    Thanks for the words about Security Essentials; I liked AVG, but seemed to be a resource hog.

  12. I have uninstalled with Revo the Yahoo Toolbar and also AVG virus software; but both still show up under the Applications tab in CCleaner. How do I go about removing those entries?





    BTW; anyone have opinions as to MS Security Essentials vs. AVG Free, with respect to catching the bad stuff? (I'll post in different sub-forum if this is wrong place).

  13. Does Defraggler create a log file after a defrag telling what files did not get completely defragged etc, like what PerfectDisk does?


    If not this is really needed.


    Please let me know if I am just overlooking this.



  14. 1. Minimize to system tray (PLEASE)


    2.Registry Defrag: Add an item in the list that shows the drives to defrag that lets you also defrag the registry upon reboot. Also add an option to automatically defrag the registry and auto-reboot after defragmentation of the selected drive is complete.


    3.Background Defrag (like AutoDefrag in Smart Defrag, this is one really nice feature of theirs); and it could be improved upon by allowing specific directories/folders to be chosen for the background defrag. This would prove very helpful for anyone with large database files(MySQL. etc.)

  16. Isn't CCleaner supposed to remove items typed into the IE7 search window? I have set Google as my search engine.

    I always thought CC did remove any entry that was there, and now I find that it does not.

    Any setting I need to look at?



  17. Not by default as CC only cleans known temp files on the system drive (which I assume is C). You can of course include files and folders to be cleaned, but CC will wipe the entire folder irrespective of the contents.


    Is it possible to use a USB install of CCleaner and have it point to the 2nd or 3rd hard drive of a machine?

  18. It will auto resize, but everyone will be able to see it.


    Well thanks TM, nice to know on inserting an image :rolleyes:

    But do you have any ideas on how to fix what my original question asks?

    Can I add something to either the winapp or winreg files that will force CCleaner to ignore the two registry keys that I don't want to delete when I clean?



  19. Bump :rolleyes:


    I have tried to edit my post and insert a screen print of CCleaner after I scan for ISSUES, but I was unable to figure out how to get it sized properly so anyone could see it.


    But basically if there is some way for me to go into CCleaner and setup an exclusion for these two reg files, then my problem would be solved. I really do want to keep CCleaner doing its scan on reboot.



  20. I installed what seems to be a really nice application called Note-It; kind of a post-it note program.

    But I have issues with CCleaner deleting registry entries it must need. Ace Utilities will also find these "bad" registry entries.


    Below is an e-mail I just sent to the develop of Note-It and that should fairly well explain what I am running into. The developer of Note-It just sent me an e-mail and said he uses CCleaner and his product w/o issue. Any ideas? This is the e-mail I sent him:


    I have run into an issue with Note-IT and system program I use regularly named CCleaner; removes temp files and bad registry entries.


    Note-It installs registry keys named Software\Home in both the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and in HKEY_CURRENT_USER


    CCleaner and Ace Utilities both find this as an Obsolete Key and delete it. When those are removed I cannot open any of my saved Note-It files.


    I have re-installed Note-It several times and it took me a while to track it down. I can't do w/o CCleaner and I find no way to have CCleaner exclude those files.


    Is there any way in CCleaner to exclude these two files from being deleted when I have CC set to run on boot? (an excludes list)




  21. Welcome to the forums john ;)

    I wouldn't recommend doing it but it can be done for the majority of the files.

    The easiest way would be to add custom folders but again, I WOULDN'T RECOMMEND IT!

    In a couple of months, a Ccleaner v 2.0 will be released, re-designed from the ground up!

    Hopefully this will allow cleaning multiple profiles but I can't say for sure..




    Something similar I am wondering about, if I have multiple hard drives, some with partitions, can one

    instance of ccleaner work across those drives and partitions?



  22. that seems like alot of work just to save an icon!

    the only other thing i could suggest would be FireFox.

    13 reasons why to use it

    thats just my opinion however.



    Yes I have to agree, it is more work than I want to devote to saving the icon. As small a file as these are I don't understand why IE has them cached to the temp directory. I need CCleaner to EMPTY the temp folder.



    Guess I will take a look at Firefox.


    Thanks to everyone for the help.
