  1. For some reason you have to browse / upload your image twice before it shows and you can right click 'saveas'. Nice find Hazel.
  2. Is this text missing from (almost) all applications, browsers etc.? (I see your screenshot is the task manager without text). If so I had a similar problem after the original Creators Update back in April. The problem then was that a programme I ran (JRT) was terminating the "fontdrvhost" process and the system was unable to access linked fonts to display them, so everything that used linked fonts appeared blank. (Even notepad was blank). A shutdown and reboot solved the problem (by starting the process again). It could well be that by using the registry cleaner you have dele
  3. I was going to post about not being able to find it last week on the xmas avatar thread. I did find it in the end but it's not exactly intuitive, especially when you are used to seeing a clearly worded option in your profile or user settings. One of those cases of- if you can't find the old setting then look for some obscure new symbol and click on it to see what it does.
  4. I thought I posted this last night but it doesn't seem to have appeared. I used to have the same problem with ie history hanging for about 12-15 seconds. As I also never use ie I looked if there was anything else using the history, Right click it and analyse. (Some other Microsoft applications do use some of ie's storage locations). As the history was never being used I just unchecked it in CCleaner and have left it unchecked ever since. You can always do a right click manual analyse/clean at any time if you want to be sure that nothing else is storing stuff there.

    Festive avatars

    I've been having a look round and it seems that on many IPB (and other) forums there have been moans about the round avatars. Some love 'em, some hate 'em. It can be changed back to show square or rectangular avatars, but it's not as simple as a settings switch like it used to be in earlier versions of IPB. It appears that you now have to modify the skin CSS code from the default. Whether Admin would consider changing this is another question?
  6. Look at clearing 'saved form information' as well as saved passwords. Some sites save passwords in forms.

    Software changes and so real humans have to work out how to cope with these stupid machine limitations.

    Festive avatars

    The new forum clips avatars/profile pictures with a circular mask, which cuts off bits of all my favourite xmas ones. (The 'old' software had a rectangular mask). It even made a mess of my 'standard' avatar when I tried to put it back, and has cut the 'orbits' of the one I have put on for now. It doesn't seem to matter how much white space you have around the image, it still crops to the geometry in a rectangle and then masks that rectangle with a smaller circle. (Guess I'll have to edit my favourites in order to get them to display correctly, I see that mta has done it by puttin
  9. Yes thanks, (and thanks Admin). Even when I tried to push it by changing search pages straight away I only managed to trigger it the once.
  10. Apparently the deleting of attachments is now another usergroup setting (similar to the flood control issue). It seems most usergroups have not been given permission to delete their own attachments. Unless the attachment storage limits are increased (storage is cheap these days) regular contributors are soon going to lose the ability to attach anything because their attachment quota will be full.
  11. Love it too. I've not got a council house yet, but I'm working on it. Just for the record my online name came about because I was a Design Engineer working for Sellafield Nuclear site, using CAD software. I needed a username when joining an AutoCad forum - Hence Nuke CAD. I've used it on forums ever since. (But that's not as much fun as Boring Council Dweller). 'Vinandr's mere' (or Vinandr's lake) over time becomes Windermere, that's fine. But you still shouldn't say Lake Windermere, although almost everyone does, that's using the word lake twice. I did say that
  12. A bit pedantic but 'lake Windermere' is a bit of a misnomer. (So is the 'river Avon', look it up). 'Mere' means 'lake'. As in Windermere, Buttermere, Grassmere, Thirlmere, etc. The word mere designates a lake that is shallow compared to it's surface area. Although in Cumbria it's probably more to do with where the settlers came from, mere (or mare) is latin, water (or vatten) is Norse, lake (or lac) is Norman. Old trick quiz question - How many lakes are there in the English Lake District National Park? Answer - One. (Bassenthwaite lake). All the rest are either meres, waters,
  13. £10 - you must be in the UK? I know all about crappy broadband living here in Cumbria. It might get up to 2 Mbps, but it's usually in Kbps. (I am lucky that I live next to a pub and so can steal their crappy WiFi, with their permission of course). When it's at its worst I forget it altogether and tether the laptop through USB to my phone. That way I'm using the phones 3G signal to connect, (doing it now), and the data allowance on my phone package. The only problem I had with 1709 was the new 'Controlled folder access' in the Security Centre, which is supposed to be
  14. I liked JRT in general, a reasonably quick junkware scan with no installation needed, even if it did seem a bit old fashioned running in the Command Window with no GUI. But once Malwarebytes acquired JRT in 2015 then it was always their stated intention to incorporate it into the main Malwarebytes programme itself. The same was stated when they acquired ADwCleaner in 2016. Moving JRT's removal functions into ADwCleaner seems just the first step of this, JRT and ADW did cover quite a bit of the same ground. Expect ADW to be incoporated into Malwarebytes at some future time.
  15. I've had no problems with 1709 on my laptop which is 3 years old. It's going to depend on who made your computer, and just what is running on it. I used to have a fragmented pagefile, and tried messing about with the MS settings. In the end (after a bit of reading) I set it to let windows manage it and then did a Boot Time Defrag with Defeaggler. You can't defragment the pagefile while it is in use so it needs to be done before. All in one piece and no problems so left it alone since then.
  16. Different defraggers work to different algorithms, any two developers will have their own ideas about which is the best way to defrag. eg. is it better to have files in contiguous blocks, maybe with gaps between them on the disc, or better to fill the gaps in the disc and let files become 'split up' over disc clusters? Different developers will give different opinions, and the defrag programme they write will give different results. There is no one 'standard' way of doing it, that's why there are so many defragmenters to choose from. Choose whichever suits you. You won't be able
  17. Did you get any feedback about this flood control issue? It's still being a pain when I want to do the occasional search. I know that flood control is used as a tool against spambots/searchbots, but does it realy need to be set so long for regular members?
  18. As said above I do not have a website on that domain, so don't need a website SSL for it. I emailed them asking why they kept trying to sell me something that if they checked my account with them they could clearly see that I did not need. No reply, but the 'reminder' sales emails stopped.
  19. Blaming CCleaner, or any software, for a problem when running an insider build would seem to indicate that you do not know just what an insider build is. As mta says, insider builds are beta testing versions of Windows 10. They are there so that compatibility issues caused by changes to Windows 10 can be found by the 'insiders' before the changes are fully released. Insider builds are expected to have issues - that is what they are for, to find the issues that Microsoft have caused with their modifications. Any issue with any software and an insider build is 99% sure the be
  20. I hadn't noticed that, I usually change page as soon as I have logged out, but it's also still showing me in the online list after I have logged out. Even if I log out, navigate away from the forum, visit another couple of sites, and come back it's still showing me in the online list even though its asking for a sign-in at the top right. I decided to see how it went over time and revisited about every 5 mins after logging out. I disappeared from the online list after 30 minutes. A bit more playing about showed that the cause of this is the 'Remember me' tickbox when you are loggi
  21. There are some major changes with this FFx version, both in the GUI and under the hood. Expect to see lots of posts in the next few weeks saying "CCleaner is not cleaning Firefox properly", "CCleaner changed my Firefox", etc., etc.
  22. I've checked on Malwarbytes which has the same version of IPB (4.2.5) and that's fine if a bit slow to change page, I'm only getting the flood control on here, so it would seem to be site related and not a browser problem. It's happening when changing pages in the search results if the current page has been up for less than 15 seconds. Note that despite the warning text this is not a new search, just a page change for the current search results. Below is a screenshot of what I am seeing if I try to change page quickly, (obviously I tried to change that one within a second of it
  23. Cheers Hazel, I had overlooked that '+search by author' button and was looking in the selections below. I'm still having an issue with the flood control when trying to change the results page, looks like it's set at 15 seconds for a page change. I guess I'll just have to slow down.
  24. I'm having problems with the Advanced Search. The search will not let me filter results for content made by a particular user. (Searching for one of my own old posts). So I search just for the term used by any user, The user I'm looking for (me) is not on page 1 of the results, So I click for page 2..... and get flood control. ("Please wait ## seconds before attempting another search). Which means back to the start again. But then it seems to extend the flood timer interval and so you have to wait even longer before making a new search or trying to change the results page.
  25. Never found out just what was causing it, best guess was that changes made to IE/Edge in Windows 10 meant that CC had to be changed, and this somehow slowed down the checking of IE history. If you have disabled it and want to do a one off clean (after using IE to test something), then just right click the greyed out 'history' in CC and clean it from there. (Right clicking on any single category will give the option to ananlyse/clean it, whether it's ticked or not for 'standard' cleaning)
