  1. Like many, I have come to trust C Cleaner to keep my PC clean and tidy. No doubt, like me, most people also have numerous passwords, user names and PIN numbers, of which some may be very sensitive, financially or personally. If, you have these in a printable file, which is updated from time to time, then - even if that file is not kept on the PC and stored safely elsewhere, it has to be accessed to update and then deleted to the re-cycle bin and then 'Permanently Deleted', when the Bin is emptied. Not so! Having done this file update myself, quite recently and deleted the file, after prin
  2. Hi Nuke cad I offer this quote from the Lake District National Park web site: "Windermere in the Lake District - ten and a half miles long and 219 feet deep - is England's largest LAKE. Its name comes from the Scandinavian for 'lake of a man called Vinandr' ". So they seem to think it is a lake and don't agree with your name derivation either. You may also be interested in the derivation of your own unusual pen name - Nuke comes from the Nordic word for 'Born on a Council Estate', and Cad comes from the Anglo Saxon for 'Boring'. Bye the way, these facts are also not co
  3. Somerset, to be more precise, but used to live in Blackpool - used to water ski on lake Windermere, Cumbria, many years ago, (small world - even smaller when help with this topic arrives from Brisbane, Australia - very impressive). I don't seem to have the Controlled folder access option, I assume that is because I had to roll back from 1709, but your comments noted, thanks, for when MS get it better sorted - will give it another try in a month or two, but check online first for bug fixes.
  4. Thanks for your comment. After reading the VSS discussion, it sounds like it could easily be the cause of the fragmentation increase. However, now it is resolved, I will leave well alone for a while. I am retired and no longer a power user, so with regular full backups to a separate internal HDD, including shadow disk copies, I feel I am covered for most major issues - even HDD failure. What a brilliant discussion group - thanks for all the help.
  5. Lucky you if 1709 works on your laptop - just look online at all the issues others are having. I had too many issues to list - so just did roll back. Just out of interest - I did the update on my 32 bit PC and it failed - (3 GB download). Ran the update repair tool then updated again - (another 3 GB as it doesn't retain the earlier download). Did the same on my wife's 64 bit PC - same problem, but at 4 GB a time on 64 bit. We have to use mobile broadband in our rural location due to sub 1 MB/sec speed on landline and no fiber. This is capped at 40 GB per month, so very upset tha
  6. Hi Nukecad Delighted to get such a quick and well informed reply to my post. I used no advanced options with Defraggler. I only used the two basic options, Quick defrag or full defrag and let it do its own thing. On checking back over my post, I got one thing the wrong way round - the PC snail pace resulted from the Microsoft Update 1709 - after roll-back to previous update, the PC speed was normal. I simply did the clean-up and defrag to tidy things up after undoing the massive, bug laden, Microsoft update. I even had to run the Microsoft update repair tool before 1709 would install s
  7. I carried out the latest Windows 10 fall creators update 1709 on my PC and encountered numerous issues, just like many other people. So I rolled back to my earlier version of Windows 10, for the time being, as it was problem free. Hopefully Microsoft will sort out all the bugs one day. The PC was also operating at a snails pace, after the roll back, so I did a C Cleaner clean up and then ran Defraggler, as I had not de-fragmented for some time, (several months), Defraggler reported 9851 Fragmented files, 33815 Fragments and 23% fragmented. After a Quick Defrag, I was left with 7412 fragmen
