  1. Would it be possible to provide more explanation of this change? Adobe Flash Player is still listed under the CCleaner Applications. Should be leave it checked, unchecked or ignore that setting? How do we provide persistence in our Flash Player settings? Do we need to use CCleaner to save a specific cookie (what's the name(s) of the cookies supposedly listed in the Cookies to Delete list? I don't see any Flash Player specific cookies listed there). Sorry, but I got lost trying to figure out what was changed in CCleaner and what I'm supposed to do about the change to either purge or keep my Fla
  2. **Revised** For non-admin users, CCleaners's "Cookies to Delete" list is not being purged but the cookies on that list are being deleted as confirmed by IECookiesView from NirSoft. So, this is a new bug in this version 2.19. I have confirmed that this bug does not exist in version 2.18. For non-admins, CCleaner Cleaner settings, Windows Tab, Internet Explorer, the only item checked for those users is Cookies. In IE8, all users, I've set the Browsing History Delete to NOT delete cookies prefering instead to have CCleaner selectively delete cookies with its Save list. For non-admins,
  3. Before the installation of CCleaner v2.19, I checked each of my user's CCleaner configurations for accuracy and inclusion of specific cookies and files/folders. Each user on the CCleaner computer has their own registry settings. WinXP SP3 IE8 is installed with the following settings for the Browsing History Delete: Preserve favorite website data: No Temporary Internet Files: Yes Cookies: No History: Yes Form Data: Yes Passwords: Yes InPrivate Filtering Data: No If you set Cookies: Yes, IE8 will wipe out your cookies regardless of your CCleaner settings so setting IE8 so it preser
  4. Mike, I don't believe NT4 SP6 is supported by Microsoft any longer. Therefore, the programming for CCleaner would likely not support unsupported operating systems. Check this link: http://support.microsoft.com/gp/lifewinfaq
  5. Eraser will do exactly what you need it to do. DBAN is great for rebuilding systems from scratch. You only need to wipe one time, however. In fact just use DBAN defauts for those times you want to start all over with a fresh drive, OS, applications, etc. Eraser, on the other hand, erases files, folders and/or free disk space. You will need to learn and understand how it works to be effective. Understand that when Windows deletes a file, nothing happens except the file name is removed from view and the space occupied is marked as available. So for your cleaning, you need to ask youself wha
  6. I've been running IE8 on WinXPProSP3 with CCleaner. With administrative rights, the index.dat file gets cleaned properly on the reboot. But for users without administrative rights, that's not the case. Those users can't clear out their cache index. The files themselves are cleared but not the index. You can see this in action when you use Nirsoft's IECacheView utility. Run an IE8 session as a user without administrative rights then close the browser. Open IECacheView and you'll see the contents of the cache for the logged on user. There's a column on there called Missing File the files wil
  7. Indeed! The necessary checkbox is located at: Cleaner > Advanced > Wipe Free Space. The documentation has since been updated to reflect this and is located at: http://docs.piriform.com/ccleaner/using-cc...free-disk-space which describes not only this checkbox to activate the feature but another located under Settings to select the drive which will be subject to the free space wipe. I ageee that we would like to see some brave souls run this option on some test systems before we jump in and test on our production systems. I don't have the luxury of an extra computer so I'll wait patie
  8. Wipe Free Space Drives Documentation Missing from FAQ, Documentation and Tour. Granted it's a new function although it would be useful to have some background help with the function. On my WinXP SP3 system, I could not verify that the function actually ran. I don't know if it is supposed to run when CCleaner runs or if it's a separate function that can be run standalone. There appears to be nothing more than a checkbox for the drive whose free space is to be wiped. With that C:\ box checked and with admin rights, I run the CCleaner Analyzer option and it does not indicate it will do any m
  9. When CCleaner Option, "Run CCleaner when the computer starts" is checked, and the options are NOT stored in an INI file, an entry is created in HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run. This would suggest the option should be titled, "Run CCleaner when the current user (who sets this option) logs on." On multi-user home systems, I've had several folks tell me that CCleaner is not running even though the "Owner" set it to run "when the computer starts." It would be useful to have a CCleaner option to clear all the user profiles according to either a master profile or as set by eac
  10. Cookies to save (keep) are in the each individual user's registry at: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Piriform\CCleaner\CookiesToSave You can use reg.exe (it's in C:\WINDOWS\system32) after reviewing how it works (see KB310516) to update the registry.
  11. Actually, the cookies to keep are in the user's registry at: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Piriform\CCleaner in an entry called, CookiesToSave You can export this to a file. You'll want to do this for each user account on the computer if you're re-imaging. Otherwise, if you're just rebuiliding one user profile, export just that user's registry settings.

  13. The Run (In Start Menu) is not functioning as expected in CC 2.03.532. The run commands are cleared only on logoff and/or shutdown/startup. It would be useful, if possible, to have the Run commands cleared in the current session as well. Environment: WinXP Pro SP2 all updates applied. Problem exists for admin and non-admin users. I do not recall this being an issue with previous versions. 12/5/2007
  14. IE7 running on WinXP Pro with SP2 (and all updates applied) includes a Browsing History Delete option on the Tools, Internet Options, General tab. Use the Delete All to clean up index.dat files although the "All" will also wipe cookies you may have set to save with CCleaner. Use the individual cleaning options, except the cookie cleaner, to leave your favorite cookies. To see how this IE7 cleaning differs from CCleaner's, download Process Explorer from Sysinternals (http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysinternals/default.mspx). With Process Explorer running, start IE7. In Process Explorer, s
