CCleaner becomes very slow since Vista security upgrade

Recommended Posts

CCleaner has become slow since the last weekly Windows security upgrade.


It show on the screen:



Desktop Shortcuts


If I again immediately run CC it runs fine but if I use another program then run CC the first round has the same problem.


Any suggestions ?

Just turn off Desktop and Start Menu shortcuts, we know they slow down CCleaner a lot. What is happening is CCleaner has to check to make sure every icon actually goes somewhere which, depending on the number of shortcuts, can take quite awhile. Don't know why this would have manifested only after a Windows Update.

In any case though, the shortcuts don't need to be checked except after you delete files you had links to or uninstalled programs that you some how changed the links for.
