CCleaner slow to start up


Recommended Posts

Do you have the latest NVIDIA drivers installed?


Noticed that a new driver - 178.13 is now available for download. Thought people might like a heads-up!

So these are the results of my latest testing and observations:

1) The latest nVidia driver had no effect at all.

2) After a reboot, the problem came right back, taking almost a full 2 minutes to open up CCleaner. I watched it in ProcessExplorer and the funny thing is that it does almost nothing during this time. It's using <4MB of RAM and the CPU usage would VERY occasionally blip to .5% or so during that time but that was all.

3) In safe mode, running as the administrator, it will open almost instantly.


Not really sure that the means other than it must be something that's running and messing with it. The really odd thing is that this just started to happen recently with the newer builds of CCleaner. I am posting my HijackThis log with the hope that maybe that will help shed some light on the problem.

Can you post your hijack this log in the Spyware Hell part of the forum here




Put in a summary of the post you have just made to help the spyware mod with info.


By the way the slowness didn't coincide with you starting to use IE8 did it?


Also I thought you said you didn't have yahoo toolbar?

LOL, sorry, I should have said something about that. Since that log came from my desktop at work, those are the programs that we use to do key logging on all the systems throughout the network.



I believe that small remnant (you will notice the "no file") is what was left after I removed the toolbar installed at the factory.

As for IE 8, I don't believe so as I have been using it since the first beta which has been some time now. Though I did recently switch to beta2 of IE8 which could possibly have something to do with it.

I will post in the spyware forum but I would be almost %100 that there is nothing malicious on this systems. It sits behind a firewall, iSensor (thoroughly inspects each packed), and multiple levels of AV scanning.


edit: I have posted on the Spyware Hell forum, post is here: http://forum.piriform.com/index.php?showtopic=18037
