CCleaner UI Bugs


Ishi

Recommended Posts

I personally think that the later versions of CCleaner we have have more noticeable bugs than earlier ones so this gave me a feeling that the later versions are less stable ones. One bug that I have seen from 2 or 3 versions now, starting from v.3.03 or v.3.04 is that when you open the Registry cleaner section via the taskbar jumplist, the checkboxes are not visible and this persists till v.3.05.

 

Another very noticeable bug that I have seen for the first time on v.3.05 is that the "Analyze" and "Run Cleaner" buttons would appear grey, basically unclickable for 3 seconds since CCleaner opened. I tried closing CCleaner then opened it again and I still see those buttons freeze; grey and unclickable for 3 seconds. I have included a screenshot on how those bugs look like.

I love computer maintenance tasks.

Some of my favorite programs:

Wordpad -basic word processing

Notepad - temporary clipboard and basic scripting module

Windows Media Player 12- video, music and online radio player

Windows Media Center - live TV, local FM radio

CCleaner- handy computer maintenance tool

 

If something fails to work after using the registry cleaner, use SYSTEM RESTORE.

For me the buttons have ALWAYS been active with CC version 2.

I only suffered a 3 to 15 second delay between launching CC and having it appear.

 

The buttons have ALWAYS been frozen for the first 3 to 15 seconds of CC version 3 appearing,

which is because v 3.* appears whilst still loading and organising itself.

 

The delay was 15 seconds with a full download of Winapp2.ini,

and became 3 seconds when I chopped out the 95% of Winapp2.ini that was not relevant to my applications.

 

I suggest you launch Windows Task Manager and select processes and click on CPU so the cycle consumers are at the top with System Idle.

Then launch CCleaner and you will probably see CC is busy using CPU cycles for your 3 seconds.

You POSSIBLY may see other things (such as anti-malware) also taking an interest, using the CPU and possibly delaying the CC actions whilst evaluating whether or not to allow CC to do the things that require administrator authority.

To me, v.3 doesn't launch any faster than v.2* in fact, v.2* launches faster to me so I'm not very convinced that v.3 opens whilst its still busy and preparing itself while v.2 apparently opens faster but does not have this issue. And I have not modified anything in my Winapp2.ini.

 

But the missing checkboxes of the Registry cleaner section when its launched from the taskbar jumplist in v.3 is DEFINATELY a bug here which they better fix.

Dude, these are cosmetic bugs, and EXTREMELY cosmetic at that. Just use the right-click run cleaner option from the recycle bin if you dont want to wait 3 seconds.

 

Your comment about the programs being less "stable" than previous versions is unwarranted.

I use the "Run Cleaner" option on the taskbar jumplist quite often cause I chose to hide the "Run Cleaner" option on the Recylce Bin context menu.

 

But I do feel that CCleaner v.3* use to launch a bit slower than v.2* and has these noticeable UI bugs that weren't present on its predecessor so this gave me an impression that v.3* is "less stable".

I am not sure about you, but it seems to be working fine for me.

Are you sure some system settings have not changed for you?

 

I just tested the jump lists loading of CCleaner 3.09 on my Windows 7 Netbook.

Even with only 1 GB ram, & a dual core Celeron Atom 1.66 GHZ processor, there was no delay in loading CCleaner.

 

I even created a shortcut to the taskbar, so I can try it & then I right clicked to jump to the CCleaner run.

Both buttons immediately were usable, after I clicked the UAC prompt.

 

I tried the right click to load to the registry cleaner, & it loaded immediately, with all options as well.

Have you tried a clean install of your OS?

 

I am thinking this can't be a problem with CCleaner.

Anyone else experience this?

The 'Analyze' and 'Run Cleaner' buttons take several seconds to load

These buttons don't become active till winapp.ini and winsys.ini (also if its there, winapp2.ini and/or winsys2.ini) have loaded. There is really not much you can do about this.

 

This is usually caused by having many programs installed.
