First let me thank you for a wonderful product.

Having a little problem and it probably isn't Ccleaner but something else causing Ccleaner to start up very slow
or not at all. I am running version V2.19.901. I just ran a scan of my puter with ESS and there were no infections.
I tried uninstalling Ccleaner and reinstalling it. Still the same problem.
Should/can I go back to the previous version and see if that clears up the problem?
If so, how can I get the previous version?
I also ran defraggler v1.10.143 and it was slow starting.
Sorry to bother you all with this.

Maybe I've answered my own questions.
I uninstalled v2.19.901 and installed v2.19.900 and everything has cleared up.
Just as soon as I say that when I go back something else will happen. Hope not.
I guess something is wrong with V2.19.901.
Thanks

It may well be a conflict with some other unknown. Do you start CC from Start/Pgms or the desktop icon? Either way my 901 start is more or less instantaneous.

Hi Augeas,
I'm starting from the desktop Icon.
Mines erratic. Sometimes instantly, sometimes very slow, sometimes after I go into something else.
Tried turning off "UAC". That didn't make a difference.
Went back to V2.19.900. Still the same problem.
I went into Ccleaner and took all the checks out of Firefox. Don't think that made a difference.
I'm very finicky about security, so I don't think it's a virus. I just installed PclinuxOS on another drive
in a triple boot system. So I only use Vista when absolutely necessary. All email and most web browsing
are done on Pclinuxos.
I'm sure you guys will come up with something so I will just wait.
Thanks

I wonder if having Ccleaner NOT starting at StartUp could be the problem.
It worked in the past.
Still looking.
