  1. I asked the question what the standard default defrag does exactly but received no response. It's not in the documentation... I don't think free space consolidation should take a very long time. Of course it would depend on how much data and how long it's been since the last defrag. I'm wondering if the standard default defrag is also moving system files to the faster part of the disk. I've used another defrag program weekly where defrag and free space consolidation takes 10 minutes on both of my systems. Bottom line is quick defrag or defraging from the file list are great, but they leave gaps that promote fragmentation.
  2. 2012 Summer Olympics

    Anyone in London going to the Games? Anyone worldwide just watching the Games? I like Track and Field and Gymnastics. Being from the USA, I'm looking forward to Lolo Jones redeeming herself from the 2008 Beijing stumble she had in the 100 meter hurdles. Go Lolo! Remember the time zone differences. No spoilers!
  3. What does the standard default Defrag routine do exactly?
  4. Default Defrag Routine

    Why does the standard default Defrag routine take so long? Is it moving system files to the faster part of the disk?
  5. You could run check disk. Start > My Computer > Right click on C drive and select properties > Tools, Error-checking, Check Now > Automatically fix file system errors > Start > Schedule disk check > Reboot.
  6. Hi Cleaner1, and welcome to the forum. 1) Cancel the cleaning. 2) Clear the box for Wipe Free Space. Cleaner > Windows > Advanced > Wipe Free Space. 3) Run the Cleaner again. If your new to CCleaner, reading the information in the link below would be beneficial. You'll also find many here on the forum willing to lend a hand.
  7. Click ALL

    Each section already has a right click menu. For example, right click on Internet Explorer, Windows Explorer, etc.... You are given five choices. 1) Check all 2) Uncheck all 3) Analyze 4) Clean 5) Restore to default state This works for the Windows and Applications tabs as well. If you hover your mouse over the tab name, you can change all sections within the tab at once. If check all is used, you should read each warning as they pop up. I would use these options with caution! The Registry Cleaner section doesn't have the analyze or clean options.
  8. Uh oh

    After the most recent Windows updates, I rebooted then noticed that Trustedinstaller.exe was using 50% CPU for 10 minutes. This happened before so I looked up the process and found that this is common. TrustedInstaller.exe checks for updates and is supposedly responsible for installing some critical updates. So, I just go on over to the kitchen and get a snack while the process finishes its job. Depending on the systems specs., it could be as much as 100% CPU usage and render the system unusable.
  9. That's what I call toughing it out Mudd. Thank you sir for your service in the Military and may you have a speedy recovery.
  10. If your able to lift your legs so someone else can vacuum under them, your doing OK.
  11. Merry Christmas

    Best wishes for the holidays all, and may they be filled with warm moments and cherished memories.
  12. Matt Russo aka 'SpySentinel' has passed away. I didn't have the pleasure of knowing Matt personally, but I do know his presence will be missed on many forums. http://www.geekstogo...inel/#more-2332 http://forums.malwar...howtopic=101763 My heartfelt condolences go out to his loved ones. R.I.P. Matt The tragic story is told here... http://www.pittsburg...d/s_771258.html
  13. You could also try shift+delete to bypass the recycle bin. (Use with caution)
  14. Did you try using unlocker to delete, rename then delete, or move file to desktop then drag or delete file to recycle bin?
  15. I noticed the download size is different at File Hippo than it is at the authors site. They also offer different versions. Here's a link for the download. Watch for Toolbar and desktop shortcuts during install.
  16. You could try Unlocker to delete the file. If no locking handles are found, using unlocker try to delete, rename then delete, or move file to desktop then drag or delete file to recycle bin. Use this program with caution, and watch for Toolbar and desktop shortcuts during install.
  17. Light-Bot

    Control a robot by giving it commands. Use programmer-style logic for more complex levels that include functions to re-use. http://armorgames.com/play/2205/light-bot
  18. Does wipe free space ONLY wipe free space

    Hi karlsnooks, and welcome to the forum. "Wipe Free Space" will leave your normal files intact and only wipe the free space on the drive selected. "Wipe Entire Drive" will erase all of the files on the drive selected. For safety reasons, this feature is disabled for the boot drive. Take a look at this for more info.
  19. ccleaner big problem

    Hi sophie, Since Hazel established that you're running as an administrator, you could try importing the .reg file. Before editing the registry in any way, I highly recommend the backup program Erunt. To import a .reg file...Start > run > regedit > file > import > browse to .reg file and highlight it then select open. This should merge the file, if not you may have a file association problem. You can find the fix here. Download the REG file association fix.
  20. SUPERAntiSpyware v5.0 Final Released

    I feel outside the circle here, but I just updated to version 5 with the programs updater. Went fine and it seems to be running OK including the unwanted service SASCORE.EXE. Seems strange that the new version scans memory, the registry and files simultaneously.
  21. DuckDuckgo

    If you set DuckDuckGo to show "All WOT + favicons (both)", the WOT icons appear all the time. Trust, caution or warning for each result respectively.
  22. DuckDuckgo

    This got me looking at the settings and decided I wanted to change a few. I like that you can save your settings without a cookie for both DuckDuckGo and starting page. They both will generate a URL that you can save as a favorite or set as your home page.
  23. DuckDuckgo

    Thanks Hazel, I've added this to my list of search engines. That's one clever duck, or in other words a wise quacker. A few facts about the founder. I also like the starting page, thanks to you as well Corona.
  24. Microsoft Security Essentials

    Does Microsoft Security Essentials have the same effectiveness on XP as Vista and Windows 7? I read that it did better on the newer operating systems.
  25. User error?

    Do you want anymore help with CCleaner on your Vista system?
