  1. Defraggler: Willy2's bug reports

    - Found another small bug in DF. The user is able to click on a place on the drivemap. If there're files placed in that particular spot then DF will list those files that are located there. But then the file list fails to give an indication on how the list is sorted. There's no Arrow head displayed in one of the headers of the file list. In this one particular case the program code forgets to make the arrowhead show up. See also the picture in the weblink: https://1drv.ms/i/s!AluvxwylJSzygRnD2AT08SavZGV9 Only when I sort that list (for the 1st time) an Arrow head will show up. Every time after that I sort the file list then that Arrow head keeps showing up (as it should).
  2. windows 7 64bit runs slowly on amd ii x2 240

    - Install PcWinTech's CLEANMEM. It reduces every 10 minutes memory usage.
  3. First defrag ever on the drive 4tb

    - Did you do a "Full Defrag" ? - I personally only defrag the fragmented files and only rarely do a full defrag. Precisely because a full defrag does take so much time.
  4. Defraggler: Willy2's bug reports

    - Came across another odd thing. Sometimes the DF drivemap fails to correctly show which spots on a drive are and aren't occupied by files. See the picture (weblink) for an example. - The DF drivemap thinks that the yellow blocks contain files but when I click on of the yellow blocks, DF reports "No files found". - DF also makes another error. When I click on the black blocks then DF reports that one or more files are stored in that particular block. But the DF drivemap tells another story, the drive map says that these blocks don't contain any files at all. These blocks then show up in white. (In the picture I only changed the color of a few blocks - eleven in total - in the picture to black & yellow). https://1drv.ms/u/s!AluvxwylJSzygRiMsAXoXiBgHl31
  5. New SSD's

    - Based on my limited (!!!!) knowledge, I could make a case that the WMI database is corrupted and needs to be rebuild. There're programs that can do that (e.g. Tweaking's Windows Repair, repair #5 in that program can do that job).
  6. Defraggler: Willy2's bug reports

    - Took a look at all my reported bugs and I think that the issue mentioned in post #39 is the worst bug in the program code and I think it has therefore the highest priority on the list of bugs. (Yes, I keep nagging)
  7. - @Razz: Is your computer behind a (WiFi) router ? If so, then already a lot of viruses & other malware are eliminated (by the router). Don't know the details on how it works but it works.
  8. Defraggler: Willy2's bug reports

    - The behaviour of moving files to the end of the drive, as described in post #39 in this thread, also happens when I use a different method of moving files towards the end of the drive. I.e. when I use the "Defrag" options. (See picture in the weblink). https://1drv.ms/i/s!AluvxwylJSzygRe-gJTpLIeZ6iq1
  9. Defraggler: Willy2's bug reports

    - I regularly use a program called "Clonespy" which is made in Germany. This program also recognizes - like DF - that the dutch name of the folder "C:\Users" should be displayed as "Gebruikers". But Clonespy doesn't have the sorting problem as described above. When the program displays a list with sorted folder names, it correctly places the folder "Gebruikers" between "GameHouse Games" and "Geluidsfragmenten". See this screenshot: https://1drv.ms/u/s!AluvxwylJSzygRZk92SzDknykOKd Clonespy: http://www.clonespy.com/

    - (Australian) Politicians are a danger for the human population ??? LOL.
  11. Defraggler: Willy2's bug reports

    Found two language related (non fatal) issues/bugs in the last version of DF. - Found a translation error: DF is able to search a drive only for filenames or parts of file names (incl. extensions). But the dutch translation states that DF also can search for (parts of) folder names. - Another language related thing that can be improved in a future version. When I want to select the folder "C:\Users" on my dutch Win 7 system (See my signature) then DF does always pull up and displays the right dutch name for that system folder ("Gebruikers"). But here's where DF gets "off the rails". To allow the user select one or more folders, the names of the folders needs to be sorted alphabetically. Then DF doesn't take into account that that folder is called "Gebruikers" on my dutch system. Then DF assumes that that folder is called "C:\Users" and not "c:\Gebruikers". And then the list with folder names is displayed accordingly. As a result the folder "Gebruikers" ends up (in the sorted list) between "C:\Uitzoeken" and "C:\Videos". See this screenshot: https://1drv.ms/u/s!AluvxwylJSzygRXEXtjWw0XlNuxf I assume that this sorting problem is not limited to dutch. I assume that users who use other languages have the same problem.
  12. - It also depends on what kind of defragging you want to be executed. If you only defragment the fragmented files then it's much faster than when you defrag the entire drive.
  13. - It seems that a number of translators were a bit lazy. Because when I change the language to japanese the text does get translated !!! (running Ccleaner PRO v5.28)
  14. February 2017 Security Updates delay.

    - When I look at the "Optional" updates then it suggests that people with a Win 7 system will only have 1 update in the next "Windows Update tuesday" and that update is offered twice. Odd, very odd.
  15. March Desktops

    - Another creation of M.C. Escher. https://1drv.ms/i/s!AluvxwylJSzygRJlW73V2L6GYohC (I use the build-in Windows Screensaver to refresh my desktop picture every day. But the software isn't flawless. Sometimes I see the same picture for more than one or two days.)
  16. - I use Defraggler to defrag & move files from selected folders to the beginning of the drive. Files from the following folders: - C:\Program files. - C:\Program files (x86) - C:\users - C:\ProgramData - C:\Windows - I regularly move files in all other folders to the end of the drive.
  17. Creepy IoT teddy bear leaks data

    - So, it's not the bear itself that has leaked that info/data but the computer database that was connected to the IoT bear that was "poorly" secured. - IoT fridges, IoT toy bears, ............... . More good reasons to stay away/avoid IoT connected devices. Or - at least - turn off the IoT functionality. Is it possible to switch off those IoT features ?
  18. Windows 7 Service Pack 3

    Woody Leonhard wrote an article with a VERY interesting headline "Signs point to Microsoft's imminent release of Windows 7 'Service Pack 3'" http://www.infoworld.com/article/3158858/microsoft-windows/signs-point-to-microsofts-imminent-release-of-windows-7-service-pack-3.html (from january 18, 2017. One month old). - Seems the folks at MS have read my comments on the MS blog. I posted a comment three times on their blog with the suggestion for a new SP. - I must say I am looking forward to that SP3 for my Win 7 system. (Or is it going to be SP2 ??). - Perhaps MS is also going to issue a new Service Pack for Win 8 ?
  19. Windows 7 Service Pack 3

    - And don't forget the problems with Windows Update that started around March/April 2016 !!!
  20. Windows 7 Service Pack 3

    - Perhaps they want to avoid the "SP 2" mess again and issue SP 3 ? - My personal opinion is that issueing a new SP would avoid A LOT OF hassle, for A LOT OF people including MS itself. I also have written on this forum that a new SP would provide a clean stable foundation for those monthly roll up (security) updates MS started to issue in october 2016. - No, I am not holding my breath too. But I certainly would love to see a new Win 7 SP. But it seems MS was too busy fixing bugs in Win 10.
  21. February 2017 Security Updates delay.

    - Now MS even pulled that one "optional" update. So, the updates for February 2017 will be skipped. Is MS afraid to tell the (painfull) truth ?
  22. Fun with Donald Trump

    For a bit of fun: http://trumpdonald.org/ Move the (mouse-)cursor around on this webpage, click on the mouse buttons and see what happens. LOL.
  23. Fun with Donald Trump

    - A dutch comedian used Trump's words to promote the Netherlands. To make the Netherlands number #2 in the world. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j-xxis7hDOE (comedians in other european countries liked the dutch version and then made their own version). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ryppmnDbqJY https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WcH9eWBs9fw https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=reuJ8yVCgSM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eYaqM8J2csw https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=omo1xteiXaE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1Vh0qPnjpM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SVDR-y03XX4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EE8ubSC-TOQ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vmHj9FKvv38 (Bavaria is one of the states that make up the Federal Republic of Germany (FRG)). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bavaria

    - Trump also plays the accordion. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S65jqrHQi_c
  25. February 2017 Security Updates delay.

    - I indeed was wondering what happened to the Update mechanism. I feared MS wanted to give priority to Win 10 systems. - This month Windows Update recommended only one "optional" update for my Win 7 system.
