    - MS "retires" the Office Compatibility Pack 2007 (& 2010 ??) in april 2018 as well. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=3 (I still use Office XP/2003 on my Win 7 system and I know a way to get the last updates for Office XP when I re-install that program)
  2. Ccleaner: Willy2's bug reports

    - And this is what those "file size" options are supposed to look like. Compare that with the previous post. See inside the red rectangle in the picture attached.
  3. Ccleaner: Willy2's bug reports

    - I made a screenshot of what happens to the "Size options" in the "Duplicate files" screen on my dutch Win 7 system. See inside the blue rectangle in the picture in the attachment. - To let this bug show up twice (!!) the user has to check both (!!) "Size" boxes. When the user only checks one box then the bug shows up only once. - (A) similar bug(s) show(s) up in other languages as well (I tried dutch, german and italian). - What I consider to be VERY odd is the following: When another program opens a (new) window (partially) overlapping the CC "Duplicate files" screen and I then close/minimize that new window then this bug also shows up (again !!). Seems the handling of that kind of windows pushes CC (a bit) "off the rails".
  4. Ccleaner: Willy2's bug reports

    - Right. In other words, when the user has changed the language and then opens the "Duplicate Files" screen/option (from the "Tools" menu) the program code doesn't read all the new text strings that are needed for that screen.
  5. Ccleaner: Willy2's bug reports

    - Found a bunch of language related bugs in CC v5.41. - I started CC and switched the language from dutch to english. Then a number of words remain in dutch in the "Duplicate Files" screen. See inside the red rectangles in the picture attached. - There's another small bug in this same screen. When the language is dutch and I open this screen for the 1st time then inside the blue rectangle the 2 arrowheads aren't being displayed. Only when I click on where I think these Arrow heads are supposed to be then those arrowheads show up.
  6. Internet Explorer 11 update(s)

    - Re-installed Win 7 today because a number of things didn't work (properly) anymore (e.g. Windows Update (??)). - Did put "Windows Update" (WU) to work and it came up with some very odd suggestions. WU told me/suggested that I should install: (Important): - the december 2017 Rollup update for Win 7 (KB 4054518) - the september 2017 .NET Rollup update (KB 4041083) (Optional): - the november 2017 .NET Rollup update (KB 4049016) (???????) - Is MS too busy fixing (truck loads (???) of) bugs in Win 10 and therefore ignores Win 7 & Win 8 ((a bit) too much) ?
  7. Dogs vs cats - wich are cuter

    - Indeed, both can be cute. And cats and dogs all have their own "pros and cons". Although I prefer a dog over a cat.
  8. Defraggler: Willy2's bug reports

    - And yes, I found more things in DF v2.21 that can be improved in the next version. I don't know what the intentions are of the developers of DF but the program does show some inconsistent behaviour. - The user can choose between 3 options ("Modern", "Original" and "Custom") on how the program displays the drive map with the defragmented and fragmented files. But only under the option "Custom" the user is able to change the colors (in the "Colors" tab) used in the drive map. What I would like to see, is that the user is able to change those colors for all 3 options (incl. "Modern" & "Original").
  9. Internet Explorer 11 update(s)

    - No. Because I installed the latest "Cum. Update for IE 11" (KB4096040) first. After that I asked Windows Update to find more updates but it didn't find the March 2018 "Rollup Preview for Win 7". But this same Preview was available from the "MS Update catalogus" website.
  10. 7-zip Update

    - Agree. But this news wasn't posted in the last 3 months on this forum and I wanted to bring this to the attention of the readers of this forum.
  11. Internet Explorer 11 update(s)

    - The "Preview Rollup update" (for Windows 7, NOT for .NET) has the KB number KB 4088881 and was released on march 23, 2018. My "Windows Update" "doesn't find" this Preview update.
  12. Internet Explorer 11 update(s)

    - Indeed, that are the ones. Quote from the link provided in the previous post: "Cumulative security update for Internet Explorer: March 13, 2018 kb4089187 is replaced by : Cumulative security update for Internet Explorer: March 23, 2018 kb4096040 "
  13. Internet Explorer 11 update(s)

    - I fear "Windows Update" on my Win 7 system is (a bit) "broken". Because the "MS catalogus update" website already has the "Windows 7 March Rollup Update Preview" but when I run "Windows Update" that one Preview update doesn't show up. - I downloaded & installed the March 2018 Cumulative Update for IE 11. It was the second "Cumulative Update for IE 11" for this month. Did MS spot a "few bugs" in the 1st update released earlier this month ?
  14. Language problems

    - RC v1.53 is the latest version. - When I run the installation program (RC v1.53) and select a language (I tried dutch, german and french) then all texts in the GUI remain in english. Only when RC "extracts"/installs the files (the screen with the "progress bar") it displays the text(s) in e.g. dutch, german and French.
  15. Language problems

    - The lastest version of Recuva (v1.54) has a number of language related problems. The installation program fails to recognize the fact that I have a dutch Windows system and therefore fails to propose dutch as the installation language. Then all texts in the first installation screen remain in english. Other Piriform programs do recognize that I have a dutch computer system when I install that program. But - as mentioned - above, not RECUVA. - I would assume that it should be fairly simple to copy that from other programs to RECUVA.
  16. Internet Explorer 11 update(s)

    - No, in IE 11 that nagging pop up message keeps popping up. No matter what I try. (Did I overlook something ?) - When the user has installed a few "Cumulative Updates" & "Rollup Updates" (both for e.g. win 7 and for .NET software) then it seems that the the amount of files in the infamous "Winsxs" grows at a rapid pace (again). I ran the build-in "Cleanmanager" program ("cleanmgr.exe") 2 days ago and it was able to remove 1.42 GB worth of system files. Ouch !!!
  17. Internet Explorer 11 update(s)

    - The previous posts gave me some suggestions what to look for. But after changing some settings the nagging "Active content" pop-up message keeps popping up. I would assume that IE 11 would remember my preferences after a while. Perhaps I need to dig a little deeper (registry ???).
  18. Internet Explorer 11 update(s)

    - The latest update of IE 11 contains an extra filter/pop up mesage which helps the computer user to shield from "Active content". All fine and well but now the user has deal with one more pop up message. And it (seems to) interfere(s) with typing text when I want to use e.g. the GOOGLE search engine. VERY annoying !!!!!!! - I haven't quite figured out what to do about this. I hope this will get picked up by the "Customer Experience" software in Windows (7) and MS will remove it from the next IE update. - Question: Does the Piriform forum use "Active content" of any kind ? Because when I visit this forum this (annoying) message does pop up as well.
  19. Internet Explorer 11 update(s)

    - Search the "Microsoft Update Catalogus" website with "2018-03" and see what shows up. At this moment MS already has some 13 updates available for downloading & installing this month. These updates are "Updates" and "Cumulative updates" but no " Rollup" updates. I assume those "Rollup" updates will be available tomorrow ? - My personal opinion is and remains that MS should release a new Service Pack for both Win 8 & Win 7. And after doing that MS should release only "Cumulative Updates" (either with or without updates for IE 11). That - IMO - would make life for A LOT OF computer users AND for Microsoft much easier. Just install e.g. Win 7 (with or without SP1), install the latest Service Pack and the latest "Cumulative Update". And the computer user is ready to go.
  20. Internet Explorer 11 update(s)

    - Besides the "Monthly Rollup Update" for both Windows (e.g. for Win 7 and Win 8) and the .NET software, the user also can download the "Preview" versions of those updates. Search on the "MS Update Catalogue" website with the words "Preview Rollup Update" and "Preview Rollup Update .NET". - I failed to find the february 2018 Preview Rollup for the .NET software. Is that still "Work in progress" ? http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/home.aspx
  21. Website: Tweaking.com

    - A future version of Windows Repair will be available in multiple languages (other than english). Don't know whether or not people can volunteer to provide a translation for the program and when the program will be available for translation. Perhaps Tweaking has already lined up a bunch of translators. I assume that there will be an official announcement somewhere in the future on the Tweaking website. - For questions, feedback (on e.g. bugs) people can go to the Tweaking.com website. Feedback is still very welcome. www.Tweaking.com
  22. Defraggler: Willy2's bug reports

    - It turns out that the behaviour - as reported in the previous post - was indeed caused by interference of some other program. I tried to enter "200" and "300" (MB) today and I could do it without a problem. - But perhaps it's possible to "insulate" the program more from interference of other software ?
  23. - But was that partition or a similar drive this full (1.6% free) in the past as well ? Suggestions: 1) Increase the amount of free space to 10%. 2) Use "Defrag Freespace" and/or "Defrag Freespace (allow fragmentation)" to create the largest amount of contiguous amount of free space. 3) then start to defrag the drive.
  24. Internet Explorer 11 update(s)

    - I fear the latest "Cumulative Update for IE 11" update isn't "a success". I installed it yesterday and now the CPU fan makes (a lot) more noise. I will try if removing the update will help help to "cool things down".
  25. - The current version of Defraggler (v2.21) was released years ago. The program is known to have "a few rough edges" and it seems the developers never found a good solution to get rid of those "rough edges". I fear the developers "lost interest" in trying to improve the program code (and that includes making better use of the CPU's processing power) or the developers have other priorities. And that's a pity because I use the program every day. - Question: Do you see a difference between a compressed file and a non compressed (video-)file when you open it with your mediaplayer ? (I never had to compress files in order to free up space) - I also could imagine that Defraggler could speed up the defragmenting process when it would read the files (to be physically moved) into memory before it starts to (physically) move those files. Currently that doesn't seem to be the case when I look at the resource monitor in my Windows 7 system. - The "heavy lifting" of moving files is done by an Windows API and I could imagine that that API has "a number of flaws" as well. Don't know what to make of it. (Developers of Defraggler: Are you reading this thread/these posts ???)
