  1. I got same error: Runtime error 0

    Possibly your installation of MS Visual Basic Runtime is messed up, download it, install it, reboot.
  2. Translation

    Rough translation: Hello I'm about to translate the guide into French. I will inform you as soon as it's available on my site.
  3. Foxie Cleaner?

    That's happened before with rip-off's of Ad-Aware, Spybot S&D, CDex, etc. It can also be because someone is lacking in the ability or creativity to create something completely unique so they instead copy bit's and pieces from another app's look. Copying or should I say mimicking isn't just a software issue as it has been going on for decades with automobile manufacturers, electronics, etc., now there's insecure people on T.V. who are willing to get plastic surgery or whatever else it takes to look like their favorite movie star or rock star.
  4. Start Up

    Lol, as if the Task Manager would do anything. I'm slipping.
  5. convert video into dvd

    Please do! I'm very interested in your results and comments since I tried three different hardware type components over the past 1 1/2 years to convert VHS to DVD however all three components failed miserably as each one crashed my system, which was the reason I then bought a JVC home DVD recorder which unfortunately turned out to be ultra buggy, but nonetheless I was able to convert my most favourite VHS tapes.
  6. Hosts File

    I tried that HostsMan program and really didn't like it, to each their own I suppose. It made my beautifully alphabetized hosts file a mess, good thing I make backups.
  7. A litany of questions

    I think he's talking about a soundcard.
  8. WIN98 problem

    You may need the MS Visual Basic 6 SP6 Runtime Files if they're not already installed. Download them, install them, reboot after install.
  9. Foxie Cleaner?

    Well in any event it looks like Mr.G should protect the .exe and .dll files of CCleaner so they can't be so easily ripped off. Of course this would increase the download size a bit, and cause the program to load slower, however I would gladly put up with a bigger setup file an slower loading to stop rip off artists that are essentially just rewording a program and making some quick modifications.
  10. Start Up

    I would personally disable what Tarun stated was safe to disable via the Task Manager, that way if you want to undo the disabling of an item you won't have to figure out what a startup parameter exactly is such as "nwiz.exe /install", this can eliminate having to reinstalling an application that may not necessarily have a way to configure it to start when Windows does. Note: If you have a more than basic/standard Microsoft Mouse such as IntelliMouse Explorer, etc., disabling point32.exe "may" or "will" disable some of its functionality, e.g.; the extra buttons, however if you don't use those extra functions it won't harm anything to disable it.
  11. help!

    Stop fighting, it was a missed word in my post as I meant to type Visual Basic Script file.
  12. Anyone know when the new ccleaner is coming out?

    It's like the old saying "Q: When will I see you again?" "A: You'll see me when you see me." So in other words you'll see it when MrG posts it in the Announcements What's New forum area.
  13. A litany of questions

    Get the drivers from the graphics card manufacturer website for the newest driver version. Drivers listed on your PC manufacturer website, Microsoft Update/Windows Update will most likely be late to have the newest version. One important thing though is save an old stable version setup file that way if a particular new version is giving you problems you can always go back. I don't know what the install recommendations are for your display drivers, however with ATI it has always been to uninstall a previous version followed by a reboot before installing a new version. EasyCleaner has a built in space usage tool. It has a pie chart in the middle, and the directory/folder size listed on the right. Like any modern media player yes, it'll stream formats it supports such as mp3, wma, etc. The Shoutcast bit I don't know about.
  14. prob after 1st time running

    I replied in your other identical thread here.
  15. 1. Open Internet Explorer. In the menu click Tools->Internet Options->Advanced tab make sure you have enabled "Use inline Autocomplete" then click OK to save the setting if it isn't already selected. Note: The setting isn't selected with Internet Explorer's default settings. 2. Open CCleaner. In Cleaner Settings->Windows->Internet Explorer uncheck "Autocomplete Form History"
  16. People really suck

    @ cnj Everyone from time to time will mess up on spelling, unless of course they happen to be wearing a Webster Dictionary as a suit complete with a hat and matching tie.
  17. Registry

    Yes it is, also CCleaners registry cleaner isn't as underpowered as some people may think or assume, it is rather powerful and indeed safe.
  18. Forum etiquette

    Don't feed the troll. Ignore him.
  19. Hosts File

    I write-protect mine which isn't necessarily securely locking it which Microsoft Antispyware does (I think). I only started write-protecting mine because a few years back I noticed when visiting a popular website run a member on another now thankfully dead forum we got into an argument about advertising, I gloated too much about blocking ad's and other sites with the HOSTS file and with CookieCop and not two days later visiting his website cause the HOSTS file to get wiped clean as well as my CookieCop blocked sites and cookies. (good thing for backups), that assclown. I make multiple backups, one with SpywareBlaster which encrypts the backup, one being in the same directory as the HOSTS file which I save as HOSTS.BACKUP, and the other being in a zip archive that gets put onto a floppy and a CD for later integration into my other system. If you're talking about antispyware programs adding their blocked site entries to the hosts file, such as Spybot SD I think it can already handle that since it has the option to lock it, while at the same time it will also create a backup of the original if you add it's entries. Edit: Forgot to answer your question. Yes lock it, it can keep you from unknownly getting hijacked or having blocked sites deleted from it.
  20. Forum etiquette

    I saw it very early in the morning.
  21. Forum etiquette

    I already reported him multiple times when I noticed multiple links to one illegal serial code site. It's ironic that he called Mike Rochip a "spammer" all Mike Rochip was wanting to know is if the advise worked, since many people will get something fixed and poof disappear altogether. It actually looks like Mr. Clean is the spammer, along with posting some idiotic b.s. and using abbreviates and slang that seem like nothing more than warez talk. I'm done venting and talking about him and will try to ignore his future posts if he isn't already banned. Edit: Basically ignore him, e.g.; don't feed a troll!
  22. edit profile

    Not really a bit of a crack up for me since Mr Clean likes what seems like warez talk, look at some of his posts and you'll be in abbreviated slang hell real quick.
  23. Google talk

    You can have that added to the winapp2.ini section by visiting this thread and submitting it.
  24. Unable to clean

    The only think I can think of now is to run the built-in Internet Explorer tools that allow you to delete files, etc., personally I would press all of the cleanup tool buttons labeled Delete Cookies, Delete Files, Clear History. And then I'd do exactly what jccomputer stated: "u can also try to run CCleaner in safe mode......."
  25. CCleaner via USB?

    The problem with it is CCleaner writes its own registry entries, it may work off of what is listed in the .ini files however it isn't necessarily solely using the .ini files to function, MrG can correct me on this if I'm wrong. Even if it did work you are then left with registry data for a program that isn't even installed.
