    Thumb.db ?

    Is there an echo in here?

    Thumb.db ?

    They can be safely deleted. You can also disable their creation via an open Explorer window by clicking: Tools->Folder Options->View->Do not cache thumbnails Edit: All thumbs.db files can be removed using EasyCleaner so long as you input thumbs.db into the Unnecessary files Find area.
  3. I wondered why you all of a sudden stopped posting. Welcome back!
  4. The only thing I can think of is to run Check Disk and allow it to do a surface scan. You can do this by: 1. Opening My Computer. 2. Right clicking a hard disk, and selecting Properties. 3. Click the Tools tab, and then click the Check Now button. 4. Check mark all Check Disk options, and when asked to check on the next system restart select Yes, and then reboot. There's of course no gaurantee this will fix the problem, however it's a start.
  5. MrG wrote about it restarting here.
  6. You should've used the suggestions thread located at: http://forum.CCleaner.com/index.php?showtopic=4 since this is for bugs, not suggestions.

    thumb drives

    It was probably a case of using the browser back and forward buttons! Everybody makes mistakes.

    IE 7 pics!

    Would you yourself trust it replacing the resources and modding/replacing critical system files?
  9. Wait, you are using Windows XP aren't you?
  10. 1. Copy the code and paste it into an empty Notepad window, and save it as a registry entry file on the desktop or wherever, such as for example (use the quotes): "directory.reg" 2. Make a System Restore point! I don't know if it will fix the problem or not. 3. Double click the registry entry file: directory.reg 4. I recommend that you either log off, or restart Windows and then see if it fixed the problem. If it didn't fix the problem you can use the System Restore point to put things back the way they were and we can continue to try and figure out a solution.
  11. Make a System Restore point before using the .reg file! Note: Name the file directory.reg. A note to everyone else, the file is only for Newhotness.

    IE 7 pics!

    Out of the new screenshots I'm surprised they haven't updated the icons for IE7, if they want it to look as polished as it's main rival Firefox they're going to need to update some icons -- like all of them.

    Ad-Aware SE

    If hyperthreading was an issue I'm sure we'd see more complaints about it.

    Opera 8

    Same here, also Spybot SD's Immunize tool includes permanent blocking protection for Opera. Firefox since its inception (that's every version) has always crashed my whole WinXP Pro system with a stop error, hence I can't use it so I stick with Opera and Mozilla Suite both of which have never brought down my whole system.

    Freeware!

    Tau Analyzer http://www.true-audio.com Information taken from the setup info window: True Audio Analyzer - is a next generation of a popular AuCDtect, the program for determining the authenticity of musical CD records, and predicting is it an original studio record or a reconstruction from a lossy encoded data (for example MP3). Tau Analyzer works directly with CD and has a some of additional functions such as a Spectrum and Frequency analizers, ATIP and ISRC data readers, etc. Please note: Tau Analyzer does not provide an absolutely warranty in results of detection. Sometimes the program can show a wrong result for single track (please see Testing Results and algorithm details at our site). Thus, to make sure you should check all of the CD contents for more trustable CD conclusion, except some special cases. ---------- False Statement: The help documentation states that in the unregistered version you can only analyse the first 2 tracks of the disc instead of all of them. I've found this to be completely false, it analyses all tracks. Analysis Process: The analysis process takes some time as each track is scanned. Guessing: The software can be fooled into guessing an audio CD as an original (CDDA) if you've used high quality and high bitrate source files such as high bitrate mp3's, mpc's, ogg's, etc. However, tracks derived from low quality and low bitrate files are more easily detected. Status Column (Meanings): CDDA = The software thinks the audio CD is an original (see Guessing listed above) MPEG = The software thinks the audio CD is a fake (derived from mp3's, mpc's, ogg's, etc.) UNKN = The software doesn't know if the audio CD is an original or a fake.

  18. This is a list of fake Windows patch websites and other suspicious websites that I collected over some time. The list was derived when I used to use Sygate Personal Firewall. They can be blocked in web browsers, and the hosts file. Blocking these websites "may" prevent some unsolicited pop-ups, and "may" prevent some malware.

  19. The only person I think who can properly debug it and fully understand what's going on is the CCleaner developer MrG.
  20. You may need to restart Windows after installation. If restarting Windows doesn't help try this: 1. Uninstall it. 2. Empty the web browser cache for the web browser you're using and then restart Windows. 3. Download the setup file again and reinstall. You said you installed VBRun6, however did you install the most recent version here: Visual Basic Run-Time v6.0 Service Pack 6.

    Files scanned

    ...also some scanners only count an archive (.zip, .cab, etc) as one file scanned, whereas some count the files inside an archive as individual files.
  22. Cleaner: Display a list of files (in-use, or locked) that couldn't be deleted, such as those in the Temp dirs, etc. Cleaner: The ability to remove in-use or locked files on the next reboot. Recognition of running programs such as web browsers, etc., and ignoring their cleaning process while they're running. Probably would need a message to state such and such program was ignored because it's resident.
  23. Run ScanDisk or ChkDsk, depending upon what OS you have. This should take care of disk errors. If you're using WinXP you can change the behaviour of the power button so that it doesn't cause a bad shutdown.

    .ogg to mp3

    That definately beats encoding a whole album to one mp3, or worse having to edit multiple source .wav tracks with custom fade-out's and fade-in's to separate each track before encoding.

    Ad-Aware SE

    Perhaps running Ad-Aware in Safe Mode will work since there's only essential stuff loaded that the OS needs, which excludes the loading of spyware.
