  1. It's been years since I worked on this problem but, if I recall correctly, Word and Outlook are connected because in Outlook you have Tools > Options > Mail Format > "Use Microsoft Office Word 2003 to edit e-mail messages" as an option. I'm not sure if this has to be enabled to connect the two apps but looking at a user who does, I see keys and values such as: HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Word\Data|ToolbarsWordMail HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Word\Options\OutlookEditor I also vaguely remember that HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Word\Data|Settings appeared to be involved. Instead of using the CCleaner "Exclude" method, I used a modified winapp.ini file with RegKey10=HKCU deactivated. Since the winapp.ini doesn't seem to have changed any code for Office 2003, I don't know why the newer versions would behave differently. The only thing I can think of is that the newer versions have code related to the Office 2007 Compatibility add-in.
  2. If I recall correctly, in Office 2003, some Outlook and Word settings are stored in the same registry key. Try protecting RegKey10=HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Word\Data|Settings
  3. Can't turn off pop up blocker

    Are you running any other apps with blockers, e.g., anti-virus / internet security software, browser add-ons such as Google Toolbar? BTW, unless you thought this was somehow a CCleaner bug, this is was posted in the wrong area.
  4. Keeping Cookies for Favorites

    In IE8, you can set the browser to clear all cookies on exit except those from Favorites; then untick Cookies in CCleaner. I don't know if Firefox and Safari have similar features.
  5. wiping free space with erasers

    How much free space do you have on the drive you are wiping? What is the write speed for the drive?
  6. The time it takes to wipe free space is largely determined by the write speed of the drive and has very little to do with CPU or RAM usage. Unless you have very little freespace on your drive, 3 hours for 35 passes doesn't sound right. 35 passes on any significant portion of a terabyte drive should take much longer.
  7. Cookies/Deleting/Options

    If they are Flash Cookies, you have to select Applications > Multimedia > Adobe Flash Player.
  8. Problems with Computer Programs

    Personally, I wouldn't run CCleaner on a seriously damaged system. If I had the problems you describe, I would back up my data to another drive and then try System Restore. If that failed, I would do a complete format C:\ and reinstall Windows and apps. Others may have different suggestions.
  9. Problems with Computer Programs

    What operating system are you using? What versions of the affected programs? Did you have these problems before installing and running CCLeaner? When you say you "ran ccleaner 2.24 on my computer and I wanted an expert to read the log it and tell me what to delete or fix", do you mean you just ran "Analyze" on the Cleaner tab and/or "Scan for Issues" on the Registry tab? ... or did you use "Run Cleaner" and/or "Fix Issues"? Did you change any settings in CCleaner?
  10. Office not detected in Applications

    CCleaner supports Office 97, Office XP, Office 2003 and Office 2007, but (for some reason) not Office 2000. You could try writing a winapp2.ini entry.
  11. Download Help Needed

    Could another application be connecting to the internet in the background (e.g., automatic update for one of your programs, e-mail client send/receive, etc.) and competing for bandwidth? This wouldn't explain why you could download the other versions, but it might just have been lucky/unlucky timing.
  12. New External

    Lumps: I think you're correct ... if you by-pass the Computer Management console. It appears that is what imposes the 32GB limit as a parameter. I found some articles saying you can force a format beyond 32GB by running format from a command line with other parameters. I never pursued it since I cannot accept the 4GB file size limit.
  13. New External

    I believe you have that reversed ... Windows XP formats to NTFS. I'm not sure about XP Pro but XP Home only supports formatting to NTFS. Winapp2.ini: Use NTFS if you intend to store large files, e.g., video. With FAT32, maximum file size is 4GB minus 1 byte. EDIT: I should have said "... XP Home only supports formatting to NTFS if the partition is greater than 32GB". I forgot that FAT32 is an option for small partitions.
  14. IE Favorites and Alphebitizing

    Hey! We Canadians fight the good fight, and we're on the front lines ... besieged by American television and print media. And the beer, the godawful stuff they call beer ... a clear violation of the conventions against biological and chemical weapons.
  15. IE Favorites and Alphebitizing

    Leadfingers: As Dennis said but check the spelling ... depending on the system language setting, it may be Favorites (the US spelling without the "u"). Dennis: I'm curious. If your system language setting is English-UK, does it name the folder and registry key "Favourites"? In Canada, we get caught in the middle ... using English-Canada results in the folder and registry key being spelled "Favorites" but spell check uses "favourites". I wish Exclude Registry would open a browser (similar to Folders and Files) so you could select rather than have to keyboard the entry.
