  1. After updating to CCleaner 4.18 I found out the same. This works fine for me. What did you mean? Is that something related to your computer system, or specificly related to CCleaner 4.18? On my system (Vista SP2) the CCleaner settings are not lost with rebooting the system. I think it might be helpful if others would try the same, and would report after rebooting. Thanks.
  2. Thanks very much, Nergal. But I'll just wait for CCleaner v2.30. I suppose v2.30 will be available in about three weeks. That Add programs to winapp2.ini, Add additional programs to CCleaner StickyTopic is very interesting, however. Thanks. Spiff
  3. Hi Nergal, Yes, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\OpenOffice.org\OpenOffice.org\3.2 is in the registry. And yes, the folder \Users\[user]\appdata\Roaming\OpenOffice.org\3\user\registry\data\org\openoffice\Office exists and does contain the file Histories.xcu among others. I suppose the fact that OpenOffice.org 2.3.0 isn't listed in CCleaner may be due to the fact that OOo 3.2.0 preceded CC v2.29.1111 only two weeks? I suppose this will be fixed in the next CCleaner version? Spiff
  4. Hi everyone, Hi Piriform CCleaner bug-busting team, I would like to mention a possible bug in CCleaner. I don't know if it's a known bug. In CCleaner v2.29.1111, I notice that OpenOffice.org 3.2.0 build 9483 is not recognized as an application and that there's no cleaning up as there was with earlier versions. Well, at least this applies to Openoffice.org Writer, the 'Word'-like application in OpenOffice.org. (OS is Windows Vista Ultimate SP2, 32-bit.) If I'm not mistaken, CCleaner v2.28.1091 and earlier versions did clean up after OpenOffice.org. I guess it's a bug in CCleaner v2.29.1111. Or it could be that CCleaner is not recognizing the Februari 12 new OpenOffice.org 3.2.0 version. Which would also be a flaw in CCleaner. I hope this problem can be corrected in the next CCleaner version. Spiff
  5. Hi Andr?, I'm glad you found the CCleaner v2.27 download and that you're happy with that version. (By the way, you can always find previous versions at http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner) Nevertheless, the problem that in CCleaner v2.29.1111 "Wipe Free Space" will not run unless "Wipe MFT Free Space" is checked should preferably be corrected in the next version. Spiff
  6. Yeah, DBAN is okay, of course, but it also gets rid of the OS. In case there's no disc for reinstalling OEM Windows, getting rid of the OS would be a pity if the next user would've liked to use that OEM Windows installation. It's the only reason I can think of not to use something like DBAN but some advanced cleaning and wiping. But when one can provide a Windows disc, using DBAN would be preferable to wiping, you're right. Spiff
  7. Well, when does one ever need to wipe free space, anyhow? And when does one need to use more than one pass? Depending on what's on one's drives, it could be advisable to thoroughly wipe free space when other people have access to those drives. Particularly when you sell a used computer you might want to clean up all personal files and also thoroughly wipe free space to make sure there are no leftovers to be found. Whether 1 pass will be enough or whether there is need for a more advanced wiping method, that's depending on what information was on that computer and depending on how anxious you are about someone using advanced technologies to recover deleted data. When I would sell my computer, I would feel safer if I used some program for advanced wiping. Makes you wonder about what secrets I must harbor on my PC. Okay, but we're getting off topic, I suppose. The issue seems to be that in CCleaner v2.29.1111 "Wipe Free Space" will not run unless "Wipe MFT Free Space" is checked. Spiff
  8. Ah, thanks, Ident. I stand corrected. So there is no option in CCleaner to Wipe Free Space with more than 1 pass? I suppose if I ever need such an option, I'll use the Acronis True Image options for advanced free drive space wiping, or such options in Eraser or in File Shredder. Spiff
  9. I suppose Andretti stumbled upon the same problem as I did. See Andretti's thread: Wipe Free Space
  10. Hi Andr?/ Andretti, In your attached screen-print I see you have "Wipe MFT Free Space" ("MTF Vrije Ruimte wissen") unchecked. I suppose you stumbled upon the same problem as I did: In CCleaner v2.29.1111 "Wipe Free Space" will not run unless "Wipe MFT Free Space" is checked. See my post: "Wipe Free Space" will not run unless "Wipe MFT Free Space" is checked. I suppose it's a bug in CCleaner v2.29.1111. By the way, I see you have Secure Deletion (veilige opschoning) set for Normal file deletion (Normale bestandsopschoning). I wonder if that has any use. With "Wipe Free Space" (Wis vrije ruimte) you want to overwrite files that have already been deleted and are marked as free space. Trying to overwrite free space without Secure Deletion with at least Simple Overwrite (1 pass) won't have any use. Spiff
  11. Hi everyone, Hi Piriform CCleaner bug-busting team, I would like to mention a possible bug in CCleaner. I don't know if it's a known bug. In CCleaner v2.29.1111, I notice that "Wipe Free Space" will not run unless "Wipe MFT Free Space" is checked. (OS is Windows Vista Ultimate SP2, 32-bit.) Another issue is the fact that running "Wipe MFT Free Space" produces quite a lot of hard drive racket. This makes one anxious to use "Wipe MFT Free Space". This "Wipe MFT Free Space" racket was also the case in CCleaner v2.28, but in CCleaner v2.28 at least there was the option to use "Wipe Free Space" without using "Wipe MFT Free Space", which doesn't seem to work in v2.29. "Wipe Free Space" without "Wipe MFT Free Space" worked very smoothly, with no scary hard drive noises at all. But "Wipe MFT Free Space" produces such a racket one wants to hide under the sofa. Considering these problems, the next time I feel the need for wiping free space, I think I'll use the Acronis True Image option to wipe free drive space. Spiff
  12. Forum member OuT found some very interesting information relating this 'Size/Location' issue. See: CCleaner Bug Reporting "Windows Size/Location Cache" bug? CCleaner cleans Size/Location Cache even when option is un-checked - reply by forum member OuT - June 22, 2009 Thanks very much, OuT. Spiff
  13. Thank you very much, OuT. So, it's not a CCleaner bug after all, but a Windows issue. Well, I should've known. I understand the XP Service Pack 3(?) should've fixed this problem, but Vista SP1 did not. Has anyone noticed if Vista SP2 fixed this Windows issue? (I'm waiting for Vista SP2 for the non-English versions.) I checked the list of SP2 fixes, but this particular 'Size/Location' bug doesn't seem to be fixed with Vista SP2. Darn. I'll wait for SP2 anyway, and if it doesn't fix this issue, I suppose I'll apply the Vista workaround that is mentioned on Vistaforums, http://thevistaforums.com/index.php?showtopic=23106. Thanks again. Spiff
  14. Hi Dennis, I didn't expect a solution right away, of course. I would've been very much surprised. But it would be great if the developers will be looking into this problem. Thanks very much. Spiff
  15. Hi everyone, A couple of weeks ago, I posted in the CCleaner Bug Reporting forum. As I got no replies, I'll now post in CCleaner Discussion. I would like to mention a possible bug in CCleaner. I don't know if it's a known bug. I use CCleaner since Februari 2008, but since a few months, since about the last five new CCleaner updates, let's say since about November 2008, there's something different. I use Windows Vista Ultimate SP1, 32 bits. My current version for CCleaner is v2.19.889, the newest version. In CCleaner I don't check the box for "Windows Size/Location Cache", cause I don't want that cleaned, but it seems like CCleaner cleans this nevertheless. Or maybe it's something else that happens? Could it be a Windows bug? Whatever the exact cause, the consequence is that when I use CCleaner, Windows Explorer view-settings are being been reset, and also window sizes for several Windows features (like for instance Windows Update and Windows Network Center) are being reset to standard windows, while I like to open those as Maximized. This happens when I use CCleaner, and this is happening since a few months, since about the last five new updates, since about November 2008. It looks to me as if CCleaner cleans the Windows Size/Location Cache even when this option is un-checked. This is rather annoying, of course, if one doesn't intend resetting these Windows Explorer view settings and window size settings. Is this a know bug, or something new? If it is a CCleaner bug, it would be wonderful if this bug could be located, and if it could be fixed in the next CCleaner version. Thanks very much. Spiff
