  1. Registry command-line parameters

    A response to Sn0wX. Thank you for your “colourful” input, albeit wrong. Registry editors have been around for decades now, and, used properly can restore lost performance in operating systems that get filled with clutter and dead file associations. I have been using registry editors since Microsoft Windows 98SE, and manually editing registries since Windows 3.11. Jumping to present day, I perform many custom mods and customizations to my OS’s and sometimes residual entries are inevitable. Registry cleaners are by no means a magic wand to cure OS ailments, but they certainly have advantages, especially when it comes to uninstalled third-party software/bloatware. Just recently I used nmregscrubpro to correct a file association error and associated icon error with multimedia types due to third-party webcam software. I strongly agree that novice users can cause irreparable damage to an OS, and I’m guessing you might fit into this category, but people such as myself who have been working/modding registries since the early 90’s rely on registry cleaners, especially when heavy usage is the case. Judging by your tone on your other posts, I strongly suggest you close your computer, go out for a smoke and perhaps find some other means to de-stress. Especially when your input is wrong. But keep smiling!
  2. Registry command-line parameters

    It would be at shut down, just as CCleaner (and many other programs) run at shutdown via batch program. This is because my registry undergoes heavy changes each session and as a result, many registry entries have removed value data, invalid file extensions and missing file references. I currently use other registry cleaning software in addition to CCleaner, but if this process could be controller through command-line, it would negate the need for other programs. P.S. I am running Windows 7 Ultimate x64
  3. Currently I am using: start "" "C:\Program Files\CCleaner\CCleaner64.exe" /AUTO /SHUTDOWN from a batch file, I would like a registry command-line option to be added, something like: start "" "C:\Program Files\CCleaner\CCleaner64.exe" /SCANFIX So both, Scan for Issues; and Fix selected Issues... can be automated. start "" "C:\Program Files\CCleaner\CCleaner64.exe" /SCANFIX start "" "C:\Program Files\CCleaner\CCleaner64.exe" /AUTO /SHUTDOWN
  4. Run CCleaner from Context Menu - Not working

    Thanks for the heads-up! I'll keep a lookout for the next release.
  5. Ever since version v.5.45.6611, when I right-click on my Windows 7 Recycle bin and select Run CCleaner, I see CCleaner running in the taskbar icon notification area for only 1 second, then it shuts down without emptying the Recycle Bin. I have to do this as much as 8 times for it to work. Does anyone else have this issue? Until this is resolved, I have gone back to v.5.44.6575.
  6. Tooltip for CCleaner

    ...just a thought... CCleaner should add the option to show tooltips, albeit seasoned used would have no use for it, I believe many users could benefit from having this option.
  7. CCleaner Settings

    With each new release of CCleaner, more and more options are becoming available. It would be a good idea to have the option to Export Settings. That way, you could Backup your preferences (should CCleaner crash - as it has for me), or deploy your settings to multiple machines.
  8. With all due respect to change, sometimes change does not equate progress. If Piriform has chosen to proceed with the Windows 8 Metro look and leave Windows 7 users out-in-the-cold per say; why not just stop support for Windows 7 all-together? After-all, Windows 7 still makes up for more than 80% of Microsoft users world-wide. There is something to be said about the look and feel of a legacy gui, especially for those who are running older operating systems. I for one think that Piriform has come a long way and worked very hard to perfect it’s software, its just a shame that they seem to be ignoring something as simple and easy as A ) adding a classic gui option within the program; or B ) creating a legacy download link There are some other points on how CCleaner could be improved, but that is for another discussion.
  9. I have noticed that lately, Piriform's Defraggler has been having issues reporting correct information with the state of the drive's fragmentation. I have included a screenshot showing the issue. P.S. I should not that I have already disabled VSS while defragmenting, but no change in the incorrect status. Is there a fix for this yet?
  10. Defraggler and Windows UAC

    System OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64 (SP1) Software: Defraggler 2.17.898 (64-bit) Issue: I am running CCleaner 4.11.4619 (64-bit) and when the program starts, there is no UAC for CCleaner, but when I run Defraggler the UAC pops up. What script does CCleaner use to bypass the Windows UAC so I can make a "No UAC" shortcut for Defraggler too?
  11. More details for new users

    I think that new users would benefit from a more expansive description of what it is they are cleaning. Perhaps Piriform could use my mock-up image as a suggestion. P.S. CCleaner is already awesome, but maybe it can be even more! or
  12. CCleaner PC Shutdown

    Hello again Alan_B Again, thanks for the info, despite your condescending attitude. Obviously people who write in for technical input are at different levels of computer knowledge. Only arrogance assumes otherwise – as by your tone. Your belittling those who are trying to learn is not appreciated! As far as Windows is concerned, if you had bothered to properly read my “original” post, you would see that I am running Windows XP Pro SP3 and Windows 7 Ultimate SP1, so your remarks to Windows Home are irrelevant! As far as your suggestion to run third-party software, that makes no sense. What you’re suggesting is to work around the problem without addressing it. “My hand hurts so I’ll use my other” is just sloppy computing. Any real diagnostician will get to the heart of the problem and address it, not dance around it. Thankfully I came across a blog with a Microsoft technician that fixed the issue, yes fixed! In case you are so inclined to educate yourself of how, I suggest you learn about the Microsoft Windows NT 3.51 Resource Kit Best of luck with whatever it is you think you do!
  13. CCleaner PC Shutdown

    Thanks for the reply Alan_B Why? Are the commands in an .exe altered from a .bat file? I was under the impression that it remains the same, only that it becomes an executable. I’ve been doing some reading and came across an article found at: http://www.beyondlogic.org/solutions/shutdown/shutdown.htm It states that the Windows Shutdown.exe may not actually turn off your ACPI compliant computer. If this is the case, I assume that CCleaner.exe /SHUTDOWN is expected to not work on most computer systems. I'm just trying to find a way to run CCleaner and power down the pc without coming home 10 hours later and finding the PC still on. Any suggestions?
  14. CCleaner PC Shutdown

    I’ve been using CCleaner for a few years now and think it’s great. I only have one issue with the program that I can’t resolve. If I create a batch program containing the following parameters: start /wait ccleaner.exe /AUTO /SHUTDOWN it doesn’t always shut down the computer. First I thought this may be an issue with Windows, but this issue occurs on several of my computers from my 2 Dell desktops (WinXP) to my 2 Toshiba laptops (WinXP) and my HP laptop (Win7). I’ve experimented with other types of batch programs including: rem STARTS THE CCLEANER PROGRAM AND CLEANS SYSTEM start /wait ccleaner.exe /AUTO rem STOPS THE EXPLORER.EXE PROCESS taskkill /IM explorer.exe /f rem TERMINATES THE SESSION OF WINDOWS WITH FORCE SHUTDOWN start shutdown.exe /s /f This batch program also doesn’t shut down the computer because the process seems to halt right after CCleaner runs. I’m wondering if my 2 programs I use to convert my .bat programs to .exe might be the culprit. They are: bat2exe and Quick Batch File Compiler If not, can anyone suggest a fix for the above program parameters. Thanks.
  15. Windows System Restore Points

    My Windows XP Pro SP3 recently faced a sever virus attack. The virus and script that ran did considerable damage despite having Microsoft Security Essentials and Malwarebytes installed. After the attack, a fake Security Centre appeared and completely bypassed and disabled both MSE and Malwarebytes. In addition, it also deleted all the System Restore Points. That is the reason I am writing. Since anti-virus can't protect 100% of all systems all the time, can a software be developed to save and export Windows System Restore Points to a USB drive or to DVD? That way when System Restore points have been compromised, the saved copies can later be imported back into the Windows environment so the system can once again be restored. That's my idea.
