  1. Speccy v1.01.132 on Windows 2000 Professional SP4. Now under Network, Speccy is claiming "You are not connected to the Internet". How come? Of course I am connected to the Internet, via LAN. How else would I post here?
  2. Windows 7 x64 SP1. I have a retractable taskbar (auto-hide). When CCleaner 5.0 is open, moving the pointer to the bottom of the screen will not bring up the task bar. No other application does that. Anyone else experiencing the same?
  3. CCleaner 5.0 works fine on all my XP-SP3 and Windows 7 systems.
  4. 5.0 UI is a step backwards

    All that counts for me is the functionality; I really don't give a damn about the UI. It's not like we are looking at that software all day long; I use it once a day before shutdown. I have no problem using it; it works just the same way as with the old UI (but it does seem faster!).
  5. What's in a name?

    It doesn't, actually. I just tried to download CCleaner 5.0, and the download link http://download.piriform.com/ccsetup500.exe gave me a 'Server not found' message on all browsers. I actually had to go to Filehippo to download the installer.
  6. After running CCleaner with MS AntiMalware checked, MSE will complain that the computer is insecure, and that a scan is required. This happens even if a scan has run shortly before CCleaner was run. Related discussions: http://forum.pirifor...showtopic=36877 http://forum.pirifor...showtopic=35577 I have done a bit of research and testing; the results are all in the first of the above topics. On Windows 7 (and likely Vista as well) the following folders get deleted: %PROGRAMDATA%\Microsoft\Microsoft Antimalware\Scans\History\Results\Quick %PROGRAMDATA%\Microsoft\Microsoft Antimalware\Scans\History\Results\Resource %PROGRAMDATA%\Microsoft\Microsoft Antimalware\Scans\History\Results\System On Windows XP the following folders get deleted: %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\Microsoft\Microsoft Antimalware\Scans\History\Results\Quick %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\Microsoft\Microsoft Antimalware\Scans\History\Results\Resource %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\Microsoft\Microsoft Antimalware\Scans\History\Results\System The folders Quick and System contain information about performed scans; Quick = quick scans, System = full scans. Resource contains information about all other MSE activities. For MSE to remember when the last scan was performed, the contents of the Quick and System folders are used. In order for MSE to know when the last scan was performed, the newest entry in either Quick or System must be retained. All data in the Resource folder can safely be deleted. I am sure that all MSE users will be very happy that they can safely check MS AntiMalware again, without MSE starting to complain shortly after every CCleaner run. Thank you for a great product, and thank you for listening to your users.
  7. Brilliant video!

    Make sure you watch it in full screen mode! http://youtu.be/uFxnBrO9n7o
  8. Brilliant video!

    You think they would drink out of it if they did...?
  9. ? vs CCleaner

    The thing about "registry errors" is that they are mostly unused entries. They do not do any harm, nor will they slow down your computer, nor will they take up more than a few bytes of disk space. My advice: just forget about "registry cleaning". Even with CCleaner. Modern Windows systems can very much take care of the registry.
  10. Live map of Wikipedia changes.

  11. The same thing is still occurring: ran an MSE scan ran CCleaner with MS Antimalware checked; it deleted the three folders Quick, Resource, and System shortly thereafter the MSE tray icon turned yellow-orange, with the balloon "your system is potentially unprotected" (or something similar)
  12. amazing photo

    Thanks, Hazelnut - I knew there was a way to delete old images; I just was not sure where exactly to look. I deleted a bunch of old pictures (that were there, somewhere, but I could not view them anyway). Here is another lenticular cloud over Mount Fuji, seen from above. This time it's summer, obviously
  13. amazing photo

    That was the last photo I could post

    Another amazing photo; no birds this time... Lenticular clouds hanging over mount Fuji [borrowed from Facebook]
  15. Document recovery

    What exactly means "machine language"; can you post a screenshot? Most likely the file association launches a different program than it should. With rich text document you mean .rtf, or is it .doc / .docx? What program opens it?
  16. Register break under Windows 8

    Of course you wouldn't backup to SSD, but an external HD.
  17. Uninstall old version first?

    If you uninstall, you may lose your settings. I have never uninstalled.
  18. Why is Google.com both UP and DOwn

    I had similar troubles yesterday, all day long - every site was unreachable, except for Google and Gmail.
  19. amazing photo

    Another interesting picture - photography or design? (picked up from Facebook)
  20. Avast! has gone metro

    And AVG 2013
  21. Avast! has gone metro

    Apparently not; look at the new DriverMax 7
  22. amazing photo

    The German version http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alpendohle has a photo of a bird in flight; also a video of a whole flock (further down).
  23. Changing Password

    Also what exactly means "problem"?
  24. Windows 8 - Regitry Error [FIX]

    I have difficulties to accept that copying a 32-bit dll to the 64-bit folder can be a "solution" for anything.
  25. amazing photo

    "mountain jackdaw" is the Google translation for "Bergdohle", the name of a common bird in the mountains of Switzerland. However, looking it up in Wikipedia, the English name there is Alpine Chough; see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alpine_Chough
