    Cheers Joe.

    I thought I would would give it a spin against my WinTP installation, using the default settings it can reclaim 407MB of data.

    It did confuse though me when it said it had to close down Firefox. Firefox?, I ain't running Firefox! I am running Palemoon which is Firefox based but surely it should at least get the browser name right!


    ETA Joe, as an administrator of this site I imagine you can see the browser I am using to post here, out of curiosity what does it show up as?

    We actually don't have access to that info, at least not any info that is readily available from the online users list, for example.

    Cheers Rui,

    When I was admin on a phpBB based site that info was easily available just by looking at the list of online users. It's probably forum software specific.

    Not to worry anyway as I have already uninstalled it because if it can't identify the current browser it gives me no confidence in it's other detection rates.

    From what I can tell the best we can do is display the User Agent string from the header.

    Browni, have you heard of Auslogics Registry Cleaner and Auslogics Drive-Defrag? I've used both for some time now. No problems that I know of where caused by them. http://www.auslogics.com/en/software/ -- both free and fee are in there. I've been with free. You might want to add Unchecky [unchecky.com?]. Many free software packages come with extras, ensure the click-here boxes are un-clicked by you in the custom or advanced installs.

    Yesterday I was going to tell y'all about the new CCleaner but, saw Joe had so cool . Anyway, just thought I'd mention a couple little things about CCleaner, couple of suggestions.

    1. Uncheck the Jumplists item
    2. Some of you by now know that I, as an IT Pro, do recommend 'cleaning' but, do not recommend messing w/ the Registry. That said, suggest remembering the name is CCleaner... just use the cleaner function & not the Registry button.
    3. If you want to remove a Windows.old folder CCleaner does a fine job of it. IF you have one (windows.old folder) there is an item for it under the Advanced section... check it & Run CCleaner.

    Cheers,
    Drew

    Drew, I amend your comments by adding that registry cleaning can be safely done, if one ensures settings are default, not aggressive. Over the years, I have safe-cleaned registry of un-needed entries, etc. System Restore points and/registry backups are fairly good fallbacks. And, having ext HD-based images [via Norton Ghost, now Acronis True Image] allows for a little bit of experimenting with registry cleaning. I tell others: avoid registry compacting! Problematic.
