Re: Ccleaner

Last time I had it, I was sold to secure bypass or something. When you run it does it run registry as well?

A friend has computer problems and I wanna try to fix it for her.

Re: Ccleaner

I've used it for years without any troubles. This is what I do:

Click "Run Cleaner" - This gets rid of temporary files, anything un-needed and stuff in the recycle bin.

On left hand tab click "registry". Then click "scan for issues". It just scans the registry for any unused extensions and other stuff not needed

Then click "Fix selected issues". It will ask if you want to backup changes to the registry. Personally I've never done this with no problems, but do it if you want to be safe.

Thats pretty much it!

Re: Ccleaner

What kind of problems is your friend having? Ccleaner is probably not going to fix them at least not entirely.

So really nothing to edit? I remember before I had to edit it and put secure, 1 pass and crap.

I did that and got quite a lot, and what surprised me, HP Advisor (the thing that I can't even use now) had about 10 errors when I scanned it. What also interested me it brought up some AOX files and I saw N64. Any clues on the AOX part, Kong?

Where is the back ups stored? Thank you!

From what I found out, ever since she had her laptop she picked up a nasty habit of just turning it off by the power button (trust me I explained to her how big of an issue that can cause xD) for about 6 months, and sometimes the net hangs on it (white pages) while her ipod is lightning fast. It gets to the point where her computer goes unresponsive, and I was thinking it might've been something related to registry/error data created.

Re: Ccleaner

Because the Internet is fast on ipad and not on the laptop, try installing a different browser and see if it has the same problems or not. If it doesn't then it probably means something is wrong with the original browser. If it does then it probably means something is wrong with the computer and not the browser.

Because she didn't shut the computer off safely, run chkdsk.
To do so in Win7:
Open my computer.
Right click each hard drive.
Select the tools tab.
Click Check Now.
Put a check mark in both boxes.
Click Start.
If asked to Schedule Disk Check, click yes.
Reboot computer.
The next reboot will take a while.

It is important that she does the check disk right away. Waiting will increase the chances of the hard drive dying soon.
