Does anybody else use CCleaner?
Beware. There is an update, but the user terms state that if you agree to the terms, that you're agreeing to download the yahoo tool bar.

I canceled the download and then deleted the update.

Yes, that's right. There is not an option on the new update for a custom install. In order to continue the update, you must agree to the user terms, which state -- in the text -- that doing so will install the toolbar.

Re: Does anybody else use CCleaner?
Love the CCleaner & always have been able to turn down the toolbar option. It also wants to install Google Chrome browser, didn't take that either.

Go get their "Defraggler" defrag tool too - it seems to do a much better job than the built in Windows one.

I ran that CCleaner on one of the computers at work and it took out 3400 MB of gunk - can you believe it?

After reading your post, I went back to see if this was true. You CAN untick the box for the toolbar. You're right and I was wrong.

You don't have to be so mean about it.

While we are on the subject of computer crap, can someone please share with me:

1. The use of the file: pagefile.sys

2. The reason the file is freakin' 1.5 GB yes, that's GB on my system

and

3. How to clear it out and prevent it from getting that large again?

TIA!

Re: Does anybody else use CCleaner?
Yeah, CCleaner and Defraggler are both good programs.

If you don't want to install extra toolbars or any other bundled software, then pay attention while installing and untick those options.

And if you ditch Windows and move on to Linux, then you don't have to worry about bundled software ever again.

Paging file file can be dynamic or set to a static size (this includes a nice performance boost).

As for how big, it depends on how much ram you have.

For example, with 1 gig ram, set it to 3000mb min and max.

If you have 4 gigs of ram, set it 4096mb min and max.

The rest depends.....

The only time you should "remove " the paging file is if you have between 4-8 gigs of ram...yeah...seriously...

Hope this helps.
