Beta

Postby ego » Fri Jun 24, 2005 10:12 am

Steve......
Just downloaded and installed 4.5b4......but before I ran it for the first time I performed your regedit tweak to keep 4.5b4 from scanning my secondary hard drive (I had asked you about this earlier via the old email forum). For those that build their own systems and have more than one hard drive you can set 4.5b4 to scan ONLY drives you want scanned.
Use CleanUp Help. Under the Index tab type drive. Then click on Display at the bottom of the page. This will take you to the "drives, scanning" information page. It is here Steve describes a simple registry tweak to tell CleanUp 4.5b4 what drives (s) to scan.
Incidentally Steve, I ran RegSeeker right after performing this tweak and everything is performing as per normal.
Yes, I know CleanUp does some registry scanning, but RegSeeker is more in depth.......they compliment each other.
Thanks for all your efforts Steve....you should know many of us out here in cyberworld TRULY appreciate all your work and dedication.

Beta installation

Postby seamaiden » Wed Jun 29, 2005 10:02 am

Which is better (recommended)?

1. Uninstall CleanUp! 4.0 first and then install the 4.5 beta
2. Install the beta right overtop of the current version

seamaiden,

Either approach will work fine. However, to see some of the new features - like for "first time users" - you should uninstall any previous version first.

If you install over the top of an older version, then you have the benefit of preserving your options settings.

Microsoft Antispyware (Beta 1)

Postby ego » Tue Jul 12, 2005 11:36 pm

Steve........
Am using Microsoft Antispyware (Beta 1) which loads into the system tray on start up. Periodically I do updates and get current spyware definitions. Lately, using CleanUp Beta 4.5 beta 4 I noticed something weird. It seems to delete spyware definition updates....these to be exact:
http://download.spynet.com/ASDefinition ... anData.cat - deleted
http://download.spynet.com/ASDefinition ... onData.cat - deleted
http://download.spynet.com/ASDefinition ... atData.cat - deleted
http://download.spynet.com/ASDefinition ... anData.gcz - deleted
http://download.spynet.com/ASDefinition ... onData.gcz - deleted

Puts me in a predicament: Run CleanUp and lose the current spyware definitions, or keep the current spyware definitions and not use CleanUp!!
Any ideas?

If those lines were copied and pasted from the CleanUp! log then you have nothing to worry about. CleanUp! is only deleting those URLs from your URL history; it is not necessarily deleting the files themselves.

If you can post the relevant pieces from the CleanUp! log that would be a help.

Spyware f/u

Postby ego » Wed Jul 13, 2005 10:04 am

Steve.......
Here is what happens: I update MS Antispyware to get current spyware definitions; then I run CleanUp; and when I go back to get current spyware definitions MS Antispyware downloads the same definitions it just downloaded. Seems CleanUp is erasing those definitions??
Yes, those files I indicated previously were from a CleanUp run.
Does this help?

CleanUp Beta and MS Antispyware

Postby ego » Thu Jul 14, 2005 12:01 pm

Steve........
Thought maybe your beta was causing the problem, so I uninstalled it and installed CleanUp 4.0 (yes, I did a thorough RegSeeker run inbetween)...
After getting 4.0 in I ran it once........then AGAIN downloaded updated spyware definitions (see prev reply)..........then I ran 4.0. It too removed the following files: (copied and pasted from CleanUp log)
http://download.spynet.com/ASDefinition ... anData.cat - deleted
http://download.spynet.com/ASDefinition ... onData.cat - deleted
http://download.spynet.com/ASDefinition ... atData.cat - deleted
http://download.spynet.com/ASDefinition ... anData.gcz - deleted
http://download.spynet.com/ASDefinition ... onData.gcz - deleted
Now I will have to YET AGAIN download the updated spyware definitions. Should I quit using CleanUp altogether???
What am I doing wrong???

These entries in the CleanUp! log indicate that it is deleting the fact that you visited those URLs. It is not deleting the files download from those locations. So, you should be fine. :)

If you really want to be sure, try to find out where the definition files you mentioned get saved. Then run CleanUp! and make sure they haven't been deleted. However, note that deleting the URL is not the same as deleting the files themselves.

well well

Postby ego » Fri Jul 15, 2005 12:23 am

Steve........
Did as you suggested.........found current spyware definitions in MS Antispyware file..........watched it as I ran CleanUp.........files stayed put.
So, since I am only deleting the URL's hows come Microsoft keeps trying to replace the files that already exist?
Guess I had better reload your Beta.......
Thanks for the quick response......
