    Hello guys :D

    I've been using IE all this time, but now I'm downloading Firefox.

    However, some people have had problems with Firefox and CCleaner.

    Is there some other cleaner I can use instead (free)? o_O

    Thanks for your help :)

    Regards,
    Firecat :D

    I've never had any problems with CCleaner and Firefox, but you can also try using Windows Cleaner 2005 - http://www.softes.org/

    Hi Firecat,

    There is a problem with Firefox and CCleaner, that occurs from time to time and I am not sure what is the exact set of circumstances. However, I have found that if I clear Firefox cache (under Options), when this problem occurs, it clears it all up. For me it is a very minor nuisance and I do not think about it anymore. It is probably possible to avoid the problem by not deleting a specific set of files when cleaning, but I never pursued it, since it is a very minor nuisance. Maybe somewhere has the answer to the issue.


    Give it a try and see. I don't think you will find it much of a problem.

    Rich

    No problem here using CCleaner and Firefox, have used both for a long time. I just untick what I don't want CCleaner to remove.

    Cheers :D

    OK I tried the Moox builds and I must say I absolutely love them! Thanks Notok! :)

    Everything's even faster now!

    BTW, I downloaded the M3 build, thats what is right for an Athlon64 - Am I right?

    I know that. What I mean to say is, processors that support SSE2 are backward compatible with SSE1, so if I install an M2 build on a Pentium 4 or Athlon64 it should work just fine right? o_O

    Hello Firecat, CCleaner has a setting for Firefox under "Applications". :)
    Screenshot uploaded but must have been refused.
