First image shows what CCleaner looks like when you start the app:

Here you can find more info and a download link to Macrium Reflect.

Well, thanks a TON !
Yesterday, I looked for it on the web, and didn't find anything helpful...
Thanks, and very nicely explained !!
EDIT: Which program did you use for the image-editing (like, for adding the arrows and text stuff...)?

Sarah, Nice tut.

Hatryst, Here is the link for the last free version of Fast Stone Capture: http://www.aplusfreeware.com/c.....pture.html - else it costs $19.95.
A similar option with equal features is Jing ( http://www.techsmith.com/jing/ ). I like that because you can program it to a function key for easy access.

What a fine job. Bookmarked, ready for the next enquiry regarding registry boosters/cleaners/optimisers!
And a nice addition from Scott.

@SJ , what a easy, simple, straightforward visual, to using this very useful tool, for helping keep computers running smoothly.

Thank you for your time in explaining, the processes so clearly, now hopefully, even a very new comer(there are still many out there)! will not be scared and can be reassured and pointed to this sticky, including Scott's addition.
Brilliant....

Doing something for HTG is always such a joy - all the positive input has given me a huge smile to start my day :D

And thanks Scott for those additions. I knew about CCenhancer, but didn't have the link at hand, so I skipped it ;)
I didn't know about the flash cookies. I've added that, but need to add a remark:
you have to add the exclusion first and then the inclusions, otherwise settings.sol does get deleted anyway!
