Re: ccleaner new version

 

Thats been that way for ages, piriform know about that, but who knows when it will be actually fixed, they say they have redone the checkboxes, no change as of yet sadly.

Its why I have the general purpose ini file.

What's up with ccleaner? I've got an update and now when in the

removed. Has anyone else seen this?

Thanks.

Hi!
Thanks for the info below about CCleaner 5.46, with the Dropbox link to the

new .ini file.
Talking of links, would it be possible to post one here where we can easily

get the portable version of CCleaner, please? When my current portable
version tells me there is an update, I'm taken to the Piriform site when I
hit the "yes" button, and I can't find a download link for portable CCleaner

there. Doing a Google search brings up different results every time, and the

sites in the Google search results can be confusing anyway.
Thanks in advance for your reply.
Bye for now!
From Clare

Hi all portable ccleaner users.

Here is the updated ini file if you don't want to bother with it.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/m15toyhbsmdy5fb/ccleaner.ini?dl=1

For those that want to know what is changed.

options/privacy needs to be reset because the preffs string is different.

The only other thing I have done is clear out the version strings that
existed in there and rebuilt the ics program version string data.

For all the rest, while you can get the slim installer now I have
portable it just works.

Things that have been changed include fixing the privacy setting issues
with extra info added for that option including more datashheets for it.

The adjusting of the monitering so it says smart cleaning instead to
explain what it does.

If you turn off smart cleaning ccleaner shouldn't stay loaded at startup
anymore.

There is supposed to be a checkbox revamp and some more descriptions but
I have yet to see any change, and to be honest now that I can use
portable easily enough I don't know if I will ever go back to installed
ever again.

Re: ccleaner new version

 

The reason I don't include the enhancer file is it will sow down the system if you use all its options.

Below is the link for the enhancer file, which will allow more cleaning options and otherwise. It should work on portable versions. I've also included a link to Puran Utilities, an accessible revo uninstaller alternative. Puran is not portable. I believe it is open source though? Not sure. Puran is also like a system mechanic, but accessible. It hasn't been updated in a while though, but I have yet to find a program as good.

Re: ccleaner new version

 

Well the cookies line will repopulate.

I tried!

As for the avast cookies having them there will stop some adds coming aparently.

As for your mailto entries, since my system is a system without any office program, and since I don't doodle with the applications I can't fix everything.

The ini file is a general configuration file made for a general windows system.

You will have to customise things manually if your configuration is different, maybe I should add this as a disclaimer or something.

I don't include everything, yes I could but it slows things down.

If you think you need to modify for yourself etc then you can do so.

I doubt that its the case.

Adds are usually just spammy adds and I wouldn't trust them.

As for the portable version, its been the same version for ages and ages, that means your installed version from official ccleaner site, is the latest always and you can get it from the builds page.

And even if it became an avast product its not that bad as long as you still had portable.

Look at sophos, look at malwarebytes, malware bytes is a sophos product.

So it can work.

I will not install it but even so ccleaner is still good.

Re: NVDA PORTABLE

 

I agree its hard.

However with something like a web brouser, it should be able to run anywhere you want without issue.

This is not a specialised program, thunderbird works in quantom mode but I only use email, I know the addons panel doesn't work but I don't need that, it is a bit slower and can be problematic at times.

On 9/2/2018 9:07 PM, Brian's Mail list account via Groups.Io wrote:
I do often think that one of the perennial problems for programmers is that of making an optimised version for all situations.
I do agree that browsers like the New Firefox is, in my view a backward step in accessibility, and also nvda though faster in it now than it was is also less fast on older browsers, not all but some.
Only the programmers might know why, but I suspect that decisions have to be made about what version of code is used for a given situation, and here it might be that things get slowed down.


I think it perfectly fair comment if you have limited access to modern versions of Windows, that when you find a working version of NVDA that you stay with it. After all I do still have some XP machines running the older versions and they are quite happy and why worry?


The fact is, time and tech do move on and so making something work is a constant catch up game, since we effectively get a complete new windows every half year, which personally I find ridiculous , but that is a whole other discussion for another place. Myself, just as with XP if it continues to suit my needs and does not die, I shall be using windows 7 until forced to change for my main machine for my charity work as it is after all the years of updates much more reliable than a brand new version of windows 10 every six months can ever be.

hi.
i always follow new features, changes and bug fixes in different
versions of nvda.
i believe nvda since its version 2017.3 and later, has focus on
improving windows ten support, microsoft edge, braille and quantum
versions of firefox which i dont need any of them.
i wished to use 2017.2 which has some important features for me, but
unfortunately it is slow in web browsers, and even two or three times
made my keyboard and explorer unusable and made me to forceably
shutdown my system using power key!
the only version that sutes my needs and i did not experience such
problems on it, both using windows xp (my favorite windows version
forever) and even testing with windows seven, is nvda version 2017.1.

i realy love it, very fast and responsive, without hang or making
keyboard and system unusable and i wish and decided to keep and use
nvda 2017.1 forever by the grace of God!

  Hi,

  Gene is correct, although I should emphasize that 2018.3 (at least in beta
form) will bring more than improved support for Windows 10. Some of the
other features include automatic braille display detection, announcing
grammar errors in Chrome if exposed by web authors, support for BrailleNote
QT (my work), improved list of languages in NVDA's general settings panel,
and a whole bunch of changes for developers.

  Do you have service pack 1 installed on the Windows machine?  that is
necessary.  As far as I know, NVDA still supports machines withService Pack
1.



  How important is it for you to run a current version.  While I don't
follow what's new in NVDA closely since I have no need of what has been
changed, my impression is that for awhile, most changes are to keep the
program current and improve accessibility in Windows 10. Therefore, you
might do well running the last version that doesn't require service pack 1
if you can't or don't want to upgrade the machine.

Re: ccleaner new version

 

Well I would have prefured to be honest that I could buy a licence to use ccleaner without any monitering as an on demand thing.

I don't care to buy pro, I don't need the features, I really don't.

I do think though that if they keep being to aggressive well who knows.

The problem is that the aggressive Avast people took over PiReform and I understand the old team were not particularly happy about this. In fact the malware was not bad, but I suspect was done deliberately by the disgruntled people who no doubt were getting the  chop..
It has scanned OK and now they have at least given people the ability to turn off the snooping, at least we assume they have come clean completely as obviously the free version had to be subsidised by collecting metrics from the users.

The real power bits of ccleaner for me are the ability to look at browser add ons,  and tasks and start up items and toggle them, also to see what system restore points are set and to remove old ones.

Hello,

Not a big fan of products like CCleaner. In September of 2017, it was widely reported that the backdoor was being exploited to have malware implanted. And another report last December:

The actual malware detected in CCleaner was found to contain malicious code: the attackers implanted their code in a legitimate product that received a legitimate certificate.

Who knows when or if the above will happen again. Use the product at your own risk.

What's bothering me more is the sluggishness when moving around through files and folders. There seems to be between a quarter and a half second delay after each press of the arrow and enter keys. Same with the backspace.

First question: is there a way to toggle between folders and ribbons, or am I stuck? I'm guessing the answer to be stuck.

Next, is there a way to speed up movement through navigating files and folders? As far as I can tell, I have all visuals and animations turned off. The sluggishness remains, and increases over time. Starting and stopping the "Windows Explorer" process in Task Manager seems to make things less slow, but still not normal for a few minutes, then things get more and more sluggish again.

In addition, is there anything in NVDA that I can check to see if it would help in the new sluggishness? I just miss the snappiness I had in Windows 7.

Re: who knows this?

Gene
 

Do some programs tell you and some not or do none tell you.  I'm trying to determine if this is an accessibility problem with certain programs, a problem with your Windows causing nothing to tell you, or a problem with only certain programs.  If it's a problem with only certain programs, I doubt you can other than, perhaps performing OCR on the screen, which might tell you.
 
If it's a problem with Windows, you may be able to correct it or, if you don't want to spend the time and trouble, I have no idea how easy or difficult it may be, doing OCR on the screen may tell you in that case as well.

Re: NVDA PORTABLE

I'm not sure if its slower loading pages.  is slower when you tell the program to run to fully start running. 
 
I don't know if it is slower than versions like 51.x but it's noticeably slower compared with 49.exe in starting to run time.

Re: kody

Chris
 

The screen reader addon for kodi can be found within the kodi program itself

So unfortunately you will need sighted help to search and install the addon

After its been installed you should be good to go

Re: ccleaner new version

Gene
 

This won't help with correcting the current problem.  I suspect you may need sighted assistance.  But if you look at the web site of a program if you think the program should be removed differently than usual and/or or ask here if you have a problem or if you hink a different removal procedure is necessary or desirable, you may save time and trouble.  the web site doesn't say to turn off Avast as a process.  I have Avast.  I don't know if your experience will be the same but when I uninstalled it from one machine, I used add/remove programs, it was an XP machine, and started the uninstallation as usuall.  Then at some point, a non-speaking are you sure dialog came up.  I pressed the space bar and speech returned.  I was then able to continue.  I thought that might be happening because of past experience with the program where a non-speaking dialog comes up when doing certain things. 
 
And the web site says to first try uninstalling the program using Programs and Features and if that doesn't work, to use their uninstallation tool.  It says nothing about disabling any processes first.  The program has a self-defence system and it may prevent you from doing so anyway.  It won't let you stop running it using the task manager.  You can turn the self-defense system off from within the program.  You may want sighted help to do so.  Since the web site doesn't mention doing this, it may make no difference.

Oh man, I broke my main system Friday trying to get rid of the evil
thing that is Avast! To make a long story short, I was trying to stop it
from starting up so I could do the manual uninstall. I went into
MSConfig in order to do that and instead of disabling just the Avast
services, somehow I managed to disable everything.

     I used to use MSConfig when it was just the list of programs
starting up and then a way to stop them. Well now it still gives you the
list but then it says either enable all or disable all.

Re: A bug to repport: NVDA works harder in Windows Explorer for some users.

Different program here. People are talking about Windows Explorer, now called file browser on Windows 10. You are referring to Internet Explorer, which is not actually being talked about here, so the Firefox comparison is invalid.

Re: make nvda read blues tacks ?

I (and maybe others) have no idea what you're asking about. What are "blues
tacks"? Give us a reference to where we can read about this, or explain to
use in more detail what it is and what it's for.


Thanks,

OK the fact that its multi platform makes me think that its not been made with any API in mind at all, and this is a worry.

However they do say some things about a web interface for it, so I did wonder if one might be able to control it like that in some way. Obviously I've not tried it as I've only just heard of it, but being open source and one supposes it has a forum and probably some email addresses for queries, your questions about the accessibility are probably better directed there
Apart from Mozilla who do attempt to make their code specific to the operating system and hence its API  I have not had much luck with these sort of programmes in the past, sadly.

Media  library front ends are notoriously odd and most of those used on home entertainment systems tend to be touch screen or graphic based.

It could be that the so called screenreader is some kind of self voicing interface written similar to the way SpeakOn works.
If its not installing then maybe its something to raze with the authors.
