One cause of the slowness has been linked to having the preview pain turned on while running file explorer. Press alt+v and look through the view ribbon to determine the pane's state.

Hi,

 

Firstly, no, JAWS doesn’t suffer from the same problem. 

 

Secondly, though,I don’t find this slowness either with NVDA – I don’t use NVDA constantly so maybe it is only after it has been running for a long time that the problem arises.  However, I’ve just spent 15 minutes going through my various drives and folders with absolutely no slow down at all – one of the folders had in excess of 1,000 subfolders and it was as quick as one which only had one or two in it!

 

The only other thing I can think of is that, possibly, it may be an add-on which is causing this?  The reason I put this out is that I have very, very few add-ons installed!

 

Good luck with identifying where the problem is and on fixing it.

 

Oh yes, and I’m using the latest version of Windows 10 64-bit along with the latest stable version of NVDA.

 

Cheers

Richard Bartholomew

First of all, I'm still getting used to the idea that File Explore now
uses ribbons rather than the menus on my former Windows 7 installation.

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

Re: ccleaner new version

 

Well to be honest jean its bad practice to have the autosaving of passwords, but  people can customise things to what they want.

I personally think its safer to log in manually on all things.

However I don't clear passwords as such with this ini file that is at the defaults I am always logging out though.

If they don't have it, they will have to use the forgot password features on all such sites.

When you create such a file and distribute it, you need to consider the way typical users use their computers, not jus how you do.

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.

Hi all portable ccleaner users.

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

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

There is supposed to be a checkbox revamp and some more

portable easily enough I don't know if I will ever go back to

Re: Windows 10 1803 and file explorer sluggishness

Annette Moore
 

what I do, when NVDA doesn't read the list of folders or files in File Explorer, if I don't just become impatient and restart NVDA altogether, which does solve the probem temporarily, is to down arrow through the files because some of them I know from going through them before what they are, and just entering on the one I think is the one I want. If it isn't, I just hit backspace and keep going. I've found ways to deal with this File Explorer sluggishness, but it can be a pain. And I really hate to say this because I love NVDA, but it doesn't do this in System Access. System Access has its own quirks in Windows 10, though, one of which drives me even more batty than the sluggish File Explorer list not being read  quickly by NVDA, and sometimes not even at all, does, and that is what I call the dead insert key. I can live with a sluggish file explorer; I cannot live without my insert key. Another thing that helps is simply to close file explorer altogether and reopen it. I'm trying to figure out a pattern for why it does this, but I can't seem to. It *really* does it with Dropbox, though; in fact, when I copy and paste a file or folder from Dropbox into somewhere else on my computer, I just automatically restart NVDA. I don't even mess with it. So yeah, I've figured out ways to deal with it and I can live with it, but glorious will be the day when it no longer happens. I'll celebrate! Honestly! LOL!

Re: Windows 10 1803 and file explorer sluggishness

This may be referring to the amount of virtual memory.  Absolutely not the cause of the problem.  If you had so little RAM in the computer that you couldn't even down arrow through a files and folders list, you couldn't run any programs except so slowly you wouldn't use the machine.

It sounds to me that what you are experiencing is like what used to happen when a program had a memory leak.  As time went by and more and more events happened memory would fill up and things would slow down.


I would expect that if this were the case many more of us would be seeing this behavior too but so far it doesn't sound like there are very many.


Is this possible?


Another thought is that have you checked to make sure the virtual storage setting is high enough on your system?  This used to happen if virtual storage was set too low.  Sorry, it has been too long since I last worked with virtual storage and I can't seem to find where this setting is on Windows 10.  Maybe someone else on here can suggest how to find it.


I hope this helps.

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.


If anyone knows what I can do, I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

Re: ccleaner new version

 

Well there is but to be honest, the portable software is not that bad once you use my ini file, and maybe if you need to with sightling help, configure it for your particular situation, the ini is for a generic os, so if you use firefox/chrome/edge/ie/waterfox and thunderbird, winamp, vlc, its going to be fine.

If you don't customise to what you need.

Open ccleaner with that ini file in there, then close it, open the ini file in notepad and change what you need in that file and open ccleaner again make sure you save the file first.

You need to set the recyclebin and run checks in options and the skip uac in advanced options.

Once you are done, you are done.

I wouldn't abandon ccleaner especially now the ini works.

Hi!

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

Thanks in advance for your reply.

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.

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

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!

  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 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.
