But that's why Microsoft made the 'Run as Administrator' function  ;D

This also means that 'standard' users will never be able to clean their privacy traces, and an admin won't be able to clean that specific users privacy traces either right?

Yes, but CSU is designed to work with the logged user. And this must be an administrator. I'll add your request to the feature list for the next updates.

I just tried the portable version. I played with it for about an hour and the same old problems are still there. It's a pain entering multiple Filter Entries in Disk Cleaner. After setting up a profile and exporting it, CSU won't let me import the profile I just saved. Some of the settings won't stick when I try to customize a profile. Seeing that I was having these problems, I didn't run the program for fear of system damage. I'll be staying with Comodo System Cleaner 2.2.335611.5 which works perfectly on my system.

I will ask out QA guys to work with you, so we can detect the problem, if you want. We've tested this scenarios on out computers and everything was fine. This why we were confident that the problems were fixed.

That's not necessary. I was just giving it a try. I don't particularly like the GUI. All the settings are buried under multiple tabs and drop-downs. I like the GUI of v2.2.335611.5 much better. Most settings are on one panel. The older version works fine and I have the new features of v4.0 covered with other programs.

That would be a good thing, currently I use CCleaner in two runs (one as a standard user and a second as the administrator).
As all applications have 'Current User' savings etc that require the tool to also run under standard account to e.g. clean you privacy traces.

An other option would be to be able to select user-profile once you start it as Administrator. But that would not help the users who are not admin on 'some' system.

Congratulations on the release.

Also, in Autorun Manager if it says that the file's malware status is unknown does that just mean that the file hasn't been whitelisted yet, regardless if the signature is in the TVL? Therefore, if a file says "Not Infected" does that mean that that particular file has been manually whitelisted?

Thanks.

Yes, if the status is unknown, it means that the file hasn't been whitelisted yet by Comodo. If the status is "Not infected' it means that that the file has been whitelisted. The status for a known malware file is "Infected".

Hi,

   The world is slowly moving to SSD's. And with SSD's, the defrag operation is no longer necessary. So for now we sit back and notice the trend. There is no point into making a defag program, that will take several months to complete, and when we finish it, just see that no one will use it.
Also, there is no point into making an average defrag program. If we'll ever do this, we'll try to make it the best. And this takes a long time.
So my answer is that maybe we'll do a defrag program in the future, but only if the demand will remain high enough.

So why the need for registry defrag?

And for portable version do you have to manually run the database updater? i.e install version after install automatically does a database update, what about portable version database update?

The registry defrag is a little different than a disk defrag. Registry data structure is stored in registry hive files. This files are loaded during computer boot into the memory. The more fragmented the registry are, the bigger the registry hives. This mean that the boot time will be bigger. So basically the registry defrag is done to shrink the registry hive files, this leading to a better boot time.
Disk defrag is done to improve seek time when accessing the file. When accessing a file, the more fragmented it is, the longer it will take to read it, because it's buffers are spread all over the HDD. Because the seek time of a SSD is almost 0, the defrag is no longer needed.

In the portable version, a manual database update is needed. We cannot run automated tasks in the portable version ( task schedule, update service ) because this will no longer make the version portable.

Thanxx for all the info.
