Privacy Issues Question
« on: February 10, 2010, 05:59:18 PM »
Hi

Maybe this is a CSC question but CCS reported the issue so I'll post here :). Having run a power clean on my computer, CCS is still showing a high number of privacy issues (see screenshot). Is this registry location correct? (i.e Start Menu2).

:)

Hello

There are several sections from CSC that Power Clean do not delete because there are sensitive data like bookmarks, favorites or history. Privacy Issues from CCS show all privacy data found.

Thank you.

Hi Adrian

I have also run a thorough scan with only services, Opera bookmarks and cookies excluded. Is "Start Menu2" a legit location? Should it be "Start Menu" because it doesn't match up with my current Start Menu.

Hello

Please make a scan with Privacy Cleaner - Windows and check Start Menu Order history, and tell me if the scan results found those paths shown in CCS.

Thank you.

Hey Graham1,

Yes sir

If you want to get the numbers down, do what I do.  Go through it "line by line" Investagate each section :-La
One thing you should know, there are things that you can remove, but windows will put it right back.  Unless you plan on getting extreme and very knowledgeable on what your doing, some of it is best to leave alone. 

It's hard being a crooked Admin when the files won't pass an md5checksum test.  But like any other good crooked Admin it can be done, it just takes time(and lots of it) and a few aspirins

No, those paths did not appear in CCS. Strange, as I swear I had checked all settings within the windows section.

Hi jay2007tech

Don't worry :), I'm testing on my test tablet and if things go really bad, I can always restore from an image.
