No, Not all users at the same time. it was designed not to.

Most of the cleaning is for the complete system, however the individual users needs to log-in to clean their personal areas.

thanks

In the AutoClean window, the label at the bottom where the file path is displayed, the text is overlapping each other so nothing can be read...Just thought I'd point that out. Not bad, now to check the other functions

Also, it would be nice to open the websites from the native browser instead of IE...just for those Firefox users out there :(

You noticed the most questionable part of the program (for me)... very attentive

Actually, i notice that this bar seems to "re-display" previous lines of print. i tried many types of scripting to clear this problem. you may have noticed this line

ControlSetText("Deleting - " & $sLine, "", "Static1", $hLabel)

and, the counter only reflects every 5 files because it was a blur also. I really was hoping someone 8) could assist in this weird display action.

thanks

I would suggest trying GUICtrlSetData(). I wasn't too fond of that Registry watching program, I'll stick with that AdAware and the RegMon registry utilities.

Not bad though!

Edit: I don't think you ever posted any source code, I wouldn't know what could be the problem...

I tried GUICtrlSetData(). it didn't work either

The code is in the original post as an .au3. you should be able to read all the sorce code from there.

The reg 1st aid is a cleaner not a monitor, it just worked well in this cleaning process.

thanks

If Anyone has any ideas for the wierd display... please let me know.

At first I thought it was how you designed the GUI, then I thought it was my Windows Blinds Skin. And then I realised it was my 600x800 resolution.

Set your monitor at 600x800 and then run *XPClean Menu* and you can see what I initailly saw when running your program. I think you should consider revising it so it is suitable to use in all resolutions. Should not be to hard, just use @DesktopWidth/Height etc. Also hit "Auto Clean", "Full Menu" and "Share" when in 600x800 and half of the text/checkboxes/tabs appear off screen.

@Burrup :

MsgBox(64,"Tee-hee !",_JokeAbout("600x800"))

Func _JokeAbout($topic)
    If NOT $topic = "600x800" Then
        SetError(1)
        Return -1

Thanks that works great :(

Having my monitor resolution any larger makes my head think cause I have to look at the screen more cause the words are so tiny lol. Yes I also put my monitor on my foot lol? lol.

I got a chance to play with this last night... nifty.

Your code was really helphful, I now have a better understanding of GUI programming structure.

As a small suguestion, you might think of checking if @homedrive\temp\ exists, and if not create it, be fore installing the images. I had to make it before your program would display correctly.

Very nice stand-alone application!!!

I use the scheduler on all client workstations to order up Cleanmgr.exe, Defrag.exe, etc. Possibly I can take a few of the features from your script and add that capability to the schedule as well...Thanks for the ideas.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

be sure to look at the the "cmd extended clean manager" because you can usually select 5 to 10 more locations to clean
