    Hello,

    I have downloaded and installed Easy Cleaner four times in this past week. Each time the result has been the same - my system freezes, and pressing Ctrl Alt Delete has no effect. An 'improper' shutdown and a Scan Disk of all drives reveals no errors.

    The download, in C:\Program Files, appears to contain all needed but a right-click on the application (made in order to send a shortcut to the Desktop) results in a flash of what may be the GUI - the freeze follows.

    Thoughts appreciated.

    Ben.:confused:

    Hi Ben:

    Not too much to offer since I've never tried EasyCleaner with my Windows ME. But a while back I did try CCleaner and my Windows ME would freeze. The only thing I can think that may be causing these file cleaning programs to have freezing issues for some users is there might be another file cleaning program in your system that is conflicting with EasyCleaner. I know you are a man of many cleaning tools, so perhaps if you temporary remove all your cleaning tools and then try EasyCleaner again and see what results you get.

    Oh Joe,

    Am I really? Let me reflect. jv16pt. RegSeeker. Delindex. HijjackThis. ClkeanIE. Well I guess even those may be sufficient enough. Remove all of them - at once? OMG work work is all I ever do. Then there is PurgeIE.:eek:

    But a good idea, Joe, for a dull day. I must have had a reason for wishing to try it - perhaps because it is so well touted hereabouts.

    Have you had your say in the this thread yet?

    Cheers, Joe.

    Ben.

    PS In case anyone suggests a format and install I'll mark this solved!:D

    Ben - I use Regcleaner, and about a year ago I installed EasyCleaner. Absolutely no problems with it working on my ME, but then there never is a problem! Sorry this is not much help but maybe GoJoAGoGo has a point.
    Good luck.

    Thanks, johnni.

    Hope you saw the 'New Horizons" lift-off. It was truly spectacular.

    All the best.

    Ben.
