    How can I disable a popup asking me if I want to allow CCleaner to run everytime I click on the shortcut? Its really annoying and I don't see a box where I can check mark "don't ask me this again".

    Thanks

    Control Panel > User Accounts & Family Safety > User Accounts > Change User Account Control Settings.

    Set it to "Never Notify"

    Wbio3 I'm looking into that right now, I'll let you know how it goes.

    See I thought about doing that, I just don't like the idea of it not notifying me if its program that I really don't want to run, like an automatic update or some malicious ware of some kind.


    If other people know of other ways to do this, please share - there's nothing wrong with having multiple solutions for a single problem.

    Hmm that's weird that it would stop working like that. I've been doing it this way for a few months and haven't had a problem so far. I run CCleaner in the "Auto" mode in one of my bots so that it runs in the background without popping up the CCleaner window. Let me know if you get it working or have anything I can help you out with.

    Thanks for your willingness to help, I really do appreciate it. Oddly enough its worked fine all day today so I didn't even need to pull up the tutorial and do it again.

    I'll let you know if I have any further trouble down the road-

    Too anyone else who uses their computer for more than just the usual BS, Windows 7 has an Administrator account built in so you don't have to right click and run as admin whenever you want to edit things.

    Here's how to turn it on, works on 64bit Ultimate for sure.
