Hi. There was this quick, small signature .exe tool, that could Flush DNS, erase temp windows files and logs. It is similar to minitoolbox. Any idea what's it called? I forgot.

 

 

Thank you!

If it was TFC be aware that the first version was released in 05/28/09 and was last updated by OldTimer 06/23/12...that was version 3.1.9.0 which supported Windows XP/Vista/Windows 7. TFC has become outdated to some extent as the Windows operating system has continued to be updated with critical security patches. As time has passed, there have been more reports of various issues with running TFC to include unexpected freezing, hanging, unresponsiveness, etc. especially on newer operating systems so I would not recommend using it on Windows 8 or above. Instead you may want to consider using CCleaner Portable or another junkware removal tool which supports Windows 7 and above.

BTW...TFC does not flush DNS.

ATF Cleaner was last updated by Atribune 02/27/08...that was version 3.0.0.2 which only supported Windows 2000/XP/Vista. It may work on Windows 7 but I would not recommend using it on newer operating systems.

On a side note, with a little bit of tweaking I managed to run and play the whole game through - Star Wars: Episode 1-Racer, from 1999, on a Windows 10 64-bit laptop, lol.

Simply write a batch script to do it all, and run as administrator.

ipconfig /flushdns
