I just used ATF Cleaner as recommended by Acklan, and my view of BC has gone totally haywire.

I've been to my Control Panel and checked everything relevant that I can see but can't get my old view back.

HEEEEELLLLLLP!!!!!!

Hello rowal5555 :thumbsup:
the same software haywired mines too when i was using firefox to my laptop
all i can see is just plain white
did you check the cookies for cleaning?
If so this may be cause of the problem (not quite sure)

I fixed that kind of problem before but i forgot how....
reinstall your browser may do the trick

Thanks guys. It is totally weird as no other site seems to be affected. Refreshing won't be a problem here. LOL

Well, was just going to bed when I got an email notification. Coming back via the link and everything seems to be back to normal. Great stuff.

ATF cleans out too much stuff and causes this sometimes.
Could be prefetch, java cache, all user temp. folders, etc.
Better to use ccleaner to eliminate this problem.

Well also i personally don't recommend ATF Cleaner
As what had happened here and other incidents that may cause
Rather i suggest that you use an alternative as what zbd says

Hi,

If you close all browser windows before running ATF you wont have this issue. To clear up the issue, close all browser windows and rerun ATF with the same settings you used. This should fix the problem.

As for CCleaner its a piece of trash, and part of the reason I made ATF public. CCleaner has a tendency to delete files that are crucial to windows. For the longest time they didn't acknowledge the issue with their program.

Thank you for the info. Much appreciated. Without this input I would just have not used the program again.

IMO, CCleaner is a great program and I will continue to recommend it - but it does have it's limitations just as the ATF Cleaner does. Used with proper care and advice it works wonders - and doesn't damage any Windows files. Either one (used improperly) can hose your system beyond repair.

Yeah its great!!! :thumbsup:
You'll have more options on cleaning because CCleaner can also detect applications that you may also want to clean like WinRar,QuickTime,etc.

The only thing that im confused when doing registry cleaning using CCleaner is that i find some file extensions
like OIS or something like that (i backup my registry)
so i just get stuck and don't know if i should remove it or not :flowers:

FWIW - I don't clean my registry. I feel that if it's mucked up enough to need cleaning, it's time for me to reinstall.

Backing up the registry before removing anything is a must - but be sure that you know how to restore it in case the system won't boot!

Let us know the exact name of the extension and we can look it up.

Do you still have Microsoft Office installed? If so, these relate to functions that it has. The obd and obt relate to the Office Binder, where the others seem to relate to picture viewing with the Office Picture Manager.

The unused keys refer to opening different files when you double click on them - jpeg, wmf, gif, emf, and png files will open in the Office Picture Manager while any obt or obd files will open up Office Binder (a program that ties all of your Office documents into one "package").

Although unused, I'd leave them in place just in case you need them in the future. They don't take up much room and could prove to be valuable to you at some time in the future. Also, you can uninstall the Binder features from Office and you can reinstall/uninstall the Office Picture Manager to get rid of these associations normally (BTW - OIS refers to the ois.exe file in your Office directory)

Finally, here's a link with a lot of good info about these extensions: http://www.officefrustration.com/printthread.php?t=186710
