Canon's Digital Photo Professional 4 is running very slowly on my PC. My PC just meets the minimum requirements for RAM - 4 GB. I had a topic on geeks where the "geek" explained how to use CCleaner and analyzed my startup programs. I had been referencing that topic about every year. Now when I click on My Content, it only goes back to 2015. Is there a way to get to my older topics? I thought if there were programs running on startup that I didn't need, I might be able to improve performance.

 

Thanks.

I will take a look and get back to you.

 

Regarding my other question, is there a way to view old topics of mine?

 

Thanks.

Not sure I agree with that site's recommendation to remove everything from startup except anti-virus.I have attached the findings from CCleaner. For one, I want Autorun Eater. The last "geek" analyzed every program for me and whether I would want it on startup or not. If I could get to that post, that would help.  Unless you can give me the scoop on the programs I have running at startup now. Thanks.

Your startups look fine, and Privazer is safe to run. :)

I can't find any help on KCleaner. I don't see anything on their website nor in the software. I don't want to just click a button and see what happens, especially when it states "Use with care." Do you know where the help is?

 

Thanks.

Skip the use of Kcleaner, that is just a secondary option, but I can tell you it is safe to use.  :)
