I have been using CCleaner for some time now and have never had any trouble by just accepting the settings and wiping clean. However this moring I faced a message on bootup telling me that my Windows firewall was turned off. I went to the Windows Firewall link in the control panel and I could not open it. Therefore I did a system restore after remembering that I had run CCleaner last thing yesterday. All is now OK, but what I would like to know is what setting should I have, to stop this happening again. Windows XP Pro Sp2. I am sure that there is an expert on CCleaner out there. Thanks for advice.
Like you I find it difficult to understand, but I cant think of anything that I did yesterday that could have caused my firewall to switch off. I spent hardly any time on my computer yesterday as I was busy doing other things. I checked my email and then just before bed I ran CCleaner. This morning I had the message telling me that the firewall was off.After much pondering I did a System restore to yesterday and all is now OK. But why did it go OFF ?? :-(( Andsome Reason:- New computer in as supplied condition is the reason that I am still on SP2. What advantages does SP3 bring?? I tend to be a " If it ain't broke dont fix it" sort of person.
