Windows In previous OS News articles, I've claimed that mature computers up to ten years old can be refurbished and made useful. My last article identified and evaluated different ways to refurbish these computers. One approach is to keep the existing Windows install and clean it up. This has the advantage of retaining the Windows license and software, the installed applications, and the existing drivers. But it takes some work. In this article we'll see what this entails.

CCleaner doesn't force install Yahoo

Just a note, none of Piriform's applications force install Yahoo without a prompt. At the very last stage of the installer they give you a prompt asking if you want to enable this or that, check for updates automatically and "Install Yahoo Toolbar."

They even have a "lite" version of ccleaner that doesn't prompt period. The standalone version that can run on a thumb drive also does not integrate in any toolbar addons.
