Housekeeping with Ccleaner - How to Use the Cleaner and Registry options.

Lets do some Housekeeping with Ccleaner - Lets get started

1:Open CCleaner.

2: Lets Start off by cleaning your temp files, History Cookies Index.dat files etc. (By default the brush is already selected)

3:Uncheck the items that you'd do not want to clean out from your browser(s) and any suggested applications. Under Internet explorer check temporary internet files, cookies, and last download location. Most users don't really need this stuff. It is up to you if you want to clear the cache of  history and bookmarks Index.dat files. Leave Windows Explorer, System, and Advanced at the default settings.

4: Run CCleaner and it will start deleting files

 5:Click "Run Cleaner"  once again  until you get 0 bytes remove

Now that you have removed all the unwanted files you can move onto cleaning the registry

The Registry Cleaner

Use the Registry Cleaner after uninstalling programs, as the uninstalled programs will often leave behind incorrect registry entries. The registry cleaner is recommended for slightly more advanced users.
1:Click the Registry tab on the left hand side of the program window.

2:Check off the items want to clean.(leave at default if you are not sure)

3:Click the "Scan for issues" button at the bottom of the program.
 (Give the program a few moments to run and look for all potential problems with the registry.)
4: Click the "Fix Selected issues" button.
5: Create a backup copy of the registry file.  (I have never encountered a problem with ccleaner, its probably  one of the safest registry cleaners out there. Just create a back up for your peace of mind.)

6: Click the "Fix All Selected Issues" when a dialog box displays.
7: Now continue to repeat the process  from point 3 again until you get a message that reads "No issues found" ( Fixing one issue may create other issues so just repeat until you get the 'no issues found' )
8: You are now done and close your Ccleaner window.


Have a look at how to remove /disable unwanted start up items from your PC with Ccleaner.

Microsoft is doubling the storage capacity of inboxes for those using Exchange Online and Office 365

Microsoft is doubling the storage capacity of inboxes for those using Exchange Online and Office 365. The rollout from 25GB to 50GB is already under way and should be completed sometime in November according to a post on the Office 365 blog.

Customers using Exchange Online Plan 1, Office 365 Small Business, Midsize Business, Enterprise E1, Government G1 and Education A1 are among those that will see the mailbox capacity boost.
Those on one of Microsoft’s premium service plans (Exchange Online Plan 2, Office 365 Enterprise E3 and E4, Government G3 and G4, Education A3 and A4) already enjoy unlimited e-mail storage through their personal archive but now the default primary mailbox size is increasing to 50GB. It is worth pointing out there will be no extra charge for the additional storage and the transition will happen seamlessly behind the scenes.

Elsewhere, shared mailboxes and Resources mailboxes are both increasing to 10GB (more than double) and Kiosk user mailboxes are doubling in capacity from 1GB to 2GB. The size of Site mailboxes remains unchanged, Microsoft said.

The changes come just days after Microsoft tripled the file storage capacity on SkyDrive Pro. Office 365 and SharePoint customers previously were afforded just 7GB of storage but that’s now been boosted to 25GB.

Overall, the new storage limits push Microsoft ahead of Google Drive’s storage capacity that’s shared across Drive and Gmail. One has to wonder if the search giant will take notice and boost user capacity in response
