I can't get my passwords to load in the new version. I have the Password Exporter extension (as I do in SeaMonkey) but it doesn't successfully import the passwords.

Could I just copy the permissions.sqlite file (and/or places.sqlite) from my SeaMonkey profile?

br3: I wouldn't mess with the sqlite file and it looks like Password Exporter doesn't handle importing. Try: http://www.ghacks.net/2007/10/25/import-and-export-firefox-passwords/ ... post in forums if you have further issues.

Your instructions above say "Launch Start Tor Browser.exe and answer a few quick questions about your connection". Those instructions are misleading and confusing. I was stumped for a while until I realized the "Start Tor Browser" file is a shortcut, NOT an executable. Please correct the instructions by removing the text ".exe".

DriveCleanup v1.0.0 Updated

DriveCleanup removes all currently non present "Storage Volumes", "Disk", "CDROM", "Floppy" USB drives and their USB devices from the device tree. Furthermore it removes orphaned registry items related to these device types. Both are not removed by similar programs on the site and take up space on the registry, eventually slow down a computer over time.

To preview program actions, start with argument -T (test mode).

A 64-bit version is available (within the folder).
