@Naphiopelios: no, my friend, you're not alone in this. I'm also having trouble with CCleaner's maximized state. Because of my PowerPro bar, CCleaner's window goes off-screen. I do consider this a bug, because none of my other apps behave like this, not even CCleaner version 4.

Because they are my computers and I run them the way I want and because I have zillions of shortcuts in PowerPro that date back to the age of Windows NT which I don't like to be forced to change.

And, of course, I run everything as administrator, but the point of my post is that Notepad++, when installed in Program Files, refuses to store its stuff in its own dir and keeps using %APPDATA% even if you run it as administrator. The only way to keep it in its folder is running it in Windows XP SP3 compatibility mode.

Dunn: I have a ton of weird config requirements like that -- I'm sure it'll help someone. Thanks for sharing.
