Well, i found the solution myself. Don't know if this option is new or not but its the first time i noticed. So, when dragging files into another window or tab in Q-dir, at the bottom it says "Start drop in new process"! (and recycle bin and email aswell) ha! and just drop it on this button.. nothing will freez! magic :) Thanks anyway folks.
Q-dir is great.

The Q-Dir 64 installer 6.47 is not installing, last time there was also a problem with the 64 installer. They should be checking first before releasing the installer.

Can't recommend Q-Dir to anyone, freezes while copying, Q-Dir windows turns black, crashes. Windows 10 64-Bit, tried Q-Dir 32-Bit & 64-Bit, tried the PortableApps version, all of them buggy as hell. That*s probably the reason why the developer frequently updates it. 2 years back Mithril wrote about something that's still happening.

Time to start looking for an alternative, till then i'll use Windows Explorer.

I had similar issues, so never used it again. I had to reinstall a backup to fix most things.

Midas on 2018-02-03 22:01

As with all registry cleaning utilities, user discretion is utterly advisable. I use it on occasion and have never had such issues. Until proven that the issues reported are particular to Privazer, I would like for it not to be taken offline.

The_PrivaZer_Team on 2019-11-19 04:34

Hello to all,
here is the PrivaZer Team.

Sorry for the issues you had. The cause was a change in Windows Update impacting the way it was cleaned.
It could lead, in some cases, to the problems you described.

It has been fixed for good in v3.0.47 released in May 2018

Sorry again, really, and we hope we can have you on board again...

NOTE: Recent press about CCleaner indicates it may represent a privacy concern.

CCleaner is a feature-rich system optimization and privacy tool. The program cleans unused, temporary and log files from your system, as well as traces of online activities such as Internet history and flash cookies. The program contains startup controls for Windows, major internet browsers and context menu entries. Includes a separate registry cleaner, duplicate search, system restore tool and can wipe both deleted files and drive free space for security.

A 64-bit version is available (within the folder). Monitoring functions are only available in the pro version.

Additional cleaner rules can be using an unofficial set of community-developed set. It should be noted that many of these rules are alpha and the developers will not provide support for these rules, a thread in the users forum is dedicated to supporting the add-on rules.

Alternatively, ccPortable is also available.

Once again, the installer has malware/adware. Web of Trust rates the site with poor reputation in Trustworthiness and Child Safety. The application itself should be OK, but neither the installer nor the download link above is safe.

According to VirusTotal, the file at http://www.youtubedownloaderhd.com/files/youtube_downloader_hd.zip is clean... but check before using.
