Default Beware of CCleaner

I had many troubles lately with X-Fi crackling sounds when in Game and Entertaiment modes, but not in Audio Creation (ASIO) mode. I uninstalled, reinstalled, etc., drivers and ALchemy 1.04, but it always went to crackling in Game mode eventually.

Finally, I realised, that CClearner "cleaning" was causing this. I can reproduce it. When I install Vista drivers and ALchemy from scratch, it works. If I run CCleaner once, it will break X-Fi EAX modes and only Audio Creation will continue working after reboot.

Permanent solution: uninstall CCleaner and never use it again. There is a nice little Windows utility for cleaning anyway...

// SORRY - mod, please move this to Vista forum
