Good morning!

If I might ask, can someone please explain to me why running Disk Cleanup
(specifically cccleaner) on a Domain Controller is a bad idea? And, what is
wrong with compressing all of the partitions? That shade of blue is pretty!

Thanks,

Cary

For starters, compression negatively affects performance...

Hello Cary,

good morning/afternoon from germany. :-)

Using a 3rd party tool to "cleanup" MS software is for me the same as i would
try to repair my own car. How should any other company know what really is
needed from MS software? Especially tools like ccleaner which also can "cleanup"
the registry. I know alot of people using this tools and then start from
the beginning because there machine was not starting anymore. So doing this
especially on a DC i can strongly warn against.

Best regards

Meinolf Weber

There should be no need to use a commercial type product, such as ccleaner
on a DC. CCleaner is for folks who don't follow safe surfing practices,
etc... A dc is meant to be a backend machine, no one should ever eving be
logging onto this machine, let alone using IE or downloading
freeware/shareware/spyware on it. If this machine is compromised, your
entire organization is compromised.

Stay off of your dc and don't run any "Free" products on it. Otherwise you
could be going to a backup from the damage created by this software.
