Please upload the install.txt file from CCleaner.
Easier, quicker, no hoop-jumping on my end to edit.

All changes can be undone. These changes up to this point will all improve your performance.

Do need the install.txt file.
thanks,

Sorry 'bout the delayed response: work and a certain lack of energy after work are impeding my progress!
Anyway, I actually didn't even see your instructions (above) until just now... didn't realize the thread had rolled over to a second page.
See the attached "Installed" file, per your instructions.
Thanks again for your help.
