  7. Won't clean Chrome

    Is anyone else having problems with the newest version. It worked great for about 10 days then it only cleaned a 1/4 of what it did during those 10 days. What version are the moderators using?

  9. Winapp2.ini additions

    Agreed, I think it should be moved to winapp3.ini specifically The backups folder becomes polluted with backup files that notepad++ has "forgotten" over time, mine has over 40 0kb backups of files that I never created. Normally I'd say we should just remove it because most users wouldn't want to delete these, but given this issue I think there's a case for the usefulness of the entry
  10. Hello. I have been using Ccleaner for many years. Recently I noticed CCleaner always opening two processes in my task manager. I have version 5.52.6967. In the settings I have unchecked the following options below: - Enable automatic browser cleaning - Enable Smart Cleaning - Run Ccleaner when computer starts - Apply these updates automatically - Show me notifications for these updates --> Perform these updates manually - Help me improve CCleaner by sending anonymous usage data In my task manager I do not have CCleaner enabled at system startup. Why does CCleaner keep opening two .exe processes? I no longer trust CCleaner given the numerous online articles mentioning "Avast" in conjunction with sneaky background operation. I hope others read this and give input. Thanks.

  12. Internet Explorer 11 update(s)

    - Actually, the update for IE 11 is included in the monthly "Roll up update" for Windows 7 (SP 1). But I always download both the update for IE 11 and the monthly rollup. Just in case I need to re-install Win7. - MS started in say 2013 (2014 ??) to release a "Cumulative Security Updates for IE 11" every month. That was long before MS started to issue "Monthly Rollup Updates" (say mid 2016).

  14. How to Do a System Restore

    hello trnew, from ccleaner -> tools -> system restore... you can only see the restore points and if you want ... delete this or another one for more hd-space. if you want a system restore -> take the windows-way (in german Systemsteuerung -> Wiederherstellung -> Systemwiederherstellung öffnen) in english perhaps "Control Panel -> Recovery - Open Systemrecovery" ps: windows 8.1 - i dont know what exactly the way is in w10...
  15. See trackers option missing

    The quick clean - that is the name - is a beta (experinental) thing that not everyone had. I never had it but it's just a 'simple' user interface that doesn't show all the settings. The CCleaner programme itself was the same, just with a simple front end. Obviously if you buy pro then you know what you are doing and so don't want a dumbed down user interface and want to see all the settings and options. PS. The simple interfaces call ALL files 'trackers' but they are just cookies, logfiles, and the like. They are not actively tracking anything.
  16. cc pop up

    There is an Avast cookie that CC puts on your system. Among other things it notes that you have seen the popup and not to show it again. It should be in the 'Cookies to keep' by default. If you take it out of cookies to keep it will be deleted when you clean and the popup will come back.
  17. See trackers option missing

    I purchased 5.52 pro and before and after purchase I had a second sweeper icon above 'cleaner' which read 'speedy cleaner'or 'fast cleaner' (or else, sorry, I do not remember the exact name) that allowed me to see the number of trackers and stop their activities. The interface shown a drawing of a rocket launcher. After running it a few times this option vanished and I cannot find any reference to it anywhere. Please advise, should I reinstall the program?

  19. How to Do a System Restore

    After using CCleaner, I could not use some of my applications. I am not familiar with going about trying to restore the files that I deleted. I went to CCleaner, saw there was a tab for TOOLS, which brings me to the SYSTEM RESTORE panel. In there are System Restore files, by Date and Time and Description. Can someone please help me with directions on what I need to do to restore my information. I so much appreciate it.

  22. Unable to open recovered documents

    Hi, thanks for your replies. I have tried a number of different file types but there does'nt seem to be a patern. Some word excel and PDF files open but not others. The word files often come up with file conversion errors and don't work on western microsoft default or any other codex. The PDF silimarly and get the file compatability pop up that I get from docx 368 file types which i usually overcome with compatabilty or open with . I am still using my old microsoft office software as as I dont like the new microsoft upgardes edge, outlook etc but do you think if I upgrade to 365 this would allow me to open these docs. Just to be clear the files that I am trying to open were saved with the same application I am using now.
  23. Secret Windows bug/fix ?

    Interesting to see that you also noticed a problem with USB, which later fixed itself. It's hard to tell from the logs, but it does look like on the 14th one of my USB ports was regading everything that I connected as 'idle' and so supplying no power. (Selective suspend mode). Another port has the wireless dongle for my mouse and that was working fine like yours, maybe because it was connected at boot? EDIT checking my laptop specs - the mouse dongle is in a USB2 port, the one with no power was a USB3, maybe that explains the difference. I still think it was the patch Tuesday updates that did it, the port was working OK before that on the 13th - and the last thing I did on the 13th was the PT updates and then shutdown. The background download seems to have put it right again on the 15th. Checking around further it seems that the main function of that background download was to update UI's of the installed Microsoft Games, - Solitaire, etc. Whether it's just a coincidence that it also fixed the USB error who knows?

      Forum Rules

      Welcome to the Piriform Forums!     In order to keep the forums running well and to prevent problems, please follow these simple rules for the forums. If you have any questions or problems, please feel free to contact one of The Moderating Team.     1: Be respectful to all members when posting.   No flaming, personal attacks such as flaming, instigating "flame bait", verbal abuse or mocking of members in forum posts are not tolerated at the Piriform Forums. Such posts will be deleted on sight and moderated accordingly. If you are a long standing member, act like one.   Lead by example and assist other newer members rather then attacking them. Members that reply to posts simply to instigate argument will be warned. Should you ignore this warning you will be banned.     2: No Warez (links) & Cracks.   Help, requests or posts that discuss circumvention. This includes linking to illegally obtained software, movies & music files - posting about it, and suggesting to get it.     3: Don't post your question under multiple topics.   Think before posting and choose the right forum for your question or answer. Be sure to check the pinned topics or use the Search feature to see if your question has already been addressed. When posting, have something to say, not just "My first post!"     4: No spamming, ever!   Spamming is characterized by the initiation of threads or posts that contribute nothing to a forum, be it off topic or on topic.   Examples include: empty bodies, bodies with few words that have no relation to the current thread or discussion and those posts that state they are spam, either to annoy, advertise or increase a member's post count. Resurrecting old forum posts is also not appreciated unless it serves a worthy cause to the forum. This determination is made by the forum Moderator or Administrator and is not up for discussion.     5: Unacceptable Forum or News comments.   While some members feel that post count is important, there are some posts that do not contribute to the community in any way whatsoever. Below is a list of unacceptable posts. If you wish to direct a fellow member to something that has already been posted, please do so in a courteous manner.   "Old news" or anything similar.   "(Insert product or brand) sucks" or anything similar.   "I posted this x days ago!!!" or anything similar.     6: Avatars, signatures and custom user titles.   I: Avatars are a luxury for the members to have. Avatars can be a maximum of 90x90 and 50kb in size. Avatars can also be in any of these formats: gif, jpg, jpeg, png.   II: Forum signatures are to be used respectfully, so do not annoy our members by making your signature into some sort of web ad. Signatures can be a maximum of 350x100 and 80kb in size.   III: You may have an image at the maximum of 350x100 in your signature at the standard text size and four lines of text with the image.   IV: You may have a maximum six lines of text in your signature at the standard size. Larger font sizes are allowed so long as they do not break the 350x100 limit.   V: X-Fire signatures are an exception to this rule as they only have two sizes that are preset.   VI: Advertising in your signature is strictly prohibited. Linking to a product that competes against Piriform is strictly prohibited.   VII: Custom user titles are not to be abused. Vulgarity, racism or flaming in member titles will not be tolerated.   VIII: Inappropriate content such as Pornographic, violent or otherwise offensive images, language etc. This may include racist remarks, slander etc...   IX: If the avatar/signature is overly distracting, ie. bright flashing colors, animated signatures (i.e. GIF's/Flash) Audio and Video. These are distracting for our members, so do not have audio or video in your signature.   X: Please do not include signature links of a malicious nature. Examples are those that crash your browser, trigger popup floods or emulate BSOD's.   XI: Do not use your signature to link to pages that contain objectionable material. This includes, warez, cracks, pornography, pyramid schemes, referral ID's, ebay listings and requesting personal donations.   Abusing these privileges will result in them being lost and your account being restricted. Disregarding the above rules will result in the loss of the item in violation without warning.     7: Posts in a particular forum need to stay on topic.   If you want to talk about something that is drastically removed from the topic of a forum, please take it to "The Lounge". The Lounge was set up and designed for members to discuss issues not related to a specific forum section. We welcome most general conversation in The Lounge, but discourage it from other forums.     8: Use a title that describes the content of your post. Don't use all caps or special characters to draw attention.   Please refrain from using CAPITALIZATIONS in the topic title or when participating in threads because they will not attract attention - instead it will annoy many of the Piriform Forum members.   Very often we see meaningless subjects in topic title. They give no clue of what the posts are all about.   For example: Oh no! | I'm mad | Please help.   This should be avoided. Users should enter something more specific in topic title so that it is easier for others to help.   A few good examples:   CCleaner crashes during the analysis | Registry issues keep reappearing after scanning with CCleaner Issues | Computer very slow to startup.     9: No alternate accounts are allowed.   Should you be disciplined with a restriction or ban, you are not allowed to open a new account to obtain freedom to post. Restrictions and bans are given for a reason, and usurping that ability by re-registering is not tolerated.   If another account is opened, that account will be banned immediately, and the original account will be further penalized. Anyone who has warnings on their account are automatically excluded from changing their user name.     10: Giving advice on Malware Removal.   Giving advice on the removal of Malware by any member is to be discouraged. Even though some members may believe they have the knowledge to offer some basic safe advice, it may not be the "best" advice, and could also set a precedent for any member, knowledgeable or otherwise, to do the same.   Advice should only be dispensed by a qualified Malware Removal Expert on a reputable Malware Removal Forum.   This is to prevent "wrong" advice, albeit well meaning, being given by non qualified members, which could have disastrous consequences for the original poster.   If someone asks for help on removing Malware would members please limit themselves to pointing them to one or all of the following Malware Removal Forums ...   1: BleepingComputer   2: Geeks to Go   3: MalwareBytes Malware Removal   4: Malware Removal Forum   5: Cyber Tech Help   6: Avast Malware Removal Forum     11: Inappropriate Content.   No content, or advice or requests for assistance, relating to any activity that the moderators consider to be illegal or offensive will be tolerated.     12: The Piriform Staff requires that members respect the decision of moderators.   Threads and posts questioning the actions or decisions of forum moderations will be deleted on sight, and the appropriate action taken (up to and including forum bans) against the thread starter and/or participants.   Reporting System: Do not abuse the report system, while we appreciate members reporting bad behavior, we don't appreciate rude comments or your opinion on how 'quick' staff are at handling problems around here.   However, as a member you reserve the right to PM any Moderator or Administrator regarding action taken at the Piriform Forums.     13. Closed or removed an unacceptable post or topic:   Once an administrator or moderator has closed or removed an unacceptable post or topic it's then deemed to be a closed matter. If the member starts a new topic or posts with the same or similar unacceptable content it will result into administrative actions being taken against the member.   14. Publishing the content of Private Messages:   Please be aware that the posting of any contents of private messages (PM's) is expressly forbidden on the forum unless both parties have agreed to it.   15. Requesting help with computer issues via the pm (private messaging) system:   The pm (private messaging) system isn't to be used for requests for help with computer issues.   All requests for help must be posted in a topic on the forum where the poster will benefit from the knowledge and expertise of all members, and many others will benefit from the answers and solutions provided.   If any member (which includes moderators) wants to volunteer aid by pm after a topic has first been opened, then that's up to him or her and is perfectly acceptable.   Using the pm system as an alternative to opening a topic where everyone may benefit, isn't the correct or fair way to use that system, and could put members into the uncomfortable position of having to refuse requests for help, or worse still, being unable to refuse.   If any member is in that position, and still doesn't know what to do, then please pm one of the moderators, and they will sort it out quickly, confidentially, and in as friendly a way as possible.     Note:   Any infraction of these guidelines will result in a warning placed against your Piriform Forum account and will be added to your overall warning level.
