  2. No Software Updater in CCleaner

    I'm using CC free version. I've tried the regedits to '0' for the software updater entries and initially that worked and the software updater didn't show up. Now though if I run ccleaner it instantly resets those entries to '1' and the software updater is back, even though useless in the free version. I don't find it a real problem though. One funny thing I'm surprised no-one has mentioned is that the Piriform program Speccy shows up in the up to date program list as having "Unknown publisher".
  3. Today
  4. Where are the advanced features

    What happened to being able to select the advanced mode for start up? About three versions back it was available. Now it's not?
  5. Doesn't work because those registry keys do not exist, more than one person has posted about it not working. I'm surprised they haven't fixed those instructions yet. See if this here works instead (allows you to make a working .REG file): https://forum.piriform.com/topic/53177-how-to-disable-pre-launching-and-pre-loading-so-ccleaner-can-fully-clean-edge/?do=findComment&comment=302353
  6. Thanks, I was able to clean up the "ghost" startup program entries.
  7. Right-click on an entry in the list and select ''open in regedit''
  8. CCleaner must be reading the list of inactive startup programs from somewhere. They don't appear anywhere in the current registry - only the enabled startup programs are in the current registry file. Would anyone be able to tell me where this list is being populated from? registry
  9. @Dracman -- As I have Windows 10 Home, GP is out and I will not go to the registry. What I've been doing is cleaning Edge from within the browser (settings>privacy & security>browsing data). When I run CCleaner, I'll get the pop-up to close Edge, do that, and then CCleaner will skip some items. I can live with it. Piriform has to come up with the solution -- if there is going to be one. Also note -- some posters have reported that opening and then closing Edge has occasionally worked better for CCleaner. I haven't noticed any difference.
  10. No Software Updater in CCleaner

    Where is answer from developers?
  11. How to disable pre-launching and pre-loading so CCleaner can fully clean Edge This solution: https://www.ccleaner.com/docs/ccleaner/troubleshooting/how-to-disable-pre-launching-and-pre-loading-so-ccleaner-can-fully-clean-edge ...does not work! In Windows 10 Home Edition, there is no possibility to activate the Group Policies and it also does not work via Windows registry ... Please help..! Thanks
  12. I can NOT afford to buy Ccleaner with all the extra bells & whistles I never would need or use ! Please disable the pop-up ad that runs every other time i run the program!
  13. @hazelnut-- I do agree with you -- just answering a question posed by the original poster. But, I think the underlying issue is that what was referenced by the OP used to work, no longer works and hasn't worked since last October and Piriform promised a fix. That's in the thread I linked to above in the fourth post. One should not promise what can't (or won't) be delivered.
  14. I still stick to my desire NOT to have Reliability History or Event Viewer logs cleared by CCleaner.
  15. You may not want to hear this but after doing an upgrade from Win 7 to Win 10 it is always best to then do a clean install of Win 10. Otherwise bits of old operating systems (in your case Win 7) will keep popping up all over the place. You don't need to worry about a key as after you did your upgrade your key gets saved on the Microsoft servers and gets auto recognised.
  16. 5.55.7108

    Always look through the CCleaner area of the forums and especially the Bug Reports section of the forum to get a good look at what's happening. Here's some - not all are bugs though, some is stuff that annoys people: * https://forum.piriform.com/topic/53534-ccleaner-554-not-detecting-or-deleting-cookies/ * https://forum.piriform.com/topic/53546-last-ccleaner-v5547088-window-not-resizing/ * https://forum.piriform.com/topic/53569-software-updater-in-free-version/
  17. After upgrading my from Windows 7 to Windows 10, all of the disabled startup programs still display in the Startup tool window in CCleaner Professional 5.5.7108, but I am unable to either enable them or delete them. How can I remove the disabled entries from the Startup Tools list? I received the following message when trying to delete a disabled program.
  18. 5.55.7108

    How is this version working? Could someone please let me know if it's a good idea to update to this version? I am still using a older version and want to update to a newer working version. Thanks
  19. Only Avast/Piriform can answer that. The company was made aware last October.
  20. Yesterday
  21. Still no fix from Avast/Piriform as far as 1809 goes.
  22. Hi. Is this problem solved in newer vesions of CCLEANER or is a Windows bug? thanks
  23. disable new program updater feature

    I have the same question. How do I disable that annoying as hell updater pop up? I had to spend over 10 minutes trying to get through your damned captcha bulls**t just to make a stupid acct to try and find out how to do this. I will not hesitate to uninstall this muthaFu__er I've been using Ccleaner for years, got my entire family & some friends using it also. I'll give you a month to disable the pop-up yourself or give me an option to do it. After that I'll just uninstall the sob I wasn't this mad until i had to endure the unnecessary psychological abuse from your captcha system. fix it or don't. IF you do not fix it, I simply uninstall and recommend the same to my family and friends.
  24. Thanks for the reply lets hope that they will continue to update the software in the future.
  25. New Microsoft Office Icons

      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.
