  1. Past hour
  2. I Cleaned something and Python; Numpy GDAL missing

    maybe starting with EXCLUDE'ing the whole Python27 folder for starters.
  3. Today
  4. Winapp2.ini additions

    I believe the dvdcss folder is generated by applications that use libdvdcss https://www.wikiwand.com/en/Libdvdcss
  5. I Cleaned something and Python; Numpy GDAL missing

    Did you do a registry clean? Python forums may be your best bet as this is probably beyond the scope of these forums https://python-forum.io
  6. I have seen this situation reported on another forum too. It is as if the offering of the slim build (from the builds page) is location dependant.
  7. Wrong Hard Drive Speed

    Speccy Free Version 1.31.732 reports all my Hard Drive disks speeds as 10,000 RPM when they are actually 7,200 RPM per manufacture specs. See attached. Note both say: RPM/Buffer Size or Attribute = 10,000 RPM with 16 MB cache. The WD7502AEX reports Speed = 10000 RPM. The WD2003FZEX reports Speed = 7200 RPM. Both should report 7200 RPM in all four instances per WDC specs. and HDD Label.
  8. new 3x1 widget

    Sooo, i'm not one to complain about visuals, but the new 3x1 is difficult to place on my home screen. Would love to see the 1x1 comeback alongside this new one. Can't screenshot home screen a bit PG-13
  9. maybe a better question is how would i know? or how would i find out?
  10. why basically does that happen? is it like 10% about is usually lost or? i just cancelled it, is that bad? cos i have a usb, but i have no idea what size the stuff to recover is cos it doesnt say
  11. That would be heavily frowned upon
  12. I think it was pretty clear by my fellow moderator above. How does he know. That question makes little sense to me, but he has used the program that's how he knows. If you don't have a separate drive go to walmart and buy a flash drive. If you recover to the source drive you will lose some of the files you want to recover. As far as other softwares question. Yes, that's roughly how any recovery should be done. But this is an official company website so we won't be suggesting alternatives.
  13. Now it goes to and sits at https://www.ccleaner.com/
  14. It still isn't downloading for me and I'd like to install the slim version. would anyone be willing to upload the file to a file host and post the link to here or to me in a private message please?
  15. Cannot print From PC

    Reinstall the printer, and next time you clean the registry make the backup, or better yet follow the guide for registry in my signature
  16. Cannot print From PC

    I think I did a registry clean without backing up. I now cannot print from my PC. Printer is an HP Envy7640 and I use my router to print wireless. I have no problem printing wireless from my cell phone and tablet. How can I recover my PC printing?
  17. I need to know what I cleaned so I don't do it again. It might be a DLL or a path but it seems that all my links are broken. Please help. I've also reloaded Python hoping I could fix it but the links are still broken, any help would make me smile...
  18. Yesterday
  19. "Recuva recovers files to wherever you specify. It will not replace them where they were." how did you learn it tho? like how do i find out? if you know, how did you learn about it? also, how do i find out where it puts it? do most recovery software restore in the same place/way? "They should be recovered to a separate folder on a different drive from the source drive." win10 only has one drive c what should i do?
  20. Recuva recovers files to wherever you specify. It will not replace them where they were. They should be recovered to a separate folder on a different drive from the source drive.
  21. That's strange. It quite quickly diverts to https://www.ccleaner.com/ now, but it didn't when I posted the above. I downloaded the slim version quite easily. In fact I played with the url and replaced slim with portable, and that worked and still works (but for how long, I wonder?). I also wonder if someone is working late at Piriform. These url's are timing out now. I don't know what's going on. I just wish Piriform would say what they're doing and put an end to all this nonsense.
  22. Hi all, Newbie here but I've been using CCleaner for years, and love it. I've found a bug in the last 2 versions which haven't been fixed in this latest version 6411. I like to keep my Outlook and OneDrive Login passwords stored so I don't have the headache of Microsoft Two Form Factor passwords everytime I open Outlook.. I've removed Tick from the Box for MS Office and MS OneDrive, but it always seems to delete the password and I have to enter it again each time. So everytime I run CCleaner and then open Outlook or restart OneDrive, it keeps asking me password. Please could you fix this bug.
  23. does this restore the files where they were, or does it create a separate folder else where with the files inside? if you know, how did you learn about it? also, how do i find out where it puts it? do most recovery software restore in the same place/way?
  24. I too keep my passwords in a file, but in my case, an Excel 2016 file with a password to open and another one to modify.
  25. That link goes to and sits at https://www.ccleaner.com/ccleaner/download/slim/downloadfile
  26. Winapp2.ini additions

    Updates: https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/72d630a8090fbcc6eab0db830bc4d215be94a521 So instead of just linking all the changes I have done to Winapp2, I will just link the changes that only effect what users have posted here. Of course, users should always update their copy of Winapp2 to get all the changes.
  27. Try https://www.ccleaner.com/ccleaner/download/slim

      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.
