  1. Past hour
  2. My neighbor and I do not use the registry cleaner. However, we both have Windows 10 and last week there were several cumulative updates in advance of 1903 which we both got on the 21st. Her Easy Clean disappearance occurred both before and after 1903 installation and like I said, mine never disappeared. So, I doubt it's a Windows thing (but who knows?). I'm leaning toward a bug since Dave CCleaner said it has been reported before. No custom tweaks in the registry cleaner and no block in Windows hosts files.
  3. Whether it's displayed or not is controlled by a registry entry setting. Which is why Dave CCleaner was asking above. If you haven't been 'playing' with the registry then it sounds like something else is changing it, which may be a bug in CC (probably is) or may be something else. I suppose the next relevant question is are you using the registry cleaner? It would be ironic if CCleaner was deleting it's own registry entries.
  4. Today
  5. Happened to my neighbor twice. First time, a couple of days ago. Easy Clean was gone. Came back the next day. And, it just happened again right now for the second time. She doesn't like the feature so she doesn't care if it comes back or not. Probably eventually will. What's strange is that we have essentially the same computers, both always have internet access and we both use the latest free version of CCleaner. My Easy Clean has never vanished on its own. Go figure.
  6. This is really strange. Just now, I closed my browser (FF) and attempted to reopen it but it said it wasn't closed. I hit the prompt to close. Then just for the heck of it, I opened CCleaner and lo and behold, the Easy Clean mode returned! This whole thing is really baffling to me because I didn't think it was possible for a particular feature in a program to just simply disappear.
  7. Opportunity to reduce the CC window

    It's been discussed before and it was a deliberate decision by Piriform to make it a bigger minimum size. They have said that they are "working toward" making it more responsive to the actual display size in use, but no timescale has been given and I wouldn't hold your breath. If your CC window is going off screen so that you can't get to the 'clean' or 'analyze' buttons then this post explains how you can fix that:
  8. Hello, I would like to have an opportunity to reduce the CC window. Like it was possible before the window was changed to Win10 style. If the CC window is opened on a small laptop even with high resolution it doesn't fit proper.
  9. Defrag Failed

    Running Defraggler (free version) v2.22.995 (64 bit) on Windows 7 Ultimate x64. I have a brand new 14Tb hard disk drive, of which I've used 3.7Tb. Defrag of this drive fails after a short time, telling me that there is 'not enough free space. There is 9.0Tb of free space on this drive. In the lower details panel, capacity is listed as 4 000 383 324 160 bytes (12.7Tb) - when it should be listed as 14 000 383 324 160 bytes - the first digit is truncated. Used space is given as 4 062 884 646 912 bytes (3.7Tb). Free space is given as 9 937 498 677 248 bytes (9.0Tb) Printscreen attached (Drive G:). Pretty sure this is unintended program execution.....

  11. Yes I was connected to the internet the whole time. I rarely shut down my PC. I did not make any tweaks to the registry. I used the Easy Clean mode a few times, and also viewed it several times to see how many cookies were being added but didn't use it.
  12. Not clearing history

    It seems history cleaning in edge is broken again in the latest version
  13. We have had a few reports of this. Just to confirm - were you connected to the internet the whole time? Have you made any custom tweaks to CCleaner registry entries or blocks in your Windows hosts file?
  14. Subscription pop up keep comming up

    Ok, thx for your quick answer ! I've contacted the support and waiting for theme to answer.
  15. Wouldn't it be a lot easier for everyone concerned if Piriform included Waterfox by default?
  16. 1. Windows 10 2. Defraggler free downloaded from CCleaner.com 3. It started off at 10% fragmentation, I noticed that C drive is missing from the system defragmenter while it's running. I Stopped the defrag when it was down to 1% fragmentation (reckoning it's good enough and wanting to see if that brings C back into the list on the system defragmenter) but C remains missing there. I've tried rebooting and also clicking into defragment from C drive's context menu. 4. Yes, I can still use defraggler on C Thank you in advance
  17. Version 5.57 7182 (64-bit) won't display Easy Clean mode. It just disappears! I already reinstalled it once and it came back, but now it disappeared again. I even restarted my system but that didn't work. How this is possible is beyond me. This is obviously a bug. Other than reinstalling it again, is there anything else that can be done to restore the Easy Clean mode?
  18. CCleaner free and Windows 10 update files

    I witness just that all the time by looking at the backup file size of the registry that Tweaking.com Registry Backup makes. After updates are installed the registry grows a tiny amount in size, a few days later Windows does something to reduce the registry size all on its own.
  19. Let's start with some information that will help troubleshoot. What version of windows? What version number of defraggler, and from where did you download it? When you ran defraggler I assume you used it to defrag the c drive, did it finish the job? or did it error out? Can you still defrag the drive in defraggler?
  20. perhaps try this: open your windows-explorer -> with your mouse on your c-drive click right -> kontextmenue -> properties -> tools -> optimize
  21. musik videos

    silbermond - durch die nacht (a band from eastgermany too, the song is early in the 2000 i mean...)
  22. Yesterday
  23. No, I explicitly did not tick that option when installing. I can launch the default windows defragmenter just fine--it just doesn't show the C: drive as an option.
  24. musik videos

    Superb Youtube Video... and music is also good
  25. Avast Hidden Install

    Since 2010 there has been a third-party offer of some sort in the CCleaner installer to help pay the bills ... and since 2010 people have been asking why offers have "suddenly" started to appear. These days most users don't see a third-party offer in the CCleaner installer - not because it's mysteriously hidden, but because there are some smarter rules set up in the installer not to bother offering something if the user has already seen that offer in the past x months, if they've already got it installed, or (in the case of AV) if they seem to already have an alternative running. (And of course there's no offer with the automatic updates.) Since it doesn't do anyone any good if a user accidentally installs something they don't actually want, CCleaner deliberately made its offers more prominent than in most other installers and, as per the screenshots above, the Avast banner was changed to a rather vivid purple and orange to make it even more eye-catching and hard to miss. But some people do still miss it. And then they get angry about it. On the "to-do" list for the development team (who greatly prefer to have happy users than angry users) is overhauling the installer flow with a new interface to help get rid of this accidental installation problem. In the meantime, as per nukecad's response, CCleaner also has a "slim installer" version with no offers.
  26. Error connecting to publishing server

    Is there an update here. It is still not working.
  27. Avast Hidden Install

    Because as explained above in APPichaels' first post if you had installed it once then it had set a flag in the registry to tell CCleaner not to show you the offer again. To avoid any issues with unwanted Avast (or google toolbar) installs most regular users here use the 'Slim' installer from the builds page, that does not contain any offer. https://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/builds
  28. Invalid drive size

    Thanks. Have used the support ticket link.

      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.
