  3. Sloooow

    The latest build 5.58.7209 is the slowest I have ever had. Don't care for the new easy screen. Had trouble closing IE11, had to force close. Never had to do that before. It hung up for several minutes at 20%. Also, don't like the need to uncheck Avast. It is a pain to uninstall. I have never used Opera, but it wanted to process files. In all the years I have used CCleaner, this is my first issue.
  4. Installed latest version of ccleaner

    if you took the offered option to backup the registry before removing stuff then restore it using that file and see if everything returns to normal. put simply THERE IS NO NEED TO CLEAN THE REGISTRY. official MS word on the matter; https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2563254/microsoft-support-policy-for-the-use-of-registry-cleaning-utilities what you are entrusting CCleaner with is the Dev team keeping up with all the Win10 regular releases - and let's be honest here, this is the team who regularly release buggy code.
  5. Malware

    check it's not the embedded Avast and Chrome offering. get the portable build of CC and see if Webroot flags that, the portable build does not have any offerings. if it doesn't, than it's most likely those 'extra features' they push with the normal build. if so, add CC to Webroot's whitelist.
  6. 14 months since the last release - that should tell you all you need to know.
  7. Just got advised of your post... yup, almost a year ago this started... Guess they're not listening, eh? I really can't understand why they either think this is not an issue to address or that they've not found the solution to the problem or someone who is from the company is not reading the forum(s). Why have a forum for customers if they do not pay attention to the customers? Image/Imagery? Fake? False? Deceivers? A lot of those out there. You can tell by their bottom line and market share most of the time. These are the only three possible scenarios that could be the case. The first is just plain idiocy, the second is lack of technical capability, the third is flat out stupid laziness indicating they really don't want our business. Why buy from a company whose products are buggy and who do not care enough to address the issues - for years?
  8. CCleaner has been known to get it wrong as well. Interestingly, not all three products get it wrong at the same time so they must have their own methods of determining what makes up a SSD or not.
  9. Still a year later and no change. Very disappointing.
  10. I can't believe that it is over a full year and this still hasn't been fixed. Very disappointed! I am still experiencing this horrible problematic bug on many PCs. Have they abandoned defraggler due to SSDs becoming more prevalent?

  12. Error connecting to publishing server

    I encountered this same problem today (15-Jun-2019). I haven't tried to publish a Speccy profile since 14-Mar-2019 so I don't know if it's a temporary glitch or if the server has been down since Killermaco reported this problem in early May 2019. ----------- 32-bit Vista Home Premium SP2 * Firefox ESR v52.9.0 * Norton Security Deluxe v22.15.2.22 * Speccy Portable v1.32.740
  13. what temporary files we are talking about? c:\windows\temp? c:\users\you\appdata\local\temp? if ccleaner not works fast enought/hangs... windows disk cleanup take is time too... try this open your windows-explorer go to "c:\windows\temp" in this folder -> "select all" (subfolders and files in temp) -> delete it go to c:\users\you\appdata\local\temp in this folder -> "select all" (subfolders and files in temp) -> delete it ps: i have it in ccleaner -> includelist with option "with files and subfolders"
  14. I have no message on what was posted in the forum in 2012 or 2013. When I bought it in 2014, the word annual or expiration date did not appear on any page I saw or in any email I received. I also did not buy it from some obscure retailer, as suggested in some answers, but directly from the Piriform website. If a company want to be honest with their clients, they put the important information clearly visible on the pages and not hidden in some obscure EULA that is almost impossible to read.

  17. Malware

  19. Installed latest version of ccleaner

    Windows 10. I believe I did use the registry part. Why would that disable the USB ports?
  20. Installed latest version of ccleaner

    Did you use the registry cleaner part of CCleaner ? What operating system do you have?
  21. Installed latest version of ccleaner

    Somehow it appears the USB ports have been disabled per the installation and execution of ccleaner.
  22. I purchased and installed a new versions of ccleaner yesterday. The software appeared to work great as my PC ran much faster. After rebooting my machine today it looks like my keyboard and mouse are not functioning. After rebooting I was presented with a keyboard screen with different country formats. The keyboard does not function at all! I
  23. Just in case we start to get posts about Firefox saved logins and passwords being cleared - It's not CCleaner doing it, it's AVG's password protection being too zealous: (They are still there, just being blocked). https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/avg-password-protection-blocked-firefoxs-access-to-saved-passwords/
  24. Build 5.58.7209 hangs on Temp folder

    If you've not run CCleaner before, or if it's been a while since you cleaned, then it may simply be that there are a lot of them and so it's taking time? We've seen this before and one trick that usually works is to use the built in Windows Disk Cleanup to clear the initial backlog of temporary system files. (Disk Cleanup will also take a long time). After doing that then run CCleaner to get rid of the things that Disk Cleanup doesn't. CCleaner should run normally from then on.

  26. CCleaner always hangs @ 26% - and if I go to "Custom Clean" and deselect Temporary Files, works OK - so can only assume it's the Temp Folder that's the culprit. Any suggestions?

      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.
