  1. Today
  2. Hello, firstly I cannot stress enough to remove that image as contains emails. Some may be personal. The next is NOTHING other than windows built-in disc cleaner should attempt to remove these folders. Yes, it might take hours. The error is telling you to validate your Outlook Express account configuration. Specifically, if you click on the Tools menu in Outlook Express, then click on the Accounts menu. Finally, it is also possible that your mail server may simply be down. It does happen.
  3. No download

    I am in Milan, Italy.
  4. Drive wipe

    Failing that use windirstat to find the culprit folder. https://windirstat.net/
  5. No download

    As you say that you are not fluent in English could I ask what country you are in? It may make a difference. There is a problem at the moment with some countries using IP adresses that were originally issued to other countries.
  6. No download

    No result. Nothing has changed, void window appears with a circle turning in center.
  7. Search

    I'm not sure I entirely understand the question. Are you asking is it better to do a search filter before you scan? If so, no it's better to run the scan then fill in the search/filter box
  8. Search

    Being somewhat brain dead due repeated blows to my head from my wife of 20+ years of marriage and not completely computer literate.(or literate at all sometimes these days) I wondering that when you run a scan with Recuva can best to search for specific software?
  9. The Wrong Temperature Thread

    Sadly there is no current fix for this and as it's a long-lived bug with a variety of manufacturers may not be fixable in the short-term.

    @ottoceri: Try these links: CCleaner: https://www.ccleaner.com/ccleaner/download/standard Recuva: https://www.ccleaner.com/recuva/download/standard
  11. No download

    I am 90 yeas old and not fluent in english. On 21/4 I purchased CCleaner and Recuva .I use a PC with Edge, Win 10 and GData antivirus. It is impossible to make download for both. By clicking on "downlaod" in the email received by cleverbridge a void windows opens with a rotating circle inside and no subsequent action. I have tried to find and answer by asking Google but with no result. Can you suggest me a solution or where I can find one? Many Thanks
  12. Drive wipe

    Try disabling Hidden Files and Folders in Windows. I can't remember if it hides those files, or if they're just plainly visible.
  13. Hello. I bought and installed a full copy of CCleaner for one the work computers on Tuesday 23rd April, in order to combat the Windows Update Cleaner's inability to clear said updates from the C: drive. I ran the CCleaner and not only did it fail to clear the old updates, but I am now prevented from receiving ANY e-mails through Outlook. Anyone with any idea why this has happened, and what to do about it? Thanks.
  14. I am also facing the same issue. Can anyone be told me how to resolve this issue?
  15. The Wrong Temperature Thread

  18. CCleaner for Mac hangs

    I've asked those above for attention as that was my main/only idea
  19. CCleaner for Mac hangs

    Nergal, I have never had to close Chrome or turn off sync before, but did so, and it hangs in exactly the same place. Any other suggestions? Mark
  20. CCleaner for Mac hangs

    See my answer here And maybe come back and tell us if it helped.
  21. CCleaner for Mac hangs

    I have CCleaner Free 1.15.507 running on a Macbook Pro. I have used CCleaner for years without trouble. I went to run it and it asked me to upgrade to 1.15 so I did. Now whenever I run it, it hangs at 93% while looking at Google Chrome Internet Cache. I have uninstalled and reinstalled CCleaner, rebooted, done all the basics. This is the screen where it stops working. Any suggestions?
  22. First, I am running windows 10 with latest updates, as well as latest release of CCleaner Pro. Recently noticed that I am no longer being notified that CCleaner cleaned MS Edge upon exit, and I am getting new notifications now after exiting MS Outlook that CCleaner cleaned Internet Explorer (?). I always received CCleaner notifications after exiting EDGE, and never before received notifications after exiting Outlook. Very strange. I have made no changes to default settings and there is nothing in the settings options that would explain this behavior. Any ideas? Other than this, my machine runs extremely well and fast. Thanks. . . - Trashbuster
  23. Drive wipe

    Look in the root directory for example if you ran it on drive C: look in drive C: but don't go into any sub-folders, there should be files or folders that have allot of Z's in the name, those would be the file created during the wipe and should be large in size.
  24. Drive wipe

    im am having an issue with drive wipe i had about 30gb give or take a few gig. it show i had only 600mb of space ran it again nothing restarted my pc and got back 10gb of space does anyone know where the file is so i can delete it
  25. Just an update... 5.38.6357 (64-bit) FREE version on Win 7. It's now been 18 days and the problem has not recurred. The solution... I opened regedit and searched for Piriform (match whole string only), and for every result, I checked the nested CCleaner key and it's entries. Any that said update I deleted, and any that said 'monitor' or 'monitoring', I changed the value from 1 to zero (0). Good luck to all that have had this problem. I hope this works for you as well. Remember to "export" the registry to a .reg file, before editing the registry.
  26. Version 5.56.7144

    I've merged your new topic with this one with exact same title name. Please try not to duplicate topics because you'll end up having people answering questions in two locations. ------------- As for the delay when cleaning. I think some users noted that also having Cookies ticked/enabled under Internet Explorer could also cause a slow down - this was a few versions ago. Edit: I've personally noticed it mostly with having History ticked/enabled under Internet Explorer. Sometimes it will clean it very quickly, and sometimes it will take 10-15 seconds (maybe longer).
  27. Application not found

    I've never seen that Explorer.exe dialog error ever before, rather using the installed version or portable version of CCleaner. Maybe this won't fix anything, but perhaps worth a try: If you go into your version of CC Portable and open 'Options > Settings', then untick/disable both Recycle Bin options, followed by rebooting your system, and then after rebooting re-enable both Recycle Bin options if it will work as intended. Seems like either some location, permissions, UAC, or registration issue of the context menu items.

      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.
