  3. Deletes MS Office 365

    True nuff
  4. Deletes MS Office 365

    True, it's OT. But sometimes going OT (thinking 'outside the box') helps work out just what the problem may be.
  5. Deletes MS Office 365

    We're getting a bit OT but it only default saves to onedrive you can still use local drive instead
  6. Deletes MS Office 365

    As I understand it 365 is cloud based, saves everything in the cloud (if you work offline it uploads that work next time you connect) and so can sync documents from the cloud to all your devices, and any other device if you log on to 365. There again I've used an alternative to Office for years.
  7. Deletes MS Office 365

    AFAIK 365 installs its programs, the subscription just means it'll give you yearly versions of office
  8. Deletes MS Office 365

    It's telling that Custom Clean removes them but not Easy Clean. Now if we had a list of the Easy Clean defaults to compare with your Custom settings then it would be easier to see what's different between them. But AFAIK a list of EC defaults has not yet been published.
  9. pdf files

    Select "Documents" in the wizard - it will pick up Word, excel and PDF but will narrow down the file type list for you.
  10. Deletes MS Office 365

    Thanks for replying nukecad, no they are greyed out with no ticks
  11. pdf files

    Is there a way I can search only for pdf files in recuva?
  12. Deletes MS Office 365

    In Custom Clean, on the Windows tab under 'System' do you have 'Start Menu Shortcuts' and Desktop Shortcuts' ticked? I believe they are unticked by default (which will also the be default of Easy Clean) but you may have inadvertently ticked them somehow.
  13. Windows' built-in defragger tends to not produce good results when dealing with mechanical drives mostly filled with multiGB files. And refuses to defrag an SSD.
  14. Deletes MS Office 365

    Dave CCleaner: Applications show both Office 2013 and Office 2016, both are unticked. However, I suspect that you are right it is the Start Menu and Desktop shortcuts that are disappearing which means that I have to re-install to get them back. Whether it is actually CCleaner which is the cause or not, I cannot prove. The EasyClean doesn't have this effect, just the Custom Clean. Thanks to all for your replies and help.
  15. Malware

    Usually those online scanning sites are using a Linux/Unix version that might detect something, whereas their Windows versions may not. Classic example is ClamAV detecting something when for instance scanning on Jotti, then the Windows version ClamWin detecting nothing. Also if an online scanning site has integrated a Chinese AV those seem to pick up allot of English language software.
  16. Windows 10 built in defrag tool won't defragment files over 64MB in size. Allot of 3rd party defrag tools will defrag with no file size limitation - which in turn can cause System Restore Points to start disappearing. More strange is the potential loss of overall hard disk space supposedly not tied to System Restore Points, etc., with hard disk space that mysteriously can't be reclaimed - just search the forums for that. In my opinion when using 3rd party defrag tools on the system disk where Windows is installed it's better to just have them defrag only the fragmented files, i.e.; via the file list like what Defraggler and umpteen others have and then let Windows itself deal with optimization. If you do things that way your defrag's will be done surprisingly fast, you won't have to disable the built in optimization, and the built in optimization won't have to undo a ton of stuff 3rd party defrag tools do differently.
  17. Deletes MS Office 365

    Hi Dave, CeeDee seems to be talking about Office 365, which is cloud based not installed. (Although it will install offline versions of the software I don't see a clean removing them).
  18. Yes it's normal. All defrag tools use different methods, and different rules/settings. All will show different levels of fragmantation depending on those rules/settings. What may be especially relevant here is that they often have settings to ingnore files with less than 'X' fragements, or files that are less than 'Y' KB in size (or more than 'Z' KB in size). Obviously if they have different settings for those then they will show different levels.
  19. Deletes MS Office 365

    Actually uninstalling software is a separate function under Tools > Uninstall. What shows up in your list of Applications to clean under Custom Clean > Applications? Also under Custom Clean > Windows. Are you certain that Office is being completely uninstalled? Or is it just that the Start Menu and Desktop shortcuts have been wiped?
  20. One has to ask that if defraggler (and other aftermarket d/f's) are cpu heavy why don't you use Windows defragger? In Win 8 onwards with standard settings you will get a monthly defrafg of your HDD and SSD drives anyway if certain conditions are met. Sometimes Widows can look after itself quite well.
  21. Deletes MS Office 365

    I'm not sure just what you mean by "deletes Office 365"? CCleaner should not delete any programme, only it's junk files. Office 365 is online anyway so isn't 'installed' on your computer. Do you mean that your automatic login is being removed? Something else? Easy Clean uses default cleaning rules set by Piriform. Custom clean uses your own settings/preferences. Try this If it's your login that's being removed then I believe (not sure) that by default Office 365 stores them with IE passwords. Open Custom Clean and under Internet Explorer untick 'Saved Passwords' (and possibly Autocomplete form history). If you are using a different browser to access Office 365 then untick 'Saved Passwords' for that browser. (This doesn't seem to be a registry cleaner issue, but just in case - don't use the registry cleaner, especially with Windows 10).
  22. Malware

    Stubs for optional downloading Avast and Chrome are still in the full build. As I recall, problems in the past have been specific to Eset vs the toolbar. On VirusTotal, at least, 5.58 shows no false positives - including WebRoot's engine.
  23. Very small effect on the life of the SSD. I do it only a few times a year. Reduces CPU overhead when accessing fragmented files. And performing this eliminates I/O bottleneck for this experiment so it is clear the process is CPU constrained. Ridiculous CPU usage when defragging mechanical drives as well.
  24. Malware

    @dave was Avast and Chrome also removed? if not, would those offerings not also be flagged as 'malware' by some security software?
  25. I have to ask the obvious question - why are you defragging your SSD? due to the physical nature of how SSD's use NAND cell memory and the near-instantaneous access speeds between the memory blocks, there is simply no benefit to gain and a lot of unnecessary I/O to loss when using DF on SSD's.
  26. Winapp2.ini additions

    Thanks for the new and revised entries. Winapp2.ini update: https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/56f81edca62b5fb4653d0a1a5801e6fbc52f8fc4
  27. If I use Easyclean then all appears to go well, however if I use the main CCleaner, it deletes Office 365 which I have to re-install. Any ideas why this happens please?

      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.
