  2. Bug recycle bin

    Problem solved. I did not understand that I had to stay on Custom Clean to analyze. This new Easy Clean option is really useless, it misleads many people. Thanks
  3. I tried to download the list view of the files recovered/identified by Recova (after deep scan). No problem concerning the process in itself. But, there are only 3 columns in the imported list (filename, size, path), instead of more in the list produced by recuva when it is running). There are filters indeed, but they do not work when the download of the view is done. One very important column is missing : the state of the files (i.e excellent, vs poor, vs very poor vs unrecoverable). That information would be highly helpful to sort out the files afterward (ggod ones and bad ones typically). In my case there are many many files recovered. Did I miss something (some parameter I did not see and that would for the addition the parameter "state") ? Or is it something only available in Recuva professional ? Many thanks in advance for your help.

  6. Bug recycle bin

    Yes I use Custom Clean look pic. A lot of people has this problem on french and english forums discussion.
  7. Avast Hidden Install

    Constructive criticism is always welcome. Not always fun to read - but still helpful. Can't promise that everything will move at the pace that people would like - but everything here gets read and taken into consideration. Even prior commercial decisions are subject to review if we can find a smarter (ie: less annoying) way to achieve the same objective.
  8. Whats wrong with this Company?

    The license is only for a year now for new purchases, there’s a major discussion of this on another thread where users with older licenses are receiving an expired message: Mine states it has expired but continues to work with all the Pro features, I purchased what was listed as a lifetime license, support was for 1 year & it is this which has expired.
  9. I purchased CCleaner on 02.04.2019 with Cleverbridge (ID: 170362239), and paid with Paypal. Now i got a Message that the License is expired. Whats wrong with CCleaner??? And no, i didn`t install my Key on more then 1 Computer.
  10. Avast Hidden Install

    Sorry, but exactly the same argument was/is used for the main product when users keep suggesting putting the Registry Cleaner into Tools. "It's too difficult to change the sidebar". But that seems not to be the case, a new button for Easy Clean was soon put in there when wanted. I note that in another thread it has been said that they are now looking at moving the Reg Cleaner. BTW. It is good to see that, in the person of @Dave CCleaner, Piriform does seem to be taking more of an active role in the forums and listening to user opinions. As regular members here we can sometimes be pretty critical of what we see as faults with CCleaner, mainly as a desire to see an improved product.
  11. Avast Hidden Install

    TBD, but if we end up with something like @Andavari's proposed design, the concept of a "default" would only apply to the product configuration settings and third party options would require an explicit YES/NO decision - but probably without the cartoon characters.
  12. It's 7.5 years and 12 versions later now. It is really pathetic to see that nothing has happened all that time. How hard can it be to change 3 bitmaps? -=Wim=-
  13. Nightmare with CCleaner Licenses

    While the folks here on the public forum can probably give you general advice on what to do, your best route would probably be customer support (support@ccleaner.com) since they can see the details of your account. What is most likely that you'll need to do though is: Go into CCleaner Options > About > Upgrade to Pro Enter your name and Copy-Paste the license key from the confirmation email of your most recent order and hit "Register" ... and then you should see your expiry date showing as sometime in 2020.
  14. Avast Hidden Install

    Will 'Yes' still be the default ?
  15. Avast Hidden Install

    Overhauling something that has been baked into the installer since 2010 is not exactly an overnight job. There's no official date for the change to be made, and the execution may still undergo some alterations and tweaks, but the final result ... ... will most likely bear an uncanny resemblance to this.

  18. Ccleaner use with SSD (solid state drive)

    Unfortunately the reason why we have TRIM makes this impossible. There is no indication to the SSD controller that a page has been deleted. The deletion is executed by a change to the bit status in the cluster bit map metafile. Whilst the controller can see that a page has been updated, it doesn't know that the page is a bitmap, or what a bitmap is - or what a file is for that matter. So the O/S has to tell the SSD what to do, with TRIM.

  21. .NET Framework 4.8

    good wish :-) i mean ms has another wishes with his versions of netframework... from the beginning with 1 and 1.1 and 2 - two is not compatible with one and so on (i remember me darkly that are two different developer) also the different versions of the 2 dont be good and the installation progress was long sometimes also bad and the whole net-installation was for the toilet :-) i have 4.8 not installed. i take only what this or one needed to be run - this also saves me a lot of updates
  22. Sorry, I haven't been checking as often. I just got the email. I see both players but when I uninstall the 32-bit player, both are uninstalled. Now I don't have a VLC player.
  23. .NET Framework 4.8

    I wish they'd do clean installs only, i.e.; completely remove the old and install the new with full backwards compatibility because just the updates alone have corrupted it umpteen times on older Windows systems for me. I'll pass on manually downloading and installing it, and just wait to see if Automatic Updates forces it upon me at some point.
  24. Bug recycle bin

    Are you using 'Easy Clean' or 'Custom Clean'? Easy Clean uses Piriforms own set defaults, which I think includes emptying the bin. So if you don't want it to do that the use Custom Clean, which is simply the way things used to work before EC came along.
  25. Bug recycle bin

    Problem with last version v5.58.7209 (64bit) Ccleaner delete files in my recycle bin, I uncheck this option and don't work. I prefer to delete the recycle bin manually, first time this option does not work. Thanks for your reply.
  26. Ccleaner use with SSD (solid state drive)

    for anyone interested, type this command to test is TRIM of ON; fsutil behavior query DisableDeleteNotify Disabled means it's ON. and this command from an elevated command prompt to do a TRIM; defrag %systemdrive% /L /V

      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.
