    Thank you all for your advice. I was able to fix the problem. I had no idea so many app could run in the background.

  4. Shortcut icon image

    Sounds like old outdated icon/thumbnail cache to me which can cause the wrong icon/thumbnail to display, and if that's the case the solution is easy: 1. Click Cortana/Search, and type in Disk Cleanup, and click it when found. 2. Select the C:\ drive, or the drive letter you have Windows 10 installed on. 3. Scroll down the list and select Thumbnails. 4. Click Ok, then when another dialog opens click Delete. You may have to Sign Out or restart your computer for the icon/thumbnail cache to refresh.
  5. CCleaner Pro Lifetime Licence - why has it expired?

    @Kenjinn Yes that is Recuva. Looks like you purchased in 2014. As such you purchased by version. It came with a year of free updates and priority support. Your priority support from that purchase ended in 2015. If you are not in a business and do not need priority support then, as you may have noticed, the product still works fine.
  6. Shortcut icon image

    it seems to be a shortcut with html or other browserbendings "to open with the standard-browser" normally takes windows-shortcut automatically the icon image from the target that open it (perhaps word, excel, firefox, txt or so) -> if it is an html or pdf-file association for the "default-browser" to open it -> in this case ccleaner-browser than takes this icon -> you can change this with choose another default-browser (i think in w10 there is internet-explorer or edge-browser...or what you will) and pdf and other file association in context with browser-openings if you make an office-shortcut for example with an *.docx -> is there also the ccleaner-browser-icon?
  7. ublock users

    ublock v1.21.8 gorhill released this Aug 18, 2019 This is a release for Opera-based browsers only. Add "Relax blocking mode" command to Opera manifest
  8. Shortcut icon image

    Try this, it says 7 & Vista but its been updated for 10 : https://www.howtogeek.com/howto/13631/customize-your-icons-in-windows-7-and-vista/
  9. Shortcut icon image

    I assume we are talking about desktop shortcuts? I'm on my phone at the moment but from memory you would change a shortcut icon by right clicking it and going into the properties. There is a button in there to "Change Icon" or similar wording. Are you saying that all newly created shortcuts are being given a CC style icon? If so then that's something that's something that the browser developers should be made aware if to get that behaviour stopped. I'd have to look up how you can stop it yourself once I'm back on a Windows computer.
  10. The order cofirmation you have attached is for Recuva, not CCleaner................unless it was bundled with CCleaner?
  11. Shortcut icon image

    The reference you cite is for correcting the icon for applications. What about when creating new shortcuts when using New/Shortcut?
  12. I have version 5.60.7307 installed and am trying to update to version 5.61.7392. I get this error: 0x2f08: A direct request will change a secure to a non-secure connection. With these titles in boxes below: REGISTER PURCHASE CANCEL. [the numbers in the error code above, I used zeros because I could not tell if they are o's or zeros??] I renewed my annual subscription on I believe 07 06 2019 for one year to CCleaner Professional. I have Registered twice(2 times) but do not solve the problem. Here I have wasted 2 hours trying to figure this out. Please help!!!! How can I update??? What is the problem??? Sincerely, Gerald B.

  14. Shortcut icon image

    It sounds like you have accepted the offer for the new CC browser when you installed CCleaner. See here how to reset your Icons, it gives an example for PDFs but you use the same process for other types of file as well.
  15. I just downloaded the latest version of CCleaner free. All my short icons have changed to . How can I get the old Windows 10 default icon image for shortcuts?
  16. Close Browser Prompt

    The latest version (5.61.7392 64-bit on W10) and one before that has some issues with the prompt. 1. The browser name is missing 2. Even if I select do not show this message again it will ask again on the next clean. I'm using custom clean and clicked on Cancel because I don't want to close the browser. A Yes / No prompt would be better for a user to understand.
  17. I don't ever recall this product being a yearly sub, if it was i would never have bought it in the first place.
  18. With 39 releases since v5.22 a lot has changed. Given that browsers are always changing, making browser cleaning fairly rapidly moving target, you are not going to get the best out of CCleaner if you are more than a few versions out of date. I would recommend a quick trip to https://www.ccleaner.com/ccleaner/download to grab the latest version.
  19. CCleaner for Mac 1.17 Released

    As some of you may have noticed, the developers have been putting quite a bit of focus on CCleaner for our Mac users over the past few months. Thanks in no small part to the users who have been providing feedback on how we've been working with Catalina, we are now able to officially support the macOS Catalina beta with the new CCleaner for Mac 1.17 release. We have also added a new large file finder feature that users have been requesting and a number of translation improvements for our European and Latin American customers, along with browser cleaning enhancements and bug fixes. More information in the official release announcement:
  20. I downloaded it ages ago and have only just tried it out.
  21. Are you sure you got the version number for CCleaner right? The latest version is 5.61 https://forum.piriform.com/topic/54650-ccleaner-v5617392/?tab=comments#comment-308866
  22. 5.60 Update Problem

    The "Slim Build" leaves out the optional third party offers in the installation process that fund the distribution of the free version. It was originally created for folks who were getting false positive alerts on the Google Toolbar offer. Although the Google Toolbar offer was removed as of version 5.58 (back in June) we have retained the Slim Build for vision-impaired users whose screen-readers may have trouble with the extra information on the installer screen, and handle some additional installation problems. Should generally try the full version first though. The Slim Build is often released at the same time as the regular build - but not always.
  23. Tried out CCleaner for the first time (3 passes free space wipe on C and E drives. Next time I started Chrome the home page was Yahoo search, not Google. Also, the password box under settings was full of defunct passwords and long ago deleted bookmarks reappeared. What could have caused this? CCleaner v5.22.5724 free version. Also, when you search in the CCleaner cookies list, is that search word stored/a file created or modified?
  24. A few Windows 10 questions

    use the Media Creation Tool, found here; https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10 (whoops, sorry nukecad, my browser never showed there was a page 2 until i posted - not the first time it's done that either!)

  27. A few Windows 10 questions

    I am planning to upgrade to Windows 10. Anyone knows the download link to Windows 10 ISO?

      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.
