  3. A new Button to make CCL more efficient..

    The "trackers" that CCleaner reports are not what anyone reasonable would regard as trackers. See the link below the red text in my signature.
  4. @APMichael Thanks! That fixed it. I guess it wasn't on my end. Piriform need to fix it. @Nergal Typo. I have 5.56. Thanks again!
  5. Hello all. A friend is getting an HP laptop that'll be using Windows 10 in S Mode. She's currently using CCleaner Slim on her desktop and I know that cannot be installed on an S Mode operating system. Does anyone know if CCleaner Portable on a USB stick will work or is she limited to the built-in Windows cleaning tools? Any information appreciated.
  6. A new Button to make CCL more efficient..

    Regarding the tracker option, I never use it. Instead I just revert the settings to how the used to be in earlier builds...... Open CCleaner and click on Options..Advanced. Then put a dot in the Advanced report. Now run CCleaner and you will see what it is finding if you right click on the result and ask it to show details.
  7. It would be better if Ccleaner's 'Run' button would change to 'Close' button after it is pressed, so there isn't any moving the cursor to close CCL after cleaning.. given that the computer is essentially the epitome of efficiency.. At least they're trying to make it thus... Or, if after cleaning, Ccleaner would popup the cleaning details for 5-seconds, then close itself.. _________________ I run Ccleaner every-time I shutdown Firefox.. Lately CCL is finding about 200 trackers for a half hour session in YouTube.. Last week CCL found 11,000 trackers.. The day before 7,000 trackers.. I am heyoka sorcerer.. I see all reality.. I broke out of 'the box'.. I publish a lot of new mindish science for my kind.. I'm supposing trackers are people at the helm of major internet anomalies, who desperately need to and want to know new stuff, but don't have what it takes to understand any newness, who believe if they follow me around on the Web, they'll learn stuff their mummies and daddies and schools couldn't teach them.. It's like they have zero respect for my privacy.. Their incessant poking their noses in my business, and their blocking my critical messages to humanity, makes me feel like those turd are playing me like they believe I'm their video game, and their daddy they never had.. Gives me the feel that they desperately want to suckle off of me: milk, blood, energy, and wisdom.. I ain't their daddy nor mummy.. I wish they could and would just wake-up, and grow-up, and go away... I have installed the new Firefox, that claims to block all trackers.. It doesn't.. It can't yet.. Seems there isn't anything that can fully block trackers.. I've installed Duckgogo security addon, and a couple tracker blockers, noscript, and adblock, and have Firefox set to block all trackers.. Still the blackhatter cocaino-damaged little meat-monkeys get in, essentially informing right in my face that I do not have any rights to privacy... Coke makes them believe they are gods.. They ain't my gods... Do trackers do any harm to the operation of the computer..? Do trackers slow down the operation of the computer..? Are trackers a threat..? Are Yahoo and Google selling high-demand tracker hookups to clients..? Do they have a 'trackers shopping-list'..? Why would I have got tagged by 11,000 trackers..? Why is it so important to someone which YouTube videos I view, and what I search for in Google..? Does it make them feel almighty powerful to pester and irritate Innocence, thinkers, writers, love, and truth..? Will there ever be a public 'opt-out of trackers' option switch..? Is there..?
  8. Winapp2.ini additions

    Unfortunately, Piriform never updated the manual, so the manual still only mentions Mozilla-based browsers. But it also works for Chromium-based browsers. Correct, the section "Google Chrome" in CCleaner is responsible for all Chromium-based browsers at the same time. It is not possible to clean each of them individually. If you put only the file Winapp2.ini in CCleaner's program folder, only the entries of the file Winapp2.ini will clean the Brave browser. However, if you want a complete cleaning, with the built-in entries of CCleaner, you have to add the "CustomLocation1" in your ccleaner.ini.

    Just replace the word firefox with CHROME for it to work

  11. Winapp2.ini additions

    It's not in there by default, you have to manually create it. And you'll need to input it in order for CCleaner to detect and clean a "clone" of Chrome/Chromium if it doesn't already clean the browser - the same would go if for instance using a portable version of any browser. What CCleaner cleans will be under the "Google Chrome" heading in CCleaner.
  12. Make sure Chrome isn't running in the background as a process, it has to be configured to not do that if I'm remembering correctly. See here: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/40285-ccleaner-not-deleting-google-chrome-history-fix/
  13. Winapp2.ini additions

    I don't think you sent me the right link because everything in there is about Mozilla based browsers, not Chromium. Not even "CustomLocation" exist in ccleaner.ini Do you mean that the "Chrome" section in CCleaner (both for app cleaning in the main cleaning section and in settings for saving cookies) is responsible for both Chrome and Brave at the same time and I can't clean each of them, separately? Does it work out of the box CCleaner + winapp2.ini then or do I need to make some changes?

    @judex6 sorry for the late response. At the moment, each product in the bundle is a separate download: CCleaner (https://download.ccleaner.com/ccsetup556.exe), Defraggler (https://www.ccleaner.com/defraggler/download/standard), Recuva (https://www.ccleaner.com/recuva/download/standard) and Speccy (https://www.ccleaner.com/speccy/download/standard).
  15. Problems adding computers

    @jeppari after you install CCleaner (https://download.ccleaner.com/ccsetup556.exe) on your other PCs the serial key code that you got when you purchased online should work to activate those as well (Menu Options > About > Upgrade to Pro). Same with the additional software that comes with the bundle - Defraggler (https://www.ccleaner.com/defraggler/download/standard), Recuva (https://www.ccleaner.com/recuva/download/standard) and Speccy (https://www.ccleaner.com/speccy/download/standard)
  16. Just to note 5.51 is not the latest. 5.56 is the latest as of this writing. Http://Ccleaner.com/ccleaner/builds
  17. There are already some threads on this issue: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/53697-cookies/ https://forum.piriform.com/topic/53571-ccleaner-does-not-see-or-delete-cookies-anymore/ Maybe this will help: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/53697-cookies/?tab=comments#comment-305366
  18. When I run the cleaner I get a message saying Chrome needs to be closed. But I'v already closed it. Then when I wait, it says Chrome is taking a long tome to respond. Of course it is! It's closed! Then if I check that I want it to force Chrome to close, it wipes out all my extensions for Chrome and I have to reinstall. This is enough to make me want my money back.
  19. Today I launched CCleaner (version 5.51.7644--the latest) and went to make some changes to cookies I save and found that CCleaner no longer shows the active cookies on my system. I'm running the latest Firefox (66.0.3 32-bit) as my browser. As far as I'm aware, the only change I've made to anything in my system is renaming the pinned Taskbar shortcut for Firefox (it was "Firefox (2)" and I renamed it to "Firefox"). I'm not sure what y'all may need to troubleshoot this problem, but just ask away. I have upgraded CCleaner recently to the current (Latest as far as I'm aware) version. I simple in-place overwrite when I upgrade. I haven't uninstalled CCleaner once since I originally installed it on my system. That's a simple enough task, I can start there if someone thinks it will help.
  20. Winapp2.ini additions

    The entries are listed under the section "Google Chrome", there is no separate section "Brave Browser". The entries always clean up all installed Chromium-based browsers at once. You should also add the browser to CCleaner using one of the following methods: https://www.ccleaner.com/docs/ccleaner/advanced-usage/ccleaner-ini-files/how-to-clean-user-data-from-non-standard-mozilla-browsers CustomLocation1=CHROME|path_to_user_profile: https://forum.piriform.com/search/?q=CustomLocation1=CHROME Example: CustomLocation1=CHROME|C:\Users\<your user name>\AppData\Local\BraveSoftware\Brave-Browser\User Data\Default
  21. Tracker Removal?

    Correct, but by 'Un-ticking' the box for IE in Windows 'Programs' you reduce its PITA tendencies!
  22. Winapp2.ini additions

    How to get cookies and all clean up stuff visible for Brave browser? Brave lines exists in winapp2 file, but can't see anything about Brave inside CCleaner.

  25. OK, thanks for the heads-up. Separate user accounts is still probably the right way forward, though. FYI, v5.56.7144 did not clear Firefox history or cache this morning, so the problem (for me, anyway) persists. It does work fine when I run it manually. So it's as if Firefox is unavailable to CC when the machine boots, rather than CC is unable to clean the right areas. Anyway, I'll head off to configure the browser setting/

      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.
