  2. Firefox Cookies Not Really Deleted

    I don't face such issue often, but yes there is different trouble appear again and again that is mozilla firefox critical error message, I got frustrated and embarrassed while I was showing a project detail to my client, something which is really pathetic has happened with me but thank almighty who saves me and help me to obtain that project but that time I realize this shouldn't happen again to me, So the client suggest me to visit this link and learn from there. Actually, it helps me.

  4. Hi, Everyone I'm suffering panic attack right now, but I'll survive, I guess... I just accidentally deleted (SHIFT+DEL) a folder with all my family footage (~150GB) during a data organization on my external hard drive (4TB, but 3TB free). I'm currently waiting for the Deep Scan, but I was thinking if there is a way to simply "unmark" the folder as deleted. It would be amazing if the folder just came back from the ashes. I dont know if there is a way to just "undo" the deletion without having to copy the files. If someone could help me I'll be extremely thankfull

    Recuva does not put any file back where it originated from. If a recovery is done then the selected files will be copied to another location for the user to reinstate as required. Shortcuts are .lnk files and should be found, but can easily be recreated. I assume you have looked in the recycler?
  7. Video crashed

    Recuva won't fix any file problems, it copies whatever it finds in the clusters, be it good or bad data. The exif data is part of the file data and this similary won't be 'fixed' by Recuva.
  8. Large Volume of Junk found by CCleaner

    - Just look at what the "Custom Clean" option pulls up. It will tell you what application is associated with that 6 GB in junk files. I consider it most likely that those files are associated with a browser (Firefox, Google chrome, ........... ) - Please post a screenshot of the details of that "Custom Clean". then there is no need/less need to contact support.

    Thanks for all the input. I have checked each one out to no avail. Have contacted support. Hopefully will get this solved soon and will share.
  10. Looks like Microsoft is rolling out a fix now https://www.windowslatest.com/2019/08/18/microsoft-is-rolling-out-an-update-to-fix-windows-10-sfc-feature/
  11. Easy Clean uses it's own settings and will do it's own thing regardless of your other settings. Easy Clean does not respect what you have ticked or unticked, you must use Custom Clean to do that. Custom Clean does remove the cookies - (unless you tell it not to). It just doesn't call them 'tracking' cookies - see the link at the bottom of this post. The CCleaner setting for Adobe Reader can be found under the CCleaner 'Applications' tab. It's about halfway down and is 'Adobe Reader DC'. There is also a setting in Reader itself which turns on/off the saving of history / recent files. Open Adobe Reader and go to Edit>Preferences>Documents and you should see the option 'Documents in recently used list' - if that is set to 0 then no recent list will be saved.

    If you look at my later post you'll see that I had already apologised for reading it wrongly. The traditional built-in Windows clipboard only kept one entry, and indeed kept it in memory. Other clipboard apps can save multiple entries, and can save them across reboots (or even crashes) by writing them to temporary files. Windows 10 clipboard can now also save multiple entries, and is able to share clips between devices. You can also "pin" clips so that they are always available, to do that they have to be written to disc because otherwise they would not survive a reboot. https://pureinfotech.com/sync-clipboard-across-devices-windows-10/

    Thank you for your quick reply and corrections.
  14. I'm using CCleaner successfully with two exceptions. I definitely don't want to having wiped out the Firefox cache and the history of Adobe Acrobat Reader. This doesn't take place when starting the Custom Clean process, but in the Easy Clean section, despite I excluded the folder where the FF cache is located. In the Custom Clean process CCleaner doesn't wipe out tracking cookies, so I want to start both processes. Settings for the Acrobat Reader I didn't found. Any help is greatly appreciated. Regards Hans

    I Recuva tonight but was hoping all files would go back to where they originated from, esp. my desktop icons. In fact, after I ran the scans, they are not anywhere lol. Did I do something wrong with Recuva?

    - The Clipboard is located in the memory of the computer, NOT on your HD.
  17. Alas, I too am having this same issue and from reading this thread, it seems there is no solution even in the works as not one soul from Piriform has bothered to make an appearance to offer even platitudes. Initially, I thought maybe it was just my version of Windows as is ofttimes the case. I am running Windows 10 Enterprise version 10.0.18362 Build 18362, not a common release. Then I started looking for answers and solutions online and found this to be a long time issue with MANY across multiple forums. I am so very disappointed, in myself mostly for not reading up on the latest about the Piriform family of products before nose-diving into buying the whole package. I was an avid fan and promoter of all things Piriform for years, about 10 years or so ago when they were the best around, then I caught the linux bug and never looked back. It is due only to my new job as CTO that I even came back to Windohs. Live and learn. Wonder if I can get a refund....

    In my opinion the safe way to empty the Recycle Bin is by using the tools made by Microsoft which are built into Windows. Many 3rd party cleaning tools from what I've experienced over the years can cause Recycle Bin corruption from what I've seen - hence the reason I don't allow any 3rd party tool to clean it on my systems.
  19. Video crashed

    Have a video where it shows I'm at the beach then crashes into another video of Christmas can recuva fix this? Also the exif/date is overwritten can it be fixed too?

  21. CCleaner Browser

    I've setup CCleaner Browser, imported everything from Google Chrome, but none of my saved passwords copied over.
  22. i take a look in c:\windows\installer... i found also a lot of temorary empty folders with no function for w8.1 -> i think this behavior of windows is the same in w10 too and diskcleanup dont work correctly how it seems "msif761.tmp-" (122 of this kind of empty folders from year 2016) -> i can delete it safely but manually i mean it would be nice if ccleaner can take it to nirvana
  23. Winapp2.ini additions

    You're right. I just fixed it.
  24. not 600 mb -> 6 gb was found :-) there are different things -> for example "livekernelreports" 1 gb is not unnormally also the windows-temp folder is full of temporary install-files/folders...

    That's odd, how long is a clean taking? If you can post a screen shot similar to those above we might be able to spot something. You could also try running CC in debug mode to see what the log says - but with that many files it's probably going to be a big logfile so we'll leave that for later. Edit- Andavari's thought about a corrupted recycle bin is a distinct possibility, we've seen a couple of those recently.

    Where is it finding that amount of data to clean? Just assuming however if it's by chance the Recycle Bin it could be corrupt and CCleaner won't be able to clean it, have a look here for a solution if it is the Recycle Bin: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/42673-corrupted-recycle-bin-fix/
  27. Large Volume of Junk found by CCleaner

    When I run back to back CCleaner sessions the total remains at 6550 cleaned, regardless of the precleaned total. This thing has gone south. Will attempt to attempt their support again. Thanks for your efforts.

    Thank you very much for all the revised entries. The entry [LocalSystem *] has some typos: FileKey9+11+15 need a pattern. I guess |*.*|RECURSE. FileKey9+10+11 have a doubled backslash after %WinDir%. And please do not rearrange the FileKeys. Please use the alphabetical order we need for WinappDebug/Winapp2ool. Thank you!
  29. Winapp2.ini additions

    New Entry [InstallService *] DetectOS=10.0| LangSecRef=3025 Detect=HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows Default=False FileKey1=%WinDir%\System32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local\Microsoft\InstallService|*.*|RECURSE

      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.
