  1. ublock users

    Just a heads up to any ublock users out there that the dev gorhill has left the project suddenly and handed it over. Read here https://github.com/chrisaljoudi/uBlock/commit/6850fa0a262b8772a502c92750fe7a5bf74515f0 His reasons posted here http://www.wilderssecurity.com/threads/ublock-a-lean-and-fast-blocker.365273/page-33#post-2476240
  2. See here, ,member can run it with slim build in safe mode with networking https://forum.piriform.com/topic/53369-ccleaner-552-crashes-in-windows-10-with-no-error-even-in-safe-mode/?tab=comments#comment-303377
  3. Builds page should be fixed now.
  4. Well between last night and this morning when I got up, someone has stolen the builds page content. Just another day in Piriform life
  5. Does it work in safe mode now? @Eric L Hepperle
  6. CCleaner 5.52 Update fails

    No, I'm just a hazelnut Glad to hear you are up and running again.
  7. CCleaner 5.52 Update fails

    Have a look here https://forum.piriform.com/topic/53111-fail-to-install-ccleaner-pro-v5516939/?tab=comments#comment-302097
  8. Hard to know what causes the updating issues we seem to have now Eric. Piriform cannot seem to get it right
  9. Would you try uninstalling CCleaner, rebooting and then installing the slim build from here ? https://www.ccleaner.com/ccleaner/builds
  10. CCleaner update installation blocked

    Please try downloading the Slim version from the builds page instead. Does that work? https://www.ccleaner.com/ccleaner/builds
  11. Registry Cleaner

    Well if nothing shows up even from a Win iso (or Linux iso) then perhaps it needs sending back. Just checking pressing all the usual function keys at the time of trying to boot , F12, Escape etc) didn't work either?
  12. Registry Cleaner

    Is there no chance you can just boot from a Win 10 iso and install fresh ? It's what I would do.
  13. Hosts File Update

    Dan Pollocks list can also be selected in uBlock Origin
  14. Hosts File Update

    Peter Lowe's list, and the Malware Domains list, are included in uBlock Origin by the way.
  15. Registry Cleaner

    Best not to use the registry cleaning feature. Did you by any chance create a backup of the registry items to be cleaned when CCleaner offered you the chance to do so?
  16. Hosts File Update

    See here https://www.wilderssecurity.com/threads/mvps-hosts-file-last-updated-4-months-ago.412887/
  17. Apologies for repeating the link you already posted (it obviously must be a good link!) I don't use Chrome which means I cannot use my own machine for clues so forgive any obvious questions I ask. Do you have a Preferences file in your user directory for Chrome. If yes does it have the zoom info there which you could copy the path from to add as a CCleaner 'include'?
  18. Not an answer as such but more info perhaps. http://www.rawinfopages.com/tips/2014/11/reset-chrome-zoom-levels-for-websites/ Been asked about for a long time. https://superuser.com/questions/203669/make-google-chrome-forget-zoom-level-once-a-tab-is-closed
  19. The Firefox/Mozilla Thread

    Mozilla halts Firefox 65 distribution on Windows. https://www.ghacks.net/2019/02/01/mozilla-halts-firefox-65-distribution-on-windows/
  20. Microsoft Update issues.

    Quite a few folk are experiencing an error when they check for updates in the last day or so and it seems to be still ongoing and in different parts of the world. See here (and comments from people a bit further down the page) https://www.isitdownrightnow.com/update.microsoft.com.html
  21. Microsoft Update issues.

    Nothing to do with latest Windows version. Turns out it's a DNS issue. Comcast have fixed theirs but some such as BT in the UK the fix is a bit patchy. Changing your DNS to Google allows you to update straight away.
  22. Microsoft Update issues.

    More info now with more affected https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/microsoft/many-windows-10-users-unable-to-connect-to-windows-update-service/
  23. 100GB of "tracker files"

    That is a lot of size in your recycle bin. Have you looked in your bin to see what they are? What does it show if you select Run Cleaner, close CCleaner, open CCleaner and select Analyse again?
  24. Microsoft Update issues.

    It has nothing to do with Win Updates in general. It's actually to do with Windows Defender and how it responds with Win Updates. It is a new issue and more info is coming online about it. https://borncity.com/win/2019/01/30/windows-defender-with-update-issues-01-30-2019/
