  1. ublock users

    Might be an idea for Chrome and FF users to have a read of this thread about the proposed changes browsers are making regarding web requests by third party software. https://github.com/uBlockOrigin/uBlock-issues/issues/338 It prompted Gorhill (uBlock Origin dev) to say this yesterday
  2. I can't access my (Free) Ccleaner

  7. CCleaner - Professional

    https://www.ccleaner.com/docs/ccleaner/using-ccleaner/wiping-free-disk-space Entire Drive will erase all of the files on the drive. WARNING, this means the whole of the partition will be erased. The drive will still be formatted, but all data will be erased. For safety reasons, this feature is disabled for the boot drive.
  8. CCleaner lag super-bug

    CCleaner calls home, and if you are in a company and have 'rules' it may check things before allowing CCleaner to go ahead.
  9. robert did you try stopping Edge running in the background all the time? See option 2 here for screenshots. https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/7225-turn-off-background-apps-windows-10-a.html I have everything in the list turned off apart from Windows Security.
  10. If you are using Win 10 try typing Control Panel into search. Open it and go to Programs and Features and see if it is listed there. Because it is such an old version it might well be listed there. Have you looked in Program Files in your C drive to see if it is listed there? If it is open the CCleaner program file and look for uninst.exe (the uninstaller)
  11. I can only tell you that I don't have these issues on Win 10 using CC 5.51 The only thing different I do perhaps is in Windows Settings.. ..Privacy....Background Apps, I have Microsoft Edge unticked. Also in Edge..Settings..Advanced ..I have Cortana unticked
  12. All I can help you with is this page. https://www.ccleaner.com/about/offices

  17. Season's Greetings

    Just in case anyone wants to change their avatar.. click on your present avatar at the top right hand side of the top of the page. When it opens your profile (it's a bit slow to open sometimes) look at where your avatar is on the left hand side. There is a little symbol on it which says 'profile picture' when you hover over it. Click on it.
  18. Opinions on CCleaner.

    It is a bit unrealistic to post in a discussion area about CCleaner asking what other better software you can use. This is an area for discussion on CCleaner only. I will close this thread now.
  19. Season's Greetings

    Be honest Nergal you cannot figure out how to change your avatar

  21. What is your operating system? Have you already been using CCleaner and this is an 'over the top' install? Where did you get the download from?
  22. Season's Greetings

    Merry Xmas to all forum members
  23. How to reply to forum

    It's a bit pointless you sticking around on a forum you think so little of You also don't like the people here no matter what they try to do to advise you. So this thread is now closed and your ability to post is restricted. Oh and by the way... Merry Xmas
  24. This thread is almost 3 years old, no point in adding to it now
