  1. Unable to move beyond V5.45.6611

    Hi, If you have a paid subscription, it would be best for you to contact Piriform directly rather than go through the community forum.
  2. More Tracking and Data Gathering?

    100% agree with that. The older things get the harder it is to keep them going.
  3. More Tracking and Data Gathering?

    Hi Andavari, I'm using Q4OS on two 32-bit systems. A 2005 desktop running the Trinity desktop and a 2008 laptop with the Plazma desktop. I couldn't be happier how it brought them back to life. Full support until 2022. If these boxes make it till then, I will be surprised. The 32bit installation CD has the Trinity and Plazma Desktop along with others like Cinnamon (Mint), Xfce,... I'm using the current Firefox Quantum. I hope the support last.
  4. Windows 10 Pro setup

    Just bought a refurbished desktop so I can run applications that are for Windows and not for Linux. I have searched and found many videos on how to setup and tweak Windows 10. If anyone has any links in mind, please post them so I can get the job done right. Thanks, Jamin4u
  5. Windows 10 Pro setup

    No threats found. Thank you! Seems to be a clean and fast system for what I need it for. I'm going to spend some time on the forum hazelnut suggested. Peace...
  6. Windows 10 Pro setup

    My system was activated with a digital license. I understand what you both are telling me now. Thanks
  7. Windows 10 Pro setup

    Great info, my license is Windows 10 Pro for Refurbished PCS. I'll contact the company I bought it from to see if I can install myself with their license. I do have a product key so it would be reasonable to think that I could.
  8. Windows 10 Pro setup

    Downloading MS updates now and I like Windows 10 so far. I'll have to stop by and pick up a copy of CCleaner.
  9. Windows 10 Pro setup

    No disc for clean install. I haven't powered it up yet but I'll get back on it after my three hour tour. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yfSLuEj99d0 Thanks for the link and sharing your wealth of knowledge.
  10. Windows 10 Pro setup

    Thx hazelnut, the system I bought has pro installed. I appreciate the good info on installation as I can use most of it for setup. Can I delete the Microsoft account, if it has one? I read that privacy was an issue with 10. Is that all I need to do to stop the snooping? I'm sure there will be more questions as I get started. I don't even know what a Cortana is.

    Hi login123, good to see you too. Its nice to have a place to go where everybody knows your login name. Cheers!
  12. Malware in Ccleaner 5.50

    Hi, you could upload the installer .exe file and get 67 different secuity products results. https://www.virustotal.com/#/home/upload
  13. More Tracking and Data Gathering?

    Yeah, I'm still hanging around. I do miss trying to help others on the forum. What a great group of people here. Nothing but the best, for all of us.
  14. More Tracking and Data Gathering?

    I switched to Linux on my old xp and vista boxes because of browsers no longer being supported. Since CCleaner is not a Linux application, I'm using an alternative. It looks like it may be a blessing, considering what I continue to read on this forum. Thanks for all the good years! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
  15. CC Cleaner

    Check your security software. It may be a false positive blocking CCleaner.
  16. Re-enable Firefox cleaning?

    CC 5.36.6278 is cleaning internet history for Firefox if the browser is closed. It's just not showing it in the list of files deleted.
  17. New CCleaner build 4.18.4844

    Hi hazel, Using the same wording to describe the free version implies that cleaning is automatic in the free version. Maybe it's just me that's seeing it this way. Thank you
  18. New CCleaner build 4.18.4844

    I think your right that their intention is to confirm what settings will be used when clean is selected. The way it reads now implies that both monitoring and cleaning are automatic. Maybe it should just be stated that "When clean is selected from balloon notification, CCleaner will use the settings in the Cleaner section to clean your PC".
  19. New CCleaner build 4.18.4844

    Everything is still grayed out after you enable system monitoring in the free version. No values or settings can be changed. I believe the following apply's to the Professional version only and should be removed from the Docs for the free version.
  20. CCleaner vs CCleaner Pro?

    The only thing I see that the free version does is notify you that you can save .50 GB. Everything is still grayed out after you enable system monitoring. No values or settings can be changed.
  21. How about a little Q/C

    They released an updated version with a fix for the monitoring feature. Did you update your version? http://forum.piriform.com/index.php?showtopic=41860
  22. Where is the new version?

  23. New CCleaner build 4.18.4844

    v4.18.4844 seems like a sales and marketing approach for the Professional version of CCleaner. Just to be notified that you can save .5 GB doesn't appeal to me. Everything is still grayed out after you enable system monitoring. No values or settings can be changed. This did prompt me to look at the Professional version and it's features. Many users would benefit from the notifications, automatic cleaning and updating. There's a free trial of the Professional version for those who are interested.
  24. Welcome to the forum bdlacy, I don't know what you mean by "automatic cleaning", but if you just need to add SMS messages to the analyse try this... Settings > Customize Analyses > tap on SMS and you should see a check mark appear indicating that it will be included in analyze. After you analyze, make sure the box next to SMS in the results window is checked so that it will be included in cleaning. You can also customize what is to be deleted in the received and sent results. Tap the marker on the right, then tap on your desired setting. Edit: If you're referring to the "Quick Clean" widget as "automatic cleaning", SMS messages is not an option on my phone.
  25. Cookie Cleaning?

    If possible, will CCleaner for Android include cookie cleaning? Would be nice to see the cookies to keep option as in the Windows version. As always, thanks for your hard work and the new CCleaner Android App.
