  1. If I put a copy of the .ini configuration file from my fully configured version of CC  into a new installation folder of CC, will it remove registry entries and only use the .ini file.

    Or, would it be best to change the new installation of CC setting to use the .ini file only before dropping the .ini config file in the new CC folder.

    Thanks for your sleuthing. Can you DM me the clean and corrupted .ini files? I'll shoot them over to the devs on Monday to see if they can trace a root cause for a fix.

    I think the corrupted .ini file only pertained to me (I hope).  It went into the trash. 

    Still don't know why Easy Clean only shows up when CCleaner is "run as administrator".  Is that a me too only thing?

    I note no Easy Clean option in that screenshot.  Have you blocked CCleaner's calls home in your hosts.ini file?  Or have you done any manual tinkering to CCleaner's registry settings? In the latter case, does a complete uninstall/reinstall help?

     

    No blocking or tinkering here. Your suggestion lead me to what I believe the issue's were.  After uninstall/reinstall, no spinning cursor but still no Easy Clean.  I had to set Icon as "run as administrator".  Now all was good including Easy Clean until I dropped a copy of the .ini file into CCfolder.  Spinning cursor again.  I Started over then I manually set options and all is working again as expected. Sounds like a corrupted .ini file now.

    Should the install process have set icon as "run as administrator"?

    I sent a new icon to the desktop from the CCfolder and it was not set as  "run as administrator".


  4. Hi,  Windows 10 Release 1809.

    Screenshot ...cursor missing, I used windows logo + PrtScn

    No, it doesn't resemble the issue mentioned to me.

    Strangely, the portable version is now working the next day with one shutdown and startup.

    Dropped the 64bit executable in the CCfolder with no luck.

    Will try installing slim version then reboot and get back to you.

    I was going to do that myself before I decided on my Win10 laptop instead. Thing with a Linux distro is if you have an older 32-bit system that's still a no-go in my opinion. Although I'm still tempted by those small form factor PCs, may have to get one of those and install Linux Mint on it and hook it up to my TV.

    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.


  6. 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.


  7. 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,

    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!

    Great to see you are still around Jamin4u.

    All the best to you too :)

    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.
