    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".

    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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

    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.

    Regarding ''When automatic monitoring and cleaning is selected, CCleaner will use the settings in the Cleaner section to clean your PC''


    I have been told that....


    ''This refers to the cleaning rules set out within the Main cleaner interface. This is valid for all monitoring (Free and Pro) as they both follow those rules to clean''

    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

  8. Note: When automatic monitoring and cleaning is selected, CCleaner will use the settings in the Cleaner section to clean your PC.


     I am not sure. Maybe they want to clarify what will be cleaned if you confirm the balloon notification.


    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".
