    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.


  2. 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.


  3. 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.

    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


  6. 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".

    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.

  8.   the Pro version now cleans automatically after you close your browser. (If you choose the option it do that.)

     

     

     

     

    Now the free version also does this

     

    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.

  9. 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.


  10. 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.
