    Ccleaner is not an anti-virus and should not be used as one, it's a junk cleaner. While it's not live protection, pro comes with a more powerful smart cleaning which can monitor your browsers and offer to clean browser junk on browser exit.
  2. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!READ THIS FIRST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THIS THREAD IS FOR THE PURPOSE OF COLLECTING IN ONE PLACE THE MOTHERBOARDS THAT REPORT TEMPERATURES TO SPECCY INCORRECTLY ****************************************************TO WHOM DOES THIS APPLY*********************************************************** FOR THE MOST PART, THE SYMPTOMS OF THIS ARE SPECCY REPORTING INSANELY HIGH NUMBERS (OFTEN FOR CPU BUT IN A FEW CASES IT HAS BEEN NOTED ON OTHER COMPONENTS) *******************************************INFORMATIONAL STUFF************************************************ Speccy (a Software-Layer gets its information from the Windows Management Instrumentation service (a Hardware-to-Software-OS-Layer based Translator), which in turn gets it's information from the Hardware-Layer (your devices). It may be, that somewhere along the chain (HWlayer-Translator-SWlayer) the language gets confused (think of a game of what American's call "Telephone"). The first step you should take is to make sure your BIOS is up to date. How to do this varies by machine or motherboard manufacturer. So visit your OEM (such as Dell, HP, Toshiba Etc) or, if this is a self-made machine, Motherboard Manufacturer and learn how to achieve this step. Continue reading if/when you have completed step one and the readings are still incorrect Because each HWlayer is different, Piriform, the Developers of Speccy, must have specific information from your Speccy: Manufacturer Model Version Chipset Vendor Chipset Model Chipset Revision !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!WARNING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DO NOT PROVIDE MORE INFORMATION THAN THAT UNLESS ASKED BY DEVELOPERS DO NOT EXPECT DEVELOPERS TO REPLY. THEY MAKE ALL EFFORTS TO MONITOR ALL THREADS BUT WILL ONLY INTERACT IF THEY REQUIRE MORE INFORMATION OR TO INFORM A SPECIFIC MEMBER THAT THEIR BUG SHOULD BE SQUASHED (note: this rarely happens don't expect it to happen). DO NOT BUMP OR POST MULTIPLE TIMES FOR THE SAME UNIT. IF YOU HAPPEN TO NOTE THAT A FEW POSTERS UP (or, dare say, you read every entry in what promises to be a long thread) MENTIONED THE EXACT INFOMATION YOU ARE GOING TO REPORT, THIS GOES AS WELL. FAILURE TO COMPLY WILL RESULT IN PART OR ALL OF YOUR POST BEING EXCISED.
  3. Winapp2.ini additions

    Run export (ccleaner.exe /export) rename winapp.ini to winapp1.ini. delete entries you don't want from the ini, profit.

    A license for pro gives you 1 year of auto updates and priority support. When that year is up you either relicense or you lose those two pro features (other pro features such as user selection still work)

  6. If you judiciously do it (follow the advice in my signature below) it's still ok. But pay strict attention to my advice to only remove what you know is safe to remove.
  7. Are you cleaning the registry or just the cleaner tool?
  8. Won't clean Chrome

    I'm using the latest build, some of my fellow moderators are using older versions though.
  9. Do you have norton 360 for your antivirus?
  10. Won't clean Chrome

    Can I assume you mean ccleaner 5.40
  11. Won't clean Chrome

    Read here to see if this solves the problem, if not come back and we can troubleshoot the problem more.
  12. Thanks for playing fair pop up

    Thank you for noticing it was tied to the avast cookie. I've, again, pushed your thread to the development team.
  13. Thanks for playing fair pop up

    This is just a popup that will show for all users. According to the Piriform team, it should only appear once. Moderators are in talks with the development team on how best to inform users that they might see this pop-up. Essentially, it's there to generically remind users that ccleaner is free for home use only.
  14. Google chrome

    See if anything here helps
  15. iTunes program with important voice memos

    You posted this in ccleaner bugs but it seems to be a question about Recuva. Am I correct in this? If so i'll move it to the proper board (recuva discussion).
  16. Thanks for your suggestion, the developers look at threads and often will add suggested features. They however, may remain silent, which is not a sign of their interest in the idea.
  17. Internet Explorer skipped

    Do you have other programs running (such as outtlook). Many applications (and windows itself) use Ie and edge to render the program.
  18. Smart Cleaning Not Available

    Are you running the portable version (portable blocks smart cleaning settings)
  19. CCleaner 5.52.6967 Smart Cleaning bug

    Turn off background running of edge, this should solve the problem
  20. You're going to need to remove winapp2.ini and test if it still removes it. If it does still delete them we can help here, otherwise you'll need to bring it up in the devoted winapp2 thread. Is there not a saved forms checkmark under chrome? (Can't check myself as i'm between computers at the moment)
  21. A work around for pro should still work on free. What was the work around?
  22. While I understand that this creates a frustrating situation for many of you, but please keep the discussion free of swear words, I have edited the above post accordingly. This is this thread's one warning. Inappropriate language is not allowed on this site.
  23. Cleaning Chrome

    Turn off browser monitoring in smart cleaning options
  24. New Norton 360

    Thanks for your report. This is a known issue and the developers are working with norton to resolve this. See here for more
  25. Winapp2.ini additions
