  1. CCleaner & Win 10 S Mode

    A batch file should work instead, or better yet look for an actual "replacement" on the Microsoft Store.
  2. OS in SSD safe to zero-fill?

    Since it's an old topic I'll close it then. Thanks for making the both of us look sane Nergal!
  3. Winapp2.ini additions

    That's why they need a proper Wiki, since some things on that help site are incomplete or outright wrong and they know about it because they've been told countless times.
  4. CCleaner & Win 10 S Mode

    Just don't try to follow any help links on that page Hazelnut, Microsoft and their BROKEN links seem like a trend and are very prevalent.
  5. CCleaner & Win 10 S Mode

    From everything I've seen on YouTube about it the only programs ("apps") that will work on it have to be from the Microsoft Store. Your friend can however upgrade at an additional cost I believe to Windows 10 Home if it's too limiting.
  6. A new Button to make CCL more efficient..

    You can "opt-out" on many advertisers main sites, but that also means you have to accept and keep their cookies which in turn means you cannot allow tools like CCleaner to delete those cookies - which to me sounds like a big effort and to be blunt a complete pain in the ass, and I'd wonder can they actually be trusted. It's easier in my opinion to use a HOSTS file like the MVPS.org HOSTS File, etc., which can also block some malware. Couple a blocker HOSTS file with using an adblocking add-on in each browser such as uBlock Origin, etc., to cover what the HOSTS file can't block.
  7. Winapp2.ini additions

    It's not in there by default, you have to manually create it. And you'll need to input it in order for CCleaner to detect and clean a "clone" of Chrome/Chromium if it doesn't already clean the browser - the same would go if for instance using a portable version of any browser. What CCleaner cleans will be under the "Google Chrome" heading in CCleaner.
  8. Make sure Chrome isn't running in the background as a process, it has to be configured to not do that if I'm remembering correctly. See here: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/40285-ccleaner-not-deleting-google-chrome-history-fix/
  9. Winapp2.ini additions

    Added: * FileKey2 - removes the backup copy of the installer which they've moved into a different folder with the newest version, so I've made it so it will recursively remove it. * FileKey3 - removes a new log [Samsung Magician *] LangSecRef=3021 Detect=HKLM\Software\Samsung Magician Default=False FileKey1=%CommonAppData%\Samsung\Backup|*.exe FileKey2=%CommonAppData%\Samsung\Samsung Magician|*.exe|RECURSE FileKey3=%CommonAppData%\Samsung\Samsung Magician\PB|*.txt FileKey4=%ProgramFiles%\Samsung Magician\Logs|*.* FileKey5=%ProgramFiles%\Samsung\Samsung Magician\Log*|*.* RegKey1=HKCU\Software\Local AppWizard-Generated Applications\SamsungMagician
  10. Tracker Removal?

    Some software still relies upon IE's engine to display things in the software and to download updates.
  11. Winapp2.ini additions

    Doesn't matter to me either way, I was just reporting that CCleaner cleaned it.
  12. You also can't trust many online reviews giving praise or whatnot since some are fake or paid, even on big retailer sites.
  13. You can obtain the newest version at (worth bookmarking): https://www.ccleaner.com/ccleaner/builds I don't know off hand just a guess that it may be that now old version of CCleaner you're using that's opening the download page in Firefox.
  14. Winapp2.ini additions

    CCleaner's already built-in Site Preferences already cleans that exact file, at least in Firefox ESR Portable v60.6.1esr.
  15. It wouldn't matter in this situation if you had the paid Pro version or free version.
