  1. Even their defrag tool Defraggler can detect the drive incorrectly as seen here. It's something for them to fix.
  2. How to Keep Youtube Language Settings

    I thought the lang settings you chose would be set in a cookie, I mean where else would it be saved. If it is a cookie you'd need to use YouTube to get that cookie saved onto your computer, and then configure Cookies to Keep to not delete that cookie. Edit: Unless it's something you've configured in your web browsers. If I'm wrong someone else that knows may post a reply.
  3. 5.51.6939 Not creating .reg file

    Look in the Documents folder on your computer, that's supposed to be the default location.
  4. Winapp2.ini additions

    I'm looking right at the already built into CCleaner entry on my 6 month old Windows 10 Home laptop, screenshot:
  5. Online scanners may be using the Linux (or is it Unix) versions of the virus scanners (at least that's what Jotti's Malware Scan does) and not have the same detection the Windows versions have. The best thing to do is report it to the antivirus software vendor by submitting the file as a possible false positive, if it's a false positive it won't take them long at all to remove it from being detected.
  6. I did supply this old solution topic link from 2014 in my post, but as said it's old and Chrome is much newer now, and I know for some people they've previously stated it doesn't work: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/40285-ccleaner-not-deleting-google-chrome-history-fix/ One workaround is to perhaps try and then use a Chrome/Chromium Clone like SRWare Iron, Vivaldi, etc., that may not necessarily be configured to run all the time -- especially if choosing the portable versions if available.

    By default CCleaner doesn't clean or target the Downloads folder that's created by Windows. To test it you could copy a file into it and then run CCleaner to see if the file survives the cleaning. However I know Windows own built-in Disk Cleanup has a check/tick box for the Downloads folder, which would delete the contents - well I at least noticed that on a computer running Windows 10 October 2018 Update.
  8. CCleaner still calls home

    Someone mentioned it awhile back in another topic to block its .exe files in Windows Firewall, i.e.; not allowing them Internet access.
  9. How to Keep Youtube Language Settings

    Configure Cookies to Keep in CCleaner and see if that remedies the issue, see here: https://www.ccleaner.com/docs/ccleaner/ccleaner-settings/choosing-which-cookies-to-keep
  10. Winapp2.ini additions

    CCleaner already has a "Windows Media Player" entry minus the asterisk however. So how to distinguish what that entry is really for then?
  11. See if this helps: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/40285-ccleaner-not-deleting-google-chrome-history-fix/ ----------------- @ TwistedMetal: If you have Windows 10 v1809 ("October 2018 Update") installed. 1. To allow CCleaner to properly clean Edge without an error dialog displayed by CCleaner these keys must be present in the registry to prevent Edge from pre-loading: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 ; Microsoft Edge browser disable pre-loading after Windows 10 (October 2018 Update). ; This allows CCleaner to properly clean Microsoft Edge after Windows 10 (October 2018 Update). [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\MicrosoftEdge] [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\MicrosoftEdge\Main] "AllowPrelaunch"=dword:00000000 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\MicrosoftEdge\TabPreloader] "AllowTabPreloading"=dword:00000000 2. Open Microsoft Edge, and then close it - required to make sure it has no running processes. Then run CCleaner, and it will be able to properly clean it since no Edge processes will be running. That's how I do it anyways, and it works every time.
  12. Well they could do what some other uninstall tools do which is have the ability to hide certain things which are unlikely to ever get uninstalled, or also likely to damage a system.
  13. Need to be vigilante though and report all such detections, because remember last year when it was actually infected and back then only one AV/Vendor was detecting it.
  14. More Tracking and Data Gathering?

    Seems to be a very popular thing for allot of software (including hardware) to do that and it isn't nothing new. Perhaps the GDPR has shined a very powerful light upon it. The problem with it speaking in general about any software or hardware that has tracking being "non-identifiable" the information could likely become identifiable once a known behavior is logged (which is what I think upsets all of us). Such as example: Device-1 is logged as being used the most at Point-A everyday/weekly/monthly which could deduce based upon an educated guess that the person lives at Point-A -- hard to state it's still "non-identifiable" then which is often briefly covered in the software/hardware privacy policy or other agreements we click upon Yes to "comply" with since we could become identifiable.
  15. More Tracking and Data Gathering?

    With 32-bit you never know how long support will "last", they can "promise" something and then out of nowhere cut the cord.
