  1. See here for a previous discussion about it with solutions: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/53177-how-to-disable-pre-launching-and-pre-loading-so-ccleaner-can-fully-clean-edge/
  2. If the old hard disk is still plugged in perhaps change the boot order in the BIOS so that the new cloned disk has priority. And if that fails unplug the old hard disk.
  3. Wipe clipboard history (Windows 10 1809)

    That and you'd have to have a Microsoft account for it to be partially cloud-based, if you use a local account it should remain local.
  4. Avast CEO paid peanuts

    You'd never get anything done, the website would state Under Construction, and then underneath it an image of a beach ball with the text On Vacation.
  5. Wipe clipboard history (Windows 10 1809)

    Isn't it stored online now in the cloud. If it is then CCleaner and no other cleaning tool can touch it. Seems it is cloud-based to some extent, see here: https://www.howtogeek.com/351978/using-windows-10s-new-clipboard-history-and-cloud-sync/
  6. Disable/untick anything in CCleaner that reads as MS Office or Office, and see if that helps. Also if you're using any CC Enhancer program (unofficial unsupported by Piriform CCleaner), or the community Winapp2.ini file (unsupported by Piriform CCleaner) try removing them to see if that helps.
  7. It can happen for mysterious reasons, and then out of nowhere can correct itself. In the meantime something to try, although I don't know if it will work effectively: 1. Open each browser on your system, and use their own built-in cleaning tools to delete the cookies. 2. Check in CCleaner to see if they've been deleted. In CCleaner make sure Adobe Flash Player cleaning is enabled, since there are Flash based cookies also. Warning: If you play Flash based games cleaning Adobe Flash Player will delete your game progress/saves.
  8. Slows down waiting for disk drives..

    If you have Recycle Bin cleaning enabled in CCleaner try disable it to see if that helps, since each Local Disk in Windows will have a Recycle Bin that it will attempt to clean. If you have configured Custom Files and Folders to clean on other partitions that will cause it to access those disks too. To have it exclude certain drives, files, folders, registry data that setting can be found in Options->Exclude.

  10. [sug] avoiding temporary moves

    I can't imagine too much innovation will be coming to defrag software anytime soon, especially with SSD's up to the 1TB size being more affordable nowadays.
  11. [sug] avoiding temporary moves

    Memory would be infinitely faster however the slow way of doing it is infinitely safer in the event of power failure/outage, BSOD, or the defrag software crashing/freezing or what not, and in the process there could be file loss or file corruption. It sounds unsafe with the potential for disaster, and also sounds outside of the specifications for the Microsoft Defrag API which to my knowledge all defrag tools utilize on Windows, and if it were possible (probably could be but with huge caveats) I'd imagine Microsoft would've already implemented it.

  13. When it comes to security software I always go the clean install route by uninstalling the old version followed by a reboot, and then install the new version. Some security software speaking mostly about freeware antivirus and freeware anti-malware may not suggest anything and will by itself with no user interaction install a new version over itself, and in the process corrupts a portion or feature of itself that may not be immediately obvious but in some cases it's glaringly obvious - missing right-click context menu scanning (Malwarebytes), missing GUI elements (Panda Dome "Panda Free Antivirus").
  14. You might need to try what's detailed in this topic: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/53177-how-to-disable-pre-launching-and-pre-loading-so-ccleaner-can-fully-clean-edge/
  15. Unbelievable

    All those connections are because it phones home. It's analytics, like so much other software has rather it's "freeware" or paid for. You can of course block all connection attempts.
