  1. Version 5.56.7144

    I've merged your new topic with this one with exact same title name. Please try not to duplicate topics because you'll end up having people answering questions in two locations. ------------- As for the delay when cleaning. I think some users noted that also having Cookies ticked/enabled under Internet Explorer could also cause a slow down - this was a few versions ago. Edit: I've personally noticed it mostly with having History ticked/enabled under Internet Explorer. Sometimes it will clean it very quickly, and sometimes it will take 10-15 seconds (maybe longer).
  2. Application not found

    I've never seen that Explorer.exe dialog error ever before, rather using the installed version or portable version of CCleaner. Maybe this won't fix anything, but perhaps worth a try: If you go into your version of CC Portable and open 'Options > Settings', then untick/disable both Recycle Bin options, followed by rebooting your system, and then after rebooting re-enable both Recycle Bin options if it will work as intended. Seems like either some location, permissions, UAC, or registration issue of the context menu items.

  4. Restoring DMA Mode in Windows

    A root cause of a slow/sluggish running Windows XP computer can be if it's stuck in PIO mode. It's wise to periodically check and make sure your disc drives and hard disks are not in the very slow PIO mode. Especially check your CD/DVD drive if after using a bad disc that Windows gives a cyclic redundancy check ("read-error") warning when trying to read! When Windows XP systems get stuck in PIO Mode they won't automatically self-repair and go back into the preferred and fast DMA Mode that newer versions of Windows will after a restart. Restoring DMA Mode in Windows XP: 1. Manually create a System Restore Point. 2. Open Device Manager 3. Scroll down to Primary IDE Controller / Secondary IDE Controller 4. Right-click and select Properties for the Primary IDE Controller (this one is for your hard disks), it should read as using a DMA Mode, if it isn't switch the transfer mode to DMA Mode using the drop-down box 5. Right-click and select Properties for the Secondary IDE Controller (this one is for your CD/DVD disc drives), it should read as using a DMA Mode, if it isn't switch the transfer mode to DMA Mode using the drop-down box 6. If you've changed the transfer mode you must now restart Windows. 7. After restarting you need to verify that both the Primary IDE Controller and Secondary IDE Controller are using a DMA Mode by looking at the transfer mode again in the Device Manager. 8. If the Primary IDE Controller and Secondary IDE Controller are back in a DMA Mode manually create a System Restore Point, then you've completed the repair. ---------------------------------------------- If either are still stuck in PIO mode you'll need a few other steps to get them back into DMA Mode: 1. Manually create a System Restore Point. 2. Open Device Manager 3. Scroll down to Primary IDE Controller / Secondary IDE Controller 4. Whichever one of them is stuck in PIO Mode right click it and select Uninstall. 5. Restart Windows. Upon starting up Windows will re-detect the device and should automatically place it back in DMA Mode. Note in some situations this may require more than one restart, and Windows will notify you if it must restart again. 6. After restarting you need to verify that both the Primary IDE Controller and Secondary IDE Controller are using a DMA Mode by looking at the transfer mode again in the Device Manager. 7. If the Primary IDE Controller and Secondary IDE Controller are back in a DMA Mode manually create a System Restore Point, then you've completed the repair. ---------------------------------------------- Edit: If anyone knows if these instructions differ in newer versions of Windows please feel free to post those in this topic! Edit 2: I know the screenshots will not open to full-size. Something in the forum software causes this and re-uploading doesn't fix the issue.
  5. SAS really doesn't require any external updater software trying to update it, the built in updater works perfectly fine be that in the freeware or paid version.

  7. Cannot install CCleaner 5.56 on Win2k3

    SSE2 is a processor feature. The patch would be XP Service Pack 3. But as it pertains to XP running on a tablet I haven't a clue if a tablet would have SSE2 capabilities or not. The failure to install could possibly be what Trium explained which is to make sure CCleaner processes aren't already running resident in the background which seems to be the common cause of failed installations in recent months. Other possible solutions to remedy failed installations can be viewed at: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/5739-solution-when-ccleaner-wont-install-or-download-windows/
  8. Computer made of pasta

    CC likes to eat allot, but may draw the line there, too many carbs!
  9. Just about any 3rd party defrag tools can cause that, and more-so if they're allowed to do a comprehensive/full defrag. On Windows 10 specifically when using a 3rd party defrag tool I only have them deal only with fragmented files that they list in their file list after an analyze, plus it means the defrag finished ages faster too, and I allow Windows Defrag to perform the optimization on it's own automatic schedule - that way it isn't re-doing what another defrag program has done.
  10. Glad it's solved. It's one of those settings that's easy to forget about, the same if enabling Wipe Free Space. I'm surprised they've never added an additional button for cleaning with something like: "Run Cleaner (Secure)", or "Run Secure Cleaner".
  11. If you have Secure Delete enabled that could be the cause. Even what you explain what it did previously at 10-15 minutes is a very long time. Are you only cleaning weekly or monthly for such long times?
  12. CCleaner & Win 10 S Mode

    A batch file should work instead, or better yet look for an actual "replacement" on the Microsoft Store.
  13. 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!
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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/

  21. Tracker Removal?

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

    Doesn't matter to me either way, I was just reporting that CCleaner cleaned it.
  23. You also can't trust many online reviews giving praise or whatnot since some are fake or paid, even on big retailer sites.
  24. 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.
  25. Winapp2.ini additions

    CCleaner's already built-in Site Preferences already cleans that exact file, at least in Firefox ESR Portable v60.6.1esr.
