  1. Never again will I use CCleaner

    Perhaps switch to using the portable version which has no ability to install Avast or any 3rd party Google software.
  2. RIP Edge browser?

    I would imagine the rendering engine would be left intact, likely parts of the OS require it like in previous Windows versions.
  3. McAfee + Ccleaner

    Maybe it's from the text that's shown during setup in the title bar which is: CCleaner v#.## Setup
  4. Does that program's .EXE file have the correct version info in it when right clicking it and selecting properties? This is all assuming that's where CCleaner is getting the version info from but I don't know off hand. I only wondered because I noticed I use a freeware app where it appears the publisher forgot to change the version info in one area of the .EXE file when right clicking it, whereas in the app itself it displays the correct info in the title.
  5. Invalid chain

    Look at the dates on the posts, you're replying in a 7 years old topic!
  6. Not cleaning all Edge cookies

    Allot of people are having issues with CCleaner not deleting cookies, like seen in this topic.
  7. Conspiracy theories aside the real issue is CCleaner is very buggy nowadays!
  8. File shredder to CCleaner

    It's been a requested feature for many years now, but still hasn't been implemented. And anyone wanting it will have to use another tool to accomplish it. Personally I use WipeFile to accomplish it, it's freeware and small.
  9. AppCompatCache

    Who knows for sure which exact version of Windows its intended for. On my WinXP system it's a value listed as AppCompatCache housed inside three areas, all the same exact size too when exported: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Session Manager\AppCompatibility HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet002\Control\Session Manager\AppCompatibility HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\AppCompatibility I don't know if it's safe to clean though.
  10. AppCompatCache

    Look in the community winapp2.ini file (look for the URL link at the bottom of the first post on the very first page). Then in winapp2.ini either loaded in your web browser or the file you've downloaded look for the cleaner in it named exactly this (use search function): [Session Manager *] It doesn't clear it out completely only selected parts are cleaned, and also some physical files on the hard disk.
  11. False advertising

    I think if I'm remember correctly it's supposed to honor the settings the user has selected. Otherwise it would be considered dangerous cleaning things a user didn't have selected.
  12. See if the instructions in this topic (near the top of it) help: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/5739-solution-when-ccleaner-wont-install-or-download-windows/
  13. To my knowledge your post is the first bug report about it.
  14. Cannot Find Edge Registry Tweaks For CCleaner 5.55

    If this is what you're referring to there's instructions for creating your own .REG file in post 2 of this topic: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/53177-how-to-disable-pre-launching-and-pre-loading-so-ccleaner-can-fully-clean-edge/
  15. Speed up Defraggler

    I've seen at least two YouTube videos that explain how long it would take to wear out a modern SSD for a home end-user (not talking about professional videographers, etc., that can hit them hard with 4K and 8K video production). In plain talk an end-user would have to be trying on purpose to wear one out in order to hit the DWPD/TBW limit.
  16. Speed up Defraggler

    With an SSD that can be said about any traditional defrag tool, they've become redundant as it pertains to SSD's. I wonder if doing a traditional defrag on an SSD when told in manufacturer documentation not to do it could void the warranty.
  17. "advanced" under windows

    A useful one is however "Custom Files and Folders", that gets ticked/enabled if you have it clean files or folders you've configured in: Options > Include
  18. ccleaner on task manager-windows 10

    Moved to the Bug Reporting forum area. You're the third person to report it in about a one month period. I've left the admin's a link to this topic of yours so they'll know about this report too.
  19. It's now called Smart Cleaning, they renamed it some time ago.
  20. Winapp2.ini additions

    Didn't know that, I only used it to create a USB Flash Drive installer. I've deleted my post after reading your link to protect anyone who might blindly use it without knowing.
  21. It's just one year, look around the forums for complaints people have posted who thought it was a one-time fee, this one in particular: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/52694-ccleaner-pro-lifetime-licence-why-has-it-expired/
  22. Speed up Defraggler

    Samsung Magician no longer optimizes their SSDs, they've removed that functionality since it's now built into Windows itself. Same goes for Crucial/Micron Storage Executive it doesn't optimize either, although I don't know if it ever had that feature before. Edit: Unless you mean something like the jargon all those SSD manufacturers state like RAPID Mode (Samsung), Momentum Cache (Crucial/Micron). I have SSDs from both Samsung and Crucial and their method of DRAM caching from my experience doesn't increase speed that I've been able to notice when compared to Windows own caching mechanism. Sure if you run CrystalDiskMark it will seem as if a slower SATA III SSD is operating at blazing fast NVME SSD speeds but I doubt it. If looking about the web there's many forum posts that claim the same. Although the benefit may just come down to their DRAM caching service(s) allowing the SSD to last longer if what they state is true in the documentation and user guides.
  23. There's a number of programs that utilize the right-click, but not many mention it being a feature.
  24. Cookies

    There's many of us including myself that are on that version - for obvious reasons!
  25. Speed up Defraggler

    Other disk defrag tools one in particular has an SSD optimize mode, doesn't move much but gets rid of most fragments. Then there's another that's now no longer developed that could do it for SSD's and Flash Drives. With an SSD I don't bother using any third party defrag tools, however with HDD's I do use a third party defrag tool because Windows doesn't do very good on HDD's in my opinion. Edit: Just a thought; Maybe it's taking so long because you shouldn't be doing it!
