  1. unable to download and save files.

    That's all assuming the .REG backup file would actually fix the problem, although it's worth a try. If you have a relatively recent Restore Point that will allow Windows to fully restore the registry to a point before using CCleaner's registry cleaner.
  2. unable to download and save files.

    That Plain Edit program is deemed as being clean by both Jotti and VirusTotal (of course you can re-scan them yourself): Jotti Scan Results: https://virusscan.jotti.org/en-US/filescanjob/c6uwpwa711 VirusTotal Scan Results: https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/1cb10342c6a55cd77fe13db2e4308b8346cf645967f23479e419c9e848f0b5c6/analysis/1553711802/
  3. Anyone else having problems updating?

    Can I make a suggestion so that you can help yourself receive better help. Try to limit posting for help in just one topic. With the multiple posts you've made desperately seeking help in different topics it would be difficult for Piriform to keep up with your help requests. Just a suggestion, and I hope they help you!
  4. Software Updater spam pop-ups

    No need to get smart. And btw this is not your thread, so try to stay on topic in it and not hijack it.
  5. Blast from the past

    Welcome back 1984.
  6. Problem with CmiCnfgp.cpl

    Right-click upon it and select Exclude if you wish to continue using the registry cleaner. You are using Win10 which is always changing with updates, etc., so registry cleaning can cause issues. Here's Microsoft's stance on registry cleaning: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2563254/microsoft-support-policy-for-the-use-of-registry-cleaning-utilities
  7. Software Updater spam pop-ups

    See here for an official reply, they're aware of the issue: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/53569-software-updater-in-free-version/?do=findComment&comment=304737
  8. ccleaner wont clean session

    Edge loads the link without issue on my laptop using Windows 10 v1803.
  9. ccleaner wont clean session

    To reiterate what Nergal already stated in the above quote again. If you want help provide more info, nobody can guess what you're asking otherwise.
  10. Microsoft Edge

    See here: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/53177-how-to-disable-pre-launching-and-pre-loading-so-ccleaner-can-fully-clean-edge/?do=findComment&comment=302353
  11. ccleaner wont clean session

    Is the issue perhaps where CCleaner shows a popup/notification instructing to modifying the system to allow it to properly clean Edge in Windows 10 Home v1809 (October 2018 Update)? If it is, and if you visited that Piriform/CCleaner webpage telling you to edit the registry well the information is incorrect because that registry data does not exist. Instead that registry data has to be created via instructions such as this: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/53177-how-to-disable-pre-launching-and-pre-loading-so-ccleaner-can-fully-clean-edge/?do=findComment&comment=302353
  12. ccleaner.ini settings not being honored

    Don't know why their support never answered you. On the forums it's just volunteer's and nobody working for them, although occasionally they will officially answer stuff on the forums.
  13. ccleaner.ini settings not being honored

    All the same not good. I did leave a link to this topic for the admins, I will edit it to state a paying customer has an issue with the software.
  14. All of those winapp2.ini community entries (which are not supported by Piriform) would have to be thoroughly tested first because the install base is absolutely huge in the millions, and logically they can't potentially break millions of PCs. Adding in the whole winapp2.ini would slow CCleaner down to a crawl because the file has to be trimmed to optimize it on a per system basis.
  15. ccleaner.ini settings not being honored

    Make the .ini file read-only, it should work and it's what I had to do on my mother's laptop to stop an undesired behavior of it changing settings. You're right about it changing the settings and not honoring what you prefer. It was annoying me with it changing settings so I just gave up and downgraded to 5.40.6411 which is available at: https://filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/81935/
  16. They always have had a monthly update going way back which is obvious it's actively developed and nowhere near "end of life". And according to them they're a small team, so more frequent updates may be asking too much especially if you look at the state CCleaner has been in for many versions now.
  17. Where are the advanced features

    I'm using an old version 5.40, and the only Advanced Mode in there is in the Scheduled Tasks. I never really bothered with that area of CCleaner, so I don't know if more Advanced Modes existed in there or not in different versions. If it existed and you need the functionality old versions of CCleaner Free can be downloaded at: https://filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/history/
  18. disable new program updater feature

    See here for an official reply: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/53569-software-updater-in-free-version/?do=findComment&comment=304737
  19. Doesn't work because those registry keys do not exist, more than one person has posted about it not working. I'm surprised they haven't fixed those instructions yet. See if this here works instead (allows you to make a working .REG file): https://forum.piriform.com/topic/53177-how-to-disable-pre-launching-and-pre-loading-so-ccleaner-can-fully-clean-edge/?do=findComment&comment=302353
  20. 5.55.7108

    Always look through the CCleaner area of the forums and especially the Bug Reports section of the forum to get a good look at what's happening. Here's some - not all are bugs though, some is stuff that annoys people: * https://forum.piriform.com/topic/53534-ccleaner-554-not-detecting-or-deleting-cookies/ * https://forum.piriform.com/topic/53546-last-ccleaner-v5547088-window-not-resizing/ * https://forum.piriform.com/topic/53569-software-updater-in-free-version/
  21. CCleaner stealth installation?

    The whole topic was about CCleaner getting installed via the Speccy installer, it has nothing to do with Avast which is off topic in here. In any event, topic closed!
  22. Winapp2.ini additions

    Just a quick revisit and update after using that Windows 10 Cortana/Search cleaner for much longer. I've noticed that it doesn't matter rather there's an exclusion, or if there's no exclusion at all because it randomly breaks Cortana/Search functionality regardless. I'm however not going to bother worrying about it since I prefer to periodically clean it and I have that batch file I previously mentioned to repair it after a reboot.
  23. Where are the advanced features

    Scheduled Tasks (tab) in there is the only one that has an Advanced Mode.
  24. If everything is stored in the one main folder you mention "Corel Auto-Preserve", you can very easily have CCleaner remove the contents of what's inside including all sub-folders by inputting an 'Include' for 'Custom Files and Folders'. See here to learn how: https://www.ccleaner.com/docs/ccleaner/using-ccleaner/including-files-and-folders-for-cleaning/
  25. There's the community winapp2.ini which can extend it's cleaning. End of life, I doubt it!
