  1. Install failure

    Can you supply more info? In the meantime if it's the "Error opening file for writing" that's very common during install, see the solution in this topic: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/5739-solution-when-ccleaner-wont-install-or-download-windows/
  2. Forced chrome install during update

    Just be fortunate that it didn't instead install Avast Free Antivirus!!! You should be about to more thoroughly uninstall Chrome with Geek Uninstaller Free or Revo Uninstaller Free.
  3. First guess lang pack files from some software you use that's developed in China (antivirus, video encoder, etc.,). Or something from a Chinese brand PC you've bought perhaps. If you're worried about the integrity of your system security you could always malware scan your PC, or see item #10 in the forum rules and visit a forum or website that helps determine if your infected or clean - they're all free of course.
  4. Security Bug in WinRAR

    That ACE format hasn't been developed in ages so it's of no surprise. Too bad because ACE had real potential.
  5. Speccy identified my CPU wrong

    They probably just need to update Speccy. At least there's a way built into Windows to get the correct detection to verify what you purchased.
  6. The processor (CPU) has to have SSE2 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SSE2) for CCleaner to function. The final version that works with non-SSE2 compatible processors is CCleaner 5.26.5937 (Standard Installer) released 17 January 2017, it can be downloaded at: https://filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/72800/ --------------- "Error opening file for writing" during setup is very common nowadays, it can be remedied by viewing the information posted at: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/5739-solution-when-ccleaner-wont-install-or-download-windows/ If your CPU is SSE2 compatible and if everything you try doesn't allow you to install the newest version, instead try the Slim build and if that too fails try the Portable ZIP version, both are available at: https://www.ccleaner.com/ccleaner/builds
  7. Winapp2.ini additions

    When you updated the cleaner with "FileKey9=%LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.Windows.Cortana_*\LocalState\DeviceSearchCache|*.txt" I tried it, followed by the required reboot to see if Cortana/Search was all of a sudden broken again, and I can report that it did not break anything in regards to Cortana/Search. Edit: However I wonder who updates the winapp2.ini for BleachBit, because what it uses is old as hell and breaks things in Win10.
  8. Winapp2.ini additions

    Only if cleaned improperly. Referring to reoccurring folders like CryptnetUrlCache in most cleaners, etc.
  9. RAPR- DriverStore Explorer Released

    What is the appeal of using it? And does it have the potential of breaking something, or bricking the Windows installation?
  10. Updating

    If it's the same as another topic visit the link in post 2: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/53452-update-not-working/
  11. Update not working

    "Error opening file for writing" is very common during install, see the solution in this topic: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/5739-solution-when-ccleaner-wont-install-or-download-windows/

  13. Secret Windows bug/fix ?

    Maybe give up and get an iPad. Joking of course. As for images on websites getting downloaded instead of displaying the full size I had something like that happen over ten years ago, and from what I remember it was either some corruption in my Firefox profile (which was common long ago after too many version upgrades), or it was mis-configured, don't remember which thought.
  14. Winapp2.ini additions

    Too bad CCleaner (or some other tool) doesn't exist to completely simplify and hasten the ability to make new cleaning entries/routines for the lot of repeating sub-folder structures without having to make unique individual cleaners which seems to be a reoccurring theme for Win10.
  15. The .reg file I posted above I've tested and it works on Win10 Home, i.e.; import the .reg file (perhaps reboot although I don't know if that's necessary). Then launch CCleaner, and it no longer will have the pop-up dialog complaining about Edge. Edit: Those registry keys don't exist, which is what the .reg file I supplied will create.
  16. See here, I posted a .reg file a while back that in my testing on Win10 Home works: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/53177-how-to-disable-pre-launching-and-pre-loading-so-ccleaner-can-fully-clean-edge/?do=findComment&comment=302353
  17. Winapp2.ini additions

    Make up your minds or just leave it as it originally was, getting tired of editing my own winapp2.ini to be compliant.
  18. Secret Windows bug/fix ?

    For me it has only happened that one time. Perhaps it's the charge cable, since folks nowadays will use just about any cable to charge something sometimes with hardware damaging results. I remember buying a USB Type-C cable branded by Amazon and it had nothing but connection issues but it wasn't certified (just cheap junk) so it got a one way trip into the rubbish bin, however buying a certified cable solved the issues.
  19. CCleaner free 553 update failed

    See if anything in here helps, in particular the "Error opening file for writing" error which is very common during install: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/5739-solution-when-ccleaner-wont-install-or-download-windows/
  20. Malay Translation for CCleaner

    I'll give one of the admins a link to your topic.
  21. Curious, does Zemana detect it if you move CCleaner.exe elsewhere to another folder, such as C:\Temp. Only curious because in the past some anti-malware would only trigger an alert if a file was in a specific path, i.e.; generic detection.
  22. Winapp2.ini additions

    MS Weather, Windows Weather.
  23. Winapp2.ini additions

    See the big quote and the reasoning for the change: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/32310-winapp2ini-additions/?do=findComment&comment=303625
  24. Won't clean Chrome

    The difference is you use Google Chrome, I instead use a Chrome/Chromium clone SRWare Iron Portable, never have I had any issue cleaning it and it has all that spying stuff turned off versus Chrome.
  25. Won't clean Chrome

    I'm not having issues with the newest version, other than having to start Microsoft Edge and then close it so that it can be cleaned, I also have History disabled/unticked under Internet Explorer so it doesn't take forever trying to clean nothing in it! However I also use my own cleaners via winapp2.ini, and I've also grabbed some cleaners from the community winapp2.ini file to expand upon CCleaner's default cleaning abilities. The biggest point is I only use the portable version of web browsers - they exit fully, and don't have anything left running in the background.
