  1. It wouldn't matter in this situation if you had the paid Pro version or free version.
  2. They're always chasing (one step behind) changes in web browsers, for years it's usually been Google Chrome that has the most posts about it not being cleaned. But nowadays that also includes Edge, Firefox, etc. Like nukecad suggested you can configure any browser to cleanse itself during exit.
  3. Perhaps try the newest version 5.56.7144: https://www.ccleaner.com/ccleaner/builds Note that the newest version is still getting some bug reports about it not cleaning cookies, etc., and the version you're using also has the same issue.
  4. Version 5.56.7144

    I've told you this before, here's the post: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/52857-version-540/?tab=comments#comment-300971
  5. Cannot install CCleaner 5.56 on Win2k3

    Make sure you have an SSE2 compatible processor which is required for newer versions. Also see this quick write up I did on it not too long ago: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/5739-solution-when-ccleaner-wont-install-or-download-windows/?do=findComment&comment=303883 Edit: And if that's not the issue scroll to the very top of that page I linked to for other possible solutions.
  6. I've seen those on eBay in the past many, many years ago and even told Piriform back in the day, and back then they stated they couldn't do anything about it. I even tried to report one of them to eBay as fraud with zero luck when I noticed someone had "re-skinned" CCleaner since they obviously don't lock down the program to prevent tampering. I guess it's just a lesson well learned, buy directly from the publisher when it comes to buying a software license key.
  7. Never again will I use CCleaner

    ...and that would be because a registry key is created detailing not to ask for a particular amount of time that is at least when it pertains to any 3rd party Google offers, I don't know about the Avast offers.
  8. Version 5.56.7144

    Since v5.40 this has been removed in regards to it having the possibility of damaging Windows 10: * Fonts cache cleaning removed. * Windows.old cleaning removed. New bug discovery it damages Google Chrome extensions using the Session cleaner, as seen here. -------- To find out if any additional cleaning abilities have been added the change logs are always posted in the announcement topic of each new version, they are available on the forums at: https://forum.piriform.com/forum/5-announcements/ To also help you determine if it's "worth updating" it's always wise to have a good look in the Bug Reports section of the forum. As of the past several versions it's getting bigger with more features and simultaneously getting buggier, which is the reason I finally downgraded to 5.40 like others have done - keeping in mind you need to disable Fonts Cache cleaning and disable Windows.old cleaning and never use them. It must be noted that if using an old version of CCleaner, and having Windows 10 as the OS it will likely eventually get blacklisted as being too old by Windows 10, and Windows won't allow you to use it anymore, which is precisely what happened not too long ago with v5.28 that I had intended to downgrade to. Some older versions of Windows could care less which version you're using.
  9. Never again will I use CCleaner

    That has been what people have reported for years with the Google installs slipping by, and now also with Avast. Although they were "supposed to have fixed that". It's one of the reasons I avoid installers (don't trust them from anyone) if possible, and go the portable route.
  10. CCleaner 5.56 Digital Signature Error

    ccsetup556.exe downloaded from CCleaner.com has a valid SHA-1 and SHA-256 digital certificate on Windows 10. What version of Windows are you using? I know when for instance on Windows XP it can't read the new digital certificates that are in software installers to help validate them.
  11. Winapp2.ini additions

    That's why I have exclusions in CCleaner as it pertains to SRWare Iron's extensions, extension settings, etc., i.e.; can't be broken inadvertently. Chrome/Chromium based browsers extensions easily break if cleaning the wrong thing, hence it's worthwhile having them excluded.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. McAfee + Ccleaner

    Maybe it's from the text that's shown during setup in the title bar which is: CCleaner v#.## Setup
  15. 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.
  16. Invalid chain

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

    Allot of people are having issues with CCleaner not deleting cookies, like seen in this topic.
  18. Conspiracy theories aside the real issue is CCleaner is very buggy nowadays!
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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/
  24. To my knowledge your post is the first bug report about it.
  25. 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/
