  1. Yesterday I did what winapp2 eluded to a few posts up and set to false: xpinstall.signatures.required I then re-installed uBlock Origin (also yesterday) which immediately re-enabled it, and allowed it to remain enabled with me doing nothing else, so I left it at that. Then today when I looked in the Firefox 'Add-ons Manager' Firefox ESR Portable 60.6.1 has automatically on its own installed: hotfix-update-xpi-intermediate One thing I don't like at all about this mess is that "hotfix-update-xpi-intermediate" got installed with absolutely no notification whatsoever, and I wonder if some people might think it's malware. --------- This ordeal is making me think of going back to using SRWare Iron Portable as my main browser!
  2. Funny how it had no issue earlier today, and now it's messed up in Firefox ESR 60.6.1
  3. I personally couldn't find anything additional worth adding in that's stored within the Windows registry.

  5. Since it has a resident background running processes Smart Cleaning, it would help to first look for anything running in the background before attempting to uninstall it. I wouldn't consider it malware, simply because there's allot of software that doesn't uninstall fully, hence the reason to use an uninstaller tool such as the freeware Geek Uninstaller or Revo Uninstaller.
  6. From what I've read the reason is monitor resolution size is getting bigger. If it's maximized there will be no run-off, and the buttons in CCleaner will be usable.
  7. Since the issue is solved I'll lock this topic.

    Drive wipe

    Try disabling Hidden Files and Folders in Windows. I can't remember if it hides those files, or if they're just plainly visible.

    Drive wipe

    Look in the root directory for example if you ran it on drive C: look in drive C: but don't go into any sub-folders, there should be files or folders that have allot of Z's in the name, those would be the file created during the wipe and should be large in size.
  10. 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).
  11. 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.
  12. Post in the Suggestions forum area, located here: https://forum.piriform.com/forum/14-ccleaner-suggestions/
  13. 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.
  14. Added: DetectFile=%CommonAppData%\Oracle\Java Reason: Crucial/Micron Storage Executive uses a packaged/portable non-installed version of Java that writes usage data in the location of FileKey2.

  15. 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/
  16. CC likes to eat allot, but may draw the line there, too many carbs!
  17. 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.
  18. 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".
  19. 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?
  20. A batch file should work instead, or better yet look for an actual "replacement" on the Microsoft Store.
  21. Since it's an old topic I'll close it then. Thanks for making the both of us look sane Nergal!
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
