  1. Maybe Windows 10 having a tantrum, I dealt with one of those a few minutes ago, and sometimes restarting the system will fix issues.
  2. Are you not able to use themes from the Google Chrome Web Store? https://chrome.google.com/webstore/ I know in the past whatever Chromium/Chrome based browser I used had full access to them, and addons/extensions.
  3. By default CCleaner will save all .REG backups in the Documents ("My Documents") folder, unless you've changed where it saves the backups. 1. Start > Run > RegEdit.exe -or- via the Start Menu area Cortana/Search just type in: RegEdit Windows should give a UAC prompt which will allow it to run it as an Administrator. 2. Then in Registry Editor ("RegEdit") click 'File > Import' and browse to where CCleaner made the .REG file backup and select it via Registry Editor (note by default Registry Editor should be pointing in your Documents/My Documents folder, so you shouldn't have to browse to anywhere), it will then attempt to import the .REG file and either tell you it was successful or failed.
  4. Try the Corrupted Recycle Bin Fix. It's a common issue, and attempting the fix won't break anything.
  5. Yes now called Smart Cleaning, and the documentation/help site needs updated also to reflect the name change.
  6. Easy Clean uses its own settings, they have nothing to do with user selected items in Custom Clean. Hence the reason I gave you those instructions a couple of posts up from this one.
  7. See if it has anything with either product needing particular cookies to remain left intact on your computer. In CCleaner you can configure the Cookies to Keep, instructions: https://www.ccleaner.com/docs/ccleaner/ccleaner-settings/choosing-which-cookies-to-keep
  8. It's in the community winapp2.ini file as the cleaning entry: Microsoft Edge Insider
  9. Confirmed! I'm seeing the same thing.
  10. Yes, but I could also see a scenario where someone gets their SSD RMA'd under the warranty period if it fails. And if there is a way for the manufacturer to know it's been defragmented the warranty could be void.
  11. Then those in that opinion should study the SSD manufacturer recommendations on their official websites. I've seen at least two SSD Manufacturers with FAQ's that state SSDs do not need defragmenting, but they don't elaborate. Then on the other hand: Defrag and Optimize Drives ("Windows Defrag") will occasionally defrag files on an SSD if the fragmentation is getting out of hand, since there is supposedly an upper threshold even for SSDs on how fragmented a file can become -- that is if the SSD (the good variety) will actually obey such commands since nobody really knows what they're doing under the hood since they're essentially a little computer themselves.
  12. I've seen script errors display on the desktop before but only way back in the Windows 98 days with the error being from Internet Explorer -- often it was the result of adware/spyware being installed on the system or even an infected system.
  13. I'm so used to search getting broken that I just put a ton of shortcuts into a folder on the desktop, then that folder "kind of acts like an app launcher."
  14. Perhaps that's what Nergal's comment was about without elaborating, and perhaps unticking/disabling under Firefox: Compact Databases would be a worthy test to see if it remedies the issue. Although, CCleaner very rarely actually compacts the Firefox databases ("SQLite files").
  15. If you haven't tried yet give the Slim build installer a try and see if that works (scroll down the page to see it): https://www.ccleaner.com/ccleaner/builds
  16. The other CCleaner download page is here, it will download the Standard installer. https://www.ccleaner.com/ccleaner/download
  17. What I mentioned in this post: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/55484-ccleaner-a-resource-hog-that-stops-computer/?do=findComment&comment=310629 This is that other post that I wasn't able to find earlier, with tons of CCleaner.exe files started as shown in Task Manager, although that isn't what this topic is about:
  18. A 2 years old installation on Windows 10 really does tell allot because Microsoft won't let old versions of CCleaner run on Windows 10, I don't know what the cut-off version is however. So essentially you're forced to update CCleaner if you wish to continue using it. The newest version of CCleaner is available at: https://www.ccleaner.com/ccleaner/builds Edit: Here's the official post by Dave about using old versions of CCleaner:
  19. I wonder if rebuilding the search index would fix it. Search is so easily broken in Win10!
  20. You need a checksum/hash tool program, those listed below I've tried and liked: * Implbits HashTab Personal (Free, Installation): http://implbits.com/products/hashtab/ * Nirsoft HashMyFiles (Free, Portable): https://www.nirsoft.net/utils/hash_my_files.html * Snap MD5: (Free, Portable): https://dan.hersam.com/software/snap-md5/ Nirsoft HashMyFiles is the most up-to-date!
  21. Also CCleaner versions are posted in the Announcements area of the forum, and shortly afterwards usually a few hours later the setup file checksums/hashes are edited into the announcement post so that people can very easily verify their download. As an example: CCleaner v5.61 announcement.
  22. I've never seen them mention on the main site and download pages what country using the software is banned in. I think it's just a matter of downloading it and installing it, or at least trying. If your ISP is using or bought old decommissioned Iran IP's you might have issues, that is if I'm remembering previous discussions about it correctly.
  23. Piriform would have to be able to reproduce it themselves to solve it. Also the forum isn't flooded at the moment with complaints about it.
  24. It was only mentioned because you made three posts in a roll about competing software, which has to be removed per Piriform's wishes going back many years. If you wish to tell someone about alternatives do so via a PM, then there's no posts to remove.
  25. When stopping any defrag software: 1. Make sure the program GUI shows that it successfully stopped. 2. After closing the defrag program, make sure it isn't still running in the background doing something, i.e.; still defragmenting. Reason to do this is if a defrag program is working on a large file (or a very slow hard disk) it may not stop for some amount of time.
