  1. That incognito switch tacked onto the end of the target in an already pre-made shortcut should work with Chrome/Chromium and the "clones" of those, unless of course they've did things completely differently in CC Browser. Try this (note I have not used CC Browser yet, just assuming it works in accordance with other Chrome/Chromium based browsers): 1. Right-click the CC Browser shortcut, click Properties, then click the Shortcut tab: 2. Find the Target:, this points to where the .EXE file resides and what the shortcut will run, then paste this at the end of it: -incognito Should look similar to this, using generic names here: "C:\Path To A Chrome-Chromium Based Browser\BrowserExecutableFile.exe" -incognito 3. Start CC Browser to see if it's running in Incognito mode (or whatever they may be calling it instead).

    If it's the OS license, i.e.; Windows 10 it's either tied to your Microsoft Account. Or if you have a Local Account it's tied to your hardware.
  3. @wazzyl Go to the Malwarebytes Forums and ask for help. I was on their forum a couple of days ago and looked at some topics where some people had issues with the licensing.
  4. Might want to also look up Google documentation about Chrome as well. The way some of the settings are nestled inside sub-menus in a Chrome/Chromium-based browser may not be obvious where something is located, so some digging is usually required. Also as with all browsers get into the regular habit of backing up your browser profile, simply zipping the whole browser profile folder into a single ZIP archive will suffice and will likely save you from a headache at some point - as I remember years ago some Chromium based browsers nuking my profile after updating the browser version.
  5. Looking through all the built-in cleaners I've got ticked I don't see what could be causing it. Although, if you're using anything like the community Winapp2.ini file, or any CCleaner enhancers try to disable or remove them and see if that remedies the issue.
  6. One more try and one of us mods will just have to close this topic. It's becoming a waste of time.
  7. Like Nergal originally stated it's better to just post a picture in an actual picture format like .JPG, or .PNG. Even the PDF people won't like to mess around with and it's generally frowned upon to use such a file format to show a picture since PDF's are also an avenue for infections.
  8. One thing to try, just in case IE has any possible corruption is to open IE and used the cleaning tools built into it to clean everything. Then restart the computer, and give CCleaner a try again and see if it's any faster. Might work, might not, but worth a try.
  9. While Piriform products are still compatible with good ole charished XP SP3, that might not necessarily be the same for the NSIS installer/uninstaller they use. With the way CCleaner installs which is minimal by my books by not creating a bunch of stuff all over the system in files and registry settings I'd be rather confident in the abilities of both Geek Uninstaller Free and especially Revo Uninstaller Free removing it after a reboot in case Smart Cleaning ("used to be called Monitoring") is enabled in CCleaner -- even though the default built-in NSIS uninstaller is failing. I thought not too long ago someone else reported a failure of it uninstalling, can't seem to find that topic. Maybe the uninstall failure has something to do with Smart Cleaning if it's enabled on the system, since it causes so many failures to merely update/upgrade CCleaner with it running resident in the background.
  10. Might help to mention what operating system you're using, and if you have administrator privileges on the account you're using - that's about all else I can think about at the moment.
  11. It would be nice for users to have an official source for old versions right on the official website CCleaner.com. Allot of software makers still offer at the very least the last version that worked with a particular old/legacy OS -- which is always infinitely safer to get from the official website.
  12. Try to get it from the official CCleaner site, you could manually edit the download link to reflect the version you're wanting Example change the resulting file name in the URL from ccsetup561.exe to ccsetup540.exe or whatever it is you're after. Might work on download sites too, then again it might not. Edit: Just tested it by downloading CCleaner Portable v5.58 from CCleaner.com, merely by copy+paste+editing the URL and it worked.
  13. One reason IE cleaning may not work is if there's any software installed and resident that utilizes it for cache, cookies, etc., then CCleaner won't be able to clean IE. The IE lag or unresponsiveness to clean it I had thought they fixed, but maybe that just fixed it for Win10, I don't know exactly, but it did have that lag in multiple versions of Windows. Back when it was taking too long for users that were reporting it including myself on my system I just unticked those items for IE that were taking too long. Then once per week on Friday I'd clean those unticked items with CCleaner - that way I wasn't always waiting on it to clean IE during my multiple daily cleans
  14. I don't know the answer to your question, but what I do know if I were selling off a PC: I'd remove the old drive, and then I'd put a brand new drive into it keeping the old drive for myself -- just in case someone tried to recover data.
  15. Just an assumption but perhaps you're getting two because someone later edits the annoucement with the checksums/hashes (MD5, etc.,) of the downloads. Months ago I got so tired of seeing notifications in my email that I set up a spam filter for them so they go directly into the spam folder and don't consume any of my allocated lowly 2 or 3 MB amount on my free email since trying to configure my settings on the forum are completely ignored and always send them. But as of late I haven't been getting hardly any.
  16. Open Task Manager and EndTask any running CCleaner processes, then try the uninstall again. If that doesn't help perhaps uninstalling it by a different more robust means will work with either of the two freeware uninstallers linked below. Both do the same task by scanning for leftover files, folders, registry settings, and remove as much as they can. You may need to restart your computer after using them. * Geek Uninstaller Free * Revo Uninstaller Free
  17. Correct. It automatically installs KB4515384 which fixes the issue.
  18. You didn't pay me for anything, I'm just a volunteer. That link I gave you is the solution to the issue, if you look on Piriform's website via the link CCleaner provides to fix it they more-or-less give the same solution but don't provide the .REG file that the link I gave does provide which will automatically fix the problem after restarting Windows.
  19. I'm still on the Acer factory install of Win10, so essentially I've only ever updated it but never have did an initial install. Plus I also use O&O ShutUp10 which may have a huge hand in it being optional.
  20. For me it's still an optional update only, and separated from the "Check for updates" listed just above it. I wonder if they're perhaps testing the waters making it auto-install for some, and be an opt-in for others. Screenshot:
  21. Maybe also run via an admin Command Prompt: chkdsk /f C:
  22. If you're referring to Microsoft Edge Browser (the original one, not the brand new Chromium/Chrome based variant) 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
  23. That update doesn't automatically install though it's an optional update that is separated where the "Download and install now" text has to be clicked in order to get it. Pausing updates will mean you could miss other important updates such as those for Windows Defender if you use the built in antivirus, etc.
  24. See if anything in here helps, especially the part about end tasking any CCleaner processes running in the background before trying the install/upgrade: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/5739-solution-when-ccleaner-wont-install-or-download-windows/
