  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. Correct. It automatically installs KB4515384 which fixes the issue.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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:
  13. Maybe also run via an admin Command Prompt: chkdsk /f C:
  14. 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
  15. 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.
  16. 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/
  17. You haven't provided any info to troubleshoot it. However in the meantime have a look this topic for a possible solution, there's many in it: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/5739-solution-when-ccleaner-wont-install-or-download-windows/
  18. Deleting what may be considered as a system folder I doubt the makers of CCleaner would implement. This may or may not be what you're after, it's what I found when searching: https://www.howtogeek.com/331361/how-to-remove-the-3d-objects-folder-from-this-pc-on-windows-10/
  19. Doesn't seem to matter how much oomph a PC has, and even fast SSDs (NVMe or SATA) won't help.

  21. Drive wiping/free space wiping tools have the ability to screw up a hard disk if they hang/freeze and even if the user cancels what they're doing. Usually the disk will be marked as the RAW format and a utility like Microsoft's own FDISK would have to be used to repair the disk. If it freezes again and if I were you I wouldn't push my luck with it!
  22. Thinking back on why it failed with a USB 3.0 flash drive -- perhaps it runs some test on them or whatnot to see if they'll actually boot, I know some USB 3.0 flash drives from reading Amazon.com reviews won't boot and I have a few of those myself I suppose from ADATA and Transcend. Dirt cheap, old design, and frustratingly super slow SanDisk Cruzer Glide USB 2.0 flash drives are bootable.
  23. I wonder if first running ChkDsk /r (which will take several hours in of itself) on that hard disk would fix the issue, i.e.; maybe CCleaner is stuck on a bad disk block, or some other error causing it issues.
  24. After installing the mentioned KB in this topic is anyone else also having the issue of Focus Assist keep re-enabling itself and issuing notifications even after supposedly fully turning it off. It's happened to me multiple times, especially if I've did a cold boot or restart.
