  1. Stephen - With full respect to you, I do think that CCleaner has lost it's way & the developers have forgotten why CCleaner has had billions of downloads over the years, I used it from the very beginning. I am never keeping cookies on CCleaner PRO so Avast can send me info I do not want, & or limit the frequency of these, no offence to you. At the moment the firewall block is stopping pop-ups but if or when Avast circumvents users from using the firewall to give privacy and to solve an issue that should never have been there on CCleaner PRO for one will leave permanently. Best wishes Paul
  2. Agree 300%+ I don't need any notifications ever until the Earth is Consumed by the Sun & then I'll have to have a think. Do the developers think they are dealing with Children. It's hard to believe a pay for cleanup program is planting cookies? For whatever reason? I've just blocked Piriform in my Firewall, to stop large pop-ups. Paul
  3. Can you tell me what you did as a resolution please?
  4. I've also tried to replicate this on my laptop & I can, it does seem to be caused not by the program settings being changed but maybe the Avast cookie???. The problem occurs after some other cleaner has been run such as in my case maybe [competition software]. I don't think it's unreasonable to be able to run another cleaner & then get not just pop-ups but a large one at that. I have tried every permutation in updates to no avail, I I totally uninstalled the program including all registry entries. The thing is there is no real reason for this window in the first place? After trying again given up.
  5. I've used CCleaner since day one when it was donation ware. I've now had enough of the program since Avast took it over. I have found a full & final solution to the recent issues & especially from the pop-ups. Totally sorted. I'm going to give the remainder of my licence to someone I 'Really' dislike, sad end to my use of CCleaner. Paul
  6. Pro version, 5.51.6939 - I am getting each & every time I start CCleaner a large pop-up telling me of it's new features, then a link to view these on the web (I've done that in desperation) - I don't really want or need this in the first place but to have it come up all the time is annoying to say the least. Why is there no 'Do Not Show Again' button - (or Never Show These Information Windows?) I've faffed with the pin thing at the top to no avail, I've rebooted & searched the program for an off button but not there. Piriform simply do not learn. I've just paid for 'Privacy Eraser Pro' as I don't get pop-ups with this nor privacy issues. This is a pay for program & I don't need pop-ups every time I use it. Is these a cure for this? Please?
  7. I've rarely posted on here & CCleaner is without doubt the best cleaner there is, no doubt about that - I have no intention of reverting to an earlier version but the white background around the tick boxes does make it a little hard to see, maybe a little tweaking of the new GUI will sort most peoples problems with the new look but I can live with it as it is - Thanks for a great product BTW. ... Paul
  8. Thank you very much for that, it's most kind of you. Much appreciated. I'll make sure further posts are in the correct area. Again... Thanks Paul
  9. I installed Pale Moon a couple of days ago & it's everything Firefox9.xx isn't. As a long term Chrome user I love PM. However I notice that CCleaner doesn't support PM 9.01. It seems CCleaner supported I think version 3.xx?. Is anyone planning on doing a Winapp2 for it. After some messing today it seems these files and or folders can be removed without causing havoc on the preferences side: C:\Users\N****\AppData\Local\Moonchild Productions\Pale Moon\Profiles\9ahib0j2.default\Cache\ C:\Users\N****\AppData\Local\Moonchild Productions\Pale Moon\Profiles\9ahib0j2.default\startupCache\ C:\Users\N****\Application Data\Moonchild Productions\Pale Moon\Profiles\9ahib0j2.default\bookmarkbackups\ C:\Users\N****\Application Data\Moonchild Productions\Pale Moon\Profiles\9ahib0j2.default\cookies.sqlite C:\Users\N****\Application Data\Moonchild Productions\Pale Moon\Profiles\9ahib0j2.default\downloads.sqlite C:\Users\N****\Application Data\Moonchild Productions\Pale Moon\Profiles\9ahib0j2.default\formhistory.sqlite C:\Users\N****\Application Data\Moonchild Productions\Pale Moon\Profiles\9ahib0j2.default\search.json C:\Users\N****\Application Data\Moonchild Productions\Pale Moon\Profiles\9ahib0j2.default\search.sqlite C:\Users\N****\Application Data\Moonchild Productions\Pale Moon\Profiles\9ahib0j2.default\sessionstore.bak I am interested if I have missed anything such as reg entries, if anyone can help it would be appreciated, I hope I’ve posted this in the right place & won't be roasted alive. Paul
  10. It seems that as ‘Opera version 10.xx’ has decided to move its file positions yet again to the far flung reaches of my PC resulting in CCleaner’ not cleaning all the ‘Opera’ folders with internet information in them correctly. I am using ‘Vista Premium’ with all updates applied. On my PC the 'Opera' paths that are not cleaned are as follows: C:\Users\me\appdata\local\opera\opera\opcacahe\*.* C:\Users\me\appdata\ocal\opera\opera\tempory_downloads\*.* C:\Users\me\appdata\local\opera\opera\vps\*.* This is for a single user setup, if you have multiple users may the Lord have mercy on you soul. New skins seem to be installed in: C:\Users\ThisUser\AppData\Roaming\Opera\Opera\skin I hope this helps: Regards, & thanks for a great product.
  11. Thanks for that, I will add the entries manually, and thanks for a great program CCleaner. Paul
  12. Any fix to get CCleaner working with the super fast Opera 10.1601. I appreciate it's a beta.
