  1. RAPR- DriverStore Explorer 0.8.4.2 Released

    You don't delete EVERYTHING. After it's loaded drivers you can click the "Select old drivers" button and that will tick entries that probably aren't needed and can delete them if you want. Drivers which were installed on the computer when you got it may not be able to be deleted, so don't try to force delete any that it says can't be deleted. But as with anything like this, the risk is yours, make sure you have backups in case it all goes wrong. Personally I only use it to delete old nVidia drivers (which took up a big chunk of space), anything else takes up such negligible space it's not worth messing anything up for.
  2. RAPR- DriverStore Explorer 0.8.4.2 Released

    "No entry loaded" at startup is normal, it usually takes 5-10 second to load (maybe longer). Same if you click refresh. "There are one or more open sessions" suggests you've multiple copies of the program running, check task manager to make sure there's not a copy running/hanging in the background.

    If the screen is empty it's not working, should be a list of drivers showing, regardless of whether they're old or not.
  4. The Firefox/Mozilla Thread

    It's not exactly a rising issue that needs addressing. It's a bit like making the entire planet take vitamin C tablets cos there are still some people that get scurvy. And those people in rural America have presumably coped perfectly well updating their browser for the last 20 years. Just doesn't add up to cynical old me
  5. The Firefox/Mozilla Thread

    "the agent is aimed at users on slow connections" I'm not buying that. That's an almost non-existent issue in this day and age. My cynical side thinks this will be for more than one way traffic
  6. RAPR- DriverStore Explorer 0.8.4.2 Released

    I use it mainly to delete old nVidia driver stuff after each driver update, which uses up a load of space over time. Other stuff it lists, at least on my laptop, is barely worth bothering with.
  7. Feature Previews on v5.48.6834

    Couldn't agree more. This is the second time in the post Avast era they've added something that went against the Piriform ethos, and for the first time ever (and I've been here 14 years), I no longer trust CCleaner/Piriform. Piriform was always really attentive to issues like this that were raised, part of what got them where they are (and got them trusted). Users in this forum always felt like participants in the programs progress. Now it seems there's an unstoppable roadmap in place of where Avast wants to take it, and to hell with keeping the users informed, or listening to them. And the thread Nukecad links to just shows what a confusing shambles this whole random feature preview thing is - you've got a new member signing up to ask for help, and extremely long term members/helpers AND MODERATORS, who just look stupid cos they have no idea what's going on cos they've never even SEEN the feature that isn't working! It's just stupid. Either roll features out to all users, or have a beta branch. (I'll quit whinging and go away now )
  8. Feature Previews on v5.48.6834

    I read it as enforced beta tester recruitment (as they've added it to the main program with no opt out) with the ability to enable/disable features remotely. I'm not touching any update until that opt out is added.
  9. The Firefox/Mozilla Thread

    Any reluctant updaters made the jump from the v52 ESR yet and any thoughts? Are the web extensions caught up anywhere near what the old addons used to be? (I keep putting it off, but gotta do it asap. Or possibly switch to Opera which I tried again for the first time in ages recently and was really impressed by)
  10. The Firefox/Mozilla Thread

    So revolutionary. I've had my Firefox set up to do this for years - tabs restored from last session and FF set to run at startup
  11. The Firefox/Mozilla Thread

    Had me panicking there, thought it was an early end to FF52 releases! I intend to cling on to my working addons and Classic Theme Restorer look till the very last second
  12. Seeing as you apparently missed it (if you didn't then you're just whining for the sake of it):
  13. It's Avast's now, gotta pump up the bloat Or, undoubtedly, official answer will be "lots of code changes to make way for big things coming soon" (Sorry, I'll put the sarcasm hat away now )
  14. This is still an issue in v5.42.
  15. Avast Hidden Install

    Looks like Avast will be pushed by the program once installed too now. Release notes for 5.42: " Where appropriate, CCleaner Free may recommend improvements to your system’s antivirus protection " I joked with the last version that the decline of CCleaner had started, it's spiralling ever quicker by the looks of it. But hey, we had many good years, and I'm sure the Pirifom guys made some money out of the sale, so can't really complain I suppose
