  1. I know I don't come here much anymore, but this is going too far
  2. I spoke too soon, another 34 emails this morning
  3. Well it does have a habit of sending 2 email notifications for any new post there, but 200 (or 212 to be precise) is a little OTT
  4. Well it SEEMS to have stopped now, none for the last two hours
  5. I'm getting one for every thread ever started in the announcements section. A small selection (there's 212 in total, so far):
  6. Just had my email inbox fill up with notifications for every post ever created in the announcements section EDIT: And they're STILL coming. About 250, over last 5 hours
  7. 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.
  8. "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.
  9. If the screen is empty it's not working, should be a list of drivers showing, regardless of whether they're old or not.
  10. 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
  11. "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
  12. 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.
  13. 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 )
  14. 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.
  15. 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)
