  1. The "Thanks for playing fair" popup has disappeared. I have not as yet seen the new one. Guess it will eventually arrive. I think Nergal was successful in getting the "development team" to fix the problem. (Thanks Nergal) Ccleaner may now be working as it is supposed to work. We are going to get popups. The test is do we keep getting the same popup over and over. Nothing is going to stop Avast from advertising.
  2. Thought it might be my fault. Maybe if I got the latest version of Ccleaner it would stop erasing its own cookie. No joy. Although Ccleaner does not tell its users, ya have to move their cookie, ipm-provider.ff.avast.com, to the "cookies to keep" box or Ccleaner will keep erasing it and the pop up will keep popping up. Be nice if they had told people that. Found a discussion from a year ago on this site about how the cookie is all for us users so that Ccleaner knows when we have seen one of their prompts and won't send it again. Well that doesn't seem to be working . They are not "whitelisted by default," as Stephen seems to think.
  3. It's a cookie. Not the registry. I have been using same version of Ccleaner since November 26, 2018. I have unchecked the box next to "inform me of updates." I guess Ccleaner somehow calls home because I now have this tracking cookie on my computer: ipm-provider.ff.avast.com. When I run Ccleaner it cleans it and the next time I use Ccleaner I get the pop up. If I save avast’s tracking cookie, the next time I open Ccleaner I don’t get the popup. Thank you. I guess I will have to tolerate the popup as I really don’t want to take avast with me everywhere I go. Is there another cleaner out there? I really don’t like what has happened to Ccleaner. It is not at all as friendly as it used to be.
  4. Thanks for your reply. This is happening more than once. I am not sure why. Sometimes after I have turned my computer off and back on. But sometimes if it has gone to sleep and then I use CCleaner. And sometimes when I clean, it happens several times in a row. It seldom does not happen. It is very annoying. Whatever the development team planned, that is not what is happening on my machine. If you get word why this has gone nuts on my computer and find a solution, please post. Thank you again.
  5. I would really like some help. Has this not happened to anyone else? I am using Windows 7 home premium sp1 operating system. Ccleaner 5.49.6856 (64bit). Everything was just fine until all of a sudden this thing started popping up in the lower right hand corner of my computer screen a couple days ago.
  6. What is this and how do I get it to stop popping up? I am a single user on a home computer. What is with this thing popping up every time I open CCleaner? I am not in a commercial environment. See attachment from my snipping tool.
