  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.
  7. Deleted CC update exe. Found two entries for Avast emergency update and two entries for Ccleaner update (public and private connections) and deleted all four. Earlier I forgot to mention that I had already found and deleted the scheduled task for Avast update. They hung around after I deleted Avast and its folder. Don't usually mess with the firewall but this seemed pretty straight forward. Once I found the settings, which I did not know where to go right away. Thank you for your help.
  8. Ccleaner v5.40.6411 (64-bit) updated itself to a version I do not want and I uninstalled the updated version and went to file hippo to get it back v5.40.6411, the one I want. When I clicked install I got Avast which I do not want and had to immediately uninstall that. If there was a chance to say I did not want it I missed it. Now I see something called smart or intelligent cookie scan is saving cookies I don’t want saved. How do I turn that off? Can’t find a setting for it. Also I used Ccleaner settings to stop update notifications. Although it worked for years it seems to have failed to stop yesterdays update. Although actually it didn’t notify me, it just did it without asking. I also disabled monitoring in the startup tool and unchecked it in settings. What else do I need to do to stop v5.40.6411 from updating? Edit - I also found Ccleaner update in Windows scheduled tasks and deleted it. Is there anything else?
  9. Apparently Avast bought Piriform in July, 2017 and broke CCleaner. It used to be a handy and reliable program. It is fast becoming junk full of bugs. Now Piriform also dumps third party programs for profit in its installer. Sloppy, greedy and disappointing.
  10. Yes, search got broke as you say. I tried to rebuild twice with no joy. Finally used system restore to get it back to normal and it is fine now. I am not sure what broke it though. I never intended to run Ccleaner on search, but at some point in the new installation I clicked on “Restore default settings”. I did not know running Ccleaner on search was a default setting and so it ran. Search is now unselected. But it may have been broke when I first ran the new version and many ESENT errors popped up. I think this happened before I clicked to restore default settings and may have been why I tried default settings to see if that would stop the error. Finally repaired all with system restore. Only had to go back a couple days. Search is fine now, everything else is back up to date and I have Ccleaner v5.40.6411 back and I am not going to update it again until this all gets sorted out.
  11. I agree, please add "Advanced Option" to Settings so it can be the DEFAULT display. Even more annoying is the slow speed. I analyze first. I use Chrome so there is almost nothing on IE 11. Still the icon spins and spins stuck on “IE history” for 15-20 seconds. But the results show that it is “Temporary Internet Files” that had 1KB in 1 File. That is what slows down cleaning; analyzing is just as fast as it used to be. But when running Ccleaner, it stalls on “IE History” for 15-20 seconds before it moves on and finishes. Even if IE History is not listed after analysis that is the file Ccleaner stalls on.
  12. Yep, Piriform broke Ccleaner. Here are two attachments made with the snipping tool. Ccleaner results and Event Viewer.
  13. Yes, I see now the icon spins and spins stuck on IE history. (I do not have Edge. Still using Windows 7 sp1 64bit.) I do not use IE. Yet IE history has 1KB in 1 File and the icon spins for 15-20 seconds on it. Never did that before.
  14. How do I go back to previous version? This new version is slow cleaning. I see others report slow analyzing, but I have mostly noticed very slow cleaning and the new interface is an awful idea. I also would like old summary list back please.
