  1. Changes in v5.45 and your feedback

    Thanks for the detailed explanation. Your reasoning makes sense to me.
  2. Can't disable active monitoring

    5.40.6411 is the version I am using on both my Win 7 machines until this mess gets straightened out.
  3. Intrusive CCleaner pop-up.

    I leave past version installation files on my PC (originally downloaded from the official Piriform website) just in case of a problem like this so I can easily revert back to an older version that I know is genuine.
  4. Intrusive CCleaner pop-up.

    Like you, I'm staying with v5.40. I don't see Piriform changing now that they are owned by Avast. They are just going to ignore our complaints and wait for the uproar to die down.
  5. Dear Tech Support

    Dear Tech Support, Last year I upgraded from Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0 and noticed a distinct slowdown in overall system performance, particularly in the flower and jewelry applications, which operated flawlessly under Boyfriend 5.0. In addition, Husband 1.0 uninstalled many other valuable programs, such as Romance 9.5 and Personal Attention 6.5, and then installed undesirable programs such as: NBA 5.0, NFL 3.0 and Golf Clubs 4.1. Conversation 8.0 no longer runs, and House cleaning 2.6 simply crashes the system. Please note that I have tried running Nagging 5.3 to fix these problems, but to no avail. What can I do? Signed, Desperate The response (that came weeks later out of the blue): Dear Desperate: First keep in mind, Boyfriend 5.0 is an Entertainment Package, while Husband 1.0 is an operating system. Please enter command: I thought you loved me.html and try to download Tears 6.2. Do not forget to install the Guilt 3.0 update. If that application works as designed, Husband 1.0 should then automatically run the applications Jewelry 2.0 and Flowers 3.5. However, remember, overuse of the above application can cause Husband 1.0 to default to Grumpy Silence 2.5, Happy Hour 7.0, or Beer 6.1. Please note that Beer 6.1 is a very bad program that will download the Farting and Snoring Loudly Beta version. Whatever you do, DO NOT, under any circumstances, install Mother-In-Law 1.0 as it runs a virus in the background that will eventually seize control of all your system resources. In addition, please do not attempt to re-install the Boyfriend 5.0 program. These are unsupported applications and will crash Husband 1.0. In summary, Husband 1.0 is a great program, but it does have limited memory and cannot learn new applications quickly. You might consider buying additional software to improve memory and performance. We recommend Cooking 3.0. Good Luck!
  6. Curious. This time it didn't redirect to the main ccleaner page and after a few seconds it did download. Gremlins, I guess.
  7. Hmmm.... I see the latest SLIM version is now up on the Builds page. But when I click on it, the download page briefly flashes, but then redirects to the main ccleaner page. Didn't we have this problem a few months ago? Seems familiar.
  8. Need Google Chrome Help

    I am running 2 Win 7 Pro PCs and have been using IE11 on both. I have been finding more and more websites that no longer work properly under IE11, so I installed Chrome V65.0.3325.146 to try it. I ran into a problem almost immediately trying to paste passwords into various websites on both PCs. In IE11, I would copy/paste the password (CTRL+c/CTRL+v) with no problem. In Chrome, when I paste the password into the field, extra, random characters are added which causes the login to fail. In the attached screen shot, the first 10 characters are the correct password (not a real password I use - example only) but everything after the "3" are added when I paste into Chrome. IE11 and Firefox do not have this problem. It also pastes correctly into Notepad. I installed the ShowPassword extension in Chrome in order to see what was happening which is how I got the screen shot. I have tried pasting with both CTRL+v and CRTL+Shift+v but get the same results. I have installed 2 extensions which did not help - Allow Copy and Don't F**k With Paste. I know that Chrome has an internal password manager but I choose not to use it. Any idea what is causing this password paste problem and how to fix it?
  9. Hosts File Update

    Got it! Thanks for the heads-up as usual, hazelnut.
  10. What happened to the Portable / Builds option?

    For some reason, the familiar link to the Builds page has disappeared from the download page, but at mta posted, the direct link still gets you to the right page.
  11. Hmmm?!? I wonder if that was an "oops" or will the Builds page eventually go away. Inquiring minds.....
  12. What happened to the link to the builds page that used to be on the download page? I had to use the link posted above and was finally able to get the Slim version today.
  13. Gateway Time-Out

    It must have been a temporary hiccup. It seems fine today. Carry on.
  14. Gateway Time-Out

    Anyone else seeing this problem with the forum? It's intermittent.
