  1. Hosts File Update

    Got it. Thanks for the heads-up!
  2. If this has been discussed here before, sorry for the repeat. On the CCleaner Applications tab, a number of applications are listed for cleaning if checked. How do I find out what specific folders/files are cleaned for any given application. Thanks EDIT: Oops never mind. I found the /EXPORT switch. Just what I was looking for.
  3. 5.46 Latest Version Unwanted and Problems

    You know things are bad when even the forum moderators are upset with Piriform.
  4. 5.46 Latest Version Unwanted and Problems

    That is the most BS logic I have ever heard, Piriform! You have taken an excellent product, totally screwed it up and angered a lot of loyal users.
  5. 5.46 Latest Version Unwanted and Problems

    For me it is way beyond annoying. I will not have a piece of software where I can't control it's updating itself.
  6. 5.46 Latest Version Unwanted and Problems

    Nope. Later this afternoon, CCleaner updated itself to v5.46 on both my Win7 PCs when I wasn't even using them. I had left v5.40 installed for months with no problem. I am so angry I am beyond words. Looking in Task Scheduler, it still says CCupdate.exe has never run. How is v5.46 getting installed and how do I stop it?

    I found 2 more instances of the ccupdate.exe file by looking in my firewall settings: C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\Temp C:\Windows\Temp I deleted both files and removed the entries from the firewall list.

    I disconnected from the internet, deleted everything in the C:\Program Files\CCleaner folder and reinstalled v5.40. This time the install stayed at v5.40. I went into the CCleaner options and unchecked "Inform me of updates to CCleaner." The CCleaner Update task still shows in the Task Scheduler but the last run time is Never. This is now all that is in the C:\Program Files\CCleaner folder after reinstalling with the internet disconnected. The install files are all dated back to 02/07/2018 which is correct for v5.40. I'll have to wait and see if an update check still runs and automatically updates to v5.46. I am really beginning to hate Piriform for what they have done to CCleaner.

    I don't know what you mean by "emergency updater." Here is a screen shot of what is in my task scheduler.
  10. 5.46 Latest Version Unwanted and Problems

    Every time I try to install v5.40 Slim, it automatically updates to v5.46. I am so mad! How do I stop this unwanted update?
  11. HDD detected as SSD

    Version 1.32 detects the Hitachi HDD in my Lenovo T410 laptop as an SSD, which is wrong. --> http://speccy.piriform.com/results/3GvkSQHhgxnT6Bcg1GzGJMe
  12. External HDD displayed as SSD

    I had to go back to Defraggler v2.21.993 for this very reason. I've stopped updating all Piriform (Avast) programs. Sad state of affairs.
  13. Changes in v5.45 and your feedback

    Thanks for the detailed explanation. Your reasoning makes sense to me.
  14. 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.
