  1. Great! I'm glad I was able to help.
  2. CCleaner doesn't change the "CustomLocationX" entries. Your "CustomLocationX=FIREFOX|..." entries for Waterfox should work (Waterfox). If the option "Save all settings to INI file" is checked and you don't have a correct "ccleaner.ini" file in the installation folder, then the installation is corrupt. That's probably the reason why the "CustomLocationX=FIREFOX|..." entries don't work also. I assume that you have accessed the build-in "winapp.ini" (this "file" isn't visible by default) with Resource Hacker and not the "ccleaner.ini" file, because that phrase isn't in a "ccleaner.ini" file, but in the build-in "winapp.ini". You have to add the "CustomLocationX=FIREFOX|..." entries to the "ccleaner.ini" file in the installation folder (not to the build-in winapp/winreg/winsys.ini).
  3. Strange! Maybe uninstalling and reinstalling CCleaner will fix it?
  4. Is "Save all settings to INI file" under Options > Advanced checked?
  5. CCleaner Windows 10 problem

    Edge is a system app and you can uninstall it only with "workarounds". Did you really do this? Apart from this, please check the following: - Open the "Settings" App. - Click on "Apps". - Click on "Default apps". - Check that Edge is not the "Web browser".
  6. Winapp2.ini additions

  7. New Brave Browser Support

    Did you try the following already? https://www.ccleaner.com/docs/ccleaner/advanced-usage/ccleaner-ini-files/how-to-clean-user-data-from-non-standard-mozilla-browsers I guess CustomLocation1 for Brave should be: CustomLocation1=CHROME|C:\Users\<your user name>\AppData\Roaming\brave
  8. (work around) Enable Active Monitoring

    Sorry, but it works! Why should I confirm/post a workaround that doesn't work?! I used the workaround on 3 different systems and on all 3 systems the "Active Monitoring" still stays off (for 7 days now, no matter how often I reboot). If you read the many other posts, you will see that the "CCUpdate.exe" is the culprit. But if you have disabled the scheduled task, the "Active Monitoring" isn't able to reenable itself. The scheduled task gets created while installation only. Therefore, if you disable it, it stays disabled.
  9. (work around) Enable Active Monitoring

    The first workaround posted by TheOwner works reliable: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/52329-workaround-how-permanently-disable-monitoring-in-5456611/ Easy version: - Open CCleaner and uncheck "Enable Active Monitoring" under Options > Monitoring. - Close CCleaner. - Run the following batch file as administrator. First copy and paste into Notepad and save as e.g. "cc.bat": @ECHO OFF TASKKILL /F /FI "IMAGENAME eq CCleaner*" SCHTASKS /Change /TN "CCleaner Update" /DISABLE REG DELETE "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run" /v "CCleaner Monitoring" /f
  10. Winapp2.ini additions

    Winapp2.ini update: https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/599d3c9c6895b6682a8b37d9dcd97925431b0359
  11. Great! I'm glad I was able to help.
  12. CCleaner settings are still stored under the registry key "Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Piriform\CCleaner". The registry key "Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Piriform\CCleaner" is used for a few installation settings only. If your registry key "Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Piriform\CCleaner" is empty, then you probably enabled "Save all settings to INI file". Therefore, you have to add the CustomLocation1 to the ccleaner.ini file. And you have to specify the path to the user profile, for example: CustomLocation1=CHROME|C:\Users\<your user name>\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome Beta\User Data\Default (Quotation marks are not necessary.)
  13. CCleaner 5.45 riddled with bugs

    I can confirm all three bugs also! Workaround for #2: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/52280-unable-disable-monitoring-in-5456611/?tab=comments#comment-297838. @Piriform: I'm really disappointed about the poor in-house testing and the extremely slow bug fixing. Please stop adding new and useless features and concentrate on bug fixing! And please release a bug free version as soon as possible, not in 4 weeks or later. Other developers are fixing bugs within hours, your developers need many weeks or months! Why? And keep in mind that your customers of the non-free versions paid for the now broken functions and that there is a warranty for software in the EU.
