  1. Thank you for the new Beta programme. I can confirm that context menu and command line cleaning are working again! But still not fixed: crashing in Windows Safe Mode (boot option 4).
  2. Winapp2.ini updates: https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/043ba42e0fa0b94c3d1c772ad3f5a28a102833b6 https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/9dd627fc8ece26aabec47fd80c12d756a2f19ab2
  3. 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).
  4. Strange! Maybe uninstalling and reinstalling CCleaner will fix it?
  5. Is "Save all settings to INI file" under Options > Advanced checked?
  6. 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".
  7. Winapp2.ini updates: https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/3a45cbf50d745037c45e4b4b96680722cd3475bd https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/0a6ff0803b353539c44770bd7aaad5238bcb093a
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. Winapp2.ini update: https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/599d3c9c6895b6682a8b37d9dcd97925431b0359
  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. 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.
  14. You could try the following options: https://www.thewindowsclub.com/winsxs-folder-cleanup-windows-8-1.
  15. Winapp2.ini updates: https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/e22e97e681edc140c21d265e7ffc2140ab7c3cbb https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/40e7b8ff9985d75aa9aaf0f756bb7aa6cffb46b9
  16. Thanks for the modified entry. For the FileKey3 you can use the variable %Documents%: [Syncios Cell Phone Backup & Manage *] LangSecRef=3024 Detect1=HKCU\Software\Syncios Detect2=HKCU\Software\Syncios Data Transfer Default=False FileKey1=%AppData%\Syncios|android.log;log.txt FileKey2=%AppData%\Syncios Data Transfer|*.log FileKey3=%Documents%\Syncios Data Transfer|preference_conf.ini.old.bak
  17. JFYI: I can confirm this bug, too! (Windows 10 Pro 1803 64-bit, only Windows Defender) More threads:
  18. @javagate: I think he answered your question already. It seems that a Windows update causes the issue. But it's strange that previous versions of CCleaner are still working...
  19. Thanks for the revised entry. Winapp2.ini updates: https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/ea1dc7b355bfae90ce19ce463c3c101beaea6ebf https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/04caa3b62cfc2ba273e2bd2b61e5d1cd5eae0dd2
  20. I'm not sure if CCleaner is responsible for it, but the following should help: Open a "Command Line" with Administrator rights and enter: ATTRIB "C:\Program Files (x86)" +R
  21. I can confirm the bugs! 1. Free 2. No, just Windows Defender 3. No 4. Yes, Windows 10 Pro 1803 64-bit I can confirm that also.
  22. Winapp2.ini updates: https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/e2db8b12e6ea333145381b10a616d18710df9c91 https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/8bc1717672f904cddfbeaec0d00f36554f0db372
