  1. Changes in v5.45 and your feedback

    luckily the inbuilt MS cleanmgr program, which has gotten better with Windows 10, does just as good a job cleaning Windows as CC did.
  2. SSD plus Optane optimizer

    no solution I'm afraid, not if DF is wrongly detection the SSD as a HDD. it's a long-standing, known, unresolved issue with DF and CC. I have a batch file of maintenance tasks, to optimise a SSD, I use this; defrag %systemdrive% /L /V
  3. Help Corrupt file not fixing

    is it just Acrobat Reader that is corrupted, or others? if just the one, uninstall and reinstall the software. if others, it may be a sign of deeper issues (gremlins, hard drive failure) and you should be backing up, scanning your drive, perhaps even a repair reload of Windows. to get you started, start an elevated command prompt and do these; chkdsk c: /r sfc /scannow
  4. Changes in v5.45 and your feedback

    if it is, it was completely unintentional. maybe my subconscious knows more than she lets on. but now you mention it - I like that idea and will stick to it, my 40 days of mourning for what was, and will never be again. as to staff in the Who's Online status, yeah, I don't think they have increased any activity on that front. I usually see the odd one lurking around. if they bothered enough to log in and browse, why not spend the few extra seconds and; post an update, say Hi, give us a status report, tell us what's coming down the pipeline, post some feel-good news - ANYTHING, but no, let's stay mouth shout and let the crazy members prattle on with their trivial chatter.
  5. Notepad++

    Notepad++ v7.5.8 bug-fixes: 1. Remove annoying "no update" notification. 2. Fix Folder as Workspace not updating regression. 3. Fixed crash issue by checking & unchecking "Disable extension column" option in preferences dialog. 4. Fixed a crash when trying to launch a secondary instance with command line arguments. 5. Fix "Explorer Here" from "Folder as Workspace" problem if folder name contains comma.
  6. Slow launch

    the delayed start, like the one you describe, is common when using winapp2.ini due to its size and the sheer time taken to process its contents. but this shouldn't be your issue. as a first try, I would rollback to an earlier version (personally, try v5.40 first) and see if that helps. uninstall your current version first. then go into the Program Files folder for CC and delete its contents (keep the .ini file if you have customised settings) download the latest build from here; https://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/builds (or use FileHippo for previous versions) reboot the PC then install CC from your downloaded file. if you need to convert this Free version to the Pro, go to Options > About and enter your license key.
  7. Changes in v5.45 and your feedback

    sadly there has been no response from any 'organisation representative' that I have seen except for that one by @Stephen Piriform where he discussed the mistake and the intent to undo it. and the company's lack of such communication is simply fanning the flames. the vacuum is being filled regardless, by everyone else, except the one's in authority.
  8. Slow launch

    so it's v5.44 and it does work but takes 5-10secs until you see any activity? do you use winapp2.ini or any other enhancements? what was the previous version you had that did work OK?
  9. g'day Bob and welcome. no, there is no Move button. Disk Analyser is to find out what files are taking up your space and to tell you where they live. but on your reasoning why.... be aware that if you move those files, you are probably relocating them to a potentially more 'insecure' place. hard drives die all the time, and external ones die even more. due to their mobility, even discounting the usual knocks and drops, they get bumped more often and all drives hate excessive vibrations. if you are moving those files off your PC to reclaim space, can I suggest you also get yourself another external drive and duplicate those files across both drives. it never hurts to have a backup of your precious data. (see my sig)
  10. CCleaner on Vista laptop

    for now, I would remove all AV's and let the inbuilt Windows AV protect you for the time being. personally, Avast AV, although still good protection, has dropped the ball when it comes to ads and pop-ups. I used to use/recommend those two years ago but moved on when they both went down the wrong road. a good, trouble-free one for now is Avira. as to /debug mode. start a command prompt, and using CD, change the directory path to c:\program files\ccleaner (or where ever yours lives). then type ccleaner64.exe /debug and it'll run in debug mode and run the program as you normally would. when you exit it would have made a ccleaner64_your version_date_time.log file. have a gander in that or attach it in your next post and let's see what stands out.
  11. CCleaner 5.45 is spyware

    known issue with Monitoring unable to be turned off. v5.45 has been pulled and v5.44 should be the latest version to use. (or earlier, available at FileHippo)
  12. CCleaner on Vista laptop

    also, try the Slim or Portable builds from here; https://www.ccleaner.com/ccleaner/builds maybe you'll have better luck with those.
  13. CCleaner download prob

    see if this helps. uninstall your current version first. then go into the Program Files folder for CC and delete its contents (keep the .ini file if you have customised settings) download the latest build from here; https://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/builds (or use FileHippo for previous versions) reboot the PC then install CC from your downloaded file. if you need to convert this Free version to the Pro, go to Options > About and enter your license key. if no luck, try the install with the PC in Safe Mode. or try the Slim or Portable builds to see if they work.
  14. The Wrong Temperature Thread

    after three and a half years of collecting user's reports, I think they should have a good enough pool of data to work from.
  15. The Wrong Temperature Thread

    thread started Feb 2015. not one Admin response or acknowledgement. 5 releases of Speccy since this thread started. users still reporting problems. please!, somebody tell me that Piriform/Avast cares. I see no reason why this thread should not be closed as it is seemingly serving no purpose.
