  1. processes still running

    no argument there, and as @andavari says, the installer has had issues for many users, for ages - but not all - and I think that's why Piriform hasn't bothered too much about it.
  2. processes still running

    that's the beauty of the portable version - it doesn't get installed. you just double click the executable from where you downloaded it to and away you go. maybe you are doing that and the error is coming from when you try to run it?
  3. processes still running

    have you tried doing the above suggestion with the PC in Safe Mode?
  4. Multiple questions

    1. log files by their very nature just log events. if you want to see the history of an event, then Yes, keep your log files. all I can say is that in 30 years of professionally using PC's I have needed to look at a log file maybe 3 times. so, don't run CC if you are troubleshooting. 2. I've stayed on v5.40 so don'y know about that new feature - sounds wanky to me. 3. you run the potential to restore a 'broken' registry if the restore point has a snapshot of such a registry. cleaning the registry is always potentially unsafe not matyter how small and simply not needed these days except in removing gremlins. 4. it is msconfig, with a bit of %appdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup and %programdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup and for 32bit HKLM:\Software\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run HKLM:\Software\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce and for 64bit HKLM:\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run, HKLM:\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce, HKCU:\Software\Microsoft\Window\CurrentVersion\Run, HKCU:\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce 5. all depends if you want to keep what the cookies are saving 6. I've never had those options ticked. again, it's all down to personal preferences - do you what to delete everything or just everything but the last 24 hours?
  5. iTunes backup files.

    Do you need to restore something from the deleted iTunes backup folder? If not, all the personal stuff is still on your iDevice, just do another backup through iTunes.
  6. sadly, it's very common for them with that behaviour. actually, you could argue that you are lucky they chimed in at all - it is usually that rare.
  7. new software

    or try and get it resent via this; https://www.piriform.com/support/license-lookup
  8. New Microsoft Office Icons

    yeah, never here nor there with them really. I was going to say I haven't minded any of them but a better response would be, none of them I have hated.
  9. use this link to get the key resent to your email; https://www.piriform.com/support/license-lookup or a support ticket can be raised from here; https://piriform.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/requests/new
  10. Netgear router LED not working

    g'day lilamartin and welcome. so did you get the modem/router to connect to the web? what is the make/model of the Netgear unit? on the front, of all the LED's, which one is not lighting up? a snapshot of the modem would be beneficial.
  11. Fundamentally it comes down to two factors, bloat ware and Big Brother is watching.
  12. Registry command-line parameters

    There must be some deleted posts - this thread is now confusing with the last couple of posts making no sense nor providing any help. thread closed.
  13. HDD wrongly recognized as SSD

    This is a long, long running bug in the program. no official word on any sort of resolution. Weirdly, the issue for me at least tends to come and go depending on the version so you could try a few older versions and see if you get lucky. old versions available from Filehippo. or just do an old fashioned low level format on that drive.
  14. Periodic Buzzing noise with PC powered off

    with the PC power cable pulled out from the chassis, does the noise still occur?
  15. ccleaner registration

    it's probably in the Registry.
