  1. ok, glad you got it sorted.
  2. hi Georg and welcome. but to clarify... the disk has 350GB capacity. 280GB free space. and contains 400GB of data. I want to see that pie chart - fire up File Explorer, right click that drive and select Properties. attached a Snip of that screen and attach it here. doesn't matter how highly compressed that drive is, you still can't fit a square peg into a round hole.
  3. nah, can't see it myself, there are simply too many other products out there that actually work.
  4. New Microsoft Office Icons

    What doesn’t help?
  5. welcome to the forums. I wouldn't hold your breathe sadly. hasn't been a Speccy release for some time and when there was it caused all manner of issues (and if memory serves, it was even pulled until a 3rd party software component, CPU-Z brought out a new release) personally, I believe all Piriforms products except CCleaner have even been abandoned or at least moth-balled while they ignore current bugs and prioritise new, unwanted features. if only an Admin would offer some insight....

    one can only assume that Speccy has been abandoned. the other conclusion is the developers (both of them) have been too busy with the new, software updater feature of CCleaner.
  7. you'll find previous versions on FileHippo.
  8. How to use C Cleaner for £15?

    g'day Anne and welcome to the forum. so where are you up to? have you downloaded and installed CCleaner? where did you get it from? what version of Windows do you have? if you have downloaded and installed it, go to Start and you should see it in the list of programs. click CCleaner to start it and once it starts, you simply click Run Cleaner in the bottom right corner and let it do its thing with the default settings.
  9. Delete

    Good news on sorting it out.
  10. g'day Aki and welcome. yep, you are seeing a long running bug, also happens in Windows. would have to be around 2 years old now so don't expect too much in an official response or fix.
  11. The Wrong Temperature Thread

    g'day Stu and welcome to the forum, "what causes this bug?" - DAMN Stu, you ask the hard questions don't you? with complete lack of answers, despite repeated attempt by us Mods and implied by each and every post in this thread, no one knows. 'why so hard to fix?' - well, you can only assume it's nigh on impossible, or their care factor is zero or the Devs have been told to relegate it so low as they deliver very important, necessary features like pop-ups, licensing checks and beta features like software versioning checks no-one saw coming. (yep, that was sarcasm) there's nothing like something new and sparkly to divert one's attention I guess.
  12. Delete

    you should find it in your browser's list of add-ons/extensions.
  13. [RESOLVED] Slow launch

    OK, let's agree to disagree and move on. glad you sort the issue out yourself then.
  14. [RESOLVED] Slow launch

    ummm.... a solution I think is what was offered.
  15. [RESOLVED] Slow launch

    as was offered about 15 posts up!
  16. yeah, sorry, can't explain that. so it actually has 8GB, two separate programs support that. but at least Speccy is really only passing on what it's finding out for itself. if Speccy is using that AdapterRAM field, then it's obviously either the wrong field or some multiplier needs to be factored in based on some other info Speccy is missing.
  17. no sweat, and welcome to the forums.
  18. wasn't Samsung TV's the ones with the issue a few years ago where the in-built mic or camera was able to be hacked and remotely accessed?
  19. igfx files are from your integrated graphics card. right click them and add to the exclude list. FYI, official word on reg cleaning in general; https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2563254/microsoft-support-policy-for-the-use-of-registry-cleaning-utilities
  20. My sincere condolences to a trusted old friend.

    same as nukecad. between my own Batch/PowerShell script and the inbuilt cleanmgr utility, I've long stopped using CC for maintenance. my main use of CC now is it's Uninstall feature - very handy in removing those Win10 Store apps. I've got PowerShell commands to remove them but at this stage CC does a better job. My currently installed v5.40 will be my last.
  21. Speccy identified my CPU wrong

    maybe Speccy is simply passing on what is in the firmware. start an elevate command prompt and type in wmic cpu list brief and see what it thinks your CPU is.
  22. generally Devs and Admins hardly chime in unless requesting further info for bug fixes. but otherwise, I concur with all that has been said. reg cleaning is just not needed, add to that the ever moving goal posts that are Windows 10, and any reg cleaning via 3rd party software is a ticking time bomb.
  23. sadly, the explanation is, there is none. the wrong reporting of SSD's as HDD's and HDD's as SSD's is in both CCleaner and Defraggler, has been for many versions, and there is no resolution.
  24. why do you ban people for saying "bump"

    if you want to move on and remove the chip from your shoulder, maybe we can address your problem. All I'm seeing (again) is useless posts that add nothing to the conversation.
  25. Ccleaner taking a very very long time to run

    @rob, what version of CC do you have? as you have been a user for many years, you would have noticed all the changes over that time, for better or worse. personally, I've stayed on v5.40 until Microsoft flags it as incompatible with Win10.
