  1. CCleaner always has to shut down Chrome

    Sometimes or most of the time.... Chrome runs in the background as a task, Microsoft Edge does the same thing too. I just let CCleaner do it's thing, but that's just me.
  2. RIP Edge browser?

    I don't think they could get their own browser engine to function with the speed and features of the other browser so why not go with the best (so to speak). This is a win, win for everyone. A independent browser that doesn't rely on the core Windows ecosystem (yet) and Microsoft is even submitting code to improve the browser.
  3. New Microsoft Office Icons

    What do you think about the new Office Icons? Full Story
  4. 4 day wait on priority support?

    Will forward it to an Admin.
  5. new software

    If you bought CCleaner Professional. You can contact them directly for priority support at https://www.ccleaner.com/support
  6. Imagine $9.99 or £7 per channel. Even more than that for some. Cable will have to increase it's cost every year, I figured because of the streaming of channels. You will have to pick and choose what few channels you want. But, what about data caps on your internet? That does need to go away.
  7. Stop trying to force Google Chrome on users

    When installing anything, always read it before hitting Next. You could also just download the slim build. http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/builds
  8. The end for MS Paint

    Never used it really, ever....
  9. This app can't run on this pc

    You need to download the latest version of CCleaner and the issue will go away. http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download
  10. System restore?

    It's always good to backup your whole system. I do it once every two weeks, but that is just me. I have never had any issues with the Registry Cleaner, but I have a default system. I don't have any custom system folder locations, or any different locations for anything major. Just create a system restore point and backup the registry when asked during cleaning (you just never know). If you run into any issues, feel free to post here.
  11. Speccy, Trojan/Virus Warning

    There is a chance when downloading the latest version of Speccy that your anti-virus program will flag the installer for Speccy to contain a Trojan, and/or a Virus. This is a what we call a "false positive". Meaning that there is actually not a virus inside the program. It's usually caused by the Google bundle that is inside the setup file. The issue is usually fixed within 24 hours. There is some thing you can do to fix the problem too. If you receive a Trojan/Virus warning when trying to install Speccy, please report this "false positive" to the company in which makes the anti-virus program you use. Thank you for using Speccy!

You can also wait a few days until the Slim build is released (it doesn't contain the Google bundle). Thank you for using CCleaner!
  15. It doesn't contain any Trojans or viruses. It could be a false positive or it could be detecting Google Chrome install option. This happens with almost every release.
  16. How To Use Recuva To Recover Files

    Have you tried running CHKDSK by any chance?
  17. Chrome history not being cleaned

    CCleaner is not deleting Google Chrome History? There are a few workarounds to fix the problem. There is not a problem with CCleaner, it's because Google Chrome is cloud based. #1) Chrome is synced to your Google account. Therefore all browsing information is stored there and won't be cleaned. You can either disable History from the Chrome sync settings, or stop syncing. Go to Menu, Settings, Sign in. This will fix the problem most of the time. There is another workaround, if for some reason the above does not work. #2) When a process associated with Google Chrome is running during the cleaning operation. All internet browsers need to be closed in order for them to be cleaned properly by CCleaner. *There is a setting in Chrome that allows background applications to run after Chrome has already been closed. Go to Menu, Settings, Show advanced settings... uncheck "Continue running background apps when Google Chrome is closed". Hopefully this will fix the problem!
  18. Any help would be appreciated

    You would need an external hard drive enclosure. If it's really old, it would be IDE.
  19. BitDefender's Antimalware is blocking download

    Try downloading from here: https://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download/standard
  20. If you formatted the drive and then installed Windows 8.1 again. I don't think you will be able to recover anything, the files have been overwritten all ready.
  21. Win 10 Creator Edition (1703)

    They are aware of the issue. If we get any news, we will be sure to let everyone know.
  22. updating Ccleaner

    Just download the latest version from here: http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download/professional Then put in your serial number.
  23. Winapp2.ini additions

    I can't really remember how I use to keep track of the winapp2.ini back in the day, but I think I did use the date. The year first does work better, that way you can look at the last few numbers and see if it has changed or not.
