  1. Is there a free version of 5.43 portable available anywhere? I can't find one. thanks
  2. I don't know about using the installer, but I use the portable version, and it works normally. No problems.
  3. "Skip User Account control warning" is selected, but not working for me in the latest portable version 5.35.6210. Perhaps I have done something wrong, but I followed the same straightforward unzip update routine as in the past which has always been successful. I like to revert to the previous version until this is resolved, but a search for one came up empty. Thanks
  4. Long task cycles

    I don't use any secure deletion. As best as I can tell, I have it on the simplest setting, as I always have I'll try wiggling the mouse, but its not that it doesnt close after finishing because when I hover over the systay icon, it's shows 26%, and never changes unless I just wait it out to the finish (or open the ccleaner interface), whereupon it it jumps to 100% I know with 100% certainty that there is no AV conflict.
  5. Long task cycles

    I'd really appreciaye it if someone would at least speculate a solution here. How do you explain CCleaner taking literally 20 times as long to clear my recycle bin as the recycle bin "Empty Recyle Bin" button. If I open CCleaner and run it internally, it is consideralbly faster. NIght and day. The time consumed for both methods does relate to the contents of the recycle bin, but the Windows default "Empty Recyle Bin" button method never takes very long, no matter how full the bin is. There is no exaggeration. My descriptions are accurate. My OS installation is clean and fresh, stripped down and built for speed. The CCleaner method, especially from the context menu "Run Cleaner" button is exponentially slower. CCleaner is the only area right now where I'm experience a distinct or unexpected lack of performance. There is no fiewall or virus software conflict. I've used and appreciated CCleaner for a long time, because It didnt always act like this. It behaves like it is doing multiple passes. If it is I need to now how to stop it. Sorry, but I'm really disppointed at the response here. I think I've come up with enough information to continue the discussion.
  6. Long task cycles

    CCleaner Slim 4.17.4808, XP SP3, Firefox 32 and 33b, but I dont have ccleaner involved in any browser cleaning...in fact as far as "Run CCleaner" tasks are concerned, i really dont have it do much more than the minimum; clearing temp files, my recycle bin a few other small tasks. I am a long time user of CCleaner. I use CCleaner on a daily basis, usually several times. I was using CCleaner 4.16, but I just changed to "Slim" to see if it would help. It seemed better when the recycle bin is not real full, but I just tested it with about 4g in the recycle bin. I waited and waited while the tray icon showed it was working, but after a time when I realized it was taking far too long as usual, I opened CCleaner and the task almost immediately completed, which is pretty typical (sorry I forgot to mention this aspect before); once I open the CCleaner interface, thiings usually go faster and smoother...initially it is stuck around 14%, but in a few seconds if not immediately it get going and wipes things clean, like you would expect it to always operate...like it operated in the past
  7. Long task cycles

    For a while now I have noticed that ccleaner is taking an excessively long time to do complete a task, especially when part of the job is emptying the recycle bin. I am not interested in taking multiple passes to erase things...I just want everything deleted as quickly as possible. I have tried to adjust the settings accordingly, but it makes no difference. I can manually empty the recycle bin far faster than ccleaner currently does it for me. I dont remember it always being this way. Am I wrong?
