  1. Changes in v5.45 and your feedback

    Hi mta, Is that avatar colour change the equivalent of a black armband? I have noticed that Piriform staff are appearing in 'whos online' in a lot more than previously, 2 of them especially, but they're not posting anything on the forum. Maybe they are just monitoring the complaints? (or PM'ing members instead?)
  2. As said above v5.45 has been withdrawn and you should revert to v5.44 pending further developments.
  3. Sorry looks like I missunderstood you there. So you are saying that the "Summer Sale" Advertising pop-up that came in with v5.44 is opening IE11 if/when you click it, even though Firefox is your default browser. Or do you mean something else? I hadn't seen that reported before, but then again I don't think anyone has ever mentioned clicking on the offer before, just complaining that it won't go away. Is it realy a problem? If you are accepting the offer then it would only happen the once anyway. PS. UNIX (or more likley a LINUX variant these days) is not a browser, it's a whole different Operating System to Windows, I used to use it at work back in the 1980's/90's when Windows was just a baby. Unix/Linux is good, but of course the commands and available software is different to Windows. (Just like MacOS, or Android, is different from Windows). I have Opera mini on my phone for occasional use and am not realy a fan. Haven't tried the full Opera on a PC, I'm happy with Firefox.
  4. The Firefox/Mozilla Thread

    Can't mention any kind of competition by name on a company site, but take a look in Firefox add ons.
  5. That sounds like you still have IE set as your default browser. So when another programme calls for a browser IE will open automatically. You need to tell Windows to use your browser of choice as the default. You can do this in Windows settings or through your browser settings. Search for 'set default browser' in whichever search engine you do use.
  6. Which update is valid?

    v5.45 has been withdrawn because of multiple problems. v5.44 is the latest version now available to download and you should replace your v5.45 with it.
  7. CCleaner on Vista laptop

    Just for interest there is another way to get CCleaner to run in debug mode, especially if you are going to be using it frequently. Right click the CCleaner desktop icon and select 'Properties' On the 'Shortcut' tab add /debug to the Target, and 'Apply'. Now anytime you run CCleaner from that desktop icon it will run in debug mode. Don't forget that it will make a new logfile in C:\program files\ccleaner everytime you run it in debug mode. So take the /debug off again when you have finished debugging. I've created 2 desktop icons, one for normal mode and one for debug mode when I want it.
  8. Is that a website for lonely underground workers? (Sorry , couldn't resist it).
  9. Do you mean "Autofill" of forms on webpages? https://www.computerhope.com/jargon/a/autofill.htm CCleaner can clear "Autofill" information by selecting 'Saved Form Information' for your browser on CCleaners cleaning page. I suspect though that you mean "Autocomplete" of what you are typing into the search box? https://www.computerhope.com/jargon/a/autocomp.htm "Autocomplete" is a function of your browser/search engine and will need to be turned off there if you dont want it. It's a real time function so does not save anything to be cleaned.
  10. The Firefox/Mozilla Thread

    Aah, those last two words of the link - "privacy issues". Lots of software companies are having (unneeded) problems with those at the moment. It will calm down once they fully understand the new European regulations.
  11. The Firefox/Mozilla Thread

    ????? I'm sure Firefox already had the option to restore last session even after a shutdown/restart. Not something I would use, I have it set to always start a new session, but I'm sure the option was already there. Am I missing something here? PS. I've never had Windows restart on it's own.
  12. Unable disable monitoring in 5.45.6611

    Version 5.45 has been officially withdrawn, and you are advised to reinstall v5.44 (or an older version, some have gone back to 5.40). 5.44 is now the version on the piriform download site: https://www.ccleaner.com/ccleaner/builds 5.44 and older versions are also available on Filehippo: https://filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/
  13. There is often confusion over whether 12 noon, and 12 midnight, are am or pm. Not to mention 12:01 etc. (Linguistically 12 (noon or midnight) is neither am or pm, but that's a different can of worms). There are various conventions about it, but they all leave room for confusion or misinterpretation. With computers it's always best to use the 24 hour clock. (If the programme lets you, which any decent programme should). 00:00, 00:01 - midnight, just gone midnight. 12:00, 12:01 - noon, just gone noon. No scope for confusion.
  14. Choosing cookies to keep

    That screen is only for setting which cookies you want to keep, so that CCleaner will leave them alone. Once you have set your 'cookies to keep' you simply use the blue 'Run Cleaner' button on the main cleaning screen to clear the rest. This will clear all the cookies except those in the 'cookies to keep' list. (Plus anything else you have set to be cleared).
  15. speccy bug

    I note that winver is showing you have Windows 10 "Enterprise" edition, is this a company computer? Enterprise is used by medium/large organisations, and is (officially) only available through Microsoft's Volume Licencing programme. It is typically used when a company supplies devices to a 'mobile' or 'remote' workforce. Presumably this is a company computer, connected to a company network, managed by company IT/Admin? If something has suddenly changed it may well be that the company IT/Admin have changed it. I would suggest that you contact your IT department to ask if they have restricted access to something recently.
