  1. File shredder to CCleaner

    I am using Bitkiller, small portable program: https://sourceforge.net/projects/bitkiller/
  2. Hello, I still missing this function in CCleaner. There is secure delete for everything in options and wipe free space, but no file shredder for selected files and folders only. I dont need secure delete everything i have checked in CCleaner, also wipe free space heavily stress HDD. So with file shredder will be CCleaner complete. For now i must use another program to doing this.
  3. Software Updater in free version?

    Please remove this bloatware from free version. I always need to wait until CCleaner check for updates when I need use Tool tab. Or just move it lower in Tools tab to fix this delay. I know CCleaner is now owned by Avast so here must be tons of bloat and popups.
  4. Chrome .ldb files

    So what is wrong? Chrome should delete those files by self? Should i delete them or leave it? But i have still more those files.
  5. Chrome .ldb files

    Thank you for answer, but i dont know puprose of those files or if they can be deleted.
  6. Chrome .ldb files

    Hello, my default folder is now full of .ldb files. I dont know if is normal or not, but i have much more those files each time i look to this folder. Should it be cleaned?
  7. So strange, on virustotal Avira detect nothing. So any explanation from CCleaner?
  8. Use brain if possible, one unknown AV says Trojan, while other famous AVs detect nothing, that will be false positive for sure.
  9. Yes that is paradox. Program used from removing crap, is now crap by self. Adding new still runing process, previous version had Adware. Just like Avast which is Adware and Bloatware in one product.
  10. Is not bug at all, just Piriform need telemetry from everyone so is forced to enable it again if you disable it.
  11. I still dont understand why you block CCleaner in firewall. I want disable monitoring because is another still running process, which can cause longer system bootup etc. So if you let him already running, so there is no reason block it in firewall. It send useful data to Piriform which they can use for bug fixing. If you bloick it in firewall, your process run completely useless.
  12. Delete or disable is the same. But if you delete it, you cannot enable it again without reinstallation CCleaner.
  13. You probably not deleted CCleaner64.exe/Monitor, not disabled ccupdate task or you just forgot untick monitoring and tray icon in settings. Make sure you have also unchecked start CCleaner with PC startup. You can also rename CCupdate.exe to something else, but if you disable that task correctly, this is not needed. BTW this version is better for me, because now clean faster (No IE stuck anymore) and not caused any ESENT error yet, which was pretty common before this version.
  14. You probably doing something wrong. For me this working perfectly. The key of re-enabling is ccupdate task. So i if you disable it, it cannot enable monitoring again.
  15. Disable MONITOR on Windows Startup

    You have to open Windows (not CCleaner) Task Scheduler. This task is hidden but Task Scheduler shows hidden task by default.
