  1. CCleaner v5.55 Surprise!!!

    I don't see any "No Thanks" message as described above by Ben from Piriform. I think nukecad's first message above is correct. They have followed suite with many other software providers. Advertised as "Free Edition", but let's see if we can get them to buy something. There are plenty of other programs out there that do what CCleaner does. I guess if Piriform keeps messing around, I'll just move along and find another program to clean up my PC after a session.

    TorrentG, I agree 100%! Makes no sense to me either. I've seen other software companies play this game, but never Piriform. It really surprised me when this popped up and then to design it in such a way that you can't get rid of the pop up box once it opens? That's just low. Oh well, they keep playing these games and they will get a reputation and people will look elsewhere.

    Well it seems Piriform put a little surprise in version 5.55 of CCleaner. It's an Updater. It tells you if any of your programs need updating and offers to do it for you. Now the catch that they don't tell you is once you click on the link to see what program is out of date, a box opens up... and tells you how much you have to PAY for the Updater Program. And the box won't close until you click on the link to start the payment process. Isn't that a load of crap!? I can't figure out how to close the box and get back to the CCleaner, so I just did a hard reboot, shut my computer down and restarted it. I can't believe Piriform has stooped to this level.
  4. I don't know why Piriform doesn't fix this; they have been told by a number of people what the problem is. If you try to install a new version and get the Abort Retry Ignore popup box, close everything, open your Task Manager, and End any task still running that has to do with CCleaner. Then try to install the new version again. Should work! Piriform....FIX IT!
