  1. New Version Says I Have A Browser I Don't Have

    Final post regarding this issue (I think). That did the trick! After I deleted those leftover registry entries pertaining to Opera, uninstalled CCleaner, rebooted my laptop and then reinstalled CCleaner, it now shows no sign of the Opera browser. And it accurately shows the browsers that I actually do have installed. So all is well for now. Thanks again to all for the help!
  2. Downloaded the new version of CCleaner 5.57 with no problems as usual. However I noticed when I ran it for the first time, it said I had, besides the usual Windows 10 browsers, that I had Chrome, Firefox, both of which are true, BUT it also said I had the Opera browser and tried to go through the cleaning process for that browser. Pretty slick because I used to have Opera installed on my computer, but uninstalled it awhile ago. So I thought maybe CCleaner is still recognizing it from when it was installed. So I uninstalled CCleaner, rebooted my computer and then reinstalled CCleaner again. Opened CCleaner again, and it still thinks I have opera installed! I used a reputable uninstall program (Revo Uninstaller) to uninstall Opera that I have used for a long time and it does a good job of completely uninstalling programs, including registry files and leftover system files. So I don't know why CCleaner still thinks I have Opera installed, but it keeps trying to clean it when I run it. Any suggestions? Thanks.
  3. New Version Says I Have A Browser I Don't Have

    Thanks to all, especially nukecad and trium. Found some leftovers in the Registry Editor under HKEY CURRENT USER ->SOFTWARE. Will uninstall CCleaner, reboot and then reinstall CCleaner and see what happens! Hopefully that will solve the problem. If I still have problems, might try the suggestion tp reinstall Opera and let Windows 10 uninstaller do its thing and see if I get better results. Will let you all know. Thanks again!
  4. CCleaner v5.55 Surprise!!!

    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 Now the catch that they don't tell you is once you click on the link to see what program is out of date, a box opens up...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.
  5. 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!
  6. 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.
  7. CCleaner v5.55 Surprise!!!

    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.
