  1. Blast from the past

    Hi, 1984. Yep, time flies. Good to know you're OK.
  2. No infection in any of the portable versions listed in this topic so far. I downloaded & checked them all. The 555 zip file does show a false positive, but none of the files extracted from it do. I suggest that the OP begin posting the hash values in code tags instead of pictures so it is easier to be sure we are all talking about the same file. No way am I going to try to manually type all those hashes & verify them, don't have time. But it would be simple to copy and search for the text string. For example, VT shows the hash for the portable CCleaner 64 exe extracted from ver. 555 as this: SHA-256 e482637cbad141b517ac6f27ceff8cf04e36a92c51c00ea29c1d2c0119a74782 It's easy to copy and check that hash in several ways, both here and at VT.
  3. You guys are probably way ahead of me, but just for my satisfaction I checked this out. I just downloaded the 553 slim version from major geeks (no longer available at the builds link) and sent it to VT. It has the same hashes as the 553 version mentioned here. 553 slim version analyzes clean. Some of the detections here and at VT are for the zip file & the installer exe, not the slim. Fwiw, The user named billy AKA billy bob made those comments, and also included the incorrect download link that nergal noticed. There are links to download a file called CCleaner_Rus_Setup from 2 different sites. See here. Didn't need to sign in. https://www.virustotal.com/en/user/billy/
  4. My sincere condolences to a trusted old friend.

    Opened one one time that had so much cat hair you couldn't see some of the parts. But it was not crashing because of heat. Told the owner that professional help would be needed.

    Bless you for helping out like that.

    Palebushman, my family's computers use win 8.1 or win 10. I don't have time to keep them tuned up, so that seems to make win 10 the best choice.
  7. My sincere condolences to a trusted old friend.

    Yes, good firewall, but the main protections are Sandboxie, Powershadow, and backup software. These have been attacked more than once and have not failed, except once when I caused it myself (I think). But it isn't easy. It's like my ancient car; I can drive it legally and safely but new kids probably should not try. I hope use win 7 the same way. This xp computer will most likely go over to some sort of run-in-ram Linux distro. But to the main point, Ccleaner & Avast are OK here. Both have changed since the merger, but I'll live with it.

    Not even close to guru status, but fwiw I've stayed with one of the older versions set to manual update. Also staying with avast set same way. Both work fine here on xp.
  9. VFEmail service destroyed by hacker

    Inside job? More to this than meets the eye.
  10. Internet Explorer 11 update(s)

    Thanks, nukecad. I will soon start using as my main OS the latest obsolete version of windows, win 7. So I just have to install the last cumulative security only update for ie 11, right?
  11. Internet Explorer 11 update(s)

    It it correct that the latest IE 11 security only update will bring IE 11 up to date including all the earlier fixes? Is that what "cumulative" means in reference to IE 11 security only updates ? Asking because I wish to limit the number of files I must copy & save on the win 7 desktop. Thanks.
  12. More Tracking and Data Gathering?

    I'm staying w/ Avast, only fair to report that here. I looked around a bit and Avast is still my choice. It is a good AV, works well on xp and w7. I realize that the worlds IT security community is NOT hanging on my every word, but fair is fair. Mustn't leave the wrong impression I still maintain that those popup behaviors described earlier are a terrible idea. The warning is true enough, but their purpose seems to be scaring the user into upgrading. For me they are annoying, for many they would be frightening.
  13. cookie removal

    Maybe I am reading this wrongly, but quoting from your first post: " . . . I ran CCleaner telling it to only remove cookies from Chrome (the browser I use to get in to the bank), then tried to login to the bank again. They wanted the code to let me in. Obviously CCleaner is removing the bank's cookie even though it has been told not to . . . ". It reads as if you told ccleaner to remove cookies from chrome, the browser you use for the bank. In any case, good for the bank, they seem to be watching after you. Also, fwiw, some banks have the option to send a code to a prearranged email account or a text to a prearranged phone. That is very handy. You might ask if they have that.
  14. Season's Greetings

    Hope you all enjoy the holidays. Merry Christmas and may God bless.
