Intrusive CCleaner pop-up.

Recommended Posts

And the 'Summer Sale' pop-up is back on my laptop today.

I haven't changed any setting in either CC or Windows.

I did make a couple of manual Restore Points yesterday, and updated Firefox to v61 (which crashed and had to repair itself), but I don't see those being relevent.
I also ran scans with both Windows Defender and MB3.5, but again don't see why that should change anything.

I still use CCleaner, and Speccy both, but I went back to versions prior to the Avast buyout.

I'm now running CCleaner V-5.32 and Speccy V-1.29 (both pre-Avast versions) on Win 7, 32-bit and 64-bit computers.

I'm using the same version too, pre-Avast era! I had archived all of their freeware last year in July 2017 just in case... ...and just in case became very handy a few minutes ago!

Do note you'll have to keep bugs like this in mind using that old version:

In the popup click on the little paper pin symbol next to the x 

That should unpin it and stop it appearing again.

Sorry to say this does not work :(

I really don't need to see this pop up EVERY TIME I open the app....

After the fiftieth pop-up you will change your mind and embrace the deal. :)

  I started with Ccleaner shortly after win 98 was released, these folks have done remarkable work over the years. I am sorry to say goodbye, however no one has my permission to send me these advertisements. Piriform has become the problem, not the solution. 19 years, and you people can't even ask permission. Thanks for the help, but your site has become criminal.

Since when is asked permission for advertisements?

That would be a great improvement in our society!

The Pro version actually has an opt-out where you can disable "show offers for our other products".  It's under the Options\Privacy tab.  If I hadn't already owned it, I probably wouldn't have made the purchase with all the annoying pop-ups but since I already did own it, I went hunting for it. 

It works - no more pop-ups.:D

Pretty easy to modify that cookie. Kinda surprising nobody suggested that. Anyway, I got tired of the popups and dove in. You will see if you know what you're looking at. Problem solved.

I have the latest pro version 5.59.7230 and am getting the pop up trying to sell me the pro version!  The setting mentioned is unchecked as well!  Very annoying.......

Was that the summer sale? You may have got the offer for expired users - which was supposed to say why you were getting it but instead went out with the same content as for the free users.  DM me your serial key and/or registered email address and I'll check to make sure there's nothing else funny going on.

Yes summer sale.  Expired?  Is it not a lifetime license?  Mine was purchased years ago. I still have the disc and nowhere does it mention it's a subscription.
