  2. I have the new Edge Chrome installed on this laptop but it doesn't start at boot, it doesn't even appear in the Startup apps (or in Task Manager Start-up tab). You may also have it as a shortcut in your StartUp folder, in which case it would still start even when disabled in Startup apps. Any app that you put a shortcut for in that folder will run at startup, regardless of the other startup settings. Try a read of this: https://kb.iu.edu/d/adlf Another question - Is your Edge Chrome the latest version, 83.0.478.37, which was released last week? It's being rolled out slowly so you might not have it yet. As it was only fully released last week then CCleaner may not be up to date for this new Edge version yet. PS. To manually update Edge Chrome go to Settings>Apps and click on Microsoft Edge and then Modify. Edge 83 info: https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/microsoft/microsoft-edge-83-released-with-extension-sync-and-auto-profiles/ Restoring the whole system is a bit drastic, although if nothing else is solving the issue it may be an idea to uninstall/reinstall Edge Chrome. (Note if you uninstall Edge Chrome then old Edge will be re-enabled until you install Edge Chrome again).
  3. Sorry, I didn't talk about the slowness which is your main issue. Here are few things to look at: When CC browser is running how much CPU percentage does task manager say it is using overall? (see below). Are you only seeing a slowdown when using CCleaner browser? What is the speed like if you Close CC browser then open exactly the same webpages in 'old' Edge or the new Edge Chromium? (If you have those on your Win 7) or Internet Explorer? How much of the CPU are they using? With CCleaner browser closed check the task manager to see if something else is using a lot of CPU or disk access. Many things can cause a computer to run slowly, for example: Webpages with lots of video or frequently updated content can slow things down. A slow internet connection for some reason. Something running in the background. (You AV or Windows Defender running a background scan, Windows Update, Windows Defragmenter, etc.,etc.). Not forgetting the age of the computer itself, programmers can tend to use all the features of newer hardware and so older CPU's and graphic chips may struggle to run with newer apps. To give an example of how a particular webpage can slow things down- This is Firefox not CC browser, but it gives the idea and you can see here that as I was typing this it was using a total of 9.2% CPU in six processes. If I then open a new tab and start to play a video in Youtube Firefox will open another 2 processes and the CPU usage will jump up to 48.5%, it also starts accessing the internet to stream.
  4. Just download the free version from here https://www.ccleaner.com/ccleaner/download When installed just select ..Options..About.. and press the button at the top which says Upgrade to Pro Then just enter the details it asks for.
  5. I have updated CCCleaner on my computer. The update covered up to 3 machines. How do I get the update to this machine? It wants to charge me again! Both machines are in my name, same passwords etc.
  6. In a similar situation it helped me to restore the system to its previous state (we write about Windows as I assume).
  7. Good morning I specify that the price paid for the new data recovery software instead of Recuva PRO is € 146.69 + 22% VAT for a total of € 178.96 €
  8. Yes it is the new edge not the old edge. I just downloaded it 2 days ago and noticed it in my startup apps and it said it had a big effect on my startup. Not to repeat myself but when I shut it off in my startup apps and restarted it went right to the edge web page . The only way it stopped doing that was when I turned it back on in my startup apps. I don't know of any other way to turn it off.
  9. I believe that Microsoft can "tweak"/update Edge Chrome on a daily basis, so they may have changed something themselves? If it's in the startup apps then yes, that would mean it is starting up at boot. Just to be sure here - We are talking about the new Edge Chromium and not the old Edge aren't we? They are very different browsers 'under the hood'. If it's Edge Chrome then another thing to try is disabling any Extensions (add-ons) that you may have, and the seeing if CCleaner will clean it then. Some extensions can be set to continue running in the background when Edge Chrome itself is closed. (Or it could simply be a bad extension that isn't closing properly).
  10. Multiple processes showing in Task Manager are normal for a Chrome/Chromium browser. (and Firefox browser as well). Components are opened as separate processes so that if one, say a webpage or an extension, crashes then it doesn't crash the whole browser. Whether you see them all or just see one entry depends on if you have expanded the entry or not. See the screenshot in the first post here which shows the Chrome processes expanded: (If the list wasn't expanded it would just show the first line (with the arrow turned 90 degrees), ie. "> Google Chrome (33)" https://support.google.com/chrome/thread/2064254?hl=en (PS. CCleaner64.exe is the cleaner not the browser. It will be showing after a boot because you have 'Smart Cleaning' enabled).
  11. I used the browser then I reset it to it's default state so when I ran Ccleaner it said that it was forcing edge to close and it still skipped all edge components. I will try again and go into task manager. The part I don't understand is that it worked fine yesterday when I installed it. Is anyone else having this problem? I noticed that it was in my startup apps and the only way it would work correctly is if I left it in the startup. Doesn't that mean it is always on? Thanks
  12. The Pro and Free versions use exactly the same cleaning routines, so purchasing Pro will not make any difference to 'Skipping' a browser. If CCleaner is actually saying 'Skipped' then that indicates that the browser is still open, or that some component of it is still active in the background. CCleaner cannot clean a browser that is (partally) open. If you have closed the browser then you can check in Task Manager to see if (some part of) the browser is still active in the background, (and if so 'End Task' to fully close it).
  13. Sorry , 0double posted by accident. Are other people having the same problem? The reason I asked about the pro version is someone wrote a long time ago to open options then monitoring then untick the enable browser monitoring. I don't have those options on the free version. Could someone please tell me if other people are experiencing this same issue? It worked yesterday.
  14. Would it help if I bought ccleaner pro? Right now I am using the free version.
  15. Pro version isn't going to clean it any better! Possibly they need to update CCleaner to clean it as per usual they will always be playing catch up especially when it comes to Chrome/Chromium-based browsers.
  16. Since installing CCleaner Browser, really like it, except......slowed everything down markedly, on both computers installed on. Both are Windows 7 machines, one Pro, one Home. When starting up after cold start, I check Task Manager and find that in Processes, CCleaner64 appears, but not browser. When I open CCleanerBrowser, it opens CCleanerBrowser.exe multiple times (right now for instances, it shows 16 instances (in Processes), using a variety of memory sizes between 1,800 to 54 K + and everything between. Trust me, I didn't open Browser 16 times! In fact was careful to only open it once. The other computer, an older laptop, is virtually unusable if CCleanerBrowser is running at all. This computer, much newer is severly limited. In TaskManager under Applications it only shows up as running once. Thanks for the help.
  17. Would it help if I bought ccleaner pro? Right now I am using the free version.
  18. I installed it yesterday and Microsoft chromium worked fine. Ccleaner cleared all chromium boxes and now today it skipped all of Microsoft chromium. I went back in a second time and it did the same thing. What's wrong?
  19. Not sure it if applies in your case (I don't know if the Fires have a memory card), but a few years back I recovered photos from an old phone by popping out the memory card, sticking into my laptop (with an adapter) and Recuva recovered everything. If your device does not have a removable memory card, or the files you wanted to recover were on the device storage (and you don't have any sort of cloud sync enabled) then ...
  20. Yesterday
  21. Yes, CCleaner is fine, and the attack 3 years ago wasn't realy anything that affected any home, or small business, user. Analysis has shown that the trojan was actually highly targeted at 18 large IT corporations - think Microsoft, Intel, Google, Sony, Samsung, etc. It's now regarded that it was a State (government) Sponsored attempt to steal technology from those companies. Tthe State that did it had no interest at all in any other users. The first stage that got widely distributed did nothing except to check if it was on a machine at one of those companies. If it wasn't at one of those companies then it did nothing else at all. If it was at one of those companies then it 'phoned home' and tried to download a second stage, only 40 machines at those big companies worldwide actualy got that second stage delivered. Just 40 machines worldwide shows how highly specific it was. You can see a list of the companies that actually got the second stage (and more technical details) in this article from 2017: https://blog.avast.com/additional-information-regarding-the-recent-ccleaner-apt-security-incident If you do somehow manage to get a copy of the CCleaner version installer that was affected three years ago (which won't be easy to get hold of) then any Antivirus programme will recognise and quarantine it even though it is no longer regarded as any threat for a regular user.
