  1. - Translation: Temeprature of the motherboard is too high: 144 degrees Celsius. - Perhaps you have running a number of programs that use up A LOT OF CPU (See e.g. Task Manager) ?

    Windows 11 ?

    - Frankly I am not surprised. A new version of Windows (11 ???) allows the developers to fix bugs that are deep in the kernel. It allows the developers to start from scratch instead of "patching up" the old kernel with all the risks.
  3. - I want to post a follow up on my post dated November 21, 2020. - It seems - I repeat - SEEMS (!!!) that when the user sorts the search results on "Fragments" that then the program code acts as if the user want to sort the search results on "Last Modified". In this regard "Fragments" doesn't sort on "fragments" at all !!! - The program code could contain a "Sort on fragments" sub-routine but then it seems this "sort on fragments" program code isn't used at all. - The good folks at CCleaner should examine the "Sort on Fragments" program code in detail to see what's REALLY going
  4. - Have run Defraggler to move a bunch of files towards the end of the C: drive. I was astonished to see that, after having finished the job, the program kept running with a very high CPU for about 50 (!!!!) minutes. I know that it can take DF a considerable amount of time to "wind down" but ~ 50 minutes is ridiculous, outrageous.
  5. - I also have seen those "nag screens / windows".
  6. - Question: In "Winapp2.ini" I see multiple times this "....\*\.... ". Does CC translate into "one (1) (sub-)directory" or does CC translate this as "multiple (sub-)folders" ? - Perhaps the following path can also be cleaned ( without catastrophic consequences) ? " C:\Users\<---- user --->\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Service Worker\CacheStorage\ "
  7. - Agree. "Edge Beta" is indeed covered by "Edge*".
  8. - To be honest: I only today came across these "Code caches". - But then there is still a discrepancy. CC reports that ~ 7.000 files are to be removed whereas I counted ~ 11.000 files in those "code caches" folders with Voidtools' "Everything". Odd, very odd. - I think I will continue to use "Custom Files & Folders" instead of those "Code Caches". - CC shows another discrepancy: When I select "Code caches" + "Custom Files and Folders" (for the same folders) then "Code caches" shows a different number of files (+ size) than "Custom Files and Folders". - But cleaning out
  9. - Selecting "Code Cache" did indeed work. Now CC reports that some 7000 files will be deleted.
  10. - I now see where I made a mistake.
  11. - I made 2 pictures of this: The 1st picture is with "Custom Files & Folders" but without both "Blobs". The 2nd picture is without "Custom Files & Folders" but with both "Blobs". There is another inconsistency. CC reports that in the 1st picture some 7.100 files will be deleted but in a previous post in this thread I reported that I found in all 3 chaches some 11.000 files.
  12. - I added those 3 lines (see a previous post, above) to "Include". - I did the following: A) Selected "Edge blob" (under "Edge Chromium") B) Selected "Google blob" (under "Google Chrome".) C) Un-selected "Custom files and folders". - Now CC doesn't show how much disk space it would free up as a result of these 3 choices. - But when I choose to reverse all 3 selections (A, B, C, see above) then CC will show the total amount of disk space that will be freed up (~ 400 MB). Seems CC doesn't count how much space can be freed up when those 2 blob opti
  13. - This is what I found in Winapp2.ini: FileKey11=%LocalAppData%\Google\Chrome*\User Data\*\Code Cache|*.*|RECURSE There are so many Asterisks (*) in this line that I wonder that it will / would work ....................
  14. - Thanks !!! - I use the default Winapp2.ini file and it seems these folders are not included in Winapp2.ini. - I did "some digging" and I found over 7.500 files in that folder (Chrome) and over 4.800 in a similar folder in MS Edge. The dates (modified) of those files went all the way back to 2019. That would assume that CC didn't clean those files or that I didn't select the right option(s) in CC. - The path in Chrome is: C:\Users\<user-name>\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Code Cache\Js But in Edge the path is: C:\Users\<user-name>\AppD
  15. - See the 2 pictures attached. -The 1st picture shows a bunch of Chrome related files that CC has found and can be removed (safely). - The 2nd picture shows a list from Defraggler. These files are related to Chrome as well. The files - as shown by DF - are in the sub-folder called "...... \Code cache\..... ". Based on the word "code cache" I draw the conclusion that these files are temporary files as well and can be removed by CC as well. But these files (in ".... \code cache\.... " don't show up in CC. Does anyone know if can safely remove those files (in ".....\code cache\.... ") a
