  1. I got same error last week when I was still on Win10 Home v1909, it wouldn't update at all due to corruption but I didn't bother because I soon upgraded to Win10 Home v20H2. I also got a similar error in Win10 Home v20H2 when Edge Chromium had an update, but on that occasion it had some text stating to try again in a few hours or something along those lines. I simply rebooted, tried again, and it installed without any issue. Note that I use that Edge Update cleaner, however I don't know if it's causing the issue or not. Perhaps it needs to be investigated and tested.
  2. For an SSD using Windows built in Trim function should work. There are SSDs sold have a security feature such as some Kingston SSDs, etc., although enabling such as feature might detail having to reinstall the OS.
  3. Yeah, storage drives that have personal files on it are a very grey area for allot of us to do a warranty claim on. It might be a different thing if SSDs were still very expensive even for small capacity sizes but that's not an issue anymore.
  4. Some manufacturers have did that before. For example ADATA has or had an SSD that was sold on Amazon.com that was exclusively sold in the U.S.A.
  5. Vice-versa it does, where an SSD is identified as an HDD. I have an two external SSDs formatted as FAT32 (the file system is the culprit) and Windows 10 Home v20H2 (and previous builds) always detects both of them as a Hard Disk Drive. If the drives are formatted using NTFS (which Windows only allows and forces, although it's easy to get around using a myriad of free 3rd party disk partition tools) they will be properly detected as SSDs. I only use FAT32 on two of my external SSDs for compatibility with other hardware (game consoles) that requires it though, so no way around not usin
  6. That almost sounds like making them a non-admin Windows user account. But of course CCleaner would need to Hide (preferably) or at the very least Disable and grey out the feature.
  7. See if this works instead: Options > Advanced > Save all settings to INI file It will create a ccleaner.ini file in the folder where CCleaner is installed.
  8. Include the ability to create Custom Locations for non-standard web browsers via the CCleaner GUI. It could be something as simple as a Browse button to find the browser Profile folder, that way there wouldn't be any need to edit ccleaner.ini or the Windows registry.
  9. Kaspersky has a large list of programs that they deem incompatible with their antivirus solution. Sometimes it's caused by the antivirus being out-of-date, that was the case awhile ago with Trend Micro where the users had to manually download the newest antivirus version and install it from the publisher website because it wasn't upgrading the installed version itself.
  10. Maybe the easiest route is by using the Custom Location that Nukecad already linked to here. It's easy to configure, although Waterfox will be listed as Firefox in CCleaner. Example: CustomLocation1=FIREFOX|C:\PortableApps\FirefoxPortableESR\Data\profile
  11. My mother uses it, and of course her email was compromised via the https://haveibeenpwned.com link you provided. Probably why she also gets so much spam in her Hotmail, so much it looks entirely unusable.
  12. Example (when using CCleaner Portable, or when CCleaner is installed to save settings to ccleaner.ini instead of using the Registry): CustomLocation1=FIREFOX|C:\PortableApps\FirefoxPortableESR\Data\profile CustomLocation2=CHROME|F:\PortableApps\IronPortable\Profile
  13. In older versions of Windows doing some Windows Updates would leave numbered/lettered folders behind like that, even if those updates installed successfully. I don't know if Win10 has that issue or not, although I've never seen it happen since using it.
  14. Random named leftovers like that in the root directory = No It would have to be coded to look for specific folder names, like how the community winapp2.ini file will clean out the C:\Config.msi folder. But if the folder names are random and not placed into a known system folder such as "C:\Windows\Temp" it's a losing battle.
