  1. Some nefarious variety could likely be used for mining. If antivirus is not detecting anything one way to sort of know something is going on is if the browser is using too many resources in the background for no apparent reason like when only one tab is open.
  2. If that drive uses SMR (Shingled Magnetic Recording) defragmenting an SMR drive can be exceptionally slow.
  3. It needs to have a file system, such as NTFS which the drive would've had by default. Of course there are other recovery tools if you search the Internet which can read and restore from an unformatted or RAW drive without a file system however those are often not freeware.
  4. Already discussed here: https://community.ccleaner.com/topic/59965-speechruntimeexe/ Topic closed.
  5. Then why make a topic for it! Already discussed here: https://community.ccleaner.com/topic/59965-speechruntimeexe/ Topic closed.
  6. Removing a registered web browser always has some caveats, and that's one of them. Even removing a 3rd party browser can end up with broken extensions like HTML if it was registered as the system default web browser. Often it can be fixed by having another browser register as the system default, but it doesn't always work. It's the sole reason I only use the portable version of 3rd party web browsers since I don't feel like correcting broken file extensions.
  7. Starting in 2014 I began inputting exclusions into CCleaner since it was impossible for me to figure out why it was removing the saved data of extensions in Chromium/Chrome based browsers (Comodo Dragon, SRWare Iron, etc.,) and what eventually worked was excluding the "Local Extension Settings" folder in the browser(s) profile folder. Obviously that's completely different from logins being removed, but it could potentially be a clue that perhaps input an exclusion ('Options > Exclude') of the exact folder where those settings are saved as a possible remedy and then test the results.
  8. With that article reporting 30K infections I doubt it was a merely "nice tap on the shoulder" just to get some attention without it actually being able to do something.
  9. One thing to try is this: https://community.ccleaner.com/topic/40285-ccleaner-not-deleting-google-chrome-history-fix/ May seem unrelated and old but can fix issues with CCleaner being unable to clean Google Chrome due to it being resident and running in the background.
  10. Something else too is if you actually like Avast they also have a Free version, although it won't have all of the features of a paid version. Although some people refuse to use a free antivirus for various reasons.
  11. It's interesting that so many still think MacOS is immune to malware.

  14. There's already an active topic about this located at: https://community.ccleaner.com/topic/59965-speechruntimeexe/ This topic is closed so as to not have multiple duplicates about the same exact thing.
  15. The registry has stuff in it that points to seemly nothing and even settings for something that isn't even installed, some of it is for compatibility in case something is installed at a later time. But not all of it gets flagged by registry cleaners (speaking registry cleaners in general not just the one in CCleaner). Edit: I've found out it's also related to WinSxS folder, and that alone is like a can of worms to even mess with.
