  1. To continue upon what Hazelnut has mentioned: The position of the accept and decline buttons are very deceptively placed, and I'd reckon they're fully aware of it.
  2. Seems like all those OEM tools at some point are prone to it. When they stop feeding the system updates they aren't really worth having installed anymore anyway, and some seem more like spyware anyways.
  3. No warning needed just force the entering of a Captcha. The Captcha alone will make everyone flee in fear.
  4. Even portable versions of browsers like the Chrome/Chromium based variety will create some registry data, but it's not a whole set of settings like an installed version would create throughout the registry. Occasionally depending upon how a portable version was closed, or crashed it can leave behind AppData and ProgramData, usually if it's the PortableApps.com version those remnants will usually get removed the next time it's successfully closed, i.e.; no crashing. Different browser but worth mentioning: I've seen with Firefox Portable that some things can linger in ProgramData for instance when Firefox Portable automatically checks for an update when using "About Firefox", even though it can't actually update that way. ------ Note: On Win10 there's already a Google\Chrome entry in the registry by default for Windows Security that's locked to possibly prevent deletion and tampering. I don't know if Win10 or Windows Security will auto re-create it or not if you found a way to delete it. These are the default values if you wish to restore them: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Google] [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Google\Chrome] [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Google\Chrome\NativeMessagingHosts] [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Google\Chrome\NativeMessagingHosts\com.microsoft.browsercore] @="C:\\Program Files\\Windows Security\\BrowserCore\\manifest.json"
  5. It cleans .log files located in this path: %CommonAppData%\Microsoft\Search|*.log|RECURSE Which is the same path as (on Win10): C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Search
  6. Now, today, when posting a reply it looks like it never posts it since it just sits in the edit window where we submit reply. However opening the topic in another tab shows that it was successful. Might result into some double-posting.
  7. I only use an offline account too. When I used SMalik's revised [Activity History *] cleaner I had to stop both of these services for it to work (full names as seen in Services): * Connected Devices Platform Service * Connected Devices Platform User Service_48409 I wonder if it's safe to just disable those two services, or not? Edit: I'll answer my own question. It cannot be left disabled because it screws with things like Win10's Night Light, and who knows what else that's tied into it, so I won't even bother cleaning Activity History again.
  8. If you haven't rebooted in a while give that a try first. You could go into Disk Management (it's built into Windows) and make sure that drive has a drive letter associated with it - maybe it's as simple as giving it a drive letter. But be forewarned if you delete the partition or format in Disk Management it will likely make recovering anything on the drive impossible. Instructions here are for Windows 10 but might also be similar for previous versions of Windows: https://www.techrepublic.com/article/how-to-assign-a-drive-letter-in-windows-10/
  9. Thumbnails in many cleaning tools are usually deleted, or can be selected to be deleted (even Windows built-in Disk Cleanup can delete them if selected), and with you being a photographer that creates a problem. Personally I'd have a separate partition or secondary disk drive just for the storing of photos that can survive even a format of the OS drive letter such as during reinstalling Windows, etc. Although it's vital to have relatively recent external backups on a portable HDD or SSD that can have a compressed disk image (like a weekly backup), and/or mirrored copies (daily backups) of your important work files.
  10. Yes! Personally I'd install the upgrade to Trend Micro which for some has fixed the issue with it blocking CCleaner - then in that scenario there'd be no need to have an exception/white list for it.
  11. Instructions: 1. Open Recuva. 2. In the main interface click: Options > Actions (tab) > Enable/Tick: Restore folder structure
  12. It's possibly due to the cookie for the website being deleted. If you log into websites such as Pinterest your settings "may get restored" assuming they keep such user settings on their end to reload them.
  13. I thought the reasoning was because of increasing screen size/resolution.
  14. You can always wait a few days since that gives antivirus vendors time to update their detection (usually 48-72 hours) - and it also affords you a time-gap if a new version has other issues such as being buggy.
  15. Some sites are just really slow, should be expected though. Disconnection in online games is nothing new, happens regular enough during normal circumstances however playing the games when most people are asleep in your country/time-zone is a good solution to avoid disconnection.
