  1. That's why if anything like finances, tax documents, etc., that someone doesn't want anyone else to recover off a sold PC it's best to just replace the drive with a brand new unit, for example a 120-128GB budget SATA SSD for the OS drive (they go for $20 USD or less at the moment from good brand names like ADATA, Kingston, SP Silicon Power, TeamGroup, etc.,) for the OS and the PC will seem fast which can help sale it easier. A cheap 120-128GB budget SSD is at least half the price of a brand new 1TB HDD so let whoever buys the PC replace that drive with a capacity they want.
  2. According to Norton Safe Web it's safe: https://safeweb.norton.com/report/show?url=unsplash.com
  3. You can stop many of the adserver kind with a HOSTS file, such as the MVPS HOSTS File, and of course with an ad blocking browser add-on/extension such as uBlock Origin for Chrome .
  4. Try running CCleaner as an administrator if you haven't tried that yet. The devs need to look into all the failed installs and inability to run CCleaner!
  5. You replied to a question from Feb 2019. Topic closed.
  6. Maybe RAM+Virtual Memory related, but it's only obvious if Windows gives a pop-up warning about it. I've seen a similar sounding behavior before on very rare occasions using other defrag software but not Defraggler though, and not in Windows 10. It was caused by doing a full scan with an antivirus while I also was using a too small custom pagefile size instead of letting the system manage it on its own. Sometimes simply shutting down the PC and then turning it on might fix it, especially if the PC hasn't been shut down or rebooted in a long time.
  7. If you have access to another computer that isn't a Windows 10 computer give it a try on that - that would be one way to determine if the Firewire drive still works and isn't just some Windows 10 compatibility issue.
  8. Here's Microsoft's policy on registry cleaning Windows: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2563254/microsoft-support-policy-for-the-use-of-registry-cleaning-utilities Short answer don't use registry cleaners, and especially don't clean the Windows 10 registry because Windows 10 is being actively updated regularly and changing.
  9. Use Custom Clean instead. Custom Clean works how older versions of CCleaner used to always work where you can configure exactly what you want done, however it will not look for any updates for other software.
  10. See #3 and #4 on this page (https://www.audiorecording.me/how-to-troubleshoot-firewire-connection-in-windows-ieee-1394.html), you have to enable it in the BIOS.
  11. For that "IEEE 1394 host controllers" driver you can open Device Manager and see if the drivers did actually install for it. The only thing I'd question is if Windows 10 is actually compatible with it, or not. Here's a search, some links are to people having issues with devices not showing up: https://duckduckgo.com/?t=ffab&q=firewire+windows+10+compatibility
  12. I've only seen them once (perhaps twice) download via Automatic Updates in Windows 10, all others are installed by software during setup that may need to install a specific version. Other than that if you want to keep them updated it's a manual download and then install. I personally don't manually update them.
  13. You'd probably have to use some clone of Firefox that another team develops to get what you want (as an example I use SRWare Iron instead of Google Chrome). Search engines are probably big money for web browsers.
  14. There's a time limit now to help stop spamming since they often come back and edit in their spam links.
  15. To me at first glance it looks like Firefox is protecting itself from unauthorized outside modification and tinkering, and I'd say kudos to Mozilla for building it that way - if that's what's actually happening.
  16. Already been reported multiple times: https://community.ccleaner.com/topic/59202-ccleaner-duplicates-all-items-on-selection-window/
  17. Would be interesting if you answered Nergal's question: is this new edge or legacy edge? Legacy version = Originally installed with Win10. New version (a Chrome/Chromium build) = Downloaded manually, or through the offer in the Start Menu/Tiles, or through Windows Updates. The legacy version that originally installed with Win10 needed a workaround in CCleaner in order to be properly cleaned. Supposedly newer versions of CCleaner will prompt to allow it to enable the workaround. Even with the workaround enabled sometimes the legacy version causes CCleaner to take a long time to clea
  18. That's because the "portable.dat" dummy file mentioned above your post is not complete. It has to have this, and only this inside it, and then save it: #PORTABLE#
  19. It's just cosmetic! Sometimes if closing CCleaner and then re-opening it doesn't happen the second time. It's intermittent but repeatable. We need them to open a bank, so they double our deposited amount.
  20. Possibly because I reported it to the MVPS author! uBlock Origin is also now able to update MVPS Host File.
  21. Currently secure connection on MVPS.org HOSTS File fails, it works in-secure at: http://winhelp2002.mvps.org/hosts.htm That's possibly why it has also been failing to update in uBlock Origin for a day now.
  22. With Win10 I often see in Task Manager (near the bottom of the list) two instances of Explorer running and other times I don't. So maybe after I've just ran CCleaner it's closing one instance that isn't for what's seen on screen but is instead doing something else. Another tool, BleachBit when deleting thumbnail cache it uses TaskKill ("C:\Windows\System32\taskkill.exe"), and on XP it's obvious it's restarting Explorer, I haven't tried to have it delete thumbnail cache on Win10 yet though since it's built into Windows Disk Cleanup.
  23. You probably need to run your script (or the program that runs the script) with administrator privileges if it's for instance Windows 10. -------- As to what CCleaner does "under the hood," it's highly unlikely they'll give such details since it's closed source even though they offer a freeware version -- but that doesn't mean free software or open source software.
  24. SpeedOut License: Freeware Supports: Microsoft Windows 2000, XP, Vista. Also works on Windows 10 v1909 without any issues. 100% Portable: Doesn't create any additional files or any Window registry data.

    Yeah, it's the same month that Steve Irwin "The Crocodile Hunter" passed in 2006.
