  1. You're absolutely 100% correct! It should be built into CCleaner to do it for end-users. And the manual way of adding in the "fix" is about one year old now. In the meantime there is a ZIP download from a few months back in another topic (the ZIP download makes it easy to fix with simple instructions and no registry editing knowledge is required): https://forum.piriform.com/topic/56335-solution-ccleaner-cannot-fully-clean-microsoft-edge-due-to-pre-loading/
  2. You can completely disable it until they fix it, or if you think it may be some corruption you can disable and then re-enable the Recycle Bin menu in CCleaner by opening CCleaner and then go into: Options > Settings There will be two check boxes in there to toggle on or off, the changes should be immediate however if they are not you could sign out of Windows and then sign on to refresh Explorer.exe. I once had those two listings get corrupted years ago after updating, how I fixed it was to disable then re-enable it in CCleaner.
  3. I thought they were combined at one point, but I could be wrong.
  4. It will work but needs a valid partition and file system to do so at least in Windows.
  5. FYI: Your link is fine since it's not for a competing product against CCleaner. Good investigating! I wasn't getting that Runtime Broker error since I've had the Control Panel display as icons (since it's easier to find things that way) ever since I bought my laptop.
  6. If you use Windows 10 it will eventually not allow you to use an old version at some point. What older version did you install? There are caveats using older versions such as bugs they've fixed in more recent versions. If using an older version that still has the ability to clean the Windows.old folder it can damage Windows 10, and some other possible Windows 10 damaging issues they've fixed.
  7. I sometimes wonder if it's just a timing error, like something taking longer to perform a task causing it. don't know off hand. Kind of reminds me of Firefox Portable running from slow media like an IDE hard disk on an old OS like WinXP (or even a commodity low-end USB stick running slowly in a USB 2.0 or 3.0 port), where it will warn something is taking too long as if it were so critical to show the end-user some form of error, yet if it just waited a few seconds instead of warning it would be non-issue since whatever it's loading will eventual load.
  8. I'll point a Piriform admin employee to your topic so they can help sort it out.
  9. That's what I've been doing with the two errors it always shows for me. Although it's strange to see consistent errors about the same things yet they work without any noticeable issues, no crashing, no freezing, no BSOD, etc.
  10. You can use CCleaner (or any disk cleaning tool for that matter) on an SSD using the Normal file deletion method, which is what CCleaner has enabled by default. As long as you have Trim enabled on the SSD Windows will be able to automatically maintain it by occasionally using Trim.
  11. I also don't have that error for RunTime Broker. Still have the other two I previously listed. Whatever those services are having errors with one would think with a bunch of error reports being sent to Microsoft that they'd know about it and probably do something, then again if they don't make the drivers for it perhaps it's out of their control. One thing to make sure of is to try the PC drivers from the OEM manufacturer of the PC since they may have a custom build of the drivers - which may be out-dated however.
  12. It's a known reported issue and has been posted about in various topics by multiple people. Here's one long topic on the issue.
  13. I have two SSDs in my laptop and would NEVER use it on them. Anyways SSD manufacturer software has secure erasing built in using their own algorithms I'd suppose but those nuke all the data on the SSD.
  14. See here for choosing which cookies to keep in CCleaner: https://www.ccleaner.com/docs/ccleaner/ccleaner-settings/choosing-which-cookies-to-keep Edit - Tip: You will also have to use Custom Clean seen on the left of CCleaner when cleaning, since that's the only way it will use your user settings of excluded cookies.
  15. Doing that with BitDefender doesn't always work, see here: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/56164-cannot-install-ccleaner-563/
  16. I saw a YouTube tech news video the other day that very briefly mentioned modern ChromeBooks have better printer support being a contributing reason for Google ending Cloud Print.
  17. Very rarely it has issues with PeerBlock on my system, for me just signing out of Windows and signing back on fixes it. One workaround I had to do to get PeerBlock to even show in the SysTray was to create it as a scheduled task, otherwise it would never run. Since CCleaner isn't loading properly and if it's a scheduled task perhaps re-making from scratch that task would fix it -- just guessing at this point though.
  18. Depending upon the Chromebook some can run Linux apps nowadays according to some YouTube reviews I've seen this year. Now if there's an alternative or not I wouldn't know.
  19. "Maybe" uninstalling, then reinstalling CCleaner ("clean install") would fix it as a last resort -- with the nearly monthly updates perhaps it's a settings error or corruption. But be warned there's a big caveat with uninstalling it nowadays in that some people have serious issues getting it to install at all.
  20. You lot really shouldn't have to mess around with your firewall security for that. Modern versions of CCleaner can hang/freeze if it's blocked from phoning home, such as if there are firewall rules blocking it outbound web access, or even the HOSTS file could cause it if for instance blocking Avast and Piriform URLs. A really easy way to figure out if something on your system is blocking outbound for CCleaner is to: Open CCleaner and then go into 'Tools > Software Updater', if it freezes that's a good indication that either your firewall or HOSTS file is blocking it from phoning home and it can't deal with it and thus freezes - doesn't matter if it's the freeware version either the freeze will/should happen.
  21. I've always seen two services listed in Reliability Monitor's history that have "stopped working" TPMProvisioningService.exe ("Intel iCLS Client") and ZeroConfigService.exe ("Intel WiFi). I just ignore it because they're out-of-sight thus out-of-mind and they seem to do what they need then "stop working" supposedly. And it hasn't been something a clean install can fix.
  22. Leaving ESET out of the discussion because this forum knows why they flag the installers. There's usually a few particular av engines on VT that flag allot of legitimate software. And yes if those av's are creating too many false positives they should probably be removed. I simply ignore the results from av engines that are known to produce too many false positives but since VT uses them it can cause people to not install software that's being falsely detected.
  23. Yes, and another is the Your Phone app which supposedly shouldn't be messed with either, even if it's entirely unused.
  24. Might backfire and be an incentive for people to upgrade to AMD Ryzen.
  25. Most SSDs from my knowledge already compress files which are compressible, a good reason to not for instance store a ton of already compressed and thus non-compressible any further files on them such as MP3's, movies, etc.
