  1. It downloads fine for me, however I will re-upload it since my editing of that post may have broken something.
  2. You have to be logged into your forum account to download it.
  3. USB flash drives ("UFD") would have to be formatted as NTFS for Trim to work however it won't work, and NTFS is not a typical file system for someone to be using on a UFD unless the capacity was over 32GB. This is what I get when invoking Trim via a command prompt on one formatted as NTFS, i.e.; Win10 or the flash controller itself doesn't allow it: "The operation requested is not supported by the hardware backing the volume. (0x8900002A)" But then on the other hand there are USB solid state flash drives, I've seen them as MLC and TLC, and those I'd imagine should support Trim sinc
  4. Some recovery tools require a valid file system to recover files especially the freeware variety which is why people not wanting to spend 1 cent on such a tool may do a quick format on a drive/disk to allow such a tool to function - but there's always the risk of destroying the files you need to recover doing that. Whereas other recovery tools may cost money (sometimes allot of money) that can recover from drives/disks that are deemed as unformatted in Windows.
  5. Read the dedicated pinned topic about it located here, it has full instructions and like I previously stated in this topic. In that dedicated topic look get the ZIP download with easy instructions and an included .reg file that will automatically apply the fix for you. Zero registry editing knowledge is required if you use the supplied ZIP download.
  6. 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/
  7. 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.
  8. I thought they were combined at one point, but I could be wrong.
  9. It will work but needs a valid partition and file system to do so at least in Windows.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. I'll point a Piriform admin employee to your topic so they can help sort it out.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. Doing that with BitDefender doesn't always work, see here: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/56164-cannot-install-ccleaner-563/
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. "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.
