    The most current version of Recuva was released on June 2016, if your hardware (including BIOS) is newer than the software examining it that may explain things. You can always get a second opinion with other similar freeware tools.
  2. That must be that new optional update it's showing me: KB4517211 Then again maybe not. Those optional updates I will now forever ignore until they're mandatory, don't feel like being a beta tester guinea pig for them again. Just noticed in Automatic Updates they should let that text be copied to the clipboard, or offer a URL link for someone to see what the update is because "Download and Install now" didn't go so well a very short time ago earlier this month.
  3. Avast/Piriform supposedly fixed the installer... or not. They've had a periodic lag/latency issue over the years (used to be a Google bundle-ware issue) where the offer is not shown when it was supposed to be. It's the default ticked box for Avast that causes it to install. They would probably do better to not offer anything at all during installation due to prior and on-going unwanted bundle-ware, and instead use the pop-up notification offers CCleaner Free has had for awhile now to advertise Avast Free Antivirus, and if: 1. The user clicks upon it then open a webpage where the download is available. 2. The user has to actually download it like all other software on the web - manually themselves because they want it. 3. Finally the user would run the installer themselves in their Downloads folder. Three point install authentication, well sorta. In that scenario unwanted installs would no longer be an issue.
  4. See this official post on a "possible solution" although I don't know if the issue is related or the same you're having but it's something they changed in the Standard installer that isn't compatible with WinXP: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/54880-cant-uninstall-ccleaner/?do=findComment&comment=310286
  5. Does this have to do with multiple duplicate copies of CCleaner .EXE files seen running in Windows Task Manager using up allot of resources? If so, there have been other bug reports about it from various Windows OSes. This is one of the more current links I was able to find, couldn't find the others unfortunately: *
  6. Ten years later, you really should've just started a new topic perhaps even a bug report in the CCleaner Mac section. Supposedly there are differences between how it wipes free space on Mac OS vs Windows. As for how it wipes a Mac I can only go by comments I've seen previously posted in that "it uses what's already built into Mac OS", now if that's true or not I haven't a clue since I've never used Mac OS.

  8. Why, because they need to sync their system clock to realize it's 2019, and we expect this to be in Automatic Updates. Or on the next feature update just allow the full removal of IE and be done with it.
  9. Would be nice if the .INI files weren't inside CCleaner anymore like the old days. Then those too could be auto-fixed in a matter of minutes or hours if another issue arises like the already fixed Windows.old issue.
  10. If you're going to clean the registry perhaps keep the backup .REG files for a period of 3 to 6 months. With registry cleaning any damage caused by it may not be obvious for months later. Also your version of CCleaner it outdated, you can get a newer version at: https://www.ccleaner.com/ccleaner/builds
  11. From what I've experienced with Chrome/Chromium based browsers since 2014 the main don't touch directories will have "Local Extension Settings" in the path, which is why I exclude mine in CCleaner, etc., for SRWare Iron Portable.
  12. Were you using any secure delete, wipe free space on the SSD? Also on another system try to run chkdsk /r on the SSD. Although the SSD is only four months old that doesn't mean they can't randomly fail out of nowhere, Amazon.com customer reviews are full of reports of SSDs just dying at random.
  13. Have you look in CCleaner at: Options > Cookies Then move what cookie you need to keep from 'Cookies on Computer' into 'Cookies to Keep' by using the button: ->
  14. That incognito switch tacked onto the end of the target in an already pre-made shortcut should work with Chrome/Chromium and the "clones" of those, unless of course they've did things completely differently in CC Browser. Try this (note I have not used CC Browser yet, just assuming it works in accordance with other Chrome/Chromium based browsers): 1. Right-click the CC Browser shortcut, click Properties, then click the Shortcut tab: 2. Find the Target:, this points to where the .EXE file resides and what the shortcut will run, then paste this at the end of it: -incognito Should look similar to this, using generic names here: "C:\Path To A Chrome-Chromium Based Browser\BrowserExecutableFile.exe" -incognito 3. Start CC Browser to see if it's running in Incognito mode (or whatever they may be calling it instead).

    If it's the OS license, i.e.; Windows 10 it's either tied to your Microsoft Account. Or if you have a Local Account it's tied to your hardware.
  16. @wazzyl Go to the Malwarebytes Forums and ask for help. I was on their forum a couple of days ago and looked at some topics where some people had issues with the licensing.
  17. Might want to also look up Google documentation about Chrome as well. The way some of the settings are nestled inside sub-menus in a Chrome/Chromium-based browser may not be obvious where something is located, so some digging is usually required. Also as with all browsers get into the regular habit of backing up your browser profile, simply zipping the whole browser profile folder into a single ZIP archive will suffice and will likely save you from a headache at some point - as I remember years ago some Chromium based browsers nuking my profile after updating the browser version.
  18. Looking through all the built-in cleaners I've got ticked I don't see what could be causing it. Although, if you're using anything like the community Winapp2.ini file, or any CCleaner enhancers try to disable or remove them and see if that remedies the issue.
  19. One more try and one of us mods will just have to close this topic. It's becoming a waste of time.
  20. Like Nergal originally stated it's better to just post a picture in an actual picture format like .JPG, or .PNG. Even the PDF people won't like to mess around with and it's generally frowned upon to use such a file format to show a picture since PDF's are also an avenue for infections.
  21. One thing to try, just in case IE has any possible corruption is to open IE and used the cleaning tools built into it to clean everything. Then restart the computer, and give CCleaner a try again and see if it's any faster. Might work, might not, but worth a try.
  22. While Piriform products are still compatible with good ole charished XP SP3, that might not necessarily be the same for the NSIS installer/uninstaller they use. With the way CCleaner installs which is minimal by my books by not creating a bunch of stuff all over the system in files and registry settings I'd be rather confident in the abilities of both Geek Uninstaller Free and especially Revo Uninstaller Free removing it after a reboot in case Smart Cleaning ("used to be called Monitoring") is enabled in CCleaner -- even though the default built-in NSIS uninstaller is failing. I thought not too long ago someone else reported a failure of it uninstalling, can't seem to find that topic. Maybe the uninstall failure has something to do with Smart Cleaning if it's enabled on the system, since it causes so many failures to merely update/upgrade CCleaner with it running resident in the background.
  23. Might help to mention what operating system you're using, and if you have administrator privileges on the account you're using - that's about all else I can think about at the moment.
  24. It would be nice for users to have an official source for old versions right on the official website CCleaner.com. Allot of software makers still offer at the very least the last version that worked with a particular old/legacy OS -- which is always infinitely safer to get from the official website.
  25. Try to get it from the official CCleaner site, you could manually edit the download link to reflect the version you're wanting Example change the resulting file name in the URL from ccsetup561.exe to ccsetup540.exe or whatever it is you're after. Might work on download sites too, then again it might not. Edit: Just tested it by downloading CCleaner Portable v5.58 from CCleaner.com, merely by copy+paste+editing the URL and it worked.
