  1. 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#
  2. 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.
  3. Possibly because I reported it to the MVPS author! uBlock Origin is also now able to update MVPS Host File.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.

    Yeah, it's the same month that Steve Irwin "The Crocodile Hunter" passed in 2006.
  9. From your above description it sounds like a confusing venture into tweaking the system. At least you found the cause.
  10. You could've always searched on YouTube! The techies on YouTube have umpteen WiFi 6 videos.
  11. It would be better if they only removed things from that area with a one cleaning entry instead of two in CCleaner, and if it was named accordingly for what and where it cleans, i.e.; Quick Access. That's why on Win10 for 2 years and 2 months I had no "recent documents" and didn't know why so I always thought it was broken in Win10, I'm so used to not having it that I had turned on to keep the MRU list in my chosen text editor as a work around. That kind of clean it twice with two cleaners needs to be corrected, and in my opinion this topic being in the Bug Reporting area is oh so very ap
  12. There's always Resource Hacker (http://www.angusj.com/resourcehacker/) to "try to increase the fonts" in programs that will allow it (many don't). In some programs it's easy, it's literally changing for instance the font type size from for example 10 to 12, but it can screw up any dialog boxes a program may have and it's only useful for very old programs that don't get updated frequently or for those which are abandon-ware. It isn't worth even trying with CCleaner being that it's digitally signed and will probably cause antivirus to think it's malware, and since CCleaner gets updated too frequ
  13. See if this helps: https://community.ccleaner.com/topic/40285-ccleaner-not-deleting-google-chrome-history-fix/
  14. The bug started back in CCleaner v5.64: https://community.ccleaner.com/topic/57030-ccleaner-v5647613-cleaning-duplication-doubling-bug/
  15. You have to uncheck both for it to leave files you've recently opened to show in Windows 10 Quick Access. At least that's what I found out.
  16. Try giving HWiNFO a try and see what it detects, it's more up to date.
  17. I think you might need to, reason being anyone could login and say "delete this account". Such as this topic for example since you aren't logged into the account to request its removal.
  18. I don't think the updating is done just yet! There's also no themes to change the forum coloring which the moderation team has complained about.
  19. Original retail Descent games on CD don't work on Win10, I tried last month and got the failure I was expecting.
  20. The only reason I still have an old Dell that runs Win98 (should've bought the 98SE upgrade disc back then) is to play the Descent games that never worked in later versions of Windows.
  21. Correct. I guess it's a good time for people with bookmarks that are saved to spend a few minutes tidying them up, for instance make sure they use the secure "https://" and that the sites actually still work after changing them, some sites still use the insecure "http://".
  22. It's actually been "https://community.ccleaner.com" for awhile now. You may also notice things like the Documentation site, etc., have all moved awhile ago also to CCleaner.com.
  23. Because your hardware is likely newer than Speccy which needs an update for newer hardware. Then again I haven't used it in so many years I can't remember if it had temps for those or not. There's always HWiNFO and/or HWiNFO Portable which is freeware and regularly updated to be compatible with the newest hardware.
  24. You could try Geek Uninstaller Free and Revo Uninstaller Free, but without the unins000.dat file they may not be of any help.
  25. I remember a friend getting Win95 and inviting me over to play I believe the game was MechWarrior at the time. I don't miss the Win9x era VxD bugs, and remember on Win98 making a VxD bug fix script that would re-copy the good/working and not corrupted VxD files back into the OS - made having to reinstall the Win98 OS fresh every few months (sometimes every 6 months) for that specific error a thing of the past.
