  1. 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://".
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. You could try Geek Uninstaller Free and Revo Uninstaller Free, but without the unins000.dat file they may not be of any help.
  5. 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.
  6. That might be what's causing it on your system. On my system it shows the Recent Files List and none of the cleaning tools built into Windows will remove that list I've tried Disk Cleanup and Storage Sense and both leave it intact. Exactly as Hazelnut has stated CCleaner always removes the Recent File List, it doesn't matter if it's enabled or disabled in CCleaner it just removes the list, although I'm on a now old version CCleaner v5.63 so I can't say what the newest CCleaner version does. It's probably why I always thought the Recent Files List was broken in Win10 ever since I started u
  7. They seriously need to update their other tools, they keep saying they'll eventually get around to them since CCleaner gets most of their attention. ---------------------- Depending upon how a drive is formatted such as a USB Flash Drive it's easy to also fool Windows 10 into reporting one as an HDD.
  8. Open several dozen tabs if your device supports it, and then open Task Manager in Windows and see how much of your RAM Chrome is consuming. Chrome also has a bug when combined with Windows 10 that doesn't support YouTube HDR video.
  9. Windows Defender or possibly you allowed it as an allowed exception. If you really want it gone off your system such as you have no plans to ever use CCleaner again open Windows Defender, and go into: 1. Virus & threat protection 2. Manage ransomware protection 3. Allow an app through Controlled folder access 4. Delete the offending file from the list (it should be in there). Done. Note: Don't remove anything that looks like it's built into Windows from the list such as chkdsk.exe, etc.
  10. From a quick search I did: Up to a certain version of Windows 10 it only supported up to 64K cluster size (like several previous versions of Windows did). At some point Microsoft included 128K and above in Windows 10. Since Microsoft changed a standard it will take disk based tools like defrag tools, recovery tools, etc., time to catch up to the change - if they bother at all. As you've found out Defraggler doesn't support larger than the old/legacy standard of 64K, and the same issue will be present in most third party disk tools. Therefore you'll likely be limited to only using t
  11. If it's a hard disk drive defragment it using the built-in Windows defrag tool.
  12. Saw a YouTube video a few hours ago about Apple kicking them off their platform, seems more interesting with others doing the same. I wonder if any U.S. laws have anything to do with it getting kicked off platforms, since the game is supposedly backed by China. I've never been interested in the game, it looks too cartoonish for my tastes.
  13. That's why I've been using ESR Portable builds for a few years now. It's still my primary browser but it was difficult to migrate back to it after years of only using Chromium clones.
  14. Reminds me of what I was saying the other day about needing browser alternatives instead of umpteen Chromium/Chrome clones (i.e.; like needing something like Edge Legacy), I thought Firefox was on borrowed time now this.
  15. 14 files equaling 6.1GB should only take minutes not hours, which makes me thing you might have an HDD using SMR, coupled with Defraggler being slow. If you use Win10 that might also not help you speed-wise. I've got one of those SMR drives that I suppose does all it's shuffling about wizardry by itself which can't be reliably defragmented by any defrag tool on Win10 so I don't bother messing with it on Win10 other than copying files onto it - one of these days I'll secure erase it and then use a hammer on it. As for maintaining it I instead use an old WinXP PC to do it and if finishes a
  16. What is the technology behind the drive, is it an SMR drive? If so they can be very slow. Some info and links posted on here not that long ago about SMR drives: https://community.ccleaner.com/topic/58444-defraggler-worst-one-and-slowly-kills-drives/?do=findComment&comment=320468
  17. Instead try the Slim setup file which contains no additional 3rd party software, it's available from this page: https://www.ccleaner.com/ccleaner/builds You might do well to bookmark that page if it happens again in the future.
  18. Already brought up before, but the posts were deleted.
  19. Unzip all of the contents from the ZIP over what you already have to update it. Doing that will not remove your settings since it doesn't have any settings ("ccleaner.ini") by default.
  20. Here: https://support.piriform.com/hc/en-us/requests/new
  21. I didn't mean to upset you. Although to also help other users who might happen along your topic you'd be surprised at how many people don't know to not do certain potentially damaging tasks on their SSD that they could do previously with a mechanical hard disk disk, such as Defragment, Secure Delete, and Wipe Free Space, etc.
  22. Along with the invalid/wrong URL I watched a YouTube video yesterday that stated VPN software should be updated immediately whenever there's a new version available because they're supposedly prone to becoming incompatible with Windows 10 after Windows Updates.
  23. I wonder why Hardware Acceleration is becoming an issue again in 2020 in various browsers, that is if that's the cause.
  24. The thanks should go to APMichael, I merely modified what he had already posted.
