  1. You're asking a question about something that was posted 13 years ago. Instead of waiting for Piriform to fix it you can exclude it immediately on your system -- or disable/untick in CCleaner any boxes that clean Skype. Exclude items: 1. Start CCleaner. 2. Click: Options > Exclude 3. In Exclude click: Add 4. You can exclude the Skype physical folder(s), or files(s) installed on your disk drive, or registry data.
  2. Windows 10 in particular can be finicky with some old 3rd party defrag tools with large capacity HDDs (1TB or bigger).
  3. If your HDD uses the NTFS file system "in theory end-tasking Defraggler using Task Manager shouldn't harm your data" since in the background it's using the Microsoft Defrag API.
  4. Clipboard is partly cloud-based in Win10, so effectively cleaning it may not be possible. Here's another not so old other topic about it: https://community.ccleaner.com/topic/54438-wipe-clipboard-history-windows-10-1809-now-in-ccleaner-561/

    I compile my own copy for SRWare Iron Portable. I'm don't use the Chrome Store version due to the buggy release back in 2018 where it would consistently always crash and we had to wait about one full week for a fix. Other than that I don't really like the new UI that much at all, but oh well.
  6. Regular forum members can't edit topic titles. Those of us that have that ability don't usually edit them if possible because when editing them it breaks any URL links on this forum (or elsewhere Internet-Land) that point to a particular topic because of how Invision Power Board creates those URLs now.
  7. With CCleaner being a cleaning program that's different since changes Microsoft makes to Windows 10 can cause a cleaning tool such as CCleaner to have the potential to break something -- which has been the case a few times as seen on the forums via bug posts.
  8. The first bit was posted here: https://community.ccleaner.com/topic/58176-ccleaner-v5667716-very-slow-to-launch-blocking-ccleaner-will-slow-it-down/?do=findComment&comment=319407 What's any software, game, OS, etc., phoning home for: Updates, but mostly Telemetry.
  9. That will only work for awhile, up to the point when Microsoft won't allow an old version to be used at all on Windows, Windows 10 at least and there's a bunch of old versions the don't allow.
  10. Nergal, the site still states: [Updated March-03-2020] Edit: Nevermind, he forgot to change the date on the site, however the downloaded HOSTS.zip file has a 3 May 2020 dated HOSTS file in it.
  11. The previous zip Portable version 5.65 is still on CCleaner.com, just not listed, here: https://download.ccleaner.com/portable/ccsetup565.zip
  12. New entry: [AOMEI Partition Assistant *] LangSecRef=3024 Detect=HKCU\Software\Partition Assistant Default=False FileKey1=%ProgramFiles%\AOMEI Partition Assistant\log|*.log
  13. If only that was the only thing to block, I've got a list a mile long of URLs I block which to me more-or-less proves Avast up to something. A single product like CCleaner doesn't need all those phone home links to function or report data back - in my opinion.
  14. Thank you. However the slow startup isn't the only issue though, I was only curious about the new version for about 20 seconds.
  15. Portable software can save anything it wants such as settings (cache for portable web browsers) in their own unique folder to re-use - it's however a big no-no if they save outside of their own folder which in that case calling them portable wouldn't really be correct and in that case they should be labelled as "no-installer" instead of "portable." But to be clear CCleaner Portable is actually portable.
  16. Confirmed. I reported it a few minutes before you did in another topic. Edit: It's like it can't just gracefully abort/cancel/ignore the integrated web-based "stuff" in Health Check, etc., so that it doesn't hinder startup. It's the reason I downgraded yet again for another reason.
  17. Blocking via HOSTS file and/or Firewall causes CCleaner v5.66 (the version I tested) to take a very long time to launch, at least 10 seconds.
  18. Try the Slim build installer from this page: https://www.ccleaner.com/ccleaner/builds
  19. Older versions are located on FileHippo, located on the right-side of the page: https://filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/
  20. They don't have for forum to my knowledge (couldn't find one, although there is a contact page). Also the author is a member on this forum.
  21. I've split these posts into a unique topic since it had nothing to do in the other topic in which it was posted.
  22. I had suggested they create a page, but I don't think they care to have a webpage for XP/Vista users. So my response was to create this at the very end of this pinned help topic (so it's at least documented with information): https://community.ccleaner.com/topic/5739-solution-when-ccleaner-wont-install-or-download-windows/?do=findComment&comment=303883
  23. I'd imagine at some point Automatic Updates will re-gift you (and everyone else that hasn't installed it as of yet) with Edge Chromium rather you want it or not.
