  1. You can have CCleaner automatically clean those files by inputting an Include: https://www.ccleaner.com/docs/ccleaner/using-ccleaner/including-files-and-folders-for-cleaning Edit: Note that this will only work if you're using Custom Clean, located in: Options > Settings
  2. It doesn't clean inside the Program Files or ProgramData folder. It only removes the unpacked setup files after running setup.exe which will get unpacked into: C:\NVIDIA
  3. I don't know anything about Mac OS having never used it. Perhaps try to get malware removal help on a Mac forum, or go directly to Apple to find help resources.
  4. HTTP = Less secure HTTPS = Highly secure More reading here: https://www.guru99.com/difference-http-vs-https.html
  5. Win10 has issues with external/portable SSDs, safely remove them and plug them in a few minutes later and it doesn't remember having just optimized the SSD with Trim minutes earlier. They should fix or implement remembering that, and preferably keep the last date and time for the device/hardware ID optimization in the registry - or since they're so damned insistent on creating locked System Volume Information on every disk type they could store it in that locked folder.
  6. One workaround for older OSes (I'm not sure if it's Win8.1 specifically, although it has been recommended for Win7) is to instead download and install the Slim builds going forward (something to do with how the installer works now): https://www.ccleaner.com/ccleaner/builds Also check your antivirus logs, not too long ago a couple of antivirus' wouldn't allow a new version due to false positives.
  7. You could try re-saving the file with Avidemux (open source/GPL) without re-encoding/transcoding it to losslessly restore it -- but you're going to have to know the specifics of how the file was saved originally, i.e.; video codec, and audio codec, and what the file extension is. Doing that would write a header in the video so that playback software and hardware would know what it is and how to play it but that's of course assuming the video file is actually recoverable and intact, it might not be. Here's the link to Avidemux Portable, it doesn't install anything so if it doesn't wor
  8. I'll just wait 30-60 days then play loaded gun roulette with it. I doubt it will be offered to my Acer laptop, none of the major upgrades ever have been.
  9. For something that can always be resident and waiting such as with Smart Clean (and its previous incarnations) it's actually following the behavior of any other program that can remain resident and do an unattended automatted background task by being in the SysTray (AV, firewall, IP blocker, etc.,).
  10. Pro version isn't going to clean it any better! Possibly they need to update CCleaner to clean it as per usual they will always be playing catch up especially when it comes to Chrome/Chromium-based browsers.
  11. Perhaps look for help on the official Amazon Forum: https://www.amazonforum.com https://www.amazonforum.com/s/global-search/restore files data --------------- Supposedly "there is a way with paid for software" going by results in this search (I haven't tried it, so I don't know the results): https://duckduckgo.com/?q=recover+files+from+fire+tablet --------------- One thing I do know since my mother has umpteen different Amazon Fire Tablets is you can re-download your files (pictures, etc.,) if you synced/backed them up on Amazon cloud servers (I haven't a clue if it do
  12. The way the forum is configured you can't to my knowledge.
  13. It's been able to clean Edge Chromium going back several versions.
  14. With it misbehaving on two completely different installs of Win10 I wonder if it has something to do with how it's configured to run in Task Scheduler.
  15. I never liked the fact that Flash was baked into Win10 with no ability to uninstall it either via the UI, or via a PowerShell script like how we can get rid of allot of other unwanted stuff.
  16. It would've had Windows Defender by default, and enabled.
  17. Someone should tell them about Windows® 3.1.
  18. Sometimes upgrading Windows may break something, or the CCleaner settings could just be corrupt. If you haven't done so yet you may need to do a clean/fresh install of CCleaner which details: 1. Uninstall CCleaner. 2. Restart Windows. 3. Install CCleaner.
  19. 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.
  20. Windows 10 in particular can be finicky with some old 3rd party defrag tools with large capacity HDDs (1TB or bigger).
  21. 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.
  22. 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/
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
  25. 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.
