  1. I am being nagged again to install update. Same as before. My settings have not changed. Nag is pushing v5.77.8448 (18 Feb 2021).
  2. Warning! Ccleaner would not let me check for updates and go to Piriform website. When I clicked "Check for Updates" the nag box came back. The green pear that used to be in the upper right hand corner has disappeared. There is no way to get to website and read release notes in advance. I went ahead and clicked update now. Piriform dumped the update and rapidly installed it. I have no idea what else was installed. There was no place to decline unwanted programs if there were any. I have no idea what Piriform just dumped into my computer in addition to the update. Beware. There
  3. nikki605 Your right. Procedure went smoothly but did not work. I even turned off computer and then turned it back on. I checked the history of the task and it had not run since I disabled it. But the nag is still there. My guess is this nag is in the system and I will probably install what it wants. I am hoping that the next update will be blocked. Only time will tell. I hate what Ccleaner has become. I would get rid of it in a heart beat if there was anything else out there. Until someone else comes up with a simple program to clear out junk Piriform controls my computer not me
  4. Perfect. I disabled Ccleaner update task. Thank you Hazelnut!
  5. Seems like every time I update I loose something I want or gain something I don't want. I guess now I have lost the ability turn off updates and avoid stuff I don not want. Is it no longer possible to avoid updates now?
  6. I have Ccleaner 5.75.8238 (64bit). Every time I turn it on to clean I get a nag to update. This used to be turned off. “update automatically” and “send notification” are both unchecked. How do I turn off this nag screen?
  7. I currently have Windows 10 v1909 build 18363.900. For a long time and many builds when I include Internet Explorer History to be cleaned, I have gotten: Warning Event ID 3036 in the Event Viewer. (Crawl could not be completed on content source <iehistory://{S-1-5-21-811697208-3521500205-3758811873-1001}/>. Context: Application, System Index Catalog Details: An internal error occurred in the Microsoft Windows HTTP Services (HRESULT: 0x80072ee4) (0x80072ee4) I tried to modify Indexing Options and remove Internet explorer History from indexing. That did not
  8. Application tab>Windows>MS Search What does this clean? I know it says MS search but I am not sure what that is or where to find it. For example, is that the search function I am using when I search for a file in Windows Explorer? Is it the search used when I use the search box in the task bar? If I tick the box next to it will it mess up indexing and Windows will have to index again? I have used Ccleaner for years and never ticked the box because I thought it would corrupt Indexing but maybe it just removes the list of searchs I have done somewhere in Windows. Thank y
  9. Still wanting info on the inconsistacy between Windows 10 and Ccleaner System Restore tool. I would like to remove some but not all restore points but I can't because while they are on Windows 10 System Restore they are not listed on Ccleaner tool. Also I tried to remove one old RP two weeks ago using the Ccleaner tool but it is still listed on Windows 10 System Restore. Does the Ccleaner tool not work anymore?
  10. System Restore: Windows 10 shows 12 restore points but Ccleaner tool shows only 7. I see that the two backups I did one week apart, where Ccleaner just shows “Backup” System Restore shows two RP’s, “Automatic Restore point” and “System Image Restore Point”. Still there is one RP I removed with Ccleaner tool but it is still there in System Restore on Windows 10. Programs and Features: Windows 10 shows 23 items but Ccleaner shows 63 items. Ccleaner does not reflect all the apps and programs I uninstalled with Win10>Control Panel>Programs and Features. I don’t think i
  11. Update for all. Thank you for your interest and suggestions. Here are my responses and where things stand now. In my second post (see above) I corrected the first to say that I made a mistake. The RP’s on my Win7 computer were not being erased. I have accepted the solution that it was my fault because somehow wipe free space drives on a new install of Cc got checked in settings and should not have been. When I unchecked the box, the box actually went away. I really don’t remember checking it, but this whole transition from Win7 to Win10 has this old lady so frazzled I just don’t
  12. Well it happened again. No drive wiping this time. I have been manually creating RP’s (3) and then running normal file deletion, that’s all. The RP’s were fine. I created an RP before installing Microsoft Office 2019. So far so good. Went to bed. Checked system restore this morning and all the restore points are gone. I have Windows update on pause so it wasn’t an update. I have no idea how this is happening. Earlier I had asked if Windows would think my C: drive was full forever and keep wiping RP’s away every time it needed space. That does not appear to be the case.
  13. Well you have both been kind and understanding. I feel so bad I did it to myself. I still don’t understand why there was even a box to check when there was none on my Win7 Ccleaner. I am glad it is now also gone on my Win10 Ccleaner. Honestly don’t remember checking it or why I would have thought I wanted to clean free space on a new computer. Well the deed is done. Now that the box is gone and there will be no more wipe free space actions, are my restore points safe? Or will Win10 have to keep taking restore points because Ccleaner wrote in all the free space? I think I under
  14. Thank you for your reply. First of all in my panic I just saw restore points missing when I tested my Win7 computer and forgot to check show more points box. They were there. Also there is no box next to wipe free space on Ccleaner on my Win 7 computer. I see it is checked now on my Win 10 computer which is a fresh install on a new machine. It must have been checked by default and I am sick about it. I want to be clear and do the right thing. If I uncheck the box next to wipe free space, I can run Ccleaner and my restore points will not be erased. Honestly I do not know how it happe
  15. When and what version of Ccleaner started erasing restore points. I did not want to erase my restore points. Ccleaner must be set to erase retore points by default and I did not know it. Please tell me how to stop this. I cannot find it in any settings. I have version 5.63.7540 free and this just came without warning. I was setting up a new Windows 10 computer and carfully setting retore points and they are all gone. I went to my old Windows 7 PC and it has been happening there also. I did not know it. I am not talking about the System restore tool. I am talking about runnin
