  1. Yes Andavari, you are right:

    I could update my ordinary Portable Build of CCleaner on one of my USB-Sticks to CCleaner Pro

    just by entering my license key inside the About dialog - Yet i found this drawback:

     

    This enhanced portable build does _not_ allow to drag my desktop shortcut

    ["T:\Progs\CCleaner\ccleaner64.exe" /Auto] to the taskbar,

    while the official CCleaner Pro installed to folder "C:\Program Files\CCleaner"

    _can_ easily be dragged to the taskbar!

  2. 1. For which time span will the paid amount of 19,95 Euro be good ?

        Or: After how many months or years will i have to pay a similar amount _again_??

        Or: Are these paid 19,95 Euros valid for _all_ upcoming versions of CCleaner Pro ???

        The emails a got from Piriform after ordering CCleaner Pro contain NO answer to this question !!!

     

    2. I complain about the installer of CCleaner Pro:

        It does _not_ provide a free choice on which drive and folder CCleaner Pro is to be installed -

        It will automatically and always install to only this fixed "C:\Program Files\CCleaner" place !!

        You will detect this only after the installation is done, Piriform does not communicate

         this fixed target place at the beginning, it just says "Install" but not "where"...

     

         I don't like this behaviour, since i installed my earlier versions of normal CCleaner

         for many years on purpose _always_ on an 16 GB USB-Stick, so i could quickly replace

         this stick to my second fall back computer and use CCleaner from there,

         in case my first computer stops working correctly...

     

         Actually, my preferred install method is "No Installer - Using a a small .zip file instead" -

         Nomore possible with CCleaner PRO !! ??

     

    3. Currently, the advantages of CCleaner Pro versus CCleaner normal are indeed present,

        but relatively small: We now have in addition to the "system cleanup" now the "browser cleanup",

        which take place whenever i completely close my IE-11 sessions or my google chrome sessions:

        I'm using Chrome Developer since many years, currently the new 64-bit version "39.0.2166.2"...

        

        I prepared in the Taskbar of my Windows 7 SP1 Pro (and Ultimate on 2. PC), both 64-bit,

        an additional Shortcut to my USB-Stick ["T:\Progs\CCleaner\CCleaner64.exe" /AUTO]

        which i click after closing all browser tabs and windows.

        This way i can manually clean about 30 MB of old unwanted browser data

        with a single mouse click.

     

    I hope to get some useful answers on my questions and thoughts!

  3. Before 2 days my old "RealPlayer" Version 16.0.3.51 was updated

    to a new "RealPlayer Cloud" with Version 17.0.6.13 -

     

    Today, this new version is NOT supported by CCleaner.

     

    Therefore, i don't get by CCleaner any cleaning of this very interesting new RP Cloud Version -

     

    Please, update asap winapp.ini to support this new RealPlayer Cloud!

     

    Thanx in advance

     

    pirat from Heidelberg, Germany

    a happy user of 4 piriform programs

     

  4. Same problem here on my Window 7 Ultimate 64-bit:

     

    My desktop shortcut [T:\Progs\CCleaner\CCleaner64.exe /AUTO /SHUTDOWN]

    only performs the first part "cleaning all found issues" according to parameter "/AUTO",

    but the wanted second part "shutdown after cleaning" does _not_ work anymore

    in CCleaner's latest version 4.9.0.4471 (earler versions were ok).

     

    Please fix this asap!

  5. In the CCleaner's Main Window under "CCleaner/Windows/Internet Explorer"

    i right-click the checked item "[v] Cookies" and then i see a contxt-menu

    containing these 3 items:

     

    Analyze

    Clean

    Restore default state

     

    When left-click in this context-menu the item "Analyze"

    then i see just 1 entry consisting of

    an IE8-Icon followed by the complete File-Path

    named "F:\Temp_D_\David\Cookies\david@real[1].txt"

     

    "david@real[1].txt" is the original cookie

    set by my RealPlayerSP (latest version)

    to easier track what i am doing with the RP-SP...

     

    This an _unwanted_ cookie and this cookie can and will be

    deleted by CCleaner whenever i run "CCleaner.exe /AUTO" -

    But this procedure must be _repeated_ from time to time,

    since RP-SP _re-creates_ the cookie at unpredictable times...

     

    Reason for the Path "F:\Temp_D_\David\Cookies\" *before* the cookie-file:

     

    I *redirected* by changing 5 right-side entries in the Registry-Key

    [HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders]

    to point to non-standard Paths:

     

    Cache (aka TIF-Files)

    Cookies

    Desktop

    Favorites

    History

     

    Especially i changed the default cookies-path on my 1. SystemDrive "D:" from

    "D:\Documents and Settings\David\Cookies" to

    "F:\Temp_D_\David\Cookies\" !!

     

    Similary on my 2. SystemDrive "G:" the cookies-path went from

    "G:\Documents and Settings\Goofy\Cookies" to

    "C:\Temp_G_\Goofy\Cookies\" !!

     

    This method of redirecting certain folders is well documented,

    (e.g. in Microsoft's "TweakUI" offering 16 Redirections).

     

    My defined Redirections _do_ work on my PC since about 9 years

    and they have many advantages being now _outside_ my SystemDrives:

     

    Faster Defragmentions (PerfectDisk7) and smaller Backups (TrueImage7)

    of the SystemDrives that contain the most complex structures on my PC...

     

    Hope you now have the answer you asked for

     

    Thank you

    Hello MrT !

     

    I gave you a detailed answer to your question, see my quote in this posting.

    But i got so far no reaction from you, giving me further advice to solve my cookie problem!

     

    Could you please delete my posting #14 -

    I made a mistake when i created it, so it actually contains _nothing_ after the quote.

     

    Thank You

  6. Hi Pirat,

     

    I meant a snapshot of the Cleaner screen.

     

    1 - Go to Cleaner Screen - the one you use to clean your machine

    2 - right-click "Cookies" under tab Windows and section Internet Explorer

    3 - Select "Analyze"

    4 - Let us know the results of that screen - we are interested in the files listed

     

    You can always use Internet Explorer's Delete Browsing History once to delete these cookies, but please keep in mind that you will lose all your Internet Explorer cookies.

     

    In the CCleaner's Main Window under "CCleaner/Windows/Internet Explorer"

    i right-click the checked item "[v] Cookies" and then i see a contxt-menu

    containing these 3 items:

    slckdwc,

    Can you please post the cookies you can't delete? So we can try to navigate to their site and create the same problem.

     

    pirat,

    Can you please let us know the files present in the results when you analyze IE->Cookies in the Cleaner screen?

     

    Thanks

     

    Hi MrT,

     

    i attached file "My CCleaner Cookies created by IE8 on Drive D.png",

    hoping it is good enough and shows the file names you want to know!

     

    BTW:

    My 2. Partiton "G:" does not have this cookie problem so far,

    maybe because i worked on 1. Partition "D:" at the time i received the 3 unwanted cookies.

     

    thanks,

    pirat

  8. Hello MrT - Official Bug Fixer!

     

    Assuming your posting relates to my first posting here at Piriform (just above your posting)

    my answer for my _all_ 3 problem cookies is:

     

    It is the icon of my _IE8_ (latest Version), _not_ of FF (i don't use) and _not of my G-Chrome!

     

    Can you give me with this information _further_ advice how to get rid of my 3 unwanted cookies?

     

    thanx in advance -

    pirat.

    ------

     

    Update: I corrected my name displayed here in the forum.

  9. This has just started in ver 234.12. I noticed the same instances, In past versions the cookies were always gone upon cleaning....no re-boot necessary so I assumed that there is a bug in new version. I therefore reverted back to 233.1184 and the cookies are gone. I guess we'll have to await another re-version like 234.1201 to correct this. The reboot didnot do it in 234.12. That's whay I reverted.

     

    Win XP Pro-SP3

    was 234.1200

    Now 233.1184

    All cookies, IE and FF

     

    I have nearly the same problem with cookie-cleaning in CCleaner v2.34.1200 !!

     

    My Computer runs XP-SP3 (32-bit) with a dual-boot-configuration (one on Drive D:, the other on Drive G:).

    On both Partitions the same SW is installed, so each servs as a quick emergency backup when the 2nd Partition does not start...

    I regulary backup both system partitions using Acronis TrueImage - at least monthly, sometimes more frequently.

     

    CCleaner (and the rest of Piriform's Progs) reside on an USB-Stick, all are "portable" .zip versions without installer.

     

    Currently i use 2 Browers: IE8 and Chrome (newest Version "6.0.472.0 (Official Build 53024) dev".

     

    For both browsers i defined in CCleaner/Options/Cookies

    (a) about 5-10 cookies to KEEP, and

    (B) all other cookies should be DELETED

    whenever i run "CCleaner.exe /AUTO".

     

    With these settings for CCleaner 2.34.1200 (a) still works as expected -

    but (B) does _not_ work for this version of CCleaner

    while older versions of CCleaner were OK with (B).

     

    More exactly the following happened after i opened CCleaner 2.34.1200 the first time:

     

    1. Under "CCleaner/Options/Cookies/Cookies to delete" i found these 3 entries -

     

    branchenbuch.meinestadt.de

    catalog.update.microsoft.com

    zattoo.com

     

    I do remember that i have visited these sites, but months (zattoo) rsp, years (branchenbuch, catalog) ago!

    But CCleaner 2.33.1184 ( and earlier) did _never_ show these entries, so obviously CCleaner has now a better

    detection method for existing cookies: Good so far...

     

    2. Since my CCleaner is configured with "[v] Cookies" and "[v] Index.dat files" under "Internet Explorer"

    and with "[v] Cookies" and "[v] Internet Cache" under "Google Chrome"

    I expected that the 3 entries (above under "1.") would disappear at least after rebooting:

    FAIL - They still exist, even today after many retries!

     

    3. My Problem now is: I can _not_ find the folder(s) wherein these 3 unwanted cookies reside,

    so i can not try to delete them manually by some method like "renaming and reboot" (google for such solutions).

     

    And worse: CCleaner does not offer an option "open containing folder" for found cookies

    as it does for _other_ found objects to be deleted - SHOULD be added by CCleaner for cookies also !!

     

    4. CCleaner also has _sometimes_ another problem since v2.33.1184 when it _does_ offer "open containing folder" -

    In these cases it displays _shortly_ a message like "can not open /select" (or similar),

    then it does _not_ open the folder, but it finally _does_ delete the object (e.g. a .log file).

     

    When this occurs the next time, i will try make a screenshot of this odd message and post it here.

     

    Hoping that others can report similar problems so CCleaner feels the need to publish a better version.

     

    cheers

    pirat.
