  1. I assume so, it occurred just as I was logging on to my computer, and CCleaner is set to clean at startup…
  2. @Ben Piriform I just sent a crash report. I used the same email address as here so you can identify me.
  3. I'm using Windows Defender, the built-in anti-malware protection. No other resident protection. If you need more specific info, don't hesitate to ask.
  4. Yes I do. It's been enabled ever since that setting became available.
  5. It worked. Fortunately I didn't have too many non-default settings… Thanks!
  6. Hello, CCleaner free version (latest version) will not clean Edge's cache unless all instances of Edge (even the hidden ones) are terminated. It displays a dialog to that effect, and there's a checkbox "don't ask again", which I checked. I believed it would set CCleaner to terminate Edge automatically without asking, but instead it now simply ignores it. How do I reset this so it asks again? Thanks!
  7. Hello, Using Windows 10 Professional build 17744 (Insider preview, slow ring) and CCleaner free edition 5.46.6652. I have the same problem: CCleaner is set to clean on startup, but doesn't actually do anything. Every other function appears to work well. Great program!
  8. Totally agree. Please add an option to display the old report format instead of the new one.
  9. What's wrong with the current double-click? I mean, right-click then clicking on "run" or double-clicking the icon like any other application's is the same number of clicks, so what would the advantage be?
  10. You can if you open an instance of Explorer as the machine's administrator (right-click, "Open as?").
  11. Not Alan_B here, but yes, it's a simple matter of moving the icon to the public Start menu. Under XP, the public "all programs" menu is in "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start menu\Programs". Under Vista and Win7, it's in "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start menu\Programs", and "ProgramData" is a hidden folder, so you'll need to first set Explorer to display hidden files and folders. The private Start menu is under "C:\Documents and Settings\{your login}\Start menu\Programs" for XP, and under "C:\Users\{your login}\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start menu\Programs" for Vista and Win7. "AppData" is also a hidden folder. In order for the proper permissions to be set for the shortcut, you should first copy it to its public location, then delete it from its original private one. When you move a file, it keeps its full set of original permissions, which may not be appropriate.
  12. An automatic updater could be included along the lines of the one in VLC (another excellent freeware): when a new version is detected, it opens a pop-up to tell you about it, and it offers to download and install it in stride – or just download it for later installation if you so wish.
