  1. Well the 'promise' to allow the default cleaning report style to be modied in the next edition has not happened. Version 5.42 still has the same reporting style as 5.41. So, is it still in the pipeline?
  2. Very interesting reading. Thanks for searching it out. Nice to know I'm not alone and that notice has been taken of the criticisms. I await the next update keenly.
  3. Thanks for the quick response. I did search but clearly didn't find the right keywords. Great to hear that the topic is already under review.
  4. Since I updated to v. 5.41.6446 (64 bit), the results of cleaning are now presented in two blocks, 'Privacy' and 'Junk'. To return to the familiar format that has always appeared spontaneously in the past, I now have to select the button, 'Show Advanced Report'. I have searched settings but can't find any way to restore the old format. Have I missed something? I am using Windows 10 Creators Edition.
  5. Mine has already gone back to 6.5 minutes total with most of that being the Firefox Internet Cache. I am using just one pass in secure deletion. It is true that simple deletion is faster but we all know that simple deletion means the files are marked for overwrite but are still present on the drive until such time as the space is required..
  6. I guess so. The problem is that those pre-ticked boxes slip through so easily and once the unwanted software gets installed it is sometimes very difficult to uninstall completely.
  7. The question that remains is, what happens when it comes to the next update? Does the update file also contain the revenue generating bundle?
  8. To eliminate exceedingly long cleaning cycles, I was advised to install the 'Slim' version and that was successful. When it comes to the next update, is that likely to re-introduce the problem?
  9. After uninstalling Google Chrome, I found that it was still listed in CCleaner apps. I went all through the registry and removed every reference to Google and Chrome but still it persisted. I then carried out a search on the Internet and found a very effective and simple technique that worked for me (Win 8.1 Pro): Just press the Win key + R to open the Run menu. Type: %LOCALAPPDATA%\Google Press Enter Delete the Chrome folder. Reboot the computer and you should find Google Chrome has gone from the list.
  10. I use an SSD anyway and they are supposedly more delicate than HDDs. Thanks for your help guys.
  11. Interesting. I increased the scan security to 3 passes, visited a few web sites with photos and videos, ran CCleaner again and it took 40 seconds. Not bad I think.
  12. I installed the 'slim' version and that sure is fast. Like 5 - 10 seconds. Inevitably, that leaves me asking if it is doing a thorough job. Apart from the name on the installation file, nowhere else does it mention that it is a 'slim' version.
