  1. That's your choice of course. You may be interested in the latest thinking on the registry cleaner from the CCleaner team: https://community.ccleaner.com/topic/59952-i-get-a-registry-error-on-ccleaner-on-windows-10-i-have-scanned-5-times/?tab=comments#comment-326804
  2. 'Us' is computer users in general, or at least those users who know about the registry. Did you actually read that Microsoft article? Deleting leftover entries after an uninstall is one of the valid uses for a registry cleaner, but unless they are very unusual then they are not slowing down your machine and can be left there. Anyone who claims that a registry cleaner will free up space and/or speed up your computer is telling porkies. It may have helped with Win 7 or earlier but things move on.
  3. Again - That registry entry "SpeechRuntimetime.exe" is new to Windows and is needed by Windows, which is why Windows keeps putting it back if you remove it. It is nothing to do with anything that you may have uninstalled, it is a part of Windows. See this for more info on what it is, (and why you shouldn't be using the registry cleaner with Windows 10 unless you have a problem to fix). See also the post by Dave CCleaner which follows that one and explains CCleaner's current policy on using the Registry Cleaner. https://community.ccleaner.com/topic/59952-i-get-a-registry-error-
  4. @DPlaat Keep coming back to the forum to see answers. You can also set up notifications to email you when there is an answer, if you need help with that ask and we can cover it. That registry entry is new and is needed by Windows, which is why Windows keeps putting it back if you remove it.

  5. In your particular case this may be something different/new. It may be due to recent changes in Edge Chromium. Check if you have 'Startup Boost' enabled, (edge://settings/system) and try turning it off if you have.
  6. That already happens too. It's called Winapp2.ini and is hosted on this forum and github. It adds cleaning for most applications out there to CCleaner's Custom Clean menus and is updated reguarly. https://community.ccleaner.com/topic/32310-winapp2ini-additions/?tab=comments#comment-175835
  7. The 'Trackers' in Health Check are not what you are thinking of as 'Trackers'. It is just a catch-all name that Health Check uses for Cookies, Browser History, and Temporary Internet Files. - Things that have 'tracked' what you have done whilst browsing. So your browser history is a 'tracker' from that point of view. You can see what 'Trackers' actually are if you click on 'Privacy after running Health Check's analyze, but before 'Make it Better'. So if you wanted to keep the History but clean Cookies and Temporary Files then you could untick history like I have here - the proble
  8. That's normal. A defragmenter has to read file fragments from the disc, process the information into unfragmented pieces, then write files back to the disc in one piece. Then it will read some more file fragments, process them, write them back, and so on until it has finished defragmenting. So the disc will not be actively being read from the whole time, a lot of the time will be CPU processing then writing back the files and checking they have written back OK. You should see that when the disk is not being read from/written to the CPU usage increases as it processes what it h
  9. Yes, the advice is that you should leave it alone. It is needed by Windows, which is why Windows keeps putting it back if you remove it. See this for more info on what it is, (and why you shouldn't be using the registry cleaner with Windows 10 unless you have a problem to fix).

  10. Open the Start Menu and on the left click on the 'All Apps' symbol (4 small boxes and lines) to show the list of all installed apps. Scroll down the list to find Microsoft Contacts and right-click on it; in the menu that pops up select 'Pin to Start'. Once it's pinned to the Start you can right-click it to change the size of the icon, etc.
  11. The icon appearing briefly at startup (and the brush flashing on and off when cleaning) and then dissapearing once the clean has completed is what is supposed to happen if you have selected 'Launch the CCleaner app each time the computer starts' in Options>Settings. The icon remaining in the tray (not flashing) is what is supposed to happen if you have either, or both: 'Keep CCleaner Automatically updated' selected in Options>Updates. if you have any part of Smart Cleaning enabled. So the question is what do you have those 3 things set to? It's Windows that actua
  12. If CCleaner has cleaned your browser history then you might have had a chance it you tried to recover it immediately after cleaning. But from a week ago I wouldn't give much chance at all, and probably wouldn't even try myself. If you haven't used your computer all week and haven't opened the browser all week then maybe you have a chance.
  13. This issue has been flagged up to the staff for investigation/response.
  14. Did you use the registry cleaner in CCleaner? If so it has removed a group policy from the registry. Did you backup the changes when the registry cleaner asked you to? If so then you can restore it - Right-click on the .REG file that was created created and select 'Merge'. By default the reg file will have been saved into your 'My Documents' folder. If you didn't make the backup then you will need to reset the browser settings, or import the registry entry from another computer. See this Microsoft article, sorry it's in English: Haben Sie den Registry Cleaner in CCleaner v
  15. As Nergal says that sounds like Smart Cleaning is periodically cleaning the junk that is building up on your system. Go to Options>Smart Cleaning and untick these 2 boxes (do the lower one first) to stop it doing that: At the moment CCleaner should also be asking you if you want to close the browser or not before cleaning, or be skipping cleaning the browser automatically if you have set it not to warn you - but doing the above and turning Smart Cleaning off is easiest. Do you have CCleaner Free or CCleaner Pro? If you have CCleaner Pro and you want to leave Smart Clean
