    Could you give more details? Eg. When you say "follow" that usuallly means follow another users posted content - is that on a specific website or with specific software?
  2. That was timely, I was just doing some testing and uninstalled/reinstalled CCleaner. I realise that you say you hadn't installed again yourself, but this may help show others how it could happen. This is the offer screen that I was refering to above. You can see that if the graphic was missing (as it is in my screenshot above) and you just clicked 'Accept' without seeing what you were Accepting then you would get the browser, and it would set itself as default because you couldn't see that little tickbox to untick it.
  3. I'd never say 100% sure of anything like that. One thing that I will note is that if you installed CCleaner a year ago and hadn't been updating it then it WILL have force updated itself. This has been going on gradually for a couple of months to make sure that everyone who can be is up to date (Win XP/Vista have to stay on old versions): https://support.piriform.com/hc/en-us/articles/360052107891-Why-have-I-been-updated-to-CCleaner-v5-74-#why-have-i-been-updated-to-a-newer-version-of-ccleaner--0-0 We have had previous reports of the Browser 'installing itself'. (I've had a search a
  4. The Browser has probably been installed when you installed/re-installed the new CCleaner version. And although many don't believe it, you probably asked for the browser by mistake not realising that it was being offered. There are a couple of ways I know of that can happen without you realising that you have asked for the Browser to install. The first is from the CCleaner download page - when you see an arrow 'tag' bouncing up and down in the top right corner saying 'Click here to install' that's actually to install the Browser refered to in the banner across the page. (Yes, I
  5. I'm not sure where you are looking but an installed CCleaner is listed in the Windows applications list in Settings (and also in the old style Control Panel) and can be uninstalled from there: It can also be uninstalled from within CCleaner itself:
  6. As Windows 7 is end of life I wouldn't even try updating drivers, new drivers may not have been written/checked for compatibility with Win 7.
  7. Confirmed here, I've pointed the staff to this.
  8. Malwarebytes for Mac will probably be able to remove whatever is causing the redirect: https://www.malwarebytes.com/mac
  9. Can't see the log on this phone but that sounds like it is unable to reach the server(s) needed for the Speed and Security checks. Might just be a temporary issue either with the server or with your AV not recoginsing the new CCleaner version yet and so blocking it. Try updating your AV and see if that fixes it.
  10. You should be OK having a look and or doing a scan, as long as you don't tell it to actually update any drivers. It might update them without problem, but seeing the number of reports we have had here in the last two days I wouldn't risk it. (TBH I wouldn't risk any driver updater anyway).
  11. Download the 'Slim' installer from here (3rd one down) and double click 'ccsetup582_slim.exe' to install it: https://www.ccleaner.com/ccleaner/builds It should pick up your existing licence, but if not and it installs as Free then simply go to Options>About and click on Upgrade to Pro, enter your current licence key in the box, and click register. (You may want to make a note of your licence key from 5.81 before installing 5.82, just in case. It can be found at Options>About>License Information). PS. Once you have 5.82 I'd avoid the new Driver Updater, it's causing serious
  12. It's an intermittent bug that has been going on in every version for a while now. Sometimes each the items is listed in two's, sometimes the whole category is repeated one under the other. Being intermittent, and displaying two different behaviours, it seems to be proving difficult to track down what causes it. Plus as you say it doesn't affect functionality so it's probably not a high priority to fix. We've just got used to ignoring it when it happens.
  13. You cannot set Health Check it will always do it's own thing. If you want to customise what is cleaned or not then you have to use Custom Clean where you can change the settings. You said as much yourself in your first post. If Health Check used the Custom Clean settings then there would be no point in having the two different cleaning methods - Health Check would just be the same as Custom Clean.
  14. SpeechRuntime.exe -ToastNotifier is a new registry entry related to Windows 10 21H1. It's also now used by certaing components of Win 10 20H1 and 20H2. Windows has put it on your computer because it is needed, and if you remove it then Windows will put it straight back. Right click on it and 'Add to exclude list' then CCleaner will ignore it. PS. We recommend that you don't regularly use the Registry Cleaner with Windows 10. Windows 10 changes the registry often which can give false results. See this: https://community.ccleaner.com/topic/59952-i-get-a-registry-error-on-
  15. There was also an update to Firefox yesterday, v89.0.1, don't know if you've got that and if it may also have had an effect? https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/89.0.1/releasenotes/
