  1. A few questions: Are you using Health Check or Custom Clean? Which browser? And is it actually deleting the saved passwords - or just logging you out so that you need to login again? (It usally also helps if you say what Windows version/build you have an which antivirus you are using).
  2. Should have gone to Specsavers. Disclaimer - Other high street opticians are available - if not closed due to the plague, driver shortages, gas/CO2 shortages, or all their staff going back to Europe because of Brexit.
  3. I can't read that screenshot, it isn't clear - and the OP doesn't say which entry is being talked about. However I believe that you are both talking about the Toast Notifer "SpeechRuntime". This is known about, and it is not a bug it's just the way that Windows 10 works. See this:
  4. You can whitlist websites that you do not want to be affected by Kamo. See the online documentation: https://support.piriform.com/hc/en-us/articles/360045558192-How-can-I-ensure-that-Kamo-does-not-clear-cookies-from-a-particular-website- Ghostery and Kamo work in different ways. As I understand it Ghostery blocks the trackers, but Kamo doesnt block them and instead feeds them false information. So with Ghostery a tracker can know it's being blocked because it isn't collecting anything, (so may try to collect things a different way), with Kamo it still get something but what it gets is false. Ghostery also blocks ads, as does Adblock - Kamo is not an adblocker. https://support.piriform.com/hc/en-us/articles/360045559792-Does-Kamo-block-ads-
  5. Interesting, I thought that CCleaner called the Windows uninstaller - but EP211 said Kamo wasn't showing in Windows Settings>Apps to uninstall. Kamo has it's own uninstaller in the setup exe - is that just calling the Windows uninstaller? (The more we know about these things the better we can help others).

    Windows 11 ?

    https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/microsoft/microsoft-pc-health-check-adds-detailed-windows-11-compatibility-info/ The tool: https://aka.ms/GetPCHealthCheckApp
  7. The Windows Media Creation Tool formats the USB drive to a partition of about 32GB for a 64-bit installation. - It does warn you that all files on the drive will be deleted and advises you to make a backup of any files on the drive before continuing. Because it's a reformat then that deletion will include the original Windows Master File Table, which is what Recuva normally uses to recover deleted files. The new MFT will only show what is on the newly formatted (approx. 32GB) partition. However you should (may?) be able to find the deleted files on the rest of the drive with a 'Deep Scan' in Wizard mode. https://www.ccleaner.com/docs/recuva/using-recuva/wizard-mode/the-deep-scan-option In particular read the 3 notes there, - you will still have to do some work to rename any files that are recovered. Obviously you need to recover to a different drive to avoid overwriting the data that you are trying to recover. I'm sure that in future you will be making regular backups of your important files, regardless of mistakes a drive could get corrupted or fail at anytime and trying to recover from a broken drive is (almost) impossible.
  8. Thanks for the feedback. I've never used the Driver Updater myself, so never had to use the recovery option, but from the support article I think the tickboxes should be there? That may depend on if you have the latest CC version installed? @Dave CCleaner any insight on this further than what it says in the FAQ article?
  9. As it says in your screenshot "Select any driver to revert it to a previous condition" - you have to first select a driver(s) for restoration before the button becomes active. There should be a tickbox to the left of each driver name. See this article for more info on reverting drivers if something has gone wrong with a driver update: https://support.piriform.com/hc/en-us/articles/4402564268429-I-m-having-a-problem-with-Driver-Updater-What-are-my-options-#updating-drivers-with-driver-updater-0-2 From that article:
  10. @EP211I have split this into it's own thread, so it can be more easily found by anyone else looking for how to uninstall Kamo. Like many (security) apps (antivirus, antiramsomware, etc.) that protect themselves from malware, Kamo cannot be uninstalled in the normal way from Windows. You don't want them to be easily uninstalled by bad guys. So you have to uninstall those apps using a tool from the developers of the software. In the case of Kamo you use the Kamo setup file to uninstall it (I agree that info could be easier to find); see here: https://support.piriform.com/hc/en-us/articles/360048784691-Troubleshooting-when-Kamo-cannot-detect-tracking-activity
  11. Inernet Explorer is (still) an integral part of Windows, and many applications other than the IE browser itself use it's storage spaces. It has become a convinent place for other applications to put temporary files. So even if you never use the Internet Explorer browser it's storage spaces still need cleaning. Because of that CCleaner still lists it and still cleans whatever may be stored in there by any application. (CCleaner itself put 3 files in there everytime that you open it, and then cleans them out again when you tell it to clean). ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Inernet Explorer è (ancora) una parte integrante di Windows e molte applicazioni diverse dal browser IE stesso utilizzano i suoi spazi di archiviazione. È diventato un luogo conveniente per altre applicazioni per inserire file temporanei. Quindi, anche se non usi mai il browser Internet Explorer, gli spazi di archiviazione devono comunque essere puliti. Per questo motivo CCleaner lo elenca ancora e pulisce ancora tutto ciò che può essere memorizzato lì da qualsiasi applicazione. (CCleaner stesso mette 3 file lì dentro ogni volta che lo apri, e poi li pulisce di nuovo quando gli dici di pulire).
  12. As you say who knows just what caused the problem for you, but good to hear it was fairly easily sorted out by using the Slim installer. I'm guessing something glitched during the automatic update and left things in limbo until you did a re-install with the Slim installer. It probably won't ever happen to you again. As for the different installers: The CCleaner that gets installed is exactly the same; it's the installers themselves which are different. The Standard installer contains a bundled offer for other products which you can accept or decline, it connects to another server to show that offer. Some AV's object to that extra connection and so block the install altogether. Some AV's are erratic about if they block it or not. Although you wouldn't normally get the offer anyway on an automatic update, or from a 'Check for Updates', you should only see it if you are installing manually The Slim installer is intended for technicians and advanced users, it works slightly differently (and doesn't include any offer), so it doesn't try to connect to another server. Because it works slightly differently we often suggest trying it when people are having problems the Standard installer. You might want to bookmark that 'Builds' page for future use? TBH using the Standard installer while not connected to the internet achieves the same thing, in that case it knows there is no internet so doesn't try to show the offer. One other thing; but as you have Malwarebytes I'm positive this wasn't your issue. Certain AV's are notoriously slow to update and so will block a new CCleaner version from running for a few days after it is released, once the AV gets an update it recognises the new CCleaner and stops blocking it. (We saw quite a bit of that when some AVs were being even slower to update as people worked at home during covid).
  13. TBH Willy it is only you that is reporting it. I'm not sure if that's because it's specific to your particular (email) setup? or if maybe others see it but aren't bothered by it. (It's easy enough to delete an extra email).
  14. Normally that is a sign that your anivirus is stopping CCleaner from running. (It will often run the first time from the installer but then not again as the AV blocks it). But I've never known Malwarebytes to block CCleaner. Just to double check, you are not running Malwarebytes side-by-side with another AV? It is interesting that you say that you can download/install from the bundle site but not from elsewhere. This may have already been suggested by support, but try downloading the 'Slim' installer from here (3rd one down) and see if that will install and run. https://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/builds Of even more interest is that you say this started 5 days ago, which is the day that the update to CCleaner v5.85 was released. Can you remember if you had Automatic Updates turned on in CCleaners Options>Updates? We haven't had any other reports here of such problems with v5.85, but all computers are different and someone has to be first to report something odd. To see if it is the 5.85 update causing your issue you could roll back and try reinstalling v5.84. I'd do the install while not connected to the internet, so that it doesn't automatically update itself to v5.85 again. If v5.84 installs and runs offline then turn off automatic updating before reconnecting to the internet and checking that it still runs when connected. You can download the v5.84 installer here: https://download.ccleaner.com/ccsetup584.exe If 5.84 runs for you but 5.85 doesn't then do come back and let us know, the developers will be interested in finding out why.
  15. On the contrary, if the problem stops when you stop using the VPN then it is clearly the VPN causing the problem by blocking the needed connection(s). If you can't drive your car down a road because of a barrier you blame the barrier not the car. Remove the barrier (turn off the VPN) and you can get through.
