  1. Which again points to the fact that it is something related to Chrome that has been 'broken'. If it was something in Windows then it would affect Firefox too. Have you tried the fixes for Chrome SSL errors in that latest link? Other options: Did you make a backup when the registry cleaner asked you to? Do you have a system restore point from before you ran the Registry Cleaner?
  2. I note that above you mentioned using a VPN. Do you still have the issue if you don't use the VPN? Here are some more things to try (including simply telling Chrome to ignore SSL errors, not very secure but ...) https://techcult.com/fix-ssl-certificate-error-google-chrome/
  3. As I suspected the error is "CERT_DATE_INVALID", saying that the SSL is out of date. However I visited your link (in Firefox) and on checking the sites certificate it is in date. So, and especially as you are getting the same error on other sites, it's an issue with the Chrome on your machine. It has probably been caused by using the Registry Cleaner, - You should not use any Registry Cleaner with Windows 10 (or 8, or 11) unless it's for a specific reason, see here for the CCleaners advice: 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 Obviously the first thing to check is that your system date and time is correct. Sometimes the little CMOS battery inside your computer runs out so it can't keep the time/date when turned off. There are steps here for trying to fix SSL problems in Chrome: https://www.ssls.com/blog/how-to-fix-google-chrome-ssl-certificate-errors-in-a-few-simple-steps/ TBH though I suspect that you will need to update, restore, reset, or even uninstall/reinstall Chrome to fix the registry entries for it. (In the worst cases of a damaged registry you may need to repair Windows itself). https://www.wikihow.com/Repair-Google-Chrome
  4. Glad you found the cause. (Good testing) That "Network Passwords" option is unselected by default (and Health Check's rules wouldn't include it for cleaning) so it shouldn't bother anyone who doesn't tick it themselves in Custom Clean. Still the information may be of help to others, so I'll change the thead title so that anyone who is having the same problem can find it more easily.
  5. Can you post a screenshot/clip of one of the messages you are getting about the SSL? Preferably showing the URL of the site being blocked. SSL certificate do need to renewed now and again and some websites are tardy about that. Whilst some browsers will still display them, other are more strict and will block a site with an out of date, or otherwise 'faulty', SSL. (Although if you are seeing multiple SSL issues with different sites then there may be another cause). Is this happening for ALL websites or just some? Another important question - Did you use the Registry Cleaner tool in CCleaner?
  6. How do you think that CCleaner could be used in an attack? I can think of one possible (not probable) way in which an advanced user who knows what they are doing and who already has access to your computer might possibly use CCleaner to delete files that CCleaner wouldn't normally touch. But it is not something that someone would do accidentally. (Although never say never, it would take a number of specific steps to do) I haven't tried it to delete system files as a non-admin user, but it may be possible. However if sombody malicious already has physical access to your computer then you have bigger problems. If you don't trust someone then don't let them use your computer. And if they are not physically sat at your computer (hacked in) then they already have elevated access anyway.
  7. You must enter the name exactly as it was registered. (People have been known to misspell their own name when registering). It is best to copy and paste it from your confirmation email. For more on problems when registering see the link below: If still having problems, you can use the 'Contact us' button there to contact support. Debe ingresar el nombre exactamente como fue registrado. (Se sabe que las personas escriben mal su propio nombre al registrarse). Es mejor copiarlo y pegarlo desde su correo electrónico de confirmación. Para obtener más información sobre los problemas al registrarse, consulte el enlace a continuación: Si aún tiene problemas, puede usar el botón 'Contáctenos' allí para comunicarse con el soporte. https://support.piriform.com/hc/en-us/articles/204043844-How-to-register-and-activate-CCleaner-Professional#if-you-get-an-error-saying-that-your-license-key-is-not-valid--0-9
  8. That may be because Chrome has changed where it saves cookies and 5.85 didn't look at the new location? I know from my own experience that is the case with Firefox, CCleaner 58.6 can clear some new cookie locations that 5.85 or older didn't look at. (Because cookies weren't put there before). The browsers keep changing where they put things, CCleaner changes to keep up. Just why those particular cookies keep coming back for you is another question though. CCleaner 5.86 is obviously finding them to clear, they just keep coming back after it has cleared them. Maybe another Google app (rather than Chrome itself) is putting them back?
  9. For a browser it is clearing 'Session' that removes the currently-logged-in, open tab, etc. information. I'm not familiar with Google Drive, but I don't think it has it's own section in CCleaners Custom Clean? Are you using the winapp2.ini addition by any chance, I believe that Google Drive is included there. If you are not using winapp2 then I'd try unticking 'Session' for Chrome as a first step. (They may well be sharing the same file locations). PS. Are the logins still cleared if you use Health Check instead of Custom Clean?
  10. You've had a similar issue before. https://community.ccleaner.com/topic/58382-ccleaner-v5677763-64-bit-not-cleaning-all-google-chrome-cookies/?tab=comments#comment-320184 Try reading again the link I gave there that explains why cookies (and other things) can/will come back after cleaning. (The first thing I'd look at is do you have Chrome synced. Or have you had it synced at some time in the past?) TBH the first 3 sites on your list could be considered 'dodgy' websites by many. ie. not exactly safe to visit and/or download things from. Are you using those sites or have they just appeared? Either way you may want to run scans with ADWCleaner and Malwarbytes to see if they find any PUPs/PUMs, or anything else of concern, on your machine. https://www.malwarebytes.com/adwcleaner https://www.malwarebytes.com/mwb-download
  11. It's useful information anyway, so I'll just edit it a little and move it to the Windows Security forum.
  12. And as I showed you in a screenshot - even if that happens the option is still greyed out and not applicable for a non-admin user. When I created that new user I didn't reinstall CCleaner, it was my same CCleaner with 'Skip UAC' selected and active for the Admin user but greyed out, unselected, unselectable, and unusable for the non-admin user. You seem to be trying to make an issue where one does not exist. Trying to suggest that somehow CCleaner can give a non-admin user elevated permissions to do whatever they want on your cmputer? CCleaner can't do that. PS. I also never said that UAC had no effect, obviously it does.
  13. Irfanview (google it) seems to be more tolerant of damaged files and can often open images that other apps can't. Previous users have had success opening recovered/damaged files in the past. If Irfanview can open them then a 'Save As' from Irfanview will usually correct them so the other apps can also then open them. If Irfanview can't open them then you may need to give more details of (one of) the recovered files so that someone more familiar with Recuva than I am can say if what has been recovered may be fixable.
  14. Which is why UAC asks a non-admin user to enter an admin username and password - to temporarily use admin rights for that task, and only for that task. Some apps that can modify the system and settings allow you to choose to skip the UAC for that particular app but still using it for everything else. For those particular apps it's up to you to as an admin user to decide if you want the UAC security on or not for that particular app. As you rightly say a non-admin user should not have that choice, see below. Some apps, such as antivirus/antimalware apps bypass UAC as standard and don't give you a choice, you wouldn't want the AV/AM not launching just because a non-admin user couldn't supply an admin password. I know of at least one security app (Malwarebytes) that doesn't ask for UAC confirmation when it starts - but needs UAC confirmation if you want to stop it running. That's to prevent non-admin users from turning off the antimalware protection. In the end UAC is a tool - it's (mostly) your choice as an admin user if you use that tool or not. To answer your original concern about a non-admin user getting elevated privileges by ticking 'Skip UAC' in CCleaner, - a non-admin user can't do that. As you can see in this screenshot for a non-admin user the option is greyed out and unselectable: (And yes, I usually just have an admin account and had to create a new non-admin account to get the screenshot). PS. I did see your report/request but there is nothing wrong there and the posts can stand as they are
  15. You have not answered the question from @Dave CCleaner about where you purchased CCleaner?
