  1. Just to add that whatever defragmenter you use Windows will still run it's own defragmenter/optimiser in the background occasionally, about once a week.
  2. There has been a disconnect between what is reported as found to clean and what is reported as being cleaned for a long while now. It's not just Health Check, Custom Clean does it as well. It has been reported in the past well before Health Check was even thought of. Which suggests that it's something burried deep in old programming that is the glitch. But it isn't as noticable in Custom Clean as it is in Health Check, so we are now seeing more reports of the discrepancy. It's with the developers to look at what is causing it. As far as we can tell from this side, CCleaner is cleaning what it should do, it's just getting the on screen numbers wrong somewhere.
  3. It's called 'Duplicate Finder'. (Not Duplicate deleter). It will find duplicate files, and show you where those duplicates are saved. Duplicate Finder can save you hours of searching, but it can't read your mind. There is no way that any computer programme can know which ones you want to delete and which ones you want to keep. So Duplicate Finder won't do that. You have to look at the results yourself, and decide for yourself if you want to keep something or not. As for the time it took to search that's down to the settings that you specified. Try unticking 'Content' so that it's not searching inside the files. And tick 'Ignore' for System Files, Hidden files etc. - only search for your own files.
  4. Different job is more like it. And it depends how you are using Defragller. All defragmenters work in different ways, and so you can't realy compare one to another. To start with you don't say which Windows version you have. Win10's defrag takes a lot longer than Win7's defrag, - because they do different things. It all depends on what you want your defragmenter to do. Defragment each individual file so that it loads and runs marginally faster? Put all your files together on the disc so that you have more free space? Put all your files together on the disc so that you have more free space, even if it means fragmenting some files? Most users of defraggler use the first one and defragment files rather than defragging the whole disc. With todays terrabyte drives defragmenting a whole disk just takes too long whatever defragmenter you use. (If it's quick then it's skipping things and not telling you it has). Open Defraggler and analyze, when it's done that click on View Files, tick all the files (there's a box at the top of the list) and then click Defrag Checked. That defragments each file without bothering about the rest of the empty disc space.
  5. You have posted in the CCleaner browser section, is your question about the CCleaner browser, or about CCleaner itself? As well as that please say which Windows version you are using, and which antivirus programme you are using.

    Recover SQL

    Sorry I don't know. But if it has recovered and is actualy readable, albeit as binary, then there may be a chance that it will import as a binary to whatever created the database in the first place. Is there a forum for whatever app created the database? If so then that may be the place to ask about importing a binary.

    Recover SQL

    Can you not use the original SQL to make a new backup dump?
  8. 1. Yes they are deleted and cannot be recovered except for the Zedded filenames; as you have found yourself there are no contents. They are 'excellent' in terms that those filenames are 'excellent', - all Zeds but excellent Zeds. That's why they are so small they are just the filenames and each filename has been changed to junk anyway. 2. The MFT will contain references to deleted files that are no longer there, note that in your screenshot it's all old file references from the recycle bin. The MFT may also contain some small files that were written directly to the MFT rather than elswhere on the disc. I think that is what you are seeing here and why they are recoverable. CCleaner can get rid of these after they have been deleted by wiping the MFT Free Space - but it has to wipe the whole of the free space on the disc at the same time which can take ages. Modern drives have become so large, terrabytes, that the time taken to wipe the whole free space becomes prohibitive. Secure Deletion and Disc wiping all comes down to a question of how likely it is that someone will want to recover whatever has been deleted. If I bought or otherwise acquired an old computer or old drive I would have a look if anything had been left behind - not because I wanted to snoop your home videos but because there could be any kind of malware (or something illegal) on there.
  9. Update or reinstall Google Play Services to re-enable it. https://support.google.com/googleplay/answer/9037938?hl=en
  10. I believe that there was a problem with the licencing server a few hours ago. I'm not sure what the server problem was, but it may just have been that CCleaner couldn't contact the server to check your licence and so temporarily ran as the unregistered/trial Pro version. If it happens again please let us know.
  11. As this was previously downoaded software then it's probably easier to simply download the ones you want again.
  12. I believe that when you buy CCleaner Android from the google playstore it knows that you have paid and registers the product for you, so there is no further key/code to enter. (If you download the Free version it knows you haven't paid so doesn't register it).
  13. I'd suggest looking at you McAfee and see if there is any log of it removing/quarantining CCleaner. I'd also try making sure that your McAffee is up to date and maybe making CCleaner an exclusion in McAfee, at least for a while. If you are using MB with McAfee then you'll probably already know how to make exclusions. Whilst it's mostly been Trend Micro that is blocking/removing v5.65, there have also been reports of McAffee doing the same. With both AV's the reports are that if you update the AV then the blocking usually ends, if not then making CCleaner an exclusion in the updated AV does the job. (With TM you have to get the latest 2020 version from their webpage, updating from within the programme isn't enough). Malwarebytes does not seem to be an issue, because it works differently to traditional AV's.

    That's just a blizzard - they have a lot of them in Alaska. Sorry, but without a link we have no idea what/which map you are talking about.
  15. It is a problem with some AntiVirus programmes at the moment. They are not recognising the new version of CCleaner so they are stopping it running or even removing it. (And because of the coronavirus crisis they are short staffed and so it's taking them time to update their whitelists). Which anti virus programme are each of you using?
