  1. Surplus information; once you have Edge Chromium then MS will update it automatcally so why look to a 3rd party? It's not been pushed out on Windows Update yet, but was fully RTM on 15th January and is included in new Windows installations since then. If you want it now then you can download it here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/edge?form=MA13DE&OCID=MA13DE
  2. Post moved to 'Hardware' section. To get a missing drive letter back in various circumstances see this: In particular Section 3. "Drive letter missing in Windows Disk Management". https://www.diskpart.com/articles/drive-letter-missing-4125.html
  3. I've just tried it. Copied an image to a different folder, searched for duplicates in CCleaner which found them, then ticked one of the boxes and deleted one of the duplicates using CCleaner. All went exactly as expected. If you could give us more details of what you are doing/seeing, and maybe screenshots, we maybe able to work out what your issue is.
  4. I'm not sure why CCleaner isn't removing it. "Environment Path" is supposed to remove 'Orphaned' path variables, (not empty paths), so maybe some app is still refering to that path meaning that it is not 'orphaned'? Can you not just delete it from the environment variable editor? (Which will of course mean that whatever app is refering to it will not be able to find it, or will recreate it when next run).
  5. This Topic is seven years old. Computers and their operating sytems have changed a lot since then. Please start a new thread if you are having a problem.
  6. If it's an office PC then is it networked and so saving files to a server rather than on it's own hard drive? That's the way it's been in every office I've worked in, all files are saved on to the central server so that all employees can access them, and so they can easily be backed up from one place. Ask your IT/system administrator if there is a backup, any decently run office makes a backup of files at least daily.
  7. Chrome can sometimes be over enthusiastic with that download warning. See here for how to prevent it: https://windowsreport.com/type-of-file-can-harm-computer/ As to why it is flagging ccsetup563.exe: Chrome may just be flagging all '.exe' files that you try to download. But it is partially correct; CCleaner could harm your computer - if you use it incorrectly. So can a lot of other things if you use them incorrectly. CCleaner has a registry cleaner included, and some other advanced tools that you need to be careful when using. If the registry cleaner is used indiscriminately by someone who is not technically experienced, and so doesn't know what they are doing, then it can cause problems with your computer, especially with Windows 10. We advise not to use the registry cleaner with Windows 10. (Unless you are very sure what you are doing). So the warning is just that - It's saying that CCleaner contains some advanced tools and so you need to be careful if using some of the advanced features/tools of CCleaner.
  8. You are new to the forum, (and I'm afraid it shows). You have just replied a 9 years old post, the version of SliTaz being discussed here (v3.0) is well out of date. SliTaz is now at version 5.0. Please check the date when a post was last replied to before adding your own replies. It's shown at the top of every post made.
  9. As you say this is with your phone then I assume that this is CCleaner for Android. Whilst you can make apps and selected cookies 'exceptions' in the regular CCleaner, so that they dont get deleted, unfortunately this 'excluding' is not available in the Android version. The Android version of CCleaner is a bit like the 'EasyClean/Healthcheck' option on the PC - in that it cleans what it does and you have little/no control over just what it clears. (And yes, CCleaner android does clear WhatsApp files). So if it's clearing things that you don't want cleared there is currently only one answer, don't use it. PS. I've moved this into the Android sub-forum.
  10. It can happen now and again that Windows loses track of desktop icons. Have you tried resetting/rebuilding the Windows icon cache? See here for how to do that: https://www.windowscentral.com/how-reset-icon-cache-database-windows-10
  11. That's the pop-up you get when you close the browser. Are you seeing it at other times? To expand on Hazelnut's post: Open CCleaner and go to Options > Smart Cleaning Under 'Enable Automatic Browser Cleaning' you will see your installed browsers listed, with next to them a drop down section for the cleaning choices. You can set a different choice for each of your browsers. The choices are: Do not monitor browser. Prompt me to clean on closing. Automatically clean on closing with notification. Automatically clean on closing without notification. So if you want to clean the browser when you close it but don't want the pop-up then you would select choice #4. If you don't want to clean a particular browser when you close it then select choice #1 If you don't want it to automatically clean any browser then untick 'Enable Automatic Browser Cleaning'. (or select #1 for all browsers). If you don't want it to automatically clean anything at all then untick 'Enable Smart Cleaning'.
  12. At least you know a few things to try if it happens again. Maybe yesterdays storm was messing up the power supply and/or the server connection, so CCleaner couldn't connect to check for updates, etc.?
  13. Is it opening and not doing anything for a while, or just not opening? From what you say I'm guessing the second. There are a few things that could cause a delay at launch: If you are using Winapp2.ini it can be slow to load if you haven't trimmed out the entries not needed on your PC. Your firewall settings may be preventing CCleaner from connecting, we have seen this cause launch delays in the past, (it can also cause issues if you have the new Health Check feature, and with the Software Updater in CC Pro). I have in the past seen an issue where CC was slow to launch if there was a Windows Update that had been downloaded but was awaiting a restart to install. I've also seen the 'Skip' UAC control cause it if switched on. If it's winapp2 then trim it down or remove it altogether. If it's the firewall then making the CCleaner folder an exception in you Anti-Virus (or Windows Defender) usually cures it. If it's a pending Windows Update, then install the update. Never found a real cure for the Skip UAC, but that seemed to be a Windows thing that cured itself. As a workaround if you turn on active monitoring then CCleaner will start in the background with the computer, and so you shouldn't see the delay when you launch it yourself because it's already running.
  14. Whilst I've not seen a comparison chart as such, the documentation does say what CCleaner for MAC will do. The Documentation for each version has a section called 'What it can and can't do". Windows version documentation says that it can find duplicate files, the Mac documentation doesn't https://www.ccleaner.com/docs/ccleaner/introducing-ccleaner/what-it-can-and-cant-do https://www.ccleaner.com/docs/ccleaner-for-mac/introducing-ccleaner-for-mac/what-it-can-and-cant-do There are also plenty of online reviews of CCleaner for MAC, did you not notice that none of them mention the duplicate finder?
  15. The duplicate finder tool is not available in CCleaner for MAC, it's only available in the Windows version.
  16. Sorry, if you can see it in File explored then how does it not exist?
  17. Yes, Edge Chromium cleaning will be included as standard in the next CCleaner update, v5.64. We are told they have been doing a lot of 'nuts & bolts' backround work on all of CCleaners functions, which is why there hasn't been an update for a couple of months. v5.64 is due late February or early March
  18. I'm not saying that its a waste of time turning off fast start-up, FS is known to cause numerous issues. I'm just saying that even with fast start-up turned off Windows 10 still hibernates some of the kernel during a shutdown, and restores it on reboot. It doesn't hibernate all the kernel/RAM like Fast start-up does, but it still hibernates stuff. (It took a while for people to work out that it does this and most articles about turning off fast start-up never mention it, probably because there is nothing you can do to stop it happening). Which is why restart is needed sometimes to do a clean start without that hibernated stuff. (You could also hold down shift when clicking on shutdown to prevent the hibernation, or use the command line to shutdown). As I said it is counter-intuitive that with Win 10 restart clears more than shutdown will, even if you never have fast start-up enabled. This thread seems to point it up nicely, once Cris86 restarted rather than shutting down the issue with a rouge process running was cured. (of course we don't know if FS was enabled or not).
  19. Good to hear you got it sorted out. Hazelnut, In Win10 shutdown still hibernates running apps even if fast startup is disabled. (It's even more confusing if FS is enabled). It's not quite what the old hibernate used to do, it's a kind of hybrid between that and a full stop. If you want to stop everything then you have to do a restart. As I said above it's counter-intuitive to the way that shutdown/restart used to work, and so can cause confusion.
  20. There is no reason why not to use CCleaner with an SSD. The only caveats I can think of off the top of my head are not to use secure deletion, don't tick 'wipe free space' in CustomClean, and don't use the 'Drive wiper' tool. None of those are needed or desirable with a SSD. Edit - And don't use the Registry Cleaner with Windows 10. (SSD or HDD).
  21. As I said above, with Win 10 a shutdown 'hibernates' any running programmes/processes and starts them again at the next boot. You need to do a Restart to actually close any running programmes and processes (so that they won't start again). That is counter-intuitive, but it's the way Win 10 works. So you are saying that Task Manager does not show anything FFx running, but CC says that it is? Strange. I can only think that either something connected to FFx is running but has a name you can't recognise , or FFx has left some file open (or locked) so CC thinks that the whole of FFx is still open. That can happen if Firefox closes unexpectedly. (There is also a slight possibility that your Firefox user profile has become corrupted, but usually that won't let you open Firefox at all and Firefox itself tells you it's already running when you try to open it). When Firefox is behaving strangely extensions or addons are usually the first thing to suspect. First of all I'd try opening and closing Firefox and then Restarting (not shutting down) your computer, then without opening Firefox do an Analyze in CCleaner to see if it still thinks Firefox is open. If CC says it's now closed then open FFX, visit a couple of websites, close FFX, and run a CC analyze again. If CC now says it's still open then it shows that Firefox, or one of the addons, is not closing properly. If something isn't closing properly I'd then try running Firefox in Safe Mode to rule out an extension being the problem. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-using-safe-mode Open Firefox in safe mode, visit a couple of websites, close it again, and do an analyze with CCleaner to see if it thinks it's still open. If CC says it's closed do then it's almost certainly one of the addons causing the problem. If that's the case then you should remove them and put them back one by one until you find which one is the problem. If it's not the addons and it's still not fixed then I'd go for a 'Refresh Firefox'. Note - A refresh will remove your addons (make a note of them first) and put all settings back to default, but it will keep your bookmarks and saved passwords. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/refresh-firefox-reset-add-ons-and-settings Of course there is always the option of uninstalling/reinstalling Firefox, but that's more drastic as it will lose all you bookmarks, and saved passwords.
  22. Odd that I found that other issue as well then. It could well be that there have been other changes to Firefox too. (I'll have a look round and see what I can find) It's also odd that Firefox is running at startup, but if this is Win10 then did you Restart, or Shut down and Reboot? Shut down/reboot hibernates files and processes so would restart firefox. Restart does not hibernate anything and closes them.
  23. I've just done some testing and can confirm that it is happening, and that it's a Firefox change. Firefox has reset the warning message preferences, either during the update to v73.0, or I suspect in the background this weekend. You won't see it if you close Firefox before running CCleaner, or if you only have one tab open in Firefox. It only happens when you have multiple tabs open in Firefox. If you go back into Firefox from the CCleaner hang you will see the following: So CCleaner is trying to close it, but can't until that has been answered. If you untick that 'Warn me...' and then click Close Tabs, (and close the hung CCleaner), then next time you try to clean an open Firefox CCleaner will still ask if you want to close Firefox and if you say yes will close it without hanging. (I previously had that 'Warn me..' unticked, I usually have multiple tabs open. I've had v73.0 since last Wednesday and today is the first time I've seen that message again, so have no idea what changed it but it must be Mozilla). So it's not really a bug in CCleaner it's Firefox resetting a preference, but I'll flag it up for the other Moderators and Staff in case someone else asks about it. (And maybe the CCleaner devs can also do something to stop it from happening).
  24. The filenames (on the right) are identical, what you have arrowed (in the middle) are the pathnames where the files are located. ie. In your first screenshot the first two filles are both called 'bdnc.dll', they are in two different locations. Never remove OS files or programme files, often the duplicates are needed and removing them will stop things working properly. Only ever remove duplicates of photos, videos, music files, text files, etc. - Things that you have saved yourself. If you don't know what a duplicate is then leave it alone. Yes, you have to pick which to remove yourself, only you can decide which of any duplicates you want to keep, CCleaner can't read your mind.
  25. Can you tell us more about the message you are getting? A screen shot if possible 'Aborted' sounds more like something else is stopping CCleaner from running, rather than CCleaner itself.
