  1. I'm not sure why CCleaner is getting stuck there but I would try cleaning the cache from within Chrome itself to see if it clears the blockage. See this for how to do that https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/32050?co=GENIE.Platform%3DDesktop&hl=en I do think/recall that there can be a problem with 'compact database' in Chrome that only Chrome itself can clear.
  2. Is there any indication of what file/category it is sticking on? If you use Custom Clean then it should be written just below the green progress bar. If you use Easy Clean it should be written underneath each of the 2 icons.
  3. That setting is already there - You change it in: Options > Settings > CCleaner Home Screen. Whichever one you pick becomes the default screen you see each time that you open CCleaner. As said above Easy Clean uses it's own rules and will always empty the recycle bin, regardless of what you have set in Custom Clean. If you don't want the bin to be emptied then you must use Custom Clean, and tell it not to empty the bin.
  4. Indeed, but there is a difference between 'do not need' and 'should never be'. TBH I wouldn't defrag an SSD but that's not to say it should never be done. It may have been advisable never to do it when SSDs were a new technology with the number of write operations being low. But I think like a lot of things the technology moves on and the 'wisdom/advice' takes longer to catch up.
  5. Report of the same/similar error here: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/55627-script-error/
  6. This looks to be the same error as one that has already been reported and @Dave CCleaner is looking into it. See this thread: [threads merged]
  7. Most people will say that you should not defrag a SSD only Optimise/trim it, others will say it's OK to defragment a SSD. It's a matter of opinion, with the 'do-not-defrags' in the majority. Windows itself will occassionaly defrag an SSD. (MS says it does it in 'an inteligent' manner). Try having a read of this: https://www.easeus.com/partition-master/defrag-an-ssd.html
  8. Just to note that the name of the official product is CCleaner. (Only two 'Cs' not three). 'CC Cleaner' is the name of a fake disguised to look like the real CCleaner name. Avoid 'CC Cleaner' (with 3 'Cs'). https://www.enigmasoftware.com/cccleaner-removal/
  9. Not since the latest update, TBH the lack of search is not really bothering me at the moment so I'm not making any special efforts to restore it. It was handy for launching regedit, device manager, etc. but there are always the old ways of doing that, just takes a few more clicks. (or I could simply put them on the taskbar). PS. Search in file explorer is still working fine.
  10. Nope it shows up but it's as if it doesn't really exist. If you right click in it then you get the standard taskbar context menu, ctrl+v doesn't work for pasting into it either.
  11. There are different types of PDF files which can be handled differently by software. It may be that the CCleaner browser can save some types but not others? I don't have the CCleaner browser myself, but it may be worth taking a look in your settings. For instance Firefox recognises 5 types of PDF and can handle each type differently: Or you could change things so that PDFs open into something other than the browser, see my previous post.
  12. Dunno, I might give it a go later but I'm in the pub at the minute. Like I say it's not a problem, you can do things another way.
  13. It wasn't, it was hidden. (Of course I couldn't see that before - no taskbar context menus). However turning on the icon or even the searchbox still does nothing other than display them. It won't even let me type anything into the searchbox. Not a great problem, I was mainly reporting that the others had been fixed. I'll see what happens on patch Tuesday.
  14. I just downloaded and installed the optional KB4517211 and it has cured the issue I had with no Taskbar context menus or System tray flyouts, both of those are now working again. It has also cured the issue with finding available wifi networks. Still no 'type to search' on the start menu though.
  15. Yes these are nothing whatsoever to do with CCleaner - Other than the fact that they have 'stolen' the name to try and fool people into thinking they are downloading CCleaner (or whatever other programme name they have chosen to steal/use). What you are actually getting is some malware that is pretending to be something else. They only ever use the names of genuine software that many people will be downloading, to try and fool as many people as they can. This is why you should only download software from the 'official' site(s) for that software, and not from any sharing sites.
  16. This error is usually a problem with a Visual C++ redistributable, (some have also reported that it often happens with a corrupted Chrome browser, usually following an update to Chrome, and reinstalling Chrome fixes it). See this for more info on how to fix it (Method 2): https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-other_settings/windows-10-error-the-application-has-failed-to/5c6a015e-4162-491d-b7d9-f3b13612e304?auth=1

  18. They are not lost, a setting has been changed and you can change it back quite simply. To reassociate your PDF's back to opening with Adobe, or whatever you want to open them with, Right click on any PDF file. Select 'Open With'. Select 'Chose another app'. Select the app you want to use to view PDFs. Tick the box 'Always use this app to open .....' Click 'OK' See the screenshots in this post: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/55455-ccleaner-browser-pdf-files/?tab=comments#comment-310603
  19. After right clicking a PDF file and selecting 'Open with' don't select the programme directly there - instead select 'Chose another app' at the bottom of the menu and then you will be shown the list and the 'Always use this app to open.....' tickbox.
  20. It's in the browser sub-forum so probably related to the browser rather than CCleaner itself? A few more details of just what is happening is probably a good idea though.
  21. It's worth making clear that MS has not 'blacklisted' CCleaner, despite what some of these headlines are implying. MS user forums are simply automatically removing any posted links to www.ccleaner.com. They haven't said why as yet, but many fora put blocks on posting any links at all, or direct download links, etc. Forum mods routinely remove advertising links from their particular forum.
  22. Smacks head; I had forgotten that it's Windows itself that stores those taskbar shortcuts, rather than Chrome storing them. (I'd been assuming this was a change in behaviour brought about by the Chrome version update).
  23. Then it looks as if Google have changed something in Chrome v77. The CCleaner devs will have to work out what has been changed, adjust CC to take account of the changes, and issue an update. For now I'd suggest that you set Chrome to clean it's own history on closing, or use either 'Incognito' mode or the new 'Guest' mode as I suggested above. (PS. I know from experience that Mozilla made some changes this month with Firefox v69 and started saving some things in different directories than previously. I have my own batch file for cleaning Firefox and have had to add some new entries to that after FFx updated to v69.0.1, - CCleaner had already picked up some of those changes which is how I first noticed them when the files still showed up in CC after I had run my own cleaner). The issue of the taskbar not showing the shortcuts that you refer to may be due to Windows last Patch Tuesday. Since that update none of my taskbar icons have a right-click context menu, and none of my system tray icons have flyouts anymore. It's a known issue for some users as a result of KB4515384.
