  1. Simply use Custom Clean (not Easy Clean) and untick 'Internet History' for that particular browser.
  2. Well I'm sat in the pub at the moment so my beer meter is at an acceptable level, and getting towards 'full'.
  3. I've not used it, is there a 'Disable' option or similar? Hibernate just means 'go to sleep for a while' so you would expect them to wake up again. (At least I would).
  4. As you say Onedrive is cloud based, so it's on Microsoft servers. They are not going to let any third party programme delete things from their servers - it would be a malware writers wet dream. Onedrive also creates some local storage on your computer, but if you delete that it will just be re-synced from the cloud. You can disable Onedrive (and Cortana) altogether, (I have) but that's a bit too technical for a thread here - try Googling it.
  5. Selecting Options>Advanced> Cleaning results level of detail>Advanced report gives a report like this which shows the sections to be cleaned and how many files are in each section: (Note Firefox was skipped because I have it open). Selecting Options>Advanced> Cleaning results level of detail>File List gives a report like this which shows the actual individual files: (There is no number of files, each one is a single file).
  6. If you set that first option then it will automatically show all files when you do an Analyze in Custom Clean. Dave CCleaner has also explained the second 'right click' method in his post, - also take note of what he says about the shortcuts.
  7. There are a couple of ways: You can go to Options>Advanced and select 'File list' for the 'Cleaning results level of detail'. (That will list all files found to clean when you run Ananlze) OR - After running an Analyze right click on one of the categories found and select 'View all files'. (That will show the files to clean in that particular category). Sorry can't screenshot option 2, but here is option 1 showing 'File list' selected: You could further refine it by only Analyzing for Office files to see which ones CC is finding to clean. Use option 1 above then: In the 'Applications' Tab right click on 'Office ####' and select Analyze in the pop-up. (That will only list what files CC finds to clean for that version of Office and nothing else).
  8. It is deliberately meant to be like that, so that you have to think about what you are doing and don't delete the wrong things. Some files, especially some system files (.DLL's and the like) NEED to have duplicates in different locations for your computer to work properly. If you could just delete them without thinking about it then you could very easily break your computer. Unless you are very experienced then you should only use the Duplicate Finder to look for duplicates of things that you have put there - Photos, Videos, Music, Documents, etc. Leave any/all system and program files well alone. And then it's still up to you to decide which you want to remove (if any) and which you want to keep. Nobody else can decide that for you, espically not a program.
  9. The tilde simply makes the expression case sensitive. As * doesn't have a case then the tilde is meaningless unless there are other letter characters present as well. *.* is allowed in a CCleaner include/exclude, but only if you specify the rest of the pathname. (and it isn't a pathname to system files). eg- C:\Program Files\Some-program\Logs\*.* C:\Program Files\Some-program\Temp\*.* Are both perfectly acceptable, and wil delete all files in the specfied directories.
  10. Oh well, it was just a thought as we have seen similar before when a user had unticked some options but EasyClean was still removing them. As dvdbane suggests your best option is to do an Analyze and list the files found to see which relate to Office. (use the Advanced listing). You can then right click anything related to Office and 'Add to Exclude list' then try cleaning again. If that doesn't work then you will need to look at what else CC is finding to remove and work out (exclude them one-by-one) which file deletion is causing the problem. It can be time consuming, especially if more than one file is involved.
  11. Are you running Easy Clean or Custom Clean? Easy Clean uses default cleaning actions set by Piriform, - I'm not sure if that includes Office products by default or not. AFAIK Piriform have not yet published information on just what the Easy Clean defaults are. Easy Clean is not even mentioned in the CCleaner documentation yet. We have seen previously that for unticked boxes to have effect (and so not clean Office?) then you need to Ananlyze/Clean using Custom Clean rather than Easy Clean. ie. Easy Clean does not respect your Custom Clean ticks/unticks, it only uses it's own default settings.
  12. This seems to be a common problem reported by many this week. The software update feature seems to have been released too early, without comprehensive testing. I have no doubt that Piriform (and Filehippo) are looking into it.
  13. Also to note that if your browser is still running (maybe in the background) then CCleaner won't be able to clean it. If that's the case then you should get a pop-up asking if you want to close it. But it is possible to tell it not to show the pop-up again, in which case CC will just skip cleaning the browser without asking you. However if it does skip the browser because it's still running then it will tell you so in the results, like this where it's skipped (most of) Firefox:
  14. Update - this seem to be a problem with the software updater. Another user has reported the same error.
  15. I understand that, but maybe the 'official' Piriform documentation could/should also explain it more prominently. Espically as winapp2 is so popular. As I've said before it's good that Pirifom allow such user customisation, many wouldn't.
  16. Can you give anymore details? I just a couple of hours ago downloaded/installed the slim build on a Windows 10 - 1803 with no problems.
  17. Maybe a note somewhere in the official CC documentation? TBH though most of the Piriform documentation is out of date. I guess it's another thing on the 'to do' list?
  18. As long as those boxes are pre-ticked than as the old song says - "There may be trouble ahead..." I don't see why it should be a big issue to have them unticked, it should just be a simple change to remove the word 'checked' from a couple of lines of the code. Of course, that's if you want to change it - which I guess is down to company policy.
  19. I believe it's the new CCleaner browser doing this when it installs. (By itself?). I saw on another thread that someone had got it when installing the 5.59 CC update. Pre-ticked box issue again maybe? (Or is it doing 'stealth' bundleware again?) PS. Here in the UK being "pissed" has a different meaning. (I'm in the pub now working towards it).
  20. It's a setting in Windows, see this for how to turn it on/off : https://www.thewindowsclub.com/system-restore-disabled-turn-on-system-restore-windows EDIT: Once you have turned it on it will take some days/weeks for Windows to build up a list of restore points. You can manually create one straight away when you turn it on, there is a 'Create' button, see the first screenshot in the link above. Then Windows creates them on a schedule, or when there is a Windows Update, PS. Note that is the free version, Manage Restore points is not only a CC Pro feature it's in the Free version too.
  21. The professional features within the programme will keep working after a year. What you lose if you don't pay again is the ability to get direct support from Piriform by raising a support ticket, and I belive that automatic updates also stop. You can still get support/advice from other users on this forum, just like with the free version, and will still get notification of new versions to install yourself (and they will still be Pro). The registry cleaner is still there in Pro - Don't use it; it is not necessary with modern computers and may even 'break' them, especially Windows 10.
  22. Just to make sure here; Can we assume that "c:\Pogram Files\CCleaner\CCleaner64.exe" is a typo? "The extended attributes are inconsistent" is a Windows Operating System Error, (not CCleaner or Avast) see the following for possible fixes: https://www.thewindowsclub.com/extended-attributes-are-inconsistent EDIT One of the solutions there involves running SFC. You may want to hold off doing that for a couple of days, see this post by Hazelnut -

    I've just taken a look with CC v5.59.7230 (64-bit) on Win 10 1903 and have no problem selecting the drives. Which does suggest to me that it may well be a Win 7 / CC version issue, especially as you are seeing this on multiple Win7 systems.

    It seems odd that it's affecting multiple devices, but you gave me an idea. When I tried before it was with version 5.58 and Win 10 - so it may be a glitch with the 5.59 and Win7? It's known that newer versions of CC can be tempramental on older Windows and some users avoid updating for that reason. I don't have Win7 to try it here, but you could try using an older CC version to see if it cures the issue. You can find previous CC versions on the Filehippo website, they are listed to the right of the CC download page there.
