  1. These days Piriform seems to work in mysterious ways. As users we'll keep doing our best to help as best we can.
  2. Good to hear that you got it sorted out, even if you are not sure how.
  3. Mmmm... Like I say I've never seen it other than in screenshots. Did you check the relative sizes of the installed CCleaner.exe (and CCleaner64.exe) on the different machines? C:/Programme files/CCleaner/CCleaner.exe, and C:/Programme files/CCleaner/CCleaner64.exe For example my installed CCleaner64.exe (without quick clean) is 19,168 KB. I would expect one with the quick clean included to be larger, if only because of the extra graphics needed. Unless it's been built into everything and just not enabled on most? We are only users here so don't know just how the de
  4. Can you not just copy the CCleaner.exe files from the laptop to the PC? I regularly just replace CCleaner64.exe (extracted from a new version 'portable') without doing any other installation. I've never had the quick clean beta so can't try it. You could look to see if there are any extra files in the CCleaner directory on the laptop, but I'm betting the feature built into the downloaded .exe file(s). Compare the filesize of the .exe files themselves, if the quick clean is included I suspect the filesize will be larger. Backup the files from the PC first in case you have to
  5. A quick google of "wordpress blog keeps logging out" has many hits showing this is an ongoing issue with Wordpress itself. It's due to Wordpress not recognising your URL correctly. There are quite a few articles about how to fix it. Here's just a couple, one from this month and one from 2015, there are may more. https://mythemeshop.com/blog/wordpress-keeps-logging-out/ https://www.wpbeginner.com/wp-tutorials/how-to-fix-wordpress-keeps-logging-out-problem/
  6. The quick clean is a Beta (experimental) feature, they are currently only putting it out to about 10% of downloads/installations. So you have got one standard installation and one with the experimenta quick clean feature.
  7. Shouldn't this be a complaint to Jazztel rather than Piriform? I guess they are supplying these cheap - because they are blocked. Good luck with that; Facebook thinks my home town is in Scotland and refuses to change it despite many complaints from residents here. (It would take me at least 2 hours on a train to get to the border with Scotland).
  8. TBH, the behaviour you describe sounds more as if you have not ticked the 'Remember Me' when logging into Wordpress, or you are logging out of Wordpress before shutting down. Most Websites/forums will log you out after a time spent inactive if you have not ticked 'Remember Me' when logging in. Some will see you as inactive even when you are typing something into their editor. If you are not changing pages they see you as inactive and log you out. However to be sure it's not CCleaner doing this then- Make sure that you have not ticked cleaning of 'Saved Passwords' for whichev
  9. The bundled installers for Chrome and Avast have been there for years, and have been complained about for years. If you have been using CC for 8+ years you must have come across them before. But it's easy to click,click,click and get caught. I think we've all been caught at one time or another, I once got a Chrome install that was a PITA to remove. Sometimes people complain that they don't see the offer to untick it, that's what happened to me. I'm unsure but I think that may be due to some adblockers blocking the display of the offer?
  10. I think I'll try a replacement battery they're only £10 or so. The images do display full size, but download as well. As I say it's only my own uploaded images, only jpg's, and only on that one forum. Very strange. I might put Firefox in safemode and try it again, and/or see what happens with a different browser. None of this is a serious problem just oddities that seem to have arisen since patch Tuesday when both Windows and Firefox got an update.
  11. The cable is the Samsung one that came with the phone. I've been keeping a closer eye on it. The charging indicator is coming up on the phone, and it is charging if I'm not browsing. So it looks like at certain times I'm draining it faster than its charging. Either the laptop is not putting as much power through the port, I'm downloading more than I used to, or the phone is now taking more power to connect to the mobile mast for some reason. (Maybe they are working on the nearest mast and I'm connecting to one further away?). It may just be time for a new battery for th
  12. From a quick search pfBL.dll is associated with CCleaner. I'm not sure just what it is, but it could be an orphan from the uninstall? ccupdate10.cab Like Hazelnut says I didn't think CCleaner used cab files. However the 'update' may be a clue here. It could be something to do with the CCupdate.exe 'Emergency Updater'. I always delete that now, but again I never saw a cab associated with it. Which brings another thought- Do those machines by any chance have Avast AV on them? Avast AV's include an updater for CCleaner. https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=217752.msg1
  13. Might also be something to do with Adobe Illustrator CC if you have that installed?
  14. Spoke a bit too soon. Today the phone is not charging, but the vape pen is charging using the same lead. Plugged in an external drive (different lead) and that's working fine as well. Scratch-head troubleshooting time. (Is it the phone, is it Windows, maybe it's Samsung Kies interfering somehow?).
  15. Not entirely sure how they work with Win 7. It's been around a long time so that would be a massive Cumulative Update if it included everything for the OS since it was launched? Of course if it's just a CU for ie11 (and only the security patches) then it's not that bad. With Win 10 there is a new version about every six months, and so never much more than six months Cumulative Updates for the whole OS.
  16. A 'Cumulative Update' means that while it includes some earlier updates it will check to see what has already been installed and then only install anything new that you don't already have. eg. For Windows 10 a cumulitive update will include all updates for that particular version (eg. 1803, or 1809) since it was released, but will check and only install any that you don't aready have. It means you are only downloading/installing updates you don't already have. By contrast a 'Simple Update' doesn't check and just installs (re-installs?) everything that is in that update.
  17. ipm-provider.ff.avast.com did used to be whitelisted by default, you could force delete it but it just came back again. It wasn't in 'cookies to keep' it was just that CCleaner would not delete it unless you forced it to. But I believe that they stopped whitelisting it following user complaints about repetitive advertising pop-ups in the Windows notification area. The way it was working at that time was if you had the cookie you got the popup, now it seems to be the other way round? (I suspect deliberately). I was one of the complainers; this is from a couple of months after your
  18. It could be a change to how Chrome is populating the favicons. There was a similar problem with favicons in Firefox a couple of years back following a Firefox update. I believe that it was partly a sqlite database problem and partly to do with where the favicons were being hosted. It took an update to CCleaner to resolve it.

    More about the cookie(s):
  20. The quick clean - that is the name - is a beta (experinental) thing that not everyone had. I never had it but it's just a 'simple' user interface that doesn't show all the settings. The CCleaner programme itself was the same, just with a simple front end. Obviously if you buy pro then you know what you are doing and so don't want a dumbed down user interface and want to see all the settings and options. PS. The simple interfaces call ALL files 'trackers' but they are just cookies, logfiles, and the like. They are not actively tracking anything.

    There is an Avast cookie that CC puts on your system. Among other things it notes that you have seen the popup and not to show it again. It should be in the 'Cookies to keep' by default. If you take it out of cookies to keep it will be deleted when you clean and the popup will come back.
  22. Interesting to see that you also noticed a problem with USB, which later fixed itself. It's hard to tell from the logs, but it does look like on the 14th one of my USB ports was regading everything that I connected as 'idle' and so supplying no power. (Selective suspend mode). Another port has the wireless dongle for my mouse and that was working fine like yours, maybe because it was connected at boot? EDIT checking my laptop specs - the mouse dongle is in a USB2 port, the one with no power was a USB3, maybe that explains the difference. I still think it was the patch Tuesday upd
  23. Yesterday I was tethering through my phone because the broadband was playing up again. (Rural living for you). I noticed that although the tethering was OK the phone was not charging from the laptop as it usually does, in fact it gave me a low battery warning after an hour or so. I plugged in my vape pen with a different lead and that wasn't charging either. (And yes the laptop was plugged into the mains). It was an odd one, data transfer through the port was fine, but not power. I thought I would investigate today why the USB port didn't seem to be putting out any power.
  24. You are not alone there. As this is a Piriform forum it is not acceptable to mention competing software. I will say that I took a good look at why I had CCleaner and wrote my own batch file to clear most of what I wanted. (Browser stuff mainly, it helps if you take a look at what files CC is cleaning). CC is still on my machine for some of it's other tools.
  25. Are you using the registry cleaner? Sometimes these annoying pop-us set a registry value to say 'don't show it again". (Sometimes it's a cookie). If you clear that entry (or cookie) it will pop up again. CC shouldn't clear it's own stuff but it would need one of the devs to check if this is happening by mistake.
