  1. Sorry but once again you seem to have missed the point of the user complaints in this thread. If they were complaining that they couldn't see/read all the content then your reply would be fine. But they are complaining here that they don't want/need to see all the content all the time - so why won't you let the window be sized smaller than 1010 x 700 if the user wants to do that? Anyone who wants it larger could still resize it as they like - up to the maximum of their display if they want that. It's the lack of user choice that is being complained about. So a better r
  2. I don't think that it's possible with a fusion drive. Presumably you want to erase the drive because you are selling the Mac? I think that your only option would be to split the fusion drive into a SSD and a HDD. That can be done, (and they can be merged again), but that means reformatting the drives each as a seperate drive, so you would wipe everything on there (including the OS) not just the free space. Of course you would need to re-install the OS again. This recent (Feb 2019) article walks you through the process, read the comments as well: https://www.tech-otaku.com/ma
  3. If you look at the free version you will see that some options are clearly markes as being pro options. (Its says 'PRO' next to them with a little padlock symbol). These PRO options are - scheduling, some smart cleaning options, multi-user cleaning, and automatic updates. Once you have paid for PRO then you can use these functions, if you don't need them then the free version will suffice. You also get 1 years support direct from Piriform, with the free version you just come and ask other users here for help.
  4. Avast now own Piriform, they bought it in July 2017. You are not the only person with this problem, but it will need the programmers at Piriform/Avast to work out what is going on and fix it.
  5. There seems to be a lag in v5.54 detecting cookies. I've posted about it in another thread but can't link to it from this phone. Try leaving CC running for a minute or so and seeing if that left hand side populates with the cookies on your computer.
  6. I've just done a bit of quick testing and it seems to be a lag in CC v5.54 detecting the cookies. If I left the window open it did eventually populate the list. As for the warning message - Did you dismiss the warning with a 'Do not show again'? Check in Options>Advanced that "Hide warning Messages" is not ticked. If you have that selected then CC will just skip cleaning of any running (in the background?) browser without giving you the warning.
  7. Interestingly I just took a look at this with 5.54 and initially I was seeing the same blank cookie window. I left it open and without me touching anything it suddenly populated with the cookies after about 10-15 seconds or so. I can see this repeatedly now. Launch CC and immediately go to the cookies. It's blank for about 3 seconds and then populates. I'm guessing that the initial 10-15 second lag was because that was the first launch of CC since booting. So it looks like it's just a lag with 5.54 taking it's time to detect and list the cookies. It may take even longer
  8. From what Piriform have said it's more to do with the new 'dumbed down' features they are introducing. (Or forcing on users, depending on your point of view). I would not be surprised to suddenly find after an update that CC will then only run in full screen mode.
  9. There seems to be a bug with this new feature. I believe the yellow dot indicates that it's a trial (trial = experimental) feature that not everyone gets. You're not the first to report a problem with it.
  10. I'd just close it from maximised and it should remember that. So it will open maximised, you use it to clean, then close it again. TBH you don't need to see anything else when you are cleaning and it's over pretty quickly (usually).
  11. Thinking more about it, It's probably something that Windows creates if/when an application tries to store a cookie as a file. (or maybe just in case something does try). That would make sense of the contents, it's a message meant to be read by whatever is trying to store a cookie as a file. It should probably be ignored by CCleaner, if it bothers you then just add it to the Exclusion list in CCleaner.
  12. That IE cookie is almost always there. (It's actually a file- C:\Users\{username}\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCookies\deprecated.cookie) It's a 'deprecated' cookie, and nobody is quite sure where it comes from. It's obviously something Windows that is creating it, but it can probably be created by more than one process that accesses the internet. A deprecated cookie is a cookie that is no longer valid because it has been replaced with a newer version of that cookie That particular one that CC keeps finding contains the text "Cookies are no longer stored in files.

    v4.00 was released in March 2013, it's 6 years out of date. https://filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/14682/ The latest version is 5.54, there have been many changes since v4.00. (For better or worse). Generally CCleaner cleans temp files, file history, etc. as specified on the Windows or Applications tab. If it's ticked where listed on the tab then it will be cleaned by default. If you want to clean something not listed on the tabs then you can 'Include' it - or use the winapp2 extension that already defines cleaning rules for most applications you will come across. Winapp2 i
  14. What happens if you maximise it? (Click the little square top right of the window). Windows should fit it to the desktop so you can then access the buttons.
  15. My bad, From what Ben said above these error codes are something new in CCleaner, which is why we had never seen them before. As this Software Updater is also something new, and experimental as well, there is not much we as users can advise about it. Other than to say that being experimental there are probably bound to be a few issues with it. There always are issues with new stuff which is why they try it out with a few users first - to see what goes wrong. It will need one of the staff to comment/help you with an experimental feature.
  16. Because everyone prefers seeing an obscure error code rather than a clear indication of what the problem actually is.
  17. I haven't actually counted the pixels, LOL, maybe they made it bigger than the 1010x700 that they previously stated? EDIT- I have now, it's 1010 x 701 when pulled to it's minimum limits on my desktop. Looks like your only option (for now) is to go back to 5.53 or earlier, Andavari has give the link above. (I can get 5.53 down to 786 x 593 pixels).
  18. You should be able to click and hold to 'grab' the middle of the white bar (not the edge) at the top to move the whole window up the screen. Unless your desktop is less than 700 pixels high?
  19. You can still use that to drag it bigger if you want and then drag it back down to the fixed size again, but Piriform have decided that 1010 x 700 pixels is the smallest they will let you make it. I guess it's all to do with the general dumbing down, and less user control, of the UI that they seem to be intent on. And that statement lasted for all of a month before they forced it on everyone, Quick Clean or not.
  20. Can you post a screenshot of the error? And tell us what you are doing when you get the error? That should help someone to recognise just what it is.
  21. Is it CCleaner showing this error code, or is it Windows? Did you use the registry cleaner in CCleaner? (I suspect that you did). Do you have an external drive or something else connected? "Error Code 19" is a Windows registry error relating to connected hardware devices, you usually see it with external drives. You should not use any registry cleaner with Windows 10 (Unless you are very sure just what it is doing). Windows 10 changes all the time and registry cleaners can't keep up and may delete needed registry entries. How to fix it (if it is a hardware connection
  22. I believe he is just misunderstanding what the "Undo Delete" option in the Recycle Bin actually does. (But as you say checking for a corrupt bin wouldn't hurt anything). "Undo Delete" merely moves files out of the bin back to where they were 'deleted' from, but if they've been deleted from the bin then they are gone. (Unless you can get them back with a recovery programme). Maybe Microsoft should rename it to something like "Restore to original location"?
  23. Firstly they are not 'trackers'. For some (marketing) reason CCleaner now calls everything it finds a tracking file on the simple display screen, none of them are trackers they are just temporary files. They are not tracking you. Why do they come back? Some files that CCleaner clears will come back almost immediately. These are files that Windows creates as empty files to put things in later, when you delete them Windows recreates them as empty files. Think of it like someone putting an empty box on your desk for you to put temporary notes in. (Windows makes an empty tempo
  24. It does make quite a difference doesn't it? Here's a comparison screenshot of the minimum sizes of 5.53 and 5.54
  25. I seem to recall a recent answer from one of the Piriform staff that said they were going to increase the minimum size of the user interface. I'll see if I can find it again. EDIT- Here it is from 29th January:
