  1. The fact it says 'Skipped' tells you that Chrome, or one of it's components, is still active in the background. CCleaner cannot clean applications that are still active, files that are open are protected from deletion by Windows itself. Try fix #2 here: If you also have your Chrome synced then anything you clear will be resynced from the cloud and just reappear again, in that case you also need fix #1 from the above.
  2. Yes, you can specify it as an 'Include', but you must know the filename and path of the actual file that you need to remove. You can't just specify the application name and expect CC to know what bits to clean and what to keep. https://www.ccleaner.com/docs/ccleaner/using-ccleaner/including-files-and-folders-for-cleaning Alternatively you could use winapp2.ini which has cleaning rules for most applications out there. It's a bit of an advanced use option though.
  3. 'Undo Delete' does not restore files that you have deleted from the bin. It is a recycle bin option that puts files that you have put into the bin (deleted from Windows Explorer) back onto your hard drive. ie. It is an undo of the Windows Explorer delete. Once you 'Empty recycle bin' they are no longer there to put back. Similarly if you use CCleaner to empty the bin then the files are no longer there to put back.
  4. It might sound tempting to have a remote, cloud based, OS. No need to be constantly updating your machine for a start. Of course your devices would still need some processing power if only for high end graphics and displays for some of the top games and other 3D graphics applications. But it would be the end of 'Personal Computing' as we know it. Everyone would have the same version of whatever OS they prefered. (Like Win 10 was supposed to work, but hasn't yet). There would obviously be limits as to what you could tweak for yourself, language settings, some display options, t
  5. Always good to help others when you can. I assume the baked thermal grease and excessive dust is an Aussie problem? Over here it's more likely to be damp and condensation that's causing problems
  6. I'm not sure why you think that Windows 10 is 'purely cloud base for storage'? I use Win 10 quite happily without a Microsoft account, I was conned into signing up when I first Upgraded to Win 10 but subsequently deleted it. You can install Win 10 without signing up for a MS account. But it's a semi-hidden 'advanced' option in the installation - because they want you to have one. I've disabled Windows OneDrive so it's not syncing my files, and definitely wouldn't store my data anywhere in the cloud. (OK, my emails are saved on my domain providers server). I am aware that some n
  7. I'm with Andavari. For the few things I still want CC for: I cleared everything out of the C:/Program Files/CCleaner/ folder except for- CCleaner 64.exe and uninst.exe (I also cleared the lang and setup folders and left them empty, but could probably junk those as well). When there's an update I just extract the new CCleaner64.exe from the portable and replace the old version. TBH I took a long look at just why I was using CC in the first place, and it was mainly for browser cleaning and a few others like recent file lists. So I wrote my own batch file to do those, runs in less
  8. I'm not sure how the licence works with Autocad 2019, (last I used was Acad 2010), but it sounds as if it may now be storing your login in a cookie which CCleaner is then deleting. Try the following: Do a clean with CCleaner. Open and log into your Autocad 2019, and close it again without doing anything else. Go back to CCleaner and look at Options>Cookies to see what cookies Autodesk have put on your computer. Select those and move them over to 'cookies to keep'. Now do a clean with CCleaner again, and see if it still removes your Autocad login. If th
  9. These days Piriform seems to work in mysterious ways. As users we'll keep doing our best to help as best we can.
  10. Good to hear that you got it sorted out, even if you are not sure how.
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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/
  14. 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.
  15. 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).
  16. 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
  17. 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?
  18. 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.
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. Might also be something to do with Adobe Illustrator CC if you have that installed?
  22. 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?).
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
  25. 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
