  1. It's a question that gets asked now and again. The 'cleans everywhere' means that the pro version can clean all user accounts on a machine. The free version (and some other programmes) can only clean the one account it is used from.
  2. Cheers Stephen, You've probably seen that I've added over there that it's the removal of database file 'permissions.sqlite' that seems to be the problem. It's only in their latest beta version, v1.0.21, that the issue arose, which suggests that it's something that they changed in that version. Clicking 'remove' then 'undo' to breifly stop then re-enable the extension, (which takes less than a second), in the Forefox add-ons manager cures it. Both of which suggest that coding a solution may not be that difficult. (Although of course I don't know the code). If they can reload
  3. There you go, I'll leave it at that for a while. (Apart from going and putting it on MBAM as well - no I won't, I forgot that avatar editing has been blocked on MBAM except for higher groups).
  4. Well the MBAM forums got the Invision update earlier and seem to have sorted out more of the problems. They also don't have that cropping thing when you load a new avatar image, I think it's that that cause the problem here. My avatar here is slightly different, and you may note that I've played some more and animated this one. TBH The MBAM one may animate even better, I'll give it a try.
  5. Not sure what you are meaning there, but my Apps for websites shows 2 entries for maps and one for Edge, and those are all turned off. I've been working on padding the white space around my favourite avatar images and seeing if the forum will then accept them without cropping too much. Edit - That's better.
  6. They are are little glitches, just about what you expect when coders are working in a rush. You tend to miss/forget little details. PS. Do you like my new avatar? (The old one didn't fit properly in the circle, this one's better but still not quite right, I may have to play a bit more).
  7. I suspect that you are looking at the Windows tab, which shows Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer browsers. Other browsers you may have installed, Chrome, Firefox, etc. are shown on the 'Applications' tab.
  8. Well the black screen for a second or so during games came back and is worse, it happens more than once now and seemingly randomly. It's not a great problem once you know that it only affects games and that it's only going to last a second. Although it still makes you wonder every time it happens if it is going to come back. There are a few strange non-critical oddities with 1803. For instance Settings tells me at times that "These settings are controlled by your organisation" (or similar wording). That's a message you see on Windows 10 Enterprise or Pro editions - but this lapto
  9. That sounds as if Thundebird is still running (maybe as a background task?). CCleaner can't clean applications that are open/running so it skips them. Task Manager should show you if it is running in the background, and you can force it to close from there. You don't say what OS you have, if it's Windows 10 try taking a look at: Settings > Privacy > Background apps
  10. Nope I don't have that, probably because I caught things before Avast actually installed. (And didn't use the Uninstall Utility, which I believe can also leave it behind). The only thing on my laptop that even mentions Avast in the name is a screenshoot I of the CC installer, and that I named myself. More, "official", information about what Avast Overseer is can be found here, especially note the posts from 'drake127' who says he was one of the key authors: https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=210028.0 In his first post he says: So he admits they released/installed
  11. So it finally happened. Today I've been trying to track down a software clash, part of which involved installing different versions of CCleaner. I was using different CC installer versions that I have saved on my laptop. Having finished my testing I noticed an orange blob on my desktop, I've been Avast-d for the first time ever. The icon has the name "avast_free_antivirus_setup_online" Looking in Apps & features (and in the old style Control Panel) Avast is not showing as an installed application. It's not showing in the task manager, but looking in CCleaner there was
  12. For anyone using the Malwarbytes for Firefox (beta) extension. There currently seems to be a clash with CCleaner and the Malwarebytes beta extension for Firefox, this clash is somehow triggering the extension to block the downloading of installation (.exe) files if CCleaner has been run to clear Firefox. It only seems to be affecting the downloading of .exe files, - documents and media files download normally. It's easily fixed by opening the Firefox Add-ons manager, clicking 'Remove' for the extension, and then clicking on 'undo'. The Malwarebytes devs have been looking at
  13. Well the etymology is latin so it goes back a while. It's used in a few different contexts now, even nuclear engineering.
  14. Comes as a shock doesn't it? I realised earlier this year that I'd been moderating (elsewhere) since 2008, so must have been a member there (for a couple of years) before that. (Changed my username when I started modding and can't track it back without admin permissions). Makes you wonder who was the first ever moderator? Tim Berners Lee must have shouted at a few colleagues, but the internet was going before the WWW.
  15. From the Knowledge Base notes: https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/help/4103721/windows-10-update-kb4103721 So the black screen issue may have been patched. I've got the update to .48 downloaded now and just need a restart.
  16. I also play as a guest, I don't even have a MS account anymore. I may try resetting/reinstalling the Solitaire Collection from Settings > apps Interestingly though I have build 17134.1, maybe they have patched it in .48 ?
  17. I've also noticed that the Solitaire Collection has changed where it saves game scores/statistics in 1803. I had this as an 'include' in CCleaner to delete them and start from fresh every time. This 'include' had stopped working with 1803 so I had to track the new filename/location down. If you use a local account to log into your computer (I do) the statistics file can now be found at, and easily deleted from: C:\Users\{yourusername}\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftSolitaireCollection_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalState\savegame\Guest\statistic\statistic.sgi {yourusern
  18. I've found an odd glitch in Win10 1803. It happens when you are playing a game from the inbuilt Microsoft Solitaire Collection. After about 3 minutes of play the screen will go totally black for 1/2 to 3 seconds before coming back again. It only seems to affect games, and only happens the once in each session, and then all is fine until the next reboot. I've seen it happen with Spider, Free Cell, and Pyramid. I'm not sure if it affects any other games; it would seem to be a graphics issue? Still a bit of an 'Oh, B*****' moment the first few times it happens, (then yo
  19. We have discussed this in another thread. (Sorry can't link it from this phone). It's the new, unliked by many, results display. It reports everything found to clean as a "tracking file/cookie". Most people would not regard these as "tracking" in the general malware sense of the word. (That would be keyloggers, location trackers, and such). But if you want to stretch a point for advertising purposes then every cookie, logfile, etc. has 'tracked' something that you did. It's just advertising speak
  20. You can stick with an older version, it just won't clean everything 'junk' that new browser versions and Windows versions save. (Because they change what and where they save things). Remember that this is a junk cleaner not an anti-malware. CCleaner cleans unneeded temporary files and other junk NOT viruses. You need an anti-virus /anti-malware for that.
  21. Sorry to go missing for a bit (disability is playing up, no great problem). I still suspect it's an Edge/Windows problem, especially if you have put 1803 on. Microsoft change things and leave everyone to try and work out what they have done and catch up.
  22. That sounds as if running Edges own cleaning routine is closing down whatever it was that caused CC to say it was still running. So that's a result even if we still don't know exactly what it was. As an extra I would run a scan with Malwarebytes, ADWcleaner, or a similar adware/tracking detection program, just to make sure that it's not an unwanted tracker that was left running. Either of those will find any potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) and remove them if you choose to.
  23. Welcome to the fun of trying to find out what the **** is going on inside your computer. (It sounds like you are on your way to learning more about it). Sometimes you can find it, sometimes you just have to work around it. (Computer Logic is not always logical once humans get their hands on it). Unless it is stopping you from working it's best to treat it like a puzzle game. If you like puzzles you will spend time trying to track it down, if you don't like then you will just get frustrated. Who needs to buy an overpriced game when you have this stuff to tax your mind?
  24. That would be the easiest if you can't be too bothered tracking down what else may be opening Edge in the background. As I said above you could uncheck all Edge items, and right click each unticked item to do a manual analyise/clean once in a while, or if you have used Edge. (And if there are files found on a manual analyze/clean that could point to what is using it).
  25. TBH I'm not sure at all, I'm only suggesting what I would try in your shoes. If anyone else has suggestions please feel free to jump in with them. You could try the testing below, or if you can't be bothered with the testing then it may be time to consider rolling back CCleaner a version to see if that works. You can download previous versions from filehippo, look on the right of this page: https://filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/ You could try turning off the weather tile, restarting the computer, and running CCleaner analyze to see if that makes a difference. (You can always
