  1. I found this script at Windows Central for creating a restore point in Windows 10 by clicking a desktop icon. https://www.windowscentral.com/how-create-system-restore-point-windows-10-simple-double-click Just tried it on my laptop, Win 10 home 64-bit, v1709, build 16299.309, so latest build. It created a restore point with the name 'My Shortcut Restore Point". (You could change that in the script if you want something else). Being in a command window it does not show what it is doing until it's finished which can take a while. It leaves the command window open so that you
  2. The update to 59.0.1 once again broke my taskbar icon and link. Managed to unpin it without a restart this time and repinned it from file explorer. However it was then showing with the name "Firefox(3)" which indicated that the previous 2 were still about somewhere. Trying to change the name of the taskbar link in properties just asked me if I wanted to create Firefox(4). So the solution: Unpin firefox from the taskbar. Open file explorer and go to: %AppData%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar Delete all instances of the Firefox
  3. Do you have your PC synced to a cloud account (or to another device) that is just re-syncing/restoring the files as soon as, or shortly after, you delete them? Try turning of syncing, (to be sure disconnect from the internet/wifi/bluetooth), then running CCleaner back to back. If my guess is right then CCleaner will remove them - but as soon as you resync/reconnect the files will reappear again.
  4. Junkware Removal Tool used to create a Windows restore point before scanning/cleaning so coding for that is possible. Unfortunately JRT has officially been discontinued. (I still use JRT now and again to easily create a restore point).
  5. Probably why you don't see that opion then, ESR dose not have the latest features and improvements. Anyway, enought of that. This is a thread about Internet Explorer not Firefox. Apologies for the hijack Willy2.
  6. Hi trium, I think the one I gave is a new option in FFx v59.0. ?? If you still have v58 then you may not see it.
  7. I've been getting this for a while now with Firefox which also has an 'Active Content' filter. As well as here it happens with any IP-board based forum that I visit, so it would seem to be the underlying Invision forum software. (Doesn't happen with vBulletin or Xenforo based forums). I've not yet found a way to turn this annoying notification off. EDIT I've found the setting to stop these pop ups in Firefox. (Sorry can't help for IE but I'm guessing there will be a similar one). Options > Privacy & Security > scroll down to permissions and select No
  8. Add those sites to your 'Cookies to keep' list in Options>Cookies.
  9. I also noticed it with Edge, it seems to be the 'History' in both Edge and IE. (I already had it unchecked for IE). If you never use Edge or IE then there will be no history so you can untick them to speed CCleaner up again. PS. You can always right click on any unticked items to do a one off check/clean of just that item.
  10. The Update to v59.0 broke my taskbar link (and icon) for Firefox. I had to restart the PC before I could unpin the old taskbar link and create a new one. Another heads up - but it won't affect many people. There is a conflict between Malwarebytes Anti Exploit stand alone beta v and Firefox - The full Malwarebytes 3 is not affected, it uses an earlier version of the anti-exploit. It started showing after the latest Windows Cumulative Update, so the Windows OS itself may be involved. Both Mozilla and Malwarebytes are aware of the issue. The conflict affects the o
  11. I'm not having a go at you personally Stephen, but: Quite simple - Don't send us these unwanted sales messages at all, as you say we are not interested in them, no cookies needed then. I also regard it as underhand/sneaky that this was included in the update but there is no mention of it whatsoever in the release notes. Adding undocumented 'features' is typical of adware/junkware - this seems to be the direction CCleaner is heading since Avast acquired it. PS. At least I didn't get an offer of Avast with this installer, so that is one promise that has been kept - If
  12. If you are Dumbing Down the UI for 'non technical' users then why have you not yet removed the large button to the 'technical' registry cleaning process? For a few years now, regular members have been suggesting that you do this (or at least make registry backups automatic before fixing) to deter non-technical users from blindly running the reg cleaner and then coming here complaining that CCleaner has broken their machine. Style changes to UI's happen, and there are always those who prefered the old style - and I'm also one in this case. But you can still see that old style, if
  13. It's a known PUP "CC Cleaner", it's nothing to do with Piriform. https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-cc-cleaner
  14. Moving things about and zipping them sound more like some kind of ransomware activity, rather than a virus per-se. If you have done a full 'clean' reinstall (delete all files) then you should be good to go. But remember if you did pick up some malware then it got past your current protection, so could well do so again. Be careful where you visit and what you download. Consider getting a malware scanning programme from a different supplier than your current one, so that you can do a periodic scan to give a second opinion and check for anything your real time protection may
  15. CCleaner is not about malware removal. CCleaner is primarily used for clearing out unwanted cookies (eg. tracking/location cookies) and other temporary files. Most call it CrapCleaner, it cleans away the crap. (Although some, less poetic, souls call it CookieCleaner). It also has other useful tools and features. Take care when using these other tools that you know what you are doing, and don't just blithely run them. Be especially wary of the Registry Clener, you shouldn't realy use it unless you know what you are doing, it can 'break' your machine if used indiscriminately - al
  16. That is not normal behaviour for Windows 10. If things are moving and being zipped like you say then it suggests a malware infection. Due to forum rules, we can't give advice on malware removal, see rule 10 in this link for where to get free help checking your system for malware and getting it removed. https://forum.piriform.com/announcement/15-forum-rules/
  17. Presumably you could just copy/reload the clipart files from disc(s) rather than reinstalling everything? OR You could take the time to try and recover the clipart files, and if (probably when if you have been using the disc for 2 months) not sucessful then get them from disc. Seems faster to me just to reload the clipart from disc.
  18. Have you asked Malwarebytes? If you have the paid version you can raise a support ticket Directly with them. If you are using the free version (or the paid for) then you can get advice at their user forum, including step by step help from one of their malware removal experts to make sure that your machine is cleaned completely. https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/9573-im-infected-what-do-i-do-now/
  19. Why not put the portable version on a USB stick and carry that around to the various PCs rather than installing on each PC? As it is the free version that you would be running then I don't see any problem with the licencing. (Otherwise why make a portable version at all?) If you made your PRO version portable (yes it can be done) then licencing would become an issue.
  20. Further to the Malwarebytes add-on for Firefox: They have made available a new version, 1.0.9. It has a better user interface with a few more options, but obviously not finished yet. It's still a beta/experimental product . You can get it here if you want to give it a go: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/malwarebytes/ There is a thread on the Malwarebytes forum where you can read a bit more about it and give feedback: https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/218383-malwarebytes-extension-for-firefox/
  21. Yes I'm running Defender on Win 10 and theres no problem here (UK), it's showing the regular installer, the portable, and the slim. I've noticed some connection and linking problems on other sites in the last couple of days though, maybe something big is going on that hasn't hit the headlines yet?.
  22. It could be that they have changed the way the login page accepts passwords so that you are forced to type them, quite a few sites are doing this recently for added security. Take a read of this that I posted on another thread yesterday:
  23. You should check if it is actually Ccleaner that is doing this, especially if it seems to be with more than one browser, and even more especially as you say some of your passwords are saved. It is becoming more common for sites that require a login to block auto-completion of the password field (and sometimes the name field as well) for security reasons. They also log you out automatically after a period of inactivity, again for security. Some sites that used to allow auto-completion are changing to now require the password to be typed in. So even if you have the password save
  24. Honorable of BradB52 and TaxPreper to admit that the offer and tickbox was there, but that they had missed seeing it. I suspect that this is the case with the majority of the complaints seen about unwanted installs. Which makes it harder to track down if/when there is a genuine problem, such as the delay that prompted me to start this thread. Whatever you think about bundled installers they are a fact of life and you need to take care to carefully read any installer, for any programme, before clciking the install button. I don't think that the Avast offer with CCleaner i
