  1. http://forum.piriform.com/index.php?showtopic=46040&hl= This seems to be a new problem since the DF update last month?
  2. You may want to consider getting one-to-one help from one of the dedicated virus/malware removal sites. These guys are experts at helping you scan for and remove any nasties infecting your computer and/or network. Once you start working with one you must follow their instructions and see the process through to the end. Best of all they do it for free. Here are links to a couple of the best of them, there are others, only use one at any time: https://forums.malwarebytes.org/topic/9573-im-infected-what-do-i-do-now/ http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/22/virus-trojan-spyware-and-malware-removal-logs/
  3. Would you like to expand on that? Why are you saying it is not compatible with Win 10? Your own experience? Please give more details. Something you have read? What and where? I've had no problems with Defraggler and Win10, what problems are you having?
  4. So updating another company's file/registry cleaner is now giving you an error when running Ccleaner on startup. Do you not think that the problem may just be because of the one you updated, rather than blaming Ccleaner? Have you got both scheduled to run at startup and they are clashing? That error message about the task object version is related to incorrect registry entries for scheduled tasks. Try googling it for various solutions.
  5. I think it depends on which version you are downloading (Free, Full, Slim, Portable), where about in the world you are, and how busy the servers are. I have never been sent to Filehippo for a Ccleaner update, but have been for Defraggler. Most software houses have relationships with 'mirror' download sites in case the main site is unavailable (to you) for some reason. If the main download server is busy or unavailable you will be redirected to the primary mirror download server. Filehippo is one of the popular ones. I believe that in some countries/geographic areas you may get directed to the mirror as a first option, because it has a better and/or faster connection than going to the main site (or maybe because the main site does not have a server in that country).
  6. Theres one way to find out, defrag again and see what happens. You know how to get the associations back if they do get lost. I would suspect it's Win10 64 bit throwing a wobbler with your particular machine. I also have Win10 64 and have not had that problem, but did have a problem a few months ago where Win10 kept resetting all my desktop icons to blank generic ones. Did my head in for a couple of weeks, I would rebuild the icon cache only for it to be back to blank icons the next day. Then we had a Windows Patch Tuesday and the problem was gone, showing it was Windows and not anything that I was running.
  7. Although a search does seem to show that screenshot is from a legit programme, I would be very wary that you have not downloaded a hacked copy that may be doing something else in the background. Stealing your passwords and banking details as it scans your system, encrypting all your files, etc. Ransomware that encrypts your files has become a major problem in the last few months. As Nergal says your provider would NEVER send you an email like that. If someone has sent you an email pretending to be your provider that should make you instantly suspicious. I would follow the advice and get one of the sites recommended in his first link to check your computer for infection ASAP if not sooner.
  8. Very strange, What the h*** are you doing to mess up your registry that much all the time? Its not usual to see any registry issues unless you have recently uninstalled something. Unless you are just seeing the issues and not fixing them? You may want to visit one of the free malware cleanup help sites to check out that you have not been infected. Here is one that gives one-to-one help for free ( there are others). https://forums.malwarebytes.org/topic/9573-im-infected-what-do-i-do-now/ Here is another- take your choice; but only pick one, and stay with that one until the helper gives you the all clear. http://www.techie7.com/threads/read-this-first-important-instructions-updated-4-28-2013.68933/
  9. A bit harsh there nergal. Those comments are on topic, are relevant, and explain why passwords in IE or Edge can get deleted even when you have set Ccleaner not to. Which was what the OP was asking. IE and Edge are entangled. In post #3 Hector_the_invincible also noted: Which again shows this entanglement between IE and Edge.
  10. Yes. Edge is supposed to eventually replace Internet Explorer. However it was not full ready when Win 10 was released so IE was included with Win 10 as well. Edge is still a work in progress (some would still call it a Beta version) although less techy users don't realise this . This is why Piriform and others are still having problems with it, it's a moving target. Further complicated by the fact that Edge and IE often make use of the same files, especially temporary files, so you can't regard them seperately when cleaning. (Oh, and the desktop File Explorer and One Drive also use some of the same files). I just ignore them and use Firefox.
  11. I had just noticed this earlier today. Apparently it's a tool, not a plug-in. It's still in testing, hence the Beta designation. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-hello-video-and-voice-conversations-online I do remember something being mentioned about it from a few FFx upgrades ago, but didn't realise it had automatically been installed. Will need to read more about it, although I doubt I'll be using it anytime soon. Edit If you go to the hamburger menu and select '+ Customise' you will see a smiley face icon for it that you can drag to the toolbar (if it's not on the tool bar already).
  12. So it does, isn't that interesting. That big Upgrade button turned up with free desktop version 5.14.5493, it wasn't there in previous versions.
  13. They used to be but not any more, see the attachment. It's important to be careful to make a distinction between UPDATES and UPGRADES. UPDATE - Get the latest version with fixes, improvements and changes. UPGRADE - Get a paid for version with extra features and options.
  14. Odd, my touchpad is an ELAN and it works fine. (not that I use it much, I prefer to plug a mouse in). Although I do seem to remember that after the initial upgrade to 10 the settings had changed to 'no delay' and I had to go and put them back again. Kept catching it with the ball of my thumb when typing and the cursor would jump out of the current window. I just set the delay back to Medium and have not had a problem with it since.
  15. Iowa, It will depend if you are doing it as an upgrade from 8.1 and keeping you existing software and data, or if you are doing a full wipe of the system and an complete new install of Win10 from an ISO. Obviously a full wipe and reinstall will loose everythig already on your system and you have to start from scratch. Doing the upgrade from 8.1 via the Windows Updates keeps it all. I use Firefox and all my bookmarks, saved passwords, etc. were still there after the upgrade. (But of course make backups just in case). Willy2 does raise a concern about drivers, but I believe this is a hangover from the first version of Win 10 that was released to market. In particular NVIDIA graphics drivers on custom systems with 2 drivers and/or dual screens (gaming machines) were hit by Microsoft installing generic NVIDIA drivers during the upgrade. This caused a big fuss at the time but has now been sorted out. PS. Once you have upgraded to 10 you can turn off driver updates from MS so they wont mess with your drivers at all; but then you have to check and keep them up to date yourself. Swings and Roundabouts. http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/stop-automatic-driver-updates-windows-10
  16. It wasn't complicated at all when I did it from 8.1 to 10, I did it when 10 was frist released to market last year, and I have had no problems then or since. I didn't to a full reinstall, just upgraded from 8.1 and told it to keep all my existing data. Mine was a new machine though, only six months old. Just clicked for the upgrade and away it went, if I remember there were a couple of restarts but that was all. I seem to rember it taking about 2 hours over my (admittedly very slow, rural area, about 2.4 Mbps) wifi connection. If you have an ethernet cable. or faster wifi, it should be much quicker. If you have 8.1 you probably already have a Microsoft account which makes it easier as things just migrate across. Take the usual precautions- Backup all your data before upgrading. Make a win 8.1 recovery drive on a USB stick, just in case you want to go back. (Make a note of your win 8.1 product key. Although I believe the new upgrade process (to Win10 1511) keeps the same key, the earlier one gave you a new key for Win 10). If you are more techy then maybe make a full mirror of your current system (just in case, etc.) Like any OS upgrade once installed it takes a bit of setting up to just how you want it, you will find plenty of advice online.
  17. Sorry I was missunderstanding you, I thought you wanted the French not English. Here is a link to setting languages to keep a Mac http://www.piriform.com/docs/ccleaner-for-mac/ccleaner-for-mac-settings/setting-which-languages-to-keep It appears that the Mac OSx will clear out any languages you have not selected, just leaving you with the PCs default language. You may need to reinstall CCleaner to get them back again.
  18. So what is the main problem? You only mention the translation errors in your post. If there are more than the one you mentioned then a list may help the developers to correct them. Are you are refering to not having a dropdown menu (and other options) as show in in the article? That is simply because the article shows the options for the Windows version. The Mac version has different options. (Because it's a different operating system).
  19. It must be an typo error in the Mac version. If you change the language in the Windows (Free) version 'About' is translated to 'A propos'.
  20. Hi merlin, You are going to have to give some more information before anyone can work out just what you are seeing. To start with: What OS are you using? (Xp, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, 10). Where are the duplicates found? (Say you have just updated to 10, or if Microsoft has prepared your computer for an OS update, then there will be a lot of duplicate system files on the C:/ for a while). If you only point to one folder then I would expect that it will only check for duplicates in that folder, it won't check if the files are duplicated elsewhere.
  21. Yes you can,see the image in post #64 http://forum.piriform.com/index.php?showtopic=44723&p=268018 You just can't use all the options. Nice to hear that the update seems to have sorted the problem for you.
  22. If you go to the piriform download page here: (which is where the upgrade notification in CCleaner Free links to). https://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download?upgrade and click on the download button for the Free version it takes you straight to Filehippo to make the download.
  23. Anyone remember the 2007 TISP (Toilet Internet Service Provider) from google? https://archive.google.com/tisp/install.html
  24. Could be the insider fast ring for the public (not developers)? That ring was launched on October 21, 2014, with Win 10 insider build 9860.
  25. Had a similar post (not CCleaner) on another forum last week. His was shutting down 'randomly'. Turned out to be a backup programme, running in the background, that he had set to start on boot and shut down after completion.
