  1. Well, there are two options - you can either just keep ignoring it altogether - or try to work out what is causing it to crash and fix it. PS. Looking about the web you are not the only one having this particular problem with Edge Chromium. Before suggesting things to try let's go back to basics with a few questions, Can you tell us which version and build of Windows 10 you are running? You can find that in Settings>System>About. And which antivirus/version you are using if it isn't Windows Defender. Are you using a Microsoft Account to log into Windows, or a Local Account? Is this the old Edge or Edge Chromium? (It should be Edge Chromium but it's always possible that you may still have the old one). You can tell by the icon, Edge Chromium icon looks like my screenshot in the Apps & Features screenshot above. Old Edge looks more like an 'e'. Have you added any extensions/add-ons to Edge? Have you set a 'Homepage' for Edge rather than it's standard homepage?
  2. As Hazelnut suggests, a repair will reinstall Edge which should fix any problems with the currently installation.
  3. Just close it using the X in the top right of the window, pause it first if you like. I don't take much notice of predicted time-to-go in any app; they can be wildly out. (Even Windows updates jump from 0% to 100% in seconds). How big is the disc? TB discs can take a long time to do a full disc defrag. In Defraggler after doing an analyse click 'view files' then the tickbox at the top of the list, then 'defrag checked'. That defragments the files and is quicker than a disc defrag.
  4. Edge is built into Windows as you have read. If you don't want to use it then just ignore it and use your own choice of browser, lots of us do. But why do you say 'unable to use it'? Is that just a preference or is it not working?
  5. The posted link to rts.ch is also http and not https. Are these old bookmarks in your browser(s) on that machine? That's one way that can happen. If that is the case then you need to navigate to the sites and resave the bookmarks (or you could edit the bookmarks to say https:). And I'd check any/all bookmarks on that machine for both browsers.
  6. "Cleaning" does not always mean removal, although some files will be totally removed. But it also happens that CCleaner will delete/remove certain files to clear the data they contain, and then the operating system will immediately recreate them as empty files of the same size. So the junk has been cleaned out but the file is still there and still the same size taking up the same space. Or to put it another way the space has been emptied, or the space 'saved' so you can use it again, but the container for that space is still there and still the same size. Think of it like emptying a drawer full (or even only half full) of old letters - the rubish has gone and the space can be used again, but the drawer is still there and still taking up the same space. Iit's now just waiting to be filled up with more letters again (until next time you empty it).
  7. @salbai62thanks for posting that error code. The error code is a server error indicating that there is a problem with a Site Security Licence, usually it's just because the SSL is out of date and needs renewing. (SSLs renewal dates are easily overlooked and you'll often see SSL errors when browsing the web). So it looks like the problem is not at your end but at a server end. @Dave CCleaneris the SSL for the licence/registration server OK?
  8. Is that a site that Kamo is not letting you access?
  9. That's your choice, and the easiest way to stop the notifications. But you should be aware that whatever is causing Edge to open/close every 5 minutes like that will still be happening; you just won't have CCleaner telling you about it. Whatever is causing the odd behaviour with Edge may also give you other odd problems elsewhere. (Or Edge may just fix itself with the next Windows cumulative update?) If/when you have time it may be worth looking at those fixes for Edge in the link I gave, just to be on the safe(er) side. PS. The issue with the screenshot attachment being in the wrong post (my post instead of yours) is a bug in the software that the forum runs on. I've also seen it happen on another forum (Malwarebytes Forum) that runs on the same forum software. It's very unusual, but something that the makers of the forum software will have to look at.
  10. @jqa2003 I assume that's your screenshot of the notification that wouldn't post for you? At least we can see it now, For some reason it seems to have now attached itself to the bottom of my latest post, and my latest screenshot has also repeated itself. The forum software occasionally works in mysterious ways. I'll leave them where they are for now, I don't want to edit that post further while I ask the Forum Administrator take a look at what happened.
  11. That's good, so you have all your browsers set to clean when closed, and to notify you that the cleaning has been done. You have two options; We can keep working to try and find out why your Edge Chromium is constantly opening and closing on your machine. (That could be a fault in Edge itself, or another Microsoft app that is opening/closing Edge on a schedule, or a bit of both). You can ignore that it's happening and simply tell CCleaner not to give you any notification about Edge Chromium being closed. (That doesn't cure what is causing it to keep opening/closing but stops ccleaner telling/nagging you about it). If you choose the second one then on that screen where it says "Automatically clean on closing with notification" next to Edge Chromium click the little down-arrow. You can then choose from: "Automatically clean on closing without notification" - Smart Cleaning will keep cleaning it (every time it closes) but won't give you the notification. "Disabled" - Smart Cleaning will not keep cleaning it. You'll need to run CCleaner manually to clean it. (The other 3 options there will all give you a notification about something). Agian: Note that if you use one of those option you are not stopping whatever keeps opening/closing Edge Chromium, you are just telling CCleaner not to tell you about it. Now as to what is the cause of the problem, you last post may give a clue: That could indicate that Edge is trying to load in the background when you start your machine, but is crashing for some reason. That isn't so unusual and you can try some of the fixes here: Note that the first thing it tells you to do is run CCleaner, I think you can safely say you've already done that, - but do 'Restart' your machine before trying any of the other fixes. Note - that's a "Restart" (Click the Windows Start icon, click Power, click Restart) and not a Shutdown. Then try the other fixes one at a time, checking after each one to see if Edge is now behaving itself. https://windows101tricks.com/microsoft-edge-closes-immediately/
  12. The thread where you originally posted this was from 2 years ago, and was about the 'Software Updater'. (There wasn't a Driver Updater at that time). You also have a different error code to the one there. (Error 91613 is a new code to us users). However I do note from your screenshot that you have CCleaner Free version. To actually update the drivers you have to have a CCleaner Pro licence. CCleaner is just showing you the wrong message, and should instead be saying that you need a Pro licence to update drivers. I'll flag it up to the staff that the wrong message is being shown to you. EDIT: They are aware and will be changing the message, probably in the next CCleaner update.
  13. The Bundled licences can be used on both PC and MAC. However CCleaner for Android has to have a different licence, which need to be purchased through the Google Play Store. It's all to do with how Google make money. Les licences groupées peuvent être utilisées sur PC et MAC. Cependant, CCleaner pour Android doit avoir une licence différente, qui doit être achetée via le Google Play Store. Tout dépend de la façon dont Google gagne de l'argent.
  14. I got caught when first upgrading to Win 10 and signed up for a MS account, not quite compulsory but they made it bloody difficult not to. As @crizal suggests I soon switched it to a local account, and deleted the MS account. Did you know it takes six months to delete a MS account? Whilst they nag you to change your mind and keep it. Just like XP and 7, Windows 10 will continue in use well after it's EOL, as long as the machines keep working. Maybe COP26 should have a blast at Microsofts policy making lots of perfectly usable kit 'obsolete'? Lots of kit will be junked as users buy new kit that supports Win 11, and the environmental impact of manufacturing that new kit will not be negligible. Perhaps of more concern, lots of the old kit will be burnt on bonfires in India/Africa to extract the copper, aluminium, gold and other metals in there, it already happens. https://www.wired.co.uk/article/ghana-ewaste-dump-electronics Lots of burning plastic, and 'exotic' materials used in the chips, putting all kinds of toxic fumes into the atmosphere.
  15. Look at the things highlighted in blue. In your screenshot it's "Options" and "Settings". in my screenshot it's "Options" and "Smart Cleaning".
  16. Assuming that this is CCleaner on your PC, (and not CCleaner for Android on your phone). Firstly you need to use 'Custom Clean' and not 'Health Check'. (You can't change what Health Check cleans). Next: If you are using an email client (Outlook, Thunderbird, etc) you need to 'Exclude' the email clients app from being cleaned by Custom Clean. If you are accessing your email through a browser (webmail) then you will need to make sure that Custom Clean is not clearing 'Saved Passwords' and/or 'Session' for that browser. (Untick them for that browser). In both cases you should also set Custom Clean to 'Exclude' any cookies being used by the email. Maybe easier, but less secure: You could check your email client/webpage login to see if you can turn the 2 Factor Authentication text messaging off, but of course doing that leaves your email account less secure. (And you would still need to login each time, but that's more secure than staying logged in all the time). TBH there is not much point in having 2FA enabled if you are going to stay logged in all the time anyway. (Although there is a reason for doing that it's less than half the point of using 2FA). A point to note is that for security/privacy reasons certain apps do not allow you to stay logged in, often email, banking, utility accounts, etc. They will automatically log you out after a certain time inactive. So you have to login to them everytime you use them, using 2FA (text message) if you have it enabled.
  17. CCleaner does not do that. CCleaner is a junk cleaner, with a few other maintenance tools. It's more likely your antivirus/antimalware that is blocking a programme from making changes. CCleaner is not an antivirus and can't block other programmes. Having noted that: OLB most commonly stands for 'Online Bible' - Why a Bible would be trying to change files could be a worry. There are a couple of backup apps that include a file named OLBPre.exe which is commonly linked to Adware, so your AV may have seen that. Check your Antivirus logs and 'un-quarantine'/whitelist the app if you still want to risk it. Otherwise uninstall that backup app and choose a more reliable one.
  18. Sorry but that's the wrong page, the Smart Cleaning like this: PS. You can use 'alt+prt scr' to screenshot just the active window rather than the full screen. Or use 'Snip & Sketch' from the Start menu to caputre a smaller area like I did there, once you've captured a snip you can paste it straight into your post. If you could also capture the notification that you are seeing then that should help us see just what is causing it.
  19. Could you give us a screenshot of your Smart Cleaning settings?
  20. As Edge is now Chromium based this sounds like some mix up between Edge chromium and Chrome itself. My thinking is that Edge is leaving something running (or restarting something) in the background that opening Chrome itself then closes again; thus giving the message that Edge has closed (again). Could you tell us if you have any extensions/add-ons/plug-ins enabled in Edge? And then any in Chrome? PS. Those notifications can be turned off - but it's better to find what is causing them and stop that from causing them in the first place.
  21. It often takes a day or two to add the remaining time on, they say up to 15 days but that is unusual. Plus today is a Bank Holiday here in the UK so that could cause a delay. Having said that it will not be added automatically if you had more than 90 days left on the old licence, if you are that early it's assumed you are buying a second licence. Although that should not apply here. If the time remaining hasn't updated in a couple of days then drop an email to support@ccleaner.com and they will make sure that the remaining time gets adjusted.
  22. We recommend that you don't regularly use the Registry Cleaner with Windows 10, only use it if you have a specific problem. Windows 10 changes the registry often which can give false results. For the official Piriform advice on using the Registry Cleaner see this: And here is Microsofts stance on using any Registry Cleaner: https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/help/2563254/microsoft-support-policy-for-the-use-of-registry-cleaning-utilities
  23. Purge the recycle bin, the steps given here should do the job, the command actually removes the bin so that Windows creates a new one:
  24. Google and Youtube are owned by the same company and so they have control over it. In fact it goes deeper than just cookies: https://support.google.com/accounts/thread/4382937/how-do-i-stop-google-from-automatically-signing-me-into-youtube-when-i-sign-into-my-gmail?hl=en Which actually points the way - I never sign into Google (except on my phone when I need something from the playstore) and so don't see Youtube cookies unless I've actually been on Youtube. But I use Firefox as my browser; I guess it may be more difficult to use Chrome without logging into your Google account.
  25. Did you read the second post above? When you are defragmenting (consolidating) a whole disc it always means that your files will be more fragmented. I'll try to explain it a bit deeper: It depends just how you have run the defrag. There are 2 different methods depending on what results you are looking to get and by default Defraggler does a combination of both, - but it can be set to do either/or. The issue is that the word 'Defragmenting' is inaccurately used to mean two different things, two things which are mutually exclusive. Getting each file into one contiguous piece, rather than split across clusters. (So that they load marginally faster). Getting all the files into as small a storage space as possible. (To give more free clusters on the disc). The first is 'Defragmenting' and means that some clusters on the disc will inevitably have some unused space. The second is correctly termed 'Consolidation', and means fragmenting some files to 'pack them all in' to the available clusters. So Consolidation may/will leave each file more fragmented than it was before, but the disc as a whole is less fragmented. (ie. with most of the white space in one piece). TBH Consolidation is rarely needed these days, drives are big enough that it's not needed. But people like to see it on the chart displayed, they like to see big blocks of colour with no white 'holes'. Consolidation also takes much longer, especially on todays (multi) TB drives - simply because they are big drives. You are probably not short of space on a TB drive, so those in the know do a 'Files only' defragment which is the quicker option to use. So you can have all your files in one piece each, or have them packed into the smallest disc space by splitting some up. - You can't have both, and which you choose depends on what you want to do. Defraggler does a combination of the two by default, but for more control you can specify which one you want instead. In Defraggler: 'Defrag Drive' will do some of both, as it sees fit to get the best result. 'Defrag Files' will make the files contiguous (#1 above). 'Defrag Free Space' (Advanced) will consolidate the files to give the most free clusters. (#2 above). PS. None of this will 'magically' make more space on your disc, it's all just moving files about.
