  1. Download the 'Slim' installer from here (3rd one down) and double click 'ccsetup582_slim.exe' to install it: https://www.ccleaner.com/ccleaner/builds It should pick up your existing licence, but if not and it installs as Free then simply go to Options>About and click on Upgrade to Pro, enter your current licence key in the box, and click register. (You may want to make a note of your licence key from 5.81 before installing 5.82, just in case. It can be found at Options>About>License Information). PS. Once you have 5.82 I'd avoid the new Driver Updater, it's causing serious issues for some users. If the above still does not work for you then it looks like something may be blocking the install, please come back telling us which Windows version you have and what AntiVirus you are using.
  2. It's an intermittent bug that has been going on in every version for a while now. Sometimes each the items is listed in two's, sometimes the whole category is repeated one under the other. Being intermittent, and displaying two different behaviours, it seems to be proving difficult to track down what causes it. Plus as you say it doesn't affect functionality so it's probably not a high priority to fix. We've just got used to ignoring it when it happens.
  3. You cannot set Health Check it will always do it's own thing. If you want to customise what is cleaned or not then you have to use Custom Clean where you can change the settings. You said as much yourself in your first post. If Health Check used the Custom Clean settings then there would be no point in having the two different cleaning methods - Health Check would just be the same as Custom Clean.
  4. SpeechRuntime.exe -ToastNotifier is a new registry entry related to Windows 10 21H1. It's also now used by certaing components of Win 10 20H1 and 20H2. Windows has put it on your computer because it is needed, and if you remove it then Windows will put it straight back. Right click on it and 'Add to exclude list' then CCleaner will ignore it. PS. We recommend that you don't regularly use the Registry Cleaner with Windows 10. Windows 10 changes the registry often which can give false results. See this: https://community.ccleaner.com/topic/59952-i-get-a-registry-error-on-ccleaner-on-windows-10-i-have-scanned-5-times/?tab=comments#comment-326804 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
  5. There was also an update to Firefox yesterday, v89.0.1, don't know if you've got that and if it may also have had an effect? https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/89.0.1/releasenotes/
  6. Thanks for the extra info Hazelnut, that saves a reinstall. (I don't have that option in my CCleaner - but that will be because I clear out the language folder after updating CCleaner).
  7. You need to set the language to be used when you are installing CCleaner. Reinstall CCleaner and set the language to French during the new install. Vous devez définir la langue à utiliser lors de l'installation de CCleaner. Réinstallez CCleaner et définissez la langue sur le français lors de la nouvelle installation.
  8. Let's see if we can pin this down, three questions to start. When you say that it is not cleaning on closing Firefox then what is telling you that it isn't being cleaned? Close Firefox and then look in Windows Task Manager, can you see anything Firefox related still running. (Or a Firefox add-on still running). Could you also screenshot your Smart Cleaning settings? eg. this one has Firefox set to clean on closing but not to notify you that it has cleaned it.
  9. As the Driver Updater is a new feature, Beta status, and only available to a limited number of users, I have flagged this up to the staff for a reply.
  10. Question split into it's own topic, was previously in a topic about CCleaner on Windows XP.
  11. Fair enough, it will depend on how much browsing you have been doing between cleans as to how many cookies, history, and temp files have built up. If you are not running one or more adblockers the numbers are also going to be higher. But I was wondering about the discrepancy reported between 'found' and 'cleaned'. (Sounds a bit like the corrupt bin problem but that should show in 'Space' not 'Trackers'). Personally I don't see anything like that many, but I do thoroughly clear Firefoxs' various caches each time I close it. I clean them regularly after every session with my own cleaner batch file, before I use CCleaner once a day or so. @Javajoe25can I suggest that you try adding Malwarebytes Browser Guard to your Firefox, its Free. That will block many of the trackers as well as helping with general adblocking and browser security - you choice if you want to add it of course (I've been using it since it was in beta testing): https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/malwarebytes/?src=search
  12. Not realy; here, a disability forum, and a landlord/tenant forum are where I am most active, less so on the Malwarebytes forum, and I also mod on a CAD forum. Google my username, it's no secret, and you'll find them. Nearest to 'general' would probably be the BleepingComputer forum, but I'm a minor contibutor there.
  13. It is quite normal for "Trackers" and "Junk" to reappear straight after cleaning and is just how a computer works. However, @Javajoe25the numbers you report seem odd and 9872 seems especially high - can you give us more details of your Windows version, the browser you are using, and your avtivirus. For a fuller explanation of just why Trackers etc. come back after cleaning, and what you can do to stop some of it, see this:
  14. Yes it makes complete sense. Although it is counterintuitive if you are used to older Windows versions, with Windows 10 a Restart actually resets your system more thoroughly than a Shutdown/Reboot does. In other words, when it comes to Win 10, a "Complete Shutdown" is not as complete as you may think it is, and it's not as complete as a Restart. It gets a bit technical but a Shutdown with Win 10 actually hibernates the Windows Kernel to disc and restores it on Reboot. A Restart doesn't hibernate the Kernel and so Windows starts completely afresh. See this article, but be aware that even though lots of articles talk about turning off 'Fast Startup' Win 10 will still hibernate the Kernel with Fast Startup turned off - it just doesn't hibernate as much as it does with Fast Startup turned on. (But turning off Fast Startup is always a good step). https://www.howtogeek.com/349114/shutting-down-doesnt-fully-shut-down-windows-10-but-restarting-it-does/ So whatever is causing your dwm.exe to use excess RAM is not being cleared by a Shudown/Reboot but it is being cleared by a restart, which is what you report. Which suggests that the problem is with something Windows related rather than CCleaner, and so I'd say that the prime suspect has to be that Intel bug.
  15. There are a few things different. Give it a try with my settings and see how it goes for you. I'll try testing your settings when I get back home to see if I can spot anything obvious. PS. Is there anything Windows/Desktop related in your custom includes?
  16. I'd give it a minute or two to see if it does drop again. What I am thinking is that if CCleaner is cleaning/deleting something as mentioned above then dwm will have to rebuild it again, once it's done that dwm's RAM usage should drop again. Can you screenshot what you have ticked/unticked for 'Windows Explorer', 'System', and 'Advanced' in Custom Clean? eg. these are my usual settings:
  17. Does the desktop manager RAM usage stay at 2GB, or does it drop down again after a while? I'm thinking that it could be temporararily running higher while rebuilding thumbnails, icons, shortcuts, etc.?
  18. As you have v5.64 Free for use with XP then the automatic updates don't apply, (they weren't available in v5.64 Free). If you have Smart Cleaning turned on then it will use some background memory, and will then use more memory when it does a periodic clean. How often it will do a clean will depend on your Smart cleaning settings, but as a user of CCleaner Free you won't be able to change those settings- your only option is to have Smart Cleaning enabled or not. Turn Smart Cleaning off it you don't want it running in the background. You will then have to open CCleaner and clean manually like you are asking for. You'd have to judge for yourself whether it's better for you with Smart Cleaning off or on, which will depend on how you use your computer. PS. You shouldn't realy be surfing the web with an XP machine anymore, it won't have security updates, but I guess you are already aware of that and there are many reasons why someone may still be using XP. One other thing: if you have Options>Settings>'Run CCleaner when the computer starts' ticked then it will breifly run a clean at startup but should then close again.
  19. It's Chinese so may be it's own thing and not Chrome/Firefox based? Winapp2 might include cleaming rules for it but I don't know for sure?
  20. Smart Cleaning, and automatic update checks, run in the background if you have them turned on - but they shouldn't consume "ever growing memory". Can you give us any details/screenshots of that, if a memory leak is indeed happening then the devs will want to track it down and fix it.
  21. As I don't use Chrome I can't say about any updates to it. The best I can suggest is to open and close Chrome a few times without running CCeaner (and turn of browser Smart Cleaning in CCleaner if you have it on) and seeing if it's still logging you out. If it does still log you out then that shows it's not CCleaner doing it. If it's only when you run CCleaner that it logs you out then Chrome may have changed where it stores things and it will take a bit more investigation. (Firefox did similar a few months ago and changed how/where it stores cookies and other things). PS. There was a bug in Chrome that would sign you out on closing, maybe it's resurfaced for you? https://www.technipages.com/fix-chrome-signs-me-out-of-everything-on-exit
  22. I use Softmaker Free Office. Does everything I want for WP docs and spreadsheets for home use, and there's a presentation (powerpoint) app included although it's not something I use it's handy when you want to see an existing one. Being free it has ads but they're not too obtrusive, plus there is a paid for option if you feel the need for more features/no ads.

    Windows 11 ?

    Or maybe not? Now it seems that they may be going for a MacOS style 'location' name: https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/microsoft/not-windows-11-new-windows-10-name-scheme-hinted-in-microsoft-docs/ I wonder how much they are paying people to sit around debating different names? As if users are realy bothered what it's called anyway as long as it works.
  24. The problem is that if you leave things behind following an uninstall (and many apps do) then users complain that it hasn't been completely uninstalled. Most users want an uninstall to remove everything related to the uninstalled app. As suggested the best way if you want to keep a copy for possible future use is to make your own backup of your CCleaner.ini file. I'm always changing settings when answering questions here, so I keep a copy of my CCleaner.ini in my Documents folder so that I can quickly copy/paste it into the CCleaner folder to put my own settings back.
  25. It was more of a suggestion of what may possibly be happening. It can thoeretically happen if your browser is still running in the background. Even though you've closed it a Chromium based browser may still be running in the background - and CCleaner browser is Chromium based. A 'Push Notification' could then cause the browser to open to try and display the notification. It's not usual, but your browser opening randomly is not usual. Close the CCleaner browser and look in Windows Task Manager to see if it is still running as a background task. If you do a google for 'Chrome opens randomly' you'll see that random opening can be an issue for some. And then of course it could be due to malware, so a good scan with your Antivirus is recommended. I'd also download Malwarbytes Free if you don't have it already and run a manual scan with that. https://www.malwarebytes.com/premium If you realy want to be sure that it's not malware causing your browser to open randomly then you can also go to the Malwarebytes forum, where an expert will work with you to completely check over your computer and clean it up if necessary - all for free. (They'll often also pick up other problems and not just malware). If you want to do that then start here: https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/9573-im-infected-what-do-i-do-now/ Other websites also offer the same service, you can see a list of the ones that we recommend in number 10 of the forum rules: https://community.ccleaner.com/announcement/15-forum-rules /
