  1. And now the Updater is no longer showing in my CCleaner Free v5.55 - but I got yet another pop-up in the notification area instead. Interestingly the datestamp on the CCleaner64.exe I installed yesterday has not changed - but the programme itself and it's behaviour has. I don't allow CCleaner to update itself, I have the 'Update Manually' option set. Which shows that Piriform are now changing functionality remotely without asking for any permission and simply ignoring your user settings. (And possibly your privacy settings? As said above why did the Updater scan your software if it was not functional in Free?). This is beyond unacceptable and well into the regions of malware behaviour.
  2. It's already been complained about, but the two replies from Piriform was not encouraging. I think we are stuck with the new size unless we reinstall an older version. 5.53 was the last before it changed: https://filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/89678/
  3. I took a look at it and this reported error is related to accessing the internet. It can easily be replicated by putting your computer into 'Flight Mode' and so disconnecting from the net. I suspect that in most cases it's firewall settings that are preventing CCleaner from accessing the net. I'm aware that many users have blocked CCleaner in their firewalls, or it may be AV settings that's blocking the Updater from accessing the net.

  6. It looks as if you have somehow set that page to be your homepage, so it will always be the first page shown when you open Edge. It's a setting in Edge that does this, not any file. Go into your Edge settings and reset the homepage, or set it to a different one. https://www.wikihow.com/Change-Your-Homepage-in-Microsoft-Edge
  7. So CCleaner has now become another example of Crippleware. Crippleware - You get halfway through using a feature and then get prompted to buy to finish using it. If it's not available for Free then disable it altogether, like the other Pro features. Piriform are once again not doing themselves any favours and alienating their existing userbase. There are already plenty of complaints about this new updater on the forum - mostly that it doesn't even work in the Pro version and keeps reporting a connection error.
  8. No mistake, they have done it deliberately - for advertising. If you try to use it in the Free version then you get a pop-up directing you to buy the pro version. Programmes that act like this are called 'crippleware', most people don't like crippleware or the software companies that resort to using it. EDIT - The Updater appears not to be working properly in the Pro version anyway, as evidenced by the above posts and other threads.
  9. No, if you check my screenshot you'll see it's in the up to date tab the same as yours. (Which it should be as Win 10 will update it automagically). It's just a coincidence that it's also showing (3) updates needed. Those are 3 different apps listed on the other tab.
  10. I wouldn't use one anyway. I always go to the softwares own website for updates. I was just surprised to see it in the Free version - and to see that it was scanning my PC to list the software on it. If as Stephen says it is not functional on Free then why is it scanning. (Call me suspicious).
  11. I've just updated to v5.55 FREE and was surprised to see the new Software Updater enabled. - I thought the feature was only for PRO? (And no, I'm not running a Pro trial and all other Pro options are still unavailable). I was even more surprised that one of the applications it listed as Up-to-date was "Microsoft Windows Operating System". (For some reason listed as version 12.0.17763.1 - It's actually Win 10 v1809 build 17763.348). But really? You are going to list the Windows Operating System itself as something to be updated by CCleaner
  12. We have discussed the Epic browser before. One of the features of Epic is that it cleans it's own files on closing, so there should be nothing for CCleaner to clean. https://www.epicbrowser.com/our-key-features.html
  13. Sorry but once again you seem to have missed the point of the user complaints in this thread. If they were complaining that they couldn't see/read all the content then your reply would be fine. But they are complaining here that they don't want/need to see all the content all the time - so why won't you let the window be sized smaller than 1010 x 700 if the user wants to do that? Anyone who wants it larger could still resize it as they like - up to the maximum of their display if they want that. It's the lack of user choice that is being complained about. So a better reply would not be a justification of what size you have made the window, but a justification of why you have decided that users can't resize it smaller if they want to.
  14. I don't think that it's possible with a fusion drive. Presumably you want to erase the drive because you are selling the Mac? I think that your only option would be to split the fusion drive into a SSD and a HDD. That can be done, (and they can be merged again), but that means reformatting the drives each as a seperate drive, so you would wipe everything on there (including the OS) not just the free space. Of course you would need to re-install the OS again. This recent (Feb 2019) article walks you through the process, read the comments as well: https://www.tech-otaku.com/mac/secure-erasing-mac-fusion-drive/
  15. If you look at the free version you will see that some options are clearly markes as being pro options. (Its says 'PRO' next to them with a little padlock symbol). These PRO options are - scheduling, some smart cleaning options, multi-user cleaning, and automatic updates. Once you have paid for PRO then you can use these functions, if you don't need them then the free version will suffice. You also get 1 years support direct from Piriform, with the free version you just come and ask other users here for help.
  16. Avast now own Piriform, they bought it in July 2017. You are not the only person with this problem, but it will need the programmers at Piriform/Avast to work out what is going on and fix it.
  17. There seems to be a lag in v5.54 detecting cookies. I've posted about it in another thread but can't link to it from this phone. Try leaving CC running for a minute or so and seeing if that left hand side populates with the cookies on your computer.
  18. I've just done a bit of quick testing and it seems to be a lag in CC v5.54 detecting the cookies. If I left the window open it did eventually populate the list. As for the warning message - Did you dismiss the warning with a 'Do not show again'? Check in Options>Advanced that "Hide warning Messages" is not ticked. If you have that selected then CC will just skip cleaning of any running (in the background?) browser without giving you the warning.
  19. Interestingly I just took a look at this with 5.54 and initially I was seeing the same blank cookie window. I left it open and without me touching anything it suddenly populated with the cookies after about 10-15 seconds or so. I can see this repeatedly now. Launch CC and immediately go to the cookies. It's blank for about 3 seconds and then populates. I'm guessing that the initial 10-15 second lag was because that was the first launch of CC since booting. So it looks like it's just a lag with 5.54 taking it's time to detect and list the cookies. It may take even longer if you are using winapp2 or another extension?
  20. From what Piriform have said it's more to do with the new 'dumbed down' features they are introducing. (Or forcing on users, depending on your point of view). I would not be surprised to suddenly find after an update that CC will then only run in full screen mode.
  21. There seems to be a bug with this new feature. I believe the yellow dot indicates that it's a trial (trial = experimental) feature that not everyone gets. You're not the first to report a problem with it.
  22. I'd just close it from maximised and it should remember that. So it will open maximised, you use it to clean, then close it again. TBH you don't need to see anything else when you are cleaning and it's over pretty quickly (usually).
  23. Thinking more about it, It's probably something that Windows creates if/when an application tries to store a cookie as a file. (or maybe just in case something does try). That would make sense of the contents, it's a message meant to be read by whatever is trying to store a cookie as a file. It should probably be ignored by CCleaner, if it bothers you then just add it to the Exclusion list in CCleaner.
  24. That IE cookie is almost always there. (It's actually a file- C:\Users\{username}\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCookies\deprecated.cookie) It's a 'deprecated' cookie, and nobody is quite sure where it comes from. It's obviously something Windows that is creating it, but it can probably be created by more than one process that accesses the internet. A deprecated cookie is a cookie that is no longer valid because it has been replaced with a newer version of that cookie That particular one that CC keeps finding contains the text "Cookies are no longer stored in files. Please use Internet*Cookie* APIs to access cookies."

    v4.00 was released in March 2013, it's 6 years out of date. https://filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/14682/ The latest version is 5.54, there have been many changes since v4.00. (For better or worse). Generally CCleaner cleans temp files, file history, etc. as specified on the Windows or Applications tab. If it's ticked where listed on the tab then it will be cleaned by default. If you want to clean something not listed on the tabs then you can 'Include' it - or use the winapp2 extension that already defines cleaning rules for most applications you will come across. Winapp2 includes specific cleaning rules for Photoshop.
