  1. You'll jump 1809 (they stopped pushing it out on Automatic Updates some time ago) and go straight to 1903: https://www.computerworld.com/article/3396660/microsoft-orphans-windows-10-1809-prepares-to-jump-1803-users-straight-to-1903.html
  2. I have a qualcom wifi driver so was a bit wary of that issue, I checked for an update for it before installing 1903 and it said it was up to date. So I went for it and it wasn't a problem.
  3. There is probably one or more left over registry entries for Opera somewhere. Revo is good, but like any uninstaller it can sometimes miss something. (Maybe you set something somewhere to open in Opera? Uninstalling Opera wouldn't clear that setting). If you have Revo Pro then you could try a 'Forced Uninstall' to see if that will clear it. Otherwise if you are comfortable with using the registry editor you could search the registry yourself for anything that mentions Opera. Usual warning - If you don't know what you are doing with the registry editor then don't use it, you
  4. It's more likely the mouse itself. (Unless you have somehow affected the mouse driver). They can start acting funny at times for seemingly no reason. If it's a wireless mouse then try unpluging the dongle and plugging it back in again. (And change the mouse batteries or make sure it's charged). If it's a wired mouse then unplug/replug the lead. Have you tried a different mouse? It's always a good idea to have a spare mouse handy, because they do break down You could also try going to the device manager, right click the entry for the mouse, and update the driver.
  5. Sorry for the delay, I got stuck helping/serving in the pub (Travellers on their way to Appleby horse fair). 1903 installed with no problems, download was fine once I'd got a fast conection, but install took it's time. Looking round the settings obviously there are changes, but no problems that I can see yet.
  6. Just installing it now. Had no problems apart from the slow wifi at home, (5-6 Mbps max), so I brought the laptop across to the pub (any excuse). Wifi 60+ Mbps, downloaded in no time. Now at 82% updating.
  7. Even more so now that Windows 10 Home will let you defer instaling downloaded updates for up to 35 days. So if you do defer the installation then you are taking a risk of losing the downloaded files if you run any cleaner other than Storage Sense or Disk Clean-up.
  8. They removed the cleaning of Windows Update files from CCleaner a while back. Specifically because Windows 10 handles update files differently from earlier Windows versions (It installs some of them over time rather than all at once) and so Windows 10 updates could be / were being affected by the cleaning. To be extra cautious though I wouldn't run CC between downloading and installing Windows updates. Windows 10 will remove the update files itself when they are no longer needed. (Or you could use Storage Sense or Disk Clean-up which both know which windows update files are s
  9. Interestingly the Update Assistant in the UK was still offering 1809 until just minutes ago. It's got 1903 now. (Hazelnuts' link above is the US site). They are releasing 1903 slowly, so it may be weeks or months before you are offered it on the normal release channel. There are also still a few outstanding hardware/software issues that need to be resolved before it will be offered to some machines. eg. You can find a list of all 12 of the known issues here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/windows/release-information/status-windows-10-1903 If you install 1903 u
  10. LOL, yes restoring the list from a backup of CCleaners settings would be simpler. I guess that we just get used to people who ask for help here because they haven't been doing backups.
  11. It's usually a good idea to have think now and again about the way you are working, we all get stuck with habits. TBH I only ever open Firefox with one tab set at my homepage. (Google search). With broadband speeds these days it's easy and fast enough to just open another tab/webpage when you want it rather than having it loaded all the time. Having your regularly visited sites in your bookmarks/favourites means two clicks and your wanted site is open in a new tab in a second. Of course everybody works differently, and we all have our own preferd methods.
  12. Pretty conclusive that it's something that CC is cleaning from the Chrome Cache that is closing the tabs then. (The logging into youtube and running may be something else, see below). As no one else has responded it looks as if you are going have to find the problem file yourself. I don't have Chrome on my computer, but here's how I would go about it. (It's a bit tedious/repetative, most troubleshooting usually is): In CCleaner Right click on Chrome 'Internet Cache' and select 'Analyze Internet Cache' from the pop-up menu. It should report so many KB in so many files,.
  13. That's different from the taskbar jumplists, there is no way they would log you into anything they are just a list of where you have been. TBH that does sound like something (Firefox or youtube) is syncing your login. You machine is cleared and you aren't logged in from your machine itself, but then suddenly something syncs and logs you in. If clearing through Firefox itself clears the problem then that to me would suggest that it's Firefox that is syncing. Alternatively youtube may be saving a cookie on it's own servers that recognises you machine and logs you in when you vis
  14. Windows itself will still see the 'deleted' apps in the control panel (and/or settings) and you can still uninstall them from there.. If you''ve deleted the names from the list in CCleaner's Uninstall option then the simplest way to repopulate it should be to uninstall and then reinstall CCleaner itself. You'll need the uninstall or CC will just remember what you have 'deleted' from the list before. Of course uninstalling/reinstalling will also lose any other changes you had made to CCleaners default settings and you'll have to set them back again. Here's the CCleaner document
  15. Is this only happening after you have run CCleaner? If you have CCleaner Pro then do you have Automatic Browser cleaning selected? If so then turn it off while you try the 2 things below. What happens if you close Chrome, don't run CC, and then reopen Chrome? And what happens if you uncheck 'internet cache' and do run CC then reopen Chrome? Just trying to work out if it is CCleaner causing the issue, or if it may be something in Chrome itself.
  16. That's one of the reasons I got my own web domain with my own '{firstname}@{myname}.uk' email address. I don't have/need a website, I just use it for the email. Fair enough my Internet Service Provider could snoop it if they wanted, but they would soon lose customers if they started that. (Unlike google, microsoft, etc.)
  17. You seem to have missed a major point here, you are not being charged for updates of CCleaner. CCleaner updates are free to everyone, as long as you download/install them yourself. And CC informs you when there is an update available to download. When you buy a pro licence it gives you: Automatic updates of ccleaner itself. (It does it for you instead of you having to click a few buttons, big deal). The ability to automatically update other apps. (If the particular app is hosted on filehippo). The ability to schedule cleaning. The ability to clean multiple u
  18. Actually in that case it's your Browser (You said you use Chrome?) that is specifically overriding the setting you made the default in Windows. (The browser was set to use "Mail" to open email links from within the browser). It may be worth rembering that 'Default' does not mean 'always use'; it means 'Use if nothing else is specified'.
  19. Check your browser settings. There is probably an 'Open with' setting in the browser that will overide the system default, similar to this one in Firefox:
  20. Dunno then, Microsoft work in mysterious ways. Which give me another thought - I don't have a Microsoft Account anymore (deleted it entirely, took 6 months they don't want you to delete one) maybe that was the difference?
  21. It looks as if Windows may have changed that setting during the Windows update. (Why? Who knows, it didn't change on mine but my Windows is Home not Pro which may make a difference. Pro versions used in an office may want to block employees from downloading 'unknown' apps). If you leave it as you have set it now " Warn Me Before Installing Apps From Outside The Store " then it will do as it says and give you a warning anytime you try to install something from outside the Windows store, but will still let you install it. If you don't want to see any warnings about installing non-
  22. A bit late with this answer as the OP seems to have sorted it out, but it might help others. I've seen similar 'hangs' a few times before when CCleaner is used for the first time on a computer that's been in use for a while. It's usually simply because there is helluva lot to be cleaned that first time round. In that circumstance I do as nergal suggests and use each browsers own inbuilt cleaning to start with. Then I run Windows Disk Clean-up. (which will take a long time). That will get rid of most of the initial backlog of junk, then run CCleaner to clear the rest. You s
  23. That's part of how they justify calling all cookies 'Trackers'. It's just a language thing. Yes, location data could literally be said to be tracking you by saving your current/last location in a cookie. Many websites you visit will leave a cookie on your computer to say that you visited there (and maybe store how you set the page up, etc. so it's the same if you visit again). Your browser history could also be said to be tracking which websites you visited. But historicaly 'tracking files' meant keyloggers, screengrabbers, and the like that tracked/recorded your every activity.
  24. The 'Trackers' that CC reports as found are not what you or I (or anyone else) would call trackers. The summary report screen used to report every file that it found to clean as a 'tracker', regardless of what the file was. That's now been incorporated into the new 'Easy Clean' and it now seems to report all cookies as 'Trackers'. (Rather than just saying that everything is a tracker). A slight improvement, but I doubt that many people would regard any but a very few cookies as 'tracking' what they do. It's just a marketing ploy. CCleaner is a junk file cleaner, it is not
  25. General rules of thumb- Software on ebay and similar sites is often (I'd even say usually) counterfeit or hacked, avoid it. If it sounds too good a deal then it probably is. Always get your software direct from the developer, even free software. Do you need the pro features. (Virtual disc support, automatic updates, 1 years priority support)? If not then just download the free version from Piriform, it does exactly the same recovery job as the pro. https://www.ccleaner.com/recuva For your particular ebay link I note that it says there are 7 copies for sale. Is it
