  1. I think people must be doing something wrong! I've always used the FREE version and because of the previous well-known issues I was still on CCleaner 5.44.6575 until a few days ago. I'm now VERY aware of potential issues and look before I leap (install) I've just updated 3 PCs to CCleaner 5.51.6939 by downloading from the genuine site http://www.ccleaner.com/ccleaner/download/standard and then manually installing it by clicking on the downloaded ccsetup551.exe file....as I always have done. Also I run the installations "customised" to prevent CC options from being added
  2. UPDATE to my post above I've created 2 small batch files, one using @nukecad suggestion to create a text-file list of connections in C:\ (Continuous connection activity.bat) and another to create a snapshot of running connections, also in C:\. These are attached - they need to be run in Administrator mode - right-click the file and...... Continuous connection activity.bat Connection activity snapshot.bat
  3. Much obliged to @nukecad and @mta A combination of your suggestions sounds like the way to go - i'll report back if I have any new findings. @nukecad I just tried your netstat suggestion - now I need to do a bit of digging to find out what some of these mysterious communications are about. I'm pleased to say that CC is NOT amongst them - that whole link contains some very interesting info . Please see my UPDATE below One question for you both (as you both mention it) if you delete the ccupdate file, does that prevent the manual Check for updates button from working?
  4. @Kernol @mta @Augeas I have NOT yet tried version of 5.46 of CC - I reverted to 5.44 (and am still using it) when all the monitoring problems with 5.45 started, so perhaps you could answer this for me please: I read the the v5.46 changelog but I'm not entirely clear whether the telemetry that is now running is due to the Settings option "Inform me of updates to CCleaner" being ticked. It strikes me that with that option on, then CC MUST "phone home" in order to see if there's is in fact a newer version available. If that's the case then it would make sense that the only way
  5. Thank you for that - I now have v5.44.6575 installed and have checked Task Manager and the Registry finding no "nasties". Options > Privacy > Allow usage data to be shared..... defaulted to ON but I switched it off and it has remained off after a reboot. Options > Monitoring is all OFF by default as it should be. @Stephen Piriform I would like to point out that you really do need to get this right in the next release. Apart from the fact that I and many others are very disgruntled with this whole affair, might I point out that this is the THIRD time in less than a year
  6. That may be because there are other Registry keys associated with CC Have a look at my posting.......
  7. Doesn't work. See my post here and the replies to it.
  8. I presume you went into Tools > Startup and set it to Disabled? I just tried that and got the same effect - in fact it created a NEW entry giving 2 entries in CCleaner - 1 enabled and 1 disabled. That makes sense actually because Windows reads the registry at Windows Startup which is long before tasks like CCleaner start, so when it gets there, monitoring has already started. It then creates a new Entry in CCleaner to match the Registry. Remember - the Registry is all powerful! The way to do it is to edit the Registry key that I quoted above. I've just tried it; restarted Wi
  9. Afraid it doesn't - at least not on Win 10 Pro 1803 Please see my reply to @TheOwner in another related thread
  10. Might I call the Developer's attention to my posting in the linked thread here: Particularly the part from "EDIT" onwards.
  11. @TheOwner I began my reply as follows: Using Win 10 Pro 1803: I tried following your instructions above but would you please clarify "3.Disable CCupdate task in task manager" . In my task manager (Win 10 Pro) I have an associated process called "CCleaner64.exe" and I also have a "CCleaner" entry in the Start-up tab. I've disabled the startup entry, and stopped the process many times (and modified the options in CCleaner itself) but it recurs after a few minutes as others have stated. Where exactly in task manager did you see CCUpdate task? Or did you mean Task
  12. Me too - I was getting the problem on CCleaner Free, v5.10.5373, Win 7 Pro 64Bit. Crashed first time after reboot as per post #5 Now had 5.11.5408 for 3 days - not crashed once - good fix - thank you
  13. Regarding your first issue: I had an identical problem on 2 PCs because Chrome was always running in the background even after closing all browser instances. Use Task Manager to see if that's the case - if it is , in Chrome Settings, go to Advanced Settings, scroll down to System and UNcheck "Continue running background apps when Google Chrome is closed". No idea on your second issue though.
