  1. I never had to use an admin acct. in the past to delete those entries. CC just pops up a message asking if I'm sure I wish to proceed. I assumed I'd get a message I don't have permission.

    OK, I ran as admin. Come to think of it, the problem may be that some mos. ago I added that hidden admin acct. to my login choices.



  2. mta, It's any CC version on Windows 10. I haven't tried unticking Chrome but will do that next time. I  believe I have the latest Chrome version.

    Andavari, I don't have Chrome synced, but I did have it set to allow background tasks running after closed. Will see how that goes. I don't even touch IE but use Edge on occasion. 

    Thank you both for your replies and advice. :)


  3. I just updated my CCleaner. I always choose Customize. So now AVAST thinks it's cute to secretly install their nearly 900 MB AV program with CCleaner?? I saw NOTHING about AVAST being included to even Uncheck. Bundling PUPS is one thing, but really now! This is beyond unacceptable. In fact, the only way I knew it was installed was when WinPatrol popped up a notification it wanted to update!! You don't just go installing an AV app without someone's knowledge OR permission. Unbelievable!!

     They can stuff this piece of garbage where the sun doesn't shine. I now must uninstall and run a tool to rid myself of it.

  4. Hi again,


    Before my initial post, I'd purged all restore points and created a new one which didn't show up in CCleaner.

    I just updated Libre Office and rebooted. The installation created a restore point. Neither restore point shows up in CCleaner.


  5. There are no restore points listed in Tools section. If I recall, I had this same issue with another recent version. They showed up later, but I don't remember when, how or what I did (if anything).  :huh: 


    It didn't work to purge old restore points and create a new one. It doesn't show up.

  6. I'm sorry I didn't respond sooner. I just realized I hadn't chosen to get email notifications. ^_^  


    FYI, I'm not having that issue with Defender, because I have Defender disabled. Adding that line to .ini file sounds good. Although, on the forums responders have been advising users to Uncheck Defender if they suggest using CCleaner, OR if users are having the resulting problem. I don't know how many have suggested running CCleaner in the past. A couple of us do currently, but as far as the MVP's I haven't seen any.

    ​Thanks to all three of you. I appreciate the time and input.


  7. There shouldn't need to be lots of people complaining about it, should there? If the developers are aware there's a problem like this, they should change things, IMO. Don't any of you have direct communication with them, so you can possibly convince them to do the right thing? Either way, they must check the forums. In that case, they would know and just do not care. It shouldn't even be listed at all.

    Anyway, thanks for your time. I appreciate it.


  8. Thank you for your response, info. and detailed explanation. Some of which is over my head. :) I'm just an average user. 

    ​Question: If it's been known for several yrs., why hasn't this been changed esp. since Windows 10? Can't the developers change this setting in an update in the near future? I don't know how much of an issue it was prior to Win10. Since 10, Defender is a complete AV-Antimalware app which runs a daily scheduled scan. I'm sure you're aware of that.  AFAIK, that's when it became a real problem. I would think they wouldn't want CCleaner to cause this type of problem for users. Right?


    How does one do this, from the Run command? > You can use /export after the main .EXE to export all of the cleaning .INI files that are embedded inside of CCleaner, example: CCleaner.exe /export


    ​Thanks again,


  9. Hi there,


    I recently learned CCleaner's default setting for Defender, e.g. checked, has caused lots of frustration and aggravation for helpers on the Microsoft Community Site. I recently joined so wasn't aware of this problem. Defender being checked by default, messes up it's regular scan schedule. When it's selected and CCleaner is run, Defender forgets it's already run the scheduled scan. This isn't acceptable and surely the devs of CCleaner must have known what the outcome would be!

    Additionally, while I've been using CCleaner for yrs., many are skeptical of using such a utility in the first place. Is there any documentation on what exactly CCleaner does by cleaning each those entries under Applications? If not, there really should be. I realize much of it is self-explanatory. But for example, what does CCleaner clean with Skype checked, SUPERAntispyware, etc.?


    I'd appreciate some clarification. If there's already documentation, I'm sorry for not checking first. I'm sure you'll reconsider Defender's default setting, since it causes problems and lots wasted time.
