    Excellent points all the way around!

    Windows 10 1909

    @nukecad -- I stopped using my MS account a long time ago. At that time, I had several devices and syncing everything was easy. However, even if I turned off syncing and used CCleaner on every Windows device, the device would be cleaned but my personal MS account page would still show every bit of activity. If I wanted to clean that up, it would have to be done manually via the MS account page. Google does similar things with chromebooks -- they push the Google account, syncing is turned on by default and everything shows up on the Google dashboard. To clean that up, you have to stop syncing and reset the dashboard. @hazelnut -- good advice. I learned to do that (the hard way of course) but I know a lot of people who will only do a clean install while online so Windows can find updates immediately. On the other hand, all you have to do is go to Windows Update after the clean install and check.

    A mandatory MS account? -- wouldn't surprise me if it came to that. Using the MS Media Creation Tool for a clean install of Windows 10, there is no obvious method of setting up a local account. When asked for an email address or phone number, one needs to put in a fake phone number like 1234567890. After selecting next, it won't be recognized and on the bottom left of that screen will be something along the lines of "offline account" (which would then be the setup for a local account).
  4. While Edge Chromium can be downloaded now for those who want it, Microsoft is going to release it via Windows Update as an automatic update. I am waiting for it that way and will then assess CCleaner's status, which is up to Avast. Yes, it would be nice to hear something about a new CCleaner version from an official source, but, we have no control over that. How long one chooses to wait and see or move on is up to each user.
  5. @nukecad -- kind of figured that.
  6. Microsoft's new Edge Chromium is officially out. Current CCleaner 5.63.7540 ignores it as expected but it can be cleaned from within the browser. Time for a new version of CCleaner.
  7. I reported CCleaner's problems with Edge pre-loading in October 2018 and a fix was supposed to come in the next release. That never happened. https://forum.piriform.com/topic/52706-547-partially-brokenwin-10-1809/
  8. I don't do anything in the registry unless I'm really sure of what needs to be done. The HKeys shown above need to be created and I haven't bothered with the pre-loading issue at all. We'll see how the new Edge will work out in a couple of weeks. Another thought -- with Windows 10 changing as frequently as it does between feature and cumulative updates, there are times when previous registry tweaks no longer work.
  9. No matter where you are, a happy and safe holiday season to all.

    It wouldn't surprise me. Some of the feature as well as cumulative updates change user settings and MS likes their stuff as the default. Luckily, we're still able to change things to our liking -- for now. An entire other story if that ever changes.

    Hi @hazelnut -- the link in your post above pretty much echoes what was posted on TenForums today. In the following thread, I posted a question to @Stephen CCleaner regarding the Edge pre-loading registry fix (for the current browser) as to whether it'll be needed in the new chromium Edge. Link is in this thread: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/56335-solution-ccleaner-cannot-fully-clean-microsoft-edge-due-to-pre-loading/?tab=comments#comment-313516 BTW -- runtime error is gone and has not returned, so long as 'category' view is not used for Control Panel. Let's hope MS doesn't mess the new Edge install or the next feature update.
  12. Hello @Stephen CCleaner -- quick question. According to this thread from TenForums, the final, stable channel public release for the new chrome Edge will be out on or shortly after January 15th. If the registry fix described above is implemented for the existing Edge, will it need to be changed for the new Edge? Microsoft plans on hiding the old Edge very deeply in the system. https://www.tenforums.com/windows-10-news/146645-microsoft-details-migration-plan-new-microsoft-edge-windows-10-a.html Thanks for any information.

    After every Win 10 reinstall or repair install, Control Panel was always in category view by default on my system and I never gave it a second thought. At least now that the cause and workarounds are known, hopefully others who have this issue can solve it easily. Happy holidays to all and Santa is in icon view.

    Now this is really embarrassingly simple -- especially after troubleshooting for three weeks. The entire issue, at least on my machine, was caused by Control Panel being in category view. @Andavari you gave me an idea. All I had to do was change the CP view from category to either small or large icons. Don't even need to pin anything to start menu. Just go to CP in the usual way through search and be greeted by icon view and not category view -- no errors. For me, finally, case closed!

    @hazelnut, @Andavari, @nukecad, @Nergal -- informative update regarding the Runtime error. It's hitting a small number of machines on Win 10 1909. The cause has something to do with 1909, Control Panel and Cortana. It's actually the Control Panel setting the error when Reliability History is checked. The error also appears if you go to a different category in the CP. There are two workarounds. The first has a 100% success rate -- the second may or may not work. 1. Go to Control Panel and change the view from category to icons. Right click the icon topics you want to open and pin each one to the start menu. Close Control Panel. Run CCleaner to remove the errors from Reliability History. Open the appropriate icon from the start menu. It will directly go to that section in Control Panel and no errors will be generated. To properly check Reliability History, the Security and Maintenance icon must be pinned to the start menu and opened from there. 2. At least one user found a solution by uninstalling, reinstalling and re-registering Cortana using Powershell. That may be beyond the ability of a typical user. The following link from TenForums explains it all and it's good reading. If this link is against this forum's policy, I apologize and please remove it. https://www.tenforums.com/general-support/145996-runtime-errors.html Next up is to get Microsoft involved.
