    Chrome Dev

    CCleanser does not detect Chrome Dev
  6. So, I uninstalled chrome a few hours ago but I forgot to export my bookmarks first, and there were A LOT of them. And the C:\Users\User\Appdata\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default folder was deleted with the uninstall, so I decided to check if Recuva can do it. Luckily for me, the C:\Users\User\Appdata\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Bookmarks file which contains chrome's bookmarks, was unscathed, recuva says "Excellent" state and "No overwritten cluster detected." However, when I recover the file to another drive, and open it with notepad++, it's just NULL NULL NULL etc. The file is 12kb in size. It doesn't have a file extension, it's just "Bookmarks", but the content is json, you can see it if you use chrome and open your bookmarks file with notepad++, it's in json format despite not having an extension. But for some reason, recuva says the file is completely untouched, yet recovers it in a broken state, how am I supposed to recover the text from it? If recuva can't recover a simple file that contains only text, god forbid if I have to rely on recuva for recovering something harder (I know it's my fault I forgot to export bookmarks)

  8. To hazelnut: I had the previous version installed. When I opened it to run it, a box popped up that said there was a new version, and to click on the link to download it. When I clicked on the link it opened my default browser, Chrome, and then opened filepuma.com and the download automatically started. It asked me where I wanted it saved which I indicated my download folder. The download occured fine. I then clicked on the file of the new version and it installed without problems. Then the Piriform website opened in a second tab and thanked me for downloading their software. It was at this point while I was navigating in the Piriform website that my mouse started glitching, jumping around, just not acting right. So I closed both tabs in Chrome and started the new version of CCleaner. Then after it did the initial "Analyze", my laptop froze and none of the other functions of CCleaner would work, and my mouse was acting all screwy again. I went back to the Piriform website on Chrome in order to file a bug report, but the website was acting screwy, things didn't function in the log in and Community Board area, and I tried to type things but it wouldn't let my mouse or keyboard function on the Piriform website. So I closed the website and Chrome and had to do a hard reboot of my laptop to get out of the new version of CCleaner. I then had to use my Android phone to access the Piriform website and submit my bug report. I then uninstalled the new version of CCleaner and reinstalled the old version of CCleaner. The old version works fine and that is the one I'm using until Piriform gets CCleaner straightened out.
  9. I've just reinstalled and updated windows 10 (to the latest version) on my PC (I do this on a yearly basis) and for some reason CCleaner insists that Google Chrome is installed on my PC when it's not. Before anyone suggests that I'm installing Chrome by accident - I'm not, I always turn off the install Chrome baggage. I don't know if it's a bug in the installer or the program (CCleaner) itself, but it's rather annoying - especially since I never use Chrome for the plain and simple reason that I don't like it. Can anyone suggest how to remove the Chrome browser entry from CCleaner?

  11. Hi Dave CCleaner: Sorry, but I have to take issue with that comment. I might be "used to" Avast pre-checking check boxes in their installers to install bundled software but I'm not happy about it, and I'm not sure why bundled Google products like the Chrome browser are the exception unless your third-party partnership agreement stipulates that Avast won't be paid a commission unless the check box for the Google product is pre-checked. Customers are still smarting from the latest fiasco that forced Avast to disband their Jumpshot subsidiary in January 2020 (see the PC World article Update: Avast Kills Jumpshot Data-Collection Business After Privacy Concerns Mount as well as Reuter's Avast Pulls Plug on Jumpshot After Data Privacy Scandal) and were hoping these questionable business practices would be a thing of the past. Perhaps it's a good thing that Microsoft started flagging Avast / Piriform installers bundled with bloatware as PUAs if this serves as an incentive for Avast to finally finish their 10-year-old "to-do" list. ------------- 64-bit Win 10 Pro v1909 build 18363.900 * Windows Defender v4.18.2006.10 * Firefox ESR v68.11.0 * CCleaner Free Portable v5.69.7865
  12. Automatic cleaning of cookies by CCleaner v5.68.7820 (64Bit) not carried out. Windows 10 Pro 64bit v1903. CCleaner has the excellent function of deleting cookies, even automatically, even for Chrome, but cleaning does not seem to work. Or am I the one who is wrong/forget something. I use CCleaner with automatic start at user access from Planning Utility with the /AUTO parameter. ---- In task manager at the startup tab, there is a call to Google Chrome enabled: "C:\ Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\Chrome.exe" --type=service /prefetch: 8 by disabling this call and restarting the PC, the analysis of the system, cache, temporary files and cookies of Chrome is successfully carried out by CCleaner. (Otherwise, leaving this call enabled, the analysis of CCleaner is "skipped"). ----- However, even leaving it disabled the call to Chrome and therefore disabling the automatic start of Chrome when the computer starts, numerous cookies are not deleted by the automatic start of CCleaner, which however successfully performs all the other tasks. These cookies are not included in the list of cookies to be kept. Why ? How to clear Chrome cookies? I installed CCleaner just for this function.
  13. .7865 Prof. - WIN10 - Custom Clean : CC reaches 100% , but hangs on "Google Chrome Saved Form Information". I never get a finish screen. No buttons react - even cancel - but don't get a "Not Responding" message. Any Ideas ? Thanks.
  14. The free installs of CCleaner, Recuva, Speccy and Defraggler were flagged as containing PUA (not being PUA) for the presence of the Chrome offer ... which has been in there since 2010 ... Again, none of the offers are silent installs. And the risk of the AV offers slipping through unnoticed due to client connection failures was eliminated in October of last year. Since then only @nukecad seems to have found a way to break it - and even he hasn't been able to replicate how he did it.
  15. Nope. The flagging by Defender is not of a "threat" but a "PUA" advisory that the free installer contained an offer for Chrome ... which had been there since CCleaner version 3 back in late 2010. In other breaking news, Eyjafjallajoekull is disrupting air travel, they got the Chilean miners out, and Samsung and Apple have new phones out - but no way either of them could ever knock Nokia off their perch as the #1 mobile phone brand.
  16. just signed up to report this same bug. sent an email to support but thought i might get quicker results here. been using ccleaner pro for years. .zero problems until this. it started as soon as i updated and opened chrome. did update from within the program/"check for updates" method after i received an email alert that an update was ready. as others have stated, stalling and some micro freeze ups with skidish mouse action. hoping a patch or new update will be available soon. can't use auto clean because ccleaner needs to be closed for chrome to work properly. not a huge deal short term as i can scan/clean manually until this is sorted out. want to make sure someone is on it at the very least. cheers
  17. Hi nukecad: I have no idea, but the File.org article at https://file.org/extension/part states: Perhaps the CCleaner installer OP sotiris downloaded was bundled with bloatware (e.g., Avast Free Antivirus, Chrome browser, etc) that triggered Firefox to break the download into multiple .part files with seemingly random filenames before the partial downloads were recombined. Perhaps ESET threw a false positive detection because the ESET virus definition set was out of date and hadn't whitelisted the CCleaner installer yet (OP sotiris notes they saw that detection "a while ago" and the image <here> shows the Reputation was "Discovered 1 week ago"). It's even possible OP sotiris downloaded the CCleaner installer from a third-party download site (e.g., CNET's download.com) that bundled the installer with suspicious software. See bjm_'s example in the Norton thread False Norton "Threat" PUA.Drivereasy Uninstalls Legitimate Windows Program !! where a DriverEasy installer downloaded directly from the DriverEasy site was not flagged as a PUA. However, the DriverEasy installer downloaded from a third-party download site (the download link in that thread was removed by a Norton Forum Mod as being potentially dangerous) had one of these odd file names (qfflb92n.exe.part) and SHA-2 hash that did not match the "safe" installer and was flagged as a PUA. This is all speculation on my part, and why Firefox would begin the download of a CCleaner installer into a folder called C:\Users\User\AppData\Local\Temp (I also thought that path looked odd - I don't have a C:\Users\User folder on my own machine, hidden or otherwise) and assign that odd WQchxgI name to the partial .exe.part file will probably remain a mystery unless the OP sotiris can recreate that PUA detection with a fresh download. ------------- 64-bit Win 10 Pro v1909 build 18363.900 * Windows Defender v4.18.2006.10 * Firefox ESR v68.11.0 * CCleaner Free Portable v5.69.7865
  18. I am using Windows XP, SP3. I have been using CC Cleaner and Defraggler for years, and so last night, I decided to give Speccy a try. The Speccy installer also installed Chrome, and I did not know it had done this until some time later. Chrome became my default browser. I did not want this as I am an enthusiastic Firefox user and had it set up with lots of bookmarks and menu customization. So I went into my Firefox, clicked on tools/options/advanced/check now in order to reset Firefox as my default. But clicking on a URL link in a Notetab Pro file opened the URL up in Chrome. I removed Chrome, but when I clicked on a URL in a NoteTab Pro file, Windows searched for Chrome despite this. So I went to my Windows start/control panel/add or remove programs/ and clicked on set program access and defaults/custom in order to set Firefox as my default. After that, clicking on a URL shortcut still defaulted to Chrome. So I clicked on my computer and clicked tools/folder options/file types and noted HTML files were assigned to be opened by Firefox. However, Windows still wanted to use Chrome to open the URL. Then I uninstalled Speccy, rebooted, and finally Windows understood Chrome was not my default browser. ************* I can't begin to tell you how annoying this whole time-wasting episode was. I think that foisting Chrome on the unwitting user as a "feature" of the Speccy installation, along with Chrome's aggressive and obnoxious attempt to make it the default browser will annoy many other people. If the Speccy installer was deliberately designed to install Chrome without the user's permission and knowledge and this was not just user-error on my part, this is a terrible public-relations mistake. As it is, I no longer can recommend Piriform products until I know this has been fixed or until I know it was just some dumb thing I did. I hope it was user error, so that I can continue to recommend Piriform, along with a caution to be aware that Chrome is offered during installation. My experience, however, was that I had to choose between having Speccy and being forced to use Chrome as my default instead of Firefox, or have Firefox and forgo Chrome. With respect, Speccy is not worth giving up Firefox as my default browser. ************* I hate to make this kind of posting as my introduction to the forum. But when I sent a private email to Piriform according to the suggestion on the website, I got an automatically generated email that said, "If you have a suggestion, then please post it in our forum. For support with the forum, please contact one of the forum moderators. Sorry about this automated response, but we're super busy creating great applications " My preference would have been to handle this problem privately, but I couldn't do that without paying $24.95 USD for the privilege.

  19. To add an extension to CCleaner Browser: If you can add an extension to Chrome Browser using Windows 10 you should be able to use this method to install the extension to CCleaner Browser. Find a web page that is advertising the extension that you want to add and has a place to click to add the extension to Chrome. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/category/extensions may work to find the extension you want to use. Then paste the web address of that page into the CCleaner Browser and hit enter. Finally, click on "Add the extension to Chrome" and CCleaner will show a pop up telling you that you can continue and add the extension only if you accept the risks. Accept the risks and the extension has been added.
  20. Hi Imacri, This time I downloaded ccleaner exe file using Chrome (which doesn't use .part files) and ESET did not react at all when checked it. Not sure if the ccleaner authors have taken any action on their exe file, or it was a .part issue. Thanks anyway, Sotiris.
  21. That article seems to have been written in haste and is riddled with errors. Aside from calling us CCcleaner (with 3 "c"s ) they have a screenshot of an Avast offer with a checkbox that was discontinued back in October of last year in favour of the transparent accept/decline on a separate page: They have the correct screenshot of the AVG offer in the Technical Information section (same layout as above with two separate accept/decline buttons) but caption it referring to a "preselection" which would also suggest a lack of proofreading. We've reached out to Microsoft suggesting that they might want to check their homework. Their description of the Chrome precheck is accurate. It's been that way since 2010 and most people are used to it by now, but as mentioned in previous posts here it has been on our "to-do" list for a while to try and get that into the same accept/decline presentation as well.
  22. CCleaner installation also installed Google Chrome without mention or option. Wonder what else was installed? I no longer trust products from Piriform and will recommend against them wherever I can.
  23. FYI - the latest version of CCleaner is NOT removing the Chrome cookies... very distressing. Can you fix this?
  24. We now know there is a slowdown issue with the new version - if, and it seems only if, the CCleaner window is left open or minimised. Close the CCleaner window (after cleaning) and there is no issue. It's not unusual to ask someone to get their machine checked over if they are seeing/reporting strange behaviour that is affecting all of Windows. Strange behaviour affecting a whole machine is often/usually a sign of malware, so it needs to be ruled out first. I did the same with another user having this same slowdown issue and they did, once we had definitely ruled out any malware then we knew it wasn't that and could concentrate on tracking down the problem. However Dave was talking about the filepuma redirect that you got. A redirect like that may be a one off hijack and never happen again, (Tech support scammers often use those), or may be something in your browser. It isn't (normally) a file on your computer at all and an antivirus wouldn't find anything because where it is looking there is nothing to find. It could be something hiding in your browser or in a browser extension. If any similar redirect happens again then I'd try a scan with ADWCleaner. If you are using Chrome (any Chromium based browser) or Firefox then Malwarebytes Browser Guard can help protect against redirects and more.
  25. If you have 'every box under Chrome unchecked' in CCleaner then Custom Clean will leave Chrome alone altogether. Health Check will still clear some things Chrome related, which will include cookies and so willl log you out of some websites. That's a security measure so that if someone else gets their hands on your machine then they are not automatically logged into your accounts just by opening Chrome. As you have Chrome unchecked in Custom Clean then I suspect that you have Chrome itself set to automatically clear your cookies on closing, thus logging you out of sites when you close Chrome. (Again it's the same security measure). See this for how to change those settings in Chrome: https://www.howtogeek.com/137681/how-to-automatically-clear-private-data-when-you-close-your-browser/ If you use 'Private Browsing' that also will not save your 'logged-in' status with a website when you close Chrome, and so you will have to log into sites again next time you open Chrome. (Again it's the same security measure). All these different things log you out of websites when you close/clean the browser for a reason, it's not realy safe to automatically log into websites. Imagine if your laptop automatically logs into your bank account when you visit the website, then imagine that someone steals (or finds) your laptop and so is straight into your bank account without any password, your money would be there for long. It doesn't have to be your bank account, they would have access to all your emails, could send emails from your name, could post things on your Facebook page, etc. etc.
