I keep getting a message telling me that I am not using the latest version of CCleaner and that I should download the available update.  

However, when I click on the link, all I get is an option to 'upgrade' and when I follow that, it's asking me for my details again and gives me the price for the upgrade.

What am I doing wrong please?

Many thanks.

Re: Update 5.64.7612  Pro

How do I get back to CCleaner before the update?

The update is slower and more difficult to use. I much prefer the clean efficient interface of the previous version. If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

Older builds are on the right hand side of the page.

Thanks for your help folks but I'm getting nowhere fast!

I have followed Tim's suggestion and said 'No thanks' but I can't see an option anywhere to download 5.64.7613, although I can see the Release Notes for that version.  Other than that, all I can see is the opportunity to download the 'Free' version, or buy the Professional Version (which I have) or to buy the 'Professional Bundle'

Sorry to be a pain.  Is there a direct link to the download available?

Thank you

If you already have a pro licence key then you simply download the free version and enter your licence key to upgrade it to Pro.

You can get it from the 'builds' page: https://www.ccleaner.com/ccleaner/builds

Once installed re-enter your key.
In CCleaner go to Options>About, click on 'Upgrade to pro', enter your name and key as first registered, and click 'Register'.

Hiya nukecad, thank you for your input and the link.  I did exactly as you suggested and I now have the latest version.  However, after downloading it and arriving at the screen shown in your post above, I entered all of my details that I used when I first registered the programme and a message came up stating the details as 'invalid'.  I then clicked on 'cancel' and it took me straight into the latest version.

All seems to be working OK, so many thanks to all for the assistance.  All very much appreciated.

Not sure why you got that invalid message if it's upgraded to Pro anyway?

Can you confirm that it's now running as Pro and if it is I'll flag it to the staff/developers.

Note that the "extra steps" in Health Check are a one-time introduction to what it does that you'll only see once.  For those preferring the "Classic" CCleaner interface there is still the "Custom Clean" option.

@Bluenose1940: Just checking, did you copy-past the licence key from your original order confirmation email or did you type them in by hand?  99% of registration problems that we see are transcription errors from "I"s looking like "1"s, "Z"s looking like "2"s, "S"s looking like "5"s etc.

Yes I always type them in by hand and never copy and paste.  I'm not sure that I still have access to the original email anyway.  I printed the original and always use that.

As I say, once I click on 'cancel' it takes me straight into the programme.  Can you tell from my attachment if I am actually still running the 'paid-for' version, even though it says FREE FOR HOME USE across the top.

Thanks again for the help.  Sorry if I appear a bit dim but, although I can cope reasonably well on a pc, I'm no techie man and am nearly 80!

The screenshot certainly says it's the Pro edition. But I note that it also says '(Unregistered)'.

I'm not sure about that, it's possibly running Pro in the 14 day trial mode?

I'd try entering your key again, being careful about the letters/numbers thing.

Good to hear it was that simple.
