  1. This is all you really need. I typically set Storage Sense to Once a Week when I turn it on for client computers. Disk Cleanup takes care of everything that really should be touched. Leave Delivery Optimization alone if you have more than one PC on your local network, as updates can be shared from an up-to-date PC on the network.
  2. Adding on, let's not forget that avast (who also owns AVG) cannot be trusted either: https://www.lunarsoft.net/featured/mozilla-pulls-avast-software-addons-for-excessive-tracking
  3. I'm glad HWInfo doesn't push that partnership at all, just that one button which I've never pressed until you brought it to my attention. CCleaner has had issues for years, wish Microsoft left it flagged for the crapware it is. https://www.lunarsoft.net/featured/infected-ccleaner-downloads-official-servers I too wrote about how CCleaner has become obsolete. The registry cleaner is snake oil, don't like how they insert a method to skip the UAC check either, that's shady behaviour. https://www.lunarsoft.net/featured/ccleaner-s-usage-on-windows-has-become-obsolete
  4. It may be detecting those domains (or simply the fact that the hosts file has changed) as a potential malicious change. Truth be told, the hosts file is not meant to block domains and is a common misconception/misuse of the hosts file. It's main intent is to help direct a (few) domains to new IP addresses, such as in the case that DNS has not propagated with updates. If you'd like to learn more about it, you can read about Blocking Malware and Advertisements Safely.
  5. @fr33tux Only when threats are detected. I'll keep an eye on it to see if it's still doing it, too.
  6. Additionally, the close button as seen in your attached screenshot does not actually let you close that dialogue box.
  7. Under Settings > Basic Repair Options... All settings are set to On. Video example of what happens:
  8. @Elisabeth please reread my post. I'm sorry but your response sounds like a canned response and that my message was not read. Specifically, reread this segment quoted below: To reiterate, this means... When I click Clean & Reboot Later AdwCleaner still forces a reboot as soon as cleaning is complete. As such, it is not honouring where I would control when the reboot happens. When I click the red X at the top of the options for cleaning, it still forces a reboot as soon as cleaning is complete. Despite that the X was clicked to signify not performing and cleaning or rebooting at all. The original post is stating the expected results, what actually happens, and the steps to reproduce this bug. Thanks.
  9. This may be because of a setting that gets enabled, such as under Settings > Basic Repair Actions. I've noticed this consistently. Whether you click Clean & Reboot Later or the red X at the top right, it will still clean and reboot. There's also a minor display bug for the &.
  10. Just to add a bit of humour to this. Looks like Google needs to step it up a notch! https://imgur.com/VWoExLX https://i.imgur.com/VWoExLX.mp4
  11. The anti-spam/captcha is the key issue, not really that of IPS. As such, it's actually Google's fault for such a poorly implemented method of stopping bots. It's annoying for anyone and everyone. They were supposed to come out with one where you never had to click anything, called Invisible Recaptcha. I now see they're working on a version 3, which sounds promising. No one wants to be harassed by unnecessary clicks and puzzles.
