✔ Best Answer
Install a free program called CCleaner. then first, check under the tools/uninstall section and see if there are any Lexmark items left for removal - uninstall any you find. Next, check under the tools/startup section and see if there are any startup programs with Lexmark in the title or publisher - disable or delete them (use disable if you want to check the results first). Finally run the Cleaner and Registry cleaner sections (they will just help your system run better anyway)

If you follow the link to CCleaner (click on the word in my first post), it is on FileHippo - it is totally free, the software is a very good tool that is often recommended on this site.

If you've googled for it and found a bogus version then would you please let Piriform, the authors, know.

ccleaner is, has, and probably always will be free. Peg, you are very puzzled indeed.

Thank you for clarifying that, I'm still not sure what you clicked on though, the reason I usually point people directly to the Filehippo site is that there is a nice obvious 'download now' button and no 'click to scan now' buttons which some sites have - these are often paid-for scans and nothing to do with the program you're downloading. Maybe I'll have to look for an even more obvious download site.

Clicked on Johns link and it was clean. Went straight to the usual Filehippo site, which had no "Scan Now" button. Here's a more direct link. It goes to: http://download.piriform.com/ccsetup309.exe.

Please let us know if you found someone's advice to be helpful.

funny thing is, if we don't give the EXACT download link people always seem to download something else on a site, usually a pay trial....they just don't pay attention to what they are supposed to download.
Here is how a filehippo link should be made if you want a poster to download ccleaner:
http://www.filehippo.com/download/f...
that way they don't click on some other registry cleaner or whatever.

The link you've (XPUser) put up is possibly incorrect, it still needs the user to click on the CCleaner title amongst many others and that just takes you to the download page I originally linked to. Sci-guy's suggestion of a direct download link is fine, but personally I'm always wary of links that immediately start a download.

I'm still not clear as to where the confusion came in the first place. One of the reasons I always link to Filehippo is because going direct to the Piriform site is even more confusing because it looks as if you have to pay for the software. Try & make things as simple as possible and what happens..................

And we still don't know if the OP's problems was totally sorted either.....

I can see the full link address, but as soon as the page opens, the link gets truncated to the main filehippo page - same with Google & IE. Copying & pasting the link has the same effect - as you say, strange.

Johnr, yes, I see what you mean...hmmmm....I originally posted my answer using the orca browser and I never tried the others like you did....I think Justin may have altered something on the website....those links like you said show up when you hover them, but then get shortened when they are executed....because none of my browsers get that download now....not even Orca....hmmm
