  1. Hi: I found what was causing the problem of CC not cleaning all the Temporary Files and I must admit the problem was caused by no one but me. The reason the laptop was not cleaning the files was that I had the Setting under Options > Advanced > checked to "Only delete files in Windows Temp folders older than 48 hours". As soon as I removed the check CC naturally did what it was suppose to do and removed all files regardless of age. I apologize for this original posting, as it was only my having an erroenous setting by me that was allowing CC not to clean all Temp files
  2. Hi: Please disregard my prior email, as deleting Suggested Sites from IE8 Favorites Bar did not resolve the issue. Affter two days Disk Cleanup now indicates 155kb in Temporary Files on my laptop after running CC I now have no idea as to what is causing this problem with CC cleaning Temp Files, as it still persists on my laptop, bot not my desktop. I apologize for my prior false report as to the fix. Will continue to search for the cause.... ColTom2
  3. Hi: I think that I have found the cause of CC not cleaning all the Temporary Files and it did have to do with IE8. As I orginally reported this problem was applicable both my Sony desktop and Toshiba laptop. However, sometime in the past few weeks the problem disappeared from my desktop and was only happening on the laptop. I thought most likely that I had changed a setting in IE8 possibly on the desktop and not the laptop so today I started comparing settings etc. It appears the reason for CC not finding these files, which by the way has grown from original 143kb to 15
  4. Hi: I do not have "Slimbrowser" installed, but I do have Firefox 3.5 along with IE8, and this issue persists after upgrade to latest CC version 2.23.993. ColTom2
  5. Hi: My actions as indicated in my prior email did nothing to resolve anything. Now the size of the Temporary Files remaining after running CCleaner is 148kb on both desktop and laptop. Hopefully Piriform can find where these files are being generated from and resolve the issue within the current settings. ColTom2
  6. Hi Alan: Thanks for your reply. I had previously thought of what you mentioned applicable Disk Cleanup and trying to identify the Temporary files in question. However, when you select or highlight Temporary files the "View Files" option disappears and you cannot view them. I agree if I knew where these files were I might could better see if I could change my CCleaner settings to include them. I sorta feel like these files are currently running under CCleaner's radar, as my settings are pretty inclusive and are the same as prior to IE8 upgrade in which I never had this problem
  7. Hi Dennis: Thanks for your comments; however, Suggested Sites was one of the first items in IE8 that I turned off after I upgraded to it. So it's not Suggested Sites, but it is some other item I feel within IE8 that CC is bypassing or not currently finding. Hopefully they can find the cause and include it in the cleaning process of Temporary Files to resolve this issue. ColTom2
  8. Hi: I believe this problem started immediately after I upgraded to IE 8 in which CC ver 2.22.968 does not clean ALL Temporary Files. Prior to upgrade to IE 8 I could run CC with my current settings and it would clean ALL Temporay Files. Now when I run it twice to get it to indicate "0 byres removed" and then run Microsoft Disk Cleanup it files Temporary Files that CC has not removed. Normally the files are approximately 143 kb in size that Disk Cleanup finds. This occurrs on both my Sony desktop running XP MCE(2005) SP3 and Toshiba laptop running XP Home Edition SP3. Ag
  9. Hi: You did not indicate what version of IE that you have installed, but I would almost bet that it is IE8 and not IE7. If it is indeed IE8 then you will just have to live with the problem, as I had reported this problem sometime back. I got tired of waiting for a fix, as well as some other IE8 problems that were not CCleaner related, and decided just to revert back to IE7 which resolved everything. I am sure that Piriform is working on resolving it's relationship with IE8. ColTom2
  10. Hi: I finally gave up on IE8 on my desktop and reverted back to IE7. Everything with CCleaner is now back to normal. Piriform sure has a lot of work to do in preparation for when IE8 does come out of Beta and into the Windows Update system. There are far to many bugs with CCleaner and IE 8 currently, even though I have left IE8 on my laptop just for testing purposes. The 5.0MB and .28MB files were like "phantom" files as I could never find them in an effort to delete them. I could delete the 5.0MB file 3 or 4 times in succession with CCleaner and why it would keep appearing
  11. Hi: I was hoping that the latest version 2.17.583 would have addressed the issues that I originally reported after installing IE8, but it did not. I still have erratic cleaning results when I run CCleaner that I never had prior to installing IE8. The 5.0MB file along with another .28MB appears frequently after running CCleaner. Repeated cleaner runs will normally delete the .28MB file on second attempt, but the 5.0MB file might appear 3-4 times before it finally indictaes "0" bytes. Also after running CCleaner until I get "0" bytes and then immediately running MS Disk Cleanup
  12. I have some additional info since my last posting. I now feel certain that IE8 has caused CC version 2.16.830 to not clean Temporary Internet Files properly. Apparently a fix is required by CC to correct the problem of cleaning Temporary Internet Files when IE8 is installed. While the CC installed on my Sony desktop runnimg XP MCE(2005) SP3 does not identify the file causing the problem my Toshiba laptop running XP Home SP3 does. The file string of the problem file is C:\Documents and Settings\(User)\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\SuggestedSites.dat 5.0MB in size. Suggested S
  13. I agree with you that the problem needs to be identified and solved. The more that I remove and then put back the tick applicable Internet Explorer Temporary Internet Files and then Run Cleaner I now feel the problem is more within the way that CC ver 2.16.830 is identifying these files rather IE8 per se. Again if CC identified the file string applicable these files in question it would be much easier to resolve. Also the lack of identification by CC could be part of the problem. I suppose an interim measure would be to remove the tick from Temp Internet Files and then randomly put
  14. I have tried all your suggestions and many more. To begin with you can't turn off/on Suggested Sites as it is not listed under Tools options even though that is what MS tells you. So I just totally deleted it from the IE8 Favorites Bar and that way I knew is was not turned on. I now know how to delete and add it back to the Favorites Bar. I also have completely deleted all IE Temp Internet files, but for some reason CC lists 2 files now normally after Run Cleaner for a total of 5.28MB. It will delete the .28MB file and then the 5.0MB file reappears. Sometimes it does it while other times i
  15. I am sorry to report that the original problem is back again today so the fix that I thought worked does not. It still on occasion shows the Internet History 5.0MB file again after original Run CCleaner. I still believe that this problem is associated with IE8.
