  1. I frequently run CCLeaner to get rid of my junk and when I ran it today I happened to check my cookies after cleaning and there were still cookies present and this has never happened before. I ran the cleaner again and they were still there. I selected them all and clicked delete and they disappeared but when I clicked on another menu item and then rre-selected cookies again they returned with me not even opening my browser. I then went to BRAVE and deleted all of my cookies and ran CCleaner again they were still there. All of these cookies end with safeframe.googlesyndication.com. Can an
  2. When I tried to clean my PC and my laptop today. I was alerted to the fact that CCleaner could not fully clean EDGE because of certain settings controlled by the registry and/or group policy. I was linked to the following page https://www.ccleaner.com/docs/ccleaner/troubleshooting/how-to-disable-pre-launching-and-pre-loading-so-ccleaner-can-fully-clean-edge which gave instructions on how to change the registry to avoid this problem. However, when I tried following the instructions for the registry changes on my laptop the registry key mentioned does not exist. Specifically the MicrosoftEdge
  3. Thanks for the info. I don't know if anything else is using Edge but Cortana was on my system. I did a search on this issue and found PCWorld article about an app called EdgeDeflector and after installing the program I had Cortana do a search and instead of using Edge before the install, it used Firefox afterwards. Will see how CCleaner behaves now that it's installed. Perhaps it won't do anything differently as the program doesn't actually change anything regarding Edge it only deflects Cortana to use the default browser. Here's the link if anyone's interested. https://www.pcworld.c
  4. Everyone, I have noticed this about CCleaner and was wondering if anyone can explain this behavior. Up until recently, I was using Microsoft Edge as my default browser on my PC so I didn't find it unusual when CCleaner prompted me to force close Edge when cleaning my system. However about a week ago I switched to Firefox as my default browser. Although I still have Microsoft Edge installed, I've not used it since I changed over to Firefox but each and every time I run CCleaner I'm still getting prompts stating that the Edge browser is open and must be closed. Is CCleaner seeing so
  5. NukeCad, Thanks for the reply. I downloaded and installed 5.46 a few minutes ago and at least on the surface things appear to be OK. I noted that by default there are things that are still enabled by default when the product is installed that one will have to change in order to opt out of having the product monitor your usage of the product I can handle that as long as you can turn it off. The thing that I did notice was that with all that I've turned off CCleaner no longer runs in the background when you are finished with a cleaning session. This was a major requirement for me as my
  6. Last month CCleaner version 5.45 was removed from the download page due to some very negative, but justifiably true, stories published on the internet. Because of the concerns over privacy and the fact that I don't like uncontrollable software running in the background I uninstalled version 5.45 and back leveled my version to 5.44 even before Piriform back leveled the version in response to the criticism. Today I checked and there's a 5.46 version that is now the official downloadable version and I was wondering if the concerns reported on in the published criticisms have all been reso
