  1. Ok, it is now Feb 24, 2021 and Edge Chromium Not Getting Cleaned on Close issue posted back in Dec 2020 is still not resolved. No matter what selection you make under Options - Smart Cleaning - Enable automatic browser cleaning nothing works for Edge Chromium (except maybe 'Disable' which does nothing). Edge Chromium is the only installed browser on the system. For Edge Chromium - If you change the setting from Automatically Clean on Closing with Notification to Prompt me to clean on closing, it works one time and then will not work again. Switch it back to the previous selection - nothing. The only setting that seems to works is Disabled. There has been at least one or more updates to CCleaner since Dec 2020 and this problem still persists. Once you close Edge and nothing happens, if you see CCleaner in the hidden icons area and move the pointer to it - it disappears. Other times it does not. Open Outlook check mail, look at mail, click on link in Outlook mail message opens Edge to that site, close Outlook, then close Edge (now all apps are closed - there are no open apps on the desktop). CCleaner does not run. Manually start CCleaner - go to Custom Clean - Analyze and the results show that CCleaner did not run. Internet Explorer, Edge Chromium, Windows Explorer, all have items to be deleted. This really needs to be fixed - 4-6 months of this ongoing issue shows CCleaner engineering is not addressing this issue. And if this feature isn't working correctly what else in CCleaner is not working correctly? At least when Microsoft messes up and update they do get a fix out. This is getting to be ridiculous.
  2. Hi @nukecad, Thank you for the response. It sheds some light on this mystery. Here is another interesting tidbit. There have been many times in the past when I notice CCleaner did not perform the automatic clean, which caused me to go over to the System Tray and select the 'up-arrow' to 'Show Hidden Icons'. Here is the weird part: Left click on the up-arrow, to show the icons, and the CCleaner icon is there. Move the mouse pointer up to the CCleaner icon and it disappears. At that point, if I am concerned about cleaning, I will manually select CCleaner from the 'Start' menu. But that's not all, there are many times when I do a power up and the CCleaner icon is not there in the 'hidden icons' of the system tray. Yet I will get the pop-up notice to clean based on the size I set under settings. Or I might get an 'update is available' notice. Perform the update with no change in behavior, the CCleaner icon is not there. And of course when I want it to happen, it doesn't. Right now the check on the system tray shows the CCleaner icon. The last few times I've closed Edge I get the automatic clean pop up window. Will start checking the system tray hidden icons upon initial power up and randomly during the time I'm on to see if there is a subtle pattern in behavior.
  3. Yes, "continue running background apps when Microsoft Edge is closed" is turned off. I went through the forum looking for posts in this area that could identify what is wrong. And settings are in agreement with those recommended. This behavior is also present when there are multiple applications running on the desktop, (e.g., word or excel) and Edge, AND when there is only Edge running with a single tab. I should also add that this behavior has been present for quite a while, not just recently. Here I am talking a year or more. There are times when CCleaner runs perfectly, and at other times this inconsistent behavior becomes the norm. I have not watched it closely enough to tie it to certain updates, either CCleaner or Windows. So this has been occurring for quite a while, past updates in both CCleaner and Windows.
  4. Hello, Running Windows 10 Pro v20H2 - updates current with CCleaner v5.75.8238. Under CCleaner - Smart Cleaning - Enable Smart Cleaning (selected) - Enable Automatic Browser Cleaning (selected) - Edge Chromium - Automatically clean on closing with notification (selected). Actually all browsers are selected under Enable Automatic Browser Cleaning. Edge is the only Browser installed on the system. When I close Edge, I do not ALWAYS get the notification pop up window that CCleaner has cleaned Edge. Wait a minute or so, manually start CCleaner, run analyze, and sure enough, there is Edge listed with the usual assortment of files. Manual clean takes care of this with no issue. But I should not have to run the manual clean. And yet, there are other times when I close Edge I get the pop up notification that that Edge has been cleaned. I would expect to get this action (the clean notification on close) every time, as defined in Enabled Smart Cleaning selections. This is an error situation and should not be happening.
  5. Logged on to report a different issue and saw this post. Ran Malwarebytes against CCleaner app (v5.50.6911) - no issues found. Same with Windows Defender. Would like to know results with different security products?
  6. When I run CCLeaner manually in 'Cleaner' mode and select 'Analyze' I never get Microsoft Edge statistics. I do get IE, Windows temp files, Applications files, etc., but never Edge. Under 'Windows' all items under Microsoft Edge are selected as well as all items under Internet Explorer. All other selections are at the CCleaner recommended settings. I run CCleaner manually from time to time to get a feel for the amount of 'junk' or 'trash' files building or being generated on my Windows 10 Pro workstation. The workstation is up to date with all patches as well as CCleaner (v5.44.6577). When I select 'Run Cleaner', the first action displayed is cleaning Edge files (i.e. history). Yet this cleaning status never shows as statistical files in the 'Analyze' mode. Edge statistics should show under Analyze.
  7. I have CCleaner Pro v5.31.6105 installed on Windows 10 Creator update. The Windows update also include significant changes to Edge. For CCleaner under Options I have Enable Browser Monitoring checked. For both Edge and IE I have Automatically clean on closing with notification selected. Under Cleaner; everything is checked under Edge and IE; nothing is checked under Windows Explorer, under System; Empty Recycle Bin, Temporary Files, Clipboard, Memory Dumps, Chkdsk File Fragments are checked, under Advanced nothing is checked. I noticed that prior to the Windows Creator update and under the previous version of CCleaner Pro, that I was not always getting the CCleaner notices when I closed Edge. Prior to this CCleaner was always rock solid. A feature update to Windows 10 was installed 6/11/17. Then updates KB4022725, KB4022405, KB4022730, were installed 6/14/17, and KB4020821 on 6/12/17 . The current version of CCleaner was also installed around this time. The current version behavior is the same as the previous. CCleaner is not providing the clean notices upon closure of Edge. My Windows 10 Creator update exhibited the same behavior as some threads in this forum have already described. It was not a clean first time install. The update failed. Windows reverted to previous version, 2 days later I babysat the update and everything from a Windows perspective went fine. I've not noticed any ill behavior of the OS since this install completed successfully. I even used CCleaner to clean the registry (created backup) and still all seems fine with the exception CCleaner's normal behavior under the settings I have selected.
  8. Thank you for the reply. And yes all the items you mentioned have been ticked. There is no AV software installed. This is a basic grounds up upgrade of a fresh install of Vista Ult to Win 7 Ult. Then Windows patches to Win 7. No additional or third party software installed with the exception of Defraggler. My other Win 7 system (albeit it is 32 bit and Home version) has AV and numerous other SW products installed and Defraggler runs as expected. I have not tried Safe Mode.
  9. I upgraded my system from Windows Vista Ultimate to Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 (64 bit). The Windows Vista was a fresh re-load of the original SW that came with the system. Drive was reformatted prior to installation. The system is configured with a 256GB HD and 8GB RAM. After the initial Win 7 Ult upgrade all important Windows patches were installed through Windows Update. Most optional patches were also selected with the exception of the language paks. Defraggler was then installed and the C: drive analyzed and as you might guess with over 100s of Windows patches the drive showed over 57% fragmentation, disk space was only 27% used, so plenty of free space. Here is the issue. Next selected 'Defrag' and then let Defraggler got to work. Immediately Defraggler builds a file list. Then starts the defragging process. Current statistics indicate that the number of fragmented files is decreasing and number of fragments is decreasing. Time to finish is high over 7 hours. Coming back after several hours to monitor progress I see files being read but no decrease in fragmented files or fragments. Disk activity is heavy. Time to completion is showing 5 minutes. Waiting another hour Current statistics has not changed. Time to completion has not changed. Waiting two more hours fragmented files is down by 2, fragments slightly, time to completion unchanged. More waiting - no changes. Finally stop Defraggler and restart. New analysis shows less fragmentation and fewer fragments. Select 'Defrag' again and start. File list is built and there is an immediate decrease in fragmented files count - around 10. Time to completion 1 minute. Then no changes - for hours. Repeat stop restart and observe an immediate decrease in files fragmented and then appears to hang again. Very little progress for hours - maybe a file an hour. No other activity user started activity is running at these times - it is whatever Windows is running by default. No new user accounts. Login is default Admin. Computer power settings changed to not sleep while plugged in so that Defraggler has time to run. Certainly time to completion is way off. And I cannot understand the other behavior. Defraggler has never behaved this way on my other Win 7 Home 32 bit system. Can you help?
