  1. The problem has not improved at all from the last version of CCleaner. It still randomly skips some, or completely skips all Edge files. I've tried turning Edge on and off in the background, and restarting to make sure it's set that way as well, but it makes no difference afterwards using CCleaner, it sometimes works upon a restart. I also ran into a new issue, after using CCleaner a few times and testing to see if anything actually worked, and not just temporarily. I noticed upon opening Edge again, it would not display its normal page with news and such, nor would it display frequented sites like it normally does. I then tried clearing the history in Edge and it gave me the message "some data could not be deleted." Restarting my computer fixed the problem, but it only occurred after using this latest version of CCleaner. This hasn't happened to Edge before when using the previous version of CCleaner.
  2. I can recreate the same thing, by restarting and still having Edge running the background. It only temporarily works after a restart, but CCleaner still has the same problem and will continue to skip Edge directories afterwards, the problem is CCleaner will sometimes delete these directories and for some random reason, other times it will not. The problem still persists, and most of the time CCleaner still skips Edge even with the latest update, it seems to have made no real difference. I was experiencing the same problems with the last version.
  3. Seems to be a weird bug in general. I can also clean them sometimes, if I just choose the directories individually by right clicking after I've analyzed, but like your solution, mine does not work all the time. Sometimes it will skip it, sometimes it will clean it by doing this.​ I figured it was maybe because Edge runs in the background along with other apps, but I've turned off all apps from running in the background and the problem still persists. I've also noticed that disk cleanup in 10 will not clean temporary internet files on my end, or has similar problems to CCleaner. The only reason I haven't used another browser is because I'm trying to keep this installation as clean as possible. I've also noticed if I view the summary of these files, some of them will be cleaned, as some of these folders are empty, even though CCleaner says they were skipped. Although then again, some files are still there in certain folders. So I don't know what it's doing, or if it is cleaning some of the files but not all.

    Do you mean the internet cache, just wondering cause CCleaner does not list temporary files specifically for Edge on my end. Although I think it's the same thing just worded differently. It isn't normal that's for sure. I do a lot of browsing in Edge as well, but my internet cache rarely ever goes over a few megabytes, or at least that's what CCleaner says. I think there is a bug in Windows 10 in general related to this, as even disk cleanup will not clean temporary internet files or is not reading them properly. I have noticed in disk cleanup my temporary internet files there have been growing, about close to 100MB now. No matter how many times I run disk cleanup it will not show those files as cleaned. I also have the bug where CCleanup will skip cleaning Edge. Sometimes I can get around it by only analyzing and then right clicking each Edge directory and cleaning them individually that way, but for the most part it will not clean it. This is true, but you can turn all of this stuff off. Before you even install Windows 10 or during the upgrade process, it asks you all of this and what to allow given you did not choose to express install. If you choose customize instead, it will give you the choice to turn all of this off. You can also do it within Windows 10. Go into settings, from the start menu, and go to privacy. You can turn it all off there. Reddit also has a detailed post about all the things you should turn off if you're concerned about your privacy in their Windows 10 section, and guides you through the process. It really isn't that hard, but I can see it being a problem for the typical computer user who doesn't read anything during the install process. Reddit also had a good community of techies who have dissected Windows and tracked all the information it is sending, if you are that concerned.
