  1. Actually I was a little bit fooled. They still came back. But are slightly different from before. I still get INetCache\IE\GDWMIM04 and INetCache\IE\ASWAFAKO but the difference is this time instead of the file names coming as Suggestions[1] they are coming as View[1]. Uninstalling Internet Explorer 11 reduced the frequency of these INetCache from loading. But they still come in from time to time. But maybe once in a few hours rather than few minutes. Now I tested it on my other computers Windows 8.1 and 7 which also come with these things even when Google Chrome is assigned as default web browser. I don't know how it is on Windows 10. I heard that on Win 10 Internet Explorer is completely uninstallable as it has Edge as the new default. But it doesn't seem like Internet Explorer is the issue here, unless of-course Windows is silently loading it up. The size of these are very small less than 5KB so it is no big deal. Just wanted to make sure they aren't triggered by a virus, I guess I can at least rule that out as it is happening with the other computers as well.
  2. I solved the problem, finally! I simply uninstalled Internet Explorer 11 from Windows 8.1 by going to Control Panel--->Programs and Features--->Turn Features on or off and then uncheck the box next to Internet Explorer 11. Hit ok and then upon restart of the computer Windows will have removed Internet Explorer. Following this operation the INetCache has so far remained at 0 bytes! It has not come back yet and has no signs of doing so! Before it would happen immediately every few minutes without even using or launching Internet Explorer. Now I've tested this for more than 3 hours so far and this issue is no longer occurring. Disk Cleanup shows temporary internet files as 0 bytes and CCleaner no longer shows the Internet Explorer Temporary Internet Files. The \INetCache\IE\ folder is also empty. This is a problem related to my PC, I think. I tested this on my dads Windows 8.1 64-bit system and it does not happen on his computer. My mums Windows 7 64-bit PC also does not make it happen either. I've been using CCleaner for more than a decade now and in the past I also do not remember this happening. This definitely wasn't normal. Now I don't know if reinstalling Internet Explorer will fix it. But since I don't need it, I don't think I'll bother to make the experiment.
  3. Hello, I've been having this problem since forever since having Windows 8.1 64-bit installed on my system 4 years ago. I use CCleaner for a long time. I don't use Internet Explorer. Google Chrome is always my default Internet Browser. Yet for some obnoxious reason whenever I go to analyze I always get stuff like that as shown below. C:\Users\ms\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache\IE\ASWAFAKO C:\Users\ms\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache\IE\GDWMIM04 C:\Users\ms\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache\IE\GDWMIM04 It gets erased but about 5-10 minutes later the INetCache shows up with these stuff again. These things seem to load up by themselves even if I erase them or restart my computer! Is this normal? Shouldn't the INetCache\IE\ folder be always empty considering that I don't use Internet Explorer at all? These temporary internet files even load up via Disk Cleaner and absolutely every time I load up Disk Cleaner the Temporary Internet Files will show at least around 2KB of data in the C:\Users\ms\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache\IE folder. However, when I click view files it will state that this folder is empty even though it is still occupied with 2KB of data. There is no apparent malware or virus that I can find on my computer. These issue started happening on day one 4 years ago. I have not reformatted Windows in the last 4 years since I have built this computer with the Windows 8.1 64-bit Pro OS. These things loaded up again as I am writing this forum topic.. C:\Users\ms\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache\IE\ASWAFAKO C:\Users\ms\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache\IE\GDWMIM04 C:\Users\ms\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache\IE\GDWMIM04 C:\Users\ms\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache\IE\MD7CHS43 These things that keep loading up apparently appear as Suggestions[1][2][3]. Can anyone explain what are these stuff and why do they always load up even when I am not using Internet Explorer?
  4. Problem solved! Unbelievable!! I just got a response from Google Chrome Community Specialist Matt from the Google Forums. Turns out the problem was indeed corrupt profile that wasn't being successfully cleared. He said that what I needed to do was to Reset Sync! "Reset sync to clear your data from the server and remove your passphrase. This will not clear data from your devices. Sign back in to Chrome to start syncing." After that I went to C:\Users\\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data. I deleted the entire User Data folder. Then the next thing I did was CLEAR BROWSING DATA. This now successfully reset the Hosted App Data back to 0. After that when I logged back in again as normal using my Google Account it's back to a fresh state they no longer appear in CCleaner Browser Plugins and they are also not listed anymore in Hosted App Data. What's actually more amazing is that I actually found out another better solution on how to manually remove those short-cut sites without having to completely clear the browsing data! So that way you can delete them from appearing in the CCleaner Browser Plugins and from your Google Account sync data. Solution for that is to go to the Google Chrome Address tab type in chrome://apps/ hit enter. Then right click on the created short-cut apps and click Remove from Chrome. This allows you to remove the short-cut icons manually and gets rid off them from the CCleaner Browser Plugins Google Chrome list. Now you can have any created desktop short-cut icons with their web icon created on desktop without these names appearing in CCleaner! This now automatically removes them from the CCleaner Browser Plugins while also maintaining the desktop short-cut icons of any websites that you've created. Never realized the solution was that simple!!!
  5. Did exactly that, did not work! None of the options worked. I think it has something to do with the Hosted App Data. These are the 31 websites that are listed such as ***LJs LiveOnSat Football - Soccer Schedules on TV. They appear as Hosted App Data and they are exactly the same ones that are listed in the CCleaner Browser Plugins Google Chrome tab. So even after I click the CLEAR BROWSING DATA button these fail to be erased. Only search history from address bar and passwords are erased. But the Hosted App Data that appear in the Google Chrome Extensions folder cannot be erased. I've had no success in clearing them off besides removing the attached logged account from the google browser. But this doesn't really solve the problem because after logging back to the Chrome Browser using the Google Account these Hosted App Data web plugins get re-synced back in making them all reappear back in the CCleaner Browser Plugins. I don't know how to contact Google Support. You can try for yourself, you'll probably have the same problem... Unless I am doing something wrong.
  6. Hello, I'm new to these forums. Just registered because I wanted to ask regarding this issue which I could not find anywhere on the internet. This is a problem I have detected for a long time now but I have never found a solution to this. I even downloaded the CCleaner Professional Edition and that also can't delete them. As you can see in my CCleaner Google Chrome Browser Plugins it is impossible to delete the entire history of previous shortcut icons that I added for say last year. For example the eCRATER.com, Gumtree.com were shortcut icons I added last year to desktop. So I no longer need them. So despite deleting them, resetting browser history, etc. This gets re-imported back to my google chrome browser extensions plugins as soon as I login to my Google Account again. If I select the option to REMOVE THIS PERSON only then this data gets erased from the browser extensions plugins. But if I login to the Google Chrome Browser again it re-syncs it all and there is nothing I can do about it. Okay why is this a problem? Well this creates an infinite loop of browser web links that can never ever be erased unless I probably delete my entire google account but this is impractical. Since I have Google Play Store purchases which I will lose if I do that. CCleaner cannot delete them because it says "Some of the selected items cannot be changed as they are protected by the browser". I would like to know how do I delete those browser extension weblinks from my account so that they don't get re-synced everytime I login to the web browser login screen from google account? So that way they don't come back on the CCleaner Browser Plugins Extension list. Many thanks.
