  1. Thank you guys! Issue with local storage is fixed in 5.38!
  2. Ok, did some additional testing. CCleaner DOES appear to be cleaning cookies in Chrome. I believe the problem is Chrome is now saving 'Local Storage' in the same location as cookies. People are navigating to chrome://settings/siteData and still seeing data in there. Since that's were cookies are ALSO stored, people are assuming CCleaner is not cleaning them (again, I'm guilty here too). I THINK CCleaner previously did clean ALL data from this location in the past, but I'm not 100% sure. I'd like one of the developers to chime in here, and offer some insight on IF CCleaner should, or should not be cleaning Local Storage data in Chrome that is saved within the same path as cookies, and what information actually resides within that local storage.
  3. I have CCleaner set to save a total of 4 cookies under the setting you mention. Let me offer some more info that I just learned: Chrome appears to now categorize cookies into 3 categories: Cookies, Channel ID, and Local Storage. CCleaner appears to be cleaning cookies that are classified as Cookies and Channel ID. CCleaner however is still not touching Local Storage cookies. All of the above is listed here in Chrome: chrome://settings/siteData EDIT: I see the heading for the above referenced path in Chrome reads "All cookies and site data." It looks like they lumped cookies and site data into a single location in Chrome--WHATEVER site data is, I'm honestly not sure...but it doesn't appear to contain any cookies. Is it possible CCleaner IS now actually cleaning all cookies, yet leaving those entries classified as 'Local Storage' because that data is NOT cookies? Maybe people (myself included) were mistaking what's listed under chrome://settings/siteData all as cookie data when it's actually cookies AND Chrome 'Local Storage' data?
  4. That's not an option for me either. CCleaner is cleaning all Chrome temp files, but still not any cookies.
  5. Chrome cookies are still not being cleaned in v 5.36.
  6. Thanks for your reply. Yes, I've exhausted the steps in that link: I'm not signed into Chrome with my Google account on either of my 3 computers. When I have signed into Chrome in the past, I actually make it a point to ensure my history is not synced--just bookmarks. Background apps in Chrome are also disabled. As for 5.33, no scans reported any infection. My main PC is 64-bit anyway. I'm not even sure if I had installed 5.33 on my 32-bit laptop but that same laptop actually runs Avast, so I figure it would have caught something. Was uninstalling 5.33 sufficient to wipe all traces? Back to the cookies, I'm seeing this same behavior across 2 64-bit Win10 machines, and 1 32-bit Win7 machine. I'm happy to provide more info as needed.
  7. At least it's not just me... although it skips 'local storage' across 3 different computers for me. This is the same problem I posted about here too: https://forum.piriform.com/index.php?showtopic=48856
  8. Hello, long time user but first poster here... I wanted to report the latest version of CCleaner is not cleaning any cookies in the latest version of Chrome. History is removed just fine, though. This looks like a similar issue that we saw a month or so ago. I first noticed this when returning to YouTube after running CCleaner and seeing my volume for videos was still set the same (instead of being set the whole way up as it does with no cache). I then went into my cookie settings within Chrome, and there were thousands of cookies still present. Oddly enough, I still have to re-log back into websites after running CCleaner, yet all cookies are still present in the Chrome cache. Youtube for example, remembers my volume settings, but I still have to log back in. I've been able to replicate this same problem across 2 different computers and operating systems. I also have the "Continue running background apps" disabled, and I am not signed in to Chrome with my Google account on either PC. Here are my specs: Chrome v. 61.0.3163.91 - 64 bit CCleaner v. 5.34.6207 Windows 10 Pro v.1703 64 bit Other PC is Windows 7 SP2 32 bit. Chrome and CCleaner versions are the same as above but 32 bit. I'm happy to provide any other additional info. Thanks very much EDIT: I wanted to add that I tested reverting back to the previous 2 versions of CCleaner (533 and 532) testing each one at a time and the results are the same across different PCs. Cookie problem seems to be the result of recent Chrome updates.
