  1. I've noticed that when I close Chrome browser I no longer get a notification. I then run cleaner manually and it finds cache etc to clean. It works as normal with Opera.
  2. That is not unusual for a Chromium based browser (or any modern browser come to that). They tend to launch a number of processes and then add a process for each new tab. (My Firefox is currently running 11 processes, 6 of which are tabs). Any browser can become slow at times, for various reasons from slow internet, to clashing extensions/processes, to having too many tabs open. Getting more advanced your AV and firewall settings can also slow connections down, especially for something that's newly installed. As CCleaner Browser is Chromium based then try some of the suggestions
  3. Progressively, I noticed it was taking longer and longer to cleanup Google Chrome after closing the browser. There was a tremendous amount of hard drive activity during the analyze phase. I learned the directory named "C:\Users\Username\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Code Cache\js" had accumulated approximately 250,000 files. I can find no reason online why files accumulate in this directory. Regardless of why the files are written to that directory, why doesn't CCleaner remove them? I removed them manually and Google Chrome still operates just fine. Additionally, CCleaner
  4. It seems to be happening with google chrome, I do a custom clean and the history is still there when I check google chrome again?
  5. @Mstar84 If you are using Windows 10 2004, (have you recently updated Windows?) with Chrome as your browser then it may be a bug in Chrome itself that is losing your passwords. See this: https://techdows.com/2020/06/chrome-issues-on-windows-10-may-2020-update.html
  6. If you have 'every box under Chrome unchecked' in CCleaner then Custom Clean will leave Chrome alone altogether. Health Check will still clear some things Chrome related, which will include cookies and so willl log you out of some websites. That's a security measure so that if someone else gets their hands on your machine then they are not automatically logged into your accounts just by opening Chrome. As you have Chrome unchecked in Custom Clean then I suspect that you have Chrome itself set to automatically clear your cookies on closing, thus logging you out of sites when you clo
  7. @HugoMCould you clarify the problem that you are experiencing? After you open CCleaner Browser go to the link to that extension on the Chrome Web store and you click "Add to Chrome" it would add as an extension to CCleaner Browser. Are you seeing an error message of some sort when you do this?
  8. Video will start to play and then just stops. An error message pops us saying, " Sorry, we are having trouble playing this video." Videos play fine in Google Chrome on Faceback. They just stopped playing in CCleaner browser.
  9. Also a few things here to try. https://www.lifewire.com/get-youtube-working-on-chrome-4178599 
  10. CCleaner Brower has a built-in password manager already, by the way. However, you should be able to install the LastPass extension via the Chrome Web Store here: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/lastpass-free-password-ma/hdokiejnpimakedhajhdlcegeplioahd Most but not all browser extensions should be able to be installed into CCleaner Browser via the Chrome Web Store, the same as in Google Chrome or other Chromium-based browsers. There are some exceptions (themes, for instance, are not currently supported), but in general it should be just that simple.
  11. Btw I can make export from chrome, and most other browsers and import that file into excel to make a printout, But there is no export function in Ccleaner that I have found to even export to chrome or Microsoft browsers. The other browsers don't show an import function to import from Ccleaner..
  12. Hello, I ran CCleaner for the very first time on my computer and now Chrome is completely unresponsive. I can't get into settings or tools or anything in Chrome. If I right click the Chrome shortcut and run the troubleshooter, it will work for that session only. Once closed, Chrome again becomes unresponsive. Anyone have this happen? Can I restore what that CCleaner session did?
  13. You can add the browser to CCleaner using one of the following methods: https://www.ccleaner.com/docs/ccleaner/advanced-usage/ccleaner-ini-files/how-to-clean-user-data-from-non-standard-mozilla-browsers CustomLocation1=CHROME|path_to_user_profile: https://community.ccleaner.com/search/?&q="CustomLocation1%3DCHROME" Example: CustomLocation1=CHROME|C:\Users\<your user name>\AppData\Local\Yandex\YandexBrowser\User Data\Default
  14. fyi. It appears to be a firefox issue, I switched to google chrome and had no problem with accessing site. we'll see what tomorrow brings, Thanks!!!!!
  15. @harry2021 I've moved your post to it's own thread because yours is about Firefox not Chrome, so the answer is probably different. (Plus it can get confusing giving different people answers about different browsers in the same thread). For others reading- This is related the 'Privacy' section of health check not removing all 'Trackers'. The article harry 2021 mentions is this one: https://community.ccleaner.com/topic/52668-tracking-files/?tab=comments#comment-300043 Could you give us more details of what you are seeing with the 'Trackers' in Health Check? ie, How
  16. I still suspect those crash handlers. With Chrome closed open Task Manager, right click on those two google crash hadlers in turn and 'End Task'. Then run CCleaner and see if it now removes those entries. If it does then it shows that it is indeed the crash handlers that are keeping those files open so that CCleaner can't clean them. Just in case it's something else though I'll ask again: Do you have any 'Live Tiles' on your Start menu? By that I mean any any tile that shows video, animation, or updates what it shows, eg. news, weather, etc. Let us know if 'End Task'
  17. Automatic cleaning of cookies by CCleaner v5.68.7820 (64Bit) not carried out. Windows 10 Pro 64bit v1903. CCleaner has the excellent function of deleting cookies, even automatically, even for Chrome, but cleaning does not seem to work. Or am I the one who is wrong/forget something. I use CCleaner with automatic start at user access from Planning Utility with the /AUTO parameter. ---- In task manager at the startup tab, there is a call to Google Chrome enabled: "C:\ Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\Chrome.exe" --type=service /prefetch: 8 by disabling this
  18. Starting in 2014 I began inputting exclusions into CCleaner since it was impossible for me to figure out why it was removing the saved data of extensions in Chromium/Chrome based browsers (Comodo Dragon, SRWare Iron, etc.,) and what eventually worked was excluding the "Local Extension Settings" folder in the browser(s) profile folder. Obviously that's completely different from logins being removed, but it could potentially be a clue that perhaps input an exclusion ('Options > Exclude') of the exact folder where those settings are saved as a possible remedy and then test the results.
  19. (Originally I noticed the zoom history was storing a list of sites I visited where the zoom level was changed and that's what I started noting in my report here; however, then I noticed per a bug ticket that the zoom history would get purged by using Chrome's "Clear browsing history" function and electing to include "Content settings". Yet CCleaner has no option to include purging of Chrome's content settings - so users are stuck having to use both Chrome's "Clear browsing history" with content data selected and then using CCleaner. A cleaner CCleaner usage would be to have CCleaner do the C
  20. Whilst you should do the above to satisfy yourself that CCleaner is not finding/removing that file: I'm pretty sure that what you are seeing is a long standing Windows bug and not CCleaner at all. Microsoft have promised a fix but maybe not until next month. See this press article from just before Christmas: https://www.express.co.uk/life-style/science-technology/1377755/Windows-10-bug-delete-saved-passwords-Google-Chrome I believe that you will find that even if you stop using CCleaner at all then the passwords will still keep getting deleted until Microsoft fix the
  21. I've never had this issue, closing the browser in general never affected my passwords, since October when I got 2 new Laptops with Windows 10, CCleaner has wiped passwords from both Microsoft Edge, and Google Chrome.
  22. You have not answered the questions I asked there, please do so to make sure we are talking about the same thing. I've now set my CCleaner to the same as in your screenshot above and CCleaner is not removing saved passwords from Edge Chrome for me. Have you tried the 4 steps I used above, ie closing and reopening Edge without running CCleaner? What happens if you do?
  23. Passwords is already turned off in that. And yes, using CCleaner clears my Saved Passwords, on both Edge and Chrome.
  24. I've just tried something, with interesting results. I opened Edge Chrome and logged into a website, saving the login/password when prompted by Edge. Looking in Settings>Profiles>Passwords I could see the saved password. I closed Edge and reopened it, nothing else. Looking in Settings>Profiles>Passwords the saved password had gone. So it was Edge itself that had removed the password, I hadn't even touched CCleaner. EDIT- I can do this repeatedly, the saved passwords dissappear everytime I close/reopen Edge. I don't know why it's doing that, I'l
  25. OK, let's be clear here about what is being wiped so that we are talking about the same thing. Are you meaning that you are always logged out and have to login to sites again next time you open the browser? If so then is it all sites or just certain ones? or Are you meaning that the actual saved passwords have been wiped from the browser and you have to type them in manualy each time you want to login to a site? ie. in Edge Chrome if you go to Settings>Profiles>Passwords can you see the saved passwords, then after closing Edge running CCleaner and reopening Edge can you s
