If you check CCleaner to remove all cookies, it will do just that. There is no option in CCleaner to exclude your 'trusted' cookies.

For years I have used CCleaner to exclude

my trusted cookies and it has done so

I think you mis-understood my post

in IE8 browser the newest one they are not saved

when after using and running the Cleaner

Thanks for the screen shot, I understand what you mean now. Let's wait and see what the mods/admin have to say about this.

Sounds like a random error, have you tried uninstall/reinstall of CCleaner? We can go from there.

I just double checked, and using v2.17.853 under IE8 the cookies I choose are being saved correctly.

Some people have had issues with their Cookies to Keep still getting deleted. I don't know why it only happens to some people and not others.

 

The index.dat exclusion sounds like a nice idea. However; If still having issues you could also exclude both of these hidden folders in your user profile:

* Temporary Internet Files

* Cookies

 

...or just let IE8 handle all its own cleaning by unticking all of the IE cleaners in CCleaner.

The problem with that is that index.dat files can grow to a huge size as Windows never bothers to clean them out only re-create them at reboot if missing.

 

How do I know?

 

I have worked with Steven Burn the author Index.dat Suite to get it working on XP when XP came out:

I haven't tried it on Vista yet.

 

Steven is the author of hpHosts file as well.

My last and final question on this matter is...

will this be updated or fixed in the future to avoid

such confusion?
