is what ccleaner is supposed to clean (seen in filekey1 filekey2 and the the reg entries)

 

What seems to be occuring Google has stopped using %appdata% (translates as appdata\roaming) and started to use locallow

until such time as the Ccleaner Developers fix this you can add the following to your winapp2.ini (see link in my signature)

ADVICE FOR USING CCleaner'S REGISTRY INTEGRITY SECTION

DON'T JUST CLEAN EVERYTHING THAT'S CHECKED OFF.

Do your Registry Cleaning in small bits (at the very least Check-mark by Check-mark)

ALWAYS BACKUP THE ENTRY, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'LL BREAK IF YOU DON'T.
