Google Chrome.


Recommended Posts

I have recently switched from Firefox to Google Chrome as a web browser.

When I run CCleaner it is taking at least five times as long to clean Chrome, than it did to clean Firefox.

I am doing nothing different in the browsers.

 

Is this common ?

Are you certain that all instance of chrome are closed? Are you running chrome sync or chrome print?

Exit Chrome

Open task manager

go to the processes tab

look for chrome.exe and/or plugincontainer.exe

kill all instances of it

 

If I remember correctly chrome is more likly to collect tracking and temp files than firefox.

I only have Internet Explorer installed, but I don't use it at all (was advised not to uninstall it, as it might affect the operation of Windows).

 

All instances of Chrome are definitely closed, I did the Task Manager check as suggested.

Rote Answer: Doesn't matter if you don't use internet explorer, Windows and many programs are still using it, so don't if you have it checked off you're leaving stuff junk on your computer. That said, it does not have to do with this answers.

 

Please update your ccleaner to the newest version and see if the issue remains

I have downloaded and installed the latest version.

It is improved somewhat, the cleaning process zooms to 43% in about 3 seconds, then stays there for 98 seconds , the reading is "Google Chrome Internet cache.

 

Not quite as fast as pre Chrome, but fast enough.

 

Thank you for the advice.
