ccleaner does not run from recycle bin dropdown

Recommended Posts

I think this just happened with the latest update to CCleaner 4.18.4844.

CCleaner does not even open when "Run CCleaner" is clicked on in Recycle bin menu.

OS Windows 8.1.1 64-bit PC

Something to try:

1. Open CCleaner.

2. Go into: Options -> Settings

3. Untick/disable the two items show within the blue box in the screenshot below (click the screenshot image to enlarge it):

4. Now tick/enable those two items and see if they work correctly now by right clicking the Recycle Bin and using both of them.

 

If they don't work:

1. Untick/disable them again.

2. Restart your computer.

3. Tick/enable them again and see if they work.

 

If none of the above works you may need to uninstall CCleaner, and then reinstall it.

Andavari, I must beg your forgiveness. It seems that CCleaner is running, BUT so fast that the Systray icon never appears but CCleaner has done its job when run from Recycle bin.
I have one question though:
Is there a way to save the "cookies to keep" List before uninstalling CCleaner?

Yes, set ccleaner to save settings in ini file,

Then exit ccleaner,

Then copy or move the ini file from the ccleaner folder

In this file are all your settings and cookies to keep, in plain text

The .ini file Nergal is referring to will be in the CCleaner folder and named:

ccleaner.ini
