Win 10 and CCleaner


Recommended Posts

#1-

I installed CCleaner  on my Win 10 laptop and I notice sometimes when I run Cleaner, I get a pop-up asking me if I want to close Edge. I didn't open Edge (which I believe it s the new Internet Explorer) and wonder why CC would be asking me if I want to close it?

 

Anyone know?

Can CCleaner be used with Win 10?

 

I've been using CC for years now and would not know what to do if I could not use it with my Win 10. Several posts have mentioned that Win 10 is removing CC from Win 10 computers.

I don't know what that is all about and whether MS has the right to do that.

 

Anyone know?

Yes, I would like to substantiate this frequent Observation as well!

 

Also, if "Don't ask me again" within that prompt is checked, CCleaner starts skipping the Internet-History cleaning for Edge & IE.

 

"Don't ask me again" should resort to automatic termination of any such stray instances of Edge & IE...rather than 'Skipping' the Cleaning process from there on!

 

Don know what really keeps such Stray instances open in the background even when these 'Delinquents' are left untouched!?

Can anyone reply to my Question #1 above?

And possibly offer a solution to Question #2? WHY is CC asking me if I want to close Edge (when I never opened it)?

Also Ccleaner can be used with Win 10, I have been using them for months together :)

Hello Hazelnut!

 

& what about the 'anomaly' getting evident with "Don't ask me again" prompt?

 

This should be able to Terminate any such stray instances/databases on its own rather than inflicting a SKIP against the thorough Cleaning process!

 

Any Inputs please?

Thank you.  When I do get that pop-up from CC while I begin running CC cleaner, is it okay to let CC close "Edge?" Or will that cause problems with my Win10 and/or Edge?

The cleaning part is fine for junk files, I however avoid cleaning the registry on Win10 systems.
