CCleaner not working on MacOS Sierra 10.12


Recommended Posts

I am having the same problem after upgrade to Sierra.  Refer to attached screen shots.


(1) Before supposed cleaning: 309 MB to clean ("Analysis")

(2) After supposed cleaning: 0.1 mb cleaned ("Cleaning Complete")

(3) After supposed cleaning + run analysis again: still 309 MB to clean ("Analysis")


Appears CCleaner has stopped working after Mac OS X Sierra upgrade.


As an aside, this forum seems extra difficult to use on multiple levels.  (Maybe you do not want feedback when your software is broken?)

If you have the Pro version, selecting browser Monitoring from the Options menu allows you to select browsers to monitor.  When I changed my settings to Secure Mode 7-passes, the monitoring feature did clean the browser when you close the browser  At least there was nothing in the Analysis window after it cleaned.  Whether or not it actually does a secure 7-pass wipe is undetermined.  Either way, there is some updating to be done to work correctly in Sierra.
