How to reset the "don't ask again" setting?


Recommended Posts

Hello,

CCleaner free version (latest version) will not clean Edge's cache unless all instances of Edge (even the hidden ones) are terminated. It displays a dialog to that effect, and there's a checkbox "don't ask again", which I checked. I believed it would set CCleaner to terminate Edge automatically without asking, but instead it now simply ignores it. How do I reset this so it asks again?

Thanks!

Try unchecking Options>Advanced>'Hide warning messages'.

Edit - sorry that used to work but seems to have stopped? I'll try and find something else.
(Because I've turned mine off now and can't get it back either).

Worried about 'Tracking Files'? Worried about why some files come back after cleaning? See this link:

And that setting is already unchecked in mine ;)

In the past you sometimes had to toggle it on, run a clean or analyze, and then toggle it off again to reset the dialogue.

I'm not sure why its not working now, they must have changed something? (Maybe a bug?).

As hazelnut says you could try resetting to default, but make a note of all your changes, includes, and excludes first in case it resets those as well.

Resetting to default worked. Thanks!

How about 'Restore Default Settings'  under Options.. Advanced?

It worked. Fortunately I didn't have too many non-default settings… Thanks!
