CCleaner V5.54.7088 64 Bit DOESN'T Clean Chrome

Recommended Posts


Just installed the latest release of CCleaner and it DOESN'T clear anything out of Goggle Chrome (despite the fact that I have all the boxes checked off).

Instead (after running CCleaner Professional) I'm simply told that everything Google Chrome has been "skipped", and I now have to clear out my browser "manually".

What gives?

The fact it says 'Skipped' tells you that Chrome, or one of it's components, is still active in the background.

CCleaner cannot clean applications that are still active, files that are open are protected from deletion by Windows itself.

Try fix #2 here:

If you also have your Chrome synced then anything you clear will be resynced from the cloud and just reappear again, in that case you also need fix #1 from the above.

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