CCleaner auto-cleaning on boot ! Not asked for!


Recommended Posts

First the details:
Windows 7 Ultimate SP1.  CCleaner Professional 5.55.7108 64-bit

I've just realised that CCleaner has started to AUTOMATICALLY CLEAN upon startup reboot after I had a blue-screen.
I did not realise this was a "feature" of auto-starting CCleaner, especially when, as far as I can tell, I've set the options to ALWAYS PROMPT before doing anything.

This is very annoying, because it prevents analysing what the heck happened just before a blue screen.

Is there any way to turn this auto-clean off but still have CCleaner start with Windows (to give me a tray-icon and do its monitoring)?

Uncheck run at startup, this is a badly worded setting, it means clean at startup

 

ADVICE FOR USING CCleaner'S REGISTRY INTEGRITY SECTION

DON'T JUST CLEAN EVERYTHING THAT'S CHECKED OFF.

Do your Registry Cleaning in small bits (at the very least Check-mark by Check-mark)

ALWAYS BACKUP THE ENTRY, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'LL BREAK IF YOU DON'T.
