Ccleaner Pro doesn't clean browser

Recommended Posts

Ccleaner Professional doesn't clean any of my browsers after exit. I have it enabled under "Smart Cleaning".

Have you selected an 'action' for each browser as well as 'enabling' browser cleaning? If so which action?

The actions are:

  1. Do not monitor browser.
  2. Prompt me to clean on closing.
  3. Automatically clean on closing with notification.
  4. Automatically clean on closing without notification.

Do you have items ticked to clean for each particular browser? Automatic browser cleaning uses the settings you have ticked in Custom Clean.

Do you have your browser(s) synced?
CCleaner can only clean the history, cookies, etc. stored on your machine, anything that is synced will be restored from the cloud next time you open the browser.

You can check if it is cleaning either  by turning #3 on so you get a notification which will show if it's working when you close the browser - and/or after you have closed the browser open CCleaner and in custom clean doing a analyze to see if it finds anything  to do with the browser.

Is this with a particular browser?

It may be pre-loading and so when you think that you have closed it it is still running in the background - and CCleaner can't clean browsers (or any file) that is open.

Edge in particular can be a problem for that reason.

You can check in Task Manager to see if is still running in the background even though you have closed it's window.
