New trackers in browser when checking for them after browser closed and cleaned

Recommended Posts

I always check for and clean trackers when I finish using browser for the day. 

When I start PC next day, before opening browser, I check for trackers. 

Sometimes there are more than 100.  Where did they come from?

It's simply the way that computers work, see the following explanation.
In particular I would check if you have your browser synced. And more particulaly if you have your browser set to pre-load in the background when you start the computer.

'Live Tiles' on your start menu - weather, news, anything like that that shows video or updates - will also put cookies and temporary files on your computer.

Thanks for the linked response nukecad,

That was a satisfying answer. I'll re-assess my Start-up.  Sounds like you've been down this road many times.

That's a related group of questions that get asked a lot, so having the replies in one post we can point to is useful.

And it gets changed now and again to keep up with changes to Windows and browsers.
(I've just put the note about live tiles back in there, and added a note about synced browsers pre-loading).

Thanks in advance to the community for clarification and further adapation of the Health Check feature.

I would like to actually access the source of those trackers found on my PC to see from whom they are, where they came from. How can I do that?

So far there is only 1 sentence says X trackers found, that I can deleted, but that doesn't tell me anything.

Different categories of trackers/cookies should be distinguished.

I also find it quite misleading as other users, it's not Temporary Internet files as it stands under the category Cookies as nukecad shows in his screenshot:

Thanks for your feedback!
Kind regards!

In CCleaner go to Options... Settings and select Custom Clean near the top.

Close CCleaner and open it again and choose Custom Clean (should be highlighted)

Now do an Analyse and right-click on the item you want to know more about and select 'View all files'.
