I frequently run CCLeaner to get rid of my junk and when I ran it today I happened to check my cookies after cleaning and there were still cookies present and this has never happened before.  I ran the cleaner again and they were still there.  I selected them all and clicked delete and they disappeared but when I clicked on another menu item and then rre-selected cookies again they returned with me not even opening my browser.  I then went to BRAVE and deleted all of my cookies and ran CCleaner
