My free CCleaner not clearing history etc...?

We need a bit more information.

Which browser are you trying to clean?
You are ticking/unticking boxes in Custom Clean, but are you using Health Check or Custom Clean to do the actual cleaning?

TBH though I suspect that your issue is that CCleaner is cleaning your files, but they are then being put straight back by browser syncing.

Have a read of this which explains why some files will come straight back after cleaning, (syncing is one reason) and what you can do to stop that from happening:

See this for how to turn Chrome syncing on and off:

However if you are syncing between more than one device, and want to keep syncing, then you will need to clean/clear the synced data using Chrome itself.
CCleaner cannot delete things from Googles sync servers they are protected, CCleaner can only clean your own device.
