Ccleaner not clearing Google history [Resolved]

Ccleaner not clearing Google history.

Have been trying for a week and no matter what i do, parts of web history still remain and yet can be cleared if i do it manually through google browser ?

 

Can anyone help please ?

The fact that you can clear them only through the browser suggest that you have syncing enabled.

Have a look at this for why things may be coming back after cleaning with CCleaner, including if you are synced, and what you can do about it:

Many thanks for getting back to me and yes checked the sync and bin suggestions but unfortunately not that ?

Cc is keeping traces of websites i visit not all but just some. So, will clear say 100 and leave around 10 others in browser history.I've uninstalled ccleaner and downloaded latest version, checked updates etc and can't seem to solve this ?

Strange, so a few questions to try and work out what is happening.

Just to make sure first, we are talking about Google Chrome browser?

Where are you seeing this persistent history? (ie. in the browser, in CCleaner, or somewhere else?)
Is it always the same websites?
Are you willing/able to share a screenshot of what you are seeing?

Are you using Health Check or Custom Clean?
If it's Custom Clean then what do you have ticked/unticked for Chrome?

And for completeness: Which Windows version are you on? and which Antivirus do you use?

Yes strange indeed and looks like my own silly fault but not too sure how i actually achieved this.I had unticked a box under 'Google applications' "sessions" inserted tick in that box and all was well again.

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks for everyone's help with this.

Yes that would explain it.

CCleaner was clearing your history, but the tabs that were open when you closed the browser would be saved in 'Sessions' and put straight back into the history when you reopened the browser.
