Trackers Not Completely Cleaned and Rising


Recommended Posts

How do I get all the trackers removed?  When I first started using CCleaner a while back, all trackers were removed.  Now (it has built over time, so that maybe only 1 or 2 get removed) there 59 trackers still remaining that will not get removed when I click "make it better"..

Have a read of this about 'Trackers' - what they actually are, where they come from, why some of them will come back after cleaning, and what you can do about it:

Looking at your screenshots Health Check is finding some things to be cleaned but for some reason can't clean them.
(They may be still open or may be protected).

If you can do the same again but before clicking 'Make it better' click on 'Privacy'; the screen should change to tell you if they are cookies or temporary internet files.
(If you can post a screen shot of that screen so that we can see it too).

Custom Clean might tell us more, we can go into that later, but read that link above first to see if you can work out for yourself what may be causing it.

The 'Space', Temporary System files, is nothing to worry about, there will always be something found there.
(Windows remakes some of those as soon as they are cleaned, CCleaner itself puts a couple of files there each time you open it).

The 'Privacy' (trackers) is just showing Temporary Internet files to remove, it's not showing any cookies (which is interesting).

The Temporary Internet files are things like your browser history, browser cache(s), etc.
The fact that there are no cookies there is interesting though, you would expect some cookies to be there if you had been browsing.

My first thought is that the explanation for what you are seeing is that your browser is either pre-loading or it is synced, or both.
(Pre-loading makes the most sense for what you are seeing).
So it is remaking the caches again as soon as CCleaner removes them. (or not letting CCleane remove them in the first place because it is pre-loaded in the background).

What browser(s) are you using, and is it synced?

See that link above for how to stop browsers doing that - if you want to stop them doing that.
If you want your browser synced across devices (and/or preloaded) then you just have to accept that it will always remake those temporary internet files if/when CCleaner clears them, so Health Check will always see them everytime.

Is your Chrome synced?

Is it pre-loading? (With Chrome closed check in Task Manager to see if anything related to Chrome is running in the background).

If you go to Custom Clean instead of Health Check and do an Ananlze what does it say it is finding for Chrome? Does it say 'Skipped'?

Try that from Andavari.

It could well be those running crash handlers that are causing what you are seeing. They create reports about how Chrome is working and send them back to Google.
https://www.file.net/process/googlecrashhandler.exe.html
 

Quote

The genuine GoogleCrashHandler.exe file is a software component of Google Updater by .
GoogleCrashHandler.exe is an executable file that belongs to Google Updater, a package management system that downloads, installs, removes and automatically updates Google applications. This file sends crash reports back to Google for analysis. This is not a critical Windows component and should be removed if known to cause problems.

 

Going back to that link I gave at first (you did read it didn't you?) do you have any 'Live Tiles' on your Start menu?
