Not cleaning browser on close


Recommended Posts

I just updated to the newest windows update of 8.1.8895.  Now when I close the web, it does not clean at all.  Before installing latest release, it cleaned immediately after closing.  Any suggestions to remedy this issue would be appreciated.

what browser.  Sounds like the browser is set to "run in background"

 

ADVICE FOR USING CCleaner'S REGISTRY INTEGRITY SECTION

DON'T JUST CLEAN EVERYTHING THAT'S CHECKED OFF.

Do your Registry Cleaning in small bits (at the very least Check-mark by Check-mark)

ALWAYS BACKUP THE ENTRY, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'LL BREAK IF YOU DON'T.

Question split into it's own topic, was previously in a topic about CCleaner on Windows XP.

Worried about 'Tracking Files'? Worried about why some files come back after cleaning? See this link:

Let's see if we can pin this down, three questions to start.

When you say that it is not cleaning on closing Firefox then what is telling you that it isn't being cleaned?

Close Firefox and then look in Windows Task Manager, can you see anything Firefox related still running. (Or a Firefox add-on still running).

Could you also screenshot your Smart Cleaning settings?
eg. this one has Firefox set to clean on closing but not to notify you that it has cleaned it.

There was also an update to Firefox yesterday, v89.0.1, don't know if you've got that and if it may also have had an effect?
