Every time I open any website I am asked to accept cookies

Most websites do it, in Europe it is a legal requirement needed to comply with the GDPR data protection laws and many websites just implement it worldwide.

It's one of those ideas that at the time seems like a good idea for peoples privacy, and it does make website owners think about privacy, but for the computer user it ends up just being annoying.

Some websites will ask everytime that you visit regardless of what you said last time.
Others do keep your acceptance in a cookie, so if you clear that cookie they will ask again next time you visit.
If you don't accept then of course they will always ask again next time.

You could tell both your browser and CCleaner not to clear those cookies, once you have identified just which cookies they are, but there is an easier way.

The easiest way to stop being annoyed by them is to use a browser extension, or Ad blocker filter.
Once installed you won't be bothered by cookie permissions pop-ups much if at all.
 You might still very briefly see the permission request but the extension quickly either hides it or  'accepts' for you.
They can't catch every single one, so you may still have to accept one occasionally, but the good ones do catch most of them.

I've used this one in Firefox for a number of years, (It's now owned by Gen Digital the group that CCleaner is part of): https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/addon/i-dont-care-about-cookies/

It is available as an extension for Firefox, Chrome, Edge, Opera, and Pale Moon - and as a filter list for AdBlock, Adblock Plus, and uBlock Origin for use in other browsers: https://www.i-dont-care-about-cookies.eu/

Other extensions/filters are available that do much the same thing.
