Internet Explorer

Recommended Posts

I no longer use Internet Explorer (does anyone?).  Do I need to continue checking it in Custom Clean?  I'm guessing I do, because it consistently appears in the cleaning results, but why is that?  Specifically, why do the results always include a Temporary Internet Files listing for IE?  Like I say, I haven't used it in at least a decade...

Yes parts of windows and many programs still use ie locations, so ccleaner cleaning them is recommended.

 

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.

Yes, even in Windows 11 that doesn't have IE, other things (including Edge) use the old IE storage locations.

Over the years they have become a convinent place for any application to put temporary files - so even with IE gone they still benefit from a clean out.

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

OK, I kinda thought that was the case.......but, I don't use Edge either, and I don't use Bing, I'm a Google Chrome type guy.  Do I still need all those other programs checked?
