    OK. I have now disabled third-party cookies in Firefox. Thanks, I'll see if that helps.

    I am also experimenting with not leaving my Outlook.com email open all the time while I'm working on the computer. That may help. I'm not sure yet. I always left it and, often Yahoo mail, open all day as i was using my old W7 computer with no problems. There is a hole in the system allowing lots of trackers in...or CCleaner is inflating the numbers. Thanks again.

    Please post a screenshot of Ccleaner's file list so we know what you are talking about.

    Then maybe run AdwCleaner:

    I don't see anywhere specifically listing tracking cookies.

    Okay - now I see that if you use Summary clean it just states "Trackers" without giving any actual detail.

    So change to "File List" in options and then you might figure out what's being cleaned and why and maybe where from.

    I changed to file lists but only received cookie list. Small list not 3k of trackers.

    Also turning off 3rd party cookies did not help

    So that's the list of what was removed since the last clean.

    If you switch back to summary list and run a clean and it still shows thousands then maybe it's a running total?

    Only I don't see that on my machine. I just see what was removed since last time.

    Run it again and instead of file list put a dot in "Advanced Report" and see what is shown.

    Just to comment that I've never seen Ccleaner report a high number of cookies on my machine.

    I have had to fully remove Ccleaner and then reboot and then reinstall it on more than one occasion due to rare bugs.

    Also confirm results by running this instead next time and see if it reports the same:

    Download HDCleaner - MajorGeeks

    Just run the browser cleanup and system cleanup on default settings. Do not use registry cleanup.

    Will do ! Could some sites be affected (display, log on, etc) ?
    You could try this extension, whitelist cookies you want to save and set it to remove the rest.
