    How can I stop CCleaner from skipping cleaning files in Edge?


    Hi All,
    How can I stop CCleaner from skipping cleaning files in Edge?
    Is there a setting in Edge that's stopping CCleaner from cleaning the files?

    When in the main CCleaner window, press the "Cleaner" tab and then choose "Applications" from there, make sure that Edge Internet Cache, Internet History and Cookies are checked. Then press "Run Cleaner".

    They are all checked, but CCleaner still skips them.

    You need to close dllhost.exe prior to cleaning, try to use a bat file like this:

    @echo off
    taskkill /f /im dllhost.exe
    start "" "C:\Program Files\CCleaner\CCleaner64.exe" /AUTO

    Thanks, but I think that I've just found an easier way to sort it.
    I opened CCleaner, then opened "Options" then "Monitoring" then unticked the "Enable browser monitoring" box.
    Now it works!

    Actually I should thank you, I always wanted to make a script like that, but I was just too lazy to do it.

    I have the same issue.
    Responses I have seen so far only bypass the cleaning process not re-activate the cleaning process.

    My issues stems from having opted to skip cleaning for Edge but I now wish to re-activate the cleaning process that I opted to skip.

    Easiest way is open Ccleaner: click Options / Advanced / click Restore Default Settings / Yes / click Cleaner / Run Cleaner / check Do not show me this message again. / Okay. If another window pops up again: check Do not show me this message again. / Okay or Yes. And Run Cleaner a 2nd time to make sure.
