    CCleaner only scanning the administrator account.


    I have a separate standard user account that I mainly operate from and I've noticed that CCleaner only scans the administrator account. Can I enable CCleaner to scan for things it normally would for other user accounts without having to manually add folders to scan etc?

    I believe you have to pay for that functionality. Otherwise run it from the other account.

    I have tried running it from both the Admin and the Standard User account but it still only scans the Admin account.

    I'm not at the computer at the moment. But you have to configure CCleaner not to ask for UAC. Look in settings then restart CCleaner.

    I've got it, I had been opening CCleaner with admin rights. If I just open CCleaner from the standard user account (not run as administrator) it now scans the correct user. All sorted by the looks...

    You don't need to run it with administrator rights.
