Hello
I would like to know how I can enable/disable the new intelligent cookie cleaning function after CCleaner install.
Right after installation you have to choice if you want to enable/disable this function, but I could not find this in the options to change this afterwards.

I also would like to know how exactly this function works. Sounds interesting, but I would like to customize which cookies should be kept.

Go to Options>cookies
Right Click on the area with cookies to delete
and choose intelligent scan
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.

I like that notion.. an option in CCleaner.ini perhaps such as

intelligentscan=*.google.com;*.prirform.com;

so you make "custom" intelligent scan lists.. :)

Basically it keeps certain cookies when you use CCleaner so that they don't affect your browsing experience later on.

I think cookies to keep is a manual entry for each file whereas the intelligent scan conserves the cookies in a manner that is more automatic by scanning for useful cookies and keeping them. The end result is the same but one is less time consuming and more autonomous than the other.

Go to Options>cookies
Right Click on the area with cookies to delete
and choose intelligent scan


For me on WinXP that only works on the 'Cookies to Keep' area.

Don't PM me for advice! I'll only ask you to read forum rule #15.
