  1. Thanks Nergal, I have solved this problem. There is an option under Google Chrome called "Compact Databases". It is greyed out and unchecked by default. Checking this option removes all residual data in the cookie/history files. Good job developers!!!!
  2. Thanks for responding Nergal. I am positive that all instances of the browser is closed when cleaning. I like that the browser does not show any cookies or history after a ccleaner run. However leaving residual data in the cookie/history files could be a problem. The files will continue to grow in size and never get properly cleaned. With a browser clean the data is completely removed and the files are shrunk as they should be. Do you know anyone one the dev team that can look into this? Thanks for your support...
  3. Nergal, Thanks for clearing things up. I hoping you can clear something else up for me. When I run a clean with ccleaner, I notice that residuals of cookie data and history data remain in the cookies/history files. Just opening them up in wordpad or a hex editor shows this. When I clean using chromium "Clear browsing data" the residuals do not remain. The interesting thing is that if I examine my history or cookie data from within Chromium after running ccleaner, it shows no history or cookie data. Yet residuals clearly still exist in the files. Can you shed and light on this? Thanks for your support...
  4. I have solved my problem. Cookies to keep does work for Chromium. My problem was that I had winapp2.ini file that contained entries for Chromium. I added these entries many versions ago when Chromium cleaning was not supported. Now it appears that Chromium cleaning is supported. Chromium is treated as Google Chrome so an analyze will display results for Chrome even though it is really Chromium data. Makes sense since chromium is the same app as chrome without the google branding. Anyway the entries in winapp2.ini were wiping out the entire cookies file. Working great now for keeping/deleting cookies. Sorry we pissed back and forth Alan_B, no heart feelings I hope...
  5. Alan_B, Your links point to Chrome releases not Chromium. This discussion of which version I am using is pointless. CCleaner either supports the keep cookies function for Chromium or it does not. I suspect it does not since cookies are stored in a single file. Keeping select ones would require parsing the file. Anyway thanks for your input...
  6. I am using XP SP3 with Chromium 14.0.797.0. Not sure why you would call Chromium a beta product. Chromium is the same as Chrome without Google branding. Chromium has the same cookies file that Chrome uses. Does Cookies to keep work for Chrome?
  7. Hi Everyone, I am curious if cookies to keep is supported for Chromium? Cookies show up in the list and I move them over to keep but they get deleted anyway. In fact the entire cookies file is deleted. Can anyone shed some light on this? Thanks...
  8. Just wondering if anyone from the development team has read this post? Thanks.

  10. Hi Nergal, Thanks for your reply. This is not the case. I manually delete the updates from the ie7updates folder all the time with no effect on the system. I still receive new ie7 updates via Windows Update or Automatic update with no problems. The only reason to keep the updates is if you want to uninstall them. Windows uses the registry to determine what updates have been applied, not the folder.
  11. Hi support, I was wondering if you could add cleaning of the ie7updates folder located in the Windows folder. I think that when a user checks the option to clean Hotfix Uninstallers, the ie7updates folder should be cleaned as well. Thanks for your support.
  12. Hi Everyone, I am a big fan of CCleaner and really appreciate the program. I was wondering if the developers would consider changing the installer to give the user the option to install the program for all users? Currently the installer will install the start menu shortcuts on the start menu of the user account installing the program. Since the program must be run by each user account on the machine, it makes sense to install the start menu shortcuts on the all users start menu. This will ensure that all user accounts have access to the program via the start menu. Each time I upgrade the product I must move the shortcuts to the all users start menu. I hope a change will be considered. Thanks for the support...
  13. Hi YoKenny, Thanks for your reply. The thread you are referencing has absolutely nothing to do with my request. That thread is dealing with Active Directory and Group policy and cleaning user profiles. I have no problem cleaning user profiles on my client machines. I am merely suggesting that the installer give the option to install the program for all users. All this means is that the start menu shortcuts will be placed in the all users start menu folder instead of the start menu folder of the account that installs the program. Most programs will automatically install their shortcuts on the all users start menu by default. The smart installers give the user the option. Thanks again for your reply.
