  1. No guess, experience.

    When Windows 10 came out Edge was introduced and the way IE stored cookies and other temporary files changed, and is still changing monthly.

    I also use Firefox almost exclusively. And from experience (not a guess - CCleaner used to take ages looking at IE for me as well) know that what I have said above works.

    Of course if you are still using IE then you will see the delays if you want to clean it.

    PS. Firefox 69 is now storing a lot of stuff cached to your drive in a 'new' location, things change.

    That update doesn't automatically install though it's an optional update that is separated where the "Download and install now" text has to be clicked in order to get it. Pausing updates will mean you could miss other important updates such as those for Windows Defender if you use the built in antivirus, etc.

    It's not in that seperate 'optional' section any more.

    It is now included as a standard cumulative update and will download and install if/when you 'Check For Updates'.
    It's also expected to be an Automatic Update for patch Tuesday, which is tomorrow.
    Let's hope they've fixed/changed it by then.

    It isn't downloading here simply because I have set my connection to metered. And yes as Andavari noted you can see that's also blocking a Defender definition update.

  3. Look at your browser Options.

    There should be a section in there called something like 'Saved Logins' where you can see what usernames/passwords the browser is saving for each website.

    You should be able to edit or remove individual enties from there.
    You usually highlight and right click an individual entry to edit it, or highlight and click the 'Remove/delete' button to delete it altogether.

    Here's what it looks like in Firefox Options>Privacy & Security - clicking on 'Saved Logins' will give another screen showing all your saved usernames/passwords. But of course I'm not going to show you that screen from my computer as it has all my logins visible.


  4. I don't know about that Piriform one, but like I said a lot of things use IE temporary locations for their ephemeral files.

    It's just a convenience, why create your own new AppData temp folders when MS already provides one? And of course anything you put in there will be cleaned when you clear IE temp files, no need to go looking for other temp locations.

    As for the news stuff then it could be 'preloading' of webages/content (you should be able to turn that off in your browser). Alternatively If your browser has a default Front Page then delete the links from that and then those should not preload.

    Another way they may be getting there is if you have any Live Tiles on your start menu. Those will use IE/Edge to fetch the live content.

    I am using the free version. I get notified there is a newer version of CC Cleaner but when I click on it, all it does is take me to an upgrade page for the paid version. How do I upgrade the free version? 

    When that happens you can just click the "No Thanks" button; that will then take you to another screen where you can download the Free version.

    Having said that, a lot of regular users don't update like that and always go to the builds page that Hazelnut gave you the link for
