  1. DEAR SpaghettiMaximus, I FOUND THE ANSWER. I know your post was back in May, but a search for "CC hangs" comes up with this thread CURRENTLY #4 in google. FIRST of all, I'm a big fan of CCleaner. Thanks for making a difference in this world! SECOND, help for everyone who's searching for a solution to your issue, the EXACT same issue I faced for the past few days. THE SOLUTION IS EASY. But first, a brief explanation: YES, CC seems to hang at "Internet Explorer", but that's only because that's one of the very first areas that's cleaned by CCleaner. I tried all different solutions, and the only one I found actually immediately solved my problem was ADDING CCleaner folder as an EXCEPTION to your Windows Security Essentials. 'Nuf talk! The SOLUTION is simple. JUST DO THIS: 1. Open Windows Security Essentials 2. Go to Settings tab 3. Go down to "Excluded files & locations" 4. Then add the CCleaner folder as an excluded location by hitting "BROWSE" button, then browse to (usually): C:\Program Files:\CCleaner ....and hit "ADD". It'll then show up in the lower pane. That's it. Now Windows Security Essentials won't stop CCleaner every time it's trying to clean your computer and make your life simpler! (P.S. This same exclusion "trick" is really helpful for OTHER folders for programs that you know & trust where you don't want constant interference). Hope this helps....and wow...just in time for Christmas! Did my good deed, lol. Good luck everyone.
  2. CCleaner hangs when cleaning IE history

    Dear fastcolts, I FOUND THE ANSWER. I know your post was 2009, but a search for "CC hangs" comes up with this thread FIRST in google. FIRST of all, I'm a big fan of CCleaner.

This might also explain why you think it happened after your Microsoft Update (and then resolved after you restored to before that point) ...perhaps there were new definitions that downloaded to Microsoft Security Essentials...but that's less important for now. Adding entire folders (or, for a more targeted approach, just the processes) on programs that you know & trust to Windows Security Essentials allows these types of programs to do their thing. Hope this helps....and wow...just in time for Christmas! Did my good deed, lol. Good luck everyone.
