CCleaner will not cleane Chrome's Internet cache

Recommended Posts

Even if I haven't run Google Chrome for a week I always get a pop-up while CCleaner is running telling me "Google Chrome needs to be closed to clean

the Internet Cache" ?

Are you using Chrome Print or Chrome Sync?

These (and a few other addons) keep a Chrome instance running even if you are not currently browsing.

Check the Processes tab of Task Manager and see if there are any Chrome.exe or plugincontainer instances (besure to have "show processes for all users" checked off on task Manager)

Thank you. I was having the same issue and brain farted when it came to having Chrome Print and Chrome Sync running. Thanks for the reminder.

 

CCleaner ended up removing another 800+ MB of junk files because of Google's internet cache that was being skipped for the last couple weeks.

Hi, I'm having the same issue, plus my laptop has lately been booting up, but none of the icons work and I have to do a restart. When I do, a dialog says do you want to force Chrome to close? It wasn't open. I checked processes as advised above and there are 10 chrome.exe processes running but no sync or print that I can find. Chrome seems corrupted, maybe I should just uninstall and reinstall.

Any suggestions? This seems to be happening every time I cold boot up now

 

thanks for help

400 MB per week is an awful lot of Adverts that Google was serving you :rolleyes:

usually caused by a badly written add-on. Kill all ten occurrences and chrome will clean.

This solved the problem for me: When you close Chrome, dont use the x at the top right of your tab. Use Chrome's menu. Scroll to 'exit' and close the program that way.  Otherwise chrome stays in memory.
