how to make CCleaner delete most used web pages & bookmark folders

Recommended Posts

Hi.

 

I am using chrome. It remembers most used web pages and show them to me when I opened a new blank tab. And also when I want to bookmark a web site, it remembers most used bookmark folders. Can CCleaner delete those? I attached two screen shots to make my self clear.

 

Thank you.

Have you ran CC yet?

What version of CC and Chrome do you have?

 

In CC, on the Applications tab in the Google Chrome section, what is ticked?

I am using CCleaner Free v4.14.4707. I always use this program but it doesn't clean those. Internet Cache, Internet History, Cookies, Download History, Last Download Location, Saved Passwords, Compact Databases are ticked. My Chrome version is 35.0.1916.114 m

so to confirm, you don't have ticked Session or Saved Form Information?

have you gone into Chrome, Settings, Show Advanced Settings, and unticked Continue running background apps?

Are you logged in to the Chrome browser with your Google account? If so, log out, as CCleaner will be unable to delete this information (it's held on Google's servers and restored to your browser upon opening)

Yes I am looged in to the Chrome with my google account. I even loged out but again ccleaner couldn't delete those. If I delete chrome user (which i only have one) then everything is deleted. But this is not the solution that I want. I do not want to lose other things. I just want to delete most used bookmark folder list and most visited sites boxes in the new blank tab.

I tried again. This time loggin out works for deleting most used web pages. CCleaner was able to delete those informations. I think in my first try chrome was not closed entirly. I mean this time I checked the tesk bar and see chrome.exe was there. So I kill the process and then run the ccleaner again and it was ok. I think this is a trade-off. Maybe chrome itself should give us an option to reset those informations. But either way most used bookmark folders could not be deleted. I cannot get rid off them.

I have been helping (rather, trying to help) someone with a similar problem trying to delete Chrome history with CCleaner not working. If you don't mind being a Guinea Pig, please see if this works.
 

Start Chrome,

Click on the "Customize and control Google Chrome" button (the 3 line button at the top-right),

Click on "Settings",

Click on "Show advanced settings...",

Scroll down and near the bottom under "System", uncheck "Continue running background apps when Google Chrome is closed",

Exit Chrome.

 
Now see if CCleaner cleans all of Chrome's crap. And please, post back with the results.

I think one of the problems is solved but other one is not.

 

1) As mta and Digerati said  "Continue running background apps when Google Chrome is closed" must be unchecked. But sometimes even you exit chrome "chrome.exe" still resides in background. If so, manually kill the process in windows task manager.

 

2) Make sure in CCleaner, on the Applications tab in the Google Chrome section everything is checked (maybe except session because if you chek this, then, next time you start chrome, it cannot show you the pages leaved open before exiting chrome, i.e. next time chrome only shows your homepage)

 

3) Run CCleaner and most visited web sites boxes in new tab window will be cleared.

 

I think this is the solution for the first problem. Thank you everybody for your help. 

But for the second problem, that is, clearing the most used bookmark folders list, I think we have no solution because chrome sync everytime this data from google servers. If you stop sync then your favorites will only be available for that computer. So this isn't a solution for me.
