CCleaner not working on MacOS Sierra 10.12

Recommended Posts

hi, i'm using ccleaner pro 1.14.451, running mac os x 10.12 and cleaner not functioning as before update to sierra. analysis seems to work fine but the actual cleaning only cleans a tiny amount of the items recognized in the analysis. no clue what's up but not working for me.

I am having the same problem after upgrade to Sierra.  Refer to attached screen shots.

 

(1) Before supposed cleaning: 309 MB to clean ("Analysis")

(2) After supposed cleaning: 0.1 mb cleaned ("Cleaning Complete")

(3) After supposed cleaning + run analysis again: still 309 MB to clean ("Analysis")

 

Appears CCleaner has stopped working after Mac OS X Sierra upgrade.

 

As an aside, this forum seems extra difficult to use on multiple levels.  (Maybe you do not want feedback when your software is broken?)

The problem occurs in Sierra when choosing any of the Security Options, so 1-pass or more does not work.  I was able to get it to work if I select Normal Mode (no security passes).

If you have the Pro version, selecting browser Monitoring from the Options menu allows you to select browsers to monitor.  When I changed my settings to Secure Mode 7-passes, the monitoring feature did clean the browser when you close the browser  At least there was nothing in the Analysis window after it cleaned.  Whether or not it actually does a secure 7-pass wipe is undetermined.  Either way, there is some updating to be done to work correctly in Sierra.
