Does CCleaner not play well with MS Edge?

Recommended Posts

I have used CCleaner for years, mostly with IE, and had few issues.  A few weeks ago, I finally switched browers from IE to Edge and have been having problems with CCleaner doing a little too complete job of cleaning.  In addition to wiping some protected cookies, it has been deleting my favorites list.  Since I just switched browsers and IE is still installed this is not such a huge deal because I can just import my old bookmarks again, but it will be problematic soon.

 

I had a similar problem with CCleaner erasing things it shouldn't have when upgrading from 5.22 to 5.23 and was advised to roll back to 5.22 (which I did).  I note that the upgrades to 5.24 are silent on any cure for these issues.  Is it perhaps peculiar to certain versions of Windows?  I am on Win 10 Pro with a 64 bit architecture and mostly running just vanilla MS applications so there should be nothing too strange other than the OS.

Windows 10/IE/Edge has changed the way it's stores the browser cache now. It's not just CCleaner, it's all the third apps. We (I mean they) are looking into the matter to see what can be done about it.
