Ccleaner not cleaning youtube cookies?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Not really a major problem, but the other day after cleaning cookies, tif, and history with CCleaner I noticed that recommendations based on my youtube viewing habits were still being shown, leading me to believe that it is not clearing youtube cookies.  I don't sign in on youtube so it's not connected with that.  I have set a few cookies to be saved but none of them are youtube.  If I clean with the standard IE internet options when I visit youtube the recommendations based on viewing habits are gone and the page is back to a default viewing.

Any idea what's going on?

Make sure it's not in Cookies to Keep!

Open CCleaner and go into:
1. Options > Cookies
2. If you see YouTube.com listed in 'Cookies to Keep' highlight it with your mouse and press the back arrow in CCleaner <- which will move it into 'Cookies on Computer' which will then allow CCleaner to delete them.

Hi,

There are no youtube cookies set to keep.  I actually removed all cookies to keep to see if it would clean the youtube recommendations and it still didn't work.

As I said, no big deal but it just seems weird that CCleaner can't seem to be able to do this where as the Microsoft Internet Options can.

This will be fixed in this month's release. Note that we can only clean viewing history for users who are not logged into a Google account.
