Internet Explorer cleaning skipped

Recommended Posts

 Both Edge and IE are skipped when I run the cleaner.  I don't really care about Edge since I don't use it, but it should scanned anyway.

I use IE a bit and would like it scanned.  

What am I missing?

ie must be closed for that section to work.  Also some programs run ie as their renderer so be sure to exit those programs to (some examples of past issues were quicken and outlook)

IE will typically (at least in my case) have no issue being cleaned if you do the following:
1. Start Microsoft Edge.
2. Immediately close Microsoft Edge.
Side Note: Do not End Task Microsoft Edge from within Task Manager since doing that "may corrupt its databases."
3. Clean with CCleaner. It will spend a few seconds cleaning Internet Explorer however it should be able to successfully clean both it and Edge without any error text stating they're being skipped.
