MS Edge pre-launching, loading (W10 Home)

Recommended Posts

Hello to all,

I am running CCleaner Professional (5.56.7144) in Windows 10 Home (1809, 17763.437), and CCleaner is saying I have to disable Edge pre-launching and pre-loading (yes, I would very much like to do that, since I don't use Edge). For help CCleaner loads the following webpage:

https://www.ccleaner.com/docs/ccleaner/troubleshooting/how-to-disable-pre-launching-and-pre-loading-so-ccleaner-can-fully-clean-edge

where it shows how to do the aforementioned pre-launching and -loading in the Registry (which I am familiair with). Other webpages show the same "tip" on how to do this.

However, there are no Registry keys

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\MicrosoftEdge\Main

and

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\MicrosoftEdge\TabPreloader.

Does anyone knows how to solve this thing?

Oh, and, dear people of CCleaner,

I have been using CCleaner Free for a long, long time and always found it a good program. So, as a way to support you, I bought the Professional version.

But I kind of missed the fact that it is a "subscription-based" and "one-year" buy, and I am not content about this. Call me old-fashioned, but I do not want to buy every year to have a program run. I want to buy for it and be able to run it as long as possible. So, next year I will not "renew" this "subscription" of CCleaner Professional.

I just wanted to add this.

That page is giving some wrong information, and it's been complained about before yet it's still in that confusing state.

To get correct information and even instructions for a working .REG file you can make have a look at this topic on the forum:
