CCleaner very slow

Recommended Posts

I have used CCleaner for years and like it very much.  However lately it has become extremely slow when cleaning Firefox cache and profiles, taking as long as 300 seconds to complete a clean.  What is being done or what can be done to remedy this?  I have only had this problem the last month or so.  I have already been trying another cleaner on my desktop because of this problem.

Make sure you haven't enabled any Secure Deletion method found in CCleaner at:
Options > Settings

Yes, normal delete checked.  Firefox cache and profiles seem to slow it down and only in the last month.  Someone changed something!

A slow down could be from a number of things:
* If you've added an un-trimmed Winapp2.ini file, either the community one from here, or elsewhere, which has apps in it that aren't installed on your system it will likely cause CCleaner to have a significant delay.
* In CCleaner's Applications (tab): Untick under the Firefox list: Compact Databases
* Secure File deletion, which you've already ruled out.
* Possibly some corruption in your Firefox profile.
