Suggestion for ccleaner

Recommended Posts

maybe this has been discussed before but I couldn't find it.   

Anyways, I've been using ccleaner for a long time and like it.  But I usually run it 2,3,4 times in a row and it almost always finds more stuff the 2nd running even the 3rd running of the program,  I wish there was a button that I could check and the program would run the number of times I have checked automatically.   That way I don't have to restart it each time.

It always find stuff in a second or third running because Windows automatically recreates some files immediately after you have deleted them.

If you do this multiple times then Windows will pause recreating them while it tries to work out what keeps deleting them.
So it looks like CCleaner has finally got rid of them, but they'll be back again minutes later.

If you don't want to constantly keep seeing these files then make them an 'Exclude' in CCleaner, so that it will ignore them.
eg. One of them is "C:\Users\{your username}\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCookies\deprecated.cookie".
If you delete that it just comes back again, so exclude it and CC will then ignore it.
(On my machine I also have 3 Adobe font files excluded, again if not excluded CC deletes them and Adobe just puts them back again).

Alternatively these may be files that are being synced back to your machine from the cloud, usually by your browser.
To stop those coming back you have to delete them from the cloud, or turn off syncing.

See 'Secondly' in this post for more about what these files are that Windows automatically recreates:
