CC Cleaner

  tonyx1302 17:47 13 Jan 2005

After running Crap Cleaner in the Windows section, it tells me that I have 8 old sites that need deleting. After clicking on 'Run Cleaner' it then tells me that it has removed sites but they still show in the screen.
I have run A2, CleanUp etc after CC hoping this will clear them but they still remain even after rebooting.
How do I delete them please.


PS I'm on XP

"it tells me that I have 8 old sites that need deleting".

What do you mean - '8 old sites'? What sites?

Did you remember to tick the boxes or right click - select all then Fix.

If they are showing in the "Issues" section, tick the boxes then fix Issues. After fixing the Issues you may cause some more issues in doing so and you will need to run it again to fix those.

Cook2 and Djohn

Breitling didn't say that he/she used 'Scan for Issues'.

Shouldn't we wait for a response to the first question before blinding him/her with science?

I suppose that puts me in my place then! :o(

So sorry for the delay in coming back to everyone who answered. I had to unexpectedly go out last night and this is the first chance I have had to get back on my pc.

After running 'Run Cleaner' in the Windows part of the prog. it gave me a list of all that I could delete,( about sixty deletes ). After deleting the list it showed 8 web sites that I didn't know or hadn't visited still remained although it showed that they had been 'removed' ! ( are you still with me? ).

Now this morning after running CC again, all is well and they have been cleared so it appears it has corrected it self.

It is a brilliant little prog. that I found via this forum a long time ago, but have only recently updated to v1.16.084 without deleting previous CC, so could that have caused the problem?

Thanks everyone for your responses and my apologise once again for the delay in replying to all the kind folk out there. Your interest and help is always appreciated, even if it is not always acknowledged.


P.S I will 'green tick 'this shortly in case any one has any further comments

No, installing the latest version of CCleaner over a previous version is perfectly OK. It says as much at the CCleaner website.

When you choose 'Run Cleaner' under the Windows and Applications tabs, whatever comes up is automatically removed/deleted by CCleaner. It is only under Issues that you are given the option to delete or not.

It is perfectly safe to delete all that it finds. If you are unsure, you have the option to back up your registry before deleting anything, though.

For what it's worth, I've been using CCleaner for 7 or 8 months now on a weekly basis. I've NEVER backed up my registry and never experienced any probs with CCleaner.
