CCleaner does not clear tracking cookies

  john bunyan 13:27 19 Dec 2009

Now using W7. I run CCleaner in default mode every day . After that (usually only visited PCA site) I run Superantispyware. Since W7 it find 6 or 7 Adaware tracking cookies in C/users/myname/AppData/Roamimg/Windows/cookies/Low/myname@admt etc where myname is actually my user name. the last bit is myname@ - then various .txt files. Is there a way to tell CCleaner to delete them ?

Ccleaner should remove all cookies that your browser collects. Have a look at the online Docs and see if you have either de-selected a tick box or added some cookies to your `Keep` list. click here

admt etc.belongs to windows messenger I think.

It should be is yours different or maybe the spelling is wrong.

You say "usually only visited PCA site". It's possible/probable that you are getting the cookies from this site.

I wonder if these are from applicatons such as iTunes or Raditracker. Next time I run SAS I will note the names in more detail. Still puzzled why Avira, did not find them.

Also how do they get there, and not the usual cookies place?

In settings its set as default only to delete cookies over 24 hours old

I don't think Ccleaner is working well with Win 7. Always get about 31,300 KB of 3,012 files cleaned, of those 55 files are cookies. That's after visiting this site only.
Try cleaning then rebooting. Log on to here, browse a bit then run Ccleaner again.
Could be my set-up of course.
