Just started getting this message when I use ccleaner.When I start running it it gets half way then I get this message. Google chrome needs to be closed to clean the internet cache Do you want ccleaner to lose google chrome yes/no if yes then it says the application is taking too long to close would you like to force it to close If no it leaves three items Google chrome internet cache Skipped Google Chrome History Skipped Google Chrome Cookies Skipped

Can someone advise sorry it is so long

You need to close the chrome browser before it will do the clean.

If Chrome is causing a problem the open task manager and there will be approx 4 chrome tasks running under processes. right click each one and select End Task.

then run CCleaner again.

Hi, in Chrome settings, click Advanced Settings and under System uncheck 'Continue running background apps'.
