  1. CCleaner needs to close microsoft edge and internet explorer?


    I ran CCleaner today (Great program by the way!), like I do every couple weeks, and it said that edge and internet explorer needed to close to finish. Thing is, I use neither. So Do they auto run in the background? How can I keep them from starting?

    :)

    Internet Explorer & MS Edge turning on(and staying on) upon startup by themselves.

    Every time I use my "C Cleaner", when I hit "Run Cleaner" this message pops up. " Microsoft Edge Cache Database and Internet Explorer needs to be closed to clean Internet cache. Do you want CCleaner to close Microsoft Edge Cache Database and Internet Explorer?".
    Does anyone happen to know why they do this, and possibly, how do I stop them from doing this? Any,and all, help would be awesome! Thank You!

    If Microsoft Edge is the new browser, how come when I run my CCleaner program there are always files left over from Internet Explorer that don't get "cleaned" or removed in the temporary internet folder? Or is some of Internet Explorer still used by Microsoft
    Edge. For that matter some of the files in Microsoft Edge are skipped by CCleaner, I'm wondering why. Does Edge run in the background because of its link with Cortana? I'm just curious as to why some files are always left over by CCleaner. In Windows 7 when
    I ran CCleaner nothing was left over. The temporary internet folder was completely emptied, not so in Windows 10. If I check when deleting the browsing history there are no files in the temporary internet folder. But CCleaner always has some left. I'm just
    not sure why, and I like to know if its an issue or that's just the way it works.

    CCleaner needs to close microsoft edge and internet explorer?

    never receive this message unless they are open, the browsers. Even shutting off Live Tile in start menu for Edge i do not think is the cause. Possible some other program is using these browsers, maybe due to Ccleaners monitoring feature found in settings.Try to disable it and see.

  6. ccleaner will close browsers for you. possibly you have live tiles running for edge and ie. turn them off.

    I have gotten a message that Edge needs to close so CCleaner can clean it's temp files. Check the box and from then on it will do that automatically. Edge is used with Cortana, so I think that CCleaner wants the user to be aware if there is a momentary disruption.

    I have received that message too when the browser(s) are open. I think it may have to do with the difficulty deleting files that are in use.

  9. I do not use Cortana, Store, Start, Edge, live titles and still get that message.
    It is probably related to inetcache or something like that used by Windows.

    EDIT: I have noticed, that when I clicked to close Edge, dllhost.exe process has been shut down.
    When the process is not running, CCleaner does not ask anything and just performs the cleanup.

    ccleaner requires that the browsers that it supports should be closed in order to be able to clean its files. This is to do with file permissions.

    Strange is to how some have this issue like thread starter and some do not, wondering exactly why this is. As some say i only have this issue if browsers are open, which makes sense if know or see it is open. Box that comes up can be set to never remind you again, but of course it will close the browser without warning. Of course for me Firefox is open on screen cap. i know.
    Flaw for some or some other program has the browser open in back round, not sure to say it might be a CCleaner issue for some, recently a new version shows support for browsers in each . CCleaner - Version History

  12. How many gazillion transistors, resistors, capacitors, ICs and connections does a program path have? It only takes a 1 or 0 to be missing somewhere for a hickup to occur. Remove and reinstall CCleaner and see if that fixes it. Just sayin.

    CCleaner does the same thing to me, has ever since I upgraded to win10. Reinstalled CCleaner, makes no difference. I just gave up trying to figure out why. Only browser it affects is my IE11. I don't use edge, or Cortana, never have. Turned off. Does not brother Chrome at all. Don't use firefox.

    It must be some dll loaded up in memory or something like that. Not the main executable from the aforementioned browser(s). I also got a warning about closing IE and Edge and I do not use them.
