It is clear that Ccleaner is not going through its best moments, nowadays, and everything comes from its purchase by Avast and changes that have been included, such as data collection. However, Ccleaner was the best cleaning and optimization tool for Windows and is still a popular software. Now, this application must face a new problem, as it does not work correctly in the new Windows 10 October 2018 Update.
On Tuesday night, Windows 10 October 2018 Update is reaching all users. This new version of Windows comes with many changes and many improvements both visually and under the hood. Although so far no compatibility problems with common programs have been detected after upgrading to this version, some users complain that Ccleaner is not working correctly under Windows 10 October 2018 Update.
Ccleaner can not clean files in the new version of Windows 10
Users who still use this application to clean and optimize Windows have started complaining that, after upgrading to Windows 10 October 2018 Update, Ccleaner has stopped working correctly.
When users try to perform cleanup, the program is unable to remove specific content, such as recent files, system events or registry errors, among other items. Also, the user is prompted to close Edge, even if Edge is already closed.
These problems can be seen on any computer running Windows 10 October 2018 Update and the latest patches and the latest version of Ccleaner. Luckily, the company has already found the problem and claims to be working to fix it as soon as possible with a new update.
Windows 10 Storage Sense should make you forget Ccleaner
It is true that Ccleaner has been, in the past, one of the best applications to keep computers clean of junk files or to optimize PCs’ performance in a few clicks. However, for some time now this tool is no longer what it used to be, and in addition to not being as effective as it has been once, it started collecting data on its users.
For a year now, Windows 10 has had its own cleaning tool, the so-called Storage Sense. This tool, included by default in Windows 10, in the Configuration menu, takes charge of cleaning the hard disk of temporary and unnecessary files to have your equipment always ready without having to depend on other applications. It is also useful for optimizing your PC, so, since Ccleaner is not working correctly in the new Windows 10 October 2018 Update, you have one more reason to ditch Ccleaner.
