Users are reporting problems with the CCleaner software that appears to be partially broken after the installation of Windows 10 October 2018 Update
Many Windows users are reporting problems after the installation of Windows 10 October 2018 Update, a few days ago a Reddit user discovered the Task Manager tool was showing inaccurate CPU usage after the upgrade.
Other users discovered that some files on their machines were deleted after the Windows 10 October 2018 Update was installed.
Now users are reporting problems with the CCleaner software that appears to be partially broken after the installation of Windows 10 October 2018 Update (version 1809).
Some users claim that the certain features have stopped working after upgrading their Operating System. Some users reported that CCleaner failed to clean recent files and documents in File Explorer.
According to the member crizal of the official Piriform forum, CCleaner 5.47.6716 no longer cleans the following:
Recent files/documents in File Explorer
Windows Event Logs (CCleaner shows they’re cleaned but they’re still there)
Registry Cleaner keeps finding the same Application Paths Issue after every reboot (System32\DriverStore\FileRepository)
CCleaner must force close Edge browser prior to every cleaning, even if the browser has been closed (not that big a deal to me)
Piriform plan to fix the issue very soon.
“Thank you for reporting. We are aiming to fix this for the next release. Keep your eyes on the Beta Releases forum as we may publish it there first to get the fix out more quickly,” said a forum moderator.
