Advanced Browser Cleaning

CCleaner requires a browser to be closed before it can be cleaned. Obviously with remote users, simply forcing a browser closed is not a valid option. To combat this, we have added Advanced Browser Cleaning so that Admins can schedule an open browser to be cleaned when it next closes.

 NOTE - You will need CCleaner Cloud Agent version 1.16 or above.

I am running a Manual Clean...

When running a manual clean you will be prompted with the option to select browsers which should be cleaned once they are closed. Those selected, these will show as Pending. Those not selected will show as Skipped.

  3. Using the check boxes on the left, select the browsers you wish to clean on close. Click OK.

To set at a computer level:

  1. Go to that computer within the console.
  2. Go to the Options tab.
  3. You will then see the option:


To set at a Profile level:
