just installed IE8 the other day, and need some advice. i have CCleaner installed on my pc, and whenever i have finished on the internet, i run CCleaner. but i noticed that IE8, still has my browsing history, if i open a new tab and click on 're-open last browsing session'. why is CC not deleting this info? i know that IE8 has the option to 'delete browsing history on exit', but if i have this box checked, it takes about 20secs to close my browser window. is there a way round this, or is it something i just have to live with, unless i go back to IE7?

IE8 is still in Beta testing. There have been instances where IE 8 has caused machines to become unbootable. I highly recommend going back to IE 7 until IE 8 has officially been released.

As for the CC problem:
Open CC and make sure all of the boxes are checked under "Internet Explorer". Some of them include Temporary internet files, cookies and history.

Go to options and then advanced and uncheck the box labeled "Only delete temporary files older than 48 hours"

Now run CC again.
