I use CCleaner Pro more or less regularly to clean out junk. No special tweaks except I set it to exempt certain cookies like the one that keeps me logged into BC <G>. If Chrome is open, CCleaner asks permission to close it. I give permission. Then it takes too long (forever) to close Chrome. Chrome has disappeared from the screen, but CCleaner seems to think it is still running and won't clean the Chrome cache, etc., no matter how long I wait. The same thing happens even if I close Chrome BEFORE launching CCleaner. CCleaner still thinks Chrome is open and tries repeatedly (forever) to close Chrome. It offers the choice of waitiing, or of forcing Chrome to close (even when Chrome is already closed).
If I restart the computer and run CCleaner right away, no such problem; but after I have run Chrome once, CCleaner seems forever after to think Chrome is running even when it is not (or at least not visibly, having been closed).
Is there some setting in Chrome I have to change to stop this from happening? Or what's going on here?
Except in very rare cases Chrome is the only browser I use - though Microsoft keeps trying to tell me that MS Edge is safer.
