Windows 10 October 2018 Update is turning out to be a nightmare for many as users have reported data loss after installing the new feature update. It appears that you may also experience compatibility issues with some third-party software after installing Windows 10 October 2018 Update.

Users are now reporting that CCleaner is partially broken after upgrading to Windows 10 October 2018 Update (version 1809). In a post on the official forum, the users revealed that the certain features have stopped working after installing Microsoft's latest feature update. For example, CCleaner fails to clean recent files and documents in File Explorer.

According to the original poster, the following features are not working in the latest version of CCleaner.

  1. Recent files/documents in File Explorer
  2. Reliability History
  3. Windows Event Logs (CCleaner shows they're cleaned but they're still there)
  4. Registry Cleaner keeps finding the same Application Paths Issue after every reboot (System32\DriverStore\FileRepository)
  5. CCleaner must force close Edge browser prior to every cleaning, even if the browser has been closed (not that big a deal to me)

CCleaner developer Piriform has confirmed that a fix is expected to arrive soon. If you're experiencing issues with CCleaner on Windows 10 October 2018 Update, you can join the beta channel and grab the bug fixing update when it comes out.

"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," a forum moderator explains.
