Microsoft edge
« on: August 12, 2019, 05:32:47 AM »
I have the wonderful Windows 10 on my computer now.
I run two cleanup programs - Wise Disk & Ccleaner.
I have Cortana & Microsoft Edge disabled. When I run
Ccleaner it takes off somewhere from 4000 to 5000 files.
How is this possible if I have it disabled?

Jack,

See if you have this file on your Win10.

C:\Windows\System32\cleanmgr.exe

If so, run it daily and it will keep cleaning up any mess.

C:\Windows\System32\cleanmgr.exe

It's on Win7-64, too, but it hangs, apparently. Ten minutes ago it started "analysing memory dumps". Maybe it takes hours, we'll see :cool:

Jack,

Run it on its auto settings and it works OK. You can add extras but it gets most things most of the time.

All that I am doing and Ccleaner is still finding over
5,000 items by Microsoft Edge.

Wise Cleaner, Ccleaner, Cleanmgr & Microsoft Edge disabled
& Microsoft Edge still is doing it's invasive thing!!!!!!

Jack,

Just stop using Edge, that is the solution. Statistics wise its a dead one, most go for a Google based browser where Edge is a flop.

Hi Hutch,
I never use M Edge.  I think I have it disabled.
Every time I run Ccleaner Microsoft Edge is shown
as gobbling up 5000 or so K.
I am using google chrome as my browser.
Can't send a sample from Ccleaner as it is a .jpg file.

You can always think off CCleaner using fake data in order to show up as 'useful'.

I found an article on "Trustedinstaller" as follows:
https://helpdeskgeek.com/windows-7-how-to-delete-files-protected
-by-trustedinstaller

Working in Windows 10 - Found 4 files listed in Windows/system32
as follows -- Microsoftedgebchostel.exe, Microsoftedgecp.exe,
Microsoftedgedevtools.exe, Microsoftedgesh.exe..
I was able using this tool to alter the permissions to let me
alter the name of the above 4 items. I took off 1 letter before
the ".exe" for each file.
I then ran Ccleaner and it showed that Microsoftedge was still
functioning. According to what I did in Windows/system32 it should
be totally disabled....
