CCleaner Skips Microsoft Edge - Won't Clean Edge

Question: CCleaner Skips Microsoft Edge - Won't Clean Edge

CCleaner is a great clean-up tool which I've used successfully for many years, but it will not clean Microsoft Edge. The line simply says "Microsoft Edge skipped". I've uninstalled CCleaner & re-installed it, but same problem. Can anyone help

Preferred Solution: CCleaner Skips Microsoft Edge - Won't Clean Edge

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I ran CCleaner today (Great program by the way!), like I do every couple weeks, and it said that edge and internet explorer needed to close to finish. Thing is, I use neither. So Do they auto run in the background? How can I keep them from starting?

Answer:CCleaner needs to close microsoft edge and internet explorer?

never receive this message unless they are open, the browsers. Even shutting off Live Tile in start menu for Edge i do not think is the cause. Possible some other program is using these browsers, maybe due to Ccleaners monitoring feature found in settings.Try to disable it and see.

Hello to all, This is my first post.
Today I found out that Google had limited its search service on Edge by MicrosoftInsider.es, and this happens
This is a great hoax, and also seems to make it or for two reasons:
1. Attempt of Stop of growth of Microsoft Edge
or 2. Google Revenge
What is the solution? This:
Press F12 (if you are on a laptop press Fn + F12), This open the F12 Tools
After go to Emulation, in Browser select or Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox, and Solutionated.
Well, I hope to see their opinions and also see that users of Google in Edge make.

I know that by rebooting the PC that this restores the start page and I also know that the start page is a script part of which logs me into my Microsoft account.
Does anyone know how to run the script without having to always reboot the computer.?

Answer:Restoring Microsoft Edge start page after cache clean.

Hi boccos. Welcome to the TensForums @boccos

If we could clarify the issue. Your problem is title "Restoring Microsoft Edge Start page after cache clean"

The start page is set within Edge and should be available every time you start Edge (the browser). If you "Clear your browsing data" and you clear all your data some data will have to be re-entered. Example email passwords for Outlook.com (hotmail, live or MSN)

The Welcome page and the logging into your Microsoft account to access your PC is not part of Edge.

Is this a question about Edge, the browser, or logging into device and a corporate log in script?

I recently got a ThinkPad Edge 15 inch with the Intel processor. I hadn't had any problems until I tried my headphones when I was playing some music from iTunes. I noticed that the sound quite frequently skips and lags (i.e. the music doesn't play like it should). I did some investigating, so I went on YouTube and found that the sound in the videos did the same thing as with iTunes. Then, I got one of my other pairs of headphones and found that the same thing still happens. I also tried playing sound online and on iTunes through the speakers and it came out just fine. Essentially, can I stop this from happening, and if so, how. Otherwise, what do I do because I use headphones a lot and this will severely irritate me over time. Thanks in advance for your help!

Answer:ThinkPad Edge 15 inch - Headphone jack skips and lags

So it turns out that I was wrong, the problem still persists regardless of if I'm using the built-in speakers or headphones through the jack.

CCleaner ironically defeats a privacy objective in forcing closure of Edge. It cleans history for future app access to this data, BUT because it closes Edge before cleaning, it doesn't prevent Edge from sending your browser actions and history to Microsoft, which happens immediately on browser close, acc to Microsoft. You have to remember to manually clear history before closing Edge (if that isn't a clever lie) and that's a habit you may not develop easily.

Answer:CCleaner Ironically Defeats One Privacy Protection for Edge

I am unable to reproduce Edge sending data to Microsoft when it's closed.

1) I loaded the page that we're on and let the network traffic settle.

2) Started network traffic capture

3) Ran CCleaner, selecting 'Yes' for the 'Close Edge and Internet Explorer' prompt (which closed Edge and deleted history).

In the Edge settings I have Edge set to sync Favourites and Reading List across windows devices as I have a Windows Phone, so it will sync, but it doesn't do it on browser close.

In Windows Settings > Accounts > Sync Your Settings I have Theme, Internet Explorer Settings and Passwords set to off. However, the bottom three are set to on so they will sync, but they don't do it on browser close.
As you can see from the below screenshot, Edge didn't send any data at all when it was closed by CCleaner. The green lines are non-public local traffic between my router and my PC. The line in the middle is a DNS request for www[.]piriform.com, which occurred when I opened CCleaner. No actual traffic is captured going to/from www[.]piriform.com because I don't have CCleaner whitelisted in my outbound firewall rules. Therefore, I can't reproduce what you are experiencing, Edge just closes for me.


However, even disregarding ISP/DNS logs, unfortunately you have very little privacy of what sites you're visiting on the internet anyway. I once blocked all Google and Google owned company domains from loading any content, but I had to reverse it soon afterwards because it ... Read more

Edge won't connect to internet or load anythingI can't close tabs in EdgeThe "Close all tabs" option in edge doesn't work, only closes 1 tabI can only get Edge to close using Task ManagerWindows Store apps like Twitter and Netflix won't connect and also sometimes won't closeI can't check for Windows updates through settings (won't connect again)

The internet works on third party apps that weren't downloaded in the Windows Store, like Chrome, Firefox, Opera, and Spotify. Does anyone have any idea what could be causing this or how I could fix it? Thanks so much!

Hi ineedhelppls. Welcome to the TenForums @ineedhelppls

First thing I would do is run these commands at command prompt(admin). In the following commands do not key in the information in brackets, it is there to tell you what command does.

ipconfig /flushdns (Clear the dns cache)
nbtstat -RR (release and refesh NetBIOS names)
netsh int ip reset (reset ip settings)
netsh winsock reset (Reset Winsock Catalog)

Test.

Then I would disable IPv6. You will notice it can be enabled just as easy.

https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/...nts-in-windows

If you still get issues I would recommend a network reset. You will lose wireless passwords.

Start=>Settings=>Network and Internet=> scroll down to bottom on the right hand side, last option, Network Reset.

Or any other help.THANKS!

Answer:I have lost my Recovery HDD with pre installed windows 7 on ThinkPad Edge 13 edge PLS Need HElp!

This is why one should burn recovery media before fiddling with the HD.
 
One option would be to download a legal Windows 7 ISO and install it.  Or borrow one.  You can use the product key on the bottom of your machine (or in the battery compartment) to activate the installation.  You may have to use the phone option to activate.
 
Working Legal Windows 7 Download Links 
 
To do this you must install the same version of Windows that came on your machine - but it can be either 32 or 64 bit.
 
Your machine came with Win7 Home Basic 32.  I can't say for certain that these "all version" ISOs include that version, but you can try and see.
 
Once you have Windows installed, go to the Lenovo support page and enter your machine type.  That will take you to a list of drivers and apps to download.  Expand the ThinkVantage option and install ThinkVantage System Update.  You can then run it and it will download and install the other software automatically.
 
I'm basing this on what I see on the US pages.  Yours may be different.
 
Good luck,
Z.

Answer:Display on XPS Infiniti edge to edge now so small cannot read anything

I didn't even realize you could go that high.  When I tried 250%, some things became so large that it became impossible to click important buttons since there wasn't enough display area to present them.  It sounds like your genealogy program isn't scaling-aware.  Also note that in some cases, after changing the scaling setting, you need to log off and back onto Windows for the change to fully take effect.
Also, what version of Windows are you running?  The display scaling functionality has changed significantly with each release of Windows from Win7 on, including within the various releases of Windows 10.

Hello, I just bought an Edge 15 and I'm wondering if backlight bleed is a common problem with it. There are several places around the edge of the display where the backlight discolors the screen. I've attached a picture; note the top edge of the screen especially. Is this normal, or is it worth looking into a repair?  Also, I'm surprised that this model does not appear on Lenovo's website at all. I have only found one review for it, and it seems Best Buy was the only one to sell it. Anyone know about that? EDIT: Apparently my thread was moved to the ThinkPad Edge forum, though I'm pretty sure that this is not a ThinkPad Edge series device (as far as I can tell that series was discontinued and this was not ThinkPad branded). If someone could clarify that would be awesome. Thanks!

It should create four partitions: recovery, EFI, MSR and Windows partition. But in my case only two partitions were created: MSR and Windows partition. So it means that Windows are not instaled in UEFI mode. Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong?Thank you.

You could also expand the wireless adapter in Device Manager and see what version of the driver you have and match it with the driver version in your Drive Matrix .  Open the WirelessLAN list and at the bottom you'll see adapters labeled ThinkPad.  It could be one of two.  If you click on the blue text, "Learn more" ,at the bottom of the page that comes up it will list previous versions of the driver.  You should be able to find your driver from that.
 
Regards,
Dave

Hello I have a Lenovo Edge 330 (E330), with win 7 pro pre-installed. I'm annoyed by all the software that's installed together with the laptop, and I'd rather want the laptop with a clean install of Win 7. I have a Win 7 Enterprise, but not a Pro. If I attempt to install Win 7 Ent., would this cause any trouble? Drivers for all hardware seems to be available from the support site, that shouldn't cause any problem. Just need to now if there are any bumps on the road ahead? Best regards FrankDenmark













Solved!

Go to Solution.

Answer:Windows clean install on Lenovo Edge

Hi Frank and welcome to the Community,
 
The first think you should do is burn a set of recovery discs.
 
Once you install Enterprise, download and run ThinkVantage System Update  .   This should find and install the drivers for the system.
 
Also, on your C: drive, there is a folder called SWTOOLS.  This contains your drivers and applications.  You could copy this to a flash drive and use it to reinstall drivers.  Most of the drivers in there contain their installers.

Tried using the recovery tool to reset to factory defaults which kept giving me various errors so went ahead and downloaded the windows media installation tool to a clean flash drive to do a clean wipe and fresh install. Booted up from the flash drive and it won't detect my hard drive. Using the command prompt and DISKPART the hard drive is not listed, like its not even there. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated?

On my laptop which has Windows 10, Microsoft Edge will not open at all.    Can someone tell me what to do please?Judy

Answer:Microsoft Edge

Friend of mine had same issue. He used a restore point to get edge to work again. Somehow it got corrupted. On another friends system where edge stopped working Firefox was placed onto a thumb drive and installed as a browser replacement in which they then were able to download malwarebytes and remove infection that killed edge. So these are 2 methods. 3rd method would be get all your data off of the computer and then perform clean install from recovery media.

Microsoft Edge is the rebranding / reworked IE for Win/10 but . . .




Users and companies that cannot load their websites or apps because of the new engine -- can always turn back to Internet Explorer, which won?t be pinned to the taskbar, but will instead be available in the Start menu.Click to expand...

hmm; Incompatibility and security issues are why many left IE in the first place. Users of Firefox, Opera and Chrome have no (or few) compatibility issues so why step back into the fire???
 

Answer:Will you opt for Microsoft Edge?

I read about this a while back (when Edge (the name) was first announced). Has something changed since then? I thought the part you quoted is for those terrible businesses that have websites that require IE to work. I think Edge is a lot more cool with web standards than IE (especially older IEs) and Microsoft is basically saying if there is some site that requires IE to work properly, you will still have IE to fall back on to.

Windows 10 felt in many regards like an operating system that was not ready for release back when Microsoft released it. This was the case for the new system browser Microsoft Edge as well, as it lacked a lot of features.

While it was highly optimized, it felt like a browsing shell more than a full browser in many regards. Microsoft worked on improving Edge, and it did so over time by introducing new functionality such as browser extensions.

Still, a first impression is usually one that lasts, and that is probably one reason why the vast majority of users on Windows 10 have switched over to Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Vivaldi or any of the other third-party browsers.

So how does Microsoft get people to give Edge another chance? Ads was the answer apparently, as users have started to see taskbar advertisement on Windows 10 like the one spotted by Brad Chacos below.
These ads appear over the Edge icon in the Windows 10 taskbar, even when Edge is not open. They do appear only when Edge is not the default system browser but that covers the majority of Windows 10 systems.

Since it advertises Microsoft Edge and Microsoft Rewards, it is possible that the campaign is reserved to the United States. The reason for this is simple: Microsoft Rewards are only available in the US right now.

This is not the only ad that promotes Microsoft Edge that users may see however. Microsoft is pushing ads in the Action Center as well stating that Chrome is draining battery fast and that switching ... Read more

I am beginning to think that I gave Microsoft Edge a bad Rep. I switched to Google Chrome and now I am still having problems with logging onto web pages. I think that it may be a Windows 10 problem. I use CCleaner every night before I shut down so I know that it is not a "buildup" of excess files on my computer. At first Chrome was a little faster than Edge and I was satisfied but now the same old thing is happening. I have 8 Gigs of RAM. That should be enough to have a speedy computing experience. I do not know much about other Browsers such as Firefox or any other. Can anyone tell me what is going on? I have not tried IE. I can bring up IE with Cortana or just find it in the apps.

Any advice will be helpful,

Jay

Answer:Microsoft Edge Bad Rep.

Have you scanned with your AV for malware, or could it be the AV causing the slow performance ? Disable the AV to check.

Check Event Viewer and Troubleshoot (Control Panel/Security & Maintenance/Troubleshoot

How do I enable or be able to sync my data on Edge if I format and freshly install windows in future? is this even possible or Microsoft is still working on it because I cannot find it anywhere to sign-in in the browser

Answer:Microsoft Edge

You can sync reading lists and favorites at the moment. Probably need to be signed in with a MS account to the computer, and probably need the latest updates from MS (The major Update everyone is talking about). Edge is still having stuff slowly added to it. Next is probably going to be [expanded] support for extensions.
