Hello,

A friend of my suggested that I run CCleaner on my Windows 10 Dell laptop. But after I ran it, all of my Internet accounts said that they didn't recognize my computer. What did CCleaner delete from my hard drive to cause that?

Thank you

It deleted all your cookies. You would have to relogin to those sites so you get the cookie again and then Ccleaner to not delete cookies for whatever browser you are using or you would have to go into options and setup the cookies to keep. Let me know if you need more help. Are you also running Malwarebytes to keep malware out of your system? If not, I would highly recommend it.

I would suggest you to NOT use any 3:d party cleaners, boosters, driverdownloaders at all.. they may cause more issues than thay are claimed to fix..

If you have issues with low diskspace you should use the built in DISKCLEANER and select to erase systemfiles (that is old windows update files that are saved for uninstalling a update if needed).. That is all!

There is no gain in cleaning the registry etc. Erasing shadowcopies makes it harder to skip back to a time when your computer worked well..

And malwarebytes is still CRAP if you use its realtimescanner.. (as a second opinion it will work, togeher with other onetime-scanners)
There is a reason to why I say this, and it is the poor points malwarebytes premium keeps getting in tests..

Only 4,5 in protection, only 4 in performance.. That is below standard..(giving poor protection while slowing your pc down alot) https://www.av-test.org/en/antivirus/home-windows/
try https://home.sophos.com instead.. FREE or PREMIUM..
