I only use google chrome, and have removed IE from windows with the remove default windows tool in windows 7. Is that why flash does not show up in Ccleaner? is there a way to add it manually so it will delete flash cookies?
Ccleaner doesn't have flash listed under multimedia?(15 posts)
In Ccleaner go to options ,then include ,add folders ,then navigate to the folder that LH, linked to in the above post.
Add that folder .Then on the Cleaner tab,scroll down to the Advanced section and check the custom files and folders box.
Its a hidden folder you need to enable show hidden files and folders .
Control panel then select folder options. then the view tab ,and select the show hidden files option.
The default flash locations are here :
On Windows XP, the flash cookies are stored under C:\Documents and Settings\[Your Profile]\Application Data\Macromedia\Flash Player\#SharedObjects\[Random Name]\[Web Site Path].
On Windows 7/Vista, the flash cookies are stored under C:\Users\[Your Profile]\AppData\Roaming\Macromedia\Flash Player\#SharedObjects\[Random Name]\[Web Site Path]
Ok so i just realized that you need to check add custom files under the windows tab. i ran ccleaner and checked adobe flash settings, it still showed items in the history.
i did notice that when i delete all sites in flash player settings like in https://www.howtogeek.com/howto/7302/delete-flash-cookies-to-improve-your-privacy-online/ it also deletes info from C:\Users\[Your Profile]\AppData\Roaming\Macromedia\Flash Player\macromedia.com\support\flashplayer\sys\[web site path].
Does ccleaner normally clean out those folders when it does have flash listed under the applications tab?
Not sure if my memory is faulty, but after a clean install of Win 7, then Ccleaner, it showed no Flash Player box under Multimedia. Then, a few days later, it does. I have IE8, & don't use Chrome. Did your 'Flash Player' selection disappear after you removed IE?
I don't remember if it did or didn't have a flash selection before i removed IE. That is interesting maybe Ccleaner doesn't recognize flash without IE. I wonder if someone who uses Firefox and removed IE has a flash selection. it may just be a Chrome thing.
