CCleaner - command line - delete cookies

Post by ChrisGreaves »

I am doing something wrong (again) I fear.
Acer Laptop Win10-2004; CCleaner v5.66.7716 (64 bit).

When I run CCleaner manually, I choose Options, Cookies, and then choose the Custom Clean option and the cookies are GONE! This is good.

I read through https://www.ccleaner.com/docs/ccleaner/advanced-usage/command-line-parameters and in a CMD prompt (Administrator) used the line

Code: Select all

"C:\Program Files\CCleaner\CCleaner64.exe" /Auto
This ran in the blink of an eye, but then I expected that; I figured that the data was already loaded into memory from my manual efforts.
I re-ran manually and the cookies are still there; I exited CCleaner.
I ran the command

Code: Select all

 "C:\Program Files\CCleaner\CCleaner64.exe" /EXPERT
in the hopes that exporting the three INI files might result in action, and immediately ran

Code: Select all

"C:\Program Files\CCleaner\CCleaner64.exe" /Auto
I re-ran manually and the cookies are still there; I exited.

I have not tried the /Delete parameter because I am not interested in deleting files from the command line; just cookies.

The INI file exists and has a list of cookies-to-save.
I saw nothing in the INI file tips to suggest further actions/settings.

If anyone knows how to delete cookies from the command line I’d be grateful for tips.

Thanks
Chris
