I have recently been having some problems with running CCleaner. I think it's a great program for deleting a lot of crap from your computer, however in the past few months it's been awfully slow.
I exit all open applications and then open CCleaner and hit "Run Cleaner". Usually, this took between 30-60 seconds to run and typically deleted a couple of hundred of MB or more.
When I have run it recently, it's been sticking on 33% for five minutes or more telling me that it's scanning "System. Windows log files". After up to ten minutes later, it will proceed and then - at 45% - tell me that Google Chrome is open and whether I would like CCleaner to shut it (even though Chrome isn't open). I click yes and it then tells me that I must force quit Chrome which I do.
The most recent scan I did took ten minutes and only deleted 30MB!
Is there something on my PC that may be slowing it down?
Thanks for the help.
